I've been telling some of you guys to do this for a while, i still think you should

Here's a good detailed thread about it

http://www.reddit.com/r/SteamGameSwa...let_for_cheap/

EDIT : I would personally not recommend that you sell the keys on the Market, keys in itself are valued at around 2$ each and you can trade keys directly for games

I got The Cave Pre-Order and Brutal Legend Pre-Order (both 15$ games) for 6 keys each, i sold the 3 TF2 The Cave items for 5$ on the Market and the 2 TF2 Brutal Legend items for 6 keys, yes the price i had paid for it making it free

You can get Bioshock Infinite for 25-26 keys making it around 32-35$ depending on how much you paid per key

Read the comments for the not so lollipop and rainbows side of the coin that could maybe happen if you're not careful enough though

Chivalry is awesome. Been playing it for months now and I have yet to tire of its deep combat engine and incredibly visceral game play. Not everybody will like it, but everybody should at least try it.

$17.99 seems kind of expensive for the very minor improvement. I'm sure that it'll be down to $9.99 pretty quickly, though.

I'm happy because I was going to revisit AoE II in the next year or so, anyways. Now, I can just play the HD version, instead.





I hope that this is successful and that they do the original AoE next. AoE II is a classic, but the original is even more of a classic, and it would be odd and disappointing to have an HD version of the second and not the first.

Loved AOEII, too bad single player, even on the hardest level it is far to easy. Unless there is some good competition it is not much.

Not to brag --- ok Ill brag I was near the top while "The Zone" was running.

I'll probably still buy it full price. The guys who are doing the HD remake know how to make good games.

Hell yes. There is no point if it's a company like EA or Valve because it's literally just a disk but a company like CD Projekt (The Witcher II)? Epic packaging.

The meme is for kids born in the 90s that don't know the plight of the older generations.

Lots of them. Mostly to do with VCRs and **** like that.

I actually bought a couple physical copies of PC games.

I bought a physical copy of Prey on eBay when I heard the keys activate on Steam and it seems to be the only way to get a digital copy.

Also remembered buying a couple PC games a couple years ago at a local thrift store for $1 a piece. They were Mirror's Edge, Company of Heroes, Mercenaries 2, and some racing game. I never played Mercenaries 2 or the racing game.

If it's worth buying I take the physical copy every time. The publishers just made them not worth buying. Last one I bought was Borderlands 1 gold with all the DLC for $9.99. It didn't hit that low digitally for another year.


Though I did just buy a sweet big box copy of Icewind Dale 1 and 2, but its used.
