    Go in with a tonne of salt and a very open mind, or prepare to be infuriated by foreign controls and bored to tears when you immediately die from buggy zombies or shot by the first person to join the server and find a DMR.
    After that period of mind-grating suicide, the fun begins.

    Loads, specifically on the DayZ thread! I havent played in a while, usually just with 2 or 3 IRL friends.

    In East Mids its about 28 outside, but I have air conditioning in my office!

    prices change day to day, every 8 hours. General rule of thumb, dont buy anything unless its a flash sale or community choice, those times are when it is at its cheapest. if it doesnt go on either of those, it wont get cheaper so buy it on the last day.

    I wanted Far Cry 3 but I didn't want to spend the $25 :(

    Maybe it'll come back again cheaper, but I doubt it.

    I think I went a bit overboard, spent around $200 on the steam sale so far.

    At this rate I may need to sell my car. :p

    Got Witcher 2?

    Awesome game, I'd definitely recommend it if not.

    Ridiculously demanding though, one of the few games that most of us can't max at 60 fps, actually, I'm not sure if anything maxes it at 60 fps yet. (Never sen any benchmarks claiming a card has done so, at least not with ubersampling turned on.)

    Witcher 2 was $4.99 a couple days ago, not sure if it is still on sale though.

    It's perfectly playable on weaker rigs, just, not with ubersampling enabled.

    GTX 580 went from a stable 60, to 25ish fps with that one setting enabled.

    Not sure what resolution it renders at when using it, but the basic idea is that it renders the image at multiple times the shown resolution, and is then downsized. It basically results in the same effect as AA, but much better.

    So essentially it'll play fine at 1080p with ubersampling off, whereas with it on might for example be more like rendering it at 4k res, and then downscaling it to 1080P.

    EDIT: Checked, it's $9.99 currently, not a "bad" price, and a price I'd still happily pay for the game if I didn't already own it, but not as good as the $4.99 I saw a couple days ago.

    The games I'm really pining over are War Game and World in Conflict. War Game is on sale for $20 and WiC for $6.50. Too bad I just blew $9 on the stinker Ace Combat. Oh, and Terraria is only $2.50. I'd like to buy 20 copies of it, spread them out on the floor, and roll in them like a dog;)

    I just bought that as well.

    85% off was too much to pass up.

    I owned Deus EX: HR on PS3, but for $5.99 I'll happily own it twice, especially since my laptop can make it look much better than my PS3 could ever hope to.

    Is Sniper Elite V2 worth it? Friend and I beat Nazi Zombies, considering there's only 5 levels...got 7 hours worth, might go back and play higher difficulty.
