We held our ground, but... at what cost...
In some strange roll of luck, our ability to only play linux ported games paid off - deals like the bioshock triple pack, or all of the assassin's creed games were able to pass right over us without any harm, only small misgivings. I had a master plan, relating to the "mystery" trading cards that were floating about before the sale, and to my surprise, they plummeted in prices, so much so that at one point all hope was lost. One of my friends bailed out, crafting his badge early instead of waiting to sell the cards when the prices rose. I managed to make a few bucks profit off of my investment in those cards...But wait...
The half-life collection came at 75% off, and battered us down even though we had been expecting it for some time.
The first two witcher games came out and surprised us, lowering out wallet funds even more.
On the last day, I had managed to save some money, but I must give my yearly tithe to gaben.
of course, I had been eyeing system shock 2 for a while now.
and then friends recommended battleblock theatre, and at 75% off, hard to resist.
It has been a long journey, these past weeks.
