    I tried to set myself a slightly more realistic (by my standards) target of not buying any more games until Steam do their inevitable Easter sale. Although the one concession I am making is to allow myself to buy any Humble bundles that come out before then :laugh:

    It's getting scary the amount of games I have that I've only dipped into or haven't even played and my Xmas sales haul only made things worse!:

    - Singularity
    - Duke Nukem Forever
    - Blur
    - Train Sim 2012 Deluxe w/ Horse Shoe Curve (bloomin' cheap trojan horse that resulted in lots of more expensive DLC being bought too)
    - TS2012 Edinburgh-Glasgow route
    - TS2012 West Coast Mainline North route
    - TS2012 Class 390 EMU add-on (waste of cash)
    - TS2012 Class 325 Express Mail add-on
    - Hard Reset
    - Jamestown Gunpowder DLC
    - Tropico 4
    - NBA 2K12
    - Rock of Ages
    - Serious Sam 3
    - Deus EX HR
    - BIT.TRIP.BEAT
    - The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom
    - Dark Void Zero
    - F.E.A.R. 3
    - L.A. Noire Complete Edition

    (bought from a mixture of Steam, Amazon.com, GMG & Getgamesgo)

    Also bought Minecraft but that was full price.

    I've been very restrained.

    Bulletstorm from Origin
    Deus Ex Human Revolution from Greenmangaming
    Quake 4 from Steam

    That's it besides a couple of indie games that my lad wanted.

    I bought mine from Amazon (£6.66 it worked out at).

    I had to make up a US billing address (not ideal) to be able to buy it but after that no probs downloading or playing it :smashin:

    Midweek deals normally go up on the Tuesday, not the Monday. There should be a daily though.

    Requires an Ubisoft account *yay*

    and not on the list:
    https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7480-WUSF-3601

    So I'm guessing not :(

    Though it is a game that seems to appear in indie humble bundle type deals in the past I believe.
