Looking at the daily deals today (day 3) Magicka definitely interests me, Bad Company 2 Complete, and Bioshock 2 are in my cart. Was hoping Half Life: Source would be in the Half Life franchise sale, wondering if I should just buy the original Half Life minus the source engine, any opinions? Also want to know how I should approach Magicka, should I buy the complete pack with all the dlc, or just the game by itself?

Day 2 I picked up Just Cause 2 with all dlc, Star Wars: KOTOR, and Star Wars: Battlefront 2. I really hope I get around to playing all these, because KOTOR will definitely bring back some good memories.

The first day was a great day, Borderlands GOTY, Bit.Trip Beat and Runner, Lead and Gold, and Back to the Future. So far I think i'm handling this Steam sale fairly well. I've decided to wait until the last day to buy the games that will be on deal for the entire sale, in case they happen to be a daily deal.

Also you've seen what I've bought, Steam name: SwirlinDervish would love to play some coop Borderlands

Do it, you'll also get access to a load of fantastic mods from back in the day. The Source engine just detracts from the experience.

I bought the Square Enix pack for $75, which is sadly going to be the only thing I buy this year since it basically took my entire budget, but hey, I get Batman.

so any opinions on Magicka, should i get the complete pack or just the main game?

Bioshock 1&2 for $10, yes please. The first day deals were awesome as well, but I don't think I'll ever have the time to play Oblivion, ever.

I have yet to buy anything.
 
Yay for restraint!
 
...But really, nothing that I've wanted has been on sale, and nothing has really been irresistibly cheap (sub-$2.50) that has made me want to jump on it.

@SwirlinDervish: Depends how tolerant you are of older games. I went back and tried to play Half-Life (after adoring Half-Life 2 so much) and couldn't play it.

I recently beat Half Life: Source, and honestly the Source engine doesn't add much, except small stuff like updated water. Just get the original.
