    Don't do it, I bought them all and 3/4 of them run like pure ass. They are either buggy, have sound problems, won't display at proper res, are slow on new machines and that sort of stuff. Absolute crap.

    Don't worry, you have t-minus 40 hours to think about it.

    I do hesitate with very old games that are included in the packs, or sold for cheap. Unless its from Valve, they aren't supported that well.

    That's disappointing. Might consider the THQ pack instead.

    Man that THQ pack looks nuts. Pity I've already got Frontlines and Stalker.
    I'm tempted for COH, Red Faction & DOW2.
    But I dunno...

    If you add those three up then you'll end up paying more most likely.

    Worth getting? I was initially keen on grabbing FC2 but i don't like sandbox games and the bugs people have talked about has stopped me from grabbing it even at that price.

    Mmm fairly sure i convinced work to give me a pre-paid Visa Card as part of my Monthly bonus. This will help ease the pain.

    Osmos looks ok, it's a steal for $2.

    Just be careful of the antimatter levels, they look annoying as hell :p

    All the THQ games for $50 USD is insane... I already have half of those games otherwise I would bite.

    Sales are about the only time steam is worth it.

    I am trying really hard to not act like a stereotypical woman, .... which is buying items just because they are on sale.

    I must remember that I will save even more money by not buying anything at all!

    But damn that THQ pack looks like a years entertainment .... and I did just sign back up to EvE Online for a month ....

    Just found the demo of the game..pretty cool i guess, lets you relax and hover around getting bigger..the music does help as well.

    hehe, will take your word for it, as many others share a similar opinion on the game.

    So buying that THQ pack. That's insanely cheap!

    Probably Osmos as well. Not sure about Batman though. Seems like a game that's meant to be played on a console. I wish you could get the same deals on Xbox as well!
