:( looks like I missed the Fallout 3 and Civ 5 deals.. I'm still eying the Bethesda pack... That seems like a pretty good deal, no? Esp since I've been waiting for a chance to play Fallout 3...

Why does Activision think that Call of Duty 4 is still worth $30? Steam is running a sale on it for $15, but that should be the normal price. It's more than three years old and there have been three CoD games since then. I'm glad I bought it used for less than $10 last year.

I agree! I'm sort of appalled that 15 is the sale pricee. May get my brother to buy it so we can frag each other on MP though.
edit: Also buying JC2 and Assasin's Creed 2 at those prices. and plant vs zombie

Is Assasin's Creed 2 worth buying at all?

Just got Trials 2, and this thing sucks!! US$2,50 wasted on a terrible game. I wonder if any of the guys that made this crap actually rode a bike in their lifes?

I won't consider buying any single player game that requires a always on connection, but that just me :) .

Oh, forgot that.. But is it worth it content-wise?

Can't comment too much on AC2, but AC1 was fun for the first bit then became very repetitive. The gameplay was very simple as well.

AC2 on the PS3 was a lot more fun for me than AC1... For some reason I was more enamored of the story line in AC2 than AC1

Snagged Lara Croft, Burnout Paradise, Resident Evil 5, Just Cause 2 so far! Hope they put Street Fighter 4 on sale again, missed it the last time because Steam blocked my credit card(auto blocked when you spend over a certain limit within a small time period - thanks to the TF2 store and my unboxing craze). By the time they unblocked it, the sale was over.:evil: SF4 is difficult to get here in India and it was priced at Rs. 2500 - what a rip-off! :x

my brother's filling up his 750 gig HDD on this :D He's down to 120 gigs free. He's thinking of buying another terabyte one.
I wonder if Seagate, WD et al subsidize this :lol:

They made it optional. You generally only see it marked on games that do well. I think some game developers would like to not have to worry about the accountability that Metacritic brings.

I'm considering Darksiders, anyone got that ? The comparison of Legend of Hellda looks interesting :P .

Anyone played Wings of Prey? 78/100 on Metacritic. Sounds like it could be good; I've been looking for a good combat flight sim since TIE Fighter.

Aight, who's played Borderlands? Is it a good game? Is it a FPS?
Also, is the GoTY edition worth the extra $10?

Borderlands is an absolute blast. I would definitely get it with the DLC packages.

and I just bought New Vegas.
I'm going to have to schedule my gaming over the next year to catch up. I think I'm done for the season with buying.
I may also need to buy a bigger hard drive now :oops:

Hah! If you think Civ 5 is expensive when it's not on sale, have a look at http://www.steamprices.com/au/search?civilization+v. $US80 in Australia (where I live), compared with thirty quid in the UK! I'd like it, but not at that sort of price disparity! Even with 25% off, it's still priced massively over the odds. Think I'll go out and pick up a board game or two instead.
