    Secret Santa: GOTY Edition 2015
    Digital Deluxe Premium Remix 2.5

    Another year has come and gone and it's time for our annual bloodsport Not-So-Secret Santa.

    HISTORY

    For those who are new to DLP, I'll give you a basic history. 'DLP Secret Santa' was originally conceived in 2011. It came to be after a certain, magnificent Admin (then Moderator) decided to give away some games to the members of DLP as a festive gesture. Other members, deciding to be similarly generous decided to throw their own games into the pile and it soon grew to the point where there was an excess of games and not enough people to receive them.

    The doors were opened and every member of DLP was invited to take part to receive a game. There was no requirement beyond being a member of DLP and posting asking to receive a game.

    A combined 47 members of DLP donated an impressive 144 games ranging from Magicka, Terraria and Limbo to newly released games like Skyrim and Saints Row: The Third.

    All in all it was a successful event that was intended to be a one off occurrence.

    Except, it wasn't.

    During the following year 2012 members in preparation for the next secret Santa began to purchase games in secret, hording them over the course of the year from steam sales, humble bundles and various other sources.

    It wasn't long before members began to ask when Secret Santa would be announced, and when it finally was, they came in force.

    In the 2012 Secret Santa more a little under 300 games were put forth for the event. It was a resounding success, in no small part due to Midknight, who voluntarily took over the administration side that year.

    Since then, every year has come and gone, and at the end of them a Secret Santa is held.

    It is only due to the generosity of Dark Lord Potter's member base that we are able to hold this event. You do not have to provide a game to receive one.

    Every one who puts their hand up for a game, gets one.

    Instructions

    If you would like to provide a game, then post the game name.
    If you would like to receive a game, then post requesting one.

    To be involved pleased ensure the following:

    • You are a a member of the DLP Steam Group (If not, ask for an invitation!)
    • You have your Steam Profile Link in your signature
    • You have a few games in your Steam Wish List

    I have Arma: Cold War Assault and Contraption Maker ready to go to someone else.

    I'd appreciate pretty much any game on my wishlist.

    I'll put my hand up for a game. Will see if I can rustle up a few titles to give away, too.

    Yeah I've got the following to give away:
    Shadow Run: Dragonfall Director's cut.
    DMC Devil May Cry.
    Banished
    (which seems to be region locked for some reason. So, this might be transferable/Giftable only to people in India).

    I might add another one or two at a later time.
    Wouldn't mind receiving a game myself. :p

    Depending on my next paycheck I may be able to put some stuff towards this, but I'll happily receive a game if people are willing.

    to offer, but this might yet change.

    Also, yeah sure, I'm up for receiving.

    I'm up for receiving something, and have Besieged to give. Not sure if I can to everyone though, there's this pop up that says "This is a restricted gift which can only be redeemed in these countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, VietNam", that normal?

    In past years I got games through Secret Santa without contributing much. This year I collected a few good games to try and make up for it, along with a host of not-as-good games that people might still be interested in.

    Thanks again for past Secret Santas, DLP. With extra kudos to @Midknight and @Jon.

    Games:
    How to Survive - Storm Warning Edition x2
    Castle Crashers x2
    Brothers
    The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Duct x2
    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition x2
    Trine 2: Complete Story
    Hitman: Blood Money
    The Ship: Murder Party
    Deponia
    The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav
    Dawn of War II: Retribution - The Last Standalone
    The Music Machine
    Borderlands 2
    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II
    Europa Universalis III Complete
    Child of Light
    Poker Night 2
    Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut
    Payday The Heist
    Saints Row IV: Game of the Century Edition
    Left 4 Dead
    Hotline Miami

    Postal 2
    Waveform
    BEEP
    Particle Mace

    I realize that some of these games, like BEEP, are unlikely to be on anyone's list of games they want. But I listed them just in case.

    Games I want:
    Some of the games on my wishlist are there because my regular gaming group is considering buying them for co-op. I'd be happy to have any of them, of course, but I don't usually play co-op games solo.

    I also love RPGs and don't have many listed. I'd appreciate any solid RPG that I don't already have, regardless of whether it's turn-based, action-adventure, or first-person shooter. I'm also super stoked for Undertale, but I expect it'll go on sale soon enough and I can pick it up then.

    I'm also 100% earnest when I say that I don't need to get anything at all. I've got plenty of games, and DLP gave me some great games through this when I was broke. I'm happy sitting out a year and contributing only.

    That was rousing! CheddarTrek for Moderator! Oh, wait...

    Anyway, I'll have to revise my wishlist and check my inventory when I can later, but I'm up for both giving and receiving.

    I'm tossing into the pile a copy of Shadow Warrior, Nuclear Throne, and three copies of Nation Red.

    Will probably toss more as we get closer to the final date.

    Well region locking gets in the way but I have a few to contribute:

    Awesomenauts
    Frozen Synapse
    Retro City Rampage™ DX
    E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy
    Planets Under Attack

    Also have a few keys that I am uncertain if work or not but those I think I will just offer someone here to try their luck when things start.

    As for want any from my wishlist after I clean it up works.

    If no one minds that a newbie such as myself joins in, I would be up for giving and receiving. Right now I can offer:

    Grid 2
    Dirt Showdown + DLC
    Grid Autosport + DLC
    Dirt 3 - Complete Edition


    I'll have more stuff later.

    EDIT:

    It's pretty stupid of me but I bought the Thief Collection expecting that it would appear as four different gifts in my inventory (one for each game included) but it actually comes as one gift with all the games included. I already have Thief and I don't want to redeem the gift as it means I'll have paid for the same game twice, but only have one copy of it, so I'll offer it here:

    Thief Collection

    Do not edit your old posts. If you're adding games then mention it in a new post.
