Wow... that's an even better deal than they had around Christmas.

I might grab them for that price.

Wow 3.75 for both I might have to grab that also. I have the first one for the xbox but I never bought the 2nd one.

Um wrong game... the first never released for the Xbox. You're thinking of the 3D game... this is the 2D platformer.

Wow I'm so glad Steam is having these awesome weekend sales.Now if they would just put Mirrors Edge up at 75% off I'd be stoked.I just refuse to pay full price for it.

I never heard of these games before. What are they like? Are they any good? What are you supposed to do?

The gameplay is similar to the old platform puzzle\adventure games like Another World (Out of this World), Flashback and Blackthorne.

Lots of jumping, lots of timing, flipping switches etc.

Very fun stuff but can be extremely difficult.

Doesn't Steam know I am trying to buy retail boxes again? How am I supposed to resist these sales?

Oh yeah that's right Munch's odyssey or something like that. But I bought both but I could swear I played Abe's before sometime I just can't remember on what. The Exoddus one I am pretty sure I never played.

I was like you about retail boxes but I decided to give up and go for a lot cheaper prices. For consoles, I rather buy retail boxes instead. Maybe it'll change someday in the future.

Doubt I'm getting those, because some puzzles requires listening to sound to copy certain moves like farting. :(

This might decrease the number of people wanting to buy the PS1 version which is bad for me as they sell quite well.

I never got around to playing the PS2 game, Dont see any copies of it either.

Was there a PS2 game?

The Xbox 3D game was awful, as I recall... there was talk of a PC port way back, but obviously that isn't happening now.

I hear Stranger's Wrath is amazing, but never played it.

I don't care at all, as long as it's cheap I'm fine with it. Boxes only take storagespace, downloadable copies don't. I'd rather download everything because it's easy, automatic updates, no more bad DVDs, accessible everywhere. No, I'd rather have it on Steam than retail box :)

Except of Another World (Which I haven't played) I never heard of those too. The fact that this game is from 1998 I think I'll pass :)
