    Earned in Blood was a good game but the aiming was TERRIBLE. I could take a sniper rifle and put the scope right on the enemies head and it would miss. WTF. That game is seriously broken.

    I thought Hell's Highway was a decent game too. The aiming was a lot better than the previous.

    Finally Assassin's Creed day. Can't bring myself to toss down on Brotherhood yet, but now I can buy II and sell my PS3 copy.

    It does suck ass. I was thinking maybe you start will little or no marksmanship, and as you progress you actually hit what is between your sights? Seriously, sights dead on the enemy, short controlled bursts, and barely any hits. Lame.

    yup the controls aiming and hit detection do to weapon spread is just crap a damn pistol point blank range aka i snuck up behind the enemy was less then 3 feet away centered the sites on his head fired a round and it.... missed. at that point I uninstalled the game. and since Medal of Honor Airborne uses UE3, same as the New Medal Of Honor its why i wont by any more games in that series not untill they drop the UE3, as obviously the studios EA had working on the series dont know how to use that game engine to save there own lives.

    I'd like too, but since I haven't even beat the 2nd, and I got so many games to play, might as well wait. Hopefully will be some nice spring sales again.

    When they usually have week long sales, the last day is usually a recap offering a deal from each of the previous 6 days. Maybe they will do a new game all together, but I'm betting it will be a recap to allow people to get some of the games they might have missed a chance at.

    Yep, today they're doing Splinter Cell deal. http://store.steampowered.com/sale/ubisoft_week

    I wish they had did that instead of doing the Splinter Cell deals today.

    Wow, what an insane deals for Tom Clancy franchise. Most of legendary games from him for under 5 EUR. Except the very latest ones. Credit card is going to suffer today...

    I'm happy to see Splinter Cell deals today, I've wanted Conviction, but everytime it's been on sale it's been $15 or more, now it's finally under $10.

    They have a combo pack right now Crazy, all the SP games for like $13.50, doubt it will ever get much cheaper than the current price, maybe will hit 75% off, but not a big change from the current price. They don't show the combo pack, you have to click on one of the SP games, then scroll down and you will see it.

    Hawx 2 and Conviction are imo still too expensive. 16 and 10 EUR each. I've bought all the rest of Splinter Cell, both Advanced Warfighters, both R6 Vegas and Hawx 1. Was thinking of Ghost Recon as well but that one is so old that i just skipped. Last time i tried the demo years ago the Ai was pretty dumb...

    I loved Conviction, it's pretty short, but the game itself is solid imo.:)

    Frozen Synapse - turn-based strategy game where each turn is played out simultaneously rather than consecutively, it's currently 20% off at launch on Steam:

    I was never really a fan of turn based games. The only one that i ever liked were Worms games.
    First i thought this thing is like Multiwinia but now i see it's a completelly different thing. Just graphics are similar :D

    i really, really loved jagged alliance and X-com (early ones) for turn based games. large scale games with small scale missions were perfect for turn based.

    X-COM!!! One of the greatest games, not just turn based, of all time!!! I mean it. I rarely use more than one exclamation point. Just to stay on topic, you can get all 5 X-COM titles on Steam for $14.99. Only three are worth playing (UFO Defense, Terror from the Deep & Apocalypse,) but what a great three they are.

    For some reason i never could get hang of them. I just prefer real-time where you're constantly in control.
