    I still can't get over how bad this last day is. It's the 4th of July, a day associated with lots of fireworks and whatever. So instead of going for a massive explosive finale they go with this...? The same ones as before...?

    Shocking. They should sack the guy who couldn't be bothered to put some new ones up. Very disappointed.

    Eh, this isn't bad, some people might have missed out on deals, or even just on this posts page one guy didn't even know about it, it gives him thechance and the rest of us to get something we might have missed. I have bought 49 titles so far and I missed Bioshock 2 and now it's bad, and Killing Floor, prob going to grab them both.

    They have already offered so much for so cheap, I have 0 complaints.

    I'm not mocking the sale itself, was a great sale. But this is an anticlimax for me.

    Hey, it's not so bad. Sure i'd want some other things but then again i missed Trine, L4D2 and i also got Killing Floor really cheap now. As a cherry on top i also bought Sol Survivor. Got a physical copy of BioShock 2 for the same price like 6 months ago. Too bad there wasn't any discount on Crazy Machines pack...

    Bit of perspective on the sales:


    ARMA II Steam: 14,99€ Amazon £11.99 (€14.50)

    Mass Effect 2 Steam: 29,99€ Amazon £13.49 (€16.32)

    Bad Company™ 2 Steam: 33,49€ Amazon £14.99 (€18.13)

    Just Cause 2 Steam: 24,99€ Amazon £16.49 (€19.95)

    BioShock® 2 Steam: 14,99€ Amazon £9.00 (10.89)


    The above will still be the same price next week and you won't have to eat a huge chunk of your data allowance to get them (which yes, I am saddened to admit, is still an issue here in Ireland for lots of people.)

    Has anyone done this yet?

    If you haven't sorted out anything by tomorrow I will happily do it for you, but just not right now.

    PM me if you do, with steam name etc.

    Exactly, todays sales allow those you missed out on to be picked up, I like it, was bummed about missing Bioshock 2.

    Steams a US based company, you guys paying in pounds get screwed, all the prices you listed are the same in US, except in dollars which is much lower in cost and the prices are cheaper than those games even buying them used on ebay.

    Best 10 Steam games for under £7 or $ equivalent

    Ok, So I've seen a few debates about Steam the past couple of day's and it was a messy thread, so I wanted to start my own and list the top 10 recommended games on Steam, but under £7 or the Dollar ($) equivalent.

    I will make a listing of the top 10 recommended games in this opening post but obviously need some suggestions and ratings for this.

    We'll let's see how it goes :)

    Wow... I have to say I'm a music lover of all kind's, and this certain does look great, the fact you can always try a new track, simply buy buying a new track is great :laugh: (personally I love the gimmick about it though), but I can not see it being one of those you'd want to play over and over, maybe with a few mate's round to show off to them, it would be great, and for the price, I think I'm going to go ahead and buy it, well worth being in my top 10 so far :D

    July 8 - July 11

    Impulse has Assassin's Creed 2 for $39.99 and you get Assassin's Creed 1 for free.

    Note: The DRM on AC2 requires a constant internet connection.

    DRM = no deal

    Sorry, I understand that this thread is not about DRM, but I feel that nobody should purchase an Ubisoft title without at least being aware of what they are doing.

    I understand, McC. That's why I don't own the game, but some others don't mind.
    I added a DRM blurb to my post.
    You have to admit, it's a pretty good deal. :toast:
     
    Mr McC says thanks.

    wow nice steam serious sam is bugged that you cant continue after certain chapter. The enemys are too much. Even you set difficulty to easy

    So you cant go far away in the game. In this "trial" game.
