    I'm guessing you're gonna pay more over there vs. this summer steam sale though. Keep that in mind.

    I don't consider Steam to be DRM.

    I really enjoyed dreamfall for it's deep and thought provoking storyline yet everyone says the first was better; which I have not played so I'm really looking forward to it.

    I also picked up the broken sword trilogy, possibly for the third time, though I currently only have the third part as a physical copy. It was also 75% off.

    Broken Sword Trilogy - £2.50

    Dead Island for $10! Anyone play the co-op?

    Who doesn't like zombie-killing fun?

    Are there highres texture and lighting mods for fallout 3 and new vegas? Looks like a steal at those prices.

    Picked up Anno 2070 Collection (£30), Neuriz (DX11 CryEngine3 game for £1.99!) and Tribe Ascend (free) last night as well as the Tropico 4 demo so I'm hoping the latter turns up in the sales again as it looks pretty fun from a brief look this morning. Tribe Ascent isn't a game that would normally interest me but it was free so I thought I'd take a look. It looks extremely polished for a freebie and considering it's using the dated (IMO) Unreal Engine 3. Neuriz looks pretty slick too for a £2 game. :)

    Also, spent yesterday evening adding all my non-Steam games to my Steam library as I didn't know you could do that. You can even attach 460x215 images to them so they fit in with the rest of Steam stuff. It's terrific to have everything in one place - Game Explorer is nice but doesn't include a lot of Steam links. I've even been able to clear my desktop finally of its clutter of game icons.

    Voted for it myself as I seem to remember quite liking the 360 version but it ran horribly so got rid of it fairly quickly. The PC version should run much better... uses the Unreal Engine 3, doesn't it?

    Hey guys I just joined the Guru3D group on STEAM. All of my Real life friends seemed to have stopped upgrading their gaming PCs as of late 2005, and have moved backwards to consoles. Give me an add on STEAM! FxMercenary

    EDIT: When I get bonuses at work, I tend to get generous ( ;) )

    Hmm...deciding whether to get Krater or Gratuitous Tank Battles.
    I like both genres, but I'm against spending more than $10 a day for this sale.
    (ACR was an exception, though, heh...)


    @Darren
    TLR plays fine on PC, and none of those 'sh!tty load times' some people keep prattling about.
    It's around 3 seconds on average with my 5400RPM laptop drive.

    The only problem is when you want to apply VSync.
    NVIDIA users can force them just fine via NVIDIA Control Panel, but AMD users have to use D3DOverrider or other third-party app since CCC can't do jack sh!t.
    And IIRC it's also the same case with AA; been awhile from playing the game.

    The Last Remnant was the worst RPG I've ever played in my life, so I voted for Demigod instead.

    I'm almost positive Splinter Cell will win though.
