I'd been itching for a good RPG lately, so I thought I would see what was happening on Steam. I loaded it up, and then remembered I had The Witcher, and I'd never made it past the 1st town (because so many games).
Played it for a few hours and had a great time, closed it down and looked at steam again and saw The Witcher 2 was for sale, 75% off!. I loaded $10 on my Steam Wallet and bought it for 4.99 (from 19.99 - Originally 49.99).
With the extra $5 I had in the wallet, I thought what the hell, I will buy a few badges and see what this is all about. I saw that I had 4 out of 8 badges for Civ5 and bought the rest for about $0.12 each. Crafted the badge and a cool little animation showed up, and 3 new things appeared in my inventory. Two of them were just junk, backgrounds or emoticons, but the third thing was a Coupon for 90% off Portal 2!!
I checked out the price of Portal 2, and it was $19.99, so I am going to buy it too. The coupon is good for a few weeks, and I can get Portal 2 for $1.99 (from $19.99 - Originally $49.99).
How awesome is that! Two really awesome games for less than $10.
Those badges really aren't so bad at all.
Witcher 2 - $4.99
Purchased badges - $0.48
(Unlocked through badge crafting) Portal 2 - $1.99
Remaining Cash - $2.54
Lots of fun to be had on Steam.
