Haven't bought anything from this sale thus far.   Mind you I have more than enough games thanks to the humble bundles.

I'll give LoS a try then.  I'm looking for a nice controller mind numbing action game for the PC at the moment.  I was afraid it was overly RPGish...

 

When was the last good arcade style space shooter?

 

I tried Zeit2 and wasn't very impressed.

have you tried Jamestown? Its crazy fun and hard at the same time with friends using a controller. Reminds me of the Ikaruga days on G.Cube :D

Bought Reus yesterday, and so far it's interesting. Haven't bought anything else for myself. Bought Audiosurf 2 and Sir You Are Being Hunted for a friend. I'm waiting on scoring Condemned, Bit Trip pack, and Race the Sun. Waiting for slightly better prices

I plan to buy Dear Ester and Gone Home if they come at 75% or less.

 

BTW is Amnesia and the sequel any good ?

If you like Dear Ester, then I think it is safe to say you will like the two Amnesia games.

Damn, might have to pick up System Shock 2 at that price. Last time I tried to play it was years ago and I remember needing major workarounds, so I am assuming it runs no issues now. Can anyone confirm?
EDIT - Purchased. Can now play it on a Mac as well? Yeah, done deal there.

 

Did Papers Please go on sale yet does anyone know? That is what I am waiting for myself.

EDIT 2 - Also purchased Contagion. Looks decent, and the price was definitely right.

 

I want to beef up my Steam library as I am not 100% sure, but think I am getting a Nvidia SHIELD tomorrow for XMas. Either that or a 3DS, so at those prices, why not.

And I see Papers Please is on sale, but going to wait and see if it really goes on sale.

Tried to buy something off steam today. As soon as I press buy for myself, I get an error.

It's been a few hours now, still doesn't work, this is ridiculous.

 

They are losing lots of sales

I highly doubt they just went and said to their IT: "Hey, limit the bandwidth for these servers for a bit so people have a hard time buying stuff and whatnot". They'll get it fixed up when they're able to, until then.. patience!

Yes but it happens every time ! Last year, the year before .... And the year before that.

 

The download servers are supposed to be separate from the store. At least they could introduce a queue system or something, to limit the traffic when everyone is clicking the buy button at the same time

Yeah good price, but I won't put that DRM on any of my systems.  So, again, you have lost a sale ;)

 

Uplay is fine. It doesn't run in the background (well it does when you are playing something lol) once you close it, and it's stable and runs fine. The integrated features it has and UI are basically Steam with a Ubisoft spin. So I don't see any problem with Uplay anymore.

Remember to use the resolution mod and the other fixes that are out there. Otherwise, meh. :D

Yeah i finally got to re-install uplay yesterday when i bought Might and Magic Heroes VI. I had problems in the past with uplay but this time it was smooth. From what i can tell uplay doesn't install any hidden device drivers and doesn't run any service in the background when you are not playing a game and close it. It looks like there's an offline mode did not try it tough. My 2 complains about uplay is there's no minimize to systray option from what i can tell and the achievements are uplay only even when bought thru steam. If you got to sell your games on steam do it properly the achievements should be unlocked in both uplay and steam.

I don't like Uplay, but at least I don't hate Ubisoft. Origin? Forget it.
