$5 PC games deal from Direct2drive

Post by Feaduin » Tue Sep 22, 2009 9:56 am

For their 5th anniversary, they are doing a PC game blowout for only 5 bucks each. Glancing at the titles, there are some really great games in there. Like if you STILL haven't played Bioshock, get it now! You can't end life missing out on such a great game!

What happens in the next 139 hours and 39 seconds that will stop your temptation?

My random guess is you are going to jail.

If they were giving the games away for free, it wouldn't be worth infecting my computer with motherfucking SecuROM.

I'll confirm later with Titan Quest, but supposedly at least the Saints Row 2 D2D code also works on Steam...

29.95 is actually a damn good price for Saints Row 2. Waiting for it to hit that price point on 360 or PS3 probably as a greatest hit to pick it up.
Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down, and whisper "no."

1) It's already that much on 360/PS3 so...hooray!

2) I brought it up because Saints Row 2 was one of the $5 games last week, but it looks like it's one that's no longer available. I was trying to say that at least one D2D code worked within Steam, but my Titan Quest code did not work, alas

I saw saints row 2 in EB games for 60 bucks still the other day. It wasn't in a greatest hits wrapper though. Regardless I still have about 50% of infamous to go, not a short game if you do all the side quests.

Hey I was in Bestbuy today as I usually am on Wednesdays at least once every other week and I looked up in their game clearance area and saw packaged Saints Row 2, CE for PS3 at 29.99. Couldn't resist it. I was only there for scribblenauts too!!! They then, by the way, had the regular platinum editions also for 29.99. So I guess I got lucky on that one since it's a pretty cool looking box.

Haha, sweet. My guess is, it went to Greatest Hits between when you last saw it and now, because I made my post about it being $30 after checking ebgames.com (which also had the CE for $30 but "Not available Online")

Disappointing update this week; three games on sale. Mount & Blade, World of Goo, and Defense Grid: The Awakening. Hopefully next weeks War games are a good selection.

And it doesn't look like anything was added to "Still Available," so it unless they update later, it looks like the RPGs are gone for good.
