    I picked up Brothers, some weird game about Japanese schoolgirls with swords (it was like a pound, don't judge me) and Halo Spartan Assault which is garbage.

    Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae is actually pretty damn good. Great combos and some nice music. That said, the entire time playing it I felt extremely awkward, and I would never have friends around while playing it, unless that's your thing, I guess.

    Bless you, Gabe Newell.

    Here's the damage:
    The Witcher 2
    Octodad: Dadliest Catch
    Terraria
    (gift for a friend)
    E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy
    Papers, Please
    Skullgirls
    Skullgirls: Squigly DLC
    Borderlands 2: Goty edition

    Thought of getting Metro: Last Light, but decided to wait for the Redux version.
    Also, Wolfenstein: TNO is right up my alley. Love it!

    Picked up ten games myself, which were:

    -Skyrim Legendery Edition
    -Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition
    -Resident Evil 4 HD
    -The Stanley Parable
    -F.E.A.R
    -Broken Age
    -Nidhogg
    -Double Dragon Neon
    -Castle Crashers plus DLC.
    -Pacman Championship Edition DX+ All You Can Eat Edition

    Cost me about $55. Started with Resident Evil 4, game is still sooo good. Somehow the enemies are still smarter than most shooter enemies I encounter in games today.

    I think I did pretty well:

    Skyrim------------$4.99
    Tomb Raider-------$4.99
    Sanctum 2--------$4.99
    Mass Effect 1+2---$8.74
    Saints Row IV-----$9.99
    Just Cause 2------$2.99

    Total: $36.69

    I also grabbed Gunpoint on sale the day before the big sale started for $2.49. Technically I paid nothing for any of these, since I sold off most of my Strange quality TF2 weapons for keys over the past month, which I then sold on the market for just over $2 each. :)

    My damage from the Steam sale:

    -Hotline Miami + soundtrack
    -Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
    -Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine
    -Betrayer
    -Metal Slug 3
    -Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
    -Rayman Legends (plus another copy for a friend's birthday)
    -Payday 2 + all the DLC that was on sale
    -Max Payne 3
    -Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death
    -also got Goat Simulator as a gift from a friend. :) 

    Overall pretty decent haul, even if the sales were kinda crappy this year overall. Spent probably just a bit over $65. And I must say that having played Marlow Briggs, this game is shockingly legit for the $1 I paid for it. Buy that game next time around people. Actually, I've played a bit of everything I got so far, and I think I did really good on everything.

    I ended up not buying any games. I kept waiting and waiting in the hopes that the games I wanted would be just a little cheaper, but nope. Even when they were on flash or community choice sale, I was like, "Well, maybe they'll put it 50% off later". Oh well. They'll probably be 80% off during the winter sale.

    Finally sitting down to tally up the haul. Haven't bought anything on Steam since the Holiday sale back, so I went into this with a few rules:
    1. Only buy it if it was on my wishlist
    2. Don't pay more than $9.99 for something AAA
    3. Don't pay more than $4.99 for DLC or an indie (unless if said item was already $4.99, then pay only if its less).

    Going by these rules, I grabbed only stuff that was on flashes/dailies/votes until the last day, then grabbed ~$20 more extra stuff that fit the above criteria on the last day.

    The damage:
    Far Cry 3 - Deluxe
    Octodad: Dadliest Catch
    The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
    The Bureau: XCOM Hanger 6 R&D
    The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - Code Breakers
    Amnesia: Machine for Pigs
    State of Decay
    Halo: Spartan Assault
    Master Reboot
    Bioshock Infinite Season Pass
    Assassin's Creed Liberation

    Betrayer
    Outlast
    Metro Last Light Complete
    Borderlands 2: Headhunter 4: Wedding Day Massacre
    Borderlands 2: Headhunter 5: Son of Crawmerax
    Borderlands 2 Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2
    Deus Ex: The Fall
    Dead Island Riptide
    Gone Home
    Saints Row IV
    Saints Row IV - How the Saints Save Christmas
    Saints Row IV - Enter The Dominatrix

    I bought Shadowrun Returns and Rocksmith 2014 for $35 , only to later discover that my "RealTone" cable is fucked and a replacement will basically cost me as much as the game did. :banghead:
