Ongoing sales and discounts

Discussion not focusing on a single game or series. Also forum-related matters.

Humble Store has Racing Week, lots of stuff on sale there.

For some reason Rocket League is there as well. Maybe it's just a pet peeve, but even a co-worker asked me if I had heard about Rocket League "since I'm into racers". Dude, it's not a racing game. It's football with cars. Not the same thing.

It did win "racing / sports game of the year" in the game awards last year. Seriously.

Well, since the award had the "sports" qualifier in there, it's acceptable. Kind of weird that they'd lump racing games along with Madden in the first place, but I guess somebody thought there just weren't enough racing game releases to justify having a separate "racing game of the year" award.

It really isn't a sports game either, just because the objective is similar to that of football (or hockey or basketball). It's just an RC sandbox.

Also it beat Forza 6 and NFS on that, so it still doesn't really apply.

For a start, since we sorely lacked of proper racer that isn't a pretend racecar simulator in these couple of years we'd better consider RL as one.

Green Man Gaming has their summer sale on, and you can get Trackmania games on the cheap. Not many other racing games are discounted.

Speaking of GRID, it's being delisted from GOG on Dec. 31st. They're offering the game at -80% as a goodbye sale, so here's possibly the last chance to grab it DRM-free.

What a shame. I really like GOG, also i've bought GRID from there even when Steam have it in discount. For me when i see a game that i like it on GOG i've bought it like Doom 1 and 2, so i hope to see more games in a future

Not only that, GRID, DIRT3 and F1 2013 all are no longer purchaseable on Steam as well due to license expiration. Or so from what I heard.

DiRT Showdown free on Humble Bundle. Maybe will suffer the same destiny of GRID, F1 2013 and DiRT 3

Bundle Stars is offering Overdrive Bundle with a bunch of racing games, and some that probably shouldn't be classified as such.

You can play DiRT Rally for free on Steam for the next three days, and buy it at a heavy -70% discount. I don't think the game was that cheap even when it was in Early Access.
