    I don't have it myself, but last time the question was going around it was around 3.2GB. Hopefully there hasn't been some giant patch making me a stinky liar.

    And since he's not here to ring in the new thread, here's @TychoCelchuuu's inaugural comic edit:

    OK, time to go Christmas shopping (the mall is probably going to be a mass of humanity picked clean by vultures, right? Why did I put this off?) so in case the new thread pops up and gets 80 pages before I get back (quite likely) here is my traditional new thread comic:

    13 objectives completed thus far, and I have 1 free copy of Limbo, 1 50% off a Valve title coupon, 1 25% off Serious Sam 3 coupon, and 1 50% off Capsized coupon. Oh, and 10 pieces of coal. The Capsized coupon would almost be nice, except that the game is 75% off in the holiday sale. So I guess it's for people who can't afford $2.50 now but can afford $5.00 in 1-2 months. Or something.

    You are underwhelming me, holiday sale. Yet I love you anyway for some reason.

    Need to go out and run errands before the wife gets home, but will likely pick up Payday when I get back and try to join some of the PA Payday fans whenever possible. Tomorrow night's my wedding anniversary, so Friday may be my only really free evening until next week sometime.

    Oh man, B:AC for $25 is so tempting, but that will pretty much wipe out my Steam Holiday fund. I was hoping to get the Two Worlds II expansion, SPAZ, and maybe Payday, but really good deal on that.

    I say Warband is the one you're looking for.

    Warband makes the original Mount & Blade obsolete (unless there's some important mod that has yet to be ported over, but at this point I doubt it) and unless you have a huge boner for the historical time period With Fire & Sword is set in, you can safely skip it.

    Nobody wants to be the buyer though. Which sucks. If it's not done by the time i get home i can maybe work something out.

    Got a 50 percent off Hitman Collection coupon and Coal so far today. Coupon ain't shabby since the sale is only 33 percent off, but owning Blood Money already kind of makes it moot. If anyone would use it let me know.

    I've seen SoC on sale for $1 before. I want to believe that my $5 will somehow resurrect STALKER2 and GSC but I wouldn't bite at that price.

    Also guys, if you want a fun city builder? Tropico 4 is hard to beat. It has a campaign mode, which modern builders seem to lack?, and it has a ton of humor. Its not superduper crazy deep (Build a power plant, a certain radius gets power. no building power lines or anything), but it is fun and the politics make it really interesting. You going to help out Europe because they give you a ton of trade money, but the action will piss off America who are not assassinating you?

    Is it a good time for someone looking for a moderately casual Sim City experience?

    I think so? But I havent spent a lot of time with a simcity game in a while. If you tell me what you like about Sim City I can compare it. It definitely is a lot more casual than simcity. It lacks a lot of the super tiny tweaks of simcity like tax rates and also no complex infrastructure (Pretty much just take care of roads).

    The main draw of the game (for me) is you have to keep everyone happy, including other countries. If you piss off major powers like US or Russia, they can invade and replace you. If you piss of countries like Japan, they wont invade you but they can put up trade embargos and things like that. From the interior, you could piss off local faction leaders and spawn a rebellion. If you don't take care of your people's needs, they will be more likely to join factions.

    Oh also a lot of the fun comes from being a dictator. If a rebellion starts? Its very easy to hire your secret police to kill the leaders. You'll lose respect from the faction, but the rebellion will also probably stop. Need more uneducated works to fill up your farms? Announce an edict that bans contraception on the island and open your immigration to anyone!

    So should I buy monday night combat? Its looked cool for a long time but I never pulled the trigger. Also Swords and Soldiers? It looks really racist but people seem to like it

    Either way, Base Game GET I think.

    None of the DLC can be unlocked in the game. However, Robin & Nightwing cannot be used in the main game and can only be used in Challenge Maps. They come with their own costumes, gadgets, and fighting styles though (along with 2 additional challenge maps each).

    Edit: Thanks for answers to all for Payday filesize.

    If you are looking for multi in MNC, I'd stay clear. It's a decent single player game, but the online community is dead as can be really.

    You don't unlock them, and if you like challenge rooms Robin and Nightwing are both worth buying.

    Heh, so even though I already own Defense Grid + all of the DLC except the You Monster DLC on the 360, it would actually be cheaper for me to buy the Defense Grid pack on Steam than it would be to buy You Monster on the 360. :)

    I don't think you can unlock any of the DLC characters in-game without the DLC. They may show up as cameos, but I don't think they're playable.

    The fact that the Batman skin pack that includes the Batman:TAS costume is 50% is the latest in a very long line of reasons I regret not buying Arkham City on Steam.

    Dang, did I miss getting in on a Payday 4-pack?

    My opinions on Stalker:

    Skip Clear Sky unless you want it for completion's sake.

    Shadow of Chernobyl is the first one and it's good, but has annoying stuff that requires mods to fix.

    Call of Pripyat fixes nearly everything that was annoying about the earlier games and is awesome out of the box, and is my favorite.
