    Yeah I figure it can be one I hop into for quicker battle and action than Arma. I don't expect it to replace or even hold a candle to what Arma can accomplish, knowing that and paying only 3 bucks seems worth it. While I feel I got a massive value with Arma 2 Combined Ops for 22 bucks a month ago...worth every penny. Steam has it for around $30 right now...which I feel is still worth it...for those looking for a tactical shooter and have patience both are amazing titles, with tons of mods, options, controls, tuning, ability, etc.

    I was browsing impulse, and anyone who has wanted but doesn't have Fallout 3 GoTY, it's $20.99 at Impulse: http://www.impulsedriven.com/fallout3goty

    They have 300 games on sale atm over that way right

    now.http://www.impulsedriven.com/explore/onsale

    Edit: Impulse also has World in Conflict Gold on sale for around $15. http://www.impulsedriven.com/wicgold

    Totally worth it imho...this was the Action RTS game that set the pace, did it right and has an excellent story. I do love Dawn of War II, but WiC is still better imho. The SP is solid and fun, the MP can get quite engaging, especially with teamwork and strategies. The graphics are still pretty good, though showing age...but this game can still stress GPU's which is quite impressive. If you've never tried this game or the add-on, it's well worth it at that price.

    Been waiting for that. Only other game I want Steam to put on sale is NFS Hot Pursuit. Wishful thinking, I know.

    ya know whats funny?


    its many hours quicker for me to torrent a game, patch it up to date, and slap those files in my steam folder and do a 'verify game cache' than it is to download the games via steam directly >.<

    So I bought The Witcher a few days ago because it was on sale. Now it's on sale again AND EVEN CHEAPER than when I bought it! What the hell man :mad:

    Anyway, a second chance to get some nice games for insane prices :toast:

    *EDIT*

    Seems it was just an error in The Witcher. Back to 3.99€.
