    Anybody bought games last year still no time to play them?

      • +3

        too many games, not enough time.

        • +2

          I have about 180 games in my Steam list, including expansions etc.

          Over 100 of them have never even been installed…

          Sales like this don't do anything to help that either :(

  • Anyone up for a Deus Ex buy in? (Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition - 8-Pack)
    Let's say $2 each to cover paypal fees. (Saving 50c over the steam price!)
    $1.50 via bank deposit.

    Need about 6 people to proceed!

    • i'm in! whats your bank details lol

    • Somebody should just do it with a Wizard Clear Advantage card and then there will be no paypal fees.

    • Guess that didn't happen!

      Did anyone buy the pack? Need 2 copies.

      • It is hard to organise these mass buy-ins. Usually relies on a more cohesive (gaming) community for this to happen, unless you like to gamble. I also have a home on PCPP and OCAU forums, so i suggest you join me for convo on there to get this happening.

  • Damn. Waited out too long and now the indie pack is gone…. :(

  • hello Alpha Protocol :-D. Cheers for the heads up

  • Excellent value bargains to be had, here. Thanks to the thread OP.

  • +1

    Cities XL 2011 is $9.99USD if you already own XL 2010.. it appears as tho the coupons are stacked hence the price.. its also giftable .. lets just hope that the memory leak was fixed in this new version and that the devs are assholes and put effort into it..

  • FML too busy playing GT5, and missed out on CS:S. Been waiting for years to get that one on special

    • Have a look at your local EB Games next time you're passing by, they quite often have older PC games on sale. Last time I was there they had TF2 for $15 and CSS for $10.

  • L4D2 BUY-IN ($5 each): Since no one is organizing it I thought I will.

    - Will charge $5 a game (due to risks involved). Game received will the the AUSTRALIAN (i.e. censored) edition.
    - Must have a total of 5 other orders (for a total of 6)
    - Must be able to do internet bank transfer, and must pay upfront (i.e. instant transfer of funds). If you don't feel comfortable paying upfront, I can accept 50% ($2.50) up front and 50% ($2.50) upon delivery.
    - Send an email to [email protected] for expression of interest and your steam ID. I will reply with the bank details and mention if we have 5 already.
    - If for some reason, it does not go through (as not enough or you are more than the 5th order) YOU WILL be paid back the full amount (before 7:00pm).
    - Latest email: 5:00pm (Melbourne time)
    - once again, email address for expression of interest: [email protected]

    I plan do to this for the other games that I find interesting in the coming days as well.

      wohoo left for dead 2 for 2.50!

      errm i mean sign me up for one for ermm… 5 dollars. half now half later yeah?


      • Haven't even finished L4D1 yet… :(

    • +4

      …. why would anyone neg me ….
      Read my post how to get it uncensored..

      • Meh, not worth $5 without the gore, considering it's such a brainless repetitive shooter. I played LFD for about 10 hours before I got bored of it.
        I might be up for future-buy ins, if they take my fancy.

        • 10 hours of fun for $5 seems pretty reasonable to me.

  • Just bought Torchlight $5 (missed out last time) and new Indie pack $5. No brainer at those prices. Might get another if Iron Grip multiplay is any good.

  • Wow the indie clever pack is very nice for $5. VVVVVV is fkn awesome (demo here: http://thelettervsixtim.es/ ), and world of goo is also a great game. Never heard of the other three, but they're a nice bonus.

  • Damn, is Team Fortress 2 going to be available

    • Most likely. Considering they have offered CS:S, L4D and now Portal. It seems likely that TF2 will follow.

    • From the leaks, it seems as though TF2 won't be getting the gift packs :(

    • +1

      TF2 in The Orange Box today :)

  • lol freedom force group buy anyone? 75c each

      you have mail

    • Also interested, but won't be here at 1PM AEST. :( Can you reserve one? Cheers!

      • +1

        I'll be here until 6 I'd say.
        Edit: I CANNOT get COD4 for that cheap, sorry fellas, L4D2 offer is still up.

        • I am having problems with my debit card - my offer is no longer valid, sorry ladies and gents.

        • bugger :(

        • Damn, was getting excited for this :(

          Can anyone else get the uncensored version and gift it this way? Can pay via paypal or bank deposit…

          Whenever I try via a vpn or a proxy I get this message: 'There seems to have been an error initializing or updating your transaction. Please wait a minute and try again or contact support for assistance.' :(

        • bangbang, that is the error I'm getting as well..

        • That error is happening without a VPN/proxy if you choose the states. I bit the bullet and bought the Oz version though..

    • thanks for this

  • Just tried using SSH Tunnel… hopefully this works…

    Short of downloading the game and trying it, is there anyway to know if it worked? I want to get another copy for my girlfriend, and I don't want to end up with 2 uncensored versions -_- I need to set up an account for her too…

    • +1

      If you go to the Steam website and log on, go to your account details where it lists all the games you've bought. If you bought the Aussie censored one it should say '(AU)' or something next to L4D2. Usually when there are differences in a game between regions they usually differentiate them like this.

      E.g with some games I've bought they say

      Titan Quest Gold (AU)
      STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl (AU)

    • If I access the store via Steam using a US IP (Steam account has an AU address), it mentions 'Low Violence Version' on L4D2's page. However, if I visit the store using my browser when not logged in and on the same IP, the message doesn't come up.

      If this is the case, can a 'US' account gift a censored version to an AU account with it remaining uncensored?

  • Anyone bought a CS Source 6 Pack yet, and wanting to sell them off?

  • Did anyone get the 6 copies of Borderlands? I'd like to get a copy too please. Please IM me or reply here if you bought it and still have extra copies.

  • God damn I'm lagging like a ***** using this VPN trick
    Anyone doing a bulk orde for uncensored L4D2?.

    • I think that was the plan but no-one was able to do it. There are hacks to uncensoring L4D2 (http://gamers-underground.com/action-fps/31893-how-uncensor-...) however I also read it cannot be played via Steam directly (here: http://l4d2.epicwinrar.com/) - unsure whether the validity of it though.

      • Yeah I'm trying to use a VPN hack to buy it but I'm laggin so bad through it that paypal won't even load

        • I had issues using PayPal on the US IP. I forgot the exact error, but it signed in successfully. The last click to complete the transaction failed. Hopefully you'll have better luck!

        • Mine wouldn't even load.

          One question,
          if i add the game to the cart, put in all the info required (fake us address blah blah) then turn off the VPN thing and pay for it under my own IP, will I still get the uncensored or will i get teh censored….

        • Lol turns out that one of my friends bought the 6 for $25 and I got one of em for free albeit censored but hey free can't complain.

    • The 6 pack from yesterday looks like it's uncensored: http://i.imgur.com/pDIMY.png so no need for any dodgy, but yeah, it was from yesterday :(

      • Can you let us know for sure once it gets played? The post above yours seems to indicate it is censored. Good to know for future reference. Cheers.

        • I can confirm that it's censored. Checked the appID and it's the Australian 550 one. But for some weird reason it doesn't say AU on the end

  • WOAH, The Orange Box for $7.50!!!!!! Definitely wasn't expecting that, thank you oh so very much Steam! :)

    Also, World of Goo for $2.50 is a no brainer.

    • I agree. Both are great choices, and the price for The Orange Box is amazing!

    • -1

      World of Goo you can easily get without paying ;)
      It's a very short game, fun but short.
      Damn these Steam deals! My wallet is getting thinner and thinner D=
      And I already got Portal while it was free, damn steam for not giving me an extra copy of portal =[
