    €7.50 with all DLC.

    If it was €5 including all DLC I would've bought it.

    Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

    That sucks! I bought Ys Origin ealier this week for € 15.99. Now it's 60% off. Lets petition and see if they're willing to refund a bit ;-)

    Ohhh... Lets grab the other Ys game (Ys The Oath in Felghana) now that it's only €4.07 ;-)

    The op meant it as a joke, but Steam *does* suck.

    I mean, i just started it.. update news pops up "new content available for your game". So i guess Valve decided to gift me Heroes of Might and Magic VI now or what? Now thats a nice move. Oh wait, they don't, they simply are too lazy to check if someone actuall has the game before showing this.

    Also, those sales are the only reason ever to buy something on Steam, at least regarding price. It's ridiciously overpriced normally. And even with sales, if a game still costs twice as much in your region then elsewhere, you shouldn't support it, otherwise, they keep doing this.

    And don't start with "you should move to x" - Steam is the only shop i know where even the US gets shafted, though it's considerably less then the other regions.

    But yeah, nice sales.

    I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
    And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
    Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
    And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

    That is why i never buy anything from Steam at normal price around the times of their various sales. Prices end up so low you can't help but regret full price.

    i must say in steams defence ..although at times they do overcharge,if you wait unlike me the prices come crashing down..i guess i learnt my lesson..just bough divine divinity for £2.99 or £3.99.one hell of a game evn if it is 10 yr old.

  • xmentyxmenty Member UncommonPosts: 716

    That is why I don't understand people buying TSW lifetime subs when you can buy 10 good games at $60.

    But I still think Steam Christmas sales prices are better.

    I was hoping that Steam will have a dirt cheap sales on Kingdom Of Amalur.

    I really want to play that game while waiting for GW2 and Planetside 2.

    Pardon my English as it is not my 1st language :)

  • NevulusNevulus Member UncommonPosts: 1,288

    Yeah i bought Anno 2070 full price few weeks ago, last night I saw it on sale. It's my own fault for wanting the game so bad when I could've waited.

     

    Overall i do enjoy the Steam service.

    When it comes to older games I never got around to playing, but wanted to someday, i wait for them to go on sale in steam.  I got the entire tomb raider series (i have the original for ps1) for like $4.99 when it was on sale.  Amazing deals if you ask me :D

  • TrionicusTrionicus Member UncommonPosts: 498

    I wanted to troll your choice of game but I honestly have so many issues with steam as is, I'm at the point where if someone blames steam for world hunger or cancer I'll be onboard.

  • ReizlaReizla Member RarePosts: 4,080

    Looking at Skyrim now. DAILY DEAL ends in 32h45m. What day..? Alpha Centaury day..? :D

    Haha, I just couldn't resist at THAT price!

    hahaha yeah indeed that sucks and understandable, I would try and contact Steam explain that you just bought it a week before and just give that a try. But do so with a reasonable voice, perhaps suggest that you do not want a refund but maybe they could transfer a game of your choosing within the overpaid amount you spend on TW2 + Exp.

    But the bargains are great never the less.

  • fivorothfivoroth Member UncommonPosts: 3,916

    Never buy a game before Steam's summer sale or their Xmas sale. The game you bought is definitely going to go on sale.

    Another rule of thumb is to never buy a game you want during the summer/xmas sale when it's not on a daily deal. It will probably go on a daily sale which will save you another 25-30%. If it doesn't wait till the last daily sale and if it is not on that buy it with the general discount (most games are discounted 20-50% throughout the entire summer/xmas sale).

    Most people learn these things the hard way :D

    ive had the same thing happen to me on steam a few times. its now got to the point that i hardle ever buy anything until it comes on sale cause chances are it will be on sale at some point. Max Payne 3 is a classic example. was very tempted to get it at release but was pretty sure it would be on sale at some point soon.... and lo and behold.... steam summer sale max payne 3 £15 :D

    If someone is talking in general chat in a language you dont understand, chances are they're not talking to you. So chill out and stop bitching about it!
