    Not as outrageous as I expected

  • ronin4life

    What is Lost planet Colonies? Is that just 1?

    • malek86

      LP1 + extra content. I’m kinda interested, but if it has GFWL which kinda sucks. I mean, I’m sure it will be removed soon, but still.

      • ronin4life

        I liked LP. I have a now decent Gaming Laptop. I may enjoy LP+ on the(Relative) go.
        …I need to do some thinks…

  • fairysun

    Please be aware.
    Some of the online features still require dying GFWL, which can be a turn off for several pc gamers.

    • EdgeKun

      I was about to second the recommendation for RE5 on PC (Such a fine porting job), but you bring up an excellent point. If GFWL is flat out shut down (ie not continued on as another service or anything) then some of these games may flat out cease to function soon. :C

      • Tyler Beale

        Not till early 2014. Only the Marketplace is currently shut down.

      • pressstart

        They will still work. GFWL online profiles work offline, I’m not sure why people have the notion that it doesn’t work if you’re not connected online. Think Steam offline mode. Your saves will still be valid and games will still work, just without any of the online functionailty, natch.

    • malek86

      I think (hope) that all GFWL support in games will be removed eventually, like in Bioshock 2. The problem is when.

    • Christopher Nunes

      What is GFWL? I’m not familiar with that term.

      • Pyrotek85

        Games For Windows Live

        • Christopher Nunes

          I see… though I don’t think I had anything like that. Hmm, there are some games I’m interested in playing for my PC games.

          • Pyrotek85

            It uses your Windows Live/Xbox Live credentials, it’s a Microsoft thing. Basically it was an extra thing to login to when you’d launch the game, which was redundant if you had bought the game on steam.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I see.

  • I decided to pick up DMC4. I’ve heard it’s a pretty good PC port, and I have 1-3 on PS3. So I should give the series a good whirl.

  • Smooosher than ever

    Outrageous… Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Oni 3 for $5? I was just looking at it the other day and wondering why it was still $20. Nice. I dun have $5, but nice lol.

    • abysswalker

      I do and I’ll buy it. I’ts been on my whishlist for a while, this is the perfect chance.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Nice! I haven’t heard anything of how the PC version compares to the original (haven’t looked is more accurate), so I hope it’s a good port.

        • Juan Andrés Valencia

          It’s not a good port, but if you’ve never played it before then… I guess it’s OK? I’d stick to the PS2 version.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Hm. That’s unfortunate, then. Loved it on PS2.

          • Juan Andrés Valencia

            Remember that the PC versions of Onimusha 3, Resident Evil 4 and DMC 3 are the worst ones out there. This was from a time when Capcom didn’t port their games themselves (Ubisoft did) so we got a version of Devil May Cry 3 that ran at 30-40 FPS on it’s release and on decent gaming PC’s, Resient Evil 4 without any sort of mouse support and worse visuals than the GC version and the most bare-bones PC port you could think of with Onimusha 3.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Ah, yea. I forgot Capcom wasn’t handling their PC ports in-house back then. If only we could see the games re-ported.

        • abysswalker

          Just downloaded it and played till the first boss battle. The controls are kinda weird on pc and I don’t have a controller to test them but it looks nice.

          It’s really bringing back the memories of around 7 years ago, when I played it on a friend’s PS2, so I’m very happy with the purchase.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Oh? So it doesn’t feel like a downgrade from the PS2 version or anything?

          • abysswalker

            Not really, just the controls (the menus even have R1 or X labels… lol) but once you get used to it’s perfect. I’ve yet to play the hardest parts but so far so good.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Okay, cool. I’ll pick it up one of these days, then. Just a pity I won’t be able to catch it during this sale.

            Thanks for the info!

  • Canceris

    Wait, I know that most of those couldn’t be buyed from Tier 2 countries in steam. But I checked back and it turns out now its possible to buy from steam in Tier 2?

    That’s actually kinda nice from Capcom, and also tells me they are embracing Steam. Wonder if those titles on GFWL are going to see a transition whenever GFWL dies.

    Edit: Also, I wouln’t mind a DRM-less copy of single-player games.

    • Tatsuya1221

      Supposedly some are, though i have heard conflicting reports on lost planet colonies edition, some say that capcom are going to patch out GFWL, some say they aren’t since the non colonies version of lost planet is also on steam and uses steamworks only.

  • dahuuuundge

    Go get DMC4, it runs wonderfully on the PC without requiring any secondary launcher like GFWL or Uplay.

    • Canceris

      I heard the PC port was terrible, is it true or I was falsely informed?

      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        The PC port of DMC 4 is FANTASTIC. It’s missing achievement support (Steam or even GFWL) but it does have insanely good visuals, some of the best optimization I’ve ever seen (The game with 16XCSAA, max settings on 1080p was running at 140+ FPS constantly on a GTX 460 and an AMD Phenom II X4 965) and native 360 controller support.

  • Lord Búho

    I wasn’t aware half those games were on steam, I might try Lost Planet, I’ve been meaning to but it’s hard to come by on PS3 these days.

  • pimpalicious

    I hope they do a PS3 sale. I wouldn’t mind picking up RE Revelations on it.

    I didn’t know Onimusha 3 was on Steam. Does anyone know if the PC port is good? It doesn’t look like they’ll be released on PSN.

    • Tatsuya1221

      It’s alright generally i’d say it’s better if your hardware can handle it, which most pc’s should be able to, i’d say the biggest issue is the fact that if i remember it doesn’t have a widescreen option and it’s resolution max if i remember correctly is 1280×1024, otherwise it’s pretty much the ps2 version with a higher resolution, though there may be mods to fix the resolution, if RE4’s pc version is any indication of the capabilities of modding.

      Keep in mind though, the last time i saw it played was on a vista OS machine, so i do not know if win 7 or 8 have issues with it, though i doubt it.

      Also checking the steam forum for the game, it does have some annoyances with a 360 controller due to it coming out before X-input existed, but that also should in theory have a workaround.

      EDIT:to all who read this, READ THE STEAM FORUM FOR THIS GAME.

      This game does have a few issues, but there are ways to fix most of them from what i can tell.

      From what i can gather, on W7, you have to run it in windowed mode for cutscenes to display properly, so that may be a turnoff for some, also you have to rename the prerendered cutscenes folder or the game will crash when they play, you can watch them out of the game but ingame they crash it for some reason, there are supposedly 4 in the game altogether. most are ingame.

      Decide for yourself if this is suitable for your tastes.

  • Ethan_Twain

    Is there no PC version of Resident Evil 4? Surely not, they’ve ported that to everything under the sun. But it’s not on this list! What gives? I definitely want Resident Evil 4 on my computer.

    • Tatsuya1221

      There was, but it wasn’t ported by capcom oddly enough, thus it’s not on steam.

      I think you can only find that in physical copy form, and only europe got it if i remember correctly.

      • pressstart

        It was published by Ubisoft. Anyway, I think DMC3 and Onimusha 3 were ported by the same dudes that did RE4 for PC. RE4 and DMC3 are infamous for being terrible ports. Onimusha 3 may be as well, but I don’t hear much about it. Checking the steam forums though, there are some fan fixes for DMC3.

  • abysswalker

    I see that RE Operation Raccoon City is on the list (on Steam)

    To anyone wondering if they should get it: DONT DO IT. Seriously do yourself a favor and buy another game or save that money. It’s one of the worst games EVER.

    2 months ago I played it because I had an itch for it since the launch trailers it looked kinda interesting as a spin-off, liked the concept so I downloaded it… man it is disgusting to play to say the least: lots of bugs, crappy AI, the list goes on…

    I’m really hoping this comment saves someone the hell I went through with that game.

    • Tatsuya1221

      Even then, doesn’t it have the dreaded GFWL always online requirement?

      Meaning, you’d have a dead game in 6-10 months, when they shut down GFWL for good.

      • abysswalker

        Oh yeah, there’s also that thing. I guess that explains the reason behind this sale. I don’t know how many of them use GFWL but for the ones that do this is the last chance to sell.

  • RichyGaming

    Can’t choose between DmC3 and 4 (New to Devil may cry)

    • Kaihedgie

      If you’re actually concerned about story, then get DMC3

      • RichyGaming

        I like story but I want gameplay to keep me interested, does that make 4 better?

        • Kaihedgie

          That…depends on who you ask. Both games have solid gameplay and more than one character to play as though both play the same missions. DMC4 unfortunately has you literally backtrack all the way to the beginning when you make the switch from Nero to Dante. DMC3 however lets you play as either Dante or Vergil on any mission but the characters are separated into save files. There’s also more to unlock in DMC3, though most of the unlocks are just different costumes. You get a “super costume” in both games but DMC4 will penalize you if you use it.

          Nothing against DMC4 however. Dante has much more freedom with his moves now that he has access to all four styles at once instead of having to stop at a checkpoint to switch and Nero has a fun gameplay mechanic with the Exceed gauge.

    • abysswalker

      Gameplay wise DMC 4 is a lot better. On the other hand DMC3 has Vergil. I’d say go for DMC4

    • Devinja

      DMC3 runs awful on PC. 4 runs pike a dream and has exclusive features. Get 3 for consoles if possible 4 for PC.

      • Namely, just get the HD collection for consoles and get 4 for PC. You’ll spend like $20 tops with this sale. (HD collection is going for $15 on Amazon, currently.)

    • If you’re new to DMC, don’t bother with 3. DMC4 is much more accessible, thanks to Nero and his Devil Bringer. You’ll find it easier to learn the game’s combo system. DMC3 is rather unforgiving in that regard.

  • I wouldn’t call it outrageous. I’d say they’re mediocre. 24.99 for the new DMC is still too much.

  • Zeonsilt

    I don’t recommend you Resident Evil 5 – it’s G4WL.
    I recommend RE6 instead,a much better game,than RE5.(also Steam service,not a G4WL)

    • Tatsuya1221

      I would disagree about RE6 being better than RE5 but, i do agree about holding off on buying RE5, as currently they haven’t mentioned anything about getting rid of GFWL in it.

  • Brion Valkerion

    Oooo might have to grab DMC3 and Oni 3, wonder if the steam versions are “enhanced” or at least better than the shotty ports I “acquired” a few years ago.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Lost Planet 2 for 5 bucks is a great deal. The game’s co-op mode is amazing.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Dark Void Zero is also available for a buck and some change.

  • Göran Isacson

    Man, I already own all those games save for Resi6 and TxSF… and those are unfortunately too expensive for my wallet right now. Oh well, that happens.

  • Nitraion

    Oni3 and DMC4 = capcom glory days :)
    wut?! oni 3 on steam?! there is PC version? i just know O_o

  • Don’t know about you guys but I am not outraged :)

  • Nicky Tetlow

    Very disapointed the headline wasn’t “Capcom Steam Sale Has Older Games On Sale At CUH-RAAAZY Discounts”
