Has Intrusion 2 gone on sale yet? I'm thinking of just buying it now but I just want to see if it goes any lower.

So I see there's 75% off all the STALKER games. I'm so tempted to get at least Shadow of Chernobyl despite probably not being able to run it on my current computer because I don't have Windows installed. For the price, seems worth getting anyway for when I finally get around to getting a gaming computer.

Might be able to get it to run on Linux anyway.

Get it. It's well worth it and I don't see it on sale that often.

Also I see that Guns of Icarus is online is 50% off. Have any of you played it before and if so do you reccomend it.

Just bought Skyrim (it's on a flash sale at the moment).

I'm keeping my fingers crossed here that my graphics card can handle it without too much trouble. I've seen gameplay videos of people with my graphics card and it looked okay, but you never know.

Really hope Beyond: Good and Evil gets 75% off. Think Alan Wake might get the vote though.

I highly recommend Half Minute Hero. I've only played the first 3 quests so far, but damn it's fun.

I just felt like it I guess.

I usually gift things only because I have an extra copy of something for one reason or another, or on rare occasions, I gift out a game or two as a celebration for reaching a milestone in regards to my music.

I'm kind of antisocial (Ok... not "kind of"... really antisocial), the only reason I have anyone on my friends list on Steam is because it was required for one of the event badges a while back.

It works good on Low settings in window mode (which is good enough for me). The 512 MB minimum requirement is definitely not the absolute minimum. And it seems like a less graphics intensive game as Oblivion, relatively speaking.

I've never gifted anything. I'd rather not have things gifted to me either to be honest. I don't want to feel like I owe someone.

Yeah, I don't really understand the people who outright beg for gifts. I was gifted a game once and all I could feel was crippling guilt until I could pay the guy back.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Brilliant game, got it on Xbox 360 for 400MSP so I won't be getting it on Steam. I do recommend you buy it if you haven't got it already though, great art style and great gameplay (though slightly frustrating).

If you're playing it on low setting why don't you just get the console version? That plays at bout medium settings. Of course I'm assuming you own a ps3, and/ or XBox 360. Great game though I suggest upgrading your gpu to at least a gtx 460 1 Gb model. Unless you're playing on a laptop then I have been absolutely no help.

Well if I had a PS3 or XBox 360 I would've bought it long ago and wouldn't have taken the gamble of getting it for my low-end laptop. And my laptop has an integrated graphics card so there's no way I can upgrade that. Unless I go buy a whole new laptop of course, but I don't want to do that when my current one is still only three years old and completely healthy.

I admit it does feel a bit lame to play it like this, but at least I can play the game without any severe lag and frame rate drops.

Bought a bunch of stuff including the Half-life bundle and Spec-Ops: The Line. I finally decided to pick up BF2 a few days ago and the fucking thing doesn't work. I can spare the $8 I guess but I was really looking forward to it.

I see they now have the "Counter-Strike Complete" pack on sale for less than the current sale price of CS: GO alone, so I'm tempted to get that, but again, this is prior to me actually owning a computer that can run it. But I'm pretty set on building a new desktop now and I'm sure CS: GO is something I'd eventually want, so I might just get it now while it's cheaper. I sure do suck at Counter-Strike games though, but I suppose I'll adjust as I get used to using keyboard and mouse controls.

Although having said that, I might hold off for a bit. Might actually get around to ordering some of the parts tomorrow. Probably best to get that sorted before I start buying games.

I've mostly had emails about Call of Duty games on sale. I only had them on there just to attempt to win them from previous sales and to avoid giving Activision any of my money. Thankfully it's only something insignificant like that so I'm not tempted in the slightest. However, I will say email notifications for games on users' wishlists on sale is a good idea from them so I applaud them for that.

Lost the vote to Assassin's Creed II on Boxing Day but it's 75% off now, really happy - £3.49 is amazing for such a great game.

Only play it if you have at least one other person to play with (beat it in 6 hours according to steam, lots of goofing off)

I got it when it was just out (last September or so).

I liked it, but I guess it's one of those games that's best enjoyed when played with friends. You can beat the main story in less than 10 hours.
