    Put a couple of hours into the Witcher 2 and wow, the graphics are stunning. Sadly even my PC couldn't handle ubersampling and maintain 60fps (it literally halved my fps to 30) so I had to turn it off, but I left everything else on ultra and it looks amazing. I'm looking forward to putting some more time into it tomorrow.

    So far I've bought Arkham City GOTY, Arkham Asylum GOTY, BL2 Season Pass ($7.50 feck yeah!), Civ 5 Gods and Kings ($3, GMG) and Darksiders Franchise pack. If I'm in a good mood I might buy fallout 3 in the steam sale though I'm not looking forward to buying another GFWL title. Maybe Civ5 GOTY upgrade pack too.

    Is it me or is Steam upping the price on some games then applying the %xx off.
    Im dead sure Far Cry 1 was only US$9.99 before the sale (Looked at it but instead went GOG route), now its saying US$14.99 and %75 off.

    I'm positive that is the way of things each and every year. Glad I'm not the only one who spotted it.

    I guess it's like so - Raise standard price = able to apply higher % off so it appears a good deal.

    I remember last Christmas it seemed everything was more than 50% off, none of the selective crap, i almost bought hawx2 also but i missed the flash sale by 5 mins, by the time i was ready to purchase it at £2 i was notified the price had gone up to £7 odd or whatever so i didn't bother.

    Yeah steam sales are cool and all, got stupid amount of games this year through it but rest of the year i prefer to get steam keys and other digital downloads through other sites like gmg etc as steam it just so much more expensive, sometimes up to $50 more for new releases.

    From the Steam sales I have now purchased:

    Mirrors Edge
    Spec Ops: The Line
    Sleeping Dogs
    The Witcher
    The Witcher 2

    and I'm saddened that I missed Transformers: FOC.

    Amazing how Skyrim always manages to shoot to the top 5 (often 3) top sellers whenever it goes on sale even now!
