Anyone pick up anything good? Notice I bought an extra copy of Left 4 Dead to raffle?

I also both Shattered Horizon and a whole bunch of other crap that I'm sort of excited about. God, it's going to take forever to play through all the games I bought...

I'll probably get Braid or some other game. My brother got like 10 games, but he has a bank account and I don't. If I had one I'd buy alot more. I was going to get Left 4 Dead for like 10 bucks on the 30th but I missed it by just a tiny bit.

Also PV you need DirectX10 with Windows Vista or Windows 7 to play that game.

Yes I meet those requirements, in fact I can play a whole ten seconds of the game :(

Can you graphics card+processor handle it? Maybe try putting the graphics on the lowest settings.

I seem to have a similar problem with Mirror's Edge steam edition. On like the 7th level it always freezes in the same place and I have yet to get help from steam on this. I even tried reinstalling it multiple times :\

Yes my computer should meet the requirements. I'll reinstall it later or something.

Hmmmm, I didn't know what to do with street fighter, on one hand it is a good game, on the other, it is such a console game. XD I didn't buy it in the end, but I sort of regret doing so.

I wanted to gift a copy of Portal to some of my friends the other day, because it was dirt cheap (5 dollars). Meh. I already own audiosurf, and I bought it on a weekend deal so I spent 2.50 as well.

Hmmmm didn't buy C&C but I did pick up a copy of CSS for a friend.

I finally got Shattered Horizon working, after updating my nvidia drivers. It's sort of cool to try out and play, but I would have been pissed if I paid full price for it. $5 was a fair deal I think.

I just bought Torchlight today, it was 75% off and I heard it was pretty good. I haven't gotten the chance to download it yet (I JUST bought it).

Torchlight is single player though :( Didn't realize it when I bought it

Yah, but it's a good Diablo-like game you can play to pass the time until Diablo 3 comes out :P

Bioshock as well, though I'm not really pumped to play it, or even plan to play it anytime soon, I couldn't pass up the deal at $5.

I also bought Torchlight, under the knowledge that multiplayer is being modded in very soon.

I'm thinking of writing a review for Medieval II Total War, it is extremely extremely extremely good. I underestimated how much I would enjoy it...
