    who said anything about codes?

    Many games are just the installers that don't have anything to do with steam

    Steam don't give a fuck what amazon do, they get the same income either way.

    Ah I only looked at Dead Island and the Ultimate Dreamcast Pack which both have Steam codes.

    Still, point remains. It's like them not banning people for using VPNs unless they are using them to buy games cheaper.

    Some of them do have steam codes, the point stands, why would valve care what amazon do with the codes? They still get the same income/have already been paid.

    I heard about people having probs with codes bought from dodgier looking russian sites (game would vanish from account, not a ban) but haven't heard about problems with amazon myself so far

    guess there would be issues if you tried to buy direct from steam with a vpn though

    I've heard two reports at CAG of people having GMG-bought games removed from their Steam library, but that's only two instances out of thousands of complaints I've read there, so the chances seem vanishingly small. I've never heard of a Steam account ban or Steam game removed after buying a code from Amazon, Gamersgate, GetGamesGo or another legitimate Western site.

    If you want to see a dodgy site, do some research on "G2Play". :D

    Mark of the Ninja has been added to Amazon's sale today, for US$3.75. I own it, so it must be good! :p

    I see The Sims 3 is 9.99 on Origin until 20th May. Is that as cheap as it's likely to go?

    Gamefly US had it for US$7.49 in January (according to Deals4Downloads), but 10 is a reasonably good sale price for The Sims 3. If you want to play it now-ish, go for it!

    Has anyone ever seen skyrim as a DD for a tenner or less? 15 on steam at the moment, waiting for it to hit that sweet spot somewhere.

    I got it for 7.50 last week from GamersGate. Really, really sorry I didn't post it up here. I did mean to, but got distracted and assumed someone else would post it...

    Next Steam sale will likely have it and all the DLC cheap. Ditto Borderlands 2, I imagine.

    No-one was interested in a FREE game?! :p

    OK, I can't quite remember how much this was last month, although I think it was a similar price. Still, some people enjoy buying directly from Steam despite the price premium, and there's also a 4-pack that lowers the price somewhat. So: Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion for 8.49.

    @PenguinJim The penny arcade game has been so cheap before that most people probably already have it.

    I kept nearly buying it in sales, but it never quite got cheap enough for me!

    "No-one was interested in a FREE game?! "

    FWIW i got a code so thanks for the heads up Jim. Do you need to have played 1 and 2 first to get the most from it?

    I hope not! I enjoyed the demo of 1 on release, but for some reason starting the full game last year was painful. It felt like a Flash game. :( And it was only 208MB. Good games are at least 1GB nowadays.

    Not sure if I'll give it another shot or not. 3 looks much better, thankfully.

    http://store.steampowered.com/sub/8672/

    or

    The new Humble weekly bundle is rather good. Alan Wake + American Nightmare, with a minimum payment of $1 for Steam keys if you're really cheap. :p

    No, from what I've read. I was interested, now I'll give it a miss.

    Sins of a Solar Empire looks great, but very complex and lacking a campaign mode apparently(?) I've read the end-game can take quite a while too once it's a given that one player is dominant.

    Can anyone advise if it's worth the sub-tenner price? I'm a fan of strategy games in general such as CoH, Civ 4, Starcraft and the Total War series; this looks a little different though, especially the learning curve. Many thanks!
  • Deleted user 22 May 2013 21:28:54
    @Aretak If I got those games would I get separate Steam keys for Alan Wake and Nightmare? It's just that I've already got Nightmare on Steam :)

    They came up as separate keys for me bud. :)

    Edit - Although it does say on the keys page -

    'Steam will not provide extra giftable copies of games you already own.'

    So....
