Prez's Play it Forward was a hoot last year

STAND FIRM, BROTHERS. I'd say there's a 95% chance that ARMA 2 will be discounted by at least half by the time this sale is over. (Accounting for the slim possibility they decide to continue milking this fad for all it's worth... it's been successful so far.) Don't be hasty with the pitiful 20%, only take it on the last day if you have to.
troubling thing is, i was broke before i bought these....now i'm really pushin it!

I grabbed Skyrim and The Witcher 2 at 50% and 60% off, respectively. Great deals and I doubt they will get any cheaper before the sale ends.
By the way, for anyone getting Witcher 2 in the Steam sale, you can then head over to GOG.com and enter the CD key to obtain a free copy downloadable from them as well. Reason being that the GOG version comes with a bucketload of extras, maps, soundtrack and such, plus you can plkay it offline with no Steam access. It's totally kosher to do this - they're the makers of the game and apparently like to reward buyers, no matter where they purchased it.
The same goes for Witcher #1 - they give a free offline-valid copy of that if you just enter your CD key, and it also comes with all the extras.

Tropico 4 complete
I'm eyeing The Walking Dead and might bite at Batman AC before its all over. Everything else I've either already got or doesn't interest me.

The damage so far:
Lara Croft: GoL
I'll be picking up Saints Row before it expires tomorrow. Flash sales will be the death of me yet.

Assuming that Arma2 sales are due to Summer Sale and Dayz...I have both already and I have to say Dayz is still so Beta I'm not sure what all the hubbub is about. A cool concept, sure, but it suffers from the same issues the series suffers from.
Too focused on being a "sim" and counter-intuitive controls make it a chore to play. Yes, I'm sure you can remap keys and spend time finding a community so you know the folks you're playing with, hopefully resulting in a less sparsely populated multiplayer session. But, that's a lot of effort when I have a dozen other games I could play.

I have not succumbed yet, but think I am about to take the plunge on SR3. Any DLC a must buy for it?
The season pass gets you GenkiBowl, Trouble With Clones, Gangstas In Space and the Nightblade pack. Genki is just more activites, but the Gangstas and Clones have a few missions each.
Almost everything else is either outfits or early unlocks...
