    Isn't the price for L4D2 when bought in a 4 pack less than the cost of the DLC on the 360 version?

    Is there any way to see what games I've bought/been gifted recently? I had to proxy buy through a friend due to some paypal issues and I've already forgotten half of what I got.

    Account settings, top right hand corner, by minimize

    Dankeshen!

    Let's see...

    Just Cause 2 + DLC Fullpack
    Saints Row 2
    Beat Hazard
    X-Com Complete Pack
    Tales of Monkey Island Complete Pack
    Serious Sam HD Pack
    Grand Theft Auto: Episode from Liberty City
    Introversion Pack

    Not too bad... I'll calculate prices later, since half of them were gifted.

    They're still planning on bringing L4D2 to the mac with steamplay? I'm tempted to buy it, but I probably won't play it much at all on my fiance's PC, but I'd probably play a ton when I can on my mac.

    BTW, for those who just bought Thief3:

    Make sure that you install the Widescreen Mod and the FOV mod here (though I can't figure out how to get T3Tweak to work with Steam) and John P.'s high res texture pack here.

    All this talk of people buying commando's makes me want to make a thread about it, and all it's glory.

    Probably one of my top 10 Coop games.

    Nobody buy Commandos on Steam. Buy it on GOG so it works. This is very important.

    All valve games will eventually get mac compatibility, for sures.

    Argh! Not only has my console backlog gotten huge (thanks to WoW and multiplayer shooters) now my PC back log is growing as well? Damn you steam! Your all a bunch of pirates! You got the loot Gabe! (Pirates of Silicon Valley)

    Summer Sale damage:

    Bad Company 2 (Double dipped at that due to 360 version... many many hours of play though)
    Dark Void Zero (Gettin my Retro on)
    Lead and Gold (hell of a lot of fun)
    L4D2 (I already had the 1st one I couldn't resist I'm WEAK)
    PB Winterbottom (I hear this is great)
    RE5 (Never been a huge fan of the series so I'm a little lost on the story)
    Trine ($4 and it looks amazing)
    Tales of Monkey Island Pack (thought about getting the Uber pack with all the Sam and Max games but I resisted due to backlog and the fact that Pirates > Rabbits)

    This is why I love steam though. For the price of one brand new console game I got a haul of great pc games. Only minor annoyance is the servers are being flooded right now and I can't seem to install my latest game.

    Sales bounty boils down to:
    Serious Sam HD Double Pack - $7.50
    The Guild II: Pirates of the European Seas - $3.75
    All the Just Cause 2 DLC - $4.43
    Dawn of Discovery Gold - $20.09
    Mount & Blade: Warband - $14.99
    Introversion Complete Pack - $5.00

    Comes out to $55.76. Wish Ubisoft had more than a 33% discount so I could fit Trackmania somewhere in there.

    I would like to again highly recommend Men of War. Even though the name sounds generic and the voice-overs in the game are shit, its really an incredible game. I liked it so much that I bought it as gifts for three of my friends. Its only $4!! Get it quickly!

    Cryostasis is a must have for everybody at £2.49. The Max Payne bundle is also at that price and Thief 3 is around the "4 mark I believe. Also look into the Chrome pack. I picked it up and despite not having checked it out yet, lots of people have been posting about how incredible it is for a such a cheap shooter.

    Ultimately, if you get one more thing make it the Penumbra pack. Really atmospheric and scary and the control scheme is fantastically clever.

    I think it's more a case of GOG.com updating the games to run better with newer OS'. I've yet to hear of people having trouble on steam though.

    edit: checked the forums and apparently you just have to set the .exe's to XP compatibility and all is good.

    Introversion Complete Pack - Summer 2010 - cheap, several games, if I enjoy one of them it's worth it.

    Jagged Alliance 2 / Disciples II Gold Combo - wanted since christmas, I'm not waiting anymore for a lower price, and $10.xx is pretty good anyway. hope these games live up to my excitement.

    King's Bounty: Gold Edition - the price swayed me on this as well as the G&T thread. I keep thinking to myself that I want a strategy game and somehow overlook this genre and think about rts and something like civ where as I much prefer something like a srpg.

    The Void (ND) - already started this, loving it. It was my big regret from the christmas sale, not jumping on it, so I made up for that!

    Zeno Clash - I don't even remember buying this. I probably saw some positive posts (I hope) and just went for it

    Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000 - honestly just to have

    Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition - owned and played it way back, haven't had the disc for years and the price was amazing.

    Fortix - 100% blind buy, just wanted something dumb/simple to play. this was a little simpler than I thought I was getting but I can't really call it bad... sort of pointless but it's small and basic so it has its place.

    My list (small though it may be):

    -Ghost Master: Great game, especially for a freaking $1
    -Aliens vs Predator Classic: Bought this due to the cheap price. What little I've played (Marine campaign) I haven't liked mainly because I'm completely lost the whole time and can't see anything without using night vision. Maybe the Alien and Predator campaigns are better?
    -Audiosurf: Actually amazed at how good this game is. Best $2.50 I've ever spent :P
    -X-COM Complete Pack: Already had the first one but I really wanted to get Terror from the Deep. Figured for an extra buck I might as well get all of them (besides I was vaguely curious about Apocolypse). Amazingly it feels weird because my other copy runs slightly fast during the battles, and this doesn't. Now I can't get used to the slow speed :D Also, I hate sprite smoothing. Don't know why everyone insists on using it in their emulation software. Had to go in and edit the DOSbox config files to turn that garbage off. Why is everyone afraid of pixels? Pixels never hurt you!

    And that's it. The Witcher would have been on that list if the company wasn't a bunch of jerks who forced Valve to unexpectedly raise the price :( Ah well, it will be on sale again I'm sure. A few of the other titles were good deals but I already had the games!

    I booted up Gothic 2, went to walk to the top of the tower you start in and it just turned into a total slideshow.

    I'm not sure if it's because of the fire from the torches or all the trees below it was trying to render.

    There's an issue with Gothic 2 and nvidia cards running in Win7 (and likely Vista) where any outdoor area becomes a slideshow and then crashes the game. This post has step-by-step instructions for a workaround. Unfortunately, the link in step 3 is busted; use the link in this post instead.

    Hope this helps.

    I am very late with this, but thank you so much. I will test this out immediately.

    Here we have a bandwidth cap of 30gb upload/download per month combined, but busting that limit can only cost up to $50 extra per month. And we're past that.

    So I'm downloading:
    Left 4 Dead 2
    Civilisation IV and all of its expansions
    Trine
    Defense Grid
    Sacraboar
    King's Bounty

    I actually got the Left4Dead 2 four pack so I can invite friends over and have a zombie evening.

    And then stuff that I already had but didn't download on this computer yet, such as a Windows 7 ISO from my university and Titan Quest. Just because I can.
