Be warned, the game is closer to the comic than it is to the TV show (which is based on the comic).

Walking Dead was flat-out my GOTY, 100%. Best story-telling I've ever seen in a game.

So how's everyone doing? It's been a pretty good sale so far and we've still got quite a while to go. How many games can Steam give us for so cheap?!

Still hoping for deep discounts on Dishonored, Far Cry 3, and ACIII. But so far I got:

Well, my list isn't as pretty as yours, Sir, but I've got:

Batman: Arkham City GOTY
Witcher 2 (again)
SimCity 4
Dungeon Defenders
Unmechanical
Ace of Spades (for name alone)
The Basement Collection
They Bleed Pixels
KOTOR 2
Deadlight
Borderlands 2

and we still have, what, a week to go? Poor wallet.

Maybe we can play Borderlands 2 together sometime!

[EDIT] Looks like Assassins Creed III went onsale for -25%, to put it at $37.49. I was hoping for -50% off to put it at $25.00....but maybe I should just get this? It's currently the daily deal, not a flash deal though....

Sure man. I'll probably be buying the Mechromancer and use her, she looks fun. Why would I play as Axton and get a turret when I can get a giant fuck off robot?

As for AC3, I doubt we'll see it at 50% off till next year, but I think it's worth the price it's currently at, though maybe there'll be some better deals for it boxed in other sales? Always worth shopping around, can always activate it on Steam once bought. I played it at work because my current PC could hardly handle it, being natively Dx11. It looks gorgeous, and is really fun. A similar step-up from AC2 that AC2 was to the first one.

That'd be sweet. I've been playing as Zero and making him a mega high offensive/low defensive character. So having a big beefy robot at my side would be very complementary.

As for AC3, I see the deluxe version for $34 often, but it's through here: http://www.direct2play.com/329-assas...-download.html

Can I link that to Steam as an official game?

I dunno how that store works. If it gives you a CD key then you should be able to activate it on Steam, I've done that with places like GameFly before. I found this article on their website though, saying how to do it:

http://www.direct2play.com/content/1...-game-in-steam

So I'll go out on a limb and say you can, because of that, but not 100%.

What level are you on Borderlands and where abouts are you? Since I'll need to play catch-up.

I'm either 19 or 29....not 100% to be sure. But I might just make a new character (Siren) to play with until our levels are similar. Or I can just overwatch you and follow you around and be OP....in case you get into a pickle.

I will forever be in a pickle since enemies scale based on our average level.

Oh and also, on Green Man Gaming XCOM is 50% off if you haven't got it, rather than the 33% of Steam's deal, and it activates on Steam too. So if you want to pick that up, is a good deal.

Thanks, but I've already put 58 hours into XCOM and beat the last boss in 1 turn (1 heavy aiming bonus, 2 sniper headshots). I was way OP. Still a great, great game. Has some serious bugs in it, but it's otherwise got amazing, replyable, gameplay.

I agree, it and Dishonored both came out around the same time and both blew me away. The snipers became OP, when they could 1-hit most things and could take tonnes of shots. Hopefully they make another one, give more options. I didn't love how everything was purely an upgrade, there was not really any 'Hmm, this one does this, but then this does this...'.
