Default The Steam Sale - 01-02-2010, 12:44 PM

Just wondering if anyone else here has bought any netbook-friendly games on the Steam sale this Christmas?

So far I have bought Darwinia, Altitude and Braid.

Darwinia is a little strange, quite hard to get used to retro strategy, but runs well on my Mini9.

Altitude is by far one of the best purchases I have made. It's a 2D plane online dogfighting game with different types of planes, levelling and a perk system. Very addictive and a lot of fun to play. Highly recommended. Runs without any problems.

Lots of you have probably also heard of Braid - 2D platformer with a bit of a twist as in you can turn back time. Also runs well.

If you have stumbled across any 'must-have' games please let me know as I am always looking to expand my netbook games collection.

I'm not gonna be doing any gaming on my Mini, but the Steam sale has me thinking about building/buying a gaming desktop.

It's a great little device for doing some multiplayer gaming. Altitude, Teeworlds (free game you can find online), Age of Empires II and Medieval: Total War are currently my favourites for playing with a couple of mates, as pretty much any post-2003 computer can play them without problems.
