Sadly, doesn't look like the $90 publisher packs are gonna drop any. I guess it was too much to hope for the Ubi pack, since AC III didn't even get a discount at all.

Yeah I was hoping that Bethesda collection would be $60 or less....

The publisher packs are, without a doubt, the worst deals I've seen in a major Steam sale to date.

On the homepage there's a link saying that you can receive a notification whenever an item on your wishlist becomes a daily deal, but when I click on it it redirects me to my wishlist (I'm on a web browser).

Been around for too many Steam sales, I either have everything I want, or the discount is not big enough.

Mind you, for first time steam salers (?!?) this will be a fun, fun FUN time!

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

So as for the holiday sale badge...

Anyone buying anything want to update us on how some of these achievements work? Namely:

Does The Holiday Spirit achievement (buy a gift) work if you store the game in your inventory? Because if so that's one way the uncharitable among us can get on this (or if you just don't want to send out the gift until Christmas day)

Does It Pays for Itself (buy any discounted item) work whether you're buying a gift or for yourself?

Well the Bethesda one has Skyrim AND Dishonored so...

And UBI has AC III, so...

Not that bad considering new releases in them

There's a link under the section for customer's choice voting: http://steamcommunity.com/my/badges


It's been a while and they still haven't shed any light on what the hell the badges are supposed to do for us. It can't be anything significant, just some meaningless reward in lieu of games or anything actually useful. I never go to someone's profile and ogle their badges. Nobody does.

you only need to achieve 4 of the 6 tasks to get the badge, so if you don't have a phone with steam mobile you can still get the badge


I guess those of us without phones who desire useless steam badges will have no choice but to buy something in the store... not that I could resist doing that anyway :bouncy:

Yep that one is pretty surprising as it's been 75% off last couple of sales.

Personally I feel like I am gonna grab a few things towards the end, stuff that I been wanting to grab because nothing is super huge on sale.

For example Penny Arcade Ep 3 for $2 and Fairy Bloom Freesia for $3.50 or whatever it was.


Yeah, PAEp3 and Ticket to Ride are my most likely purchases this sale, it seems. Hoping to get TWD cheap off Amazon in January (does it require Steam? That might be an issue if it doesn't.) Oh, looks like Gods & Kings finally has a sale price - if that hits 75% I might pick that up as well.

I would just like to point out that Bad Rats is 49 cents.


In that you'll pay me $.49 cents to play it? I think that's still too low.

You can buy it and store it in your inventory and then activate it. It'll give both of those achievements to you. I was buying E.Y.E for myself and when I saw your post I figured I would test it and it works.

Some of them end in 10 hours.

My guess is we'll see some this sale that end in fewer than 10 hours too.

I picked it up during the last big sale for $12.50 so it has been lower before. Everything in this sale looks more expensive than in the past though.

Posted 20 December 2012 - 06:24 PM

Yeah.. I was thinking about getting the Square Enix Collection this sale - but $89.99 seems high to me - am I crazy?



When I bought the Square publisher pack last year it was a total complete pack with every single thing they had in the store for $50. Now mind you I got an extra $20 off of it for pre-ordering Deus Ex but still. That was a lot of games and not just a greatest hits with no DLC either.

I think the fact that they've got some new releases in there like Sleeping Dogs and Hitman is driving the price up, but even so Sleeping Dogs has already hit $13 and Hitman $20. The rest have been next to nothing at some point.

I don't know, maybe if they threw in the new Tomb Raider pre-order it might be worth that, but definitely not as it stands.
