RAGE is a very underrated game in my view. The gameplay is actually very good, the shooting mechanics are solid and fun, the weapons enjoyable to use and the addition of vehicle combat and racing adds variety to it. It's also a very stylish looking game so long as you don't look too closely at the indoor textures. It's very Borderland-ish actually. For 5 I don't think you can go wrong with it. It's a huge 20 GB+ game though.

Can that be compared to Fallout/Skyrim gameplay wise?
Don't bother it's terrible, I couldn't even bring myself to keep playing it

On another note up to 8 in getting rid of these cards

OK, I just had an inner war whether or not to get Shogun 2 Total collection, but I realized that between Civ 5 Gold, COH complete and Napoleon: TW complete; that I will have no time for it, especially with Rome II coming out.

Anyways, here's my complete list of purchases and damage this sale:
  • Nexus: The Jupiter Incident = $3.49
  • Just Cause 2 + All DLC's = $4.72
  • Left 4 Dead 2 (I regret this one) = $4.99
  • Bully: Scholarship Edition (I asked for a refund on this) = $3.74
  • Civilization 5 Gold = $12.49
  • Company of Heroes: Complete Pack = $7.49
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution + all DLC's = $4.47
  • Half Life 2 + all Episodes = $6.47
  • Knights of the Old Republic 2 = $3.39
  • L.A. Noire: Complete (all DLC's) = $5.74
  • Napoleon: Total War Collection (all DLC's) = $7.49
  • Portal 1 and Portal 2 = $6.24
  • Universe Sandbox (gifted it to someone) = $1.99
  • Spec Ops: The Line = $6.74

Total Games: 21 (inc. major expansions)
Total damage: $79.45
Have to sell first born? = Just the Kidney

Not bad, I have more than enough to keep me entertained for the next year easily. And all this for less than the Simcity Deluxe Edition disaster.

I liked the art direction on it, if you didn't go up close to look at the textures, some areas did look down right beautiful in a brutal artistic way imo.

I ended up buying Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, War of the Roses: Kingmaker (both of sheer curiosity, more than anything else) and Age of Empires III Complete Edition ten minutes before the sale ended. I was surprised to find that Age of Empires III is 8 years old though as it seems to still be a very solid game, granted the visuals are a little dated and chunky.

Ended up buying Tomb Raider, Postal 1, Bully, Rayman and System shock 2

Also up to 10.50 on these cards now, personally I didn't see the need for them and nor do I see the need for this level up stuff

Got quite a number of games: CS: GO, Call of Juarez Gunslinger, Tomb Raider, Hitman Absolution, Surgeon Simulator and DLCs which I didn't have yet for Sleeping Dogs, Borderlands 2, Skyrim and Dishonored. Total money spent was something arround 50-60 euros, not bad for the playtime I will get.

Tried the Demo of Gunslinger, but it didn't really like how the game played.

The art style was cool tho.

Mad people, bought me a few summer sale games though.

I spent $5.00 that I had made selling cards on Civ. V Gold Upgrade. I already had the Gods and Kings expansion, but all the other DLCs were worth the expense for me. Other than that I figure I'm good until Christmas at least with what I already have (probably Xmas of 2015 lol).

It's because it's from the "rare" category. That stuff really does rarely drop.

I have exactly that background on my profile, it was a drop though, didn't knew it was worth that much.

All these will only become more rare and valuable with time, so the bigger money will be made months from now especially on the limited summer cards/backgrounds/etc. that are not obtainable anymore.

It took me 3 hours to work out why Postal didn't work for me, in case you ever come across a solid white screen, disable Afterburner OSD. You may thank me one day.

Backgrounds and other rewards related to badge crafting will likely keep losing value until the card supply dries up, unfortunately.

Anyone notice that steam requires a new update daily? Each time I load steam it constantly updates and needs to restart to apply the updates. I've been loading it once a day this week and this happens each day.

It's the NSA checking to see if your Steam games are legit.

If you are on the beta path, sure.

And you're not required to update, it just does it once you first start, if it's already running it won't update unless it's really important.
