    My wallet just commited suicide again.
    This is how a company should build loyalty, unlike all the drm and problems other companies have.

    And what happened, then? Well, in GBAtemp they say - that the Rydian's steam game list grew three sizes that day.
    Or something like that.

    And now to receive all the recommendations.. Let's keep it simple, what would you recommend from the set?

    Personal favorites (although PS3 played):

    Borderlands (If nothing else, BUY THIS!)
    Dead Space 1&2
    Devil May Cry (whatever you can manage)
    Bioshock 1&2 (Creepy fun for about 10 hours (more if you're wishing for all trophys)
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R (just for the sake of a long RPG. I didn't bother to finish this because of lack of time, but I know this will keep people with interest in SciFi/Nuclear fallout busy)

    -Qtis

    ps. Buy some of the games in sale. I would if I didn't have the ones I was interested for the PS3/PC already bought

    I'm always excited for Steam sales, especially ones featuring a bunch of creepy games, but sadly I'm not seeing anything for sale that interests me (that I don't already own on Steam). There doesn't seem to be any mention that there will be, but are there daily rotating deals? As in a small set of games that will be even further discounted for ~24 hours? THOSE might get me motivated to spill some cash, but as is, my willpower remains strong.

    Un-frickin-bloody-likely. Zombies have always been big in the last couple years without the need of CoD.

    Yeah, CoD got zombies because they were already popular.

    So... appealing... want... Left 4 Dead and Killing Floor so badly...

    I do highly recommend Killing Floor if anyone likes zombie survival games. Sort of like the CoD zombie games but with 6 player co-op, character roles (healer, etc), and much more elaborate maps.


    All these sales man, Steam gaming is evil. I thought my list would only consist of TF2 and Alien Swarm. Far from it now. T_T

    Goddamn.... I want Bioshock 1+2 for that price.
    Great quality games. And I've still got to find the funds for Skyrim and eventually Battlefield 3.

    I went ahead and bought Amnesia: The Dark Descent ($5.00) & the Left 4 Dead Bundle ~ not bad for $15.00
