    So a bunch of people have been talking about cryostasis and the chrome games and for that price I think i'll take the plunge on em. Coupled with RFG because of, you know, space asshole and the witcher I think I'll be done with this sale.

    Also I just noticed all the genesis games added to steam. my tab hadn't been on the new releases the entire sale so i never noticed em before

    Hey guys, I'm looking to get a game on sale that I can play co-op or competitively with a maximum of two other friends. We have L4D2 and I just bought TF2, so any other recommendations?

    Something like how that Greed game looks, but I can't find anything about it online. Anybody buy that?

    Think I'm finally done, unless there's some small deal I missed.

    Dark Void Zero (cheap as hell)
    Clive Barker's Jericho (ditto)
    Serious Sam 2 (daily deal, I already own the first one, not the second)
    Commandos Pack (daily deal, cheap)
    Winterbottom (daily deal, again cheap as hell. Already own it, but wanted to give them money for awesome game)
    Borderlands DLC (good deal, was waiting for it to go down in price)
    Just Cause 2 + DLC (the only thing I REALLY wanted out of this sale, so kickass)
    DMC 4 (replaces my 360 copy)
    Red Faction: G (ditto)
    Introversion pack (I usually hate strategy games, but wanted to give them a shot for that price)

    So are they more sim-like or more arcade style?

    More towards the arcade side of the spectrum, but it can, if you let it, be pretty unforgiving. You can pretty easily take a wrong turn and total your car, or spin out and be overtaken.

    Which is why the rewind feature is one of the most awesome things in a racing game, ever.

    There is damage and it affects your car, but sometimes you can see pretty battered up cars still racing. It's not a sim, that's for sure.

    EDIT: And nothing beats puffy dice hanging from your rearview mirror.

    I've got Gothic 3 in my cart - What else would be a good last-day game?

    So far I've bought:

    - The Witcher (Hell yea!)
    - Tropico 3/Addon
    - Torchlight
    - Killing Floor
    - NecroVision (Great game!)
    - The Guild II
    - Star Wars The Force Unleashed (Actually pretty meh)

    I would like to pause for a moment, to talk about my penis.
    My penis is like a toddler. A toddler—who is a perfectly normal size for his age—on a long road trip to what he thinks is Disney World. My penis is excited because he hasn’t been to Disney World in a long, long time, but remembers a time when he used to go every day. So now the penis toddler is constantly fidgeting, whining “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? How about now? Now? How about... now?”
    And Disney World is nowhere in sight.

    Could someone give me the lowdown on Trine?
    It's a 2d physics based puzzle platformer with fantastic presentation and level design. The only real problem with the game is that the difficulty curve is off, but asides from that it's a absolute steal for only 4$.

    This except it's not 2D, its a 3D sidescroller.
    I meant that it plays on a 2d plane, not that it's a 2d game.

    I'm honestly fed up with Gothic 3. It's dirt-easy yet still pulls out cheap bullshit at times by default, and it's nothing but cheap bullshit all the time with the fanpatch installed and its "balance" options on.

    If you get Gothic 3, install the 1.72 fanpatch and leave all the extra bullshit options OFF. They add nothing but annoyance and frustration to an already annoying and frustrating game.

    Edit: Strike that, just seen Men of War is £3.23 which would be perfect. It's the first one, not red tide. That shouldn't be an issue though.

    The fanpatch's "rebalancing" is balls-out retarded. Their solution to keep you from hitstunning everything to death is to make stuff semi-randomly immune to damage for a second or so, allowing it to counter you. The intent is to make it so you pop out a couple hits and then back off for a moment before going back on the offensive.

    The problem with this is that there's no indication that the attack you just sent straight through the midsection of your enemy is going to pass through and do no damage while they then proceed to make you take it through the pants. Some times you can land 6-7 hits in a row with no problem on one enemy, and then the very next one will take one solid hit and be immune to the second. This is especially annoying with Orcs who have not only had their attacks beefed up when weapons were tweaked to be generally stronger, but they also have much faster attack animations. The spinning two-hit special attack they do will knock off 50-75% of your health with the fanpatch, and they can pull it off with literally a fraction of a second of time to interrupt it.

    Is anyone else having problems checking out? I've purchased several things over the week and it does this every time. I get to the purchase screen and it says i need to agree to the terms of the steam subscriber agrement, but there is no checkbox to acknowlege this, I've opened the agreement, and the only option there is to close the box. I've basically just been reloading the page and hitting purchase until it decided to work, but today it wont let me check out.

    Freedom Force + 3rd Reich
    Just Cause 2 + DLC
    PB Winterbottom
    Red Faction guerrilla
    Thief

    normal sales:
    Chrome + specforce
    Cryostasis

    I think I only spent about $60... and half of that was for JC2. Yay thriftiness. Passed on a lot of things becuase I refused to dip into the credit i literally just paid off during the sale on principle and I had to pass on the witcher. I know it'll be on sale again and with my backlog i wouldn't even get to it till the christmas sale anyway

    So I mistakenly thought that Metro 2033 was in the Square Enix/Eidos bundle. Without it being there, $75 is just a bit too steep for the games I actually want from that bundle.

    I thought general consensus was that if you played at console resolution then it was alright but the instant you try to turn it up the system requirements just start ballooning out of control... so it's alright if you only want to play at default is the way i understand that, but it's a PC game so why the hell would we ever want to leave the resolution down?

    How is the Defense Grid DLC? I've heard it's notably more difficult than the base game, which for me is not an incentive.

    I think I've already golded all of the Resurgence DLC. Maybe not the last map, which is actually pretty tough. I thought they were good additions to the game actually - some of them are a little more difficult than the base game, but not outrageously so.

    edit: It was nice to have at least one map where just building upgraded gun towers wouldn't be enough to survive.
