    Just as I feared I didn't resist Steam's temptation:

    Just bought Just Cause 2 and all the DLC, a few hours ago got Prototype and Bionic Commando... this is a horrible sickness, I'm out over $150... But I think I have got all the games I actually want from Steam now.

    Just checked Just Cause's DLC: it's really cheap!
    (0.49€ x3 instead of 0.99€ x3)

    This type of pricing for DLC's should be the standard(depending on how much stuff, sure) but never going to the insane pricing of some titles, like MW2...

    This is turning into way more money spent then I had planned, lol.

    Just Cause 2 + DLC's and Metro 2033 worth the $50ish?

    Buy the THQ pack rather than Metro alone, you get a bunch of other great games with it.

    DO IT! I played the demo for Just Cause 2 and was very unimpressed. Really disliked it a lot, but I bought it anyways. I didn't like the driving, when your at a dead stop it's like oyur cars on ice. And it's still like that, but I'm rarely stopped, and the dual weilding weapon action is just awesome. I havent had this much fun in quite a while, it was a real shock and I'm glad I bought this game.

    Thanks, somehow in all of this I actually managed to miss the THQ pack, so picked it up since I didn't have any of those games on steam.

    So how is Just Cause 2, worth $25?

    Guys, don't worry if there's a game you didn't pick up: they'll probably put them on sale again either with the midweek/weekend madness, or the Christmas sales. Don't worry :D

    Yeah the THQ pack is the best pack out there, especially for the price, most of the other packs are over $50, it's been one of the top sellers every single day of the sales.

    And I say yes to JC2, and this is coming from someone who 6 hours ago was iffy about the game and didn't actually like it. But after getting in about an hour it's just too much fun.

    I highly doubt they will do another sale like this this year. Their has been far too many top tier games on sale for something like this to happen again, heres my basic list I just bought all of these, look how many highly rated games are in there, won't have a chance like this anytime soon I'm doubting.

    Doesn't Aion require a monthly fee?
    Guild Wars, on the other hand, is free, after you buy your copy :toast:

    The great deals of the last day are upon us:

    It seems to be a recap of the best-selling titles of the promotion. Good for those who missed them!

    None of these had a super price-cut: Fallout 3, Elder Scrolls, The Witcher, STALKER: Call of Prypiat, the World in Conflict. I am deeply saddened.

    That's shocking! What a sad way to end an awesome week of sales. For shame Steam, for shame.
