amok: Hmm... Borderlands 2 GotY edition. Tempting.
Still doesn't have all the DLCs, so you might be better off waiting for a Go2Y. That would be a pretty bad pun, except Gearbox might actually use it :P

Well, ignoring all the multiplayer skins - what else is missing? (I do not play MP at all, so all MP content has 0 value to me)

Profanity: While we can argue about how intelligent/stupid the story, it's an incredibly mediocre shooter.
No it wasn't. Like I said I found the shooting (surely the most important part of a shooter) to be enormous fun. Loved
every aspect of the story and design. Enjoyed using different combinations of vigours and weapons. The scripted section impressive and not over used. The voice acting was impeccable and the locations varied and memorable. And the fun of looting and upgrading was comparable to Torchlight.

I don't know if your a Doom/Duke Nukem guy who thinks Shooter went downhill the second they stopped being about hunting for pointless keys in every level, or a COD guy who considers regenerating heath realistic. But I've played over 40 FPS games so far I Bioshock infinite didn't feel generic to me at all.

You don't have to like it but you should respect that I enjoy infinite hugely (I played it four times). So what is mediocre to you isn't necessarily objectively mediocre and definatly not to me.
Just to let you all know:

Civ V Gold + Brave New World (So that includes Gods+Kings, and pretty much every bit of DLC yet)
$19.99 On Amazon, Redeem on Steam

Bioshock + Bioshock 2 + Bioshock Infinite
$14.99 on Amazon, Redeem on Steam

I'm not sure if the prices translate well to Euros or not, but just thought I'd share the info.

Ah, my bad. I always forget that they aren't as international friendly as GOG or Steam.

muun: I picked up Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite @ $9.99 each. I've started Bioshock, and it seems just awesome. I bought several other titles, some as cheap as $2.49, and managed to finish filling up my HDD

Ki11s0n3: I still need to play Bioshock 2 and Infinite, I own 2 so I may start that but I remember playing through Bioshock 1 many times and loving it and wanting to go back and play more. So I did, about a hundred times lol
Just a heads up on Infinite. Can't save games whenever you want .. it's checkpointed. The game will save whenever it wants, which i hear is not often; and far as I know, you won't even know when it saves if you have a fast PC. Deal breaker for me.
I see Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is $9.99, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent is only $3.99. Can anyone comment on those? I love survival horror so they look like right up my alley.

Well It depends on your opinion on what makes a good horror game. The Dark Desent's gimic is that not only can you not fight in any way you can't even look at the monsters with out risking loosing sanity (This game has a sanity meter. But I think all that happens if it gets too low is you loose control of your character briefly). Even standing in darkness drains your sanity.
You'll either embrace these restrictions or loath them and wish you were playing Resident Evil. The story is very good but does little for the game's scare factor. That all comes from the gameplay.
I'm not the biggest fan but it's a very solid horror experience.

I didn't play A Machine fore Pigs but the impression I got was they tried to make something more story and atmosphere driven and upset a lot of fan's for ignoring the gameplay, though some people felt it stood out for it's own merits. If your on fence I say go for The Dark Descent if only because it's cheaper and has more fans.

Why not try out the demo and see it you like it?

Killigangog: Steam seems to promote only the well-known games with additional deals. Do you expect more obsucre games like Aarklash Legacy or Universe at War to make it to the frontpage?
Steam has put old things onto daily deal or flash deals - however Universe at War is very old by now.

Still like any Steam sale best wait till the last day to make sure and then anything on sale that hasn't had a daily or flash isn't going to get one.
Wasn't expecting the 50% off on Borderlands 2 GOTY so soon after the release. Well at least I finally got all the dlc's for it until the next headhunter pack comes along.

Incidentally I played it for a bit tonight, only the beginning, but so far I'm mostly scared of the game getting frustrating, not scary. I noticed you can't save your game manually unless you quit, and it's only one slot per player. Can you even die? Physically or just from losing sanity? And what will happen if you do, are there checkpoints, and what progress will you lose? Or is it part of the horror that I'm not supposed to know? ;)

Haven't tried the demo mainly because of time. Holidays and what not, but for $3.99 its kinda hard to ignore. It would have to be pretty bad to not be worth $3.99.
I loved Outlast, and that had zero combat, just run for your life!
