    The gift pile doesn't seem to work properly here. I checked my inventory and also completed the Orcs Must Die achievement but only got two prizes/gifts.

    The achievement for checking your inventory gives two gifts, and it doesn't look like Orcs Must Die has given anything, oddly.

    Anyway, the actual gifts I received was a 50% off Valve games coupon and the Sam & Max Season 1 (which is pretty good). Only bought the Portal bundle today.

    It's that time of year again.
    28th June 6PM GMT start time for the steam summer sales.

    Is anyone looking for anything inparticular?

    I have saved up about £200 for the sale so it is now time to start getting some new games at 75% off.
    My main aim is to get the expansion for Arma 2 so I can play the DAYZ mod as it looks to be the best mod since Desert Combat for Battlefield 1942.

    Apart from that Max Payne 3 might be worth a go at £14.99.

    Thursday has been confirmed?

    I get paid on Friday, got 50 games in my wishlist so probably expecting to pay around £70 or so for what I can get my hands on.

    My problem is the likes of the NeoGAF Steam thread where a game will be on a deal and people will say it's well worth the price. I'm a sucker for 75% off :(

    Not much is on my radar actually. I might pick up some older games that I've missed or used to own on consoles.

    Arma 2 maybe. I fancy some strategy games too. Anyone know if Cities XL is any good?

    My Steam backlog is that bad that I don't even know if I own Cities XL. I THINK I do :LOL:

    I'm hoping that Anno 2070 gets a good discount.

    I'll check back then. There isn't much I'm after in general really. Got a few games on the go and I hate buying games for the sake of it.

    That's what EVERYONE says. And then the sale starts. And all kinds get reduced to 75% off and is available for £3. And you can't help yourself.

    For newbies to Steam sales:

    GOLDEN RULE - DO NOT BUY UNLESS IT'S A DAILY DEAL!

    Games will be reduced straight away, sometimes at 33% off, sometimes at 50% off. DON'T BUY THEM YET!

    Wait to see if they come up in a daily deal, where they'll be cheaper again (usually around 75% off). If it doesn't appear on a daily, then you can always pick the game up on the last day.

    So many people get burnt by buying a game, then it gets reduced even more the next day on a daily deal.

    Steam sale is now due to start 12th July.
    Which would be a good thing as that's the same day I get my Sky Fibre installed so will have 40MB internet the day the sale starts.

    As if what I heard that Max Payne 3 on PC is a 30GB download I will need it.

    No Arma bundle? That's a big surprise, might grab the Stalker bundle.

    Edit: Wait I just saw it's like $34 for the Stalker bundle? Fuck that!

    Company of heroes complete pack on -75%. Haven't played any rts since red alert 2, stronghold crusader times.

    Any1 got this already ? Hows multiplayer, wouldn't it be too harsh on newcomer since the game is already 5 yr old?

    Have not played the multiplayer but the single player is one of the best RTS games you will ever play.
