I think I spent 20 dollars directly in Steam... 90% of my purchases were paid for via Gamestop gift cards.

Yeah but that's the whole "I got it for free" when they mean "I had 50 dollars in gift cards" or my favorite "that game is 30 dollars!" no dumbass it's 60 dollars with a 30 dollar gift card"

Am I the only person who used less than half of the steam wallet money they set aside for this winter sale? Only thing I picked up was the RPG maker. I didn't notice any other deals that weren't previously available in steam sales already. Super disappointing sale, not nearly enough 75% off.

Well I only had 20 dollars in my wallet so RPG maker kinda slaughtered that even before I bought gifts.

I bought a few things and gifted some things, not the greatest sale in the world by far but it had a few good things

I bought Drakensang: ROT from Steam.
That's pretty much it.

Most of my money been going to Amazon DVG.


Same here, all Amazon for me except one game Amazon didn't have. For some reason my friend continually insists on getting inferior deals on Steam.

I ran the math and saved $60 over Steam's sale prices these past couple weeks. I spent around $70 so I practically doubled my spending power by shopping predominately at Amazon/GMG/GG (and I'm not counting the GG Beth/Bl2 4-pack errors in that $60).

I too recommend LastPass. Im a long time user of it, and love it.


+1; been using it for about 9 months, after I got fed up with RoboForm's change to an "online service we're going to charge you a ridiculous upgrade fee for every year." I found LastPass, used it for free on my PC for months, got a Nexus 7 in September and bought the annual pass. It's the best $12 I've spent. Yes it is an annual sub (and yes this is where the company makes all of its money), but for the price and convenience, it's the best cloud-based thing out there since Evernote (or maybe Google Play Music).

The Witcher 1 is pretty awful. Witcher 2 a rather expansive game that is greatly improved on from the first.


I'll disagree with this. Both are great games but I actually preferred the timing-based combat in the first game (although handling more than 2-3 opponents simultaneously is tricky in either one).

Am I the only person who used less than half of the steam wallet money they set aside for this winter sale? Only thing I picked up was the RPG maker. I didn't notice any other deals that weren't previously available in steam sales already. Super disappointing sale, not nearly enough 75% off.


I bought very little directly from Steam. My brother-in-law gave me a $20 Steam card for Christmas and I used it to buy the new Doctor Who game (even though it wasn't on sale-grr), Ignite, DETOUR, Nethergate: Resurrection, Bumbledore, a Sleeping Dogs DLC I ended up re-buying during the Big Glitch of 2013, and Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet.

This sale was much more about trading with CAGs and getting some solid deals from Amazon. The actual Steam sales were, as everyone has been saying, fairly lame.

I just signed up with Raptr
Having trouble putting in my steam ID
I followed instructions on how to get steam ID
I used my ID numbers and not user name still don`t work
Appreciate any Help


Hm. Persistence pays off? I found that it sometimes took a few tries to get this to work and even then it's a bit quirky. My Raptr works great with Steam and used to be okay at logging my PS3 trophies but despite the recent fancy visual upgrades, it hasn't noted any PS3 trophy activity in many months (some other users have this problem too and some don't--it doesn't appear to be a big priority on the "to-do" list).

From the looks of it, what you see is what you get. It was only an additional 48 hours for this, and if they added new ones when "yesterdays deals" end, it would make that part of the sale only 26 hours. They shouldn't be replaced.

But to answer your question directly, it was $37.49 (Dec. 28-30)

I think the ONLY discount it got during the sale was 25% off, making it $37.49

That's what I said at first, then by the later levels I got pretty frustrated at random nonsense. Most annoying was the enemies ability to go all Neo on me when I had them dead to rights in a fatal funnel. I guess they don't make combat shotties like they used to.


What frustrates me the most is the dogs and when you get shot by people off the screen. But I guess that would defeat the purpose of the look feature to plan out your attacks. I beat the game fine but getting A+ on every level I don't know if it will happen lol.

how sure are you?
i was thinking it might have been 33% off or 33.49
and that plus amazon editor's choice would equal decent deal

not 37.49-5 though

Pretty sure:

Was 25% off from Dec 28 - Dec 30 (as a daily deal). However, like others have mentioned, it is unlikely that tomorrow's deals will be any different from today's deals.

I ended up buying quite a bit - not just at this sale but over the months of November and December, but most of the purchases were low pricepoints like DLC or super-cheap games. Most of my big purchases were elsewhere. I definitely bought much less from Steam this year than I otherwise would have.

About Witcher 2:

Not saying it wasn't good. I enjoyed the first 75% of the game. By the end of Act 2, I was pretty indifferent. The problem was, I don't know the lore enough. The decisions I made was about as meaningful as flipping a coin, which made the climax very insignificant for me. I think the only character other than the Witcher I actually about was Triss. I really liked the first half of the game though.

But I guess I'm just weird.

I don't really like TWD that much either. I finished episode 3 so far. It's ok, but it's so linear, and so slow. Didn't help that I guessed from the beginning of Chapter 2 most of what happens. And I keep hearing that's the best episode, which kills my enthusiasm for 4 and 5.

I'm starting to see what games make GOTY. Interactive movies.

That seems to be the case for this generation. Games like heavy rain, and TWD are becoming so popular and I don't see the allure in it one bit. Maybe I'm just old school and prefer the awesome game play and the generic saving the princess from the castle story lines.

I'm curious if you played the first Witcher? The story of the Witcher 2 starts off not long after the events of the first game. Also I am only about half way through the second game but so far I enjoyed the setting/story of the first game more.

What have you bought?


Sorry for the late reply but I kinda hit the sack right after posting. I've bought SR2 but I think I'll send a message to steam support and ask if they can remove it so I can one day buy it off steam and get the non-censored edition.
