Another day, another purchase from Steam...

One day I'll get time to play these games. Anyway, since 23rd August 2010, I've spent £24.88 on games from Steam and have this collection formed:

Nice man. +1 for having Amnesia: The Dark Descent up there.

PirateThom3240d ago

Finally got to play it today as I made my friend buy it as well (I haven't even had the time to download and play it on my own computer yet) and that game is worth playing for the atmosphere alone. Every corridor was "Aagggh, crap! No!"

I hate how Amnesia doesn't support some Graphics Chips though. The game alone is a reason I would want to update my graphics. Its amazing, I have seen so many walkthroughs and its just terrifying.

BattleAxe3240d ago

Bought Mafia 2 and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood today :)

Dojan1233239d ago

I did my best not to buy this year since I am way behind on my games. However, when I saw Mafia 2 for that price I had to get it.

Megaton3240d ago (Edited 3240d ago )

During this sale alone I've purchased...
- Amnesia: The Dark Descent
- Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (gift)
- Mass Effect 2
- Mirror's Edge
- The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom
- Poker Night at the Inventory (gift)
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl

Mr Exclusive3240d ago

You call that a list Thom?!? Thats nothing man. Good to see you jumped on board though.

PirateThom3239d ago (Edited 3239d ago )

I wanted to buy more, I really did, but Christmas and what not drained resources to the point I've just been buying the "basics" (read: Valve games and STALKER - still need CS 1.6 and Source, so I'm not done... yet. :P) I've never been into PC gaming but between Steam and BioShock, AoE and Deus Ex on GFW, I think I'm set for a while. :P

Basically, I'm taking up PC gaming due to Steam sales...

Just need a desktop PC now to run them at sensible levels, this laptop is about to die... :D

Ducky3240d ago (Edited 3240d ago )

Good to see people picking up the stalker games.
They're quite scary too... or well, they've got good atmosphere that can lead to scares.

It's going to take a good chunk of time to chew through those games. Good thing you skipped on the MassEffect sales. =p
I have 62 games that I've yet to complete. =(

Give Sam & Max episode 104 a shot too. It's free and good fun.

Megaton3239d ago

Why is it a good thing he skipped on the Mass Effect sales?

STONEY43239d ago

"Why is it a good thing he skipped on the Mass Effect sales?"

I think he's trying to say that Mass Effect would take a ton of time to chew through too, and that list of games is already a time-eater.

Snatcher3240d ago (Edited 3240d ago )

Is Amnesia: The Dark Descent, kind of like a figure it by yourself asshole kind of game?

Like you have to think a lot how to advance further in the castle. Kind of like point and click adventure but with horror style? Or is it pretty straightfoward, and easy?

Ducky3240d ago (Edited 3240d ago )

It's the typical survival horror formula:
- Explore dark spooky environment
- Find a few items
- Combine said items to make new item
- New item helps you proceed further

That's the gist of it at least. It's similar to the old ResidentEvil/SilentHill games.

peowpeow3239d ago

But the whole premise behind it is you can't fight the monsters, you have to hide in the dark..the longer you hide though, the more insane he gets (i.e. starts seeing monsters XD) I love it!

TrueScythe3240d ago

Yeah. I haven't had a decent scare from a game in a long time until I played that game. And it wasn't just plain "scary" I was terrified. Lol.

ksense3240d ago

AWESOME deal on Mafia 2

Dojan1233239d ago

I was wishing the did the same for Ruse. I was holding out for Mafia and Ruse. However, Ruse was not that great of a deal so I did not pull the trigger.

GrilledCheeseBook3240d ago (Edited 3240d ago )

great sales

So many backlogged games that it'll be hard to really bring myself to purchase any games for a while.

My suggestion to anyone planning on getting a gaming pc is remember to save money for the Summer and Holiday sales. No better way to have a ton of great games to play for a fraction of the cost than to just have a good amount to spend on those two sales.

Manac0R3240d ago

My collection is growing and at a fraction of the cost. STALKER, Witcher, Mafia 2, Dragon Age, Crysis, Serious Sam, Far cry 2 and Metro 2033 to name a few, kind of gutted I missed out on Amnesia. last day of sales tomrrow hope they saving something special for last.
