I know it's mid-2012, but I am still FULLY addicted to CoD4.... I don't play anything else, apart from maybe a little Left 4 Dead

Just got it. I know its not great, but surely worth a few hours play? Or have I totally wasted £1.74? :lol:


Nah it'll probably give you a ton of hours of game time. I've heard that while it isn't as good as The Witcher 2, it's still supposedly one of the best PC RPGs.

Anyone else buy UT? It was only 1.74 the other day or some such. I can't wait for the pure nostalgia.

I have 3 different copies of the original, and one copy of UT2004, so there's no need.

Potentially getting Killing Floor, Tomb Raider Anniversary, Max Payne 1/2, Deus Ex 1/Invisible War, Quake III Arena and the Oblivion/Morrowind GOTY packs, all apart from Killing Floor for pure nostalgia.

God I've missed PC gaming :D

I couldn't resist Portal 2 for £3. I'm tempted to get New Vegas as well.

Finally got the 'Auto Fanatic' achievement for L.A. Noire. God that was a time consuming achievement.

I started New Vegas but never got into it at all. Is it really worth me revisiting it and persevering through the opening few hours?

I started New Vegas after playing Skyrim. Not a good idea. While playing it, all I can think of is how much better Skyrim is. :|

In other news, help, Steam ate the contents of my wallet.

I just got the FEAR collection and Crysis 2. Already got Dear Esther (for me and t'other half), the Nordic Hit Collection, the Bioshock Collection (for t'other half), and Bastion (from t'other half).

It's been a good sale so far. :D
