Well here's the big news.

http://store.steampowered.com/news/

Encore weekend



Is this a joke? So stuff that's been on sale 3-4 times already will be up for a 5th time? If anything this sale needed less 'encores' and repeats and a wider coverage of titles as far as feature deals go.

I just updated Enhanced Steam to version 1.1, which adds the long-worked-on options page to the extension, where you can set which colors you want for highlighting games, as well as enabling / disabling the "Total spent" tally on your account page.

The settings use the Google Chrome Storage Sync API, so if you have multiple browsers signed in at multiple locations, your preferences should sync to all of your clients.

Now to add more features! :)


Looks great! For us non-Chrome users, do you have the link to the last version of the Greasemonkey script that you built? I'd like to try it on Opera (which has support for some user scripts built-in) and see if it works.

I believe this is the "latest" version of the script for Greasemonkey:

Note that this does not extend the seasonal sale price cuts on all the less loved games. Only have till 10AM PST tomorrow for those.

The Fallout games had better show up today. I've told several people over the past few days not to worry about it, that they're guaranteed to show up before the sale ends. I would hate to have misinformed them. It certainly seemed very likely.


You liar. I'll never forgive you. *sob*

Eryi's is like:

Oh you're going to jump there? Whoops we forgot to tell you hidden spikes pop up from the ground there. LOL.


I've only played a little Eyri, but I quickly found that viewing it as a puzzler instead of a platformer was essential.

Two questions:

1. What will be the post-sale Valve troll daily this time around?

Spoiler

2. What are you picking up once the last Flash Sale is posted?

Mine:
- maybe iBomber Defense Pacific (simple TD game from iOS but the first one was pretty fun)


1) Sam & Max! (maybe not...)

2) I'm concerned that since Disney bought Lucas, some of their properties might disappear off Steam soon. So I'l be picking up the LucasArts Adventure Pack, and possibly Lucidity or Star Wars: Empires at War Gold.

I was thinking about the Daedalic Bundle, but with all the Amazon sales recently (and Walking Dead next week) I think I've spent more than enough on videogames this holiday season.

There is still quite a large community. And yes it has matchmaking and you can play solo with AI or with friends if you like as well. It is quite fun. Hope this helps. Also according to steam stats roughly 15,000+ are playing L4D2 currently and 1,500+ playing the original right now. Enjoy!

At this point I have nothing else to buy.

OFC i want released like xcom or dishonored, but they will be too expensive even at (if they go) 75%.

Newer titles I will have to wait till next summer sale :P.

Thanks. It seems not to work in Opera, unfortunately (unless I'm doing something wrong, which is definitely possible). Oh well -- worth the shot!

So I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but A Valley Without Wind is on sale for $5.99 (60% off) until the end of the sale and anyone who buys it (or previously bought it) gets A Valley Without Wind 2 beta access now and the full game when it is released next month.

The new game has an overhead city management aspect and it's reminding me more of Act Raiser, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet even though I own the first game.

Star Wars Battlefront 2

What Sleeping Dogs DLC do you recommend?


The free ones. I didn't like Nightmare at all. Random story about a ghoulish invasion, doesn't add to the campaign of the main game, takes 1-2 hours to complete, and the achievements are a grindfest for another couple of hours.

Edit: Someone was selling a Steam code in the trade forums. PMed him asking about its availability, he says he has it. PayPal him the money, and he says it's gone. Left a bad taste in my mouth and I'm still mildly upset about it.

High rez texture pack if you have the VRAM. My 896MB GTX 260 handled it fine.

If you want to save a few bucks only buy 2. Most of the maps from 1 were added in. Also if you buy a 4 pack ill buy the other three copies from you.

I guess it doesn't bother me with Eryi's because that game is so up front about what it's trying to be. Basically I Want To Be The Guy but prettier and with frequent checkpointing.
