Alpha Protocol is 90% off through September 27th. That's stupid cheap, but I don't know if I'll ever play it. I find myself wrestling with this a lot with Steam. I have no interest in just collecting games that I'll never play, but the dollar amount is so low that it kind of doesn't matter. Anyone else face this?

If it weren't for my continued disgruntlement toward Valve (and thus Steam) over the lack of Half-Life related releases in the last few years, I would say that this is a great deal that people should take advantage of.

But for the moment, all I can go is shake my fist and curse Valve. CURSES!

Really solid steal. I bought it.

I was just about to post this, but you beat me to it ^^
Anyone who doesn't have the game yet should totally go for it!

wow, that's a steal imo.   I enjoyed the game alot at full price.   Bit janky but definitely a diamond in the rough.

Yo get that shit.

Damn that's cheap! I spent 5 on it this summer and got my money's worth while still in the middle eastern hub. The only reason I stopped playing it was because Dead Island came out and took all my time.

Even if you're not even almost interested, it's two fucking dollars. For far less than a meal you can get a game that was once being sold at retail for $60.

damn everyone should get on that. had so much fun with AP - possibly the best game to play through as a dickhead

#11 Posted by DystopiaX (5313 posts) -

This is great! Game has its flaws but it's totally worth 2 dollars

#12 Edited by countinhallways (632 posts) -

I will add yet another voice to the masses of those saying that this is a great deal.

You, yes, you, should purchase it.

#13 Posted by adoggz (2069 posts) -

sweet, just grabbed it in case i ever wanna play it again.

#14 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2722 posts) -

For the love of god, buy it.

#15 Edited by wolf_blitzer85 (5259 posts) -

Ooh also since we're on the topic of awesome two dollar games, Company of Heroes is only two bucks as well.

Get that too and be happy that you got two awesome games for only four bucks.

#16 Posted by Animasta (14697 posts) -

one of the best games of 2010

#17 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

#18 Posted by Venatio (4491 posts) -

#19 Posted by Malphye (413 posts) -

2 bucks huh, might pick it up even though I already have it on 360. I'm so weak...

#20 Edited by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

#22 Posted by Chris2KLee (2336 posts) -

For $2 I say go for it. Set it to Easy and enjoy the ride.

#23 Posted by Ghostiet (5284 posts) -

That's about the prize for an alpha version.

#24 Posted by wealllikepie (757 posts) -

EVERYONE DO IT FOR RORIE!!!!! :D

#25 Posted by Jimbo (9819 posts) -

Great game, well worth playing. The Total War pack is a good deal too if you have a few hundred hours to kill.

#26 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5145 posts) -

That's a fucking great deal.

#27 Posted by Nictel (2416 posts) -

Sega Collector Pack seems great too, that is if you want most of the games.

In my opinion, If your referring to Human Revolution. Then Deus Ex wins by a landslide.

Stop making me spend money!!

Wow, that's pretty amazing.

#33 Posted by DarkGamerOO7 (574 posts) -

I just purchased Alpha Protocol for $2 and Aliens vs Predator for $5. I've been wanting these games for a while but because I've heard mixed reactions about them I never got around to purchasing them, but damn for $2 and $5? I've been hurt worse by purchases and I'm sure I will find some enjoyment out of these games. Downloading them though is going to be a pain in the ass though. :[

Its similar to HR, though not as good. The first mission kinda dragged, but it got much better as it went. Some of the skills you get make no sense (like invisibility).

#35 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Two dollars?? It's like I'm LOSING money if I don't buy it!

#36 Posted by Sloktor (54 posts) -

@Ravenlight: My thoughts exactly.

Can always use another game for installing and not getting time to play

#37 Posted by RIDEBIRD (1233 posts) -

Really surprised to see the love in this thread. I found it to be a broken piece of shit with good conversations. Everything else is pretty awful. But yeah, it's worth it for 2 bucks.

#38 Posted by SPACETURTLE (1622 posts) -

I dont know. I tried it once but didnt like it. 2 bucks is retarded cheap thou. Damn you Steam!

#39 Posted by TekZero (2673 posts) -

I've been waiting to get a computer so I could buy/play this game. At $2, it's a must buy. Now I just need to find a way to get $2.

there can be value after the steam sale, so you can trade the game with steam's trading system.  So potentially you can be losing money on a future deal!

Well done sir, this just made me chuckle.

#42 Posted by Fyrecroe (29 posts) -

This thread has reminded me that I already own that game on Steam. Too bad, $2 is a steal....

#43 Posted by chilibean_3 (1644 posts) -

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...

I'm having the same issue as you on this one, OP. The chance of me ever getting around to play it isn't likely. BUT TWO BUCKS!

#44 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3103 posts) -

Joining the chorus of voices saying to get the game. It's pretty good, you guys.

#45 Posted by Landon (4147 posts) -

Still aint worth it.

#46 Posted by Legend (2659 posts) -

I bought it. I fucking love Steam!

#47 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

Thanks for posting this, just bought it.

#48 Posted by Anubis_Dragoon (24 posts) -

I remember when this was first announced, I was super excited for it, but after the reviews, I never wanted to throw down $50-$60 for it, but $2? Fuck yes.

A few hundred? A few hundred per game.

Dude, don't let that much hate into your life, just accept that Episode 3 and Half Life 3 never existed and are never coming out.
