Oh boy, here we go again...

Steam Holiday Sale, the full thing again, 24 hour daily deals, 8 hour flash sales, vote choices.

Runs 19th December to 3rd January.

Which will most likely make me destitute...


Post your buys in here so we can all drool over your big balls/cash spending. ;)


First ones today have nothing VERY interesting in them, except perhaps MetalGear Rising. Anyone knows something about that one?

Ok, so here we are back again... :P

Seeing as the rest was on the temp forums, let's post this again. Seems like a couple of us got Endless Space. It is quite a nice game, can be played quickly in between things but definitely has the "1 more turn" bug. :)

Rest on Steam so far was more or less uninteresting, although Rome II was 50% off or something today.

Mass effect 1 & 2

:D :D :D :D

The Mass Effect series is in my top 5 best games ever list, others up there are Dragon Age Origins, Neverwinter's Night 2 and Baldur's Gate 2. Wait, all Bioware... spot the trend. :P

If you haven't played them yet Tugger, ME has a ridiculous high replay value (Paragon/Renegade, Male, Female, romance one of the companions, romance another...). ME1 is the trailblazer, great story but compared to 2 and 3 it nowadays feels a tiny bit dusty, especially the Mako planet drop missions (tip, if you do not want to slash your wrists, only go after the main goal on those maps and ignore the random other things out there, driving the Mako is a really bad experience, at least they got rid of it later). ME2 is in my eyes perhaps the best of the MEs, if you can reduce them to a simple listing, which you can't really. (pro tip: leave the "Aquire Reaper IFF" mission until you did ALL the side-stories, it sets you on a time critical path. Also fully upgrade the Normandy, except the Med Bay upgrade which is stupid). ME2 had perhaps the highest replay rate of all 3. ME3 (which you definitely should get, too. It's only on Origin though, no Steam version, but cheap currently over there too) has the greatest story telling in my eyes, although people will argue long and hard about the ending, I actually kinda liked it. Also I very much like the dark and desperate tone of the story, which really gets it across that you are fighting an absolutely superior foe who is out to crush you. As a matter of fact, I am currently in another playthrough of the series, currently in the middle of ME3 with a paragon male Shepard. ME3 also has a fun fast paced Multiplayer shooter part which actually helps you in your single player campaign.

I wasn't impressed with Far Cry 3. It was awesome for the first few hours, but then got tedious and repetitive, and the end of the story was just weird.

On a better note, I finally picked up Skyrim with all the DLC's for $20.50!

I would argue that Farcry 3 has the best storyline and stongest character set of any game I've ever played. That alone makes it amazing. But each to their own. However if you draw the same conclusion with Skyrim, im just going to presume youre trolling and/or you are an idiot so your viewpoint will be nullifed in future.
