Black Mesa is 50% off, down to $9.99.

Original Half-Life remake.  I'm pretty sure I got this for free when it was still under development, and from the looks of things the endgame is still being worked on.  Definitely worth it though if you are nostalgic about Half-Life.

Elder Scrolls games 75% off:

Should I bother with any of the Skyrim expansions?  If I resume playing the game I know I'll never even make it through all the original content, but my inner completionist is telling me to get Dawnguard and Dragonborn.

I really liked them both. They added new locations, NPCs, items, etc. that are a little different than the standard Skyrim stuff. I definitely consider Skyrim incomplete without them.

Oh, one other thing. If I understand you correctly, you have the base game but not the expansions. Buying the expansions would be silly. They're €5 each, whereas the Legendary Edition that contains them both (plus Hearthfire) is €7.50.

In good ol 'Merica, the Legendary Edition is the same cost as the two expansions.  I guess I'll get it even though I don't care about Hearthfire.

A bunch of SquareEnix/Eidos games are on sale this weekend, including Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman, Final Fantasy, and Thief series.

Has anyone played the 2014 version of Thief?  I loved the original and had the new one on my wishlist, but some of the reviews are brutal.  Maybe I'll just buy the older ones and tolerate the outdated graphics.

Ok so it's Activision sales weekend!



Lots of interesting titles, but what caught my eye is the Space Quest Collection!!!!



I used to own ALL the Space Quest titles, and was bummed as heck when they cancelled 7.
4 & 6 are some of the funniest games I've ever played, and they're the spiritual ancestors of Futurama, as far as I'm concerned.

Humble Telltale bundle

I count this on this thread since the games are available for steam. But not for linux. So tough luck to Andrew.

I played a bit of it, but it didn't click with me. Way too much emphasis on stupid little QTE sequences and other button prompts. In the old games, you'd jump up to a ledge. In the reboot, you'd [press E to climb ledge].

Rocket League is free for 3 days (until April 24th) and 40% if you decide to buy it.


I haven't played it yet but the reviews are great so I'm gonna use the weekend to try it out and decide.

It should go without saying that the Steam Winter Sale is now underway.

I haven't spotted anything crazy cheap yet, but lots of stuff from the last two years is 50-66% off.
