Glad BloodBowl Chaos edition won. I bought it earlier in the sale and now that I've figured it out I'm really enjoying it.

is Tony Hawk any good?
I think I'm getting that one and Giana Sisters.


The physics are off, and there's pretty bad screen tearing that can be fixed with an .ini tweak. It could be a lot better, but it's a decent bit of nostalgia for $5.

In for the THPSHDDLC and Giana Sisters; would've considered Driver if I didn't have it.

Finally picked up FTL on the daily. No regrets - I just lost two hours on easy mode before I died. It is fun and strangely addictive.

Thirty Flights of Loving isn't worth $2.50.

Just saying

I briefly considered Driver San Francisco, but I probably wouldn't be playing it right away and it feels like that's about due for a base price drop. I wouldn't be surprised if it dropped to $20 the day after the sale.

I'll wait until the Summer sale on that one.

Ended up voting Civ V. I figure even if CK2 won the latest dlc likely wouldn't see a discount anyway. Glad I was able to grab Giana sisters.

Should I get Xcom, or does anyone think it'll be cheaper a little later?

It's already been cheaper on Gamefly and Amazon, and both activate on Steam. It won't be cheaper on Steam than this price, and was already a flash deal for the same price. Odds are it won't be back at this price this sale.

I am seriously thinking I may finally bite on Civ 5 if it gets the vote. I played some of 3 and 4 and both were just to complex for my taste. I have read that 5 is a bit easier. I wish the Civ game from the 360 would come to steam as that was a game i really enjoyed.

No, I didn't miss it. But I didn't include that little bit of info because I thought it would make me seem pathetic for wanting a copy on Steam when I already got a copy for $1. lol

So I tried Offspring Fling, and well I don't think I could ever play that game again. It's not that it's bad, it's cute, has fun music, and I am sure the game is fine. It's just whenever I play it, the gameplay reminds me of Noah's Ark from the Bible Adventures NES game.

Oh god the pain... :lol:

Also why is Giana Sisters 4 gigs, it's a platformer?

Pretty sure someone on the page before said it was the cheapest it's been and cheapest at the moment, even beating GMG's 30% voucher.
But holy cow 4GBs....o.o. I'm going to need a new HDD soon.

They did an excellent job with the visuals though. It's not some little fleabag thrown together indie game.

Plus Swedish Metal music.

I probably won't get it but Giana Sisters is a gorgeous game!!! Total Biscuit seemed to think it was solid too. Perhaps I'll give it a try down the road.

Not it.

Thinking I'm going in for Giana Sisters. It'll be cheaper someday, but five bucks so soon after release is good enough for me.

Going to keep waiting on FTL, though.

It's good to see some "good enough" purchases around here instead of all the "BLARG SALE SURRKS" posts. I bought Giana Sisters as well at that price.

Steam has the demo to try out for free.

Yeah, the music in the demo was what really sold me on the game.

Did GOG give out the soundtrack for Giana? I'm not normally a soundtrack person but Giana's is awesome and I kind of want it.

Yes, but it only came with a 2 track sampler. No full soundtrack.
