Steam Holiday Sale

Recommended Posts

So do you guys think Silent Hill: Homecoming is worth $10? I've never played any of the other games, but apparently it's a quasi-reboot or something.

Definitely getting Jade Empire though.

If you've never played any of the others, I'd recommend skipping it. I only played through it because I'm a fan of the series and it wasn't very good. You can spend that $10 on a PC copy of SH2, though - that'd be a good investment.

I wish the duplicate game gifting worked for all Steam games instead of just select few. I know it's like this to prevent people from abusing the system, but it kinda sucks for those of us who don't plan on abuse. :|

Mirrors Edge is pissing me off. I can go all the way through some eleborate jump/kick/flip/roll/ninja wall running Matrix shit, but then I get stopped dead by a jump across something.

The game seems designed to punish you for not completing simple jumps. I once tried to make a jump over twenty times, all because my timing wasn't so fucking perfect that I could make the necessary combo. In the end, I just walked around until I found something to walk across.

Repeat for almost every level.

And the ones where you have to outrun a bunch of cops are frustrating as hell. There's one part where I have to run along a wall over a pit, and when I start to fall, i have to jump to the ledge... except that I barely make it every time, and then waste four seconds getting up. This gives both the cops behind me and the one coming towards me enough time to beat me into the floor.

I can see what the game was going for, but parts of it just seem like they did no play testing outside of their own little group of people that had been playing it from the beginning. Only after hours and hours of practice can you really pull that shit off.

Definitely not a forgiving game for first-time players.

Booya new sale. I got the max payne bundle for 3.49. But if you don't have osmos, get it, worth 2 bucks.

Bought both of those, as well as the complete Civ 4 pack. I was going to just get Colonization, until I realized that the adding on the other three was like $3.40 more.

Also, I did decide to get Jade Empire, mostly because this is the "Special Edition" and I just had the regular one.

That and STEAM > All.

Yay, due to the special, more newbies will be playing Left 4 Dead on expert. A few days ago I was in an expert game with a guy who didn't know how to turn the flashlight on/off. Oh well, at least the newbs can make the game more exciting.

This end of year sale has taken way too much of my hard earned cash now. I've gone from about 70-80ish games to 129. Why am I paying for games which take up more time, thus resulting in me making less money?

Because games are fun, damnit. And it's great, cheap way to get other people hooked too! RS:V2 for 4.99? DO IT!

Picked up HL:Source and Shattered Horizon (now that I have Windows 7 :DDD).

I just hope someone lets me use their iPhone at MAGFest or something, because it would suck to miss the last few days of deals.

Did you see the incorrect ones? For about 20 minutes, the deals weren't updated. You could buy Crysis for $40, wow what a deal!

That said, there's not a lot here that interests me. I bought Shattered Horizons for $20 a month ago and now feel like a doofus.

I'm still waiting on some more RPG deals like Mass Effect and Elder Scrolls.

I went ahead and bought Osmos and Left 4 Dead this morning, and was kind of sad when I saw the deals.

And then I came back here and saw that they had been incorrect deals.

:shock:

Now they look frickin' awesome.

EDIT: I also just realized the Max Payne Bundle is back at regular price... Darn it...

Ya, I've been expecting the deals to get better as the sale comes to an end. To convince people who've already bought a ton to buy just a bit more.

I think I'll pick up Half-Life and maybe Shattered Horizon today.

Man... as soon as I get my new CC number, I'm downloading the Jedi Knight Collection. Pretty much one of my favorite series ever.

You guys should buy it too and come play online with me.

Somewhat surprised no one else has posted here today about the deals...

Anyways, there are still some really good ones going on. Me, I went ahead and bought Mass Effect and the complete Sam & Max collection. All for the price of a Greatest Hits PC game.

Steam, I am so coming back next year. :-P
