Shelled out for Max Payne 3. Awesome Deal - but be warned - 35GB install size.

Yeah, not happenin' on this partition. *Sigh*

I was hoping they would have Farcry 3, but since it's a new release...

New releases usually only see 10-20% off.  Where you really see the deals is stuff that is a year or two old, and the package deals.   With some of those you might pick up 10 games for only a dollar or two each.

Max Payne 3 is 35 gigs once installed?

Seriously, game developers with hard drive space are becoming like politicians with taxpayer dollars.

I picked up Torchlight II (Better than Diablo III IMHO)

and Natural Selection II Aliens vs Marines FPS + RTS.  No I'm not kidding.  The commander has a top down view of the action, and when he clicks on his units to send them to do something they may or may not do it. Because they're real people.   :D

All for $25.00 each.

Frugality fail ... again.

Torchlight II (at 14.99  :neener )

I love Diablo II:LoD too much.

*hangs head

I did like the look of NS II, but I'm hooked on TF2.  Although Planetside 2 looks interesting.

I got Diablo III for free because I signed up for the  World of Warcraft annual pass last year.  I was not impressed with it.  Basically it was nothing more than running around and spam clicking on crap until it died, then picking up piles of gold and crappy loot.  I ran through it once, but haven't touched it in months.     I never played the first two,  so I don't know if they were any better.

Also, you might want to check other game download sites as well.   This site here offers a good list of what is on sale at steam and a few others:

Also,  Amazon is running some really good deals right now.   I just picked up Bioshock I and II  for $5 total.

The new Humble Bundle is interesting.

Pay what you want, and you get several of the Company of Heroes games, Metro 2033, the newest Red Faction, and several other games through steam.

That's pretty cool.   Never heard of humble bundle before.  I'll have to monitor that.   I'd definitely jump on this one if I didn't already own all the Company of Heroes titles.

For the love...  I really wish Spacemarine worked on my laptop.  I got it, and all it does is crash four seconds after launching.

I can't get Space Marine to work on my laptop, either.  Only on the tower.  I don't think it's compatible with laptop graphics cards.
