I swung over to the Steam storefront and the big picture at that moment was Fallout 3 GOTY. Could it be on sale? Then I looked down, saw the $49.99 price tag and resigned myself to knowing the party was indeed over. :(

It's over? Now what? :shock:

It feels so...empty.

I need to go through and make a final list of all of my purchases eventually. It'd be interesting to see how much I saved off of Steam's regular prices, too.

Sale's done! Requesting lock!

'Twas an epic thread; discussion continued in PC subforum!

Dragon Age and the Steam sale renewed my interest in PC gaming. Now I'm trying to figure when I can put together another rig. Anyone know when the next batch of Intel processors is supposed come out? I'll probably buy an i5 when that happens...

Valve Complete and Super ID Software Pack ~$110

~45 games comes out to ~$2.45 a game. Granted a few are Half-Life Lost Coast and Commander Keen.

Unfortunately, this also means I'll have to get a new computer because I'm fairly certain L4D2 wont run on an my MBAs Intel GMA intergrated GPU. Not to mention the size constraints.

Don't know if anyone is still reading this thread or even cares but here's my final tally:

Defense Grid - $2.50
Jade Empire - $3.75
Trine - $5
Ghostbusters - $6.79
LucasArts Adventure Pack - $2.50
Broken Sword Twin Pack - $5
Left 4 Dead 2 - $26
Tomb Raider Legend - $13.39

Total: $65

Would have bought Civ4 complete and the Witcher if I hadn't already bought them during a midweek madness on Steam earlier this winter.
Considered a lot of the cheaper games many were getting but decided to rather concentrate my time and money on the two more expensive titles I really wanted; Tomb Raider Legend and L4D2.

All in all very happy with my purchases! I must confess I was glued to this thread and the Steam page throughout my christmas vacation. In a way I'm glad it's over so I can think about something else :)

And finally, big thanks to Arben, Vendetta and N64Fanboy for making the L4D2 4-pack come together!

too tired to post, but if you go back like 2-3 pages you'll find a repost. or go back several pages and everyone talks about them. in short - they were repeats of the better deals.

Just checked out steamcalculator.com... my account value before the sale was ~$140, now it's ~$720!! Net gain of ~$580 in games, and it only cost me ~$135!!

What a great sale, though I'm glad it's over cause I was getting tired of obsessively scouring the deals, reading reviews, buying, and repeating the process for hours on end lol.

I'm so pissed I missed Plants vs. Zombies and Jade Empire though.[end rant]

egad i remember why i never finished kings quest 2 or 3. they are ass hard. in kq2 there is a hag that randomly shows up and eats you. and if you dont stash your magic ingredients in part 3, the wizard just shows up and turns you to dust. there is a fairy that sprinkles fairy dust on your to make you temporarily invulnerable in part 2, but hell, i mean i am making some progress and then bam instantly killed, gameover. save often.

morrowind still kicks ass, but i liked it better on the xbox.

I'm pissed i missed L4D yet again. i mean really the one day I didn't check that's the day for L4D. I am really pleased with my Torchlight purchase though so that make sup for it somewhat.

Aha! A few games I didn't buy on steam turned up at half-price books today. STALKER was $6, making me feel smug about my $4 of savings, which went to Nikopol, an adventure I didn't want to drop ten speculative bucks on. Also got Mercs 2 for $5, and a boxed copy of Defcon.

eyour magic ingredients in part 3, the wizard just shows up and turns you to dust.


I KNOW! That guy pissed me off to no end. But man, talk about gratification when you turned that bitch into a cat with a simple little cookie. Revenge is best served...sweet?

save often.


Truer words have never been said about the classic Sierra games.

A little late tot he survey party, but here's my answers:

1. What games did you buy during the Steam holiday sale?
Daily deals:
GTA IV
Serious Sam HD
Red Faction: Guerilla
Zombie Driver
Prey
Killing Floor
Jade Empire
Mr. Robot
Darwinia + Multiwinia
Trine
Morrowind

Non-daily deals:

LucasArts Adventure Pack (Indiana Jones 1 & 2, Loom, and The Dig)
Judge Dredd: Dredd Vs. Death
Borderlands: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned
Outrun 2006
Machinarium

2. What game or package that you purchased was the best deal?
GTA 4, Trine, and Jade Empire were all great deals.

3. What game have you had the most fun with so far?
Zombie Driver! It plays like a classic PSOne game, such as GTA. It's fun destroying zombies in various ways and going after primary and secondary objectives in each stage.

4. Were you disappointed with any of the games you bought during this sale?
No, but I wish I could have afforded the Sam & Max Complete pack or the Telltale Complete pack. There's always never year.
