*bump*

There's a big sale on for Sega-developed titles on Steam this weekend. Alpha Protocol caught my attention at two dollars. The Total War uber-bundle is running seventeen.

No matter what others may say, AP is easily worth $2 :)

aye. It's far from perfect but AP is still worth $2. Nice deal there :)

Just got Company of Heroes & the 2 expansions for a fiver. Played some of the first game when it originally came out and loved it but my computer couldn't handle it very well at the time so never finished it, not played either expansion either.

I love the atmosphere of the game. There've been plenty of moments, where I had to pause to say, "I'm James F'n Bond!" The dialogue system, though.... I'm reminded of Adlai Stevenson/General Chang: "Don't wait for the translation!"

Glad to hear you're enjoying it :) I kinda liked the way it took a less serious tone than Bond, in both dialogue and other areas, though. The Brayko boss fight for example was just fantastic, completely over the top though it may have been.

Admittedly though, it will not be everyone's cup of tea. Just hope you can keep seeing past the bits that don't fit perfectly. I'd still say easily worth $2 though!

I already own the R* complete pack but that is an absolute bargain for anyone who is missing some of these, nice spot :thumb:
(It appears to be £4.99 here in the UK which is even better)

Big Halloween sale going on over at Steam right now. Some decent stuff looks to be on sale and I'm considering picking up a few things, like Scratches and Bioshock.

Hmmm some goodies in there that for one reason or another I've not got around to buying.

Vampire: The Masquarade
Dead Space 1 + 2
Bioshock 2
Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Best of all I can get them all for under $30.

Time to catch up on my spooky RPG's :nervous:

Thanks for the heads up Mech, didn't realise there was a sale on :)
May buy 1 or 2 things but I'll probably wait until the Christmas sales before I go on a shopping spree.

Yeah, I don't use the forums so I didn't get this message. Still, not a bad idea to go about changing passwords anyway to be on the safe side. Thanks for the heads up!

[s]No sign of hackery on my end, but[/s] I updated my password and deauthorized all other computers anyway. No harm staying on the safe side.

On the subject of deals, though, Dirt 3 and F1 2011 are available in a $34 bundle this weekend. That was a little too awesome for me to turn down, though I've not been able to install F1 2011 yet, due to a certain over-rated, over-marketed title getting released today. Still, may as well make the purchase, so that you can stratch that racing itch....eventually.


[edit]Unauthorized charge on my card for $10.34 yesterday. I've deactivated that card and suggest my fellow Steam users with card information saved there keep an eye on their accounts.[/edit]

I noticed all saved card info was promptly deleted by steam after the report was released. Still, that doesn't help anyone whose info may have been stolen already, such as yours may have been. One of the downsides of using the net to make payments for any goods or services; the info is there, it just depends on how determined someone is to obtain it.

In any case, I'll continue to keep an eye on my card's account and close it if there's any sign of unauthorized use. I may just go ahead and do that tomorrow, anyway.

Sorry to hear that, BF. <censored> hackers :shake:
Haven't noticed anything dodgy on my end thankfully (touch wood) but whenever I buy something on steam I purposely re-enter my billing address rather than clicking the button to save the details and I always pay through paypal. Cos of that none of my debit card details are actually on there so that should have helped somewhat.

EDIT: I've reversed my stance on this. I may actually consider buying this. I bought this at launch (along with my 360 - Oblivion was the killer app for me), but stopped playing after I did several faction quest lines, and before I even got through the cliche-ridden main quest.

However, I may just buy this for PC and try to play through again with mods. I've also heard that the Shivering Isles expansion is much better than the vanilla game, and more befitting the Elder Scrolls name.

And the joke, Strac, was the game. Vanilla Oblivion really does suck. I guess it might be worth it for $5, but tbh, for hardcore fans of the series, the vanilla game is a real black mark. A large modding community did develop around it, and they are to be credited with several ideas that Bethesda implemented in Skyrim. However, it was such a disappointment that a huge number of modders stayed with Morrowind and kept creating new content that kept that game fresh for 9 years.

It will be interesting to see what happens to Elder Scrolls modders in the wake of Skyrim. I predict most Oblivion modders move over, while probably only half of the Morrowind modders do likewise.

Big autumn sale started yesterday. My spending money for the week got dumped into Witcher 2, Red Alert 3, Metro 2033, and just to prove what an absolutely enormous dork I am, one of the more maligned Sonic titles from the Genesis-era, Sonic Spinball.
