Great price for what's meant to be a great game. Been thinking of buying this myself for a while, now I'll definitely have to.

I have this on my Wii - a great indie game. Looks nice, can be pretty challenging and it's addictive!

A good deal - posted it myself a minute after you I think.

I have this game on the Wii too and I am not sure if I want to get it for the PC - guess I have a couple of days to make the decision....

That's the problem with these weekend deals, they make you buy things that you probably won't get around to playing but can't resist buying because they are so cheap. I still haven't even installed Mount and Blade (bought on recommendation) or X-COM.

this is a top top top game - witty, challenging and unique. At this price it would be daft not to buy it...and so I did!

Had it as a demo for a week and had a 'feeling' that it would be on offer soon.

Did the same with Left 4 Dead when it was on offer a couple of weeks ago.

Heated and repped.

Which is better to get, the wii or the pc version?
#6
I don't buy stuff on Steam anymore unless it's a weekend deal. :D

Kinda shooting themselves in the foot, but I'm sure it brings in the sales.
#7
personally I would say the pc version as it's easier to pick up the goo using a mouse... I know, that probably won't make sense until you play the game. Other than that, I doubt it will make much difference as the game only seems to have one resolution - it's the kind of game where resolution makes no difference at all though.

I would assume that the wii version is a lot lot more expensive than the PC version too - certainly this weekend!
#8
Wow, that's an outstanding price for an oustanding game! I paid £11 in the Steam New Year sale and it was a bargain then. Metacritic score of 91%: http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/pc/worldofgoo

To be honest Steam has sold me on digital downloads through these weekend sales. I still won't buy things when it's more expensive than buying a physical copy but if prices are comparable I'll at least consider it now wheras in the past I'd have always gone for the physical copy even if it was the more expensive option.

I really don't understand the logic of buying something like Dawn of War 2 though which is £35 on steam and £23 on play.
#10
Great game though can get very frustrating laer on!
#11
absolutely great game, played it when it first came out (torrent download, woops) well worth the coppers what theyre asking.
made by a indie type of company not one of the big boys but you wouldnt think so, very clever!
#12
I'd probably buy it if it weren't for the fact I've spent the last day trying to "install" Empire Total War through Steam from my DVD. It's like Half Life 2 all over again...

Well the Wii version has a co-op mode, which was the main reason I decided on that - plus the price is 1500 Wii points (which if you get a good deal on the Wii points card is something like £7.50, though with RRP for those cards it would be around £11) which was cheaper than any PC version of the game at the time.
#14
I love steam!

First UT3 Black edition for 8.39, now this! It's so hard to resist!

I'm was not convinced on digital downloads, but totally sold at these prices. Thought I would miss having an actual game, but when you can just reinstall games on any pc without the disc, I can take that hit.

Still like CD's and DVD's though.

You can change the resolution if you edit the config file - read the help file.
The linux version has a (unsupported) mode which lets you use up to 4 mice at once (like the wii) :)

downloaded this a couple of hours ago, already had my 4 quid's worth.

Great game, better than Lemmings!

Just bought it and have been playing it for the last 45mins. Addictive, well made game!

Good deal! H & R added!!
#18
ive got it on the wii and on the pc. Its awesome! Go and buy it. Was going to post this deal on here myself, but forgot! You will love it! ( I think wiimote is easier to use than the mouse, or maybe just more fun,)
#19
There's a free demo available from the World of Goo homepage if you want to try before you buy: http://2dboy.com/games.php (nearly half-way down).

At first I didn't fully "get it" as the first couple of levels were so easy, but it definitely soon gets more addictive. I played the demo for over four hours.

Also note that there's no copy protection / serial number annoyances.

The only minor negative I can think of is that if you want to change the screen resolution, you have to edit a text config file.

And for everyone else's amusement, I bought it on Wednesday at full price ($20), but I wanted the Linux version which isn't available via Steam, so slightly less of a disaster.

Yeah I used to always want the box as well but nowadays if I can get a good digital deal and avoid a "reissue box" cluttering up the flat, I'm even happier. As I said before though, I probably won't consider it unless it's a weekend deal - I usually just wait to see what each new weekend brings!

The last game I pre-ordered was The Orange Box. Still worth it given the amount of content, but it really does pay to hold off on purchases either from Steam or retail if you have the patience. The difference is that Steam weekend sales typically give a massive discount for that period of time, while in retail the prices almost everywhere decline gradually (and usually permanently) with time.

:thumbsup: Me too! And their January sales- I've now picked up:
Bioshock
World of Goo
Audiosurf
Portal
Half Life 1

for £14! Ridiculous!

Bought it just now and downloading at a shocking 4 - 20kbs. Used to seeing speeds of around 500-600 through steam, this is poor!

I think this is from all the people downloading Unreal Tournament 3 for the free weekend play. It's a really large download and lots of people are doing it so it's having an effect on everything else.
#26
nice find, bought this for a mate on steam as a gift, good excuse to get it for myself =)
#27
Nice one - played and loved the demo, but couldn't afford / justify the full asking price. I can certainly accept £4.24 though! Excellent.

Now I've just got to wait a few months for Empire: Total War to be reduced from £39.99!!
#28
Deal's still on for the time being - I think Steam weekend sales usually go on for a little while into the Monday after....
#29
Not expired yet - just got it!
#30
Glad a few extra people managed to get it. I didn't realise that Steam sales lasted into the Monday, next time I'll make sure to set a slightly longer expiry date.

Played it a bit myself this weekend. I was a bit disappointed in the first 2 levels but then got completely addicted :) I think this is one of those games that I play for a few hours every and then forget about for months but keep coming back to for years.
#31
Likewise it's taken me a few levels to get into it. Just finished the first chapter and loving it now. I imagine it would be a good laugh for budding Civil Engineering students.
