50% Off Mass Effect This Weekend on Steam

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 14 comments

Mass Effect for half the price, anyone?

In case none of our deals yesterday interested you, you can always pick up Mass Effect at 50 percent off from Steam this weekend.

Steam is offering Mass Effect for $10 (that's £6.49 for our UK readers) all this weekend. It might be a couple of years old but Mass Effect is a sterling game, especially for the PC. Those of you who have never played (pretty nice set up you got under that rock, dude), would do well to make this investment.

Have a great weekend guys!

    Damn, and I paid 50$ for it and never really played it. Guess I'll give it a go again now that you've reminded me Miss McEntegart.

    Although I'm rather addicted to Dragon Age Origins, Bioware makes some great games, and some very PG sex scenes, lol.

    Not so old but great game. Only single player if I'm not mistaken.
    If it had multi, I would buy.

    I paid 20 last month, sigh oh well. I hope that they will come out with ME2 on the 360 as well as PC.

    This is like the 50th Steam story I've read here. Are they advertisers or what? Not that there's anything wrong with that. Tom's gotta eat :)

    Boycotted the game because of DRM issues.

    DRM removed and $10, sold, just bought it.

    I torrented the PC version, but it was too riddled with bugs so I bought the console version... but this is mighty tempting still.

    Eh, I bought the retail version for $16-$17 once they removed the activation limit. It turned out to be an awesome game. I would have paid the release price if the DRM hadn't been so strict.

    I'd have pirated it for the DRM issues. I didn't bother cause I had already played it on 360 where there aren't any.

    But that sounds like a nice price for new people.

    I will never buy a steam game again. I bought 6 steam games and cant play any of them now because Steam is buggy and cant connect to their servers.

    Those of us on Windows 7 need to do a few things to get this to work correctly. I don't know if this affects just the 64-bit version (which is what I run on), but I had trouble getting this to run.

    If you are attempting to run the game and even though it appears as if it's loading but eventually it doesn't, then you need to create an icon on your desktop. Right click on it and set the compatibility mode to by Vista SP1 or SP2. This fixed the problem for me. Now, if I could just get it to load faster. Currently, it takes about 2 to 3 minutes to load. Once it's loaded, the game runs great and I'm only 15 minutes into the game but I'm already enthralled by the story and can't wait to see what happens. Oh, and it looks gorgeous.
