Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

So, anyone got any juicy speculation about what Valve will announce at E3? God I hope they give us some Episode 3 news, in fact give us some HL3 news as well!

I'm really enjoying Kings bounty, a sister game to Heroes of might and magic, but with a slightly different format. It's a lot of fun.

Nothing official yet but it does seem that some kind of news is coming. They'll probably surprise us all and announce L4D 3 and 4 though :P

So the "big surprise" is not Episode Three, from Gabe's mouth. What the hell does this mean. Half Life 3? Please?

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

Who wants to play some Counter Strike: Source?

1.3 over here, I tried searching for a CS thread but could not find anything after the first couple pages

I just noticed fatal1ty was sponsored by full tilt and I checked and he was the same guy from CPL, i forget which well known clan he used to play for.

Is there any other well known cs pros that play online poker? This is the first time I've talked about CS on here, it used to be a big part of my life aka putting in 8-10 hours a day for a couple years.

fatal1ty has competed in CS but it's not what he's really known for. He's more of a 1v1 gamer.

I'm late to mention this but if you don't already have Crysis go get it half price quick, amazing game. This appears to be the deals in line for the EA sale for the week, plenty to spend cash on!

This maybe a noob question but just out of curiosity: how did you find the banners from the promotions yet to come ?

The banner on their webpage was like this:
http://cdn.steampowered.com/v/gfx/cl...ge_english.jpg
Just change monday to tuesday/wednesday etc and there you go, you get all the banners. Someone stitched them together on the Steam forums so I just posted that.

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

Should I buy Dead Space on Steam or buy it for the 360?

Or is this entirely just my preference?

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

I don't have it myself but I've read that the PC controls can be a bit annoying and it is pretty much a console port BUT if you PC is decent you will be able to make it look way better than the console version. It's your call really but personally I'd buy the PC version every time. If you have a 360 controller you can use on the PC version then that makes the decision even easier.

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

Next question: Is Red Alert 3 worth $15?

I liked single player on RA2, so maybe this is worth it. I haven't played RA2 in forever though. Never played RA3.

Probably go with PC Dead Space

just saw those Red Alert deals and decided to buy RA3...i used to play Command and Conquer back in the day, haven't played a RTS in a long time but for $15 figured it was worth it

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

Meh, I missed monday, the one day I really wanted to get the game for. Battlefield 2 is good fun anyways. No command and conquer deals for me, I always get bored/frustrated after a few levels.

I'm interested to see how cheap spore will be on Friday. Considering buying it despite the crappy stuff it does to your computer. Never heard of dead space but it looks alright, might get that also and mass effect.

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

That's a shame you missed the Crysis deal, that is such an amazing game, i hesitate even to call it underrated since most people think of it as purely a tech showcase. I can't wait for the sequel.

Anyway Burnout Paradise at -75% good lord I may have to pick it up, yet more games. The problem with these deals is we all end up with way more games than we can possibly ever play.

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

Ugh, wasn't planning on getting any racing games today, but for £5 I had to get Burnout Paradise. Aaaand then I saw I could get Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was only £7 so I got that too....

Good job I got all summer to wade through all these games.

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

I also grabbed Burnout Paradise, might as well burn another five quid, heaven knows when I'll play it.

I see the next set of deals is up, 50% off Dead Space is incredibly tempting, mirrors edge 75% off as well, anyone want to tell me how great either of these are?

I have both for PS3.

Dead Space is actually a really decent Horror Survival game. I found it really interesting with some good atmosphere and good ideas. It's not brilliant, but me and a few friends really enjoyed taking turns at playing it. It's a bit short and it sucks that you unlock more difficulty settings as you play, because it can be a bit easy at times. Sometimes the story has those " bah, i knew that was gonna happen " but you get over it. The weapons and the physics are just pure awesomeness imo Some small replay value too.

Mirrors edge is a really innovative game. The movements are really fluid and the artistic presentation is supreme. The only problem with the game is that the story is a bit "meh" and it can get repetitive after a while. After all, you are only running and jumping the entire time. I never really finished it due to my old PS3 breaking and me losing all the saves, but it was still a decent title. Campaign has no replay value, and speed courses can get old after a while.

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

$60 for the spore pack seems like a pretty terrible "deal"

Mirrors edge and Dead Space are both great deals though.

Yeah Spore doesn't interest me really, it looked great when it first was announced but failed to live up to expectations, and as you say that is no kind of deal.

Thanks to YouR_DooM for your summary of Dead Space and Mirrors Edge, suddenly they are BOTH tempting me!
