    That ultimate indie bundle looks amazing and will suit my new Steam Bog Picture rig in the living room. Built it on a AMD A-10 CPU and 8GB 2133MHz RAM for performance boost. It plays Crysis @ 720p at medium to high with 2xaa and keeps above 30fps all the time. Well impressed the indie bundle will be a great purchase :)

    Could you be more specific in what you are looking for in a strategy game? Shogun 2 is probably the most polished and well rounded version of all vanilla (unmodded) Total War games, but Total War games have this unique real time combat system that you may instantly love or be put off by...

    Most casual strategy fans love the movie-like atmosphere of its 10,000+ troops battles, but if you are looking for something akin to Starcraft 2's multiplayer community, then you will find the game bit lacking; Shogun 2 does have decent multiplayer community, but the overall game balance and rather sluggish unit control at larger army setting (watching this game being played at small/medium army size hurt my metaphorical soul) means not as polished and developed multiplayer setting as say, Starcraft 2.

    Thanks for the reply but I downloaded the demos of Empire and Shogun 2 after I posted that and ended up buying the complete collection. Seems like its my type of game.

    You probably won't regret it... it's very popular for good reasons :D

    Don't forget to check out some really amazing mods for Medieval 2 Total War! It has this really awesome Lord of the Ring mod and bunch of other stuff.

    KOTOR collection was for 75% when I first checked and then it went up to 50% off?! **** it ..

    edit; If I access the American site in my browser it changes to 75% off in my steam client too. Refresh and it goes back to 50% off for the UAE store? dafuq is going on?!

    How come the Fallout games haven't gone on sale ... tomorrow is the last day for new deals right?

    edit2; http://store.steampowered.com/?cc=us actually lets me buy in the American prices and from their catalogue without any VPNs .. nice :p

    Good luck getting RAGE to run properly on an AMD GPU. The game literally is an Nvidia benchmark game. With GTX480 I got 60fps all the time max settings @ 1080p with 8xAA and with my 7970GHz max settings (gpu transcode disabled obviously) I get a few frame drops, a little stutter, and quite a lot of texture pop-in.

    Have no idea why i purchased Mass effect collection. I'll probably never play them, but for $10 i didn't want to risk the idea that one day i'll want to play them. But i'm so behind with what i got and likely never a ME 3 on Steam...i feel guilty right now, like i cheated on my wallet with another wallet and the tan stained leather rubbed off on my hand as if some STD, it's horrible really.
