PC Games Sales': Super Collector Edition
« on: February 03, 2018, 02:55:07 am »
Basically building ours PC Steam/GOG/Origin/... PC libraries for Win 1/Win 2/other possible upcoming x86 gaming handhelds (and not only for handhelds, of course) without hurting our wallets too much.

(I've searched both sub-forums of "Windows devices" and I didn't find such thread. In anticipation of upcoming spring arrival of Indiegogo backers' Win 2, I think this may be useful for anyone who want to build up its PC games library.)

I'd like to suggest general rules for this thread:
1. Please post only deals with significant (-50% or more) discount. If there are free giveaway of the game, it's great - post about it here, if game is matching the rule #2.
2. Please consider only good/well-known games, i.e. do not promote dirty cheap/obscure/trash games just because you like the game or want to advertise it for any other reason.
3. Your post should contains game's name, original price/discounted price (or discounted price with exact discount percentage), discount expiration date (if there is known one) and link for the deal. Prices should be in US dollars, use sites such as steamdb.info if your currency in Steam is other than that to get exact values of base and discounted prices. If there is free giveaway, the base price is not necessarily to be listed, but it would be good to tell if there are limited amount of keys for giveaway available. Anything other: short description of the game, FPS values, recommendations for concrete device, setups, videos from Youtube of game running on Win 1/2 etc. - is welcome but optional.
4. Please try to abstain from any messages that don't follow the rules above, i.e., from random talk and flood.

Of course, this is thread about legal ways to obtain PC games cheaply, so no torrents and other illegal sources.

Also, I would like to suggest to post only about the games that are suitable for handheld gaming on the go. I.e., no deals for Starcraft 2 and other RTS. But it's up to poster's opinion.

So, let's try to kickstart it and see if anyone is interested in active posting here? Any suggestions are welcome.

Via Humble Bundle, providing keys for Steam:
https://www.humblebundle.com/games/rockstar-games-bundle

Available until 13th February.

Description:
Rockstar is well known for their TPS open world games with social challenges, mostly based around characters of criminal pursuits or crime fighters. Grand Theft Auto series - a revolutionary open-world action games with elements of adventure, sandbox and simulation about harsh life in the big city. Max Payne is hardcore, classic TPS series about tragic vigilante which credited for inventing famous "bullet time" in games. L.A. Noire is stylish action-detective police drama set in America of 1940s, recently remastered and released on Nintendo Switch as well. Manhunt is brutal, ultra-gory trash action about mass murderer on the loose, banned for violence in Germany, Canada and New Zealand. Bully is the least provocative and violent game of the bundle, where player controls a regular teenager at his school's tenure.

Recommended for:
Most of this bundle's games will run great on both Win 1 & 2 because of their age. The only problematic game is Grand Theft Auto 4, because of poor optimization of its engine - it's kinda playable, but you will have a poor fps inevitably.

GTA 4 on Win 1:

GTA 4 on Win 2:

L.A. Noir and Max Payne 3, as more recent games, also may have some performance issues on Win 1, I guess.

L.A. Noir on Win 2:

Max Payne on Win 1:

King of Fighters 2002 is free on GOG until 2 PM UTC Feb 15.
https://www.gog.com

In fact, it's just genuine arcade roms + emulator with limitations in its settings, but it's a sort of way to legalize one of Neo Geo roms in your possession...

Also, a lot of good deals during The Year of the Dog Sale (15-20 Feb), including extra limited time offers ("flash sales") like Deus Ex 1/2, Stalker, Far Cry, Shadowrun Hong Kong, Rayman Origins and more - each hour a new one.

Dead Space is free on EA Origin
https://www.origin.com/store/free-games/on-the-house

The exact date of this giveaway's end is unspecified. So grab it while you can, if you don't own this great horror TPS already. Note that this version requires both EA Origin client and internet access for it to be played.

Perfectly playable on both Win 1 & 2:

Strategy game inspired by timeless classic, Dungeon Keeper. Unfortunately, there is no video with this game for Win 1/2.
