Does anyone have any idea how long this sale is going on? I'm not sure if I can afford for it to go on much longer.
Steam Summer Sale going on now! - Page 4
Another 8 days or so. It's about two weeks total.
Yeah, I hear that the Duke multi is fine, but to me, it means owning Duke. Look, it's not like it's the worst game ever, it's just not very good. It's money that can be spent elsewhere, in my opinion.
That's a terrible price for Sniper Elite V2, but the game is kinda fun. It plays like a basic 3rd person stealthy sniper game...until you fire a round into some poor fool. Then it goes all slow mo, bullet time. And then the bullet hits and it's insanely graphic, X-Ray Mortal Kombat style, bullet shattering the skull and exploding the eyeball kills. Or popping both testicles.
I think it's still $15 on Amazon AND it's a Steamworks game, which means you just take the code, enter it into Steam and boom, you've got a new game in your collection.
This sale is giving me tons of games to play with people and I have like six people on my steam friends. So begging for friends in this thread, Dedant on steam. Come be the only other English speaking person playing Company of Heroes with me.
In the spirit of that - I'm NotAGun on Steam but I haven't done much (any) multi-player besides a few free MMOs.
I thought the sale only lasted a week and was looking forward to Thursday roll around after buying and gifting my way through the weekend. It's hard to refuse some of these titles when they're cheaper than when I rented them in the past. I don't think my hard drive can take much more.
Bought Cave Story+, Dead Space 1/2, Half-Life 2, Ep. 1/2 and Tomb Raider Anniversary, Mirror's Edge so far. Still have the humble bundle, LA Noire and Deus Ex to play from before. Some of these deals can wait a year (Sorry Grand Theft Auto).
Steam ID is my old alias, darthchocula. I've got Left 3 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, Portal 2 and Dead Space 2 on tap for multiplayer. And Ricochet.
I'm MechaStatham on Steam. Definitely up for some Borderlandsing, some Chewer Payday sessions would be a laugh too I reckon. Also have TF2 and Killing Floor uninstalled ATM, but could be persuaded to get them set up again if Chewer games are in the offing.
I'm your huckleberry
Okay seriously, this fuckin thread has turned into one helluva love-in. We're like a commune of gaming hippies - I frikkin love it.
A-Pathetic - thank you sir, you're a scholar and a gentlemen.
Now all aboard the Electro Kool-Aid Gaming Chud Express! Next stop on the freakout train, peace, love, happiness and steam sales!!!
Chud is officially one of the only things keeping the black dog from my door right now - I thank you all.
This is the nicest thread I've been involved in on the internet...ever. We all should join the CHUD Steam group.
My steam name is: PakAttakManiak. Add me.
Also, does anybody recommend a good coop survival games other than the Left4Dead games?
Anybody else have non-portal FPP games to recommend?
The only one I can find that fits the bill is Quantum Conundrum and that's too new to get any significant chunk taken out of its price.
Also, I love this thread.
I'd be up for some co-op puzzle solving in Portal 2 if someone is interested. I just joined the CHUD.com user group and my handle is darklingscribe.
I got this last summer, I believe. I usually go to that if I've had a bad day and simply need some unstructured sandbox mayhem ... by which I mean you advance by acquiring "chaos" points. What's not to love?
BTW, there is a CHUD steam group. You can see who is playing on Steam from the CHUD sewers.
@Civ V. I bought it last year and played with some Chud players. Multiplayer is just too long, and getting play times coordinated and not have a game issue was kind of hard. I just bought the Gods and Kings expansion for Civ V. It is hands down better than Civ IV for me. I have played Civ since Civ III. Civ V does nice things with religion that really makes it worthwhile. I won a UN vote last night only because I chose the proper religious aspects that later fueled my science (Ahh, you Swedish jungle loving people who, with their Celtic allies, crushed Attila the Hun and Isabella. I know this sounds a lot like the Civ 5 article online from a couple weeks ago, but the cultures were random. ) I nearly lost early on because of some severe setbacks with Attila and Isabella. I am digging it hard. I have played 5 full games, standard maps, 12 city-states, etc, and am loving it.
Civilization V: The Celtic Chronicle is tons of fun to read. It is an Age by Age account of one player's game. Almost makes me want to do the same with my games (minus the slide show format...cause that is a pain to read. )
I mostly play single-player (ok, pretty much exclusively), but I'm in the CHUD group with the name CHUXBRONSON986. So far I've grabbed Darksiders, Ys Origin, Legend of Grimock, Trine 2, Indie Bundle 2, the Dungeon Siege Pack, and Metro 2033, not to mention a few awesome gifts from the very awesome mongycore. To answer my previous question in the thread, yes, the sale does own me.
I'm going to have to join the Chud group as soon I figure out how. Once again, I'm Dalynm. I usually only play single player, and probably still will for a while (Alpha Protocol and Hitman: Blood Money), but when Borderlands 2 comes out, I just may be down for some multiplayer. I played through the first one single player, but I keep hearing that it's way fun multiplayer. I may also have to get a headset with microphone (is that what they call those whatchamacallits these days?).

Just Cause 2 is pretty goddamn fun. And again, since it's PC, you can get some sweet mods, including unbreakable and infinitely long cable. It's one of those video game ass video games, like Saint's Row the Third, where it cares more about being fun than anything else. And it looks really good!
Killing Floor is L4D with all the story and creepiness stripped away and a Counter-Strike purchase system stuck in. It's fun, but it doesn't have charm or polish of L4D. But with a couple of buds, it's def a good time.
And if you haven't played Bioshock, do it. It's a modern classic for a reason.
Yeah, Just Cause 2 is an absolute blast. I've never managed to make it that far in the game because I always get caught up making stuff go boom in the most gleefully insane ways possible. Also, great mods. GREAT mods.
Ok, here's an update, because I've played a ton of games. I don't know if that's sad or not. Oh, well.
STALKER series. If you can only get one, get Pripyat. But get at least one. Clear Skys is the redheaded stepchild of the bunch. It's a hella good series, though.
LA Noire. I liked it. It's an adventure game, not a GTA game. I had no major problems with characters or story, but I recognize that others do. For $5, it's majorly worth it.
Carpe Fulgar Collection. I'm buying Fortune Summoners because Reccetear is a delight. It's a JRPG where you play as the shop owner all the heroes buy from, because your dad took out a loan and then died and you have to pay it back or go bankrupt. It's hilarious and fun. The whole pack is good if you can stomach Japanese shit.
Thief bundle...you should be shot if you don't own the Thief games. The BEST sneaky games ever.
Meat Boy is great if you hate yourself. It's very well made.
Indie Bundle (a couple of Giant Bomb Quick Look links, cause GB is great) - Dredmore is a funny roguelike. I rather enjoyed it. QUBE I just bought, haven't played yet. Avadon is old school CRPG goodness. Vessel is a cool, steampunky, fluid dynamics puzzler. Zombie Driver is a silly little top down action game where you drive over zombies and shoot them.
Also, Need For Speed Most Wanted is VERY GOOD. It's by the Burnout guys.
Also, beg, borrow or steal to get Bastion, one of last year's best games. It's amazing and the soundtrack is super fantastic, too.
Ah, now that it's changed...Old Sins, Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity (love that name) is $5. Is good, is very good. Real time strategy game, bordering on 4x territory. Looks great, too.
All Total War games on sale. They're a mix of real time strategy combat and turn based strategy world building. I've only played Rom and Medi. When you go to fight someone in Rome, your general marches in front of your troops, giving a rousing, "Kick their asses and send them to Hell for ROME!" speech that is badfuckingass.
Dunno if I can pass up Call of Pripyat for $3.74.
Problem is, I'll never play it. I've lost count of the amount of times I downloaded Shadow, played for an hour, and then uninstalled. Not because I didn't like it, but because I swore that I wouldn't ruin the awesome experience I knew I would have until I got a rig that could handle it with max settings and mods.
I was coming in to ask about this, consider that bundle bought.
The Carpe Fulgar Collection also intrigues me. I love the idea behind it, but it seems like it would prove to be a giant time sink and I loathe randomly generated dungeons, though I can't really put my finger on why.
