  • Gamers Gate is having a weekend sale on the Deus Ex Franchise, of which Deus Ex: Human Revolution will redeem on Steam, and the cheapest I've seen it.

    Deus Ex Collection $17.49 (all three DE games, plus all DLC for DE:HR)
    DE: HR $7.49
    DE: HR Augmented Edition $9.99
    DE: HR Missing Link DLC $3.75
    other DLC $0.50 - $1.00

    The other Deus Ex games are on sale as well, but they won't redeem on Steam.

    Buy now.
    Ignore the tactical pack as it is only a few useless weapons. Explosive missions pack maybe as it does contain a new mission. Missing Link is more of the game, so buy.

    First up is another Daily Deal, of sorts. Football Manager 2012, which is 60% off for yourself OR 75% off if you buy it as a gift for someone else and you already own the game.

    Confusing, right? Well, the 66% off bit I can give prices for - £7.99 / $11.99. Can't tell you the 75% off Giftable price, since I don't actually own it (and nor do I want it, I hate football), but take another buck or two off the price and you won't be that far off.
    Just in case anyone actually wants to know the price with 75% off is £4.99 (obviously don't know US price but would guess it's around $7.49).
  • Borderlands is probably worth picking up if you like FPS games, though it's a bit on the repetitive side. And the DLC is basically free since the GOTY edition is the same price as the normal game.
  • Borderlands is probably one of my favorite games of the past five years. Definitely my favorite of those I've played in 2009 and a high-ranking game on my top so-and-so games ever. So yes. Buy it. A truly fantastic game, with a roughly 50 hour total playthrough time with all the DLCs included. Well worth the investment.
  • I played about an hour or two of Borderlands when I first got it and I do intend to go back to it eventually, after I've finished all these hundred hour RPGs that I've got all stacked up all over the place.

    Today's Deal is the Borderlands series. - 75% off
    F U, Steam!

    I bought this at full price a few weeks back with a 10% off coupon I got from my brother, really sucks when that happens. :P
  • Dude, Borderlands is always going on sale.

    Wait, wasn't one of those coupons from the X-Mas Sale, was it?
  • I find it amusing (and eye-rolling, tbh) that the actual Steam sale says 75% off the Borderlands franchise, when all this really applies to is 2 versions of one game (standard and GOTY), their respective 4-pack bundles, and all applicable DLC.

    That's it. It's one game, not a franchise.

    Steam's standard wording for "This sale applies to more than one item" has been "franchise" for awhile now.
