So, Mozgus it seems as if you have power over Steam. Hook a brother up and get them to have a great deal on all the LucasArts SCUMM games they just released.

Well the great deal on those is to just download them from wherever and run them in a SCUMM emulator yourself. :?

See this is what digital distribution does to us... I own the original Fate of Atlantis, Day of the Tentacle, and Sam & Max cds... but would pay to download them... crap!

Wow! The weekend deal this week is freakin' awesome if you like indie games/art games:

For a simple $30 bucks you get:

Braid
Audiosurf
Crayon Physics Deluxe
The Path
World of Goo
Blueberry Garden
Darwinia
Gish
Mr. Robot
Everyday Shooter

Too bad I own half of those games already. I'm debating getting this for the half I don't own though.

I played all of those besides The Path, and honestly, I only enjoyed Everyday Shooter. I found the rest to be severely overrated.

Some of them are a bit overrated simply because when you put the word "indie" in front of something, critics suddenly afford it extra cool points for no real reason.

Nevertheless, Braid is one of the most interesting and unique puzzle games I've ever played. World of Goo has a great sense of humor and is the definitive game in the new physics puzzle genre. Audiosurf is kind of a weak music game, but being able to use any of your own MP3s for the music makes it worth the ride. Crayon physics allows a kind of freedom never allowed before in games because what you draw suddenly takes on physical properties that you use to solve puzzles. Blueberry Garden is only a simple game and not worth much money, but it has a dreamy charm to it. Darwinia is a great example of using interesting game design to overcome simple graphics. And The Path, though absolutely no fun to play, is a unique attempt to make art out of videogames and got me to rethink some of what we expect a videogame should be.

I think this pack is a steal.

If you're late to the party on anything Half Life related, then this is your lucky weekend. All the Half Life related titles are slashed 66% off and there are even better deals if you buy the packs that include multiple games. I already have the Orange Box, but didn't have the first Half Life or Team Fortress classic, so I just purchased the Half Life 1 Anthology for $5.09. That includes:

Team Fortress Classic
Half-Life
Half-Life: Opposing Force
Half-Life: Blue Shift

There are lots of other great Half Life related bargains, including getting the Valve Complete pack which has pretty much everything Valve has released for $10 bucks off the usual price.

Details here:

It's worth noting that a lot of source mods are starting to require HL2 Episode 2. This is because Ep2 was a drastic upgrade to the source engine, and the mods want to make use of the improvements. If you have any intention of playing source mods, (of which there are hundreds of free games worth playing) fork over the $5 for Ep2 immediately. You're insane if you don't.

It helps that Episode 2 is pretty good to play too :P
