I've got a question:
I need to spend about $10 more to get the 5$ discount, and I'm thinking about trying out a FarCry game. This would be my first, so I'm wondering which one is the must play.
3-5 and the .5's are all must plays. 1 and 2 can be safely skipped. Start with 3 and maybe tack on Blood dragon which is also awesome. That gives you 3 + 3.5. Should be good for many many hours.
all are good even the first one, fill your ten bucks like 1 + 3 or 2 + 3
Thanks, I'll probably grab 3's Deluxe Edition.
Far Cry 3 is the first one that really got me hooked. I've played through to the end twice, and tried to explore every single square inch of the map. It's a great game.
As others noted, you're probably safe to skip the first two games. I always had the impression- both off its marketing and my time spent playing it- that the first game was intended more as a tech demo than anything else, for the sake of establishing the concepts used in the later games. Also, while advanced in their graphics for their time- enough that they aren't outright ugly to modern conceptions- the first two games still haven't aged all that well, with grainy and blocky graphics and limited colors, muddy textures, and weak lighting.
I don't think the narrative and gameplay are enough to carry them (like, say, with the even less visually appealing Half-Life), but this seems like a good low-spoiler video to help you make up your own mind on the first game.
It's also worth noting that both 3 and 4 have co-op, while the other games in the series do not.
If you're going for flavor, Blood Dragon and Primal are the best options, since their themes are not only distinct among FarCry's usual "jungle mercenary" theme, but among other FPS games as well. Blood Dragon has been both free and bundled, so it may be possible to get a Uplay key for that without too much expense.
Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon and the original game have much better reviews than the other games, with Far Cry 4 and Primal trailing behind, with Far Cry 2 coming in a bit after. Far Cry 5 has the worst reviews of the series.
In summary, Far Cry 3 is probably the best option, gauging off things like review rating, amount of gameplay options, complexity of level design, graphic quality, narrative depth, and the cost-benefit relative to current pricing. Blood Dragon is directly comparable, if co-op isn't a factor for your considerations.
That said, I'm personally itchin' for Primal. It's just too cool of a concept to pass up. ^.^
tl;dr version: 3 should be good. ^.^
Great breakdown, thanks for the suggestions.
Even though alot of people above dislike Far Cry 2, I really enjoyed it. However it isn't for everyone. The game has a minimalist HUD, the weapons are excellent and the resources are scarce. The game is also alot harder than the later games, which have been dumbed down.
Lets take Far Cry 4 for example, you mark an outpost at your map and you just ride to it. In Far Cry 2 you only have a paper map, which you can only look at in real time and you really have to plan out your route, thinking which areas to avoid etc.
The game also doesn't have any real overpowered weapons which is the case in later games in the series (I'm looking at you sniper rifles). The weapons take skill to use.
I've to say that the game doesn't have the best soundtrack or the best story but in my opinion this didn't really matter to me.
At a 60% discount I do recommend far cry 2, but perhaps it would be better to pick it up at a 75%.
But then again this is just my opinion I really enjoyed it and it didn't feel like Far Cry 3,4 & 5 (which feel all the same to me, including primal).
3 was my favorite
Got it along with Witcher 3, I should be in for some fun :D
Thx, bought some games.
Got myself Divinity OS 1, Pillars of Eternity Definitive, Sword of the Stars and Nexus Jupiter incident, it came at a very nice price considering the 100RUB discount that was added to first purchase.
Bought AC Origins Gold, but it's 29.69€ so I had to buy something for cheap to get the 5€ off.....ended up getting Bad Rats Show for 0.39€ xD
it's weird. I took my total to 30 but tax made it 35 so I was back to 30. I took a few items off and made it 25, tax took it back to 30 so the 5 off took at back to 25. so I basically didn't pay the tax.
Devolver Lunar New Year Bundle ($68.15 / 44% off)
Contains: GRIS, Minit, RUINER, SCUM, The Messenger, The Red Strings Club, and The Swords of Ditto
This package uses "COMPLETE YOUR COLLECTION" pricing so if you own any of the games the price will be adjusted. I already own Minit and RUINER and they are charging ($55.57 / 40% off) for the remaining games.
ooh I really wish you hadn't pointed this out. All games on wishlist, well except ruiner which I have
I'm not happy. I wanted to get neverwinter nights EE in winter sale (70% off), but was broke. I got a little bit of money now, but it's only 65% off. (and therefore just beyond my reach!)
Well the gold profile is cool. Thanks Valve for letting me have it for a whole week.
Yay for the whole week and not only for the weekend...
And for the small investment of round about 100€ you can keep it for a whole year!
Not even that. It's only for an extra month.
Wtf.... you're right. I can't help but wonder, if Steam is testing the waters for paid Profile enhancements. Never before was Steam this blatantly asking for money to increase your e-schlong with a fancy profile.
Any longer than a week, and it would go to your head.
You'd become completely unmanageable. :3
Fear Effect Sedna - 90% Lowest Price
Wow that is cheap! :-o
Is it possible to buy $30+ worth of games to get the $5 discount then refund the games you didn't want? :P
i also have same question :D
thats not how its supposed to work
Here is why we can't have nice things.
I don't really think there is a valid way to prevent this from happening except to offer the first $5 in refunds as Steam wallet instead of refunding whatever payment method a person has.
If I were Steam, I'd apply the refund to the coupon first, then refund the payment on any amount above $5.
+1 im not going to test this
It is possible (at least in some countries) to make a generous 'gift' to a 'friend', get thousands of tokens and use them. Then your 'friend' declines the gift and you get your money back. People have been using this bug, and some accounts have already been banned by Steam
Apparently, you get to keep a share of the $5 discount. Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/Steam/comments/an4krq/steam_2019_lunar_new_year_sale_megathread/eg0bfb8
Yeah this happened to me, I ended up buying like three games to break the 30$ threshold to get the 5$ off and well one of the games for some reason didn't work on my system it just kept freezing in like 5-10 seconds (was odd that it was defaulted to like a really low resolution, and couldn't change it, since it would freeze before I had the option) and the only way to exit it was through the task manager.
Anyways the game in question was like over 10$, but when I refunded it I only got like 9 and some change back and after looking at the previous transaction thing it shows that all three games had some of the 5$ taking off - I also noticed that they retroactive took away the coins that I had (I haven't spend any of the coins yet).
I wasn't sure myself how the refund would work if you just refunded one of the games that you bought when taking the 5$ off, but at least now it seem they probably designed it that way so if you wanted to refund you would get your money back, but not more money then what you really paid for - otherwise it could easily be exploited.
yes, that works
If you haven't yet, then please buy the game Legend of Hand! It deserves all your attention! It's a masterpiece in an extremely low price. I just finished it and I'm in awe! I bought the entire Cloak and Dagger Games Collection and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! :D Now, I just need to find something else that good to buy!
It looks interesting, thank you ^^
You are very welcome. I really love their work! They are going to release another game too, probably this year, called Sumatra: Fate of Yandi! I hope they get enough money to keep the games coming!
new highest discount, 83% off
if i spend $30 to get the $5 discount, how many tokens do i get ? Is it enough for another discount ?
You need to spend around $100 to get another discount (ontop of the initial tokens).
vore me papi gabe owo
How many gems are the backgrounds and emoticons worth?
1000 bgs and 100 emoticons
Wow, 1k for bgs? Damn, that's a lot. Sould have spent my tokens on it, not that profile thingy, ugh.
ho sry mistake, my bad, i talk about token, not gem, both cannot be turn into gem
Np. So you can't turn it into gem, well, that sucks.
this time bots are useless for this sale and this ... this is good ;)
and no lag on the store !
Did they change that just recently? I could swear that a few days back it was possible to turn them into gems. lol
Or just a typical case of my general confusedness.
It hasn't been possible since day one to turn them into gems.
Ok, thanks for letting me know, Tzaar. ;)
I really need to increase my sleep times. XD
You and me both, brother. :3
Well, seems like I'm not alone with my problem. But you obviously manage to carry it off better than me, bro. ;)
Hey, i have a question, if i make 1 purchase for my friend as a gift, and then i will make another order for myself, will i still have the progress for the discount?
It has to be all in the same transaction.
Bad for me then :/, thanks for the answer!
You forgot https://store.steampowered.com/app/47810/Dragon_Age_Origins__Ultimate_Edition/
Seeing Dark Souls Remastered at 75% off due to the loyalty discount from owning the old version stacking with the current sale. Not sure if that was intentional but I may have to pull the trigger.
this remaster is just a shame compared to original with tons of mods (like dsfix), we can add that the original disappear from the store .....
thinking of re.....playing it soon, any mods reccomened?
never finished it before.
take a look here : https://www.nexusmods.com/darksouls/mods/
I gave in and bought it. Just for the 60 FPS, it still feels choppy af on a 144hz display tho.
It's intentional btw.
Bought Neverwinter Nights + DLC, Tooth and Tail, Railroad Tycoon 2, Arcanum, and DLC for Tyranny.
Note: total was under $25. I also bought another game which I subsequently refunded, so I could get the discount
Is the sale over? I still have the same game discounts but no tokens and the 5€ voucher is gone, too.
Yeah, it should have ended 52 minutes ago, but like you I also see the discounts still. When you go to a store page, it says the deal ends in .... blank.
I received an e-mail from Steam two days ago which stated the lunar sale is active until Feb. 12, 7PM CET, hence my confusion.
That is really weird. It was originally the 11th. I now see that my on-sale wishlist has greatly decreased.
Yep, game discounts now gone. Alas, there is always a next sale ;)
I forgot to turn my tokens into the badge or emoticons, guessing there's no way to do that now?
soon vanish and gone ^^ but you loose nothing interesting (imho)
I do try and get sale badges etc when I can but yeah not something I'll lose sleep over
The emoticons are nice.
The rewards page is still up; maybe you can still redeem your tokens:
Still worked for me, thx
I was thinking that it made more sense to allow users to redeem tokens for at least a day after the sale, guess I was right.
Thanks for providing the link and info, works fine :)
Good that you say it, with a gift purchase I just got enough coins to get the third background too :D (yay for hoarding)
It would be great if you could gift tokens. I still have about 2.2k tokens and can't use them. :/
Relax, i got 4k tokens and forgot to use it
I also forgot to redeem my tokens, but it's still possible to use them. I just got the badge and all emoticons. Just go to the rewards page posted above.
Not working for me: Unable to retrieve reward items.
Edit: Never mind. I was logged off the moment I landed on the page. Hence the error. Working now.
Thanks still work
I thought i lose it
Because in 14 February i can reedem it in rewards both, I don’t know why still can now even it stated rewards booths only till 13 February
It's not the worst thin in the world. :) But these 2.2k aren't enough to buy anything for it.
Thanx for the link, couldn`t find it myself.
Thanks ! I was sure I lost them but it still works.
