Never mind. It worked again.

Well then. Thank fuck this is over. Forgive me, father, for I have sinned. :pray: Gravely and repeatedly!
What have we got?

Magicka - 2,49€
Magicka: Vietnam & Magicka: The Stars Are Left - 2,73€
Batman Arkham City + Harley Quinn's Revenge & Gotham City Impostors + Mega XP boost solo - 18,23€
Prince of Persia (2008) - 2,49
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution - 4,99€
SPAZ - 2,24€
Psychonauts - 2,24€
Warhammer 40k: Space Marine - 13,38€ (Unfortunately I missed the really good deals on that one, so I only got 33% off)
Oh, and Blacklight: Retribution, but that's for free, so it doesn't count. :mrgreen:

That's a total of 48,89€ for 9 games and several DLCs. I've paid more for single retail games.
All in all, I am very pleased, as those games should keep me going until Christmas. My wallet is nowhere to be found, though. I do think I hear it crying, though, so it's probably curled up in a foetal position and hiding behind the sofa.

I bought Civ 5 when it first came out, but for some unknown reason, it simply stopped working. When I fire it up, it turns my monitor off! :lol:

Nevermind, tbh I think 4 is better than 5, and 3 is better than 4. Civ 2 is probably the greatest, but the graphics are no longer really playable for me.


I really enjoyed Alpha Centauri. I loved the unit design feature.



The first time I played that, it felt like I was on drugs! :lol:

I haven't yet no. I played Civ 4 for a while before, I enjoyed it but never got into it. I always preferred EU3. I heard a lot of good reviews so went for Civ5.



I spent £140. I am, to be frank, a bit of a twat.

I'd be interested to hear your opinion when you get round to playing it. I spent about £30-40, but I'm feeling like a bit of a twat too.

Fuck it, I've wasted money on worse things. :lol:

Hmm, possibly why I liked it so much. :lol:

Civ, even the recent lesser version, is always going to be good value for money and have a huge replayability on one factor alone: mods.

If you pop over to http://forums.civfanatics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=395

You'll find some absolutely amazing mods, ranging from scenarios that focus in on a particular area and period of history, to complete overhauls of all the systems.

Just as I was getting to the end of a very long shelf-life in Civ 4, I started playing the dark fantasy mod Fall from Heaven. It was plain awesome. It was such a complete overhaul (including a full magic system) that there were mods built on top of that by other users, and even mods of those mods. It became such a huge thing that Firaxis even included a scenario of it in an expansion pack.

What you need to do is identify what you like/dislike about the game, and then go and find a mod maker who has the same ideas as you. There's bound to be something to float your polynesian raft.

I'm playing Eufloria. I like it, basically you plant flowers on asteroids and those flowers grow seeds which attack other flower colors' seeds and plants, and it's a little like a real-time Risk™, except prettier.

Bugger! I didn't realise the Steam sale was coming to an end - there are more things my wallet doesn't want me to buy! :(

What a typical PC gamer I am. Got myself hosts of shiny new games, half of them AAA and what have I been playing yesterday? SPAZ. Hella fun, and surprisingly deep, once it gets going. Magicka is pants-pissingly funny as well, although it does tend to stutter a bit. Turns out it doesn't like integrated GPUs on Laptops.
Today I'll try Space Marine and Batman, although I foresee that once I get going with one of them, the other will sit in my backlog until I'm done.

Just Cause 2 is way too much fun with the stupid grappling hook. It's really silly to car-surf one of the gangsters car and keep tethering the baddies to the bumper and yank them out of their turrets as we drive by, but I spent about 10 minutes doing that.

Strap them to a jet. That requires a bit of work, but it's so worth it, once you take off, then get on top of the jet and surf it into a military base.

I was a little disappointed when I stole a helicopter and flew to the giant airship that I could neither pilot it nor crash it. Fun jumping off, though.

Wonder if I can get Wipeout on this Steam thing? It is an online shop, right.

Yup. I don't think they have that, though.
