    Finally playing Morrowind now. The game is much harder than Oblivion or Skyrim!

    Picked up Blood Dragon and Enslaved so far. In a way the sale almost sucks because I was finally starting to get through my backlog of Steam games from a couple years ago lol

    Windows only. :( 

    Speaking of Blood Dragon, is it worth the purchase? I've never really been a big fan of the Far Cry games.

    You're on a TF board, so I'll assume you enjoy 80s stuff. YES.

    The game (If you can call it that) is a brilliant throwback to 80s culture. Ninja Turtles, GI Joe, Terminator, all that shit.

    That said, SSS day 1 was somewhat lackluster for me, since I own most of these games. /first world problem.

    The Steam app really needs tabbed browsing...

    But they sucked some money from me for some cheap stuff. Thus far:
    Plants Vs Zombies
    Worms Revolution
    Chivalry: Medieval War
    Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion
    Enslaved

    I'm sure that list will grow but I really need to stop spending money...

    This sales going to end around when I order my PC parts...:(  Would I be able to make an account on my Mac, snap some of this up and then download them when I get my PC? I mean, I would assume that you can't by PC versions when on a Mac but worth a try I guess.

    Really want to nab Kerbal Space Program, it's 25% with the sale and it says that'll go through the 30th, hoping to get it cheaper but I'll just wait until the 28th/29th and then grab it

    Dunno why you wouldn't be able to. Your purchase would go into your game queue, but you just wouldn't be able to install in on a mac. When you get your pc built, just install steam and login to your same account, and then download.

    Day 2 is even MORE lackluster, because now it's not that I have these games, it's that I don't want them.

    What exactly are you looking for? Stuff to go at 90% off or games the you want?

    For me there is a point where I got most of the games I want. For those that don't have them. Good for them. They're getting a good deal. I just got "Plague Inc: Evolved". I loved the game on my phone so I said why not.

    EDIT
    I'm sure you already know that there are many other stuff on sale that's not on the front page.

    I'm not so much looking for the best sale as I am games that I was interested in getting but never did. That's what this sale is for, after all, isn't it? New games aren't getting discounted more than 25%.

    Obviously some people found great pleasure in the sale so far. But sadly most games that I looked at either aren't my cup of tea, or I have.

    That said, I'm about to pounce on Far Cry 2, since I still haven't played it, but I really don't know if I wanna play a pre-FC3 game. Obviously it's worth the 2 and a half bucks, that much is a given, I'm just wondering if that's really a game I'll play and not just put it down instantly.

    EDIT: Bought it after watching some reviews. It has to be worth 2 and a half bucks. also MODS! [​IMG]
