Have only bought 3 things.  Torchlight 2 at 50% off (10$), Witcher 2 75% off (5$), and Just Cause 2 88% off (3$).   So I have gotten ~50$ worth of games for 18$.  I've given myself a 30$ limit on what I will spend.  However so far there hasn't been anything in my price range I really want.

I can do that too.

Seems like you are getting a way better deal, £18 = $27.12, instead, those of us using USD have to pay almost $9 more on Steam, but that's a better deal than Amazon for us, it's $39.99 USD, but only £15 (which is $22.64......a cost of $17 as opposed to the $9 increase on steam).

 

I wasn't doubting your claim, I was simply stating that in USD, Steam is the better deal than Amazon (especially because Amazon has a shipping cost, Steam does not...and that wasn't factored into the above).

errr, wanted that, but it'll have to wait for the Winter sale. I hear it's an incredible time-sink, and I'm already addicted to Don't Starve and FTL.

 

I played the demo and i could see myself spending a lot of time on it.

I've already spent many hours in Don't Starve. Most of them spent huddled round a fire, trying to survive the night

I bought so far

 

New vegas for 4.79$

Tomb Raider for 12.49$

Xcom for 9.99$

Dishonored 10$

 

So 37.27 for 4 games not bad (and 0.40 in my wallet for selling cards). I'm done unless Bioshock Infinite or Metro: Last Light get close to 20$ which will not happen. I'll buy Infinite and Last Light next sale along with Shadowrun Returns. I have more than enough games to play until next sale with those games.

Dead island riptide is tomorrow's daily deal. And Alan wake for $3 is great deal and the collectors edition for $3.50 or the franchise for $4.00. 

 

Bioshock infinite, deus ex GOTY, deus ex HR, deus ex Missing link, deus ex invisible war, Euro Truck 2, Frozen Synapse (bought 2), Guns of Icarus, Metro Last Light (.01!!!!), Nuclear Dawn, Sid 5 (gold edition), torchligh 2, Unvierse sandbox, tropico 4, mcPixel.

 

That's everything I've picked up so far this sale, when selling cards on the market comes out to be roughly $80. Which I think is fantastic.

 

Should be noted I move in the next few days going from a 25mbs connection to 5mbs. So I've been buying and installing more than I usually would to have a nice backlog of games to play without needing to download them.

Nice, Mark of the Ninja for cheap......only 1 more game that I plan to pick up (another indie game) when it goes on sale, so my spending is virtually done unless they have some crazy awesome deal on something I am on the fence about.....I skipped a few titles in my wishlist to save money and looking back I'm glad I did as they don't really appeal to me much now beyond maybe playing it for a few days.

^ I don't think so. I don't remember any of that crap in my play through. For 2.99 it is a steal.


Folks, if you done own Mark of the Ninja, I would highly recommend it, but perhaps only if you have a controller. KB controls are a bit..meh.

Gonna buy it then.

I'm afraid Microsoft might give it on XBox Live later this year but since it's only 2.99 and the used xbox 360 version is still 20$ on amazon.ca i wont take any chance. It fully supports the controller anyway so i'm gonna play it using my 360 controller. I'm done with the 360 anyway games look so much better on my PC in true 1080p i start laughing everytime i read someone saying next gen consoles gfx upgrade wont worth it. Might even sell it for a PS3 to play Last of Us soon anyway.

[edit] just did some research and it's a steamwork game even if it is published by Microsoft.

How is Mark of the ninja ? Is it good for someone who kinda hate stealth action games ?

Considering how big that game is, $2.50 is a steal :p

Mark of the Ninja has a good pace, tight controls (with a controller), a cool art style (imo). Its not slow and tedious like some stealth games can be. It is cheap so even if you don't like it, you're not losing all that much. I highly recommend it :)

Well, Mark of the Ninja did win a few GotY awards last year. And was in quite a few top 10s from around the webs. Really good game. And I HATE stealth games. But the mechanics and way the game is laid out is pretty darn good.

Not as much damage so far as in previous years. Picked up:

  • FTL
  • The Walking Dead
  • Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall
  • World of Goo

Just $14.61 spent so far, although if a few of my Wishlist items go on sale then it'll surely rise
