    I wish I was as incompetent as Valve's developers........rolling around in one hundred dollar bills, owning the digital download industry and all. HOW INCOMPETENT!

    Im so glad I don't have the issues you guys have with Steam.....maybe its because I don't mess with other things in the computer I don't understand, my system doesn't have these issues......dunno.

    For me in fact it's quite the opposite. Better deals elsewhere (all this years AAA titles that I bought were not from Steam) and Steam going stronger as a platform where I have all my games, friends who share gaming, BIG SCREEN for my TV and apps for my Android devices.
    It has flaws but it's the best there is around. In comparison Origin and uplay are bad jokes, unfortunately not all titles can be added to Steam so I must face the crap from the other two. That doesn't mean that I'll quit playing BF3 or Far Cry3. To get back on topic:

    Spec Ops the line, 75% off here:

    Unless /b/ or /r/ gets a hold of it, you wont have to.

    If they do, don't even try.

    for me, offline mode does work without online first except some games that implemented drm other than steam such as GFWL games.

    Is it worth it to pick up The Witcher (both 1 and 2) during this sale? I have heard good things about them and very much enjoy Dragon Age/Fallout 3 and New Vegas/Oblivion and Skyrim, etc.

    Do they follow a significantly similar style?

    It has a different combat system, might want to look into youtube videos for that (thats the only downside for most people, though i never had a problem with it). I really liked W1 for its graphics, story and gameplay. Wast that repetitive or boring. W1 isnt open world like skyrim (more like Kingdom of amalur).

    If your an rpg fan, its definitely worth getting. Also it has mature content.

    Not really. 1 was more RPG, less TPS (third person slasher). They're both good but I prefer 1.

    I got both back on the 19th when GOG had them for $5-$7.49.

    Steam is not showing all flash sales, 3DMark11 for $4.99 as well as 3DMark Vantage. The flash sale is almost over, get it quick.

    Bought Grand Theft Auto IV yesterday during the steam sale. Going to play it next year before GTA5 releases to get ready for it!

    Buy Max Payne 3, it is totally worth it. Especially at such a low price, i bought it earlier on Amazon, same price (for Season Pass too).

    I think I might finally get BF3 Premium at this price, but I've never bought digital content from Amazon before. Do you HAVE to download it as soon as you purchase it? Do they email you a code to activate on Origin? How does it work? Anyone?

    No, it has a Digital Games Library where you can download and/or copy the key. All you got to do is log in to view. There's no limitations on redownloading either.

    My guess is all you're really buying is a key that goes into Origin/Battlelog but don't quote me on that.


    Edit: I just bought it. The Amazon key redeems in Origin so you can download it from Origin or Amazon.
