Thanks for the heads up FA! :)

All the X-COM titles for only $5 is almost impossible to pass up, even though I own them all already. ;)

Absolutely fantastic price for the whole X-Com lot! ;)

Gamer's Gate is selling the same for almost three times as much :)

::

I notice, however, that DirectToDrive's version seems to require DosBox while GG's has no mention of needing it... :)

All the games in the X-COM series which were compiled and released to secondary sellers by 2K were identical. So for instance, Gamer's Gate, Steam and Direct2Drive's versions of Enemy Unknown are all the same (at least they should be, I don't know what the aftermarket sellers did to them). EU and TFTD technically don't require DosBox (meaning you don't have to download it - it comes packaged in the download already) either because they should come packaged with the CE executable which is windows-based but more fickle to get running in vista systems. (I made it quite clear to 2K that the user should be the one to decide which version of the game they want to play). :)

Edit: downloaded the X-COM Package from Direct2Download just now. It apparently doesn't come with the CE executable which Steam supposedly has. Bah to Direct2Drive. ;) Technically I shouldn't even have to pay for these games either... but I was never given any more access than the testing versions of the games at Steam. Oh well.

There you are again at the forefront of discovery, as usual. Thanks for the detailed info, Zombie. :)

So it appears each digital outlet arranges file packages at their own discretion. I wonder if 2K plays a role in that as well by electing one among several as a favoured digital download channel...

I'm glad you couldn't resist getting X-Com once more. :)

::

I may eventually buy one such package, Zombie, but I'm holding off until the dust settles and we can tell which is _the_ most complete. ;)

p.s.: which reminds me - do these digital release versions still need your all-in-one patch to be applied on top?

My assumption has always been that Steam was the favored source due to the fact that it was the first place to offer up TFTD... legally. ;)

Can't tell you which is more complete because I don't have them all yet. But if the current Steam download of the series resembles my test version, then Steam is more complete. But for $5 (plus the $0.25 sales tax for me), you can't really go wrong with D2D. :)

Aye, these packages are just the same old buggy version as always. So if you don't like too many bugs in EU I recommend applying my patch. :)

Now it's $5! I've been having a hard time trying to find a cheap physical copy of Armageddon but this will tide me over until I can find one. Downloading now. :)

Last week of the sale folks! Get those titles while they are cheap! The X-COM bundle is still $5 too! :oh:

Is Company of Heroes a good game? That's about the only other one I'd get. ;)

Sale's over. X-COM bundle is back up to $14.95 again. Still a good deal, but the same price as everyone else out there. :)

I only heard that this was a good game from a bunch of people and some gaming magazine articles, but didn't know if their praise was warranted. Anyway, decided on not purchasing any more games which I may never play. I have been finding a lot of X-COM titles on the net lately so I have to keep a little cash on hand to pick them up. Priorities, you know. :)

Sword of the Stars: Ultimate collection for 9,95€!!!

Seriously, that is cheap as dirt and if you don't take the offer, you never will.

Just for the info; SotS:UC has SotS, Born of Blood and A Murder of Crows. Which means that it only lacks Argos Naval Yard that is cheap anyway.

Argos Naval Yard is basically pack with a lot of new toys, so UC has all the functionality SotS has to offer. And yeys, I AM going to double post in SC SotS forum!

A small video promo!

If only I had 3 friends ;)

Erm, actually, if nobody's ordered it yet I only need 2 more people to go for the 4 pack. That said, I bet the price varies soemwhat from UK to US to EU so I'm not sure what price it's showing at in other countries. It's 80.99 in GBP.
