What's the PC gaming line-up looking like for the upcoming holiday season, anything worth my hard earned cash?

All I know is that Steam has the best Christmas sale towards the end of the year. I usually keep $50-$100 just to catch up on games I may have missed during the year. I think last year I spent right under $50 and got 10-11 games. Steam FTW.

Not sure about this holiday season. But this next Tuesday Civ 5 comes out, and a week after that is Dead Rising 2. Definitely plan on picking up both of those.

BFBC2 Vietnam Expansion comes in fall. Close enough I suppose.

But what Six said - Valve has amazing Xmas deals.

Ah, got it. MP sounds cool. I rarely play single player games anymore.

The PC version got delayed btw. Q1 2011.
Fine by me. I haven't played the previous two so I need some time to catch up. :lol:

Sounds like more than enough games for me. I'm sure a lot of my time will shift from PC to PS3 once GT5 hits in Nov.

I might have a paypal account by the time the steam deals arrive. :D Then I can buy them. :)

Question, which is better, L4D or L4D2?

I enjoyed L4D1 more, some of the boss zombies if L4D2 just got annoying and I like the environemnts better in part 1... plus it just felt darker and grittier...

Castlevania next month! Woot!

everything I saw before I saw the developer demos was amazing but now after watching developer game play, it looks like a poorly executed god of war rip off... Like they tried to take every element from god of war and rather than blatantly copy it, change it up a little and their changes made things worse.

I still may borrow it for a week (brother has game fly) and check it out but I'm preparing myself for a bad god of war rip off and zero punctuation's fairly similar conclusion.

Of course I'd love to be pleasantly surprised though.

Haven't heard of this before now but I have played the LA and NY ones on xbox. Will do some research on this now but True Crimes: NY was fun, despite the terrible driving physics.
