So Steam’s Summer Sale began a few days ago.  It’s an exciting time because I have some money that I got for my birthday, and I’m going to buy video games with it just like I haven’t been out of high school for over ten years.  Here’s what I’ve bought so far:

Shogun 2: Total War    $7.50

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare     $3.74

The Walking Dead     $14.99

I was very excited to find The Walking Dead for $10 off (still available as of this posting by the way).  I’ve heard great things about the first two installments, and I’m anxious to play them. If you’re looking for some great pc games on the cheap, you can buy Amnesia: The Dark Descent (otherwise known as the scariest game ever made) for $4.99 for the next six hours, and Portal 2 is $9.99 (although I’ve seen it drop as low as $4.99, and it may again before the sale is over).

I’ve still got my eye on a couple of things.  If Skyrim drops low enough I’ll be tempted to grab it, although I have no idea when I’ll find the time to play it.

Any recommendations?

Apparently if you’re the number one fan of the greatest rock band since the Beatles, you get to do cool stuff.

Like create a set list for a concert.

If I’ve figured it out right (and I’m sure I have because it includes Bugs), this is the set list that Farias put together.

My own would look something like this:

Set 1
Life Wasted
The Fixer
Unthought Known
In My Tree
Better Man
Hail Hail
Worldwide Suicide
Nothing as it Seems
Can’t Keep
Given to Fly

Encore 1
Do the Evolution
I Got Id

Encore 2
I’ve Got a Feeling
Glorified G
Baba O’Riley
Yellow Ledbetter

I felt compelled to try and include at least two songs off of all of their studio albums, just for fairness sake.  Even so, it’s obviously heavy on the early stuff, and I’m not sure I was able to find two off Riot Act I would like to hear more than any of the others.  What should I have included that I didn’t?  Or should I have put them in a different order?
