Default Steam sale 2K games

Steam has a sale on 2K games at the moment. All games in the civ franchise are 50% off untill monday but they're doin daily deals within the sale as well offering even more discount. Borderlands franchise is todays deal and has a 75% discount, it wouldn't surprise me if we'd see something like that on Civilization as well over the weekend.

So if you want to buy Civ V or some of the DLC keep your eyes open, there might be a daily deal and if not you can get the 50%. Also Civ III & IV are on sale Civ III complete is 2.49 and Civ IV complete sells for 12.50 and that includes the Colonization remake. Might be worth it if your CD's are broken, like mine, or you're just too lazy too get them from the attic.

Nice find. Maybe I'll pick up some of the DLC for civ5.

If you like single player shooters and enjoy looting the same places over and over, Borderlands is a lot of fun. I have it on PS3, but the DLC is costly in the playstation store. So I picked up the GOTY-edition on Steam some time ago, just because it's so cheap.

Diable is propainesque for Diablo I guess? Yeah, it has some RPG elements like character building with levels and perks, and the missions are also like, well, missions. The story element of the game is a bit poor, and the missions are repetitive. That's intentional though (after you finished the game the first time, you get to play it again, but then with a higher level cap... but the fact that you have to play the introductionary levels again as well is a major flaw). The game is centered about the different weapons, and you can build your character around them, suiting your playstyle.

It's also possible to play 4 player coop, which is a lot of fun.

Hey Brohterland was on sale on Thursday. I want my Friday special as I don't play FPS.

I will probably get X-com UFO defense at 2,50$. (I doubt it's going to go at 75%)

BTW, since we are looking at RPG crossover, I just went though the demo of Defendrer's Quest (not on steam, unfortunately) , and I'll probably buy it (7$). It's a nice tower defense - RPG mix, and the story is somewhat nicely scripted.

lol, you dont like Maffia II or just disappointed it isn't X-com?

I got Maffia I as a prize in the Steam Xmas Holiday achievement event. Haven't gotten around to installing it though.
