Based on my limited playtime of both, I feel like Just Cause 2 is a MUCH better mayhem simulator/asshat sandbox than SR2.
JC2 It has better graphics and a bigger world and pretty much no bugs but other than that SR2 is better: It has funny writing and a fun story and good voice acting. JC2's is kinda of weak on all accounts. JC2's fighting is better but not unflawed.
Get them both.
Sequence, the RPG rhythm game hybrid is half price at £1.99. Haven't played it yet but the critical reception for it on the consoletoy was very warm and the developer seems to be working hard on ironing out the issues the PC version had early on.
Just Sanctum + DLC and Riddick for me. There was a few other things I wanted but I was unusually pretty restrained this time. I'm playing Skyrim and BF3 at the moment which is taking up what little gaming time I have so didn't see much point in buying too much else. Especially with the Xmas sale next month. Whatever I wanted now would most likely be on sale then.
I got Puzzle Dimension for $2.50 - from what I've played of it so far it seems pretty short, but the visuals are excellent and the levels are engaging.
I snagged The Witcher: Enhanced Edition for $2.50 yesterday; surprised I didn't see it mentioned here. All the Dawn of War 2 DLC is on sale, and the complete pack comes with the recently-released Tau Commander, so I picked that up too.
Anyone know if Relic has plans for more DoW2 DLC? Probably does...
I passed on Greed Corp and went for Spectromancer instead (£3.74 for game and two expansions). A fine purchase; an incredibly straightforward, cute and varied card game that looks like it will have longterm play value especially in multiplayer.
Managed to pick up EU3 Chronicles for $7.50. This should fill in the gaps of the work day quite nicely!
Orcs must die, New Vegas DLC, L.A. Noire. (was surprised to see that last one, so soon.) A tidy haul.
I got orcs must die and chtulhu saves the world pack
the good thing is that I could use TF2 metal instead of my cash.
I love that new game buying currency :)
Noone's mentioned Divinity II DKS i've noticed. I thought RPGs were popular round these parts? I tried the demo and found it a very amiable game with NPCs that are actually well voiced and most surprisingly, genuinely funny. I'm not sure how the hacky/slashy turns out having only played the opening section, but compared to Dragon Age's rather stiff, serious tone that i always found too awkward to like, this has been pleasing.
Any concrete recommendations or allegations of crapness from anyone here before I add another game to my list (that by now i think probably exceeds any free-time quota of my life expectancy as it is)?
The combat feels really quite flimsy and it doesn't really improve all that much, but it works well enough.
Divinity 2 tempted me greatly. But I'm still stuck in the forseeable future with Skyrim and actually need a break from RPGs after that. (Never thought I'd say that.)
I'm watching the Steamsales with a semi-enthusiastic half-eye, because I'm currently busy with games and I know that when I run out of my current batch of games, the Christmas-sales will begin.
Their timing is not optimal.

The demo was the first i've come across where i actually found myself paying some attention, rather than just clicking through all the text to get to the next quest/reward/number increase before losing interest. Picked it up in the end, cheers for the info.

I spent all of 2.49 Euro on Limbo and that was a gift for a friend.
Every time I saw something I might want, I started thinking that it'll probably come on sale again at a later time, so I didn't buy anything. Obviously a sensible approach, but it has also meant this sale has been very boring; no new toys (to leave sitting unplayed in my Steam library for months while I play Minecraft instead...).
