Doing some shopping on STEAM

So, probably everyone of you who plays on the PC allready has STEAM and probably some games.

If you do then you must know that the discount until January 3 is open with discounts on everything and up to 75%.
I cant speak highly enough of STEAM digital distribution, I allready bought Mass Effect for 27 USD and Deus Ex Invisible War for around 9 USD. I want to play Deus Ex IW again, even when some people say is sh** I never finished it and I thought it was fairly good. And Mass Effect, well, i sort of got an ilegal copy the first time because I live in a third world country the only way to get an original copy of a game is to purchase it in a service like STEAM.

Now, if you do not play on the PC, maybe you will find something for you if you look around, even EA is on STEAM now and they are a lot of old games (like Deus Ex), for less than 10 usd. You probably wont need a great machine to play those games, so even if your PC is five years old you will find something there for you (like Civilization).

The idea is that they are some great discounts going, and if you spend some money right now you can save a lot of it on the coming months when you will be playing. You just got to browse the STEAM store a little and see what you can find.
My sugestion is to look for something on developers like THQ.

Well, Im off to play some Mass Effect (another title I dont get why some people hate so much).

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
