Steam Winter Sale 2012 - Seriously Guys, It Was Over Two Months Ago! Move Along!

While I'm thinking about it... Any thoughts on Arkham City played via keyboard mouse? Is it even feasible? I loved Arkham Asylum on my 360 but I figure with the fighting a controller is a must have.

I played both of them on keyboard/mouse and thought it was just fine. To me, you can get used to either pretty easily by just playing with them. They have a good tutorial for learning the game. I keep meaning to go back and start over with the XBox controller to get the hang of that and play some with it, but haven't yet.

Thanks to MrAndrewJ for the ratrolling! Those are some bad, bad rats... and they're apparently all about revenge.

Urgh, just realize, Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion didn't make it in the "Encore" sales..

Anno is there tho.

Now, question for the masses.

Sims3 Showtime, or Anno 2070?

I want a simulation of some sort

I got doubled ratted!!!!!

Thanks jillsammich. I sent Monkey's back so he can lay the rat smack down yet another time.

Arkham City has fantastic (360) controller support on PC, IMHO. If you already have a wireless 360 controller, you can get a wireless adapter for PC, or just get a cheap wired 360 controller and plug that in. Batman:AC's UI control prompts all change to 360 control scheme automagically. As far as feasibly playing AC with a mouse and keyboard? Sure, you can do it, but personally I'm of a mind that if a game was made to be played a certain way, I try to play it that way when I possibly can.

Edit to add: As far as Steam's controller support, with Big Picture, it's fantastic now (at least, it is compared to when there was none ). I plan on building a gaming PC for the living room this year so I can play all my console ports and controller-focused indie games from the couch. I feel like Master Newell read my mind.

EDIT: Grammar corrections.

Arma II now 50% off, was 40% off during most of the sale. If Day Z didn't have a standalone in development, I would jump.

Also, funny error over at isthereanydeal deal. They just emailed me saying all my wishlist items on steam are available for $0.00.

Has anyone got a spare Magicka key lying around?
It's not on sale anymore and I'm sure some people were buying in bulk.
I'd give something in return on next occasion or pay back, or accept, just need it rather quick. : )

Okay, the clock's ticking on the Steam Winter Spend-fest and I have $2.53 left in my virtual wallet. Since it would just be wrong to leave it in there, what's the best thing to get for before the sale ends?

Keep in mind, I've probably got most of the obvious ones, what's good that's less well known?

If you enjoy music games, I really, really recommend Chime. It's marked at 3€99, must've been cheaper during the sale, but it's still a steal at that price. A friend once described it as "Tetris for people with OCD". I just love the music, and the gameplay is fun enough (placing blocks next to each other to form bigger blocks).

About Torchlight 2, I loved the first one, and thought the second was more of the same with lots of improvements. And that's a good thing, Torchlight 2 was supplanted the first installment in my book. I'd say go for it, 5$ is a steal, even if you don't get around to play it for a few weeks.

Not sure about doing a final tally, at lunch, hubby said "hey, you really went overboard with Steam there" I answered "I know", he said "alright then". Heh, I love that man. I'm done, though, done and out. Bracing myself, here goes for the final "husband approved" tally.

Bought for myself: Dark Souls (from Amazon), XCOM: Enemy Unknown (from Amazon), Fable: The Lost Chapters (on Steam).
Got for Steam gifts: some Tropico 4 DLC, Auditorium, Orcs Must Die!2 (twice, Sean Sands would be proud!), Torchlight 2 (twice, because it's awesome), Qube, Quantum Conundrum, Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword, Terraria, Tropico 4, FTL (thrice, it's just that good), Magic 2012, Peggle Deluxe, Secret of the Magic Crystals (twice, yes, I'm cruel), Confrontation (twice), Giana Sisters, Audiosurf, The Witcher 2 (twice, because it's awesome), Dead Pixels, Waking Mars, To the Moon, Magicka, Botanicula, Civ 5: Gods & Kings, Bad Rats (twice, but not sure it should count as a gift ).
Received as Steam gifts: the Humble Bundle (technically not through Steam), Botanicula, Eufloria, Super Meat Boy, Alice: Madness Returns, Commander Keen Pack, Flight Control, To the Moon, Peggle Deluxe, Secret of the Magic Crystals, Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword, Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble, Psychonauts, the Thief Collection, Miasmata, Heroes of Might & Magic 5, I Am Alive, From Dust, Frozen Synapse, Bad Rats.

Now that the Steam sale is winding down with its last encore, I'd just like to take a few seconds to think you guys for being so awesome. You have absolutely made my holidays, and have proven that this is one of the greatest communities out there. The "warm and fuzzy" feeling simply cannot be overstated. Particular thanks go to JillSammich, MadDoc, DocJoe, Rallick, MaverickZY, Manach, Peedmyself, Superjars, Cobble, D_man, Merphle, MadDoc, MadDoc, Cragmyre, Ahrezmendi, Grumpicus, Jarpy and M0nk3yboy who saw fit to bestow their incredible generosity upon me. But a big fat internet hug to all you incredible people.

And now I'll just mosey on out of here before I start getting all misty-eyed.

Oh wait. Too late.

Edit, little addendum:

While I'm thinking about it... Any thoughts on Arkham City played via keyboard mouse? Is it even feasible? I loved Arkham Asylum on my 360 but I figure with the fighting a controller is a must have.

Yes absolutely playable, but then again, I use keyboard and mouse for everything and am a very, very recent controller convert (only played 5 mins of Bastion with my shiny new XBox controller). Worst case scenario, you can always plug in your controller into your PC, if I'm not mistaken, I believe Steam advertises at least partial controller support.

I'd say give them at least a week or two before re-gifting it. Sometimes people are on vacation or on business trips. Maybe they haven't had the opportunity to accept and thank you for the gift? Seems incredible in this day and age, but sometimes, we really are away from our computers and interwebs!

I have one for the base game only (no DLC) if that works. Just sent you a friend request on Steam.

Seriously, I will pay you back for this. Just send your Paypal email. Either that or I will swear a triad blood oath to repay the debt.

"When I'm a Triad, the cops want to kill me and when I'm a cop, everyone wants to kill me! I'm a scared man."

I have simple needs. All I ask is the part of the game where I run through a hospital, holding a baby, dodging random explosions.

Steam should integrate something that allows users to select their hardware components so that users can more easily see what will run on their own (and their friends') machines. I could see it possible with a check box or drop down box selection system.

I wonder if they will ever make a sequel to Bad Rats. It should cost about .50

I wonder if they will ever make a sequel to Bad Rats. It should cost about .50

This should get you by until a real sequel is released.

Well, let's see how I did. I tried to limit myself to what was in my Steam wallet, but I had to go outside if it once. Plus I made one purchase from Amazon, so...

Bought for myself -
F.E.A.R. 3
Prototype
Miasmata
THQ Pack (From Amazon - Contains S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - SOC, Homefront, Red Faction: Guerrilla, Red Faction: Armageddon, Space Marine, Metro 2033; I actually had half those but $7.49 was too good to pass up for the other half)

Bought for others -
Unmechanical
Limbo
Mark of the Ninja x2
Home
Hotline Miami
Prototype
Deux Ex: Human Revolution

And thanks to Grumpicus, Hobbes, Kommisar and Bennard for
Rage
The Walking Dead
Civ V
Saints Row 3

So... How long until the Summer sale?

If you buy a publisher pack, like the THQ pack, do you get extra copies of the games you already own to gift?

No. You will receive a message at checkout explaining:

"Note: You already own the following items in "Collection". You will not receive extra copies of these items when you complete this purchase"

Therefore, if you like Steam sales, never buy individual games from publishers.

So the final tally is:

Thanks to m0nk3yboy for Bad Rats, the entire Thief Collection, and Civ 4 Complete! Also thanks to SillyRabbit for Thief: Deadly Shadows and MrAndrewJ for Bad Rats. I'll make sure they find good homes.

Sad that I don't get the Dozing Pooches. I would have nabbed it at that price. Curse you, fickle mistakes!
