    Went ahead and got Stalker.

    Now for the "Absolute texture packs" would that just be the Nature + Structure ones, along with AtmosFear 2.1?

    Yes, the Autumn texture config is what I used. I only used the blowout from Atmosfear, however. The main mod looked too washed out for my taste. Give it a try and see if you like it.

    Many empires have believed that (well, that not steam takes over the world but).
    I'll still go with physical media if I can..

    Same here. No luck on being able to gift the extra Chernobyl either. Oh well.

    Also... The Star Wars pack was the greatest deal for me yet. With 3 boys that's nearly 1500 +Dad rep for $5.00. :wanker: Hopefully it will be enough to cover Not buying SWtFU for them if it doesn't pop up for $7.50 in the last couple days of the sale. I refuse to pay any more than that for those 3 hour long excuse of a coaster Force Unleashed games. :bang:

    Nah they will be lol. Factory made CDs last a long time.

    On the topic of Steam though, why would something go away when it's making tons of money? Not even a sign of weakness shown that I can see as of yet.

    Oh they likely will. I still have a couple of cds from 1993 and they work without problems.

    Just got Stalker bundle for 5 $. Years ago, I played and finished the first. Played the second and my saves got corrupted half way through (rrrgggg) and I didn't feel like starting it over. I Started the 3rd one once and was really annoyed by getting killed in a SECOND. Also, the lack of bullet impact is lame. It's like you just count the times you hit 'em and in the end they just fall; they don't even fall with momentum; they just fall. Lame.
    But, for 5 $, I'm willing to give the 3rd one (Call of Pripyat) a chance, especially with my new CPU/mobo/RAM/SSD. I hope it is good...

    Yeah shimyns, it's kinda a disappointing game overall, even with Stalker Complete.

    Yeah, the Far Cry 2 deal is pretty nice, be a good addition to any collection, RA3 for 5$ also, but not so great a addition, but for those looking to expand their collection.

    I personally think 5 bucks is to much for FarCry 2. I feel ripped off having bought the game when it was released... such a meh game.

    new years = alcohol + automatic steam buying with saved credit card info = too many games bought = very hurt head/tummy/wallet

    FarCry 2 was a huge disappointment for me.....but the stalker games are all good.....CoP was my best game of 2010 personally.

    I loved STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, and was really disappointed with Clear Sky. I own CoP but haven't played it. So, I can't comment on it. But from the people I know that have played it... they say it's just as good as SoC if not better.

    Is Supreme Commander 2 any good? Can it be played with a gamepad? ...no gamepad witch-hunt, please. Just a yes-or-no if possible.
