I was going through steam and looking at all the packs of games they have for offer. I noticed that Game series bundles on Steam are not the cheapest but they are OK for Steam prices. If I bought the CD/DVD versions of these games it would be cheaper but I would not get the DLC Steam offers for the games + I would get all the games patched and updated by Steam for me, saving plenty of time.
Here are some packs Im looking at ( some with their CD/DVD counterpart) :
Men of War
Steam Pack : http://store.steampowered.com/sub/14299/
CD/DVD Pack : http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/2655...ngDetails.html
The savings on the Steam version are actaully not too bad since I think going the extra bit to save time updating and patching. And the price different between both are not even that bad.
Company of Heros
Steam Pack : http://store.steampowered.com/sub/1529/
CD/DVD version : There is not a complete pack but there is a gold edition : http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/3511...rlrefer=search
Total War Series (Excluding Shogun 1 & 2)
Steam pack :http://store.steampowered.com/sub/11..._7_suggest__13
CD/DVD pack : http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/3048...rlrefer=search
You get more from the Steam version as it gives you all the games and their DLC's.
What do you guys think. I think comparing the prices and how much Steam offers I think the Steam packs are pretty decent. Although I would have to wait ages for it to be downloaded thro my horrible connection, but its getting sorted next week so
