Time to give Valve all my money again... Valve pack is an awesome deal atm for £25, includes Portal 2 http://store.steampowered.c... No excuse not to get if you don't own any of the games :D
Half Life 2 Deathmatch is the price of FREE :D http://www.hl2dm-university...
To anyone who owns the Valve compete pack, it is worth it? Because I don't want to get stuck with a bunch of extra games I'll nver play.
it really depends if you like source games, although it includes portal 2 which is $49.99 by itself so I think it's worth it unfortunately I have most of the games in it so it't not worth it to me, you may want to wait for daily deals though to see if the thing you really want in it go's on sale for really cheap. that's what happened during the Christmas sales
It's worth it for TF2 alone. Oh wait. The Valve pack is THE best deal assuming you don't already own most of the games.
This is crazy. I just bought Hydrophobia for $3 the other day and now they have the latest Medal of Honor for $10. I just can't catch up.
it's a hell of a mess as of now
Pretty sure they're getting the sale splash screen ready, Steam always goes bonkers leading up to the sale.
yeah its not completly up yet. valve complete for 49$ though
Site is all messed up.
"Damn you Steam!!!" ~my wallet
I was just complaining about Steam's sales to my brother the other day, I now have too many games and not enough time! Damn you Steam and your deal giving ways! Damn You.
Damn. That figures, my gaming computer's video card went all to hell about a month ago. I'm starting to get TF2 and DOD: Source withdraws.....
F**ck paying rent! Steam sales ftw!!
Yeah paying rent is over-rated. Just find yourself a nice steam tunnel near a wireless hotspot.
Skintage Maximus Not gonna be looking on Steam until the sale is over, spent all my money fixing up my Land Rover... FML - Why did I just look... So many delicious deals, £5.10 for Oblivion GOTY... CRYMOAR
Buying Borderlands, Witcher 2, TDU 2 :D And its only the first day....damnnn
Just bought the witcher 2 last week :( Don't buy TDU2, its crap.
I know. I just wanna play it with friends
The Servers aren't working................
I never player Oblivion actually. Shame on me :( But now I can get the digital deluxe edition for a very cheap price :D And also got TDU 2 today ^^ all for 13.49 euros :)
Be sure to check out the mods. There's a very large number of them.
I've been trying to find some good ones, you have any tips? :)
Oh, lets see... If you can manage the learning curve for it, the Oblivion Mod Manager is a handy tool to, well, manage the mods. It can be used for loading order (which can make a big difference in functionality). I really liked Deadly Reflexes, but I recall it took a bit of tinkering to make it work. It added a little more depth to combat as well as a stealth kill for sleeping opponents. This was a big deal to me, since Oblivion has that thing where if you stab a sleeping guy, he wakes up without being dead, and suddenly guards are swarming all around. Speaking of guards, I also really liked Reneer's Guard Overhaul. It made the guard AI a little less stupidly omniscient about everything you do. If you're planning on doing any magey-type things, the Midas Spell mod adds a pile of new spells. Unique Landscapes and Qarl's Texture Pack add a little more prettiness to everything. I liked the Darnified UI because it cleaned up the menu interface a bit as well. I couldn't get Better Cities to work, and from what I understand that's not at all unusual (supposedly over-complicated) There's a huge pile of giant mods which alter the monster leveling issues. Oblivion suffers from scaled leveling of enemies, which means at high levels you'll be squaring off against glass armor and legendary weapon-toting bandits who by all rights should be raiding cities. Of those mods, I didn't care for Oscuro's as much. It changed the pace at which your character earns skill levels (slowed it down to 1/2 or even a 1/4 if I recall correctly). I personally found it to be far too slow. Francesco's was a lot more balanced and came with a high level of customization. It didn't pack quite as much content as Oscuro's, but I found it a little less obtuse. There's also Martigen's Monster Mod, which I haven't tried but looks interesting. Here's a good resource: http://www.pcgamer.com/2010... This list is pretty much where I started looking. There was also a companion mod (adds an NPC follower to help you out) which was made in part and voiced by Terry Pratchet, which is kind of neat. I don't recall what it's called, but a quick google search should reveal something. Searching toplists and people's favorites is a good way to find what you're looking for. It all really depends upon how you feel about the basic game and what little things you think could use a tweak.
Aww...I'm not seeing any $5 indy-game packs...
got witcher 2. :)
I think this image speaks for all of us.
Honestly at this point I think it would save time to just add Valve to my paycheck direct deposit. I mean really what is the point of the money coming to me first if Valve is just going to take it all? Might as well cut out the middle man.
