I just finished this game and it was badass! Beautiful game maxed out, with just enough stalkerish action gameplay to satisfy me.

I'm curious to know your rig specs. I remember reading it was not enjoyable maxed out on a GTX480.

THQ was selling the game for $10 a while back. Pretty good deal.

Ouch. How the hell did I miss that one? Must have been while I was on my yearly road trip to the wild Northeast.

Even worse/better... it was part of the THQ pack which was on sale for peanuts last sale. I got the whole pack for 25 which included this.

Sure, sure... it just seems like I read the sentence "waiting on a Steam sale" constantly lately.

I say it all the time...for reasons 1-4.

I can't recall the last time I bought a PC game in a box...and my list of purchased and yet-to-be-played games stretches back to the Steam Xmas sales, so I am starting to cut pretty close to the bone before I'll buy another game. But if it's on sale on Steam for a massive discount, I'll buy it in anticipation of finding the time to play sometime next decade.

And yet Valve insist that their Steam sales don't effect the number of people buying at full price.

I'm not sure that Frijoles waiting for a Steam sale suggests that he would have otherwise bought the game at full price. Hell, you can just remove "Steam" from his statement if you want. If he's heard good things about the game but is still waiting for it to be on sale, it probably means the following:

1) He doesn't have enough expendable cash to pay full price.
2) He doesn't believe that the good things he's heard about the game are worth paying full price.
3) He's played the game and doesn't feel it is worth full price.

No matter the case, the lack of a Steam sale wouldn't necessarily make him pay full price for the game.

4) There are just too many other games to play right now, so why not wait for it to be on sale, buy it, and play it later?

Got two copies of this free with my GTX 480s. I've not gotten around to playing it yet. I'll have to get on it.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

Wow, I bet two of the three people who bought this game are looking forward to this DLC.
Considering the game sold enough copies to warrant a sequel, your numbers are probably off.
