just wondering, I might going to be out of town for a little while and would hate to miss that sale I've been waiting patiently for, is it possible to buy steam games from the steam website?

Bought Assasin's Creed II (even tought you need to log in to play, my HAF 932 case doesn't really move so, i like been maybe 4 times with no internet for like 10 years, pretty realiable). Downloading at an EPIC 250k/s

Bought the Borderlands Add on too, with a friend

I missed the Dead Rising 2 sell, so i've bought it on GFWL (same price), at least it was maxing out my 50mbits connections on that service..

You know, you can use other steam servers to get better speeds.

Damn, I'm at 41

btw, is Global Agenda worth it? I played closed beta and never bought it. Apparently they've updated it a lot and it's pretty decent now. $7.49 is tempting.

I got ARMA 2 - OA and the two DLCs. Didn't get the original, but I think OA is better.

A few interesting options today, I'm thinking about Crysis and one or two others. Curious to see what they pull out tomorrow.
