    I think you only get the bonuses when you've preordered that month/are subscribed.

    Not a bad bundle if you've been living under a rock for years or only just started gaming.

    The new Humble Bundle is pretty OK. Tropico 5, Chivalry, Victor Vran (a decent ARPG), Brothers a tale of two sons, and some other stuff for BTA.

    I have humble gift links for the following games;

    • WARMACHINE Tactics
    • Shadowrun Chronicles - Boston Lockdown
    • Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
    • Ultimate General Gettysburg

    Shoot me a PM if you want any of them, I certainly don't.

    Dang it should've gotten that humble monthly, it also included renowned explorers, a sweet looking indie title that only has a base price of $19.99 but won't be heavily discounted for a while. That's three games I wanted!

    But now mad max is the pre-release for May so I'm signing up. Cheapest I've seen mad max is either 40% or 50% of the $59.99 base price so this is a steal no matter what else is in the bundle. It's like 80% off even if it's just Mad Max.

    I know I will play it for like 3 hours the day I get it, have no time to continue, then two years later see a price drop and kick myself over $5 but hey sometimes you gotta just do it.

    The new bundle is good too, telltale bundle, get walking dead s1, back to the future and more for a buck, bta is tales from the borderlands and the wolf among us. $12 gets you game of thrones and walking dead s2. I have all the walking deads and wolf, so probably won't bite, but they are excellent games.

    Steam summer sale has started, what's everyone going to get?

    If I manage to sell some leftover cards I think I'll have enough for Civ 5 Complete (11,26 EUR), I can't even put them on sale as Steam is under a lot of load.

    http://store.steampowered.com/


    EDIT:

    managed to sell everything, Civ 5 Complete is in the house!

    Nothing. I have too many games to play as it is and as much as I want to buy more I just can't allow myself to do so unless its like 90% off.

    So far Medal of Honor Airborne for $2.50 is my only purchase. All the games I'm really excited about either just came out and don't have deep discounts or have not come out yet.

    Have I finally reached my saturation point with Steam sales?

    I only picked up Stardew Valley after having my eye on it since Feb. I too have a backlog already.

    The Steam sale starts and within hours the pound drops dramatically. Well, I wasn't planning to buy much, anyway. :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure using up "eye-ing time" on a game for 4 months is worth it for a saving of like 3$... I expected the game to have a slightly better sale price. Actually all the games on my wishlist are at 40-50% at most. Those at deeper discounts I might as well delete from my wishlist because it turns out I don't really want them. Only surprising deal since to be Doom at 40% off already for a rather new and popular game. This is the only deal that comes close to what I remember from like the 2011-2012 era of sales hehe.

    I'm noticing that a lot of the cheaper indie games I have on my wishlist aren't going at discounts much bigger than 33%, even when they're old-ish. I guess the ever increasing popularity of these sorts of titles make it less likely they will sell them for 2$... Which is pretty much what happens when you discount a 10$ game at 75%.

    Did valve/publishers already raise prices in response to the FX turmoil today? :lol: That's amazing and sad at the same time.

    The prices don't appear to have changed, but then Steam requires me to buy in pounds anyway. If I was buying online, I'd already be affected.
