To all you Shameless Gaming diehards out there, just pretend this article doesn’t exist. The last thing I need right now is a bunch of crazed people chasing me with pitchforks and torches.

Also, here’s a tip to those of you who are downloading games off of Steam. If you’re download speed is really slow, try changing which Steam server you’re downloading from to an US one. To do so, click Steam in the top left corner, go into settings, go into the Downloads+Cloud tab and change you’re download region to US – Los Angeles or somewhere else in the US.

    Dude, all those Steam deals are yesterdays!

      My fault. Internet was down so didn't get my emails until this morning.

    Umm... How about Call of Pripyat for 4 bucks? That game is amazing.

      Actually, sorry. That's because they give you a discount if you own the other two. My bad.

    I think it'd be safer to leave off the Steam summer sale daily deals, as the ones that are listed in the article are no longer at that price.

    Today's deals are just as awesome though. Great deals on the STALKER games, Monday Night Combat, the four most recent NFS games (I picked up Hot Pursuit as I have both Shifts on the 360), Civ V, Monkey Island..

    You're killing my wallet by death of 1000 transactions, Steam. :(

      I do like how this packs get around the AU price increase.

      You only have to look at the NFS pack, Shift2 is $80 in AU by default, yet the pack takes into account the default US pricing.

    I just grabbed Bad Company 2 (PS3) for $29 from JB HiFi online, free delivery (in Melbourne at least).

    WOAH WOAH WOAH!!!

    THERE'S A NEW DEAD RISING GAME!??!!?

      I beleive, and may be wrong that off the record is an enhanced version of DR2, same game with a different character and a new zone or two, would love someone to confirm this...

        I thnk CapCom declared it to be a new game...
        But really it's just a reskin of DR2.

          Pretty sure that's the one where you play the same story as Frank West.

    What about Mass Effect 2 (PS3) for $30 at GAME? Big catalogue in this weeks junk mail.

    Snagged Deus Ex for $2.50 on Steam today, still thinking about Stalker SoC for $3.75.

    Not sure if it's at all EB's with their current w/e sale. But my local one has 60% off Fallout 3 Game Of The Year edition which makes it 20 bucks, 17 dollars cheaper than Steam.

      Here we go, it's more on other platforms. But still cheap enough for a really good game & it's DLC.

        More like...

        "Fallout 3 Crash To Desktop Every 3 Minutes Edition"

        amirite?

          No I never had that problem. I never had Fallout 3 crash, Fallout New Vegas on the other hand.

        Got this with a $25 gift card I never used. Still waiting to see if it comes up for sale on Steam though :D

          Sadly Bethesda had their franchise sale yesterday and only FNV was on sale.. So it'd be doubtful.

    Don't forget that MightyApe are doing their big 'up to 80% off' PC clearance until tomorrow.
    For myself I'm looking into Mafia II Collector's Edition ($20), Blur ($15), and Lost Planet 2 ($8). Shipping should only be about $5 and there are some pretty good odds and ends in their selection; eg.
    * Aliens Vs Predator (the new one) $5
    * Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing $5 (highly recommended if you like kart racers. There is a third-party mod that fixes the control issues on the PC version. *may be available <$10 in some Dick Smith stores otherwise)
    * Kane & Lynch 2 Limited Edition $10
    * Hitman Collection $10
    * Galactic Civilizations 2: Ultimate Edition $10
    * Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena $12
    * Saboteur $15 (if you can't find any leftovers for $10 somewhere like Dick Smith)
    * Spore: Galactic Edition $20 (if you missed it for $15 in the previous sale)

    There's a lot more there but these are just a few personal recommendations.
