So it has begun. What are you going to get? What do you recommend?
It's only now started and it's a bit janky and broken still, but I think I saw Super Meat Boy for 3,50. If that's correct, then I'll buy it, no doubt.
Steam X-mas sales
Jesus 1,000 things on sale, I don't have time to look through these let alone play them

" @KaosAngel said:What about people who (like me) bought the game for 360, sold it when it seemed like there wouldn't be much new (free) content coming out, then thought about buying it for PC? I've heard the DLC is free for the PC version, is that true?" Bad Company 2 worth 7 bucks? Is the online community still strong? "I imagine so with the expansion just coming out. "
" Was Last Remnant any good? "Yes and no. On one hand, the PC version made several improvements to the de-facto beta that was released on the 360 (fuck you Square Enix!) such as allowing you to play with all of the unique units instead of just 5-6 at a time, you don't have to worry about permanent death, and there is a cool feeling of being able to command a whole army instead of just individual units. Also, there are talking shrimp-people with large axes, which is cool in its own way. On the other hand, the equipment and customization options are low, the game's AI often chooses for you what attacks/items/magic can be used instead of letting you choose the list, and the story is nothing you haven't heard before. On top of that, Rush is the most goddamned annoying generic JRPG protagonist in recent memory (being voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch does not help) and you have to use him all the fucking time when there are better characters around him.
For $20? I guess it's worth it, but only if you really like RPGs.
Same here. Three holds have been placed on my card this holiday season already.
" Meat Boy is definitely 3.50 right now, through the store page. Though I'm waiting for the special page to come back up before buying it. My debit card isn't a huge fan of tons of tiny transactions in a small amount of time. "
Yeah, normally everything is very smooth, but during the holidays their servers get smashed.
" Oh the jank. Took me 4 attempts to buy Super Meat Boy. Then it magically works. 1st steam purchase ever. "
VALVE COMPLETE PACK £15
sorry about the caps but that's the single best deal of the sale
An Excellent List for your consideration :)
God, this Steam sale looks mental. My face literally looked like my avatar's expression when I loaded it up.
Oddboxx purchased! Been waiting ages for that. I had and completed Abe's Oddysee and Exoddus on the PC originally, but never got to play Munch's Oddysee or Stranger's Wrath. I remember when they announced Munch's Oddysee for the PS2 at first, then changed it to an Xbox exclusive. I was gutted back then, but at least now I get to play it. And with Steam achievements!
The Odddboxx (that's all 4 of the Oddworld games) is out people! For half price too! After so much waiting and a surprise release it was such a pleasant discovery upon booting up steam. That's what i've bought so far. It's just the beginning of the spending madness i feel, like a tickle in your throat you just know is gonna develop into a full blown cold.
