    Orcs Must Die is a lot of fun - WELL worth 3...

    Some levels can be a bit frustrating (unlike most TD games, the hard part is at the start of each level where you're easily overrun - once you've done a few waves the rest tends to be carnage - but FUN carnage).

    Took me a good 10 hours to clear the core campaign on the middle difficulty - there's a harder mode and there's a score challenge for each level too - and some DLC if you're still hungry after that...

    Portal 2 is $0.19 over my Steam purchase threshold, if I didn't know better I'd think they were playing with me. :) Eh, it'll wait.

    Men of War: Vietnam is tempting at that price, especially with a new version of the Dynamic Campaign generator available which is Vietnam-compatible, but I wouldn't play it right away so I think I'll stick to my "no buying stuff just because it's cheap" guns. I've cut my game spending in half on that basis and still have more stuff to play than I remotely have time for, anyway.

    My name is Vinraith, and I'm a game hoarder. I've been clean for 2 months...

    If Fallout 3 goatee falls below 10 American hundred-pence units, I will dance in a bowlful of smiles.

    Remember guys, try not to buy games until the final day because you don't know what will go on a daily sale.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    I ask you, rather than browsing to their site, because I hope for a more honest answer - Have the battles progressed much beyond units charging towards you?

    No idea, honestly, I haven't had a chance to try it in ages myself.

    Hmm -- interested in both Risen and EYE. On the other hand, I must save some ideas for Christmas...

    I chose it for a reason. :)

    If it makes you feel any better, I just ran over to Matrix and dropped $20 on the new Distant Worlds expansion, which for me really is a much better buy. I'll get worlds more gameplay out of that than I would any four $5 games I might buy in a Steam sale just because they're cheap.

    I'd be up for a Renegade Ops 4-pack if someone from the US is hosting.

    Not worth it. AFAIK DCG still doesn't do anything for AI and Vietnam is on the old engine. Use Assault Squad DCG instead.

    (Setting is sadly irrelevant; Vietnam is a couple of shoddy reskins such that it's basically impossible to differentiate from the WW2 games)

    I understand OMD is more physics based and lets you freely chain traps together, but is there any other reason at all to get this if you have Dungeon Defenders?

    This is disappointing, but important to know. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Count me in too be happy to do the buying but am UK based I am assuming the US 4 pack is $15 so is marginally cheaper than the 10 UK version

    Why doesn't Steam have any RPGs?

    UK works as well. The difference is minimal.

    Risen is an RPG, and on sale. Some would argue [not I] that Mass Effect 2 is also an RPG.
