Today seems like a good day to talk about upcoming games, pre order prices and some deals on some past games of yonder.
First up is Half life 2 – episode 2 on sale on steam, head on over to http://store.steampowered.com/ and sign up or log in to view prices in GBP, currency is US Dollars by default, atleast for me, maybe it’s an isp proxy thing i don’t know. anyway, said game is a beautiful 75% off until thursday 4pm pacific time. Though as it’s NOT currently letting me go through with the transaction saying there is an error, i cannot vouch for it actually happening, the deal must be soo good its screwing with their servers. I joke, there’s loads of big games making their way for pre orders, including portal 2, with a pre order price of £26.99 at 10% off, and with a free copy of portal, the first one, which if you have it already, and you really should, then you can give it to a friend. This is a great deal considereing amazon have this pc/mac pre order price for 1p shy of £30 bones, and an rrp of £35.
With the previous news that the PS3 version of portal 2 will gain you a free steam version, i think i may hold out for this one. And ofcourse the XBOX 360 version as that’s where my achievemo’s are at. Word.
Currently Amazon.co.uk have portal 2 at 39.99 for ps3 and xbox 360.
On the SEGA front though, £22.99 upfront now will get you 4 games in 1 disc with the dreamcast collection due out on friday the 25th of February. Had i not already purchased 2 of the games on xbox live i would say this is a good deal, especially as Space channel five was a really good game for what it was. Sonic adventure was a huge game, a little buggy and shoddy voice acting but still great none the less. sega bass fishing well, its good but no Crazy taxi. I mean the latter has a song especially about it by Aminal. check out http://www.aminal-theband.com for more on that little beaut.
