So many games! (with more or less the same amount of shooting)

So a steam sale is happening. I got most of my spending out of the way with. 

  • Armed and Dangerous
  • The OddBoxx
  • Serious Sam Gold
  • Trine
  • Sid Meier's Pirates 
  
Mind you, I still have games leftover from previous steam sales that I have yet to beat. 
  • Machinarium
  • Freedom Force
  • Freedom Force Vs. The Third Reich
  • Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition
  • Deus Ex: Invisible War
  • Puzzle Agent (not from steam but from BTTF pre-order)
 
Not to mention my boxed PC games that don't get much play time 'cause I can't stand disks. 
  • Knights of the Old Republic
  • Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (Don't you just hate miscommunication between intelligence agencies conveniently creating a scenario where you can't kill guys who will kill you?)
  • Starcraft/Brood War
  • Empire at War
  • Rise of Nations
  • Thrones and Patriots Expansions
  • Call of Duty 4
 
So aside from all the stuff I'm not playing here's what I have been playing.  

Back to the Future Episode 1

 
Finished it and really enjoyed it. I can't wait for the next one, though I'm not so hot on the direction the teaser took. However, they did conjure up a good reason to stick around. After all the timestream is never stable, right?

Nuts and Bolts

 
I did put a pretty little bow on this one, but the prospect of more jiggies and trophies is calling me back. I kind of want to review this one, but I feel that I don't need to. You could probably just read Brad's review or watch it since I agree with him on it. Even then the price was certainly justified (and almost mandated by the pre-order bonus it carried) by its awesome gameplay and self-referential humour. At twenty US dollars today, you shouldn't pass up this awesome game. 
 

Super Meat Boy

  
Hell indeed. 
 

Starcraft

 
I figured out why I hated the Zerg so much. Every unit being built at the hatchery goes against everything that has been ingrained within my RTS mindset. Couple that with a need for creep, more than one button press to build a drone, and the need to expend a drone to build a building is altogether too limiting to me and my paltry Starcraft game. Protoss is pretty good though. Also, can you put ctrl groups on the function keys? Then I could seperate buildings and units in control grouping 
 

Serious Sam HD

 
I played some co-op last night and fought a boss. That was kind of fun, and the boss was HUGE!!! 
 

Doritos Crash Course

  Not a bad game, I finished every level got some gold medals on USA with my brother. 

Super Mario Sunshine

 
This is my main game to be playing after Nuts and Bolts. It's really not as bad as people say, and I don't mind FLUDD and its faux environmentalist mission. I really don't like it's lack of personality. Delfino Isle and its residents do nothing to bring Mario to mind. Still I can see why its a Mario game and even where Galaxy ran off of. Seriously, there's a section of a level that's in space! 
 
So that's what I've been playing how about you? Also, can anyone give me a link to a Brood War/General RTS guide to macromanagement?
