The Gaming Gods are firing back at me. After buying loads and loads of games I finally set aside some time this weekend to get started on all of them. So I wake up, realize I'm 5 hours away from the 1st playoff game so I got really excited to play Hitman Absolution, so I turn on the computer and...

Just installed this ... man, Steam could really benefit from implementing some of these features.


I'm just glad people like the changes! :)

Brothers in Arms Pack
Lowest was $9.99 on two occasions. Last time it was $9.99 was on May 28 2011. $12.99 or $13.39 seems to be the sale prices over the past few years.

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway
Lowest was $5 on two occasions. Last time it was $5 was on May 28 2011. $6.49 or $6.69 seems to be the sale prices over the past few years.

I feel your pain. I've had computers/components die on me during three Steam sales now. Last time was Summer Sale 2011 when going for the Hoard cheevo for tickets. That game runs hot, especially in July, and it was suddenly new power supply time, all along with the feeling that I'm racing the clock.

It looks like Star Wars (LucasArts) in general went to 75% off during last years winter sale. I just picked up The Force Unleashed at 50% off however, as I don't have a warm and fuzzy about Disney dropping the prices anytime soon. (Let alone keeping them on Steam.)



This is my concern too so I might just grab the bundle now ensuring that it will go down to 75% off before it is removed from Steam. :)

Thanks everyone for your responses to my question!

One of the things I'm wanting to add to the Enhanced Steam plugin (to follow with my love of color coding things) is highlighting games which you have coupons for.

Yes it's the last day, well really last hour now.

There will be a 'best of' sale today and tomorrow but no one is exactly sure which games will be on it so if you aren't sure, or want something that wasn't a flash or daily you better get it ASAP.

Greatest hits sale, so the sale isn't over today. I wanted Deadlight but I held off at 50% twice... maybe I should bite the bullet if it comes up again.

I felt this sale was really disappointing but like others it was probably mostly due to the fact that I already bought everything I wanted in prior sales. It could have been a great sale for people who are new to Steam, I don't know. A lot of the prices were worse than recent deals from Amazon and Greenman though.

Considering they still have Split Second on Amazon and it's on sale no less. I'm not worried.

Last I checked, Disney isn't out to play Nazi with the Star Wars brand. They certainly didn't do that with Marvel or any other brand they own did they?

Also, is the Witcher 2 worth it at $7.50? I have a big backlog so I won't get to it right away, could wait if needed.



Alright, thanks!


Is it worth it? Absolutely. Will it be hit $2.50 to $5.00 during the next Summer/Thanksgiving/Holiday Sale? Almost guaranteed.

My vote: wait if you're definitely not gonna play it anytime soon.

I'm fairly confident that Witcher 2 is going to be $7.50 on sale at best through this year. On the Steam storefront, anyway. It would take a change to the game's base price to get it lower and they seem to be doing pretty well as it is.

That said, I'm waiting. Still haven't played the original.

Good man, I feel better not being the only one that picked this up.


It was my New Year's resolution to be more fiscally responsible, given the times and what not. I saw the demos and videos, saw 25% off and bought it and the phone app.

So far it's working. I decided to use savings and pay off my CC debt (was already almost there) and this allows me to better follow my spending. The free classes on the website are great, too.

I highly recommend it why it's still on sale. After two classes, I finally had everything sync'd. Felt good.

I'm betting in future sales it'll be more like $7.50 for Witcher 2 + Witcher 1. I truly doubt it will get much lower then that.

Dammit, knew there was a 4-pack I forgot to get in on. One more purchase! (I think that's the Sale equivalent of One more turn)


Sad thing is... I don't know what the game is about, I just saw the 4pack and went "sure, why not" so that's one of the clearer examples of me just spending money, I guess I should get that budget software as well D:

Spent $0 in real money since I got Steam money from trade-ins:

I got all my big purchases from other retailers:

Overall, the Steam sale was disappointing because they couldn't match their own previous sale prices. The Star Wars games and Sonic Generations never hit 75% like they had in other sales. But the DoW pack was an incredible deal.

Could be the publishers though for all we know.(Yes I know some stuff went for sale for less on other sites, but who knows how that all works. They could have specific deals or something IDK)

All of them.

Prices have changed and will change throughout January. Price matching yields the best results. Max Payne 3 was $10, some of the bundles were $5, SpecOps $2.50, etc. The Walking Dead will be $7.50 with the price match (and is also scheduled for that deal on Sunday).
