You need to use a paypal account matching the country. It's Valve's legal way of purchasing when abroad, but just not publicized. And you can add and play the games without limitation.

I'm tempted to try dishonored, any thoughts, will it go cheaper than 66% off?

If you are not willing to spend $10 on Dishonored, you really don't deserve to play it anyway.- If the sound of Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings" makes you think of Kharak burning instead of the Vietnamese jungle, most of your youth happened during the 90s. -

As for the game, I really enjoyed it; it felt like a cross between Thief and Half Life 2. You should know whether you like this sort of game - chances are if you enjoy games like Deus Ex or Thief then you should like Dishonored.
I've heard people complain that it's too easy or short - most likely they went the ultraviolent route. Crank up the difficulty, play it stealthily and it's superb.

Mirror's Edge can do with some criticising, but the reasons given surprised me. I played the game for the first time a couple months ago. I enjoyed it, but it's not without a few frustrations.
The city and all of the levels are annoyingly empty of people and life save for the occasional train to splatter you and the police that spawn to shoot at you.
Speaking of shooting: it sucks. It's horrible. This isn't a shoot-em-up game, it's mechanics for it are abysmal, so why in the name of Xenu do they make you have to do it? This is the biggest bone of contention I had with the game. While the shooty bits cropped up far too often, they were generally pretty short. Except for the snipers, that was just shit.
I didn't have a problem with the timing and jumping about playing with KB+M, and I'm a terrible platformer. As in proper terrible. I never played them growing up so I didn't develop the twitchy responses needed.
It's not without it's flaws, but I did enjoy playing it. And at this price, I'd recommend it to anyone.

Yeah, the shooting does suck but that's pretty well-documented, and it is weird how Faith only seems to go running around on Sundays when no-one's at work in their big fancy skyscrapers. As for the bits on ground level, I always just pretended it was really early in the morning. Like really early.
I too suck at timing in platformers (and I did play them growing up; Sonic The Hedgehog was my jam until the Playstation came out) but Mirror's Edge made me feel like a professional most of the time. I have a weird relationship with ME, though, I go months upon months without touching it then I pick it up, play it a lot for a couple of days, then retire it again. I don't know why because I do really like it.

Mirrors Edge left me cold - the reason being that I like investigating stuff and completing everything and it makes that a chore...
If you're willing to skim the game and just pull-out the bits you like, there's fun to be had for sure - but I maintain the idea of a first-person platformer is bloody stupid in the same way a first-person RTS would be.

i wonder if wargame airland battle worth buying? by that i mean would a complete noob have a chance in multiplayer (which seems where most of the appeal is, in this game), without investing tons of hours learning all the hundreds of units etc.

I've heard good things about the original F.E.A.R. game, any thoughts on how it holds up?

It combines both genres.
Haven't played the sequels so can't comment on them.

Although I hear that Fthreear is barrels of fun in co-op.
The flash sale for the FEAR games is over already but you can still get the FEAR collection at the same 75% discount for the next 27 hours, it seems.

Long quote-a-thon incoming. Apologies.
Depending on how much you care for the lore of 40K/DOW series, I'd actually be pretty confident in saying get the complete DOW2 collection, played through the story in order, then enjoy The Last Stand which might take quite a bit of your time. When I first got this PC, I paid at retail £45 for the box-set of DOW2, CR and the recently released Retribution. I put 24 hours into DOW2/CR and 86 into Retribution, so I feel I've got my money's worth and I've played maybe 2 hours of competitive MP in Retribution.
I found it fun throughout, with some genuinely fantastic levels that really showed off the scale and ridiculousness of WH40K.
Curiously, I remember reading somewhere the justification for why the shooting sucks; Faith isn't trained to fire a gun! Brilliant!...except that doesn't necessarily make for fun. It's why I'm not altogether unhappy about Mirror's Edge 2's trailer showing off melee combat (although a gun is present for a split second, although that might've just been a disarm) because I felt that worked and at least made a little more sense. I don't want it to burden down that game, but still.
And has been said, there's only one time you're required to fire a gun and that's during what is essentially a cut-scene. You can - and I highly recommend should - play the game without firing a gun because running away in this game is so damn satisfying. It's like The Matrix, except you're playing it.
