    I enjoyed Sniper Elite v2 and Nazi Zombie Army, they definitely get my recommendation.

    I actually recently started replaying v2 and will replay Zombie Army after that.

    OK, so far Max Payne 3, Rise of the Triad (pre-release), Metro 2033, BioShock Infinite, and Juarez Gunslinger. Got what I consider to be good prices.

    Bought Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 a couple of days ago, get about 2 minutes in then the game crashes, literally constantly crashes. Waste of money :<

    You are not alone. I tried the game out only to discover that I have 101 issues with it. Whether dx9 or 11, I can't get it to run right, at all: I can't load the game half the time, can't set my resolution correctly, enemies and friendlies are invisible, and in dx9, everything is completely a mess graphically. Waste of money!



    Anyhow,
    Anyone have an opinion on Aliens Colonial Marines for $12.49? I recall all the horrible talk, review, criticism on release, but I haven't heard much lately. If it's as bad as everyone said, I'll pass til it's like $5-7

    Apparently the game is quite a bit of fun with friends if you can overlook the little journalism quips with the low res textures and dodgy alien AI. I know a lot of people who bought it anyway, and had a lot of fun. Not something you'd play for hours on end, more of an arcade game to play when you and your friends need a break from the grind of AAA titles.
    I recommend keeping your eye on Interstellar Marines, I bought into the alpha.

    I bought Interstellar marines, It's a bit of a wip but I'm hoping it turns into something really good.

    The ambience is phenominal. I love it when the time turns to evening and everything gets really dark and you're searching for the enemy team in pitch black. You can either use your torch and be revealed or go in all stealthy and try to spot them in the night light.

    Maybe we can team up and annihilate all the others :D

    Yeah I bought it on the day it got early access on steam! Very simplistic at the moment, but it looks like it could have a very promising finished product. I'll be online on steam tonight!

    Sent you a friend invite :)

    I agree it does play very simple at the mo' but it's got potential. No jump though, hope they fix that soon, it's kinda annoying.

    I was looking at that in depth, and seriously thinking of buying all in now, but hesitant since it's not finished and you're basically banking on a good end product eventually. So you'd reccomend it definately?

    I'd wait, right now it has a very basic multiplayer, team deathmatch with 1 weapon, everybody looks the same and only one map, but you have visors, flashlight, and laser sight toggles. The envrionment and ambience and atmosphere is fully flegded and MY GOD ITS SO FREAKING AWESOME. From the gameplay videos I've seen with alien sharks it looks really good, but that was a demo.
    I cant recommend something that isnt finished, so invest at your own peril. You're paying for at best an hour or two worth of multiplayer fun, then you sit back and wait for more content really. There's the option to wander around the maps they've made without multiplayer, and a tech demo map showing off their ambient lighting (which is best discovered by playing a deathmatch for an hour, hunting in darkness is so much fun).

    If you get it, play a multiplayer match, sit back and wait for the sunset to disappear and then hunt in the darkness. That was when the game sold itself to me.

    Hmm Mount & Blade and Arkham City look like buys for me. Still haven't finished Arkham Asylum though. :/

    Deus Ex is a great deal if you don't already own it.

    Sniper Ghost Warrior 2

    Man, I bought Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 a couple of days ago myself and it plays flawlessly. And I have a lesser system than you.
    It actually plays very nicely for me. Dunno what the big differences would be?...

    But I only play 1600x900 on advanced settings>high settings. I haven't tried very high yet.
    I got it on sale and for the few dollars I paid, no complaints.

    I'm getting kind annoyed that they keep putting the same titles on sale over and over again instead of putting different things on sale. I have one game left that I really want to buy, but I'm not going to buy it at nearly full price, even if they went to 40% off I'd buy it, but at 10% off no way(especially since it is still technically an Alpha).

    Yes! Why is it still stuck at 10% but Xcom and DeusEx have both gone down to 75% at least twice?!
