    The Steam thread

    With all the sales and the amount of people on steam. I thought it'd be worthwhile to start a thread on this. Hell it might even be better to call it a general video game chat.

    Anyways, what has everyone picked up so far at the Steam Summer Sale?

    Nuttin'.

    I actually wanna get that new Trainz sim. Looks fun and I haven't played with trains in ages! I really really hope they put it on sale. Steam and GameFly have spoiled me. I never buy games full price any more. The last thing I got was Bad Company 2 for 6 bucks.

    I couldn't resist Medal of Honor for ten bucks, I'm currently playing through the singleplayer. Given the lukewarm reviews, I think it's surprisingly good so far. definitely beats MW2's SP. I'll probably at least check out the MP to see if its as much of a rehash of BC2 as people are saying it is.

    TF2. Because it was free and I knew that one day my stubbornness to buy it would prevail.

    I haven't bought anything but I should be able to get a couple of the ticket prizes... the TDU2 car is easy enough to just buy in-game, but Alien Breed 2 is looking pretty good.

    THQ Hit Collection
    Items included:

    Company of Heroes
    Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
    Darksiders™
    Homefront
    Metro 2033
    MX vs ATV Reflex
    Red Faction Guerrilla
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
    Saints Row 2
    Titan Quest
    Titan Quest - Immortal Throne
    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Retribution
    Warhammer® 40,000™: Dawn of War® II


    All for $49.99


    I would actually play most of them, I might gift out the MX game, the Titan Quest stuff, and Saints Row 2 as I played it on XBOX. Everything else looks decent though, and I always wanted to play Homefront and Dawn of War II. Metro 2033 would be fun for the single player campaign, and too benchmark my system on.

    Oh I have BFBC2, I haven't bought the THQ pack.

    That seems a bit high for a single 6950 though, what is your resolution, and by max settings list them out. Also don't consider the max FPS, take an average. Benchmarks of that card have it pegged around 35ish min, 50ish Max fps at Max detail 1920x1080 and 4xAA and 16xAF.

    With the above settings my OC SLI 570s w/ OC i5 2500k gets around 125ish fps. But that is absolutely caning it, with the more modest overclock I normally run its around 110fps.

    I'm thinking about picking up the two Stalker sequels since I haven't played them but loved the original.

    And Beat Hazard looks pretty fun too...
