Just pulled the trigger on Assetto Corsa.  I bought into Project Cars, which has insane graphics, so I'm curious how this one compares.

Seems like they're adding new cars and tracks every 2 weeks, so it should be fun to drive something new constantly.

 

The G27 wheel is looking really tempting now (as my bank account begs for mercy). :)

Is arkham origins at 24 dollars worth it?

 

You can get it for $20 from www.greenmangaming.com. You will receive a Steam key. :D

Just picked up Monaco and The Stanley Parable.

More games to go on the pile of games i probably will never play.

 

Haha same here, bought loads lately and haven't touched them.

 

Is Dead Island worth it?

If you got friends to play co-op with, i'd say it is definitely worth it.

Single player is still good but does drag on a bit towards the last third of the game.

 

For a fiver i'd say risk it.

Haha, no doubt!  I'm looking around the store but haven't pulled my trigger on anything yet.  I keep thinking I need to play all the games I currently have from all the previous sells for years now...lol... oh well.

 

Is Castlevania Lord of Shadows any good?  A nice gothic game looks fun, and I loved the ones for the DS but the videos don't look very convincing.

 

I'm tempted to get Oblivion, but that will mean its the 3rd time I bought that game.  Bought it when it came out for the PC, my PC sucked at playing it at the time.  Bought it for the XBox 360, and couldn't really get into it.  Sold both of those copies on Amazon at some point.  I really fell in love with Skyrim though and wonder if that experience will make me appreciate Oblivion more (or will it just seem more dated and crappy).

Bought the Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas DLC for borderlands 2 for 99p each, I doubt I'll buy any more at this rate.. Things I want are fairly new so wont be cheap and the rest I got in previous sales :(

I really, really like Lords of Shadow. Sure it is just a beat em up like God of War, so if you're not a fan of them. You probably won't get on with it.

It looks amazing and on PC it is 60fps. Plus it will get you ready for LoS 2 which is out next year... which is shaping up to be brilliant. Going to be more open like a traditional Castlevania.

 

Oblivion is good but if you couldn't get on with it before. I don't think Skyrim will make you appreciate it more. For how cheap it is though, might be worth a risk.

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.

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

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

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