Except for a game that is suppose to be about shooting guns they made almost all the weapons a inaccurate as possible, the pistol is the best weapon in the game.

I didn't really have any problems with the accuracy. It's a lot more realistic when compared to games like CoD where you have 100% accuracy when using the sights.

The pixelation on gore was rather silly with no way to turn it off.

I thought it suited the style well. The whole game is depicted as if there's a camera guy following the player, documentary style. As such, the censoring of gratuitous gore makes sense.

Today only, Indie Story Pack for $5 at steam:
http://store.steampowered.com/sub/6790/

Items included:

And Yet It Moves
Gish
Jolly Rover
Puzzle Agent
Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale

That one game ALONE is worth $5. I wanted it but didn't want to pay the $20 for it. I had a ton of fun with this game. Steam has a demo.
Here's a trailer (since steam stupidly doesn't have one on their page):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmRN3AFRbZA

You can bet I jumped on this sale in a heartbeat, and bought some for friends too.

That GoGamer I sent in has Wings of Prey for 12.90 and Dead Rising 2 for 20.00!

Both auto buys if you do not have them.

I disagree. K&L2 is a pretty solid third-person, cover-based shooter. It's not going to be considered a classic by any means but the unique style and narrative make it worth a go at $5.

The "style" is perhaps the only redeeming thing about the game, at least they included the option to turn on steady cam, that artificial camera shake was just headache inducing.

Note: You have to have at least 10 games in your wishlist to be in the running for the top 5 free contest.

Thank you, and to those in the previous thread that mentioned it... I would not have gone through the small print, or even the large print, to find this...

I had a hell of a time adding 10 games to my wish list last night, and it seems most of the ones I DO want aren't on steam, or available for pre-order at least (Guild Wars 2)...

As for the 'hell'... 2 reasons... The site was running horribly when I was trying to do it, so I had to retry every page ~2.3 times... And finding 10 games I want, but haven't already gotten, is tough...

Thinking about picking up Cities XL. Since I own the previous version on Steam I can get Cities 2011 for $9.99. Not sure if it's worth it for $10. Haven't heard too many good things about this game.

EVE Online is also a good deal for $5 too bad you can not use the code for existing accounts.

Batman on the other hand is a steal at $10. A fantastic port too and the GFWL stuff manages to stay out of the way which is good.
