    $10 for L4D2. It was $5 yesterday on a flash deal I think, $7.50 for L4D & L4D2.

    It'll probably be there again before the sale I over.

    Wanna vote GTA4 for me guys? I'm trying to get Episodes from Liberty City for $5 and its never gone that low before.

    Also, I play with a bunch of friends who downgrade to GTA4 when we play multiplayer but always bitch and moan how they miss the stuff in Episodes. I promised them I'd get it this summer sale.

    Only if you don't care which of them wins of course. I have a feeling DS2 is going to win just from the sheer numbers of that franchises community...

    Are you still thinking of the Darkness 2 4 pack? I'll go in with you if you are going to do it.

    I've gotten quite a bit so far (some from Amazon but w/e) this sale what about everyone else?

    Bastion
    Darksiders
    Metro 2033
    Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box
    Red Faction Armageddon
    Red Faction Armageddon Path to War
    Supreme Commander Forged Alliance
    Nexuiz
    Borderlands GOTY

    Any suggestions for games to keep my eye out for? Looking at Just Cause 2 or GTA4 whichever is the next community choice but besides that I'm running out of ideas.

    I've killed my wallet this sale. Spent over 200 dollars, and I still want more! :laugh:

    So far I've bought

    THQ Collection
    Square Enix Collection
    Valve Collection
    Mount & Blade Collection
    Skyrim

    I want that Price of Persia collection too but I think I spent too much already. D:

    I've got Shogun 2 for trade if anyone wants to purchase it for me. Nine hours left on that sale! :laugh:

    The only things that have interested me so far are Bastion and Trine 2.

    Holy Cow, Forged Alliance has sucked innumerable hours from my life, it has to be one of the top of the heap for RTS games, and has ruined every other game in the genre for me. There's nothing like being able to zoom in close enough to see a gnat on your commander, and then zoom out until your looking at the whole planet. Having over a thousand units is something special, too.

    Don't you lie to me Crazy, from everything I've read here, this years sales have sucked. I mean heck I have over 300 titles owned on Steam and even I've found things to buy this year, so far...

    Bastion
    The Darkness II
    Saints Row the Third (plus some DLC)
    Civ 5 GOTY (also the 2 missing DLC's, not the newest one though)
    Batman AC

    I would have bought more, but 1 week before the sale I picked up Alan Wake and LA Noire when they were on sale. But yeah, horrible sales so far... :laugh:

    Goddamn Steam! Every time I say that's the last thing I'm gonna buy, another flash deal for a game I want at 75-80% discount pops up and I buy a new game.

    The sale has been good to me

    I don't really understand the complaints about the sale because the pricing has been outstanding and most of the time the only reason I haven't bought is because I already own the game. I finally got Skyrim and Arkham City and all the extras. I like to pick off the more obscure games for low prices. Sometimes they really suck and sometimes they are beyond terrible but a lot of times they are quite good. Hell sometimes they don't even work. Ys Origin is a blast in the Secret of Mana style. I'm up to over 430 games now!!!!! :)

    Just a warning. Be patient. I already got burned by buying a game like the Alan Wake franchise at $19.99. The next day it was a flash sale at only $9.99. It's like the stock market. Will it go lower? :toast:

    I'll recommend the Walking Dead if no one has bought it yet. Great story if you're into zombies, and lets be honest who isn't? Ep 1 is a little over 2 hrs, the same with ep 2. and you get 3 more upcoming episodes that haven't been released yet.

    I would get walking dead just because but I don't like that style of controlling. really annoying. Reminds me of the old RE or tomb raider back on playstation. I couldn't stand it.

    the next deal is gonna suck. I already have mirrors edge and its "Meh" to me. Those are some nice deals on fallout 3 & NV if you don't have them. I do since release lol. most of the games I want more then anything I already own. everything else is just filler/time killers.
