Steam summer sales

Anyone buying into this?

I bought about 10 games so far. Trine 2 is a steal.. Lot of good indie games too, if you're into those.

In a way, these summer sales kind of kill me though, because I do my real gaming on console, and didn't invest in a gaming computer. (At the time, I did not know about Steam summer sales, or that games could go for five dollars or less) So, I see something like, say, Mirror's Edge for 3 dollars, and while I can play it, we're talking 8-15 frames on average.. So it's a tough call getting it, or spending four or five times as much on the console versions for a better experience....

I bought Portal 2 for $5. And a few other small things thus far.

That Star Wars bundle is sorely tempting me, though. Battlefront 2 and the Jedi Knight games...**** yeah.

I would have bought the Star Wars bundle if i didn't have half of the games already.

I did get Saints Row 3, Hitman Blood Money and Dead Space 1 and 2 for less than 30 dollars total, which is pretty good.

The entire F.E.A.R. collection, including expansions, went for 10 dollars in a flash deal. O_o

I ended up buying only the first, with two expansions, and the third, for more than that.

Pretty sure I bought some SW bundle over winter because I have most of the games in the summer SW bundle. erm

Anyway this time around:

Tropico 3 (Might be fun)
Left 4 Dead 2 four-pack (For myself and a buddy + trade bait)
Witcher 2 (Trade bait)
Borderlands DLC (Traded for Torchlight)
Magicka Collection (For some guy overseas who can't get to the sales)

Also traded one of my spare copies of L4D2 for Two Worlds 2, which my craplaptop refuses to play no expression

Still to buy:

Morrowind/Oblivion if they go on flash or daily sale
GTA Collection
Arma II CO

Spent way too much so far though.

Seeing I "just" bought F.E.A.R. 1 and 3 (And even if I didn't), do I really want Max Payne 1 and 2?

From videos, gameplay looks pretty similar, but F.E.A.R. has a pretty good reputation on gameplay. Does Max have anything else to offer that it can't, gameplay wise?

SMB is as good as the hype says.

Binding of Isaac's another good one, also from Team Meat.

Max Payne is far from being similar to the F.E.A.R games no expression

Yeah, not even close.

Bought Dragon Age Ultimate so I can get Awakening and all the DLC. Just Cause 2 on a whim and KOTOR to replace my disc copy.

I see..

I'll consider it, than.

Right now, I'm more interested in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. bundle. From videos, it sort of looks like a mix of survival horror tension and atmosphere, realistic gunplay, and RPG elements...

Considering all the games I bought already, that one might be too much of a time commitment though.. Especially with Fallout 3 being one of the games on the docket.

Looks like 4X is having a free weekend for nearly their entire inventory. Gonna try and at least check them all out.

Only one I'll probably end up getting is the Endless Space collection though, since it's 2 dollars, and I'm planning on breaking my promise and getting No Man's Sky..

I jusy hope refunds are easy, in case my intel hd 620 onboard can't cut it (Supposesly Intel is supported, but my specific type wasn't on the list.. The neighboring types were.)
