I Play Vidja Games: Everyone remember their first steam sale...

OK, so they say you never forget your first... Steam Sale... Well, earlier this year I built myself a pretty decent gaming PC and as many know the Steam Summer Sale has recently come and past. I think I did pretty good, didn't spend too much and got some decent deals. Let's take a look!

GameOriginal PriceSale Price
Dear Esther$10.00$2.50
Deus Ex: Human Revolution$30.00$7.50
Garry's Mod$10.00$2.50
Just Cause 2$15.00$3.75
Killing Floor$20.00$5.00
Portal 2$20.00$5.00
Renegade Ops$15.00$3.75
Total Cost$145.00$36.25

So... thats a savings of $108.75. Thats seems pretty good to me. I spent less than my "self proposed" limit of $50. Sure I've played Deus Ex, Just Cause 2, and Portal 2 on the XBOX 360 but having a reason to play through them again is awesome. And getting to experience some of these other game has me super excited. I have played a few of my new games and am more than happy with how I came out of this sale.

How did you fare?


New purchases of old games...

so, yea...

on a kind of whim / need something affordable to play today I bought 2 older games:

Bioshock : not sure why as I played through the game twice on the PS3, maybe because the new one is coming out or maybe it's just the fact that I'm an achievement whore, who knows...

Saint's Row 2 : never played it originally and thought "what the hell, I've heard good things about it and it's only $20...

something to tide me over until Gears of War 3 and all the other crap that I want that's coming out this year.


What'cha been playin'?!?!

We currently I've gotten myself deep into several games... 

  • Still playing Modern Warfare 2 (not sure why, since I always seem to walk away angry)
  • Deadly Premonition (playing just ahead of the Endurance Run. Not a terrible game, just not an amazing game)
  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance (yep, the first one) It was sitting on my shelf and I thought "what the hell". thoughts so far: "meh..."
  • The Orange Box (more specifically, Half Life 2) Finished Portal first since it's awesome. Working my way through Half Life 2 being careful to get all the achievements I can
  • Resident Evil 5 Raping my way through Veteran with infinite ammo Magnum's and infinite ammo Rocket Launcher. Pretty much playing for achievements...
As you can see, I've got quite a bit on my plate and may play through Mass Effect again sometime soon for the Hardcore and Insanity Achievements...
