Do I need to own Burnout Paradise Ultimate after just having purchased NFS HP?  Also, I am a big Crossworlds fan - will Disciples II do anything for me (I already took a pass on III)?

It's a Massive Steam Holiday Sale
(MSHS for those of you with love for acronyms)
(Miss Hissy for those of you who love to pronounce the letters that are derived from acronyms... l-awl' indeed disgust).

Here's what you do:
  • Buy everything
  • Drown your regrets in the guilt of a giant backlog
  • Starve it with the lack of funds to afford alcohol
  • Hate CeeKay for his shop-bot shameless plugging*.

Spoiler for *:
You'd think he gets a cut, but I don't see him as being that shrewd.

I didn't notice if it's already been mentioned, but The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom is being discounted 90% and selling for an unbelievable $.49. I haven't played it, but I know it's been nominated a few times for Indie GOTY.

And no bitching by Purge - that's cheaper than the crappiest cup of coffee you can buy.  icon_twisted

Do the other packs make sense? I'd be ok with just 7.50 for spore.

Any comments on it/the addons?

Also, how does JC2 play on PC? I finished it on console but there was a ton of stuff left to do and I'd rather just rent/buy/trade for a used copy there.

AC2 still include the stupid DRM, so not worth $12. smile

All the keys can be rebinded to find a scheme you like, but I found the default controls worked really well for the demo.  You can also connect a 360 controller to make it play just like console version if you prefer.  Try the demo and see what you think!  Just remember that it requires Vista or Windows 7....

As much as I loved the art style in Darksiders, the 360 version of Just Cause 2 remains the best looking game I played all year.  The PC version is even better: higher resolution textures, more particle and physics effects, and an even greater draw distance, and the engine is optimized so well that my 3+ year old system handles it really well.  I'm planning to build an all-new PC sometime in the coming month, though, and this game will definitely be one of my benchmarks. nod

The other thing about that deal is it's not much of a deal - at least not n my neck of the woods. New copies of the console version in my city are selling for $20 and I've seen the PC version for as low as that and even lower in a few cases. It seems like Steams price was artificially high in the 1st place.

That might be a Ubisoft thing.  The boxed version of Settlers 7 has been $20 - $25 for months now, while the Steam version has stubbornly remained at $50.  Even now, in the midst of their huge end-of-year sale, it's only down to $37. icon_confused

It'll probably show up in one of the daily deals. Of course you'd have to deal with the DRM again, since it's a Ubisoft game.
