Welcome to the Steam Deal Thread V6! You can find link to past threads at the bottom of this post. Read post #2 of this thread for Steam FAQs and more.

With the V6 Thread, we're trying a slight formatting change. We used to list every possible Steam deal in the OP, but they change too frequently for anyone to keep up with (even in the Wiki format). So now, we'll leave regular minor sales out of the OP. This post will keep track of major sales (Winter sale, etc.), Steam deals available through other sellers (like Amazon), Preorder deals, and Group Buys.

I would still greatly appreciate help from you folks at home in keeping this smaller-scale OP up-to-date. This is a Wiki post so anyone can contribute. Wiki instructions:
Thanks for your help! If you notice a sale has ended, feel free to delete its line from the sale list. Of course, if you see something does need to be added, then kindly add it to the list.

Make sure your changes match the thread's format! For example, every game that's on sale is part of an unordered list. When adding a game to the list, copy an existing line and update the link, title, and prices. That way, the format stays correct. Do not list percentages off! We list the original price and the sale price here. If you have any suggestions for major changes to the post/thread, PM me (EastX) about them.

Free Stuff - List needs updating with F2P games!
There are several free games and mods on Steam. These are a few choice ones; you can find a full list here. Note that free games are not permanently attached to your Steam account like actual purchases would be. You'll need to manually download a game again from the website if you uninstall it.


Steam around CAG

If you are interested in joining the Steam CAG Community or participating in a trade or group buy with fellow Cheap Ass Gamers, please do so in the dedicated threads and not in the deal discussion thread. In the dedicated threads you will find CAGers with the same specialized interest who will be much quicker (and happier) to respond than in the Deals thread.

Past Special Sales

Visit www.steamgamesales.com to check previous sale prices on Steam games. We do keep track of some older sales here though:

Steam Retail Key List

What is a CD key and where can I find it?

Steam's explanation and list of Steam-activatable keys

The CD Key is a serial number with a combination of 13, 18, or 25 letters and numbers - it can be found on a sticker inside your game's case or printed on the game's quick reference card. The CD Key acts as your proof of purchase for the game - Steam Support may ask for it if you need to establish your ownership of an account. It is recommended that you keep your CD Key in a safe place to ensure the security of your account.

Other Keys that can be redeemed on Steam (CAG tested & verified)

Because of that difference, I briefly thought I had just passed the 300+ mark for games owned, but I actually only own 186. It's that damn Dungeon Defenders DLC! Oh and Magicka's. And with this sale, I'm hoping to artificially inflate my game count even further with some SR3 DLC :p
 
[quote name='anarchyoblivion']Yeah, total games differs greatly between games owned and DLC - the larger the library, the larger the spread. I have 1155 actual games and 1998 in total.[/QUOTE]
WOW that is a lot of games lol I think i'm doing pretty good considering I started Steam shopping in July of this year.

All versions of Magic: The Gathering with Foil Conversions and extra shit added 100+ "games" to my library.
 
[quote name='BigSpoonyBard']Important new thread discussion in the BGCQ, folks.[/QUOTE]
I feel like I'm missing out of something, but I don't know what. :whistle2:(
 
The Mayan apocalypse is actually the beginning of the Steam sale. First, the servers blow, which begins a chain reaction across the entire networked world. Soon, we're all dead.
 
[quote name='kaydigi']Been waiting all year for this. I hope Fallout GOTY, and the Capcom DLC is on sale again.[/QUOTE]

Yeah the Capcom stuff is mostly what I'm after this sale if any hits 75% off. Also after Towns, Doctor Who, and a few of the Lego games.
 
[quote name='louiedog']A source inside Valve just leaked today's deal to me. It's everything. Everything will be on sale. Except Kingdoms of Amalur.[/QUOTE]

:applause:

They're saving that for a Daily Deal 80% off the day after the sale ends.
 
4 minytes left
Will be picking up some stuff but holding off on terraria and Dungeons of Dredmor JUST incase they are added to the new humble bundle next week.

I'd do your research on Towns first, it still doesn't feel "finished" to me.
 
qUICK, how do i disable the email notifications for things on my wishlist going on sale?! i cant find it in settings. this thread is too long, i cant find it if som1 mentioned it already.

I was thinking the same thing. Steam sale takes out the Internet, then we get hit by an asteroid.

account details -> email notifications i believe
 
[quote name='Flowette']I'd do your research on Towns first, it still doesn't feel "finished" to me.[/QUOTE]

This. The interface in towns is frustrating enough that it actually made me angry trying to use it, and I usually don't mind obtuse games.
 
Valve should "accidentally" discount Kingdoms of Amalur for 4 hours and then Doug Lombardi can roll up to the Rhode Island comptroller's office in a convertible, take off his sunglasses, and present them with a big novelty check and say, "you're welcome," before speeding off.

Thanks for the input on Towns all. I'll certainly check into it before jumping the gun.

That cracked me up. :applause:
 
LOL @ $70 Indie bundle. It is even worse than some of you thought. Most people seem to think $50 tops.

I have most of those games and think combined I didn't even pay $20.

Yeah $70 for what you could have (over the last two years) conceivably paid less than $7 for.
 
[quote name='jshackles']Seems like most of the big publisher packs are at $89.99 this go round.[/QUOTE]
That really disappoints me.....
 
[quote name='AdvOfJet']I love that Batman AC is 75% off right now but has a vote to make it a new deal at 66% :D[/QUOTE]

Also, on my end it keeps saying "The Community Chose..." The Witcher 2 100%. I thought... that was fast...
