Been happy with my haul, just over $60 so far. I have such a small budget for games now days thanks to my mortgage so this should be enough to last me until Christmas.

Warlock - Master of the Arcane
Trine 2
Crusader Kings II - Also to play the Game of Thrones mod
Half-Life 2: Episode Two - Needed so I could try Elevator Source
Frozen Synapse: Red
Tribes Ascend Starter Pack
L.A. Noire
Mount & Blade Napoleonic Wars
Sword of the Stars II
Mirror's Edge
Batman Arkham City
STALKER Call of Pripyat

So far this sale I've picked up:

Anomaly Warzone Earth - A reverse tower defence game, only played it for an hour or so last night but found it heaps of fun.
The Binding of Isaac - Kind of rogue like game. Have only had a glimpse at it. Definitely a very interesting theme.
Cave Story +
Crysis (the pack) - Believe it or not I've never actually played it all these years, jumped in the other night for a quick look see. Very reminiscent of Far Cry of course.
Dead Island
Dear Esther
From Dust - Again only played 20 mins or so to get a feel, but it's a very pretty game and quite unique. Reminds me both of Populous and Black and White, though not necessarily in game play.
L.A Noir
Legend of Grimrock
Metro 2033
Mirrors Edge
NFS: Hot Pursuit
Renegade Ops
Saints Row 3
Shoot Many Robots - Only played the first couple of levels, a side scrolling shooter that doesn't take itself very seriously. Upgrades to buy which adds some depth.
Total War: Shogun 2
Toy Soldiers
Vessel


I'm a sucker for a good Steam sale, now if I just had time to play them, and GW2 wasn't on its way...

Bit of an oddity today with rage, this was like $89 in AU and discounted the other day to $29.99.

Now the $29.99 price is sticking and the discount is 40% down to $17.99.

Didn't want to spend #30 on it as reviews were a bit mixed on this, not bad I guess for $18, wondering if I should pick it up, anyone played it?

I bought that a while ago, and I've really enjoyed it.

On a different note - the current vote involves The Longest Journey at 75% off, I think everyone should vote on that! Chop chop!

Due to a heap of complaints during the sale, they removed the regional pricing on it earlier today. When it was discounted the other day it was only $10 for the US. So I'd hold off, if it gets another flash sale, community vote or encore deal at the end it will probably be $10 for us then.

As for the game itself, I hear it's gameplay is ok, it just had a terrible buggy launch but it's all fixed up now. So probably a decent buy on sale.

Thx, in that case I will hold off, not like I'm that interested in Rage really, but the price was starting to get attractive now and I was thinking that someone at Steam obviously forgot to pull the "ripoff" switch under the AU Region label and they would figure it out soon enough.

Fallout: New Vegas is a daily deal. Ultimate edition is €9.99, is it worth it?
(For the record, I didn't see what the difference between normal and ultimate was...)
