I hope the new Unwritten Tales game releases with a discount on the first. Of course, I was hoping for the same with Deponia and that didn't happen.

Luckily you're getting not just a good lol but a surprisingly fun game. I got it to 100% and had enjoyed every minute.


Yes, Coconut Queen was actually a very fun game.

Well think I made my second buying mistake on steam.

Purchased SF4AE Complete for $13.50 during the flash sale. Wouldn't have bought it if I knew ahead of time that the online community is DEAD. Barely a handful of people playing online (checked multiple times during the day-evening).

The good news, my MvC Xbox Stick worked just fine. :(

fufufu, Microsoft posted a 9.99 sale late Friday night/early Saturday morning. Unadvertised, caught everyone off guard who was in the Micro thread at the time. Had a number of great games at 10 (like Skyrim and Diablo 3 and Tekken Tag 2, etc.)...just had to be up to catch it;)


That was crazy because I was on the site the whole time and never clicked the PC side during that morning.


Hope they do it again for Christmas.

Different strokes. This thread was a primary reason why I stuck around; the community atmosphere and games talk (what's good, what is buggy, what's just terrible) and even the banter made it an interesting and informative place for talking about sales.

Those multicolored hugging guys look pretty dream-esque. As opposed to looking "Dreamy".

That's all good, but you don't think the title is the least bit misleading? If I wanted to load up Steam, I wouldn't be looking at CAG for deals (in response to other comments). I search the deals page for deals from everywhere, and if every other group thread can list the deals (Like Amazon, GMG, GamersGate, etc), why can't the "Steam Sale Thread'? I understand that those of you that are invested in this thread don't care, but we did the same thing in the trading threads & they got butthurt & re-arranged the rules because of it. By all means, have a discussion, or whatever. I just wish someone would spend some of the time updating the OP like all the other threads in the Deals section.

Welp, the Family Feud Collection has been removed from the steam store. And wouldn't you know it, I had it in my cart this morning and almost pulled the trigger on it, but then I decided that I had spent enough money and I would put it on the Holiday sale shopping list.

This comes after spending the entire Autumn sale buying things not based on how much I want to play them right now, but on prioritizing items that I felt were possible candidates to get pulled from the store.

:(


Now that is interesting. Is there anywhere a list of possible candidates to get pulled from the store (why I bought Doom 3 and not the BFG edition in case they take the reg edition and expansion off since they are included in BFG)? That would be a good list to have along side a large sale like this or the summer/winter sales.

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

With the recent steam sale, anyone that paid with a Discover card should look at their next statement and possibly call/chat with Customer Service. With the 5% cashback promotion for *all* online purchases, I had the suspicion it wasn't giving me credit for them. I noticed my steam transactions were saying POS Mode Description as Manually Keyed whereas things like Amazon were saying Online. Snippet of the online conversation with them below for validity.

Thanks for the heads up. I never would have noticed this.

There are three options of dealing with things you are unsatisfied with.

1) Leave it alone and move along to somewhere else.

2) Attempt to put some effort in to make it into the way you want it.

3) Complain.

Continuing to nag about it isn't going to make people do what you want them to do.

PS - the person who updates the Amazon deals thread (at least the PC Digital Download one) is an employee of Amazon. The other sites generally have sales that are far less comprehensive than Steam's big sales or the amount of stuff that Amazon routinely puts on sale. In those threads it's usually just one person who took it on themselves to update the thread with being asked (or complained at) to do it.

Jeez, you don't even need to load up Steam. Just go to their store via the web and it takes all of thirty seconds to check what the daily and midweek/weekend deal is... hell I even think they might have some twitter feed that broadcasts it. For larger sales it's pointless to include all of the deals since 95% of the store is on sale.

ERMAGURRR I don't have thirty seconds to check Steam's web page. As the kids today say 'First World Problem, dawg!' Makes me wonder how some people would have been able to live before the internet.

You have time to argue about the thread title though. With all the time you spend complaining you could be updating OP's that nobody reads.

I'm telling you if you can look at one website you can look at another. You say it as if it takes more than 10-30 seconds of your time (which I suspect isn't that valuable).
