I promissed I won't spend more than 20€ for every Steam sale. So here's my purchase list for Thanksgiving: - Dungeons of Dredmor: Conquest of the Wizardlands DLC -Hack, Slash, Loot -X-COM: Complete Pack -Plants vs. Zombies GOTY Edition -Swords and Soldiers + Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC And last but no means least... Indie Game: The Movie.
I bought Portal 2, The Witcher 2 and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising today on Steam. Picked up Sleeping Dogs at GMG last night for way less than the Steam autumn sale ($13). I plan on spending more during the daily flash sales.
Unfortunately, I go back to my long workweeks on Monday so won't be able to play most of what I buy.
I'm thinking about buying Alan Wake. But I already owned Alan Wake's American Nightmare on GOG.com DRM free and I prefer to buy Alan Wake also DRM free... but it's so expensive on gog.com and I don't know if it becomes cheaper on GOG.com
The core game is quite different from the arcade-like american nightmare. I found it to be an enjoyable story, albeit not a must-play. It seems like it is a games for windows anyway (sorry, too tired to research). Anyway, I played on xbox and enjoyed. But, if you choose not to buy to get away from DRM then I applaud you! All forms of DRM are evil, although I embrace Steam and Desura... I have learned to live with the evil.
I use Steam and Desura too. On Desura it's often possible to download the games without the client. That's great. I hope in future there will be more games DRM free like on GOG.com because it's easy to backup your games and you don't are an "subscriber" like on Steam. Who knows what will happen if Steam shutdown their server? Are my games lost? Is there a way to play them without Steam? Actually not...
