    Amen to that! Maybe even a complete pack with the original. That's the last game I'm holding out for.

    FEAR 3 wasn't nearly the "BOO!" that 1 and 2 were...more of an FPS than horror....

    Dungeon Seige III, Fable III and a couple of other games are on sale at GS Impulse today for good prices. Steam must be overloaded today, I can't get it to load.

    I should have grabbed Sniper Elite v2 on Amazon last week for $15; $25 on Steam isn't very exciting.

    So if you buy it from amazon, do you activate it though steam? Or is it a standalone game?


    **update** Sorry just seen that you download it from amazon**

    It's down in the System Requirements. there are some Steamworks games Amazon sells that don't use Steam (I'm not sure how that works), one of them in L.A. Noire, but it won't have Steam listed down in the system Requirements if thats the case.

    A game that needs Steam says so under requirements. That'll activate on Steam.

    After your purchase your game, go to your library and find the game. Under the game, click on "View product key"

    Take that and activate on Steam, and you never have to do anything else with Amazon.

    I just took my Sniper key and activated on Steam, and now it's downloading :)

    dungeon defender is cheap (with all DLC) and company of heroes as well.


    for $12 for each game with all their expansions/DLC, hard to go wrong.

    I've never been so successful resisting myself from buying games. Partially because i already have 3/4 of them but partially because they were still too expensive or just not interesting enough. So far i've only bought 2 skins for Killing Floor, F3AR and Shoot Many Robots. In the past i'd spend around 100 EUR by now...

    Nice, maybe I finally have a reason to try the last one. I bet the graphics are ugly by now though.. ; ;

    Yeah, Shadow of Chernobyl is still going for $20-23 by itself. You can buy all three for half that price! Amazing deal. :D
