    I think I played SW Battlefront a few years back, it's quite meh. It was a third-person BF2 clone at the time I think.

    Remind me again how Star Wars Week turned into LucasArts Weekend... Probably, when they ran out of premium Star Wars games to peddle... :p

    In any case, the new and improved versions of Threepwood vs. LeChuck (with special guest appearances by Marley) are off 50% this weekend.

    Tried Star Wars Battlefront when it first came out. The game is a bit of a mess, frankly; I found the controls to be unwieldy and unintuitive. Just a standard shooter game, really. Nothing that original.

    Pre-Purchase Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, get Tomb Raider: Legend free!

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/35130/

    Must admit, this new Lara Croft is starting to work on me, especially when I saw the words "Co-Op"! For under a tenner, two games aren't bad!

    I've been looking to buy Legend for a while, accidentally bought a second Underworld by mistake cos I couldn't remember which one I didn't have :lol: All the more reason to try this, probably would have paid a tenner for Legend!

    I looked at Droplitz and couldn't see the point. Even for £1.60, which is the cost of a 10-15 minute bus ride for me, I'll pass.

    Serious Sam Gold Pack

    Both HD + original First and Second Encounters included (or purchasable separately) and any mutliple copies from the Gold Pack are giftable.

    Not sure on the UK price but it's $10.

    Hell yes! Only reason I haven't picked it up til now is cos I sucked so much at actually building anything I didn't think it'd be worth the tenner. Last time I played was just before it hit version 10, given how polished it was even then it's gotta be worth £3. Away to buy :D

    Edit: Huh that means it clearly hasn't been a tenner for a while, my bad!

    Yup, it started out as a mod then Valve offered to let him sell it. Up to version 9 was free mod, 10 and up is fully supported Steam integrated game. The ultimate HL2-esque sandbox :D

    One thing I don't know; it used to be you could only play with assets from Source games you owned, is that still the case? Also is there any L4D stuff in it now?

    I bought it ages ago and installed it, gave it 10 mins. It didn't grab me as a game. I couldn't work out where the fun was :worried:

    I'm open to giving it another go if someone can explain exactly what I can do!

    Youtube gmod for inspiration. There's also a lot of fun user-created maps. I remember playing on one with a fully constructed house and two buttons, one to blo0w the house up and one to reset it. It kinda played like a mini BC2 attack, the house came apart under gunfire too.

    If you can find a good server where people actually want to build and experiment it can be immense fun.

    I used to spawn several million crates on top of each other, then spawn myself a rocket launcher and see how fast I could make my processor cry :thumb:
