I would guess not, but everytime I logged into Steam TF2 needed to update. I applaud them for new content and such, but annoyining.

Pretty good for the price, that's for sure. It was really disappointing as far as Hitman games go IMO but if you're looking for a stealth assassin game in a realistic setting, Absolution for $10 is a good deal. Just don't expect it to make you think as much as the previous Hitman games did.

Won my 31st game from Steamgifts. Hearts of Iron III. Man does it look terrible.

That said my odds were 1 in 654.

I know you should look at some the gameplay of Hearts of Iron 2.



It's actually a lot less complicated than HoI3

Spec Ops: The Line
The Darkness 2

both for $4.99 ...both register on Steam.

http://www.gamefly.com/Download-Spec.../#.UVnpEldUprg

pretty awesome deal.


edit: apparently you can use the code GFDAPR20 to bring it down to $3.99.


edit: hours later and i checked it again ...now there's no price listed on that deal. maybe it was a mistake.

Price is significantly higher than SteamGifts, I wonder what's different? Do they include DLC?

Get it for at least Spec Ops. One of the best single player campaigns I can remember in recent memory. Something I will never forget.

As I've said before, I agree with Yahtzee, it might be the best game of the year not necessarily because of it being great, but it's an experience you must see and feel for yourself.

Assumed it'd be ok to post this here.

Very recently got a GTX 680 with a $150 in-game currency promo for Planetside 2, Hawken and World of Tanks. (Worth $50 for each game)

World of Tanks - 7500 Gold & 1 Month Premium
Invite: 2500 Gold
Planetside 2 - 5000 Station Cash
Hawken - 7200 Meteor Credit

I'll sell all 3 for $60 or $25 each.
Also open to trading.

If anyone is interested in trading for/buying the codes, send me a PM.

Thanks for the heads up on that Humble deal, I bought one for the above the average price. I already own KF and RO2 but figured it's cheap enough that I can give my brother a key for KF and if he doesn't ever play it, neither of us are going to feel bad.

Also, I may have interest in that Hawken code. Not sure what you'd want to trade, I need more time to play the game myself before I decide if I want to put any money into the game.

should be pretty easy to trade that Planetside 2 station cash ...that game is pretty sweet.

Hawken isn't too bad either, tho, i don't think its nearly as popular as Planetside.

not familiar with World of Tanks, but i hear its good.

good luck on the trading.


btw ...which GTX680 did you get? ie, evga, etc.
