HFBoards 4-Packs group buy thread

Why don't we have one of those?

Are you against saving money?

So here's the gist, list a game that you're interested in, if they offer a 3 or 4 pack and if you get enough people together you can send the cost of the pack divided by 4 to the person buying it on Paypal, once it's done the person buys it on Steam and gift each person in the deal their copy

Of course, you can always refuse access to the deal to anyone you might not trust but i think we know most people posting around here enough for it to work like it does in other communities

So let's start this right, i'm willing to buy a 4-pack for Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed and i need 3 warm bodies for 10$ a pop, i've seen a high number of people praising the game saying it was much better than the last few Mario Kart so i'm willing to give it a shot, i'll probably still end up buying it at 15$ but i wouldn't mind knocking the price down a bit

Deal's up till tomorrow 12:59pm EST

Sonic Racing Transformed is awesome. I'm not sure it's better than Mario Kart, but it's easily the next best option. Fan-****ing-tastic.

Question: I'm new to Steam. It's showing the Sonic Racing Transformed 4-pack as $80 USD. The Sonic Hits Collection that includes the prequel (Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing) is $40 for the 4-pack. Do I have that right, or are you scoring some huge members-only deal?

Here's a question: Do you have to be online to play Steam games? If I wanted to buy, say, Unreal Tournament and play it where I don't have an Internet connection, would I be okay? I've Googled it but haven't found a concrete answer.

Is Unreal Tournament an online only game? I've only played 1 Unreal Tournament game, it was for PS3, and it was only online multiplayer.

But if you want to play a single player game offline, just follows these quick steps while online;

* start up steam.
* click "steam" in the top-left corner.
* the second option down says "go offline..." click that.
* voila.

I usually put my Steam to offline before I log-off so that if I go anywhere without a connection, I can play. You might be able to put it to offline mode while already being offline, but I've never tried it.

The original UT (1998 I think) had a killer offline ladder, and that's what I want to revisit. Thanks for the tip, that's exactly what I needed to know!
