Damn holiday sales... Anyways, Bully: Scholarship Edition for 2,50€. Yay or nay? What I've heard is that on Playstation it was great, but the PC port is quite bad. What about AvP for 5€? I remember the demo was quite horrible, does anyone know if it's any better now?

This sale is awesome! On the first day, I bought 2 Indie packs and 3 other items...damn  Very Happy
But sorry, can't say anything about those two...I'm thinking about DoD, I always wanted to try it - but I already spent enough, I think Razz

I'm categorically against Ubisoft's DRM style, so no AssCreed for me.

These sales have been more or less perfect for me so far. The only downside is that I've now totally lost control of my finances - after a months temp work up the road from home and a couple of weeks of being unable to check my balance I could have anywhere between £150 - £700 to get me through Christmas  Rolling Eyes

With regards to Bully the impression I've got from all I read about it was that it received a very luke warm reception from reviewers in general.
I've no idea about whether the port is inferior but, given the quality of the sale so far, my advice to you is to not throw cash at something you're only half sure about when there's likely to be something awesome on sale tomorrow, or the day after etc.

As for Just Cause 2 I sort of recommend it but with the rather large caveat that it's the most unstable game I've played on my PC for quite a while. Metro 2033, New Vegas and even Empire: Total War were nowhere near as problematic as JC2. Still, definately a fun game nonetheless - just save often.

Edit: I don't see KOTOR in your Steam collection and that's on sale at around the same price point as the other games you mention. If for some reason you've dismissed the hype then now would be a good time to pick it up IMO

strange, I've never had a problem with Just Cause 2, never crashed or froze once.
It's not the best game ever though, the cars handle like hippos and the voice overs are painful to listen to. But it's fun none the less with it's huuuge open sandbox world, epic stunts and shiny clean graphics. But also beware, it's pretty tough on ya graphics card so don't expect to be able to run it maxed out unless you've got a top end rig or a small death star...

Indie Fright Pack (92%, and two of the items there were on my wishlist! :3)
Indie Mix Pack (DEFCON and Darwinia alone are worth it)
Super Meat Boy (3,50, come on Razz)
Penumbra: Black Plague - Gold Edition (Just so I have all Penumbra games)
Killing Floor London's Finest DLC (Why not)

I actually think that's it for me now, dunno what else I'd be excited about - except if they have the Borderlands DLCs on sale.

This month across all the sales

Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Fallout: New Vegas
Flight Control HD
Two of the first round of Indie Packs
Just Cause 2
Kings Bounty Complete Edition (or something along those lines, sucks I couldn't gift the KB I already had)
Metro 2033
Super Meat Boy
The Witcher: Enchanted Edition.

Doesn't seem too bad now that I look at them layed out like that. Most of those were bought for around £5 so maybe I can still spend a little more.

If AC2 had been given 75% off rather than 50% off I would have got that but not knowing how much money I have left stayed my hand on that one.

So far out of all that I've probably actually enjoyed the Indie Packs the most, although it's probably still too early to say in truth. I really, really liked Tidalis and Arcen Games are swiftly becoming one of my favourite devs but I've yet to really get going in New Vegas, Just Cause 2 I still have some way to go in and the KB expansions, Witcher and Super Meat Boy aren't even installed yet.

Oh, yeah, I didn't even mention the ones I bought in the Give&Get sale, or the Treasure Hunt... Amnesia, Metro, Borderlands, the Indie Pulse Pack...all good stuff there :3

Not bad, but as Timo and I briefly discussed elsewhere it is certainly more wise to focus any spending on Steam during its sales so long as you have the patience for it.

In a way it's almost like a game of chicken at times. Kind of felt like that with Fallout: New Vegas - I knew with the sales coming up there wasn't any point getting it for £5 over the general retail price just to have it on Steam, then it dropped the £5 and then finally came down to around £20 and I just don't see it getting any cheaper than that for a while.

Havent bought anything yet either. The same stuff goes on sale every few days and most likely games will be cheapers in a few more days!
