Damn it Steam Sale.. It just woke me up and I picked up Trine 2 for £2.99 lol
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

I hope they spend some of the money they get from this sale on upgrading their servers because accessing them has been terrible lately.

Is anyone else finding it impossible to vote on today's deal? It never registers the vote. :(

I've found their servers to be a bit dodgy at the moment but, considering the crazy volume they've had to handle, it's understandable.

It got there in the end. :) I'm actually being really good this sale and to date have only bought one little poker game for £2. In fact it's really only the cheap but fun Indie games I'm interested in having had so much fun with Plants vs. Zombies.

You should buy YS: Oath - its like 4 euros/3 quid, and is a great little game.

I'm the same as you, I've bought a ton of fun indie games this sale - and Payday The Heist, which is super fun as well!

I reccomend Nimbus too, thats 75% off, GREAT indie puzzler, one of my all time favourites.

Except they get this level of server stress every sale, they should scale their systems to cover it...

Only bought one thing so far. Just the Ryder White expansion for Dead Island. Nothing else has tickled my fancy yet.

I didn't even know it was on sale :( Stupid sale not showing me things I want to see! *pouts in the corner*

Apart from most steam games having some sort of discount, you mean? :lol:

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2799277 - This link is helpful for the more obscure discounts, though it doesn't seem to include them all.

Bought 15 games so far, and had to stop myself buying half a dozen more.

Now this is a super bargain.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/3590/ Plants vs Zombies GOTY edition for a paltry £1.74.

The demo is basically the full game with a time limit so you can even have a good start and if you pay to unlock it then carry on where you left off. I still don't do very well at the IZombie mini game though.
