Rarity of ammo becomes a non-issue soon enough. Stronghold upgrades will refill gas/water/health/ammo. Rather, the limitation is on how much you can carry at a time, and using it appropriately to meet the "challenges" that let you level up.

I really want this game, but I really despise EA/Origin. So I still wait for it to hit the $10 mark for the deluxe.

The deluxe content is trash anyway. At least buy it base for $10

GMG has a general sale code WINTER-ISCMNG-22PERC for 22% off for the next day and a half I think. Also, you have to log in to see their VIP page, but they often have sales there that no one else has. They have rocket league for $15 - and I don't know if you can combine sales with discount codes, but if you can, it gets it down below $12. It's a fantastic game and I'll probably make a thread about it when I get unlazy.

That code should work for preorders too and stuff so if you're silly enough to want to pay full price for a game anyway, you might as well do it through GMG.

Guild of Dungeoneering

Anyone else playing this? It's a fun little indie turn-based dungeon crawler, in which you recruit a "guild" of explorers to fight monsters and ultimately take down another rival guild. The cool thing is that your character stats are reset to zero at the start of each adventure, so your special attacks are entirely dependent on random loot you earn from battles. I knew it was something special after watching three complete Let's Plays using completely different characters and battle strategies.

Anyway, it's 40% off this week on Steam. I purchased it yesterday at full price.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is down to $18 (from $60) at GameStop online for a Steam key. Season Pass is $9 although TR 2013's DLC was pretty lame.

Also, this week's Humble Weekly is pretty good: Ink, Speedrunners, Divekick, Grim Fandango Remastered and Dead State all for under $3 (combined) at the moment.

That's a really good price, though it's "download to the US only"

Still, there's some self paced training stuff I want to get through first before I'll pick it up.

I assume they mean that they only sell the Steam key to US addresses due to distribution agreements. Amazon is the same way about their digital purchases. Typically the key itself is a ROW key since it's rare for a Steam key to be North America (much less United States) specific.

Yeah, maybe it was a glitch or error (heck of a discount for a just released game).

Whether or not it's supposed to be that cheap, that's not what they're charging. If you add it to your cart it's $59.99.

Whoops.

Yeah, it ran overnight and this morning but a little while ago it appears to have been fixed/changed.

Thanks for the heads up, worth it just for Grim Fandango.

ETA: It's on for another 10 hours in case anyone's interested.

WinGameStore is having a sale on a bunch of Steam games. Looks like set sales and then rotating "flash" sales through March 1st. A lot of 66-75% deals, albeit it mainly on some older or indie type stuff.

Fallout 4 is $30 from Amazon (not digital, looks like they're clearing out physical stock?)

It's worth noting that this is 20% off. $20 off a purchase greater than 10 bucks would be a pretty sweet deal, though!

Ryse: Son of Rome on sale from Steam for $4.99. Not a great game overall, but for what fun there is to be had, that's probably the right price.

Last 24 hours of the Green Man Gaming sale. As usual, high likelihood anything on sale worth owning you already do, but worth a look if there's something from 2014 and back that you're missing.

Endless legend just released a new expansion that's supposed to beef up the gameplay during winter.

In celebration they are heavily discounting most Endless games:

Endless Legend is a great and fresh take on 4X, and I've heard really good things about Dungeon of the Endless.

Endless space emperor edition is an amazing, slick, 4X space game, and for $6 is a no brainer if you like strategy or space games
