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.


Fine on my ipad...

I'm skipping this sale. I realised the other day that of all the games I've bought in steam sales over the past couple of years, I've only played about 30% of them. So I'm currently banning myself from buying any games until I've played most of the games I've bought in previous sales. By then the next Steam sale will be only weeks away, and the games I'm looking at today (Hitman mainly) will probably be in the sale again. :)

Here's an interesting quirk:
  • STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl - £4.99
  • STALKER: Call of Pripyat - £3.24
  • STALKER Bundle (containing both games) - £11.49
Lulwut?

Same here. I was thinking about Borderlands 2 at 50% off but i'll never get around to it any time soon. Hopefully by Summer or even next Christmas it will be 75% off.

another yawn day. Dishonored sounds fun, but not for $30.

Have not bought anything on steam yet but I got Max Payne 3 on Amazon. I don't see Steam beating $15. Thinking about getting Hitman as well.

I'm surprised that I haven't found anything worth getting so far, normally there's at least a few games I'd want.

Same here. But I actually bought a few during the Thanksgiving sale. I see Origin has Mass Effect 3 for $15, that will probably be my only purchase this holiday.

I actually just bought Psychonauts on a whim so that invalidates my previous statement.

A lot of these sales are repeats. That is fine, it gives others a chance to grab stuff they may have missed out on last time.
