When I was at PAX a few weeks ago, I mentioned to one of the guys working the GoG booth that I was waiting for Tex Murphy to go on sale again since I missed it the last time (I was aware of the sale, but didn’t go for it).
I’m sure it’s just a co-incidence but today I received word that the Tex Murphy series of games were indeed on sale again until Monday.
In a way the deal is not as good as last time, since you could buy all 4 for $14.36 (instead of $17.96). The catch was if you didn’t want all 4 the discount dropped to 30%. This time you get 50% off whether you want 1 game or all 4.
I still have my original copies for UAKM, Pandora and Overseer, but UAKM has one or two bad discs and it would be nice to have digital copies that didn’t require disc swaps. Also, I suppose it would be in bad taste to not buy them since I asked for the sale, though I’m sure it’s just a co-incidence. OR IS IT? 😉
As you would expect, we had a great time at PAX this year.
I was a little disappointed that some of the bigger companies like Intel and NVidia failed to show up with their own booths, but that’s mostly because they offered some of the best giveaways last year.
There were still a bunch of great game launches and demos including Uncharted 3 and Mass Effect 3 (both games I am very excited to play).
I guess over all it seemed bigger yet smaller at the same time. Bigger in that a lot of the lines were just crazy. I ended up playing the Mass Effect 3 demo at the Xbox 360 booth because the Bioware lines were always 2 to 3 hours long. Smaller because there seemed to be fewer big game launches than last year.
Either way, it was still a blast and I can’t wait until PAX 2012 rolls around. 😀
Wow, only 3 days left until PAX Prime 2011.
My 12 yr old son will be with me this year. I think he is pretty excited.
It does limit the after parties that we can attend though. It seems like a majority of them are 21+. 🙁
If you were hoping to get 3 day passes for this years PAX Prime before they sold out and haven’t gotten around to it yet, well, I’m sorry to say but you are too late.
It was announced on Friday that they have officially sold out and that only single day passes are available.
The single day passes still offer an excellent value and I’m sure the Saturday and Friday passes will sell out soon enough.
If you intend to go this year, I suggest you buy passes before it is too late!!!!
