    Just like to point out Hotline Miami and are under the $10 mark at the moment, though might be worth waiting until they go on the Indie Sales.

    KotOR 1 has the 75% discount too, though for some reason isn't advertised.

    Combined with SWTOR going free to play, it's like 2+8 campaigns lined up for cheap as chips. ;)

    Hotline Miami

    Recommended. Frantic action somewhat similar to super meat boy in quick deaths/retrys but with weapons and no platforming.

    There are so many games in my list that I've never even installed... But 2 months of holidays and a stream sale is always a bad combination.

    Terraria and the Witcher 2 are worth grabbing on the cheap atm. Arma 2 Combined Ops is 40% off as well, but if you're only interested in that for DayZ then hold off until the standalone alpha that should be out before the end of the year.

    Just bought age of empires 3 for no other reason than I loved AoE2 black forrest 4 hour battles at QGL at 4am in the morning....

    Went to check out Fallout 3 and discovered I own it and have never played it... guess that is what Steam sales do.

    I really didn't enjoy fallout 3, tried three times to get into it and eventually got 20 hours in wondering when it was going to get good. New Vegas was a lot better, but I was so burned out on it all after fallout 3 that I stopped NV a few hours in.

    A new set of Flash titles are now available: Dear Esther, Two Worlds 2, Dungeon Defenders, Dead Island, Train Simulator 2013 and Rage.

    Remember that if the title you want isn't on a Daily Deal, Flash Sale or Indie Sale wait until the very last day as it may appear. Also Nerf I heartily recommend try New Vegas again, its a really great game and the DLC are actually really well done and not just half-baked content. Also Fallout 3 is rough to get into, but I'd recommend it as well, a great open-world RPG.

    Yeah I'm going to get back to NV, eventually. Tbh have all these part-finished games like dishonored and NV now, which I'm not playing, it's a mess I tells ya.

    edit: Aaand just bought the bard's tale for $2.49, sold on the humour and cleavage pretty much..

    Max Payne seems cheaper from GMG, unsure if it works for Australians and unlocks on steam though - http://www.greenmangaming.com/

    I found it pretty shit when I tried it (the multiplayer), but the game is worth it for the single player, especially at that price

    it uses their own capsule client. so no steam activation i'm afraid.

    So whats the USA price for max payne 3?
    www.steamprices.com/au <- a very handy website

    Posted 09:13pm 23/11/12
    Forgot about that site fpot, thanks.

    The biggest rip off according to that site: COD: MW2 - $67.50 AUD vs $15 USD. OMFG.

    anyone played ravaged? looks fun from the trailiers...

    Steam says its "an intense online multiplayer first-person shooter." I highly doubt there will be any aussies playing it.

    anyone else having problems with steam download speeds? it seems to be going very slow and disconnecting me from the web after an hour or so

    Posted 11:42pm 23/11/12
    I always find i get shitty steam download speeds. Dota2 updates weekly and even when its a small DL, i might get speeds 0.5-200kps. I find pausing and restarting the DL speeds it up for a while. Its easy enough with 200mg updates or so but a pain with big ass DLs.

    Usually happens during these Steam sales, things get pretty rough on their servers.

    We had a giveaway previously, its an interesting title with more play on vehicles it seems. Would have to check out a Lets Play or something.

    Edit: Here you are;

    Damn, was starting to look like I might get out of this sale without buying anything, but I just grabbed Deadlight for $8. I can live with that though if thats the extent of the damage.

    Recommended purchases for today: Hotline Miami, Mark of the Ninja, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, L.A. Noire (if you haven't already from last sale), Costume Quest.

    I'd suggest Borderlands 2 if you haven't gotten that already, but not from Steam. Green Man have it at a dollar cheaper with their 25% voucher (GMG25-G4VDR-0ZL4Q) which is also a Steam key.

    I got LA Noire for $3.50 or something, still haven't played it... I don't even know what type of game it is tbh, strangest purchase ever.

    You'll enjoy it nerfy, it has a great story. It has a big focus on detective work and questioning people and shit to figure out the mystery.
    It can be slightly boring sometimes due to the high amount of story and scenes etc going on but all in all it's a great game.

    Torchlight 2 for 9.99
    Arkham City for 7.49

    niceeeeeee!

    Definitely recommend Torchlight 2, get a four pack if you can its the best deal. So much chaos on my screen.

    I grabbed that mark of the ninja yesterday, fuck what an awesome buy, excellent little time waster.
    Torchlight 2 is awesome, New game plus on HC Veteran is fucking insane. dun even wanna think about Elite difficulty.
