There's a monster sale on at Steam until July 4 where a sizeable chunk of the catalogue is reduced in price from 25% to 90%. Plus, Valve is offering further daily specials on selected titles.
It's proved impossible to resist.
As of this afternoon, my purchases stand at:
* Aliens Vs Predator Classic 2000 - because I loved it way back then and no longer own the disc. * Alpha Prime - because it was cheap, looks vaguely like a rough mix of DOOM III and System Shock 2 and was developed in Poland. * Cryostasis - because it rips off The Thing and hopefully, like Alpha Prime, has that quirky Eastern European sensibility I dig in a PC game. * Darwinia - because it was part of the ridiculously cheap Introversion Pack. * DEFCON - see Darwinia. * Gothic II Gold Edition - because it's an RPG series I've never played. * Gothic III - because I've still never played it and it came with the above. * King's Bounty - because I miss the days when Heroes of Might & Magic was actually good. * Multiwinia - see Darwinia. * Penumbra: Black Plague - because I like spooky games and I recall being intrigued by the demo of this physics-heavy adventure several years ago. * Penumbra: Overture - because all the Penumbra games came in a cheap pack. * Penumbra: Requiem - cheap, I said! * STALKER: Clear Sky - because for some reason I never had a copy of this, just a glitchy beta version for preview. * Space Rangers - because it came with... * Space Rangers 2: Reboot - because Space Rangers 2 was awesome and I can no longer find my disc. * Uplink - see Darwinia.
How do you rate my splurge? And what did you score in the Steam Summer Sale?
