If you still haven't played this awesome game yet now you have no excuse, it's on sale for just $2 on Steam. An amazing deal, I'm thinking about buying it even though I already own it for Xbox. Just thought I'd pass this along incase any of you guys are interested.

It's a great game. I got it when it originally released.

I don't have a PC but I might buy for when I do. ;__;

Ugh, how can you say no to that? i already have a digital copy bought from XBL, but I've had to delete it until i can get a bigger harddrive....  
 
It's just 2 bucks...

Geez, that's tempting, but I picked up Beyond Good & Evil for five bucks instead. Personally, I just think it's the better rounded game when it comes down to the actual plot and gameplay. Or simply buy both, they are cheap enough. Makes me a little sad I sold my XBox two years ago.

Bought it. Hope I like it. 
 
Seriously, I bought a game without knowing whether I'll like it or not. Only Steam could do such a thing.

#7 Posted by Radar (884 posts) -

Yes please!
 
Is there any issues with the PC version?

#8 Posted by WitchHunter_Z (882 posts) -

Guh... I so wish I had a way to buy things on steam, it's only £1 for my British account.

#9 Posted by TMThomsen (2068 posts) -

Uh, grabbin' it! Have no idea what the game is about, but I've heard it's good :P

#10 Posted by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

I bought this and know nothing about it.

#11 Posted by cspiffo (860 posts) -

Played it when it was free on Gametap.  Still, this deal is too good to pass up.  Sold!

#12 Posted by Evilsbane (4328 posts) -

Anyone who hasn't played Psychonauts and gets this is in for a real surprise, its my favorite Tim game period it deserved to sell so much better.

This. I just bought it before I even read the thread. Saw the title on the front page, bought the game, then came back to the thread.
 
 
 
Seriously, guys. $2 might as well be free. I can't even eat lunch for that.

Yes I bought it and saw this.

I tried to play that game, and it has such high praise that I thought - surely, I will enjoy this. But each time I tried to play through that game, I lost interest really quick. I don't get why people think its so good. The farthest I got is where you meet the crazy doctor dude or whatever underground (the one you ride the mining cart to) and it never really took off for me.

#16 Posted by Snail (8467 posts) -
@ajamafalous: Hold on a sec, I bought it because it's Psychonauts. It's a classic that one must play, that much I know.
#17 Posted by Fallen189 (4911 posts) -

Enjoy the meat circus.

#18 Edited by ajamafalous (11591 posts) -
@Snail: Well, yeah, but that's the extent of what I know. I know it's highly praised, and you can't go wrong for $2.

the TRUTH has been uttered, ladies and gentlemen. two dollars for psychonauts is a hell of a deal, and in no way should it be passed up.
#20 Edited by PenguinDust (12414 posts) -

Yeah, I caved too.  $2 is the price of a Big Mac and this will stay with me longer than one of those.  Even if I only play it a couple of hours that's cheaper than even matinee movie prices.   Besides, if I have it in my games list, the likelihood that I will play it is better than my picking it up used somewhere else.

#21 Posted by DirrtyNinja (715 posts) -
Selling this game at $2 is disgusting. Deserves more than that.
#22 Posted by MrKlorox (11185 posts) -

Buy it. One of the best Steam deals ever.

#23 Posted by nukesniper (1311 posts) -

Bought. Thanks for the heads up GB community! Otherwise I would have spent that 2 bucks on something far less worthy. =)

#24 Posted by AlexB (1023 posts) -

Just bought it because of this thread. Complete impulse lol. Never got around to playing it, now that its only 2$ how can I not. That's like an entire game for the same price as a single DLC song in Rock Band lol.

#25 Posted by NoDeath (797 posts) -

I just bought it. I've been feeling guilty about not owning this game for years. Steam sure knows how to exploit it.

#26 Posted by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

I had Psychonauts for the original X-Box. 
But then i sold the system, including all the games. 
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience it once more. 
(In the process of ordering it)
#27 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

Best deal ever.

Yeah, they need to put Beyond Good & Evil on sale for $2 next.  Too bad, they can't offer us Ico.  And, I thought only mothers knew how to exploit our guilt.  Steam has learned a few things I guess. 
#29 Posted by iam3green (14388 posts) -

ill look into seeing how this game is.

Dude, it's already $5. Or you can try to buy that cheese that included game.
#31 Posted by Nikral (288 posts) -

I've been on the fence about this game, and as soon as I saw this post I jumped to steam and bought it.  I didn't even open the thread until after I started installing it, lol.  Thanks for the tip man!

Beyond Good & Evil is another one I have been on the fence on...
#34 Posted by hoseph1337 (27 posts) -

As far as I know, it's free on Gametap, where I first played it.

#35 Posted by AndrewB (7189 posts) -

Games at a bottle of soda price...
 
I jumped on this the second I saw it. It'll probably be some time still before I have the chance to play it, though.

#36 Posted by wosifat (187 posts) -

Highly doubt my computer will run it, but it two dollars!  What's Steam's Policy on downloading a game you already bought?  As in, if you buy it on Xbox Live, you can download it however many times you need, but if it's not on the system you first downloaded it to, you need to be logged in to play it.

#37 Posted by MetalGearSunny (6984 posts) -

Great deal.

This, exactly.
#39 Posted by SalazarCruz19 (87 posts) -

I'm gonna buy it... i finished  Psychonauts on the xbox about 3 months ago and loved it... for two bucks this game is a steal...One of the best games i have played in a long while...

#40 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5235 posts) -

Get it if you have never played this game before. Probably one of the best presented games as the game play can be a little janky at times, but everything else that makes up the game is amazing and I could not stop playing till it was beaten. Plus 2 DOLLARS!!!!!

#41 Posted by Griddler (3344 posts) -

Or £1 for UK'ers. This is just an awesome deal, I've been meaning to get it for ages and this just pushed me over the age.

#42 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (1854 posts) -

Never played it, but I'm fiending some platforming/adventure play.

#44 Edited by WinterSnowblind (7612 posts) -

I felt that this, along with Beyond Good & Evil were extrodinarily overrated.  They're good games, but because of their poor sales, many people have hyped them to Godly status.  If they had sold well back when they were released..  they definitely wouldn't be recieving so much attention.
 
But again, good games, definitely worth checking out and impossible to pass up for £1.

#45 Posted by mrsmiley (967 posts) -

Psychonauts was such a good game, it almost makes me sad to see it for $2. But at least now others can enjoy it. :)

#46 Posted by MauveForest (588 posts) -

I already owned it on cd, but two dollars is worth the hassle of not running off the cd. Man I am getting lazy:P

#47 Posted by Tarakun (225 posts) -

I already have the retail version... 
 
Considering re-buying the Steam version just to have a digital copy.

#48 Posted by Kombat (2205 posts) -

If you don't buy this at this price, you're a bad person.

#49 Posted by Dalai (6876 posts) -

And here I thought I was going to avoid buying games on Steam for the rest of the winter. 
 
Meh, it's $2... a fucking steal.

#50 Posted by AdMordem (451 posts) -
@WitchHunter_Z: umm paypal? Or if you get off the internet once in a while, you find out that VISA now does a gift card. Works just like a credit card, put its prepaid. You just pop down to your bank/post office/choice of vendor, and grab yourself one of those badboys.
 
But I mean you already know this right? Like you could have easily googled a multitude of things to find this out, and instead you were here... giving a lame excuse for not buying Psychonauts. For shame.
 
@iam3green: For 2 bucks mate, your talking less financial risk than trying a new brand of soda. Take a risk.
