Default Steam weekend deal: id games 50% off

http://www.steampowered.com/v/index....&id=1800&cc=US

This includes the id super pack. If bought individually, the games would cost more than $200, but this weekend it's $34.99.

That'll be worth it just to have Hexen and Quake.

I've had an itch to play Quake 3 again but lost my CD key. The timing on this couldn't be better - it works out to $1.59 per game if you get the super pack.

I remember buying Hexen for DOS back in the day. It took seven 3.5-inch disks to install. Good times.

Good deal if you don't already have them all.

That is one incredible deal. I just can't do it though since I own a good portion of the games already. Though I do know I can't find some of the disks for some of the older iD titles like doom and quake. Isn't that pack missing quake 4 though?

Quake 4 isn't on Steam. ETQW is, but it's not part of the 50% off deal.

Yeah, that does suck because Q4 is a pretty good game. I think I might just have to pick this one up due to it have all Doom games plus it being on Steam.

Steam is great because I can play everything I've every bought on there on my notebook when I'm on the road.

Exactly. Some of the older classic games will work well on my work laptop when I'm on-site . . .

How do you find Quake 2 servers? Stupid GameSpy Arcade always glitches and never works right for me
