    BC2 for £6.79?! I love Steam. Will probably buy Deus Ex again, just for having it run -CD.

    I took advantage of the last sale, and bought Mirror's Edge, Stalker SoC, Outrun 2006 for about £10 all in. PC retail just doesn't really compete any more, even with no second-hand. I'm not even that bothered about game boxes etc any more.

    The flipside of Steam is some outrageous prices for digital downloads, I was wanting to buy R.U.S.E. but Steam wanted £30 for it, a quick check on Amazon and its under £14, what's that about?

    Whereas Amazon have some control over the prices they charge for games, Steam actually has no control over regional pricing. The publishers agree to the sales but as you can see on the holiday sale, very few Activision games are reduced. (COD:MW being the exception but it's been reduced to the price it should be considering the age of the game). That's not Steam's fault, publishers control the pricing.

    That being said, keep an eye on daily deals. Just Cause 2 is only £5 today, there is a good chance RUSE will appear at some point during the holiday period.

    Couldn't see Far Cry on offer, only Far Cry 2. I am running Far Cry 2 here on Windows 7 64bit with no problems at all. I don't know if the Steam download is different in any way.

    Just bought Just Cause 2, but I think I may wait to see if Far Cry 2: Fortune's Edition gets any cheaper.

    Assassinís Creed II should be a lot cheaper considering the crazy DRM it has. The most I would pay for this game is 10p.

    Get the Fortune's Edition just for the silent shotgun. It's brilliant.

    It's well worth £7.49, I put so much time into that game when it came out.
