    I don't know if anyone else outside of the U.S. is having this sale, but, it is not as significant is the Christmas sale.

    Still, share what you bought in the sale.
     
  2. Listed as Autumn Sale on my end. Probably will get something, but nothing today it seems.

    The list will be updated in the coming days.

    Darksiders 1 is really great. Bought 2 some weeks ago (was on sale for 17€, now it's on sale for 16.99€) but didn't play it yet.

    If I do buy it will be a -75 % nothing less...but nothing is jumping out at me yet..:)

    Edit..
    Black shark .....looks good
     
  7. Almost pulled the trigger on Age of Empires Collection, good to kill a few hours on, also debating about Postal 3 but that is only 33% off.

    Missed to buy AoE III yesterday, but now I just bought Portal 2, Blood Bowl, Zombie Driver HD and Indie Game Movie.
    Will look for more 75% discounts...

    Was looking for a good tower defense game and bought Defense Grid + DLC. Seemed like a good deal für 3.49€. :)

    I've bought Max Payne 1 on day 1 back when it was released but I still can't justify buying Max Payne 3. The setting just isn't the same and the graphics look meh to me as well.

    Also, there are many games up to 90% off but they're not even listed on the front page - this article is helpful.

    Awesome! Thank you!
    Added Deus Ex 3 plus Missing Link DLC and Psychonauts.
     
  12. I also missed the AoE collection, debated too long, it's still on offer but now £14. I started Origin yesterday, first time in a while and they also had a Sale on, I got the complete C&C franchise for £13. NFS Most Wanted was £23 IIRC.

    F1 2012 on 50% now (20EUR).

    I've bought New Star Soccer 5, Max Payne 3, and Company of Heroes collection (or something like that) so far! :)

    And I got gifted a couple of other games, as a (extremely) late birthday present! Weey! Sniper Elite Franchise & Worms Revolution! :)

    EDIT: What? Christmas sale? I need money! Now! :p
     
  15. Sniper Elite 1 is awesome, I still play it, Sniper Elite 2 is a horrible waste of pixels.

    Had 4-5 "this game not available in your region" messages, I wonder what they all were.

    Hm I found SE:V2 to be amusing, especially in coop. Prolly depends on what you want to get out of it. :)
     
  17. Yeah, I was/am a fan of the original game, and expected something similar. But for me this even fails as a generic shooter.
    Story none, checkpoints to... check every half a minute, the whole world is 20 metres wide, the AI is stupid, controls and movement are bad, the game was quite demanding to run, while not looking especially great, etc.

    Last day of the Steam sale, I saw nothing that interesting for myself :(
     
  18. Doh! Realised I already owned C&C Generals, C&C3, C&C4 via Steam so I gained RA1 (which I own on disk anyway), which looks absolutely shocking on my 37", I don't really know what I was expecting with it hailing from circa 1997 though. I've not tried RA2 yet but I'm not holding out much hope for that one being playable either. C&C3 onwards will be fine. I suppose I could play RA1\2 on the lappy.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to give away games downloaded on Origin?, if so I might just do what I did with another double purchase some time back, IIRC it was CMR DiRT or DiRT2 that ErikT won in that competition.

    So this is my complete list. I hope copying is allowed:)
    I missed: AoE III (see post #9 - my bad, I just missed it), Spec Ops: The Line (did not fall to 75% discount), Gemini Rue, Trine 2 Goblin Menace DLC (waited for both to become even cheaper, they didn't; while last offers were counting down on the front page all other games were put back to normal...STEAM should have made this clear, they had no countdown and sale still was running)

    Legend of Grimrock
    Dungeons of Dredmor CotW
    Dungeons of Dredmor: Realm of the Diggle Gods
    NightSky
    Quantum Conundrum Season Pass
    Broken Sword - Trilogy pack
    Introversion Complete Pack (March 2012)
    Magnetis
    Toki Tori
    The Void
    Dark Fall: Lost Souls
    Bad Rats: the Rats Revenge
    Zeno Clash
    Deus Ex Human Revolution: The Missing Link DLC
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Standard Edition
    Psychonauts
    Indie Game: The Movie
    Portal 2
