    Then why's ID listed as one of the developers? http://store.steampowered.com/app/10000

    Though, considering Quake Wars has been marked down to only $15, might just get it separately, it's still kinda crappy of them. :p

    I really want Bioshock but it has issues with Vista 64 at least for me. I tried the demo and it crashed on my system.

    I definitely plan on getting some of this:

    Portal for $5
    Bioshock for $5
    Unreal 3 for $10
    HL: Blue Shift for $0.99
    HL: Opposing Force $0.99

    Thats like $25 (after tax) for 5 games. Crazy good deal.

    To bad I am still waiting on parts for my gaming rig :cry:

    this sale is more of a short term fix for teh euro prices, well non holidays sales in US is way cheaper than non holidays sales in EU

    so EU prices now is like what is SHOULD be in EU prices compared to US prices

    1€ ≠ 1$ (1euro1us)

    I'm so close to buying The Witcher Enhanced Version. Only thing holding me back is a $25 gift card at BB. I might have to pick up Bioshock too.
