Bad Ratz is a hidden deal in the same way that finding a **** in your pocket for only fifty cents is a hidden deal. Someone might get excited by that, but not sane people.

Note that Amazon is price matching most of Steam's sale prices AND offers a $5 coupon each time you buy a game. Coupons maybe be used on "Editors Choice" games in January. Last year they had a really nice selection of stuff you could use the coupons on.

Especially if the game is Steam activated anyway (and Amazon makes a good effort to provide Steam versions), you might be better off buying from Amazon if you're in the US. You'll be activating it on Steam anyway and getting the coupon.

You might have to wait a little bit for Amazon to get the price match up so if a deal is fading fast, obviously grab it from who you can while you can.

Good call then assuming the additional content is worth it; I don't care about Steam activation. I'm not buying it anyway, just passing it along.

Speaking of games with insane download sizes, you can get a boxed copy of Rage for $4.99 with free shipping from NewEgg rather than do the 25GB download.

New Steam Sales are up while the ones from yesterday are still good for another 24 hrs.

Portal 2 for $5
ARMA 2: Combined Operations for $15
Max Payne 3 for $15
Awesomenauts for $3.40
Sleeping Dogs for $25
Prototype 2 for $20

The Season Pass for Max Payne 3 is $7.50, so it's only $2-$3 total more if you can't wait for tomorrow's Amazon deal.

They have a Max Payne 3 collection for $20, it's the game and the Season Pass.

Sleeping Dogs and Prototype are terrible "deals" compared to the price points they've been at within the last week.

I guess Arma II can finally start coming down in price now that they're going to have the stand-alone zombie game anyway and everyone will buy that.

Max Payne 3 is $11.86 at GamersGate with the 5% G2PO voucher code. Not Steam. With various discounts and trickery, I got it for $9.00 Smiley: smile

Civ V GOTY edition is 75% off on Amazon (12.49). Steam activated.
Gods and Kings NOT included of course.
But, you can get the MAC version of Gods and Kings for 75% off and activate it on Steam to get the PC version (according to commentsIt does)...
(PC version is only 50% off)

I'm debating whether or not to buy it... I enjoyed playing the Demo a few times and was always bummed when I hit the turn limit just before being able to complete something fun.

Edit:
I'm mad at myself for buying it.

Also, did Amazon change their checkout procedure? Or did I enable some semi-express "not-one-click-shopping, but two-or-three-click-shopping" mode? I don't remember changing anything and checked out the one click settings and they were off, but now when ever I checkout (even physical items) it brings up a default payment and location and a single button to confirm purchase, rather than having me select payment method, delivery location, then confirm.

Virtual currency you get for various things like rating games you've bought from GG, writing reviews, kick backs from purchases, etc. For instance, I got 964 coins ($0.96) back because they give me an incentive on any action/adventure games I buy through them. You can also buy them direct and, using the G2PO code, you knock 5% off so $20 worth of coins (for example) runs you $19.

Only really worth it if you intend to use GamersGate on occasion but it can add up if you use them with any frequency.

Amazon has started to populate its 2012 Editors Choice list. These are the games that the $5 coupons will apply towards in January. Note that the prices shown are the current prices; last year they put the stuff on rotating sales throughout the month and allowed you to stack the coupons on top of that.

I didn't notice until just yesterday the promo links in my email. I have 3 of the 5 dollar credits.
And I have two 10 dollar credits to various "free MMOs". One for Runescape and the other for a game called Stronghold Kingdoms.

And it looks like Amazon went ahead and made the Civ V + Gods and Kings bundle. 75% off, 20$ total.
Same price as Civ V + the Mac version of Gods and Kings yesterday, but now 'official'.

They updated the page, looks like we'll need a German proxy server to access the site.

Edit: This one works for me.

Edit#2: The proxy works but I think there is a Captcha that doesn't appear on the page. I keep getting a message that I'm not using the correct control words.
