    It's the Steam Summer Sale and it's no doubt assaulting your wallets. For the next two days, Fallout: New Vegas is 75% off, for the main game and the DLC. You can buy the regular edition for 2.49 EUR/USD/GBP or the Ultimate Edition for 4.99 EUR/USD/GBP.

    Fallout 3 is 75% off as well, same pricing: 4.99 for ultimate, 2.49 for regular.

    The old Fallouts are on a general sale, 50%. During Steam Summer Sale it's usually better to wait for a daily sale.

    For the sake of saying it, Fallout 3 GOTY is on sale for 4,99 too.

    I don't have any of the DLCs yet and thought I might grab them.

    Currently Ultimate edition is $5 or individual DLCs are like this:
    Gun Runner Arsenal: $0.49
    Courier's Stash: $0.24
    Lonesome Road: $1.24
    Old World Blues: $1.24
    Honest Hearts: $1.24
    Dead Money: $1.24
    =$5.69

    Anyone know how the Ultimate edition works? I'm guessing it will be listed as a separate game on Steam & have all the DLC included in it, but any chance it just lets me have the DLC added to my original game with a 2nd copy to gift to someone?

    And are all the DLC worth it? I enjoyed NV initially but eventually all the jogging around just got boring and I never actually completed the game. I had 2 or 3 characters that all made it to Vegas and did some % of the NCR, Legion, or House quests plus getting to all the Vaults/fixing the rocket/etc...but I just mostly like the talking and quests not the trudging from one destination to the next or shooter elements - so are their any DLC I should just skip?

    If it helps, here were the main draws of each DLC for me:

    Dead Man's Chest, err, the Sierra Madre one - probably my least favorite, but good if you like survival horror games (at least until you stock up enough ammo that it doesn't feel like survival anymore)

    Honest Hearts - probably my favorite, even if as Joshua Sawyer said, it was limited compared to the original intent. Beautiful, beautiful scenery; takes the Gamebryo engine to new places, and it has arguably the most compelling NPC in New Vegas in it.

    Old World Blues - third favorite; if going through dungeons and collecting loot is boring to you, you might not like it. Has great atmosphere, though.

    Lonesome Road - second favorite; kind of a pain in some areas, but if you liked FO3's ruined city compared to New Vegas's more realistic reviving civilization feel, this is your DLC.

    All in all I'd suggest at least playing Honest Hearts. It's not even a long DLC.

    And New Vegas is currently the no. 1 top seller on Steam. Yay?

    And of course the price is the same in EUR and in GBP, as in USD.

    Yes, what's up with that?

    Can't Steam pick a single currency like GoG did and sell their titles only in that currency?

    No, but 5 GBP is has more value than 5 EUR or 5 USD.

    Yes, and EUR has more value than USD.


    It's completely unfair.


    As I've said, GoG did it the fine way - all their games are sold in USD.

    Got an urge to get Fallout 3 goty for completeness, and maybe Point Lookout as that was some good times.
    Heh reading the description and it says eye popping "modern super-deluxe HD graphics" :V

    It's such old-fashioned thinking to believe you can still get away with that, especially in a digital marketplace. Australia usually gets screwed the hardest. The entire first-world marketplace should really just have one price-point, and then more reasonable pricing for other areas.

    True.

    But still, "should" is miles apart from "will", so I guess Steam will keep ripping me some more...

    Someone should make a mod that makes The Pitt and Point Lookout playable on their own without the dull main game.

    And a mod that redoes the whole plot of the Pitt to actually be grey and have consequences. And to make the Hillbillies in Point Lookout lose their super armor.

    I think that one exists, actually.

    I always mod away the extra 35 unblockable damage they do as well, that was just grief and made power armour look even worse compared to them.

    That's why I generally use Kinguin for my purchases. Cheaper, faster, fairer. Free market ftw.
