I picked up

  • Hinterland - I wanted this game a while back but never had a chance to get it, part RPG part city builder. In my opinion its similar to games like The Guild and others.
  • Atom Zombie Smasher - no need to explain :)
  • Recettear - Always in my radar, now its the perfect time to get it.
  • Penny Arcade Games

I bought less stuff than I would have imagined at the onset:

  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent (I've been too scared to play it yet)
  • Darksiders (Uh-mazing so far!)
  • Neverwinter Nights 2 Platinum
  • Atom Zombie Smasher (Very fun and very challenging)
  • Laura Croft: Guardian of Light
  • Chuzzle Deluxe (gifted it to my fiance)

I don't think I bought anything. I kept waiting for a surprise, but I already have almost all of the steam sale items on steam, as it is. Steam sales don't excite me as much anymore, since I own like half the freaking store.

I didn't buy a single game due to the sale.  I got KoTOR and The Force Unleashed but planned on buying those anyhow, just got lucky that they happened to be on sale for 33% off.

Bunch of stuff but most excited for Terraria, Magika, Drakensang, Siberia, and Puzzle Agent.
But all I've been playing is The Witcher 2.  Which is awesome.  Didn't get it on Steam.  Got the boxed version.  Came with amazing manuals, color map, papercraft figures(!), video DVD & music CD.  Actually pre-ordered it - first time in like 10 years.

Steam Summer Sale 2011

1. Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West

Was on sale for $1.50. Friend gifted to me. It's surprisingly good, but sadly games are ether hit or miss almost every time. I'm ether against a team so good ours doesn't stand a chance, or it's so easy it's not fun. When you find a game with the right balance though, it's a ton of fun to play.<br/><br/> Pro-tip: The lady sniper is the best!

2. Heroes of Might and Magic V

The base game and all expansions combined for $4.99. Also bought it a second time for a friend. I have been dying for a turn based strategy game, and decided that I would give this a try and hope that it would satiate that craving.

3. Heroes of Might and Magic V: Hammers of Fate
4. Heroes of Might and Magic V: Tribes of the East
5. Just Cause 2

The base game was $4.99, but all the DLC was just $.25 a pop. So I bought all the DLC too and the game came to about $7 with everything. When I played it before my computer was a broken POS that couldn't run it on the lowest settings. Now it's a broken POS that can run it a good pace now that I got a new graphics card.

6. Hamilton's Great Adventure

$4.99. Friend got for me as a gift.

7. Darksiders

$4.99. I bought it because it had been on sale about a million times before and I always missed it, so I just said fuck it I'm going to buy it this time.

8. Starscape

$2.49. I have been eyeing this game for some time, but I kept putting it off until I saw it on sale today. Hope it turns out to be a nice deep game.[br/][br/] It was a broken unplayable mess. It's impossible to move the ship with any kind of control. Glad I didn't pay full price for it, but god dam was it bad.

9. NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits

$2.49. No real reason why I got this. I saw some one mention it, I watched the trailer and thought that a side scroller sounded like it would be something nice and different to play for a change.

10. Garshasp: The Monster Slayer

Was given to me by a user on the site for winning a contest. I think it was $2.50.

11. Guild Wars

A friend bought me the Guild Wars complete pack. It was $14.99

12. Guild Wars: Eye of the North
13. Guild Wars: Nightfall
14. Guild Wars: Factions
15. Minecraft

No it's not on Steam, but I finally gave in and bought the game after I became addicted to watching the yogscast guys play it on youtube. It was $21 iirc. Now I just need to find people to play the game with.

16. The Last Remnant

I have been wanting to try this game for forever, but they never dropped the price below $40, and it was always the one game that never went on sale during events. So when I saw it for $9.99 I broke down and got it. Somehow... [br/][br/] I tried to buy a #4 game a few days before that and my CC was declined for funds, but then this went through for some magical reason. Who knows.
