    Hoping to see that they put out a GTA Complete Pack again. That would be an awesome gift for a friend in the army right now.
    It can be at the same cost as the games together. But it is much much easier to gift a pack, than GTA 3, Vice City, San Andreas and IV Complete, separate!
     
  6. Bought Psychonauts for 2.24 €

    Good metascore, a friend said it was great and bought it himself, and I fear I might not be interested in anything, so might as well get a cheap and good game.

    Thank you so much Tom! Time to go shopping. Remember my list from Autumn sale?^^
     
  9. SimCity 4 for 2.5€ :)
     
  10. Meh, picked up Rainbow Six Vegas 2 for 2.49 € as well :D

    Had a great time with the original game, a long long time ago, back in the 90s I think, LOL. Let's see if they still got it.

    Thinking about this one as well, Senad. For the exact same reasons.

    When this sale ends, I hope I have $20 to spare for the upcoming Dragonborn DLC for Skyrim.
     
  13. Got a bit bored did you Tom :roflmao:

    Nothing has come up that tickles my fancy or that I haven't already got, I might give F1 Race Stars a go though which is on @ £13, just got the demo to have a look at.

    74p for Race 07, thats about £23 less than I paid :laugh:
     
  14. Picked up Mirror's Edge for 2.5€ as well.
    Sigh, and here I was thinking I'll be strong enough not to succumb to the "buy random stuff on Steam, it's cheap, it's there!" syndrome.

    Mirrors Edge is amazing.
     
  17. I've splashed out on Bang Bang Racing and Osmos so far. Bang Bang Racing reminds me of Sprint back in the olden days, no multiplayer on PC but it does have split screen on the PS3 which is where I first played it a few weeks back, I do miss not being able to spin the wheel though.

    I have Osmos on my phone and it's quite good, I've been waiting for the Xmas sale to buy it on PC.

    If you are, like me, searching for a story-driven game that will really play on your emotions.. please please please get To the Moon. It's only €3,99 (arout £2-3 or $5-6) and it's honestly one of the most emotional experiences I've ever had with any game. Don't be hesitant to pick it up when you see it looks 'cheap' or 'boring', (that's exactly what I thought first), because the story is absolutely worth it and the graphical style of the game helps you design your own take on the characters themselves. A true brilliant piece of writing!
    Another game that will really get to you and will make you cry is The Walking Dead. Make sure to get that as well! All five episodes for just €18.74 (around £15.28 or $24.27), insanely cheap for a brilliant series that gets better each episode. Every time I finished an episode I was like ''Wow, that was amazing, how can they possibly top this next time?''... and the game succeeds in doing that every single time.
    Note: I recommend these games if you are someone who takes a story to heart and are able to easily get emotional. If you easily get bored of concentrating on a story or some dialogue, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Let's add one recommendation my heart feels the urge to tell you: BRAID! Please have a look. This old-looking Super-Mario-style platformer will make you addicted once you understand about manipulating time and you're interested in a rather mysterious background story
    €4.49 at 50% and I expect it to go down to -75% one day.

    Could one of the US guys help me? I'd like to buy Payday The Heist on Amazon.com but I can't since I'm not in the US. I can send the money through PayPal and you can of course keep the cashback. :)

    Edit: solved!
