    Don't forget to use browser add ons like Enhanced Steam.
    Enhanced Steam will show you the current price of the game at a couple other websites, historical low, highlights games you own and are on your wishlist, how many times it's been in a bundle, etc. It's available on Chrome, Opera, and Firefox.

    If you don't want an add on, there's also the IsThereAnyDeal.com website that will allow you to search for the best deal on a game. You can also set up an email alert to when a game hits the price you want.
    https://isthereanydeal.com/








    It seems the other thread was lost in the shuffle so I figured I'd start a new one.

    Paypal leaked the date of Steams winter sale. It's starting on Dec 22nd and rumors are the controller and link will be offered at a discount.

    This year's Square Enix Mystery Bundle had:

    Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
    Thief
    Final Fantasy XIII
    Life is Strange Episode 1
    Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

    For 10 bucks. I already own XIII for Playstation but don't own one (had a roommate at the time who did). Will probably install XIII and ARR and gift the others.

    Nice. I didn't even know they offered a bundle like that. If you want to sell the FF mmo I'll give $10 for it or I got some stuff to trade http://www.steamgifts.com/trade/cmZ...toverswgigantic-armyvaldis-story-abyssal-city.

    If the Link is at a decent discount I might pick it up. It'd be nice to play some of my games on a bigger screen.

    I got 110 euros in my steam wallet. Just bought Fallout 4, Metal Gear Solid 5 and Batman Arkham Knight from G2Play recently, so those are off from my wishlist..

    But anyways, going to look for these.

    Trails in the Sky SC
    Stranded Deep
    Amazing Frog
    Action Henk
    Sleeping Dogs Definite Edition
    80 days
    Undertale
    Fran Bow
    Sunless Sea
    Soma
    Layers of Fear


    This bundle sucked donkey's salty balls. Life is Strange only was for one episode. Already had Final Fantasy XIII. Thief wasn't even the master edition which it has been before in this bundle! My God...

    Here, i'll say it. I'll give them all for free. I gave Thief for my friend, but all the others are for yours to take. Anyone who wants any of them, just quote me and ask for the game(s) that you want and I will give you a PM.

    I have a Link and don't think it's amazing but it's ok. I play Fallout 4 on it sometimes (only game I've tried) and my Link is directly connected to my router but my PC is wirelessly connected. I'm not sure if they both need to be wired to make the stream perfect but with my setup the stream suffers from some quality issues at times and some FPS drops. I am leaning towards it being my own problem since my PC is not wired to the router but I was hoping that the Link being wired would have been good enough

    For future reference, I just got up on steamgifts.com. You can give away games and enter entries to win games. There are lots of open giveaways, but some are restricted to certain levels - you raise your level by giving away games.

    So it's good for trading individual games in bundles, gifts, etc, so you can unload what you don't want and potentially win stuff you do want.

    We should actually set up a Sherdog gift group on there, so we can have giveaways only we can access. Ideally the group would be large enough that we'd have decent participation rates.

    Any chance maybe any Mods we have on here who are up on Steam can help coordinate the group ? Guess we'd want to gauge interest first, although it wouldn't really hurt just to gave the group even if only a handful of people join

    Streaming is only as good as the weakest link. In your case, the PC being wifi is holding it back.

    Yeah, I figured. It sucks though because the download/upload speed while my PC is on the 5ghz network (it always is) is as fast as when I drag it out and wire it to the router. So the speeds seemingly are good wireless, but I guess it'll just never be as good as wired. And I don't feel like buying a long ass ethernet cord from my living room to my bedroom.

    I know steamgifts because I have been registered for couple of years or so there, I have given around 12 games I think. Nothing very expensive though, but I usually give the ones that I dont need

    I like to give them to forums sometimes though, thats why I wanted to share some here. I also have given some in UG forum and BB forums (actually just very recently). So I like to give games on different places from time to time

    Word, we should recruit a Mod to help us organize a Sherdog steamgifts group !
