For a moment I was thinking there was a GoW Steam release, and that would've been awesome! But I guess you just meant to post in the "What was the last game you played" thread instead of the Steam store one.

YAY!

steam has always been a hassle for me. :(
going back to Direct2Drive I guess. the only prob with them is their limited selection but everything else is perfect.

There's also individual ONE DAY deals. GTA 4 is $7.50 and StalkerSOC is $1.99 as of right now.

Re: The steam store thread
 
i almost want to buy stalker again for that price.

Delicieuxz 12-23-2009 05:31 AM

Re: The steam store thread
 
I just bought:

GTA IV (sold my original dvd copy within 2 weeks of purchasing it after finding it disappointing)
Jedi Knight Collection
Space Quest Collection
King's Quest Collection

I couldn't help it. I got the rockstar pack, telltale everything pack, fallout 3, final fantasy XI (yeah, not very popular among the MMO fans, but I loved it), and I am about to grab the Space Quest and King's Quest collections. I LOVED those games!

thefly 12-23-2009 02:30 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
This is not good. I'm never going to play/finish all these games. So why must I keep buying? :(

So far:

GTA 4
Trine
Ghostbusters
Stalker (already had this, but $2.00?)
id Pack

Damien_Azreal 12-23-2009 03:23 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
There are a couple games I'd like to have, like Red Faction: Guerrilla and Legendary.

Wish I would've seen that sale on GTA IV coming, have a physical copy that I got from Target a few weeks ago, but now that Steam has it for $7.50...I'm regretting it to the upteenth degree.

Thief 12-23-2009 04:30 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
Wow...screw you, Steam! :mad:

So far:
Trine
Titan Quest
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood
Shadowgrounds Pack

Got GTA4 so far. Nothing else really caught my eye at the moment. But we'll see about the next Special Deals.

Anybody else having an awful time DLing this game? Mine has been going on for about 6 hours now and I'm only half-way through, DLing with about 2-300kb/s. Normally I can DL from Steam with around 700kb/s. :o

That's a good one, I wish I had people to play it with. Everybody buy Titan Quest Gold!

Yup. I got the error message "the Steam servers are too busy to handle your request at the moment." Guess the sale is going really, really well. :dopefish:

I bought 8 copies of Judge Dredd. One for me and 7 gifts. :p

F**king awesome. :D That's what it was.

ZuljinRaynor 12-23-2009 08:40 PM

I gifted another copy. :p

Re: The steam store thread
 
hmmm, some nice offerings indeed...

I'm not so sure about getting Serious Sam:HD for 10 gold... you think it is worth it?

Steve 12-24-2009 02:30 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
It's worth it.

People are having trouble with their credit\debit cards on steam. It's being hit so hard at the moment :(

8IronBob 12-24-2009 03:31 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
Yeah, plus they have the id Super Pack for less than $24 now, from what I see...that's about a third of MSRP, which sounds rather decent. Hopefully those will be some of id's better games, and not the so/so games from more recent times.

ZuljinRaynor 12-24-2009 05:05 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
I bought id pack for my best friend and like 3 more copies of Judge Dredd.

Damien_Azreal 12-24-2009 05:09 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
I was going to take advantage of the STEAM sales, and buy SS:HD for Zulie... but nope. STEAM has decided it hates my credit card.
Had almost convinced myself to get Legendary for myself... but nope. STEAM hates me.

Jiminator 12-24-2009 05:17 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
you picking up dredd for mp only, or is the sp any good? reason I asked because I picked it up also...

ZuljinRaynor 12-24-2009 05:33 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
SP is decent if you come in thinking it's gonna be the worst thing ever. It's decent. It's not awesome or anything but it's fun if you like simple shooters. The levels are barebone though.

JAB 12-24-2009 05:56 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
Couldn't resist purchasing the id Pack. And whoa, is that one a filler in the My Games menu :o

Waiter 12-24-2009 06:27 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
Dang, I'm already in bed, but after reading this thread I'll have to fire up the laptop. :o



/edit:

Meh, missed the GTA IV deal. :mad:

There are a couple of games I am going to buy, but I'll wait to see what the upcoming daily offers will bring. Good thing about Steam is that you don't have to worry about them going out of stock. :p

NutWrench 12-26-2009 01:08 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
Damn. 22 hours left. What should I buy?

Sailboat 12-26-2009 01:36 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
I have personally bought S.T.A.L.K.E.R Shadow of Chernobyl and The Witcher Enhanced Edition for a grand total of about $15 USD when they were on sale... damn good deal if you ask me.
Now I am debating whether or not to buy Dragon Age, seeing as it is on sale today. I still have 21 hours left to decide though, but I most likely will be picking it up sometime today :)

Sang 12-26-2009 02:58 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
I bought Hitman: Blood Money :)

NutWrench 12-26-2009 08:27 PM

Re: The steam store thread
 
Bought Borderlands. Downloading now . . .

Sang 12-27-2009 09:35 AM

Re: The steam store thread
 
Nice, we'll have to coop it sometime! :p

Haven't had any bad luck getting things from Steam here, that I'm aware of. Not sure what your trouble is, Damien.
