I don't, and I'm a PC user. I was waiting for it to go on sale, and boy did I get lucky! Now, if only TF2 will go on sale, along with HL2 EP2 :(

Well I`m using a mac and, despite what some people say, it runs games perfectly. I run portal with all settings on high and no frame rate issues. So if it can run portal on high, pretty sure it can run other valve games well too. For anyone here who has steam, send me a FR. My name is chucko.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, would you kindly?

How come you haven't picked up the Orange Box yet? You get all that stuff plus HL2 and Ep 1. Unless you already have those, I suppose.

If you can run Portal on high, you can likely run HL2 and HL2 ep1 on high. HL2 ep2 should also run on high, but it is a little bit more taxing. Team Fortress 2 however, is a different story... It takes a pretty beefy computer to be able to play it on high.

Should update this to say that there's a SEGA Sales Week going, on, with today's deal being a collection of average games that have a space theme that are all 75% off.

Too bad most of those games suck. Universe at War is pretty good, though. Especially for the price. Anyone know if Space Seige is any good? It looks fun, but looks ain't everything.

@Mickeymac While I haven't played the game, I read the 1-UP review and it said that you couldn't move and shoot at the same time. That may change your opinion of the game.

I heard there was a problem with the controls, but it doesn't sound that bad. The potential problems here are the UI and the lack of weapon variety and special skills, as well as the linearity and the lack of AI variety...you know what, screw it. It doesn't sound like it's even worth $5.:P

Sins is too slow for my taste. Even for a 4X game. Just lots of waiting for stuff to happen. And the missions the A.I. Guys give you are terribly unfair.

Thought I'd do a bit of a quick update for you guys. We currently have some Neocore games on sale. The games range from above average to slightly below average. Also, the Sega Genesis games were released, all of them starting at the price of $3, which is basically a steal compared to the other prices on the console digital distribution systems.

I think HL2 is $7. I bought Sins on Impulse, it was only $4.

@Ravage Don't forget that the sale is on the "Game of The Year" edition. ;)

EDIT: Also, there's a 50-cent sale on a game called Eversion. I haven't played the game myself, but from what critics have said, the game starts off all bright and colorful and then suddenly has a big shift in tone.

Same, and wish I had the available 20.00 too, but right now I rather spend it on a game that I can actually run.

Accompanying the option to pre-order Fallout: New Vegas on Steam, Bethesda is having a sale on some of their "Game of The Year Edition" games! The sales include being able to get Fallout 3 for $25, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for $8.50, and Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind for $5. With this and that Batman: Arkham Asylum sale going on, I think I'm going to be broke. :'(
