Forums - PC Discussion - steam sale buyers remorse thread - what did you get?

Kantor said:
  • Audiosurf - Haven't touched and probably never will
  • Bad Company 2: Only played the single player, which is cliched, slow and lame.
  • Fallout: New Vegas - Haven't played yet, but will start soon.
  • Half Life 2 Episodes - Despite the fact that I didn't much like HL2. Bored of Episode 1 after about half an hour.
  • Just Cause 2 - Very happy with this purchase.
  • Star Wars: Battlefront II - For the sake of nostalgia. Tip: it's a lot worse on PC than on consoles.
  • Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - Haven't played yet. Loved it on PS2, but didn't much like the original Splinter Cell on PC

So all in all, not fantastic, but not awful either.


Yay someone else sees it. Garbage compared to the 1st.

I recommend you try the multiplayer. 'Tis great if you have any friends to play with you.

??? You're one of the very few that I've seen/heard say that.

 

OT: 

  1. Shatter - pretty good but way too short
  2. BFBC2 pack - one of my favorite multiplayer games ever already. Single player not so much
  3. Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - have not tried yet
  4. Plants vs. Zombies - awesome little game. Funny, addicting and challenging at times.

 

 

I actually find the Half-Life games birung as hell to :| I can see the quality in them , but they are also waaaay overhyped IMO. Hell, I managed to finish Quake 4 sp, but never finished more then half of HL2 :)) No pun intended



Recettear, Empire: Total War (and Napoleon), Flight Control HD, Terreria, Dwarfs!?, Zen Bound 2, and Zombie Driver.

And fuck me, I forgot to get King Arthur. Maybe next time.



BIT.TRIP.BEAT - played a little, enjoyed it.
Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West - played when it was free, some of my friends own it
Flight Control HD - probably play it when I have nothing else to do
The Polynomial - just got this one for the ticket
Beat Hazard - Ultra - I like what this DLC adds to the game
AI War Bundle - probably will not like it very much due to it's interface, but I don't regret it since some of that money will go to charity
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution - I like the series, and since this one ditched GFWL, even better

In total: 18,95€

Got 30 tickets in total, redeemed:

Veteran's Helmet for Retribution - I'm a little disappointed it's just a Space Marine skin for multiplayer
AaAaAAA!! bonus missions
Killing Floor characters
Berserker Suit - even though I don't have the game, yet
Magicka content - ditto, don't own game
Golden Ship - maybe now the ship will be easier to spot when things get hectic
Summer Shades
Portal Snorkels - again, don't have the game
Defense Grid maps
Alien Breed 2 - hey, free game

Jamestown : Played a few hours
Defense Grid : Resurgence pack

Not a lot of game, cause my backlog :/



Dead Space 2 - Loving it
Grand Theft Auto IV Complete - Modded it's awesome, originally it sucks. Definitely worth $10 though.
Terraria - Awesome
Just Cause 2 - Pretty good, worth $5
New Vegas - Barely played so far, but enjoying it at the moment
Beat Hazard - My one regret, this is crap.
Civilization V - Best purchase of the sale. 

Overall I did great. Bought awesome games that I wanted to play, and really enjoying them. 



If I had to rank the purchases (based on quality, not value):

  • Audiosurf - A brilliant and innovative title.
  • Bad Company 2: Only played the single player, which is cliched, slow and lame.
  • Fallout: New Vegas - Haven't played yet, but will start soon.
  • Half Life 2 Episodes - Despite the fact that I didn't much like HL2. Bored of Episode 1 after about half an hour.
  • Just Cause 2 - Very happy with this purchase.
  • Star Wars: Battlefront II - For the sake of nostalgia. Tip: it's a lot worse on PC than on consoles.
  • Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory - A lot of fun. The controls are a little fiddly, but much better than the original.

1) Just Cause 2

2) Chaos Theory

3) Audiosurf

4) Battlefront II

5) Bad Company 2

6) Half Life 2 Episodes

I purchased the THQ bundle. A pretty neat list of games for a good price. I regret not getting Just Cause 2 or Civilization V
