Steam Summer Sale Daily Deal: July 18th, 2012

By litepink, 4 years ago
As promised, we’re keeping you up to date on the Steam Summer Sale. Today Steam has DLC for a Games for Windows LIVE title discounted at 75% off for the next day or so.

http://www.trueachievements.com/AoE-Online-xbox-360.htm “Summer Sale Bundle” – $9.99/£6.99 $2.49/£1.74
- The Pen of Herodotus: The premiere historian of the ancient world owns a bunch of Cows, Sheep, and Goats—9, to be specific—and for some reason he's unable to keep them in their pen. So they wander around your Capital City, visiting your buildings, eating, and conversing with your citizens. Yes, conversing. Or at least the citizens talk to them; who knows if they talk back. Available only with this offer.
- Storage: The 24-item 'Grand Warehouse' gives you more space to store your gear, materials, and loot. And possibly other things.
- Exotic Vanity Gear: Impress your friends and confuse your enemies. Receive 9 pieces of gear in total, including 3 Vanity Helms, 3 Vanity Shields, and 3 Vanity Weapons of the Tiki, Samurai, and Prehistoric varieties.
- Consumables: 5 'Heroic Aid' Empire Consumables. For those times when everything on the map needs to die. Not available for purchase within the game.
These daily deals overlap just a bit, so there’s still time to take advantage of yesterday’s offer on http://www.trueachievements.com/Grand-Theft-Auto-IV--PC....htm and its DLC. We’ll bring you more info if more GFWL daily deals arrive between now and the end of the sale on July 22nd.

I wanna thank this great website and the great litepink for telling us about these great deals. I just picked up a new copy of NFS the run last night at best buy for $5. Also got thor for $10.
I have 10 xboxes. Before you ask for help just keep in mind I have been used way too much already. R

Does this DLC pack have anything to do with achievements?

Tandar1 said:Does this DLC pack have anything to do with achievements?This is what I'm trying to find out too. I saw the deal, but if you start talking about achievements on a PC deal they will tear you to shreds at CAG. Big thanks for litepink posting this here so us 360 gamers can discuss this!

Also, I had a great member on CAG from the UK help me get the GTA Collection for $9! I think they can buy it and it comes out to somewhere around $7.50 for them, so they make a little money and us US gamers can save $3.50 and have EVERY GTA GAME from part 1!

All together, I think I spent around $30 - $40 but picked up about 20 games and somewhere in the Steam Community I saw my games total up to about $250! Might be jumping on the PC bandwagon if deals like this are normal (I see a lot of people upset with these deals while I'm very much enjoying them).

I don't think these items are achv-related. I purchased the "all-in-one" pack a few months ago that had EVERYTHING, and still haven't started, but from what I looked at the majority of the achvs are tied to the RACE DLC...this stuff looks like background extras.

EDIT...I guess the "premium gear" could get you the achv for equipping a piece of gear!
Killer Punks...all that needs to be said.

Thanks for the help everyone!

Next question: I only see this pack and the actual game to download. Are the DLC packs not on Steam? Was hoping to find everything else on sale. If its only on Marketplace, then I might avoid this game since it will probably never be on sale and it looks to have quite a few packs.

There is like nothing in the pack, even for $2.50. I can't believe that was 10$ at some point. No thanks, definitely been some crazy drops in these deals though, dont have much of a gaming PC atm tho. My best friend has been enjoying these deals tho lol

no they removed it form both GFWL and Steam Marketplace
you need to buy Empire Points or gather them trough playing and then buy the packs in game.

Beat me to it, but as he said, the game is now entirely run by Empire Points. If you play enough, you could possibly get the entire game for free (But you will have to love it to do this, as it will require 100's of hours!). Otherwise, you need to buy Empire points and then use them to buy Civs, DLC etc. Much like MSP.

The Pen of Herodotus sounds interesting. I took a bunch of the old buildings and made ghettos. Put all my Argos Cows around them. That'd be nice to mix it up.

Plus, the Heroic Aid is always useful.
