    I bought an absolute ton of stuff, mostly because my parents are strict about age ratings and i've just turned 18. So...

    -Fallout 3
    -Crysis
    -Bioshock
    -Hitman, Blood money
    -LA Noire

    I also got Overlord, Psychonauts, and Orcs Must Die!, because they'd been reccomended to me, and Recettear, because i'd been wondering whether to get it or not.

    Oh, and Rainbow Six Vegas, because of all the good stuff i'd heard about Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and i got mixed up.


    What did you guys go for?

    I was gifted Mass Effect 1 and 2.
    Bought Trine 2 which wasn't on sale.
    Was also gifted the shitastic DLC for Magicka. (Unplayable. Disappointing.)

    About it.

    I won Swords & Soldiers in the gift grab but I don't know if I'm going to accept it, doesn't look my thing. I bought nothing because I already have a big enough list of things to play from previous sales, and I'm unemployed.

    I got Space Marine and kinda wished i got dungeon defenders after playing it for 3 hours around a mates 2 days ago and seeing what the higher level characters are capable of. I wasn't sold after seeing the trailer which turned out to be a bunch of level 5 avatars faffing about.

    I got Dungeons of Dredmor and Orcs Must Die, entirely for the achievements (before I realized there's no reason to actually do them, unless you do a shitload). I did tell myself I did it because they are fairly decent games, but let's face it... I'm never going to touch those games again.

    I finally got Fallout 3. Between only having the download going when I'm AFK (partly to justify leaving it on; Windows 7 SP1 broke sleep mode and there seems to be no fix) and my tendency to not actually play the games I buy, it could be ages more before I get around to actually playing it.

    Oh, and I got a free gift copy of Half-Life on the first day, which would be great if I actually knew anyone who still hasn't played it yet.

    I wish I would have picked up Bastion when it was on sale, that looked like a fun game. That or Arkham Asylum.

    Meh, $500 isn't something that surprising, but apparently i've been a steam member for over 100 months, rofl. I should win something.
