well, time to spend the day debating in my head on what to buy lol...

King's Bounty Gold - Will probably get this.

TellTale Everything Pack - I already own Tales of Monkey Island through TellTale so I don't need another copy. I've never played any of the other series though except the demo of Sam and Max 101 which seemed fun. I just am not sure if I want to spend $50 on it... good deal though.

Civ 4 - I didn't buy a few days ago because I figured I can wait until Civ 5 but then Final Fantasy 14 was announced for the same week as Civ 5 which means I won't buy Civ 5 for awhile...

Sol Survivor - I will probably join in on a 4-pack later since Defense Grid didnt' go cheaper.

:bouncy:

Note: If you attempt to install 7 games at the same time, Steam will crash.

Just finished up my purchases for the sale, picked up the Introversion pack and Heroes of Might and Magic 5 pack.

You can download a patch for free that will turn standard edition to the enhanced edition.



Its worth noting that you have to register with a site, download a series of patches, and then patch in the proper order while rubbing your tummy, patting your head, and singing a song made up predominantly of the letters quhz in that order.

An hour later, you'll have the EE. Or you can buy the EE straight up. Your choice.

Personally, I like the final day recap. I didn't want to spend the money on the Borderlands DLC unless there wasn't anything else coming that was awesome and a deal. EA gives us BFBC2 at $33, Square Enix gives us Just Cause 2 at $24.99, and THQ gives us Metro 2033 at $24.99. All games I'd have wanted, but not at those prices. Hard to believe there's nothing to have wanted yesterday, but that means i return to considering Cryostasis, Beat Hazard, Borderlands DLC, and Trine.

What other games offer that option?


L4D $10.05 Trade Thread
L4D2 $7.65 Trade Thread
Sol Survivor $3.75 Trade Thread
Borderlands $7.65 Trade Thread
Plain Sight $7.50
Zero Gear $10

Scourge Project [$4.99 individually]
Bioshock 2 $11.25 Trade Thread

Any more that I'm missing? Any threads missing?

No it's not (unless you're buying from someone other than Amazon). Steam is selling the Enhanced Edition. That still goes for $18 on Amazon.

I'm not paying $7 more for box art and a patch.

Nothing for me really in this sale as I had most of what I wanted already. I picked up Beat Hazard for $2.49 and I'm tempted to pick up Plants vs. Zombies for $6.99. I just wish it would drop in price already.

Amen. Stay strong, brother. Stay strong.

lol

Oh well, I may grab Red Faction: Guerrilla for $5, since I passed before.

Recommendations? Fun? Story?

Yes, very, grab it. But only if you like blowing stuff up and smashing things with sledgehammers

As a guy who mainly plays (almost exclusively actually) single-player, would I be better off picking up Borderlands or L4D2 or neither? Thoughts?

Thanks.


Seeing as how all but one of L4D2's game modes are only available online, I'd say Borderlands. Yes, Borderlands can be much more fun with more players, but it's perfectly playable the way it is and, along with the DLC, is a great value of play hours per $.

Couple quick questions, both regarding co-op.

Do both Alien Breed: Impact and Sol Survivor support online co-op, or are they only local?

Alien Breed - "online two-player co-operative battle mode"
Sol Survivor - local or online http://www.co-optimu...-Op_Review.html

OK - so cost aside for Red Faction Guerrilla, which would you say is better PC or 360? (I'm not bias towards either platform - just want the best experience)

Having to resist Borderlands yet again.....If NCAA 11 and Starcraft 2 weren't coming out this month, I would have done it already. If I can hold out, I think I'll probably wait for the Christmas sale

In for THQ, Monkey Island, and PvZ today. Considering Tropico Reloaded, Necrovision, and Scourge Project before I pull the trigger. Thoughts?

Nothing in the daily recap that I need/want. Grabbed some cheap stuff - Sacred Gold, Cryostasis, Puzzle Kingdoms, Samarost 2, Time Gentlemen Please! pack, Broken Sword 3. Also got Monkey Island 2 SE. I really can't decide if I want Dawn of Discovery, knowing my history with simulation games.

the xbox 360 community is small online but still active. PC is dead.

It was $7 last holiday sale, which seems standard for Popcap games.

Winterbottom - $2.49
Peggle complete - $10.49
PvZ - $6.99

Total: $48.43

I just realized that other than Thief DS, I already own every game above on at least one other platform... that's the power of Steam.
