    Yea, its that thread. the one thread someone ends up making at some point during the steal sale-a-thon. The thread were people can show off what they are getting and discuss if prices are good, bad, or ridiculous.

    Personally, I hope the ME Pack is on sale for more than a day, don't want to pick it up right away, I want to see what other things go on sale (I'm limiting myself to 40-50$ max)

    I'll be looking into magicka, Crysis (too bad C2 isn't up), DiRT3, Dragon age, and god knows how many indie games... Possibly fable 3 or Civ5 ... though i've never played any of the Civ Games... I have a nice deep (and incomplete) wishlist to dive into with.

    Every steam sale like this, is a reminder to me, saying:
    "YOU SHOULD GET A JOB"

    I'd get Dirt3 if it gone super cheap, if not I'll just go and play some tf2 to forget about it.
    Edit: and fallout 3 (YES I HAVEN'T PLAYED IT YET)

    I bought Oblivion seeing as I've always been intrigued by it, but I can't actually download it for a while because of this stupid 40gb monthly cap. At least I have it for when I CAN get it >.>

    I don't get paid for another, like, week or two. And even then it's only, like, 60 dollars. Maybe 40. So I can't do much :/

    The Summer Shades are a reference to this video but no one in chat seems to find it as hilarious as I do. The end is the best.

    I feel tempted to get Just Cause 2, but I am increasingly aware that buying games is more of an investment in a hypothetical future in which I can be bothered to play anything besides Team Fortress 2 and Minecraft. I think there are more games in my Steam library that I haven't finished than ones I have.

    At the moment, I'm looking at Bioshock, and ME 1 (or the ME pack)... that puts me at ~50 dollars...

    Quit Yo Whinin', i get twelve quid this month.

    I did buy braid, because it was £1.75. Looking speculatively at splinter cell and Rainbow Six Vegas.

    SO ACCURATE

    I have a category in my steam library labelled unfinished, and i am so ashamed of how huge it is i've been desperately tring to find excuses to move games into others.

    Braid is incredible, anyone who still hasn't played it should get it

    Personally I'm waiting for MtG 2012 to be on sale, and a friend got me Dungeons yesterday because I was beta tester for it

    Ok, so i got Beyond Good And Evil- i've been meaning to for a while. And whilst i'd never heard of Ben There, Dan That, or Time Gentlemen Please, they were 75p between them, so who cares if they suck?

    Bought a friend Bioshock and Bioshock 2 the other day because I actually do still feel guilty getting the original for only $5 only to have it turn out to be pretty much a masterpiece.

    Today I'll be getting Monday Night Combat (hopefully the sale and achievement will get other people to play it), Deus Ex (because it always gets cited as an example of brilliant writing in games, or somesuch), and Call of Duty 4 (because Yahtzee actually loved it and made a point of mentioning that it's weird for him to love a game, especially one about war).

    I picked up the original Splinter Cell, since back when i was bad at gaming i enjoyed it a ton and never got very far, so i'm giving it another try.

    I purchased DoW Retribution. 50% off. About 14 squid that is. Was good for that much but i would never have paid more for what is basically an expansion pack. All the maps are the same, it's like they didn't even have a level design team anymore and the campaign is exactly the same campaign for each race but with different dialogue and play styles.

    Was tempted to get Dead Rising 2 and C&C at 80% off but i wasn't sure if i'd actually play them unless i was reeeaaaally bored.
