I thought it was so important it was worth mentioning twice
Well, actually I didn't mention per se. I merely alluded to it.
EDIT: And I see that now it's gone official in Europe as well. I wonder what took them so long.
Indeed it has, must have just been a blip.
A pretty long blip. About 30 minutes.
Valve time. It was only about fifteen seconds to them.
Just picked up the Civ V game of the year edition for £7.49, im not sure what else to get, batman is very tempting though better to get both or just the first one?
I reckon they were teasing us,
Just got to wait a few days now for it to download,
Not quite the saving I was looking for on ARMA2: CO, I'll probably still grab it as it's about as cheap as it seems to get.
Would have been nice to drop to about £10 though.
Unbelievable, but true, it's actually slightly cheaper in EUR as it's 14.99 EUR, which works out to about 11.50 GBP. I could get it for you if you want.
I surprised myself with how little I bought this sale.

3 Games out of that lot I wish I hadn't bothered with:
Star Wars: KOTOR = Had major problems getting it to run on win 7-64.
Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands= I didn't realize Uplay DRM needed to be installed plus the game controls feel really clumsy + graphics settings can't be changed... not even the resolution !
Wings of Prey= Can't even get this to start up, have tried disabling anti Virus & firewall and other tricks steam advise.
All the rest are great though, but I was always under the impression that steam only used there own DRM and any games purchased had been optimized to run on any machine that steam itself runs on.
Kotor ran fine on my machine, although I do have the original boxed 4CD game, so It's possible that was part of the solution.
Just google around, if you like RPG's; Kotor is well worth the time it takes to get it running. Just don't buy KOTOR2, it's an awful letdown.
Yeah I read a few of the metacritic reviews and it sounded really good. I'm not a huge RGP fan but was enjoying hellgate london a few months ago so I though i'd give it a try. Apparently KOTOR not running on newer machines is a well known problem (I should have checked the forums before I got it) Anyway I'll keep looking for workarounds to get it going. I got the title screen up last night after about 30 mins of faffing around. In the end a CTRL,ALT,DEL got it to the title but I was sick of it at that point and just made some mental notes to try next time.

There's definite mention of Windows 7 64-bit.
Thanks Phalanx, did everything suggested and it seems to be running ok now !
Enjoy your mayhem. And HK-47, possibly one of the best characters from any RPG, ever!
Thanks Tundra, should keep me busy for a good few months. And along with all the other steam stuff, I should be kept busy at least until 2013 !
