    I tend to pick up most of my games at a discount. Unless it's a must have title, I would rather wait until I can find it at a decent price. Post your recent finds/deals/purchases here.

    Steam is giving 10% off the X-Com titles price for a week, and all Id games are 50% off on Steam this weekend! Thought this would be a good time to pick up some games I'd like to try.

    Today I picked up:

    Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance used at a local used book store for $19.99

    X-Com collection from Steam for $13.49

    Wolfenstein collection from Steam for $9.99

    Hexen/Heretic collection from Steam for $4.99

    Well, people don't buy games every day, how about making this topic "What was the last game you purchased?"?

    Either way, the last game I bought is Spore and I've had a brief chance to play it. Kinda fun.

    Not my intention. This is a thread for people to talk about the game they bought today. Didn't buy a game today? That's fine, post on here when you buy your next game. :D

    Since you're talking about games baught at a discount. My old DoD clan tried to get me into DoDS, i played once or twice on the free weekend a while ago, after which the game was selling for half price ($4.95 or something).

    Figured, what's that? £2.50? Sure why not. Not played it much since (Since TF2 pwns) but i mostly got it for the materials and oppotunity to go and make a map for it.

    A fair while ago a mate also gave me a trial account on WoW, i loved some of the undead story line and figured i'd play it a few more levels past level 20 on my undead character, baught another 3 months subscription and got it to 49. Unfortunately all my friends played alliance so i had an alliance character up to 35/38 or something too, because you can't really play WoW on your own..

    WoW was at a discount when i got it in the store (and the only reason why i picked it up off the shelf) but i didn't realise buying the expansion Burning Crusade meant you got it at an even greater discount. Had i realised i might have got that too but I wasn't going to buy it untill it went down in price. I hear there's another expansion coming out soon that's already in beta testing. I expect Burning Crusade will go down in price as it becomes obsolete and maybe i'll play it for a few more levels.

    I know, it's WoW. But half of my friends irl play it.

    So, i'm just as much of a cheap bastard too :p

    @ CC_Ark: Yeah, I pre-ordered back when the bonus was announced. I'm excited about playing this one! My most-looked-forward-to-game of the year no doubt!

    @Grazr: I picked up DODS the same weekend. $5 was too good a deal to pass on. My clan mates play Guild Wars mostly, otherwise I would likely play WoW instead.

    Picked up Stubbs the Zombie for $4.99 on Steam. www.Gogamer.com also has some good deals, picked up Unreal Tournament 3 and Alone in the Dark for $9.99 each. They have pretty cheap shipping too.

    I bought the $5 DoDS deal as well, haven't touched it since. Games like that make me rage, since I can shoot better in real life with the same weapons than I can in the game.

    I got two free copies of UT3 when I upgraded my desktop and built my dad a similar system. Another game I rarely play unfortunately.

    Not likely to buy anything right this second, but my next purchase is probably Left 4 Dead, with Fallout 3 and Far Cry 2 rounding out my top three I think. I hate when so many good games land in the same month or two period...I simply can't afford all of them. I'll buy the top two or three and the rest...well...

    Yeah, I am getting UT3 primarily for the C&C:Renegade mod coming out.

    I'm with you on too many games coming out. I pre-ordered Fallout 3 and am planning to get Left 4 Dead, but I want to play Spore, Red Alert 3, DeadSpace...too much goodness at once!

    I bought the iD super pack 2 weeks ago. I played through wolfenstein and spear of destiny. I already played through the old Dooms, so now I'm in the middle of Quake1. It's weird realizing that the Source engine is a distant relative of that game engine.
