WiseGuy has started an AVS Steam Group for us!

AVS Forum Steam Group

My intention with this thread is to have one location for people to look at to find out what interesting stuff is happening on Steam, what nifty deals are going on at the moment, and who they should get together with to play some games. It seems that every two or three weeks we have a new Steam thread pop up, so hey, why not have all that in one place?

There isn't really anything of note on sale right now, but this post is where I would like to point out interesting and awesome Steam sales. At least until someone else decides that they want to be the Steam Sale Newsposter, or thinks that they'll do a better job than I am doing. We'll see what happens Wednesday, which should be the next discount day.

My friend and I just started after the sale. We got our characters up to lvl18 and haven't even left the first zone yet. I've played through the game many times so I do not mind being a guide if anyone of you needs it. We should team up sometime.

I picked up Borderlands on sale last week and it has me hooked bad. Such a fun game! Anyways, I think my contribution this weekend will be moving our hours per person average up.

I've been playing Red Faction. No, not Guerrilla. No, not II...

And as always, I am checking out the new Team Fortress 2 content. My favorite Engineer finally got his update!

I like the Engy update too. It's almost sad that the major updates have to end - or do they? It'd be cool if they went for another round, but they've given us a lot for free already so we can't be greedy.

TF2 keeps selling and supporting the development team, so they will keep making content for it. Last I heard, going back and doing a second Medic update is next on the to-do list.

And of course, there are so many more hats that can be made!

I really got to get back into TF2 again. I got it when it first came out, played it for a few months. Then it got lost under all the other games that came out to play. Video game market is too saturated with games now. I mean its nice to have good games to play, but who has all the time to devote to them all.

Man, Wednesday has come and gone twice now without a deal. Steam seems to have blown their load with that mega-sale.

But it was quite a load

I picked up lots of stuff I've been interested in but never got around to. Uh oh, I feel a list coming on:
  • Introversion Pack (UpLink, Defcon, Darwinia, Multiwinia)
  • Bully: Scholarship Edition
  • Red Faction Guerrilla
  • Saints Row 2
  • Borderlands + Dr.Ned, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx
  • Day of Defeat: Source
  • Half-Life Episode 2
  • Bioshock 2
  • Left 4 Dead 2 (which I had already forgot I bought)
As I mentioned, I'm currently plowing through Borderlands, which I'm loving by the way. But still haven't had the chance to try it co-op.

I hope to get through all these games at some point, but if last winter's sale is any indication then that might not happen.

Anyone else care to list what they snagged?

Infrasonic and his buddy helped me with Borderlands for my first time last night. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. Maybe we can all meet online tonight or something.

And I am quite glad for that, actually. I bought way more games than I needed to so I am set for a while.

Yeah, join up with us so we can play with a full room. Should be fun! Oh, btw next time we play we will have to give up some ... ummm.... "newer" equipment now that you got all leveled up.

My friend and I are about 21-22ish so that's no big deal. We were working on Augcliffe's character last night and got him up to 11 or so.

I've played the game too many times so I can lvl quick if I wanted to so I am not worried about that. Plus, I've got some big guns. Now let's just see if we can coordinate our schedules to play together.

I'm definitely playing tonight. Will try and be on around 9:30'ish EST. Just a heads up that sometimes I go AFK to deal with the kids. Hence, playing after they go to bed.

Had a great time playing Borderlands with Jake, Scott and Daniel last night. The game pulls off co-op really well. And it was a nice change of pace from the solo gameplay. Really funny plowing through the lower level baddies. You guys dropped Sledge so quick I hadn't even made it around the corner to see him standing

Also, thanks for the awesome assault rifle. That thing is crazy!

We'll have to play again sometime. Preferably on a night I don't have to get up for work the next day.
