It's that merry Christmas time of year again...

Postby iamafish » 23 Dec 2011, 06:08

and the steam sale is on!!!!!

What crazy deals have you scooped up so far?

I got
Limbo for £1.74
Batman Arkham City for £20

not a bad haul so far. Looking out for deals on AC:Brotherhood, TW: Shogun 2 and possibly a couple of others

I haven't actually bought anything so far. I keep being tempted to, but most of the stuff I already own on one console or another.

Not a single game has appeared that I've been interested in so far. I briefly considered NWN2, but that's it.

I picked up Jurassic Park, since I wasn't sufficiently interested at full price, but at half price was a reasonable deal, but other than that its not been hugely promising thus far.

Briefly considered picking up Arkham City, but I suspect in the January sales, I'll probably be able to grab it for less than £20 in physical form and with money that isn't my own, so I'm waiting on that one.

I picked up games for a friend for his birthday (which is today). Since I had a budget for him it allowed me to get him more games.
I took things from his wishlist, and he had a bunch of cheap games (1.25 after sale) so I'm probably not going to list them, but yeah, took advantage of the sale.

So far Dungeons of Dredmor for about $1.50 I think (I can't recall the exact price)

Definitely worth it. :P

I'm hoping for something more than 33% off the Splinter Cell pack. $30 is still a bit much for me.

Picked up the Pendulo pack for £9.99 as I'd been eyeing some of their games for a while but that's it - doesn't seem to be all that much interesting stuff so far this year.

Could also be that a lot of the sale items are in every sale, Fallout 3? Bought it in a different steam sale, Jedi Knight series? Every year.

The only big differences each sale are the new games and I can't think of many new games this year that I'd play and haven't already bought.

I got Audiosurf for 2,49 Euro (because I had been thinking about buying it for some time, but found 9,99 a bit steep) and Portal 2 for 14,95 Euro (Because I loved Portal, and played some of it from a pirated version. I really wanted to buy it "for realz)

Frozen Synapse - Some guys at my uni made it so I felt I should show my support. It's on my ever growing "To Play" list.

I haven't bought anything yet, but I got The Witcher from today's contest which I've been considering getting for a while, so that's pretty nice :)

My brother, on the other hand, got a 10% off Sega coupon... not exactly useful, given the frequency of much larger sales.

This game turned out to be as good as everyone said it would be. But it plays like a console port: I keep losing the boss battles because winning requires tactics like "run in circles around the abomination while holding down Q and Left Shift, and tap the right button to attack." That's probably much easier to do on a console controller than on a keyboard+mouse setup.

My wish for 2012 is that all PC games will adopt a consistent control scheme: W to move forward, left button to make adversaries catch on fire, and right button to make them soar off the edge of the map.

Got Bastion + the soundtrack for little over £5. Also picked up Fallout 3 and Poker Night at the Inventory too on the cheap.

Very tempted to get the Assassin's collection, but I think I'd prefer it on consoles, so I'll probably leave it.

Did buy KOTOR though yesterday.

Solution: PS3/360 (I recommend 360) controller for PC.

I also picked up three of the 4 tomb raider games yesterday.

Everything but Underworld.

It is a bit frustrating that EDGE is on as a daily deal 10 days after being an achievement game, but I'm glad my paranoia forced me to wait.
and now; back to me.
