    So not really an on sale thing but if anyone sees Dust: An Elysian Tale on sale I suggest picking it up I paid $7.49 during the steam sale and for a one man game its pretty damn good. One of the better purchases I made during the summer sale. Definitely a must play with anyone that was a fan of old school RPGs like Legend of Mana etc.

    Lol. Always, if I buy a game it'll be cheaper in a couple weeks. I got dishonored for $10 on steam summer sales.

    I think I'm gonna get those dlc tho

    Dishonored was worth full price. If I wasn't trying to pinch pennies I'd buy those DLC in a second. Guess I'll wait until winter Steam Sales.

    In your opinion. :p

    I wouldn't pay more than $5 for it and that would be a conflicted purchase.

    Nah, It's worth at least $10. It's pretty good, once you figure out how to do all the stupid quick time event things; I got shredded by a wolf like 20 times before I finally figured out what to do on one of them, lol.

    The same damn thing happened to me but that is really only the tip of the iceberg.
    There was a lot of other things that annoyed me like the whole game being on rails, introducing hunting and not using it beyond the intro, really only one type of human enemy that gets bland, and all the scripted sequences with no real choices throughout the entire game. I've played Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider II, Tomb Raider III and two of them in between (forget the names) and, excepting the first three, they've all been poor at best. Tomb Raider (2013) is better than those in between but doesn't even come close to the first three. They had tough puzzles (strategy guide damn near required), difficult enemies, and a ton of variety; Tomb Raider (2013) lacks all of the above.

    I had never played the TR franchise, but I just started with the new one, and I'm a fan now. Game plays well to me, looks pretty, but I haven't gotten too far into it yet. I'm not familiar enough to lament with Ford's qualms, but for a noob like me it's all good :) and for $1, that's a spectacular deal :)

    Buying a set for myself and will giveaway the BF3 key if possible...also the Sims probably because I won't play that.

    Question...if I only plan to use Steam keys, can the Origin keys be given away for the same games?

    Why didnt they include dead space 2? (never played those series)

    Also, with this BF3 you can MP right? What does the Premium version get you extra?

    They may add dead space 2 later as a bonus for buying in the first week.

    Looks like the cd keys in steam and the origin keys are different so I think so.
    You could just buy a gift set for a $1 to giveaway, this is for charity EA doesn't get a cent.

    Expansions. You can buy them separately.


    I suspect there isn't going to be a bonus on this one because EA isn't getting a dime from the sale. Although...if they add Dragon Age II I'd be interested.
