Anyone who has even the slightest interest in puzzle games and does not yet have Toki Tori needs to get it ASAP. $0.49 for this gem is such a steal it's not even funny.,
Just found out that Max Payne 2 is missing from Brazilian Steam.... :(

ET3D: Edit: I take it back. 90% off is always tempting. Toki Tori for $0.49 or Zeno Clash for $0.99 is not bad.
I can highly recommend Zeno Clash. It is a worthwhile experience and not too long. The combat system is surprisingly good and the story is also very nice and good presented.

Funny enough, like with the Summer Sale I'm now again at a conference and using my mobile to check for deals. Nothing worthwhile yet, however.

KotOR 2 sure lives up to its reputation, sometimes it just refuses to run, sometimes the graphics corruption makes the nvidia driver shoot itself... And sometimes it keeps running for hours without a hitch.

nijuu: New Flash Sales
Guns of Icarus Online $9.99 (-50%)
Which, according to the main page, will last for 4 days and 3 hours. Nice flash deal indeed.
Anyone else willing to label these "Steam and Amazon" from now on, since Amazon will always poach Steam sales and then we can talk about the best deals from each in the same thread?

Example: Prototype 2 for 19.99 USD on Steam, daily, the full pack was 9.99 USD on Amazon all last week, included Prototype, Prototype 2 and the DLC for 2.

Skipping between multiple threads is annoying, and this is what is keeping most of the deal posting in the big Gaming Deals thread instead.

I think Steam are in a place now where they can charge more by being the premier service. Civ5's DLC is on sale for twice as much on Steam compared to amazon but is still high on Steam's bestsellers. I think a ton of people only check Steam and they know it.

Remember that, to buy on Amazon outside of the US, you *have* to have/use a CC + you need to lie about your location, to even be able to use the service.

If that bit of trickery wasn't necessary they'd probably be doing better by a mile. Considering you still do though, there's loads of people out there who don't even look at it, since it *is* a US only service.

Yes, they way I see it. If they do not want to sell to me, then I do not want to buy from them. I am a bit strange - I will not deliberative make myself fraudulent to save a few pounds, I prefer to stay as legal as possible, even though no one cares except me.

You can substitute Gamersgate then, I guess. I am sure the deal thing would work out similarly.

Living in Georgia for a year I can assure you I know all about region restrictions now, and they are annoying. Still you can't blame companies considering the legal hassles, licensing issues, publisher agreements and everything else involved. I am sure if GOG didn't have their global or nothing stance we would have a ton more classics here than we do.

I'm certainly not blaming the publisher/developers for covering their behinds. (though I certainly appreciate the ones that at least make an effort to have fairer pricing across regions).

That said, Amazon is a simple CC/billing address IP check away from locking out the rest of the world, and the more these sales keep going the bigger the chances the publishers might start pushing for that.

Remember, Amazon managed to strong arm i-Tunes and the music industry into DRM free mp3s. Amazon does leverage the fact that they're a fucking massive retail outlet as well, these publishers aren't dealing with a digital only service, but a Walmart sized retail organization that spans the globe. I'm not so sure that the publishers get to dictate much at all to Amazon.

Well, something will have to give at some point. Either something's going to go wrong between Publishers and Amazon, or when half the world is shopping at Amazon for $ prices, something will give between the publishers and the rest of the retailers. I'm really not prone to believe the latter one will actually become a reality to be honest.

Also, it's not like this is some stance Amazon is making at the moment. They already stated there are legal reasons they have those requirements for purchases. In the best case right now, they are condoning, and not enforcing the actual accuracy of the purchasing details they are being given. That's not exactly an idealistic stance or anything, that's just playing with the rules for their own benefit.


Granted, the best profits from that tactic are probably still the titles that actually sell Steam Keys as they seem to be the most wanted by far, which kind of leaves in the middle whether this is actually a good or a bad thing for Steam in the long run.
