Anyone interested in Life Is Strange? I've seen it on the Humble Store a few times now and know that the first episode is coming at the end of the month, was just curious if there was any interest in it yet!
 
Guess I' am one of you guys :)

Gotta love Emma, she's only 10 days older than me but she is damn hot!

Hmm, hello ? Who are you guys ?
Oh man, each time I come back here I can't recognize half the posters. It's intimidating. But Woo is back and THE other great gaffer with a cat is just a few pages back. A man gotta have points of reference :p

I hope you're talking about me, even though I could understand if you weren't, as I'm not simply another great gaffer but arguably the best one.


best gaf cat is still woo's, though :3

haha. I knew it. Once I saw Sid Meier's Pirates! Gold Plus (Classic) hit Groupees I made an educated guess that the rest were sure to follow. That is why I avoided those Classic War/Explorer/Adventure packs.
 
Weekend Deal:



80% off $9.99. Individual games are 75% off.

Nice. Good thing I waited on getting the rest of the CF catalog during the Holiday sale. Will get Fortune Summoners and Chantelise only to support SpaceDrake and his hard work towards localizing Second Chapter.

Could someone conceivably trade Anno 1404 Gold from Britain to the US?

Whenever the series gets a franchise discount, 1404 goes on sale as well in other regions, but not in the US.

I believe so. The blocked regions when it comes to gifting and trading is from countries with very low monetary value (Russia, Indonesia, Brazil, etc.) I don't think UK is restricted like those.

Well if Carpe Fulger had this weekend planned for a while now, it sort of explains why they originally had no discounts during the winter sale.

Edit: Shame they didn't use this promotion to add trading cards and backgrounds to the games.

Yes, there's nothing preventing it. Trading blocks only affects regions that get significant discount.

Thought Norway would be cheapest: https://steamdb.info/sub/6849/ (iirc, fantomena is from Norway)

Nice to see games not using $=€ and being actually similar price.

Should have jumped on that during the sale when Anno was on a franchise sale.

Recettear is well worth $5 and the full bundle if you have none of them is probably worth the $10, but neither of the other two games are anything close to as great as Recettear is.

This Should've been a Dolphin Dating Sim. Hatoful Dolphin...
There is no reason for Classroom Aquatic to be underwater, but I’m so glad it is. A trivia stealth game, you play the only human in an underwater classroom and have to find ways to cheat off of your dolphin classmates. What’s more, it’s being designed specifically with the Oculus Rift in mind, so you’ll be able to lean over and sneak a peek at your neighbors test like it’s grade school all over again.

I imagine they wanted to go to 75% when they joined the sale late, but weren't going to do it without front page promotion, which was probably already filled.

Yeah, well... I think it's some shady shit, so I'm not particularly happy with them at this point. They were pretty vocal on twitter about being pissed that they couldn't be part of the sale at first and then indicating that the discounts were live... but they made no mention of the pending Weekend Deal with an even greater purchase price that was coming immediately after the sale. Ugh.

I bought Chantelise to support them.

And then I learned my lesson never to buy a game just to support a developer.
