The Damage: Steam Summer Sale 2012

I've been rather busy (more on that later) and haven't posted anything on the recent Steam mega sale.  Though there has been some great coverage over at which I recommend you check out.  (especially surviving a steam sale)

I had no intentions of buying this sale (considering my PC malfunctions - new one on the way), but as usual I couldn't resist and am not sure I made the best use of my money.  DAMN YOU STEAM!!

Without further adieu, let's check out the damage:

Sale: Super Mario Galaxy

I usually don't post these sorts of things, but it seems that Amazon has Super Mario Galaxy (Selects) for sale for $14.99 right now.  This is the lowest I've seen it sold from Amazon so far and I'm a bit tempted even though it might be a month or two before I get my Wii back.  Considering SMG2 is still $40+ I think this is a great price point to get started with the series.

Hey, I've been good so far with the Steam Christmas sale and haven't purchased anything.  That's not like me at all!  :D  Then again I have dropped a good bit of cash on retail 3DS titles in the past 2.5 months. (~$115)

Anyone else tempted???

The Steam Beast

That dang old new years resolution isn't looking so hot and now I've gone and purchased three more...  The Autumn Steam sale looks pretty good and as usual you have to watch for good deals while trying not to get whipped into that buying frenzy.

I ended up purchasing three games from my wishlist: NightSky, LIMBO and Altitude.  All were under $3/ea at 75% off which I thought was a good bet.  As is my new mantra 'I wouldn't mind seeing them on 3DS' though that might be a stretch or a long wait.  I also would have liked to get NightSky on WiiWare, but I'm just not going to shell out the money right now.

Hm, there's zombie Driver for less than $3 as well...

NightSky just finished so I'm going to check it out for a second, though that download was very painful.  ISP service is either bad tonight or they're throttling us back..

Game Demos

I've downloaded a few demos recently and have been thinking about how they shape the purchase decisions I may make with games.  Mostly it falls back to my cheap bastard frugal style and wanting to get the most gaming bang for my bucks.

Without dragging on for another paragraph, just what was demoed?

Portal 2 - Week 1 reflections

It has roughly been a week since I purchased  Portal 2 and I thought I would take a few minutes and throw down some thoughts.

Steam MEGA-Sale roundup!

  It's undeniable that Steam is basically the premier digital PC gaming service and doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.  I'm sure we all have our gripes, but simply looking at the selection and considering the ease of use usually is enough to win you over.  I've even gone as far as re-purchasing games on steam due to broken CD's and/or to have them at my finger tips without futzing with physical media.

  So now that I've established how much I'm in love with Steam, how about that mega game sale that just ended?  In all honesty I let the Summer 2010 sale get a bit out of control and haven't really taken advantage of the items I purchased.  Read on to see how I fared in 2011.
