I like how Scribblenauts is in the sale but in the UK, you can't buy it yet :laugh:
Hitman Absolution with 50% off is pretty good.

If anyone needs another guy for a four-pack buy of Natural Selection 2; I'm up for it. It's on 60% off now (7.5 bucks a copy).

Hoping Hotline Miami goes on sale even more, will definitely pick it up if it does.
To bad Far Cry 3 was not part of the Ubisoft bundle either, if it was, would have strongly considered picking it up since AC III is also in there as well.

Recommended tip for the sale period: Go to http://www.steamgamesales.com/ and then unselect every digital store except Steam from the list and order by savings.

Some nice hidden sales there.

I had to End Process as it lagged it so bad. Great idea, awful execution. Do not load the entire damn database on one page. And if it turns out they were not (I never did get to see it in action) then it is horribly coded. Really good idea for a site, as I said, horrible execution.

Probably system related and not the site. Loads silky smooth over here without any issues on Firefox 17.0.1, even with some crap running in the background.
