Gotta love CS-S, out of practice these days so when I do pop on I get my arse handed to me on a plate.

Tried that dreamkiller game, played it for 20mins then deleted it, thoroughly pants

Seemed to me like a serious sam clone with all the comedy surgically removed.

It really does bring serious sam to mind, all the weird dream stuff made me think of psychonauts. Any game that mixes serious sam with psychonauts must be the greatest game ever, yes? Dreamkiller says no.

I have to agree, although I gave it maybe 45 mins. Now deleted ... thank god it was a FREE weekend!

I could see the Serious Sam similarities, and I think it is the Painkiller engine as it's the same guys who did Painkiller Overdose (not tried that). Have to say it did give me the willies when I turned around and had a massive spider looming over me ... the game really needs tweaking, something released now should play much smoother. It felt like a mod to me and for 20.99 ... not for me.

Got to agree with that. I looked a bit like a doom or quake style mod from the screenshots, which is the only reason I bothered to download it. Good job I don't have a monthly download amount. Would have been annoyed at downloading 10gb or whatever it was.

I think all of the kalypso games are on offer now. http://store.steampowered.com/publis...dia%20Digital/ Not for me personally, but maybe for someone else.

Not for me either although I may have been tempted if there was a collectors pack including all the games.

Mostly a bit meh there, with one exception

Ceville is really quite good if you like MI style adventure games, has a demo available too.
I'd highly recommend giving it a go

Not trying to teach you to suck eggs, but I always switch my Steam location to France when it gets bogged down. Obviously I'm not French; I don't smell, or fancy my mum, but they do seem to have a better connection when there's a new release/big update Steamside.

Bought CS-S also, and through lack of practice got wiped out in record time. Rah!

Actually, it looks far more than just a few specials. I clicked on the Flash content (I have Flashblock) and there is a large holiday sale by quite a few publishers.

It's likely you'll find something you were thinking of buying.

Hmm, tempted by Operation Flashpoint, but even at 15 I don't think I'll bother.

Oh, and on a related note I've just completed Mirror's Edge tonight, and that's definitely worth the 3 odd asking price.

I'd get it, but I've already got it on the Xbox, and it seems like it'd work better on a console with a controller, than a PC with QWERTY.

On a very related note, if you buy a pack from Steam, can you gift the games you already own? I'm thinking of picking up the Valve Pack for 40, and I already own the Orange Box and L4D2.
