    In this thread, we discuss games we got, and how glad we are that we got them on sale. Also, ask for suggestions on what to get, and comment on the sale.

    Il go first:
    Should I get Bad Company 2? Ive been wanting it since forever, but its going to be a drag to convince my parents to get it. If I was to only get one, maybe two games in this sale, would BC2 be the one to get? Not knowing what the other days are, of course.

    I persuaded my dad to get the Orange Box. And i'll be doing my absolute best to persuade them that letting me play left 4 dead 2 wont make me a mass murderer.

    Got the Deus Ex pack. Been meaning to get them, but hey $3! If I didn't already have Super Meat Boy, I'd get that too. I love Valve.

    Might pick up some more games over this sale, but this is the 3rd sale they've had in the past couple of months, if you count the treasure hunt stuff...

    Also Valve complete pack was £14.99 earlier...now it's £24.99. Maybe they realised that 87% off £120 was a bit too much.

    Not that many people are willing to pay $15 for five new maps :p

    Just bought Indie Fright Pack, will only be playing The Void and The Path.

    The Path is a bad rape analogy that no one should play. God I hate it.

    I picked up the brain and music packs for Zen Bound 2 and I forget what in the music pack.

    I got all dem PoP games because I like the francise even if it's starting to go down the pooper. And I had been waiting for those 20 dollar ones to drop down to 5 bucks.

    Picked up Titan quest. Reviews seemed mixed, but the expansion had better reviews. If it's anything like Diablo in antique times it could actually be refreshing. Can't really go wrong with that price anyway.

    Seriously considering getting Bioshock 2 for the lowest price it's likely going to ever be, just so I can stop avoiding spoiler-heavy threads on TV Tropes, but from what I've heard, it's one of those "slapped together in fifteen minutes" console-to-PC ports that's only even playable for a handful of people. Anyone here who has it and can vouch one way or the other?

    BUY IT NOW OR YOU WILL BE MURDERED IN YOUR SLEEP

    That a good enough vouch?

    Although if you play FPSes often, you should definitely go for hard. Maybe no vita-chambers too.

    Good!! It really is one of the best games i've ever played. And you haven't even heared the best part yet: there are no hats.
