    Yeah.

    Must be hard to copy the deal, and just change the one title for us. I mean is it really that much harder than having another copy for us too?

    Better plan.

    Take all the SCAGS out back with a shotgun and lets get some consensus rolling.

    I'm in NZ and I can see the Valve pack, mind you, I have most of the games already

    I can't see the Rockstar pack they have in the UK - I guess you Aussies can't either?

    I got the Bit.Trip and Lead and Gold ones - the AAaAAAA and Toki Tori ones might not be quite so easy tho

    Well it took me until 11pm, but I have now had 5 tickets on the first day.

    Had to take a break from Aaaaa but I came back and finished it off after just a few more tries (but heaps all up including before). Bit Trip wasn't bad and toki tori was quite time consuming. Swords & soldiers wasn't very hard though and joining the groups a gimmie. :)

    Unfortunately the Steampunk DLC for Killing Floor that I've "redeemed" isn't actually installing. I guess when it does release maybe? Shrug. Thought i'd get it earlier than the store release but oh well.

    Oh and my main complaint about all this is that it does take a LOT of time to get some of these things done. Lucky for me its time I had available but for ppl doing a lot of work / schooling this would be a real pita.

    did the lead and gold and the toki tori just tonight. redeemed the Homefront maps with my spoils. The toki tori is only about 20mins effort. There is a thread in the steam forums showing you what to concentrate on and how to do the challenge. once you do all the normal maps all the way through (you can wildcard/skip one) you can then just choose the hard maps you needs and you only have to reach the sunbeams you dont have to finish the entire map.

    was a bit of fun for the night - different to just playing BC2 for the night:D

    I bought the kids toki tori last year on their steam account and they love it. My now 5yr old son calls them ponti pines ;)

    DOW2 was relatively easy, I started a new campaign on easy mode (picked orcs) spawned lots of boyz mobs upgraded them to burners, took a couple of missions to get the achievement tho. There might be better ways of doing it.

    Have to say picked up Toki Tori yesterday, great little platform puzzler.

    Just got an update to universe sandbox, looks like a new achievement "Heat Wave" crash the earth into the sun. So I'm guessing that's one for a couple of days time.

    Also Spacechem is on special today, awesome puzzle game, think they had a decent size demo too.

    I just grabbed Spacechem, Braid, Frozen Synapse and Magicka.

    I picked up Just Cause 2 also, which I don't think is really my style but for $5 I figured I couldn't go too wrong!

    Now I just need to play the games from the Christmas sale, so I can move onto these ones!

    Yeah Toki Tori was nice, some of them were tough. I didn't use guides to get through though so thats why it took me so long! XD

    Picked up the 2K pack this morning. Only game in there I already had was the original Bioshock. Also got Magika pack (for my lad).

    BattleField Bad Company 2 is only US$5 at the moment (or buy the pack with Vietnam and Specact kit for US$9.99).

    Doh, just bought the 4 pack of Magicka a few days ago, now its only $10! Anyway, sweet deal for an awesome game. I suggest Terraria as well, its about $7.50 and very much well worth it.

    There's no separate download (and Steam were late putting it up for sale on their store), it's just part of the latest patches for the game. As long as your game is patched, then you should have access to the new characters. Has worked for a few of us already. :)

    Yep it came up a day or so later after a couple patches.

    Incidentally, now people can't connect to each other anymore so we've had to shelve it. XD

    Wait - we still talking about KF? Do you mean you're having troubles with someone running a listen server (it's been working for our group - though we mainly use a private dedicated server) or something else?
