Just gonna give the grand prize giveaway a shot, even if I have approximately zero chance of winning. Or, uh, I could send a bunch of postcards and win stuff that way?

got: Bit Trip Runner, the Borderlands pack, Recettear, The Longest Journey, Winter Voices: Avalanche, the Stronghold Collection, and the Cyan Complete Pack (Myst games and other stuff)


I'm going to be watching in case if New Vegas and Cargo: the Quest for Gravity go on sale.

I wish they would finally work out a way to get more of the old Interplay games on steam.  I'd buy them all again.

I spent $100 or very nearly $100 over the last holidays and still haven't played half of the games I got. I don't imagine I'll spend quite as much on this sale simply because there aren't that many games left I'm dying to play, but it's still just going to complicate things even worse. I already picked up KotOR, which I skipped last go-around.

I did buy Solar 2 just now but would have gotten it way earlier if I knew it involved space raves. That's certainly worth mentioning to those who are on the fence about it.

I really like the massive scale of this game. Billions of years pass in minutes. Interstellar wars are waged because my solar system drifted too close to someone else's. A highly evolved spacefaring race is obliterated because their planet collapsed into a star. Even when an alien civilization is caught in the orbit of a foreign star with life already orbiting it, they have to make peace or they'll be waging wars for eternity.

And all we see happening is rocks bashing together. If there is ever arguing that an eventual ubiquitous deity has a reason to care about what happens to individual lifeforms on individual planets, this game is a pretty good illustration of, well, that there isn't one.

My response so far to the sales have been surprisingly subdued

It's a combination of having very little money in my debit card and not really being incredibly interested in buying any of the things offered (due to having a huge backlog of steam games to play through already)

at twice the price six months ago

You can try it. It's not terrible really but it's a very different game from the first and 3rd. I personally wouldn't purchase it, but I suggest playing it at some point to see a good example of how to make a decent game and a shit terrible sequel.

STALKER is a definite Yes if you like the idea of an open-world FPS-RPG. You should look into getting some mods for it before you start, the STALKER Complete overhauls are very popular.

I know that the first STALKER (Shadow of Chernobyl) is a great game all the way through. The later ones looks pretty much the same, so I say go for it. The complete mods gives the game better textures and AI, so I recommend them a lot.

Also, bind the medpacks to middle mouse button, will make the game so much easier.

New sales! The Quake franchise is discounted to a point where you would expect it to be based on its age. I tried playing the shareware version of Quake 1 but hadn't had much success, so maybe I'll buy it here for a thaler. There's also Counterstrike: source; not sure if that game even gets bought nowadays.

I thought I received CS:S along with the Orange Box but now it's not listed anymore. Strange. I do remember playing it at some point and getting headshot within the first five seconds of a game.

It still raises the question whether or not anyone buys Counterstrike for the sake of Counterstrike.

also i just bought Deus Ex and Thief: Deadly Shadows. pretty psyched.


has anyone here played Deadly Shadows? I bought it on impulse because I thought it was Thief: The Dark Project, which was one of my favorite games as a kid, only to realize that it's not actually the same game.

fingers crossed on that one  :-P

I played it for a bit, but without nostalgia for the old Thief games, it was a bit too old. Still a good game, though - the missions were interesting, and it's one of the few genuine stealth experiences I've had. The mechanics with some steampunk/magic elements added to the mix is great (like water arrows to put out torches). The only thing that bothered me was that you were supposed to traverse the city between each mission, which didn't really work too well, as it was kinda hard to get around and distracted you from the main stealth gameplay. I'd still recommend it to people who wants to try something different. Just don't try to get 100% the first time around.

Played the training mission on my lunch break; it's definitely pretty different from The Dark Project, but the core concepts are the same. The bow-aiming animation is weird; the old one was much better, I think. And strafing feels super clunky and awkward, though that could have been in the TDP too, it's been a long time since I've played it.

Looking forward to doing some more lurking, robbing, and blackjacking skulls later.

I also found my old TDP disc, which I thought I had lost, but I can't install it on my fancy new computer.

Is it too old for compatibility mode to work?

So I was playing Solar 2 some more and I'll tell you that dark matter mode is suicidal fun, with black holes fucking everyone's shit up. It shows that the universe is actually pretty hardcore. But I was thinking 'what a shame that the physics in this game aren't proportional to reality, that would make it more interesting' then lo and behold, Universe Sandbox goes on sale. I think I had my fill with Solar though.
