I&#39;m on a mac as well, so keep that in mind.there&#39;s another indie pack on sale for the same price if you&#39;re interested. world of goo and VVVVV + others, but the one yesterday was badass, though.
I&#39;ve heard good about tropico and torchlight, machinarium is pretty swell as well, so i&#39;ve heard. (awards)

i&#39;d say wait if there&#39;s nothing that really catches your eye.

nook, you need to go to the re-education clinic.

the best way to save money is to not buy anythingor wait for sales like these, otherwise you will never have what you want.

material stuff, sure, but not buying anything is pretty lame. even if you already have everything, if you want something, a sale is the best way to obtain it, other than stealing of course. :)

Not interested. Sorry. I only buy games at retailers, and I didn&#39;t see any interesting games on that website.you have much to learn, then. :)

a lot of the games on steam are top-notch, and are at bargain bin prices. the only real downfall is that you don&#39;t have a physical copy of the game, but you can relate that to itunes or whatnot if it makes you feel any better.

there&#39;s a lot of games that aren&#39;t big enough to make it to a console release that are available online through steam and other digital distribution sources, though steam is usually the best (or at least my favorite)

and you get a slew of free community features once you buy just one game. so.. &#036;5, you get your game (or package of games) and unlimited use of the steam community, which includes IM and game connection options (invites and the like), keeping tabs on what your friends are doing, oh yeah. it&#39;s the wave of the future. unless, y&#39;know, another medium comes out that we&#39;re all blind to, or something.

doesn&#39;t float everyone&#39;s boat, that&#39;s great. glad you checked, though. :)

oh, and btw.. something went glitchy with the store page for the indie pack that was originally linked in first post, so it redirects you to the steam home page.

i was linking directly to that.. heh. just a heads up.

today we got left 4 dead 2 for &#036;5, supreme commander 2 for &#036;3.75, and an indie pack with most of the music games (audiosurf, beat hazard, bit.trip.beat or somesuch)

feel bad for splurging on audiosurf already :( oh well, didn&#39;t care much for beat hazard, really.

*bump* due to the orange box being on sale for &#036;7.50.

for those who don&#39;t know, that includes TF2, all Half-Life 2 games (so that&#39;s 3 games, more or less), and Portal, for &#036;7.50.

I understand you probably have Portal since it was free not too long ago, but if you don&#39;t own Half-Life 2 and want it, picking this up isn&#39;t a bad idea.

If you want TF2, but have the rest of the stuff in The Orange Box, pick this up. you&#39;re still saving &#036;12.50, as TF2 alone costs &#036;20.

so.. buy tf2 for cheap, get some other source games for free as a bonus.

as you may know, we have a fairly active TF2 group, though it&#39;s kinda hit or miss whether or not anything&#39;s happening.

now is the time to pick it up, if any. (unless you wanna press your luck and hope it goes on sale at a lower price for xmas)

Anyone know whether or not you can do anything like gift the games that you already have in one of the packs, like the Orange Box if you already have them? I want to get the pack, but it&#39;d be more enticing if I could at least gift TF2 and Portal to a friend of mine who doesn&#39;t have them.

best to check somewhere in support, though.

and yeah, just checked. on the orange box&#39;es store page,


Already own Half-Life 2 or Half-Life 2: Episode One?
Award your extra game to a friend when you purchase The Orange Box. Learn more here.

except.. when you click there, it doesn&#39;t list tf2 or portal as giftable that way.. only half life 2 and ep. 1. which is kinda balls, since it&#39;s a deal on all of them.. but oh well, i guess.

sorry bout that.

Should I still get it, and if not, what should I do with my &#036;2.50?eeh. if you can&#39;t play a game, not much purpose in having it, and hoping it gets a mac re-do is only wishful thinking.

you could buy an item or two in tf2 with that, star wars that&#39;s on sale, or wait for the xmas stuff that&#39;ll undoubtedly be headed our way.

or new years.

or weekend sales.

or mid-week sales.

you have enough to hold you over till then, yeah?

*bump* for the new sales, some kinda scavenger hunt.

buy games to have a chance to win games. makes sense, right?

hopefully there&#39;ll be some badass sales. chance of winning (and hats&#33; glorious hats&#33;) is cool, but if there&#39;s a game you want on sale, a sale is always fine.

so... *bump*
