For obvious reasons, I'm considering playing the upcoming DC Universe MMO.

I'm also slightly intrigued at what I've seen of Guild Wars 2.

I have absolutely no interest in WoW.   :P

Crazy PC deals on Steam this week, including incredibly cheap gift packs of games.

I think that I'll probably buy a gift pack and give the games out to a couple of my buds on Steam and my brother, and the leftover can go to anybody here who wants them.

Which gift pack? Well, I'm not sure yet. It all depends on what strikes my fancy. Knowing my taste in gaming though, it might be a pack of something old and classic. For instance, I almost pulled the trigger on the Deus Ex gift pack yesterday. Deus Ex is considered to be one of the better games of all time, even if it is pushing a decade. But still, it is old and I realize that not everybody can get into it.

It also depends on my shallow wallet. I probably won't throw down more than $30 for one of these gift packs (Deus Ex was $12, for instance).

... And probably it will also have to be a game that I don't already own. A fellow still has to think about himself you know. I'd be severely tempted if Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines came up for sale, just because I want each and every person on the planet to play what I think is the best game ever made... But the last time I bought it for somebody they never bothered playing it because they couldn't get it to work right out of the box (it is buggy and takes some *small* amount of effort to get working), so I don't know if I'll do that again.

Oh yeah, and there is also a big sale at the ubisoft store. %50 off daily deals, today R.U.S.E. for $25 (R.U.S.E. is a rather unique WW2 rts for the PC).
Your mom!

Highlights of the Steam sale for Thursday were:
Batman: Arkham Asylum for $10
Kane and Lynch 2 for $5
A bunch of indie adventure games for $5 (was $60)

I was tempted to pick up Kane and Lynch 2.

The game packs were:
$15 for 10 Defense Grid: The Awakening
$20 for 12 AudioSurf
$25 for 6 Left 4 Dead 2
$35 for 10 Puzzle Quest 2

Nothing here is really turning me on. I briefly considered AudioSurf. And then I didn't.

If Killing Floor game packs go on sale, you can all pretty much consider yourselves proud new owners of that game. I don't care how much the pack costs, I love me some Killing Floor and you should too.
Your mom!

I'm not familiar with how sharing on Steam works, but if you find a good deal on a bundle pack, I'll go 50/50 with ya via PayPal.

Well, so far nothing is really striking my fancy. The sales go on until the 29th and if nothing jumps out at me by then I'll just buy a pack of the best thing they have on sale for that day, whatever that may be.

I'm still hoping for some Killing Floor.

I'll decide tonight, but probably either World of Goo or Trine.

><

Yeah, about that... See, I had this Calc 3 exam this morning, and when I got home from school last night all I did was study for the exam and blow off some steam by watching a Netflix romantic comedy... And I kind of forgot about picking up the pack of World of Goo... Soz mates!

Okay, this time I super promise that if another reasonably priced multipack of games comes around before Xmas I'll pick it up for the team. Hopefully the selection will be better, but I'll jump on whatever presents itself first.
Your mom!

I'm in no hurry.  I probably won't be playing much until the Spring anyway.  Just let me know if you find a good deal and I'll throw some PayPal your way.   :)

YOu've already missed a few like Shadowrun for 80msp and today is Viva Pinata for 80msp (75p or 99c).

Continuing the GFWL sale, today is Max Payne 2 for a dollar (which I just bought).

Anyone get the impression that GFWL is one of those things that Microsoft decided to do just for the sake of fulfilling their pathological need to compete, however badly, in every realm of technology? It is so ramshackle and featureless, but they just couldn't let Steam have all the fun.

I agree, but they do have the odd good deal ... like Age of Empires 3 Collection for 10p/c
