OT though I'll be waiting to buy Crysis 2 later. I need to see some pc gameplay first.

Yep, that is a bit annoying, having all those CD Keys pop up and one of the games I own on Steam even requires Games for Windows to launch and log me in! It's ridiculous. These half-baked steam versions are a bit annoying. If it's on Steam, then the version we bought should only come with Steam features; these games won't work outside of Steam anyway and furthermore all those programs consume precious RAM.

That is very debatable. I've played both crysis games and really didn't find anything new other than the addition of a suit and pretty graphics over Far Cry. Games I really look forward to that are worth my money are Duke Nukem, ME3, and Portal 2.

Games are 50€ in retail stores too so I don't think Steam could have any problem, a few years ago everyone in the world payed the same amount in dollars and it was converted in your currency at the end of the checkout process, but they launched regional stores back in 2008 if I remember correctly and now we basically pay the same amount of Euros that the game is priced in the US (so $50=50€). Sometimes it's even worse, Bad Company 2 is still 40€ here ($54), only 10€ less than at launch. When I buy a newly released game I usually import it from play.com, it's a lot cheaper for me but I've got my packages intercepted by customs quite a few times and had to pay a fee.

Well, at least Bad Company has a lower price. Check out Modern Warfare 2. It's still at that preposterous price of €59,99... for a game released in November of 2009... who is buying that thing ? From what I read from the user reviews, it sucks. I wouldn't buy it at that price, no way!

I actually bought BC2 and it was a good game, worth the asking price (€ 39,99, but I bought it on the Christmas sale for much less - something Modern Warfare never was on).

I seen this and thought no way in hell am I paying $60 for this game, I'll wait till the summer and get during steams summer sale. Thats usually what I do anyways, buy a couple games every big sale period to hold me over till the next one. I still got Dead space, Stalker series, GTAIV, Super Meat Boy, Magika, Amnesia, L4D2 and looking at my account about 5 more that I have to beat.

Damn you steam and your good deals!

At least I didnt pay full price for a single game, I guess that kinda offsets the price of hardware, alittle.

Ugh 60 bucks how lame. Looks like I'll be playing Shogun 2 Total War for a long time till they drop the prices on Crysis 2 and Dragon age 2.
What's going on.

Yep, Steam has wonderful deals; I got lots of games on the Christmas sale, including Bad Company 2. But I doubt Crysis 2, being such a high profile game, will be on the summer sale; it's too soon. Maybe on the Christmas sale.

Oh, and from your list, I also bought Dead Space on the Christmas Sale. Horrible control system; I played it for half an hour and of those 30 minutes, I spent 10 trying to get the mouse to work properly. If I let it as it was, I couldn't configure the game as it just flew. If I slowed it down to normal levels, the movement in-game would be too slow. And then you have to factor in that it's a third person shooter, but it's not like GTA IV; it's much worse and cumbersome in the way you move your character around, frustratingly really.

It may actually be a good game, but you simply can't control it effectively.


As to Crysis 2... hummm, I'll wait for the Demo to decide whether I pre-purchase it or not.
