The graphics are the only good thing about the game so far.
/Rant.
Different developers, it's a damn shame.

I pre-ordered Assassin's Creed 2 in the hopes it would be less repetitive than the first one (that was really my only complaint with it). I finally got around to picking it up yesterday, and played the first ten missions (I'm up to 'Jail Bird'). So far, very good, I'm absolutely loving it. We'll see how it goes though, cause I absolutely loved the first one for the first couple of hours too. It does seem a lot more in depth so far though.

Uncharted 2 vindicates the last decade of me playing games. All games have been leading to this point. I jizz a little bit when the menu music plays.

It's just about enough to make me go out and buy a PS3 this weekend.

You should totally do it. I think Costco has Uncharted 1 bundled with their PS3's now. Both games are amazing.

Steam's third day of sales is GO! Unfortunately, the site got smashed by traffic. I'll update as I get them.

As far as I can tell:

Left 4 Dead 75% off - 6.24
Trine 50% off - 8.49
Order of War 75% off - 7.49
Resident Evil 5 50% off - 14.99
Borderlands 33% off - 20.09
Ghostbusters 50% off - 7.49
Spore 50% off - 14.99
City of Heroes: Architect Edition 50% off (plus subscription) - 4.99

And that amazing THQ pack is still 50% off - only 26.49

Gog.com also have 30% off selected Interplay games. Some great ones in there.

I just played the demo of L4D2, having never played it or its predecessor before, and I loved it. Is the first one worth getting considering this, or should I just go all out and get L4D2?
