So I am getting into PC gaming, lured in by 1080p 60fps with AA plus point and click games.

I had this image in my mind of going to Steam and finding tons of almost new games for a tenner, but so far everything I've looked (eg Skyrim, MW3, Fallout NV, Ridge Racer Unbounded etc.) at is 29.99 or something like that. So I take it I have to stay put and wait for sales and promotions?

Second noob question, Steam is really the only DD service I would trust to have staying power. Can I buy games from Origin and GOG, but somehow have the license stored in Steam?

so I just learned that Prototype 2 comes out this month. Looks like it's getting the "not CoD" advertising treatment, despite some advertising a year ago or so.

It's also nowhere to be seen on Steam. Is this normal for Activision, or..?

If you can't wait for a sale, you can always find Steamworks deals on other sites like amazon/gmg. The games you listed are all Steamworks, and have to be registered to a Steam account.

Always check for Daily/Weekly sales and save up money for the big summer/winter ones. You will definitely get new-ish games for a tenner then. The normal prices on Steam are in line with retail, but on sale, dear god.

Just wait, in a few months you'll have more games than you can play in a lifetime.

Games on this list

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...7480-wusf-3601

can be activated on Steam, no matter where you bought them from (also known as "Steamworks", even though not entirely correct).

Cool, so I can buy retail games on the cheap and register them too as long as they are on the list.

And do I get this right, I can buy Amazon DD too but register via Steam? Awesome if so

You'll need to re-send the message.

Your profile has to say "redditor for 1 day" and THEN you can send a PM to the bot.

I'm not sure if these are correct, but the names Fray and Lone Survivor were added to the registry. It could be related to these games: http://www.lonesurvivor.co.uk/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=8xD-HR6rfC0. I can't be 100% sure.

Lone Survivor seems to be getting great reviews and press. Fray looks interesting, but still pretty rough (still in Alpha).

Activision's handling of Prototype 2 is baffling. They were talking big a month or two ago about how it's going to "own" April, and how they're expecting it to double the sales of the original, but the original was a deeply divisive game and they have seemingly done nothing to explain to people why this one is better. And, like you, I have seen no advertising for it at all.

I don't think I'll have time to play AoE Online before the discounts end, but looking at the 9.99 All in Wonder pack, it seems to include everything except the cosmetic stuff. So am I essentially buying the complete full game for 9.99?

Or are there still some other forms of in game currency or items I'd have to buy if I didn't want to wait to progress, as you have to in some other F2P games?

Well the PC version was delayed to July and in terms of advertising the only thing I'm seeing are the Gamestop commercials for the game advertising preorder dlc.
