I don't usually use Steam, or do PC gaming in general apart from Minecraft and a bit of TF2 (mostly because my PC isn't that good for games, i think the limit for it is just about running L4D2), but today I did get Terraria, The Binding Of Isaac and Cave Story+ for £5.76 overall, which I believe is a very good deal in the Steam Sale. Sure, almost every PC gamer has those games already, but I can't wait to try them out for the first time:)

Welcome to the cult, Bulby. Terraria is definitely a good game, well worth whatever price it happened to be listed at. Cave Story+ is also a good snatch, and if you're into what Binding of Isaac offers you will get many hours out of the game. I personally found Isaac only good for one playthrough, but I've heard of many who have spent hundreds of hours with the game, so there is a large enough amount of content to justify the price.

The Steam Autumn Sale is live! Sooo...yeah...umm..I guess you can buy some games if you want? Hmm...

...A-ha! How has everybody been using/enjoying/despising the Steam Workshop? While I have yet to upload anything other than some custom Portal 2 levels, I would like to add something more substantial to a game's workshop.

I'm one of those people that has spent over 100 hours on Binding of Isaac. Awesome game if you know what you are getting into.

As far as the Autumn Sale goes, I bought Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic. I'm not a fan of RPGs, but since it's a highly acclaimed Star Wars game, I figure I should be able to enjoy it. Also, it's single player only so I can be as awful at the game as I want and no one will judge me.

Do you guys think the first Mass Effect is worth it if I've already played through Mass Effect 2?

It's the best game in the series, so yes.

The only way I've found to do so is to have your computer break. saved me money until I got a PS3

Got a few more games. Got Hero Academy, Psychonauts, Flicky (some old Mega Drive game I have for the PS3 Mega Drive Collection, actually really like it and got it for convenience more than anything else), Sonic Adventure DX and Toki Tori.

Seriously, Toki Tori is only 34p for the sale. You have no excuse not to buy it, wonderful game for that price.

As for the other games I mentioned before, I've only really played Cave Story, but I can safely say it is up there as one of my favourite games ever.

Total spent: £15.06. No too shabby I must say

There is The Humble THQ Bundle now. It includes Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon and Company of Heroes. Pay over the average and you get Saints Row: The Third too. Not really interested because I already have three of those games. Also, this bundle requires Steam and is Windows-only.

Big picture was just made available and has a ton of controller friendly games on sale to go with it.

@Reala Cool, I just checked it out.

Sonic Generations, Portal 2, and Alan Wake are now 75% off (in case anyone here still hasn't gotten them) until December 10th.

...in my pants.

not steam but there is a sale on a similar site called gog.com its for 8 bullfrog titles including the populous games, dungeon keeper games, syndicate etc, seems like a pretty good site for classics has a few games not on steam, anyone tried the site before? quite tempted to get a few games for it.

I occasionally use GoG. It's a good site with quite a few older games that you can't get on Steam. Good prices too.
Rollercoaster Tycoon collection for $3 is quite a steal.

Gog is a great site, they have tons of great older games that you can't get anywhere else. Also, Duke Nukem 3D is free, so go grab it.

Went for the bullfrog deal after all and got 9 free games too including ultima 4 which was a nice bonus to say the least, so definitely keeping an eye on that site.

Not sale related, but I bought Sonic 4 Episode 1 a while back and just tried to play it and after the Steam message that says the game is being prepared goes away nothing happens. I tried just about every solution suggested to no avail so that sucks. Funny enough, Episode 2 works fine though.

I've heard lots of good things about that game, but it looks SO dated. :S
