    Dogfighter has a 4 Pack for $4.50 right now also!

    I played it a bit, ended up playing the mode where you fight endless bad guys, me and a friend found it extremely entertaining, it was worth $13.66, but I can see how it will get repetitive, although the amount of animations he has is just impressive.

    Wowza, great game!

    I had it thru Direct 2 Drive, but the game screwed up and didn't let me play the expansion once I beat the original, so for $5, I'll snag it.

    Yeah, I had it on disc, but fear of my 2 year old son destroying it, I just bought it on Steam (back in the summer deals), a week later I found it all scratched up :p

    Dang. I have been nickel and dimed by this thread, lately. I just have this "stock up for winter" mentality.

    No one cares about the Forgotten Hemisphere :laugh:!!

    It's sad though, your comment is probably 80% positive.

    I love Steam deals. However, they remind me that until I have a job they're unattainable. :(

    Ok so today's deal is Metro 2033 for ~£6 - that's 66% off people!

    Not bad for the most graphically demanding PC game out there. I'm downloading my copy now :D

    I'm still not sure about buying Metro 2033. Though I really want it I'm concerned whether it's even worth $13.60. It has really great graphics but the gameplay is apparently crap. I'd rather it have bad graphics and great gameplay if I'm putting my hard earned wad down. (Graphics being ephemeral and gameplay eternal.) If you think $13.60 isn't a lot, realize that I could buy a case of cheap beer for that!

    BTW Amnesia: The Dark Descent just came out and got a fantastic review from PC Gamer (88/100). It's on sale at Steam for $13.39.

    Our mutual acquaintance, mussels, is from Australia (next to Germany) so he has to pay twice whatever a human being from a first world country would pay.

    Fortunately for him though, the UK gave Australia a gift during skirmishes over which penal colony made better tea. That gift was Ben Yahtzee, better known for his Zero Punctuation video reviews that were made at a brisk pace which is just outside the intelligible range of a native born Australian.

    Here's the review of Alien vs. Predator. (If it's too fast mussels you can ask someone on TPU to summarize it for you.)

    Also Dead Space for anyone else.

    Also also Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

    Also also also lots of swearing so make sure to gather round the children lest they grow up to become dullards.

    Again idiotic $9,99 vs 9,99€. Why do i have to pay more than those from US just because i'm from Europe? Still bought it as it is an ok price compared to retail store but still more expensive than for US...

    I'm guessing its because of taxes and/or the higher cost of the cable that runs across the ocean. steam is based in america right? though I suppose they could have hubs in other countries...

    In all seriousness, I completely agree with you. They're screwing people outside the US. At least there's a loophole, right?
