    Valve has announced that every game in the Steam store is now on sale. Titles in the catalog are discounted between 10% and 50%, which means you can now get games like The Orange Box for $38, BioShock for $41, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl for $22. The sale ends January 1st, so start shopping now.

    You can get quite a few games through Steam that I wouldn't have thought about.

    Those are actually really good prices on those games. I am not a fan of Steam, but that is tempting to even me.

    It works universally. You just have to pay the dollar equivalent of its price in your home currency using your credit card.

    Going to buy two copies of Race 07, one for me, one for my brother, so he can play with his new gaming PC :)

    Actually, might also buy myself Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines and X3 Reunion, they're both at $10. This isn't a steal, this is just awesome.

    My steam folder is 30gb+ so its hard to back it all up but i have backed up some games seperate.

    The other thing i like is,if you reinstall windows.Just install steam again to your games partition were the steam folder is,and all the games just work again without having to dl them all again.Niiice

    Yeah but if your drive goes kaput, 30 GB of data would be too dear. Back-up is insurance....you can always re-download the game resources from Steam though.....30 GB.....make your choice....we're just talking 5 Dual-layer DVDs here ;)

    five discs, tigger, that's all five DL DVD's. Saves lot of trouble of re-downloading 30 GB. I'd hate myself after having lost that much data and having to re-download it (and not having made a backup) ;)

    I so wish I was able to get broadband back in time for Yule, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. I'll have to use a friends a PC to see if I can get Opposing Fronts and some others that take my fancy.

    Gotta love Steam... now it's not the bile of wank it used to be.
