    I did, always wanted to check it out, but could never bring myself to spend the dough. But 5 bucks! Cheap at twice the price!

    Today
    You now own Red Faction: Guerrilla .

    Dec 25
    You now own Left 4 Dead 2.

    Dec 24
    You now own Machinarium.
    You now own The Void.
    You now own Far Cry 2, Far Cry 2: Fortunes Pack.
    You now own Splintercell: Chaos Theory.
    You now own Atari 80 Classic Games in One. (anyone been able to get this to work on a vista machine?)
    You now own Sid Meier's Civilization IV, Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Warlords, Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword, Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization.
    You now own Silent Hunter III.
    You now own Killing Floor, Killing Floor SDK, Killing Floor Mod: Defence Alliance 2.

    Bought Bioshock for a mate as well.

    Now, just when do I expect I will find the time to play these? How many of them will I actually end up downloading (especially given I'm at my limit for this month?). At least I pre-loaded Killing Floor from when it was on a free weekend, so I can give it a go. And I played a bit of The Void last night until I got too confused. Very confused actually.

    Not working for me on vista, steam forums suggest it doesn't work for many people.

    Refund requested. Waiting.

    Stalker, Stalker clear sky, Chronicles of Riddick, X3 Terran Conflict, and that lot just cost me a piddling US$23.26 (which will be under $30 at the current exchange rate)

    Have to resist... have to resist....

    Oh and at least for me I can grab a lot of the content of the 3FL steam server unmeetered.

    What is this TAGES thing on Riddick? I know it is some form of DRM, but is it a pain? Will I notice it?
