Only thing I bought was the Tomb Raider collection when it was 75% off. £10 for all the games is a stealChris_53

Oops, forgot about that. I also just bought the original classic Tomb Raider last night :P

#52 Posted by Sword-Demon (7001 posts) -

just all the Shogun dlc and Closure

#53 Posted by Rockman999 (7232 posts) -

I only bought two games, Dark Souls and World In Conflict for a grand total of $26.49.

I'm really enjoying them.

#54 Posted by SaltyMeatballs (25158 posts) -

Chivalry Medieval Warfare.

L4D2 has been tempting me at 75% off like it usually does, but I haven't gotten it as usual (yet?)

#55 Posted by NoAssKicker47 (2847 posts) -

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
Sleeping Dogs (GMG)
Dead Island GOTY
Double Fine Bundle
Spec Ops: The Line (also on GMG)

and that's about it.

Chivalry, Assassins Creed II so far. I'm thinking about getting Tropico, would you guys say it's worth 5 bucks?
#57 Posted by Flubbbs (3508 posts) -

#58 Posted by R4gn4r0k (17469 posts) -

So the sale is almost at it's end (it end's on the 5th), and I know I have bought at least 15 games or sofor about 30$, and they are all fantastic. What has everyone been buying?

samusownsyou123

You have played all 15 already ?:P

What games did you buy ?

I bought 4, was planning to buy 2 and have played 2 of them. I bought:

  • Darksiders franchise pack: already had Darksiders 1 which I still have to finish
  • The Walking Dead: have yet to play it
  • Chivalry: awesome, awesome online action game
  • Tropico 4: pretty good city builder, without always on DRM thank you very much:)

#63 Posted by Elann2008 (33028 posts) -

I don't think I picked up anything yesterday. Oh yeah, just one game that I gifted. I'm like a hamster hoarding up games :lol:. I even bought Deus Ex: HR missing link DLC that I've put off forever.. and now that I have it; I know already that I'm not going to touch it in a long time.

Now, I'm just looking at Command and Conquer 3 to be $5, or else forget it. Far Cry 3 has kept me busy and I hope to get around to using DarthMod for Empire Total War (collection). :)

#64 Posted by ultimate-k (2348 posts) -

---

Is there a reason Assault on Dark Athena never gets a larger sale than 50%? Feel like I've waited quite a few steam sales for it to get higher.

#66 Posted by x-2tha-z (8904 posts) -
I didn't buy anything from Steam. This sale wasn't very good, IMO.
#67 Posted by Toxic-Seahorse (4318 posts) -
Did we really need another thread for this?
#68 Posted by Metallic_Blade (259 posts) -

I bought nothing. Part of that is due to it being a digital-only medium. I like to have my physical copies last forever, and not feel like I'm just owning some air.

Well good for you. I liek owning physical copies but I'm not going to find a physical copy of Mass Effect 2 for $5.
#70 Posted by ZimpanX (12636 posts) -

I got the following

Dawn of War - Platinum
Fable: The Lost Chapters
F.E.A.R. + Expansions

The entire sale has been pretty lackluster.
#73 Posted by AFBrat77 (24219 posts) -

Here's what I ended up getting this Holiday:

1. Portal 2 (11/24) = $4.99

2. Batman Arkham City GotY (12/27) = $7.49

3. Deus Ex: Human Revolution (12/31) = $4.99

4. Painkiller: Black Edition (01/03) = $2.49

5. Thief II: The Metal Age (01/03) = $2.49

6. Bastion (01/03) = $3.74

I'm quite pleased, for a little over $26 I got quite a diverse well respected collection of games I would say. I keep missing Skyrim at 75% off, but hell, I haven't even finished Morrowind yet!

I also considered The Witcher 2, Bioshock 2, KotOR 2, Max Payne 3, and some of the add-on packs for Empire: Total War, but I either didn't think they would run on my PC or I figured I'd get them next time.

From Gog.com I picked up Zeus + Poseidon (packaged together), 2 of the most respected city-building games. Again, quite diverse from my Steam purchases.

#74 Posted by klusps (10385 posts) -

Bought Sleeping Dog on GMG for $11, 2 copies of Torchlight 2 for my friend, Dishonored on GMG for $25(with use of GMG credit), and BF3 Premium for $20. The Steam sale has been rather disappointing lately for me but I might get a few more things before the sale ends.

#75 Posted by Maddie_Larkin (6759 posts) -

The Monkey Island SE Bundle

How about The Secret World for $22.49? And if you have a $5 voucher left, it would be even cheaper. Cheers.

Rage is on sale. The full game is now cheaper than the new Scorchers DLC. That's quite strange.
#83 Posted by Chris_53 (5134 posts) -
Just bought StarWars knights of the Old Republic for like £1.75, ive never played this before and to be honest im not much of a Star Wars fan, but my brother insisted that I get it but at this price, I cant go wrong

Great game. I get the complaints about the game being boring, because it kind of is at first, but about two hours in it really picks up. I enjoyed it a lot.
#85 Posted by whiskeystrike (12096 posts) -

Mirror's Edge

Walking Dead

Spec Ops The Line

To The Moon

Legend of Grimrock

Borderlands 2

Max Payne 3

With this in addition to the backlog of games I haven't even got around to playing from the Summer sale I think I'm pretty much set for the year.

#87 Posted by Rattlesnake_8 (18415 posts) -
All I bought was Sniper Ghost Warrior for $1.99. I'll probably buy CS:GO when it's down to $2.50.. I bought a lot during the last sales so not much I wanted this time around. RUSE is on sale for $5 so I'll probably pick that up too.

anyone want to trade a game for Don't Starve?

#99 Posted by Will47 (6824 posts) -
I got some from Amazon as well, they had good sales this year. Amazon: Dark Souls Syndicate Steam: Ace of Spades Mark of the Ninja Plus I got Sleeping Dogs when Steam had that error today that put it down to $4.50. Overall its the least amount of games I've got from a Steam sale in a long time.
#100 Posted by Toxic-Seahorse (4318 posts) -

All I got was Mass Effect 2 DD from steam for $7.50 and Mass Effect 3 DD from Origin for $20. I'm actually really proud of myself for not buying a bunch of games I will never play.
