    I guess you missed that during the Thanksgiving sale. I wouldn't count on them doing that again.

    I'm saving my money for Lego Star Wars, Ceville, Runaway 2, and maybe one of the Indie packs on the last day.

    Well, Team Fortress 2 is $5 today, so I got that and Half-Life 2 (also $5) and made my own Orange Box bundle (I already had Portal, and I figure I can get the chapter packs if/when I beat the main game).

    It takes guts to spotlight a sale on Bionic Commando, Valve. Just saying.

    Just got TF2 but my 4 1/2 year old iMac can barely run it. Ugh.

    Guess what? I've been waiting for them to lower the price on that goddamn thing since the summer sale. I got Rearmed as a gift but wouldn't buy the two pack because it was more expensive.

    So now? Now I own Bionic Commando.

    Hot dog!

    I also bought a KenKen puzzle game called "Everyday Genius: SquareLogic", and HL2 Episodes 1+2 as a gift for a friend who's probably still asleep from New Year's. :P

    Did you already try playing with the rendering settings? The Source engine seems to be pretty flexible in that regard, at least on Windows.

    Yeah, no offense, but a 4 1/2 year old iMac has a really crappy video card. Very outdated.

    Try lowering the resolution and the shader / model quality.

    I got the half-life 1 collection. Not bad for 3.74

    Tell me something I don't know. Even when I bought it new, I thought 128mb was ridiculously low for a new video card. TF2 system requirements said I should be able to handle it though.

    Video settings are already as low as they'll go too. Getting a new Mac soon anyway, so I'll just wait until then to play.

    Hey, my PC has an integrated 128mb card (I know, yikes) and TF2 runs about 55-60fps at almost the max settings. It's dual-core processor clocks in at 2.93ghz, so that probably compensates somewhat.

    Yeah, my Mac is just a 2.16ghz dual core, so that's going to slow it down.

    I actually tweaked the settings a bit more and it's a bit easier to play now. Render settings are grayed-out though. Kinda choppy but definitely playable at least. I need to upgrade to a new setup soon.

    My TF2 buddies have said that a good CPU can be just as helpful as a good video card when it comes to TF2, so... I'm playing the game with a GeForce 8400 GS, which is kinda crappy, and I sometimes get awesome frame loss (2 FPS!). I think it also has to do with the drivers you're using... dunno if there's newer ones out there, man.

    Not much for the last day of the sale. Plants vs Zombies is a decent price I guess.

    I got Evil Genius and that Judge Dredd game - both for $2.50ish.

    I wanted to buy Blade Kitten... but since the dev pretty much folded there's little chance of the second half of the game being released.

    Blade Kitten has been getting some pretty rubbish reviews.

    It's good fun, and you're unlikely to see it at that price again.

    Time to resurrect this thread! As of right now you can pick up:

    Far Cry 2 - $4.99 or get both games for $7.48!
    Sims 3 - $13.60 (the add-ons are all on sale, too)
    Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY - $7.49


    There are many more titles on sale, but these are the ones I gave a shat about. There's about 5 hours left before the next sale begins, so get on it!

    The deals are great - I think the sale continues to July 10th.

    The other day I picked up a bunch of stuff dirt cheap. I got Monday Night Combat for like 3 bucks - great game!

    Hey, are there three other people who would be interested in splitting up a 4-pack of Greed Corp today?
