june 16 steam DOTD... should I?

#1 Posted by RawknRo11a (508 posts) -

well, this is the Steam Deal of the Day.

Normal price:$29.99

75% off: $7.49

so should I pick this up? I do enjoy racing games but I'd miss out on the 360 achievements but then I'd be paying the full price...

What? Yes. Yes!

I just finished the game a couple of weeks ago, and it is really fantastic, the story is totally worth seeing and the game itself is fun enough on it's own right, DO IT!

Not in the UK it seems. Damn.

Edit: Wait, yes it is. For some reason it was still showing Worms.

I have a bad feeling that it'll be cheaper, or at the very least as cheap when the summer sale rolls around. Argh, decisions!

at $7.50, how could you go wrong? Any money you spend less at this point is just less money towards the Dev

That'd be fine and all if I wasn't a little tight on cash right now. All the money that can be saved will be saved!

Oh. I already own a copy on PS3 (which I haven't played yet). I'm always up for buying multiple copies of games that try something interesting though.

@Cloudenvy: Very, very true!

I have to admit, UPlay was hardly annoying when I played Brotherhood. Granted, I did buy that game retail, so I have no idea how much more of an annoyance it would have been with Steam added on top of it. As far as this game's DRM is concerned, if what's on the store page is to be believed, then it seems it only needs online connectivity upon initial activation, which is fine by me.

I'm kind of in the same boat, even though it's just a $2.5 difference. It's not even that, it's just the fact that I probably wouldn't even have touched it by the time it does go on sale for $5, thus making it pointless to buy now at all... Ugh. What to do, what to do?

Fuck you guys. Steam takes enough of my money as it is.

#21 Posted by Phatmac (5686 posts) -

Just beat it recently and I highly recommend it! I don't know about Uplay though, I couldn't play From Dust on PC for some reason so watch out for that! I say go for it!

Check to see if it has Ubi's horrible DRM on it, if it does stay away... if not, that is a good deal... i doubt it will drop lower in the summer sales in a week or two.

Enough? I think it's too much for most of us, broke or not.
