Bargain Thread 2018


DCS is having its summer sale right now: half off on just about everything except the Hornet and the Persian Gulf map.


Hmm, maybe I’ll be getting a discount on Overload after all.


They really never want me to buy Nier Autonoma do they…


Does anyone know if either of these two games require an EA account in order to play them on Steam?


The second one used to require a Bioware account to activate some stuff if I recall, but there was talks of those shutting down?


No, Mass Effect on Steam does not require an EA account. Wanting to force EA accounts was I believe part (though not all) of why EA stopped selling their new games on Steam.

That said, you should play Mass Effect 2 on Origin because you should play it with at the very least the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC and it benefits from some of the other stuff, and if you can even install DLC to the Steam version anymore you certainly can’t (and never could) install it through Steam. And it’s a massive PITA the way you used to have to do it. Whereas on Origin it’s installed through Origin and is easy. Plus, you’ll want to play ME3, and you have to do that on Origin.

Or you could just play the first one, which is the best and mostly stands alone anyway, and leave it at that. (ME1 only has one DLC of note and it’s a manual install anyway.)


I really like the Multiplayer aspect of 3.



Battletech Digital Deluxe $10.39


And its DEAD.


What the F? For some reason, seeing it is so much less is… I don’t know.


That HAS to be a mistake, right? Is it basically XCOM with mechs?


Yeah, I haven’t seen it for less than $30 or so, so it must be an error.


Appears to be an error- you can’t add it to your cart.


Fanatical just started a sale on it for $26.79.


Everyone needs to jump on this.


Samsung 128GB EVO+ UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card $36.00


The UHS-3 version is even cheaper on Amazon.


Not a fan of buying these products from Amazon anymore, especially from 3rd party, but good to know! It is indeed a lower price.


Fanatical has been posting new $1 bundles all week.

The Dollar Viva Bundle has 24 Steam games (HOGs mostly) for $1.

The Dollar Mega Bundle has 28 Steam games, a mix of indies, HOGs and casual games, for $1.

The Dollar Loco Bundle has 10 Steam games for $1. This bundle includes the Labyronia 1 & 2, Legend of Mysteria and Greyfox RPGs (RPG Maker games) among others.

The Dollar Loot Bundle is 25 Steam indie games you’ve never heard of for $1.

The Dollar Classics Bundle is 21 “classic” (meaning old and probably sloppily ported) games on Steam for $1. Includes Daemonsgate, a 1993 DOS RPG game I own in it’s original big box and never thought I would see ported to anything, much less Steam. I can guaranty it has not aged well. =)

The Dollar Collector’s Bundle is 10 more indie Steam games for $1.

The Indie Legends 8 Bundle is still live, and a bargain at $3.49 for Steam keys to Convoy, Train Valley, Among the Sleep and Organ Trail Complete among others.

And the Slitherine Reloaded Bundle is also a good deal at $5.49 (for all three tiers) if you don’t already own Alea Jacta Est, Hell, Advanced Tactics Gold or Pandora : First Contact among others.

Hidden Steam Sale Deal : If you’re interested in the 1C ARPG Fall of Light, which is on sale for $4.94 (67%), and you already own King’s Bounty : Dark Side Premium Edition, you can get Fall of Light Bundled for only $3.70 (75%). Steam bundle magic!



I figure it shoudl be at least good enough to entertain a 4 year old.


I like toys and I have two little boys, yet that seems overpriced (and potentially super annoying) to me, even at the sale price. The original price of $150 seems crazy.

As a parent, I try to avoid getting overly noisy toys as presents for other kids. It’s a golden rule kind of thing.
