I picked up Saints Row the Third for the summer sale. I'm kind of surprised... it's actually good... better than GTA, IMO.
Get your games from GOG DAMMIT!

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.

One of the best games last year. Having skipped SR1 & 2 based on all the negative feedback, I was very surprised that SR3 was getting an excellent response and grabbed it around xmas on GMG for $20. Just grabbed most of the DLC today, so thinking Im going to jump back in for some more.

Hey, at least some of them are good sequels.


I picked up Saints Row the Third for the summer sale. I'm kind of surprised... it's actually good...

It's got a great sense of humor to it. The story is goofy and may not always make sense, but it's just a setup for whatever fun they want you to do next. I snagged most of the DLC I didn't have for cheap, too...

So... The Darkness 2 for 12.50 on Steam today. Worth it for single-player only?

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.

The damage so far:

Grimrock
Lara Croft: GoL
Renegade Ops
Batman: AC

I'll be picking up Saints Row before it expires tomorrow. Flash sales will be the death of me yet.

I was thinking 10 bucks but that's not much higher. I just hesitate because every game these days seems to have singleplayer that clocks in under 6 hours.

Yeah, after the first two Saint's Row games, SR3 is a really pleasant surprise. I like the silly 'street gang as a media empire' premise, the over-the-top weaponry and activities, the vehicle customization...

The world isn't quite as nicely crafted as GTA4's, but eh, it's more fun.

So far, all I've picked up is:

Trine 2
Saint's Row 3
Left 4 Dead 2

So far I've totalled up, in no particular order: Magicka complete pack, Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, and Left 4 Dead 2 (I still resent it, though!)

It's a 6 hour game. A very fun 6 hours to be sure, but yea...

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...

I was quite a fan of Darkness II. Slick presentation, interesting story, good pacing, and frenetic, bloody combat.

But if you add up the price of those three individually and the base game, or the season pass plus base game, turns out its better just to get the complete pack for $24 which contains ALL the dlc (except one most recently released costume one) as well as the base game.

It's pretty impressive that Arma2 has managed to stay near the top of the charts throughout the summer sale, despite having a relatively weak discount.

I got Batman AC, Saints Row 3rd, Space Marine, Hard Reset and Dead Island so far. No idea when I'll play all of those, but oh well.

BTTF Complete

Saints Row 3 Franchise.

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.
