Spent $5 for Portal 2. I've heard nothing but great things about the game so it was too good to pass up.

Mark of the Ninja and Hotline Miami for me today. Most likely done until the Christmas sale.

Some good sales today. I know somebody was looking for Chivalry, it's 50% off to $12.49.

I'm going to pick up Mark of the Ninja myself. That's a game I've been waiting to go on sale and I'm looking for a casual game to play at the moment too. Good timing Steam!

I'm on the fence about Hotline Miami. It does look fun but I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to play it. It's tough to buy some of these even on sale because the Christmas sale is only a month away. Do you have time to play it before then is the question you have to answer.

That bundle that BeBen listed is pretty good for that price too. Unfortunately all the games I'm interested in, I already own.

That Chivalry deal is tempting, but I think if I wait for the winter sale I can get it for less then 10 bucks.

Definitely going to pick up Mark of the Ninja, lots of league streamers play it during their queue times so I know what it's about and have been wanting to pick it up for a while.

Somewhat want Dishonored but GMG won't let me purchase it... Got Hitman Absolution for $22.50 though so I am happy with that.

Haha I'm the same way. I wouldn't mind splitting the price though if you happen to want. It looks kind of interesting but not something I'd want to throw $12 at.

Meh i'll think about it but even 6$ buys a lot these days, i sure as hell could get a game i'm more confident in liking at that price

Could trade you Metro 2033 or STALKER SoC though

GMG had it for $32.50 and I had $10.00 in credit.

Is L.A. Noire worth $5?

I enjoyed it for a bit but after a while it just got redundant.

I have not finished it. I doubt I ever will.

Don't worry, you'll buy more! I went in expecting to buy nothing and I've bought 8 games so far... Arx Fatalis, Call of Cthulhu, Mark of the Ninja, and the 5 original XCOM games.

Kind of what I was worried about...

Anyone played Patrician III or IV? What about Port Royale 3?

Picked up Transformers so far. $4.99, figured I might as well give a shot.

Gonna grab Avencast too, I think. Undecided though.

By the way, HFBS giveaway for 24 hours starting now on Steamgifts.

finished episodes 1 and 2 of 'the walking dead'.

man that game is good. didn't think it'd be that cool ...but its really interesting and very well put together.


and yeah, i agree with the other comments about LA Noire. that game gets super tedious. i ended up just quitting after about 10 hours or so. way too dull.

Ya, I love The Walking Dead. I played through the first 2 chapters but stopped as I waited for them all. I will now for sure start over and play through it all that all the chapters are live.

One note to anyone though, if you are going to skip the "story" and look for action it is probably not worth it.

Exactly why I haven't bought it. Looks like a modern interpretation of an FMV game, without the actual FMV. Not my deal.

Yeah, that's true.

Have both of those, although I never played either yet
