CAG, I need recommendations! I'm new to PC gaming and don't own most of this stuff. I have a laptop with a 460m i5, ati radeon 5650, and 4GB ram.


Better question is how much can you afford? :D Trying to get your feet wet during a Steam sale has got to be like a kid living in a bubble going to a Toys R Us for the first time in his life.

I'm waiting for the daily deals to show up so I know which of these prices will not be around for 2 weeks - I imagine Winterbottom and SMB must be on that list.

i like civ revolution but have never played another civ game, i want to get into the series, should i get civ 4?


Civ V is better for new users but IV is no slouch...IV Complete pack would be my recommendation unless you don't mind the ~$30 for V.

I would strongly recommend the valve pack, basically all the valve games for... 25 bucks!


I strongly agree with this recommendation. The Half Life series is excellent, not to mention Portal, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, and Team Fortress 2. As a bonus, none of these games have nutty system requirements.

I went ahead and picked up Super Meat Boy. At $3.75 that has to be a daily deal price. I could be wrong but wont be too mad if it drops lower.

Definitely gonna pop on PB Winterbottom and BFBC2. I just wish I could use my xbox 360 controller with BFBC2 (Don't flame, I have a laptop and until I get a good desk and gaming mouse I will suck at FPS games, my trackpad is useless for gaming.)

Don't be a douche.
They specifically stated the introductory price would be the lowest for a long time. They stated they did that because they were tired of seeing customers buy games at launch only to get screwed over by the game being on sale shortly after.
I wouldnt care if they hadnt specifically said that, I wouldve waited to buy it like I do everything else.

hmmm steam checkout is taking a while. I think they are going to pull the deals on my Nancy Drew games. Probably a pricing error on them.

It's ok, Nancy Drew games are worth $100 each easy, so I felt a little bad that I might get such a good deal.

That and the shattered union game isn't going through, hyper annoying.

I remember plugging this game at either the last winter sale or the one from the summer, but Time Gentleman, Please: http://store.steampo....com/app/37400/ is one of the best point and click adventure games I've ever played. Made by an indie dev, it is absolutely hilarious and the puzzles aren't "what the hell are they thinking" hard. If you want a taste of it, the other game offered in the pack from the link (Ben There, Dan That) is free from the dev at their website, zombie-cow.com. They also have another game for free there, which I haven't really played and can't vouch for.
