    Okay for my last bit to spend on this sale -

    Beat Hazard, or Borderlands DLC. If the latter, which one?

    General Knoxx.

    If it ends up being 2, skip the underdome pack for sure.

    It ended up being 2, and I did <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    Nice. I've only actually played the first two packs. I lost my save file on the PS3 right before starting the third. Was slightly mad about that, to say the least. But me and my friend had a blast playing Dr Ned. Then got bored out of our skulls playing Underdome. It starts of ok, but it's just insanely repetitive.

    The Underdome would be great if it was broken up into smaller pieces. I've actually enjoyed dropping in for one round at a time. But doing 5 in a single sitting is goddamn grueling. Not the good kind of grueling with self-motivation and personal accomplishment. The bad kind of grueling with wishing you could stick an egg beater up your nostrils and go to town on your cerebellum.

    If anyone is starting a L4D2 4-pack, I'd appreciate being informed; one of my friends missed the last sale by a couple of hours.

    I'm considering heavily about taking part in this

    Would really love to take part in this too!!! Let me know PM details etc if it goes down...

    Okay, I'm more than likely going to buy the four-pack. esp since it's only 30 bucks

    By my counting, I see only 3 names attached to this 4-pack.

    If there is still an available spot, I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a copy of L4D2 today.

    Okies, I'm buying it, pm me your email accounts guys

    So, before I finally pull the trigger on this cart should I get Space Rangers 2 or Men at War? Kind of torn on them, and don't want to get both.

    I am also finally getting Borderlands, I take it the Knoxx DLC is worth it at 3 bucks, since everyone says it's the only one that doesn't suck?

    Edit: Also, THANKS for the folks talking about the Introversion pack, completely missed it and it looks completely awesome!

    Deffinitely get Knoxx, seems to be the favourite of the DLC. I'd also go with Men of War. Mainly 'cause I did. <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    My haul was fairly light.

    Borderlands DLC (All 3)
    Introversion Pack
    id Super Pack
    Thief: Deadly Shadows

    About $48, I believe. There are still a couple games I'm considering (Defense Grid, Killing Floor, X-COM Complete Pack, maybe a couple others), and I'm going to go through all of the categories again when I get home from work to see if I missed anything, but I seriously doubt I'm going to plop the money down for anything else.

    Im gonna ask again here, since i dont think I ever got a response in the last thread.

    What mods/other stuff are out there for Guild 2 pirates? I remember hearing something about this in the threads at some point, but I dont want to wade through 2 100 page threads to find it.

    This is the mod people were suggesting, though there was some discussion after that about how it made some gameplay tweaks that might make it more difficult for a newcomer. (I haven't installed it yet -- I got through the tutorial and about half an hour of a game, which was enough for me to decide I need to find a Guild 2 for Dummies guide.)

    It was amusing to have Massachusetts as part of our country, but now, of course, like so much of the coastal nation, it no longer qualifies as America.

    This almost made me stop playing. Talk about overload. I'm just happy I stuck with it enough to start figuring the game out. I think the greatest moment I've had is when I started converting the population to protestant, and if someone refused, I'd have the dungeon guards torture them.

    God I forgot how amazing Thief 3 is.

    I'm not looking forward to that level again though.

    I think when I beat it I should finally try it on expert.

    Dawn of Discovery Gold: worth it for the $20? I haven't heard much about it and I already got a ton of games from this sale but I'm intrigued, I love a good city-builder.

    It is pretty much a city builder, with boats to trade with. You make a population, level them, they get new needs and you do it some more. There is boat combat, but it takes a little while to get to the ground combat/invading others islands.

    I love it, I love builders too. The only thing that really detracts for me is the ground combat is a little slow, but there are so many different ways to play the game. War, diplomacy, buying up city council seats in the other persons town and seizing control (or deleting the town.)...a few more I think too.

    It's fun, you can Coop with friends and vs. I guess it's bigger in EU. Lots of german peeps on it.

    I like both of these games, but I have to say they are quite different from each other. Space Rangers 2's gameplay is a bit outdated, while Men of War's is much more modern. Space Rangers definately has more charm and personality to it though. It doesn't have multiplayer, which Men of War does. Personally, I think it depends on your tastes. If you're a more casual gamer who wants more instant gratification, I think that Space Rangers 2 will be better (though the game does have some depth). If you're looking for a game that tough as nails but equally as rewarding, Men of War might be the one to choose.

    Well, damage so far:

    Borderlands
    Civ 4 Uber pack
    Champions Online
    Day of Defeat: Source
    Freedom Force pack
    Introversion pack
    Trine
    Ghost Master

    Not THAT much but this sale is addicting.

    I am still staring at Shadowgrounds, Men at War and the Knoxx pack for BL though...crap. So cheap!

    Edit: Thanks CPUgeek, yeah I kind of dropped the love for Space Rangers 2, even if it looks decent. I'm more into RTS and MP, so I leaned towards Men at War. Well, until I saw Shadowgrounds too. :(

    Borderlands DLC: Dr. Ned, Moxxi, Knoxx
    Thief: Deadly Shadows
    Titan Quest Gold

    I came out relatively well, but all those $4 and $5 games really start adding up.

    Steam makes me feel so dirty. There's no other way to feel when I buy a game I've already played and beaten because I can get two expansion packs for way less than the price of one of them by doing so.

    And also another game or three.

    Guys I'm still on the fence about the Telltale complete pack. I'm only interested in it for the Sam & Max and Monkey Island. I don't really care about their other stuff which is why I'm hesitant to plop down the money for like 4 games I don't even care about.

    But at the same time, its only 50 bucks for a few games that individually are worth like 70 dollars when combined. I just don't know. Its been so long since I've even played an adventure game of that type that I don't even know if I would enjoy it or appreciate them.

    Done and done.

    Bionic Commando + Rearmed
    Introversion Pack
    Killing Floor
    Mount and Blade: Warband
    Plants Vs Zombies
    Silent Hill: Homecoming
    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
    Supreme Commander 2
    Theif: Deadly Shadows
    Unreal Tournament 3

    Jesus Christ....Looks ridiculous. Though 60GBP for 14 games isn't bad at all. That wouldn't even get you two new console releases.

    Took a good stab at Bionic Commando earlier. Maybe because I've went in with very low expatiations, but I'm actually quite liking it. Nothing mind blowing, but well worth the price.

    EDIT: Hmm, I don't think my list deserves a "Jesus Christ" response anymore. GG guys.
