Ha the steam page has crashed with all the activity. Not much there that interests me, I think I am going to stop buying games just because they are a "deal" and stick to buying games that actually interest me.

Edit - I don't usually do this but I have to love the moron that disagreed with me. I wonder which part of my statement did they disagree with ? Was it the bit where I said that "none of these games interest ME" or was it the fact I said "I am going to be a bit more careful with MY money and only buy games that interest ME" ?

I hear ya, but their damn specials always appeal to the digital packrat inside of me. The cash practically leaps out.
mcgrawgamer  +   2057d ago
@ charmers I don't disagree with your statement but to add to it. Like you I too am a little more cautious with my money. But I love these types of steam deals. For me it's just like buying a used game for the 360 or ps3 only this way the initial investment isn't bad 4 bucks compared to 20 bucks at gamestop and if you miss the 7 day turnaround at gamestop the same game will trade in for what 3 bucks?

From personal experience zeno clash, the stalker series, chains, torchlight, defense grid, overlord, fuel, and world of goo are a few examples of games I most likely would have overlooked this generation had it not been for the great deals that steam provided. Thank God I've yet to make a bad purchase on steam but if I do and it'll happen eventually the investment of 15 bucks or less will be a much easier pill to swallow than 20+ for a used game at gamestop

I'll keep an eye on this. I could do with Left 4 Dead 2. I'm sure they'll put it up at some point.
Checkmate  +   2057d ago

And Garry's Mod. I only currently have the free one before Garry was bought up by Valve.

Steam is awesome.

Does anyone know if Borderlands is any good as £14.99 is quiet a deal
jagstatboy  +   2057d ago
HELLS YES!!!!
killyourfm  +   2057d ago
I easily sank 60+ hours into Borderlands. It becomes 2x awesome with another buddy co-op. Also recommended is all the DLC *EXCEPT* Mad Moxxie.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Now I just have to get paid, unfortunately thats not until 30. June ):
DirtyLary  +   2057d ago
:( Fallout GOTY isn't part of the sale.
Charmers  +   2057d ago
That is probably down to the fact it was on sale two weeks ago. Historically if a game has been in a previous sale it doesn't get featured in any new sale for a while, if you see what I mean.
Vip3r  +   2057d ago
I've bought so many games on Steam in their sales. Countless good deals and not enough money to buy them. :(
mcgrawgamer  +   2057d ago
that bioshock 2 deal is calling my name along with quite a few others.
andyboy13  +   2057d ago
