Re: Great Steam Deals (And other Online Distribution Systems

I own Saints Row 3 (which is awesome, and I recommend to anyone considering the bundle), so I bought it for Metro 2033 and Red Faction, although as you say, I'm not sure that I'll actually enjoy Red Faction. I've been avoiding it because it doesn't sound like it's actually very good.
