I actually felt this sale had some really good deals that were really hard to resist, but I suppose that would depend on what one is looking for. Despite the pull though, I only ended up getting Fallout: NV as I was trying to limit myself.
I use my PC mainly for strategy games and the odd PC exclusive, I play most other sorts of games on console, so that kinda limits what I'm looking for on Steam. I just find it odd that I've spent so much less on Steam than the others posted yet apparently have more hours played.

My Steam Profile

  • Worth: $832.53
  • Games owned: 51
  • Games not played: 14
  • Percentage: 27%
  • Hours spent: 883.3h
Nearly half of my hours are over just three games, BFBC2, Skyrim and Dawn of War 2.


Anyway, added Supreme Commander 2, Deus Ex Revolution (+ DLC), and Strike Suit Zero bundle. Got a decent haul from the sale at a reasonable price.

Re: Steam Sale (expected to) Starts Today

Hours played isn't exactly perfect. I have plenty of hours played from before they started counting them. But later hours are inflated as sometimes I forget to close FTL and it just sits on the main menu in the background for a day, or if a game doesn't exit cleanly a zombie process that is only visible in task manager but not on my task bar will add to my time. I know that happened with my XCOM and Plants vs Zombies tallies at the very least. I mean, I played the shit out of them, but just not quite as much as Steam claims

Re: Steam Sale (expected to) Starts Today

Robert Maxwell: Good job getting Book of Unwritten Tales!! It's a lot of fun! A bit easy.. But not crazy easy. If you like adventure games to be harder and awesome you should try Primordia. It's just fantastic.

I got too many games.. my entire wishlist was on sale. Most of those were cheap to start with. The ones i'm the most exited about would be Mars: war logs, unreal tournament goty edition and that Star Trek game.

I actually enjoyed the ST one for about.. 10 minutes.. Then Kirk kept running into a wall and would help me do anything. I would have preferred playing Solo, but it seems i will have to play online.

I'm enjoying Mars:WL so far. Interesting story and fun enough to play.

Re: Steam Sale (expected to) Starts Today

Unwritten Tales is pretty fun so far. I enjoy the sense of humor about it, although it feels like self-aware adventure games are the norm these days.

I am playing the second one now, Critter Chronicles. It's the sense of humor and Wilbur that got me to love the game.

Yeah, the playing time is wrong- no way I've played L.A. Noire for 265 hrs.

Re: Steam Sale (expected to) Starts Today

I limit myself to games under $10 on Steam, preferably under $5.

Last night I started System Shock 2.

Re: Steam Sale (expected to) Starts Today

The interface is slightly clunky, but I can see its influence on many later games.

The notion of a "year" lasting 30 seconds as a means to level-up skills was slightly silly and not what I was expecting.

The similarities to Deus Ex are clear.

Re: Steam Sale (expected to) Starts Today

Yeah, it definitely influenced a lot of later games, not the least of them being the Deus Ex and BioShock series.

I was looking for the previous CivV thread, but it looks like it fell to the Pruning God. Anywho, has anyone tried Brave New World yet? Thumbs up / down / middle ??

Cheers,
