My big dilemma is what 10 games do i I put on my wish list just in case.
I'm already up to 5 coals, and a 50% off valve coupon.
Side note : People buying the humble indie bundle for 1 penny over and over on alt accounts to "farm" coal disgusts me. (not that it will do them any good, I suppose valve has away to see who traded what what, and realizes some guy didnt just make dozens of friends willing to give him all their coal)
I got it for $2.49, as I felt it would be a crime NOT to purchase the best "platformer" I've ever played for that amount.

I played the Heist demo on PS3, pretty good but very short. There are only 6 missions for the game, with randomized objectives for each one. Gets boring pretty fast even with Co-Op, wait till it goes for $5 or less.
I've heard others speak well of the Mount & Blade series. Apparently "Warband" is the one to get.
I own it and it's fun, but.. I don't know if I missed something early on, but I have no idea what I'm intended to be doing. I just spend my time running around with an army, slaughtering bandits and other countries' soldiers. If there's a story, or an objective I should be going for, I have no idea what it is.
Limbo is supposed to be pretty good, I went ahead and picked it up. I (regretfully) already have Torchlight, which I can't enjoy very much. ME1/2 I own, and Brink was such a disappointment that I wouldn't even play it for free. Everything else I've either never heard of or have no interest in.
I have to wonder if the actual quality of these sales is going down, or if most long-time Steam users just happen to already own all the good stuff.

Great dungeon crawler. Granted, if you want a dungeon crawler now your better off waiting for D3.
It just feels so endlessly repetitive to me, like a poor man's Diablo 2. All I ever do in it, no matter which class I pick, is autoattack and occasionally use a skill if that doesn't feel fast enough. There's a bunch of different enemy types, but they basically all behave the same, so I never even notice what I'm fighting. There's just no challenge in it.
couple hours left on divinity 2: dks! pretty awesome rpg; it's got random loot and item sets where the pieces are mostly behind little puzzles and stuff, not random finds.
i decided to update skyrim before getting into a new mage character. freaking steam! started updating 6 different games (around 500mb) with a combined playtime of about 2 hours before even listing skyrim's 51mb update. my connection sucked so pausing or uninstalling through steam caused it to lag out.
