    That´s what i love Valve, they know how to make holiday deals like no one (of course that the deals are made by the publishers and developers, but Steams is Valve´s house, so kudos to...errr...everyone).

    I just got FEAR 2, Prince of Persia 2008 and Super Meat Boy for just 12€ ($15 give or take).

    Forget what i said before....I HATE STEAM....I HATE THE HOLIDAYS.......it´s making my wallet dry :csad: :woot: :o

    I wanted two games that i still haven´t got...The Witcher and Dragon Age, the last one is even more pathetic because i adore Bioware.
    The Witcher Enhanced Edition is on sale today :awesome:...i just hope they get Dragon Age Ultimate Edition next (which i´m very hopeful, like i was the Witcher, because both sequels are coming next year).

    I purchased Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light for -76 off.
    £2.40. Peanuts. It's funny how practically every publisher is on a massive discount apart from Activision's at the moment. Modern Warfare 2 is still sitting at £10 more than the average price of a pc game even after Black Op's is released.

    Yeah I think I'm going to pick up Lara Croft. I've never actually played one of those before but the co-op and the top-down view coupled with actually good reviews interest me.

    They interest me a lot damn it.

    I bought PuzzleQuest, then kind of kicked myself when I realized I'd downloaded it on the 360 in the past. No big, it was only $1.50, but kind of stupid of me. I also bought Recettear for $6.50. Don't know, just wanted something a little different and that seemed to fit the bill.

    Alpha Protocol's a pretty bad port, even at a discount it's probably not worth picking up.

    That as the best deal EVA!

    I bought the Eidos pack (which included every Eidos game on Steam and all the DLC for each) for 75$. It's usually 600...

    Thank you Steam!!!

    I bought Fallout Vegas, the other, it's probably one of the best RPG's I've played in while. I installed it on Christmas day just to check that it was working and basically spend most of Christmas and boxing day playing it for 17 hours over the last two days or so. After Alpha Protocol and Fallout 3, I wasn't expecting much, so that was a nice surprise.

    Another day i don´t care about.

    I already have Crysis and Warhead, in fact, i just finished Crysis two days ago on Delta.....amazing game.
    I have already have Doom 3 and expansion
    I already have Kings Bounty and Armored Princess

    Section 8...even at 1.99€...is probably not worth it.

    The only two games i might get if they get on sale (which i believe they will) is Football Manager 2011 and Mafia II

    Just bought Half-Life Complete for $5.99.

    All Half-Life games are 75% off, and 85% if you own one of the Left 4 Deads.

    Left 4 Dead 2
    Overlord II

    and if we count last month, during the Black Friday sales, it makes 14 games in 2 months: Warhammer 40.000 Dawn of War II Warhammer 40.000 Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising and Prototype
