    Portal 1 and 2 for $7.50. It's probably about time I jumped on this bandwagon....

    I bought a 10 cent game on gamersgate the other night... With my 15% off lifelong discount courtesy of the IGN Prime stuffup, it came down to 8.5 cents, but then got rounded up to 9 cents.. Of course, I didn't pay anything for it as I had leftover blue coins... That said, it was a 1.34mb HTML/Flash game and is more or less a complete farce.. lol

    It gave me a free gamersgate achievement tho.. :) That was more than worth the 90 blue coins I spent on it..

    Force Unleashed 2 is the new flash deal... Might have to jump on it for $5... Hopefully number 1 goes on sale as well.

    edit: number 1 is on sale for the next 12 hours as well.

    I know and understand the complaints behind it, hence why I've waited until it's going to get as cheap as it possibly will (for the next 5 years anyway).

    Not when you have to have the current daily deal game in order to get them etc :p

    Plus I'm a huge sucker for TF2 related items, so I'd have to do them :D

    Just bought FU 1 and 2. I'd been eyeing them off for a good year or so, so why not?

    I got offered the a bunch of the $50 packs for around $35 from a Russian guy, and looking through them they aren't even worth that (for me anyway), I either have too many of the games or (like in Strategy First's case) the quality just doesn't seem to be there

    The Steam client / website can be a little shaky... it *is* available - though at times it disappears for no reason

    yeah my biggest beef with the Indie packs is there's only 1, maybe 2 in each pack which I'm interested in / or I have the rest of the titles in the pack. Will be a pain if I can't gift the extras, as in most cases the discount on the individual titles is bugger all.
