    Sadly I do not have STALKER Chernobyl

    the 15$ price is only for people who have it. That would mean the final price would be 20$-25% = 15$ and that is ~12.20 Euros after paypal conversion rate, and idk if there is a cross border gifting charge, but after all the hassle etc, you can safely say 12.50 Euros for the game

    EDIT:

    This is what it shows when I "gift" you 10$ (yes that Steven is you lol). idk why :(

    there is no gifting fees or charges, and you can send paypal money as a gift to avoid fees.

    conversion rate ofc, you're stuck with.

    I just ran into this indie bundle, which is similar to the Humble Bundle. Not super exciting, but it does have Nuclear Dawn. It maybe worth keeping an eye on in case they offer more things as it progresses, like the Humble Bundle.

    Steam weekend deal
    Dead Space $5
    Dead Space 2 $5
    Buy both $9.99 and save $.01!
    http://store.steampowered.com/sub/8672/

    I dare say almost everyone who wants/wanted Dead Space already has these games, but it's worth mentioning.

    I really enjoyed them. I definitely think they're worth $5 ea, in fact I'd value them at least what you'd pay to go see a really good movie in a theater if not more. Just be sure to play at night with the sound up, lights off, and window open ;) I'd give them a 8.5/10.

    Alright, I'll get two copies of each. The gf likes horror movies, so maybe she'll like horror games too lol

    Worst case, she likes watching you play, and you can gift/resell one copy later.

    I have to say, I rarely get scared by movies, but because games are interactive, I do get quite a kick out of horror games. F.E.A.R. original, and the Dead Space series have been pretty good at keeping me on my toes :)

    Oooh, good idea, I'll keep the extra copies in my inventory and let her play mine sometime to see if she likes it. If not, then I can give the other copies to somebody else that wants 'em.

    Also, you are absolutely right about games having much more potential to scare than movies. I remember when I was little, I tried playing Resident Evil, but I got too scared after encountering just the first zombie :laugh:

    I enjoyed both games, but I have to admit that i did enjoy Dead Space more than 2, maybe because it was more original and slightly creepy. Dead Space 2 seemed like it was spiced up with more action-ish gameplay, yet it certainly did bring several nice improvements in gameplay.

    Anyway for $10, grab both and you'll have no regrets!

    $15 is a great deal. I paid $20 for it during the last sale that Steam had.
