im fine with anything so long as they dont have those horrid flash sales again.
also I dont want to do any achievement hunting. Everytime they had achievement hunting, I ended up wasting so much time to actually do them. I dont think I ever bought a game JUST to do its achievement, but I did think about it for a few of the cheap games.


I think you're better than me then :p

Clearly I did have some interest in the game, but, yeah, wouldnt have bought it w/o the achievement.

When the stars and moon align, so Hydrophobia and Magicka are on sale simultaneously.

Imagine if this thread had a Valve rep posting here.

"VALVE REP IS GAME X GOING ON SALE"
"VALVE REP CAN YOU PRICE-MATCH THE GREY-MARKET KEY SALE ON SKETCHY WEBSITE Y"
"VALVE REP THIS THREAD IS TOO BIG AND I CAN'T SEARCH THE LAST TWO PAGES, BUT ANSWER MY QUESTION ANYWAY"

Seriously though I hope the Steam sale has prices similar to Amazon. I have so much money in my Paypal account.

Not to detract from Amazon's sales (they are great), but most of their really good ones are bundles, and odds are a lot of us already have/had a few games from those bundles making them a not so great deal for us.

Amazon has had some great prices on single games no doubt though.

I love the fact that, in my timezone, the day is almost over and, when I wake up tomorrow, I'll be thrown in a warzone scenario with burst of (hopefully) amazing sales, screams of disappointment, burning scars of past flash reductions, whispered wiretaps of incoming offers, shattered dreams, miles of pages to browse to try and recollect data and so on... it'll be like watching one of the best episodes of Lost, only in first person and textual form! 8-)

oh how I claim bullshit. BF3 beta would barely even run off mine. I nearly cried that day.

I'm just sad it fried to death via the PSU, but it served well for like 4+ years.


No bullshit. I have no idea how this thing has held out for so long for me. To be fair, I have not played BF3 and have no idea how that would run. But XCOM, Saint's Row the Third, Deus Ex: HR, etc. all run without any issues.

My bottleneck on this computer right now has pretty clearly been the 4 gigs of ram.

What sales are people looking forward too?
Id like to hear more about what games people are looking forward too so I have a better idea to know what games look fun so I can keep an eye on them.


I've reached my saturation point with Steam sales personally :(

The drug just has no effect on me anymore.

I have to resort to buying games like this:

http://www.gamersgat.../the-real-texas

and obscure European sims from other retailers.

I probably got my biggest high when I saw the new Indie Gala and the games I want most on Steam are on Greenlight (Sang Froid for example).

Most of what I'm looking forward to are games that haven't yet or rarely see a discount. Here are some from my wish list:

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II
FTL: Faster Than Light
Beyond Divinity
Mark of the Ninja
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Wanderlust: Rebirth

I'm also holding on to hope that some newer titles will see discounts, but I'm guessing I'll need to wait for the winter sale:

Scriblenauts Unlimited
Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock
Towns

But who knows!

Walking Dead is $12.49 on Amazon. Steamworks.


But, does it activate on Steam? I don't want to use the Amazon client, it's a disaster. All other clients should bow down to Steam and offer sacrifices of crappy indie platformers. I think this guy feels the same...

But that just says it uses Steamworks. I wanna know if it registers on Steam or not. Oh well, thanks anyways guys. :cry:


But, in all seriousness, I plan on using steam wallet for my purchases so I'm hoping for the same on Steam.

Gotta love that simulator bundle, many gamers are raging about how they cant get John Deere drive green anymore on steam since it revolutionized tractor simulations for pc gaming.


That was indeed tragic. I think next time I will be a bit more assertive with some of the games I want on Steam. I always passed on John Deere thinking next sale, next sale - and now - no cigar!

That said, if it is cheap enough I might be picking up a few copies of Secret of the Magic Crystal to support and get in on the part 2 action.

To be fair, XCOM runs perfectly fine on all high settings on my old system, but BF3 on low/med plays like one of those hula girl flip books...with half the pages missing.

Most of the stuff I'm looking for are games that have been in bundles that I've missed. Top 2 are Blackwell and MacGuffin's Curse.

Sounds like you have steam fatigue, not really much left there for me, hope they fix that over that years and get some new games.


And yet there's more ways to expand. I'd love to see NFS:U2 style pimp-my-combine, spinners, ground effect lighting, etc.

I can also definitively say that the first game that let me drive combine was Carmageddon!

I think the sale I'd like to see most is the Still Life series.

I played through Post Mortem after getting it from the Groupees bundle and want to see what those guys do next.

Otherwise I don't really know. Maybe something cheap will surprise me, but I don't anticipate spending more than $15 this sale.

Hotline Miami is really good in my oppinion. It's worth the $10 so anything less is a steal. I put more time into that than some of the AAA titles I've bought recently. It might have just struck the right chord with me but it's got good buzz review wise. Watch Giant Bomb's QuickLook. it shows it off perfectly.

So it's water vapor and not steam, but this is what the last two pages back reminded me of:

Spoiler


As long as this sale is just that, and not an achievement or objective hunt, I'll be happy. This time of year is too damned busy for such foolishness.
