Apologies for the double post but I caved and got Solium Infernum. If any one of you sniveling excuses for a demon overlord wishes to challenge my might send me a PM.

According to RPS, there's a chance for a friendly sale of Solium Infernum. Along the lines of "y keys for the price of x", with y > x. I'd be waiting for that.

Well if you missed it Vic Davis posted on RPS with a $5 discount code it's BNEO000B9 and valid for a week. Not the amazing package sale rumored but better than nothing.

Although not recent games, I completed Samorost 2 and Machinarium today. Both beautiful and great games. Samorost 2, while quite short, was a bit frustrating at times due to making use of so many time critical puzzles but Machinarium is definitely Amanita Design's best game so far. I loved the style of artwork. Managing to convey ideas without dialogue, especially in its in-built walkthrough, was a very nice touch.

Is there any way that you european guys can set your default purchase currency on Steam to USD? Even after exchange rate costs, you could save quite a bit...

Nope, not possible as it checks your IP address against your bank's location, which was a pain when I was living in Swizterland. I had to remote connect to my sister's computer in England in order to be able to buy games on Steam with my English bank account.

Already have it, and don't regret buying it before the discount. :)
That reminds me, have to finish the last few levels again.

How dreadfully interesting. D2D has Red Faction Guerilla on sale for 5$/9£/12.50€, but you can always get it for 5$ as long as you say your region is US.

Wow, it must not be selling well at all. That didn't come out that long ago.

It was about 6 months ago. I don't imagine most reasonably big titles like that continue to have high sales past their first few months, so a sale like this is probably raking in a lot more money for them that it has been recently.

Also - loving Mass Effect 2 so far!

Finished Mass Effect 2 last night. It's hard to express quite how awesome a game it is.
