Someone in the article comments thread pointed out that the DRM for Risen on steam only has 3 machine activations that don't regenerate. Not sure if that's true but if it is, ew.
HA! Good one, you.The Witcher 2 levels of polish
Thanks for all the replies guys, probably have to try the demo out first then. Although that particular DRM sounds... avoidable.
Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.
Experiance with Steam sales has shown that the Unreal pack only goes on offer at half price and never a daily. Since it was £5 ish it was worth a shot.
Forgot how good the original UT was.
Is there still space on Renegade Ops 4-pack deals? If not are there 2 people wanting it as me and friend have a pair of spare places.
Well, I picked up the bits of the Oddboxx I didn't have (because that was cheaper than buying the bundle itself).
I also picked up AvP 2000 for 74p because apparently £2.99 wasn't cheap enough. I'm spoiled.

I got Children of the Nile, Syberia I&II, Thy Kingdom Come, and Disciples II Gold. I'm done!
There's a few I want... I would hold off until the Christmas Sale, but chances are I'll be in Russia with terrible internet when that sale drops. Hmmmmmmmm, what to do what to do.
weekendwarrio.rs - We've got more games than time...
Risen is OK, but if you haven't played Gothic 1 and 2 yet I'd just get them instead. Risen is basically the exact same as those (right down to monster models in some cases), only it's a smaller world and less interesting than Gothic's prison setting (it does have better graphics and combat than the Gothics, though, so there's that).
Plus, I could be wrong but I think Risen has been cheaper before on steam. Hasn't it been at least 10 dollars in the past? 15 dollars doesn't seem like much of a deal to me. Especially during a sale when you can get like 2-4 awesome games for that price.

Guys just stick to buying what you'll play before the next sale... Go crazy at Christmas if you must.
I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way
ARPS unofficial motto - And then we leave. No heroic stands.
Time is running out for the first day of sales, so if anyone is interested in getting into a 4-pack of Renegade Ops with me, send me a PM. I'll probably be picking one up for $15 before the deal ends.
EDIT: Pack acquired, one copy still up for grabs.

Renegade Ops is fantastic. Absolutely bloody fantastic and a steal at the 4-pack price. Been caning the co-op for a good few hours now. Triggers so much nostalgic arcade joy, with the bouncy handling feeling almost exactly like Ironman Super Off Road, with the level of glorious, gleeful and gorgeous destruction reminding me of classic shoot'emups like Metal Slug and SWIV. I may buy another 4 just so I have plenty of people to keep playing it with :)
