What's next?
Sleeping Dogs for $5?


Well, I picked it up on GMG for $13 and have been enjoying it. Rockstar could learn a couple things from it.

Why is this thread even in the deals section? when is the last time the 1st post has been updated? I frequently check this thread cuz it's bumped, and it's got junk like "Torchlight 2 PREORDER". WTF? This is just a convo thread now, so it's just taking up space.

My haul from steam alone:

Witcher 1/2 - 10
Chivalry - 12
Borderlands GOTY -7.50
Bionic Commando Rearmed- 5 (first time its ever been on sale since its been released, pick it up if u havent already.)
Critter Crunch - 1.75
Legend of Grimrock - 3.75


Really good haul imo :). Nearly everything was 75% off and I believe the cheapest it will ever go (unless its a indie bundle...)

Chivalry was the only one I didnt get at 75%. :)

Im pretty much done till the winter sales. They really need to put the Ys series on sale!

Also this being my first Steam season sale...I have learned some valuable lessons. Earlier this year I bought Torchlight 2 and Orcs Must Die at full price. While they were great games, these indie titles were only released like 5 months ago...now they are 75%. I know next year to wait instead of buying day one on indie titles especially

I check this thread regularly. I both find AND POST deals I find on Steam games. Seriously, if you're into getting the best prices on Steam, this thread can't be beat.

True it becomes a bit of a "lounge" when the major sales are on, but I think that's mostly because ALMOST EVERYTHING is on sale. Would you prefer that we all make our own threads for the 1000+ titles currently on sale? :D

You do have a point that the OP isn't updated as often as it should be. But it is updated by the CAG community and there are only a handful of people who even bother. If you feel that it should be updated, perhaps you should take the initiative and do it yourself.

Yeah you may be right... your "prediction" and mine are both examples of the now classic "SR3 $13 Bundle low/high percent off" sales they ran. I believe the troll in question was the hard-hitting Jade Empire rare sale followed immediately by the even cheaper Jade Empire daily.

Valve rarely strikes twice with the same troll and it's almost impossible to prepare a defense.

Oh, yeah - I most definitely ain't forgot the SR3 Franchise Pack for $13 on Steam...
...a few days after I bought SR3 (base game) for $10 from Amazon DVG.

I think we can't completely count our Final Hauls yet...
...since in 34 minutes or so (and counting), we all might get TROLLED w/ new Flash Deals. :P

EDIT:
I guess we could always EDIT our hauls if we listed them already, hehe. ;)

These posts are useless without final totals. I need somebody to post that they spent more money than me so I don't feel so bad about spending $90.

Oh and don't regret the Prototype pack. Those games are published by Activision. They may never be that cheap again.

Prototype Pack deal was a blast. :D
That's a really fun game.
Surely got by $7.49 worth on it.
I needed it namely for Prototype 2 + RADNET DLC, since I already owned Prototype 1 from Retail.

I only spent $44.31 with Steam so far. But I dropped $22.50 at GMG and $42.20 at Amazon (for Steam games).

So I'm at $109.01 at the moment. Bring on the last Flash Deals!

I'm too self-conscious about spending to throw out my total haha but it was around $50 at least, I'll probably go back and add prices. I also bought Sleeping Dogs for $16 about 2 weeks ago too along with SS3: BFE.

& why is that? BO2? lol. glad it was the $7.50 price anyways

$250 for me across all apps (GameFly, Amazon, Steam, GreenManGaming, GamersGate)

I think the "troll" of this sale could easily be Skyrim. I would not be surprised at all if next week's "Midweek Madness" is for Skyrim and it's DLC to celebrate the release of the Dragonborn expansion. My prediction is 66% off, making it $19.99 for the base game.

EDIT: Oh snap, I totally thought it was coming to PC on the 4th! I guess it's just for 360 for now.

Good guess, they will certainly do something for the new DLC's release.
