I went ahead and got the Crysis Maximum edition today.

Of course now there is the issue of to many games and not enough hdd space.

I've tried about 15 different.. all were slower and the Toronto/Montreal one.

Normally on steam i max out my connection, it's really just because of the sale :)

So far I picked up Team Fortress 2, Tropico 3 complete, and mirror's edge. Today's deals aren't that good in my opinion.

Dead Space for $6.80 isn't bad. I believe it's even cheaper if you have purchased any of the penumbra.

Ehh, Dead Space has been 5 bucks too many times in the past.

don't get dead-space, its absolutely trash for pc, its so broken its not funny. I bought it last xmas sale, spent like a hour going through forums doing workaround and fixes so that it was remotely playable....not worth it.

I don't know what your talking about, but the retail copy of Dead Space I bought ran flawlessly on my system. Performance was a little iffy (it was on a C2Q 6600 and 9800GT), but otherwise I never ran into a single problem.

^ how does that help? Not a lot of people buy xbox 360 controllers to use for their PCs.

He's onto something, a quick look at the steam forums shows lots of issues:
Dead Space - Steam Users' Forums

Don't buy.
