Definitely nostalgia. The only thing I want is SoaSE: Rebellion.

Oh boy... So far:

Anno 2070
Mirror's Edge
Civilization 5
SpaceChem
Torchlight 2 pre-order (with Torchlight as a bonus to play in the mean time)

I was really close to picking up Fallout: New Vegas just because it was $5, but then I remembered that I never really got into Fallout 3 at all, and decided against it.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Not so much a Steam deal (like there's a shortage of those at the moment anyways...) as Steam news, but Steam on Linux has been officially confirmed to be in the works, with L4D2 being the probable launch title for it.

A lot of the really tempting deals have been for games I already own, which has helped. Though even then I've still been tempted to pick up extra copies of some games on the off chance I might want to gift them to somebody in the future.

Still waiting for ArMA and SoaSE to go on daily/flash sale though.

Train Simulator 2012 is on sale. I'm tempted. If only to further this fine genre of videos.

Eh. The game is about an hour, the graphics are pretty, but the story takes about a paragraph to explain fully and the hour is you slowly walking around the island learning the story in a roundabout fashion. Was it a better experience than a beverage from Starbucks? Sure, but that doesn't take an hour to drink.

It looks like the flash sales and the community choice sales are all pulling from the daily sales pool - at least for the games that have appeared in all three to date, they had identical discounts. So, I'd say there's no chance.

25% isn't much of a discount at all really, since Stardock sells it directly for that price if you already own Sins.

Well, I think I've bought everything I want - New Vegas DLC, Civilisation V, Thief Collection, Hitman Collection and Bastion. Not much, but I've had my eye on these for a while, and they should keep me occupied for a veeery long time. Cost me around £20 for the lot, <3 Steam Sales

After so many sales, I'm really beginning to scrape the barrel.

Seems to be around

40% owned
45% crap
5% apparent crap with enough potential to gamble on in the hope that they'll be underrated <-- what I'm buying for the most part

Ah, I have bought too much.

I said that yesterday, but now that I've bought even more stuff, I mean it.

This sale, on top of my enormous pile of unplayed games from the holiday sale, I bought digital copies of the total war series (most of them I only had on CD), all their DLC, the sniper elite franchise, dragon age origins, dead space, ME2 (I got 1 in the holiday sale, still haven't played it), LA Noire and Gods and Kings (I got civV in the holiday sale, not played it yet). My list of uninstalled games (some of which I have played, some I haven't) is at least as long as my list of installed games which double counts a load because it's got about fifty-billion different source games many of which have shared meshes, textures etc. (I'm looking at you hl2).

So yeah, I bought too much :(

I think I'm about to buy New Vegas, although I really ought not to. As a question, though, I'm curious as to how much higher the system reqs are than Fallout 3. I ask, even though I can look at the system requirements directly from the Steam page, because I sometimes find them a bit misleading. AFAIK, I have all the requirements to play Assassin's Creed II but can't actually play it because I end up moving in slow motion with all the graphics turned down. Other games, though, run just fine. Can anyone here make an apt comparison?

Edit: This is what I miss occasionally about my 360. No worries about requirements.

I don't think the requirements are higher than those of FO3 at all. Besides the more more fallout-like gameplay, it's basically the same game.

I've thought a few times about buying stuff I only have on CD. My concern is that if I ever actually get around to trying to play them sometime, I'll discover that the hassle of getting the things to work under Windows 7 will draw a substantially greater toll than paying Valve $2.50.

Yeah, a while ago I bought FO3 on steam, still haven't been able to make it work and I've tried all the known fixes online but none of them seem to work so now, I've got a game I can't play at all. The total wars all seem to work fine though. I've played as far back as Rome before with no problems and I don't think I'm likely to go back to the original Medieval or Shogun games.

I know that feel. Someone gave me the FO3 games on the xbox, and it would crash. I enjoyed FO3 NV enough to buy it on the PC, but I can't get it to not-crash either! Grrr.

The original Fallout 3 is also very crashy. I have never been able to play past the point where I leave the vault because the game always crashes at that point. This actually seems to be a feature of Bethesda games because Oblivion and Morrowind were also buggy as hell. The only Bethesda game I've ever actually played without running afoul of bugs is Skyrim, which is odd because everybody tells me it's their buggiest game ever.

That's completely false. Morrowind was far and away buggier, if only because of crazy as shit like the boots of blinding speed, levitation and fortify acrobatics by 1000(You could jump 50 feet into the air). Also the cities were rendered in the world instead of separately so it could cause issues.

Daggerfall was also buggy as hell, but it was a different era then; I expected games to be more buggy.

That sounds similar to the problems I was getting with FO3. The screen would just freeze on whatever it was doing before but the audio would keep going. I think the furthest I ever managed was just after (less than a minute) you become an adult.

I did some digging and, judging by the fixes it seems to be mainly that FO3 doesn't like windows 7 or Vista (or really anything later than XP, I doubt it'd like 8 for instance), CPUs with more than 2 cores or you have "too much" RAM (not sure how much it gets annoyed at. Unfortunately I have at least two of those and the fixes which are meant to make it work for them (adding an extra line to one bit of the code to make it use a certain number of cores, compatibility mode etc.) did nothing, they just meant I could play for about a minute instead of 30s.

So yeah, I was annoyed about that, it wasn't even on sale at the time so I blew a fair bit of money on it too. This was just before I got RAGE too and that didn't work out so well either...

I assume the steam version has the latest patch. I have a non-steam CD version of Fallout 3, and with the latest patch the game would crash constantly. I rolled back to a previous patch and the game was stable. Not sure if it's possible to do that with the steam version, unfortunately.

yeah, I don't think there's a way to unpatch steam games without installing a mod which undoes the relevant changes. I think I tried the unofficial fallout3 patch too but it didn't work out :/

I've basically given up any hope of playing it on this machine. I might give it a try on my next one though (hopefully not too long on that count though).

Got Krater. It wasn't very expensive to begin with, but now it's just ridiculously cheap.

I like it. It plays a bit like Dungeon Siege, and is set in a fallout-esque post-apocalyptic Sweden.

Daggerfall was also buggy as hell, but it was a different era then; I expected games to be more buggy.

I'm going to add on to what Dark said - Bethesda games, while still giant bugpiles, are getting less and less and less buggy. Even after several playthroughs of Skyrim, I only crashed to desktop a handful of times and experienced fewer than 15 game-breaking bugs.

Any other company would illicit cries of "What the hell is this shit?" but it's quite literally the least buggy Bethesda game I've ever played.

What appears to be happening is - with every game Bethesda puts out, they get more new players. A lot more. 5-10 times more. New players seem to outnumber people who've played their earlier games (or the old players are just being quiet) and as a result, you have people encountering games that - if released by another company - would get shoved to the bargain bin for being buggy messes.

Bethesda somehow gets a pass on this due to.... I dunno. History?

Arena was buggy. Daggerfall was more buggy to the point where it was literally unbeatable without a patch. Morrowind was less buggy than Daggerfall. Oblivion was less buggy than Morrowind. Fallout 3 was less buggy than Oblivion. And Skyrim is less buggy than Fallout 3. Just people are getting in to Bethesda games without the proper introduction of "You're going to play that? But they haven't released a patch yet - how do you know the menu is going to work?"

Seriously, the person saying Skyrim is Bethesda's buggiest game literally has no idea what they're talking about.

Skyrim had some very high visibility bugs though. Mammoths dropping from the sky was common place. And an uncomfortable amount of z-fighting in distant terrain.

Apparently everyone with a copy of Aah! A Reckless Disregard for Gravity got a 50% off coupon for Aah! For the Awesome. Though I actually own two copies of Disregard (because of the Potato Sack), so I got two coupons. I also already own For the Awesome.

Does anyone want the coupons? They're worthless to me, but I don't want them to go to waste. They expire August 13th.

I also have a coupon to spare. the Aah! games are a lot of fun, definitely worth 5 dollars with the coupon.

For the Awesome is also on sale as part of Indie-bundle VI on Steam right now, which is $10 and includes DEFCON and SpaceChem both of which I recommend heartily, the bundle also includes two other games I'm not familiar with.
