I fear that may be the bad Android port of Colin Mcrae: http://store.steampowered.com/app/287340/

I reckon it's $15 or bust for that bundle. Which is still a great deal.

I've already got most of those games in that bundle so I'm gonna wait until more games are announced. The 25% off DiRT Rally coupon would be nice though.

if someone somehow missed out on getting fallout 3 & NV years ago in steam sales, and the earlier ones when they were free on GOG, you can get them here: https://www.bundlestars.com/en/bundle/fallout-bundle


also quake bundle I guess https://www.bundlestars.com/en/bundle/quake-bundle

Bought DIRT Rally. Codemasters and early access... gru wat r u doin.

But it's pretty great, and as hardcore as people are saying. Do not buy if you don't have a wheel. I couldn't even get a handle on it with the Steam controller, like I could with GTR2.

I'm slowly catching up with the rest of the gaming population. Picked up the Bioshock bundle for 10 quid or what ever.

Now ... should I start with One and step through them ... or start with the latest and regress?

Play in order. The game mechanics were improved in the sequels & you really won't want to play #1 if you've played the other two first.
Not saying #1 is bad, just #2 is much improved. Like having to use a fork & a spoon after you've had the pleasure of a spork.

Starting to love it with the steam controller now. When the game sees a controller it sets all the deadzones etc to sloth on heroin, but thankfully it has fantastic advanced settings for everything. I tweaked everything to super aggressive and it's brilliant. In forgiving modes like rallycross and hillclimb anyway... regular rally stages are suicide.

Giants: Citizen Kabuto is free for a very short time on gog
http://www.gog.com/

Scroll down almost to the bottom of the main page. There's a banner to claim it.
If you've never played this game, you need to. It was pretty funny & a bit different to your usual 3rd person shooty things.

Agree, except for the original worms which was pretty fun. They've been subsequently getting shitter with every release.

We used to play worms heaps as kids. Invariably someone's computer would completely fuck up while at a LAN party so we had to pass the time whilst rebuilding.

Much more fun than scorched earth.

Nah scorch was the best. Actually SE2 was the best. Worms was fun but in a different way, and every release since has made it worse.

Grabbed Spintires (Steam key) from here for 7USD: https://www.indiegala.com/store/prod...intires/263280

You get a couple of shitty bonus games thrown in too (which you can gift or something).

i think that's decent out of 398 games, and probably a lot more since there would be a heap i played before steam cared if i had played them or not.

[ed] jeebus arma2 dayz still dominates my most played - 356 hours. I bet Gru's is like triple that

I think the guy says his scraper isn't 100% accurate either, depending on various fuckeries at Steam's end.

Good guess - it's a touch over 1200. Probably another few hundred uncounted too, from playing outside Steam.

58% Games not played. I was expecting worst. Actually it may be a bit worst - I have a tendency to install games and not touch them (currently have 189 games installed).

An overview of Steam Sales for 2015:

https://medium.com/steam-spy/steam-s...f5a#.9tve3p1ta

Quote:

The 2015 was the best year for Steam yet.

It brought over 3000 new games (compared to 1900 in 2014), increased the number of concurrent users on Steam from 8M to 12M and helped over 350 million paid games find new owners.
