"hopefully it's been worth the weight"

...I despair.


Bioshock Infinite (+DLC) can join my collection. The Counter-Strike Complete collection makes no sense, it's 17p more expensive than the most expensive game in the collection, so that's coming too. Nothing else of interest that I don't already own.

So far, pretty good.

EDIT: or not. It seems that the Steam servers aren't coping too well with the demand. I can apparently pre-order Bioshock Infinite though. :lol:

EDIT EDIT: So I apparently bought Infinite twice. I also got Tomb Raider, Kerbal Space Program, and Prison Architect, which I didn't pay for. Except I didn't actually get them, because they're not in my All Games listing. How odd.

Eh, bit of a lame first day. Only really interesting game (since I already own Infinite) was Don't Starve, but it's too expensive. Tbh I'm hoping for Dishonored and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon to go on sale. That would make pretty happy!

How the hell did you manage that? The Steam shop's been practically unusable all day. :o

Yeah, the Steam forums are in an uproar about it. There's threats of pirating games instead, boycotting steam, defecting to Origin...

Just kidding on that last one. Nobody's that desperate. :lol:

Not mad about some of these deals so far, but I'll be getting Bioshock, Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition and Left 4 Dead 2 when I get moneys.


These Steam Sale videos are never not funny though : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... oGxA48HQ1g
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!

Got dead rising 2 off the record, its very fun. Chuck can fuck right off with his fucking chainsaw motorbike bullshit though, prick.

Got to wave 32 on zombies on buried tonight, 3 of us without anyone going down til we got overrun at the end. Spectacular game, put about 70k points into the bank as well. We play better with just the three of us than with the 4th guy who usually plays with us. 2 of us got our knife emblems and one got another mark on his emblem but no knife :lol:

Completed the magic 2014 single player campaign, got a second campaign to do which is supposed to be much harder. And won a few online games with the same people I played zombies with, by bluffing to make them think I was weak before bringing out a legendary creature that makes al my creatures indestructible and by pure luck when they teamed up against me in the second game :lol:

So far I've just bought Hotline Miami and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. I was going to get Fallout 3 GOTY edition, but there's no point as I probably won't have the time to play it. That game is always on sale, so may as well wait.

The main one I'm keeping an eye out for now is Dishonored, although I am tempted by Tomb Raider.

Ok, Tomb Raider, Dishonored and Dust An Elysian Tale bought. Unless Evoland goes on sale, I think that's my lot.

I really enjoyed Tomb Raider. Didn't think I was going to because I didn't quite connect with the really old ones.

How are through are you in the series? Uncharted was a bit repetitive, but 2 and 3 are two of the finest games on the PS3 - utterly brilliant.

Got Organ Trail - Directors Cut.

It's not bad. Not sure I'll play it through more than once, but it's a neat idea, albeit repetitive.
