    Yeah, I have a veritable crapload of games between November 1st and today. Best deal so far was Saints Row 3.

    My problem is I don't have a lot of cash to spare, but SS3 at less than $15 is fucking hard to pass up. [GLaDOS}You bastard[/GLaDOS}

    Dead Space is $3.74 on Steam today. Is the game any good?

    Dead Space is a good game but the controls are a little rough. I use my 360 controller with it.

    O.k. thanks.

    I'm still hoping Steam discount Bioshock 2 during these sales.

    Serious Sam is #1 in the top sellers list. Nice. But $30 was a very good price for that lovely company, this is too low...

    The controls are still a little borked even with the pad.
    Best thing to do is set the game up to use M&K, then use your 360 controller through Xpadder.
    It's pretty much perfect then.

    Got Bulletstorm for $10 on Steam, as well as the F.E.A.R. Collection for $25. Awesome deal to get two huge FPS games/game packages for that low price.

    After having my arm twisted into the Serious Sam Collection, I decided to take the plunge earlier this morning on that. Glad to see that I could have all the installments for approx. $30 for all of them. Still surprised just how many GOOD game franchises are for sale in the Steam holiday sale this time around. Most of the time, you only really see so-so or flops for sale than anything. I don't think I'm complaining about the game collections I've picked up so far.

    Yeah, I picked up the Overlord complete pack for $4.99 and the Serious Sam HD collection for $2.99.

    Too good to pass up? Heck yeah!

    Yes... It was even worth it when I picked it up the first time it was on sale before Thanksgiving already. Been playing through what I could of it, but of course, DX: HR is certainly a better game than DX: IW ever was, that much I can tell ya.

    Ooh, BioShock 1 and 2 are 75% off? That seems like one that might make Steam busy. I think I have BioShock 1, but missed out on 2... All righty, I'll be picking up 2 then. Thanks for the tip!
