Wasn't DOTA2 a flash or daily sale earlier for only 50% off? And now they're offering it as a potential 75% off in a user choice sale?


This is what Steam does best. The good ol' gotcha. Ask all the people who gave in and bought Jade Empire last sale only to have that *#&!@$# go on sale right after. It was hilarious to watch the cries of foulplay.

Any lists of games that I should buy that are under advertised, appreciated, rated? Usually see one ore more this time of the sale

Dr. Strange CAG- Or how I learned to stop worrying and love cheap stuff.

Christianity: The belief that a Jewish cosmic zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat fruit from a magical tree.

Not voting for anything. Silent protest. Can't imagine there are people without Dota 2 yet nor would I enable them to make the colossal mistake of paying for it. Portal 2 and Counterstrike Derp have been on sale a bajillion times already.

Also I'm bitter GMG ran out of Alpha BROtocol keys.


I actually did not get a beta invite yet. Does the (nominal) stuff that comes with the early access starter pack also come if I just eventually end up getting a beta invite?

OK, so what's with two (yes, 2) Toys R Us threads being stickied at the top of the "Video Game Deal" forum, and the Steam Thread not?? Those 2 threads together only get 19,679 views, while this one thread gets 351,669 and that's damn near just 2 weeks after having started (V6 roll-over) and with one of the biggest sales of the year currently going specific to that thread. wtf? What determines which threads get stickied?


Now, they've added Best Buy too. wth?

Yeah, it was 50% off before, weird that they are doing it for 75% off now, maybe it sold like dogshit at 50% off? I don't remember what the top seller list looked like when it was up.

Hmm 50% off for useless virtual crap or 75% off for useless virtual crap?

How about 100% off for useless virtual crap and then we'll talk.

Probably the economist told them it wasn't selling at 50 off.

The only thing I'm hoping for is that Killing Floor goes back on 75% off and the DLC stays at 75% so I can finally buy the last few ones I need.

I highly doubt that it's going to happen.

Now, they've added Best Buy too. wth?

Looks like it's some sort of sponsored / paid sticky.

I'm sure they dropped it to 75% because no one was buying it at 50% of course it's a nice slap in the face to those who were stupid enough to buy it at 50% off... or to pay at all.

Nop, but the items are not worth anything at all. They are merely cosmetic and I believe most of them can be got for free just by playing.

If you want a beta invite, throw me a pm with your steam id ;)

You know, it just occurred to me that the Sonic franchise pack made a return as a flash deal the other day and it was glitched
Spoiler
for the entire run as a flash deal. They either were unable to fix it, or they didn't notice.

It's just possible that they wont fix the Quake discount either.

They just don't care. Too busy selling copies of the Far Cry franchise to people who can't add.

I mean... I held out hope that they would start putting in some new games the next few days but I don't see it. My guess is the next five or so days are just going to be games that have already been put up for sale. I'm thinking they've cycled through everything by now but I'm sure that's not the case so you'll see stuff like... Gianna Sisters as a daily and uh... KOTOR as a flash, etc. Probably also have dailies for Snapshot and Closure, too.


You're probably right, but there are a few things I haven't seen yet that I had expected:
Risen (1&2)
Gothic/Arcania
Heroes of Might & Magic

Anything else?

Workin on it

Fallout games haven't appeared yet. We might also see a return of Dragon Age as a daily. Possibly even Crusader Kings.

Couple of questions: Is Endless Space worth it?

Are there any other games like FTL on steam? I am so angry at this game but I can't stop playing it...

And how do people keep getting DOTA2 invites? I can't decide if I'm jealous or relieved I've never gotten one.

+1

And also maybe addictive?
My most addictive games on steam for me personally are Terraria, New Vegas (mods omg), Civ 5, Skyrim, and Sims 3. I love time sinks. Especially ones that cost me 5$.

Appears to be a hidden flash sale on Frozen Synapse for 80 percent off. Given the last glitch that means there are likely two other glitches somewhere.

This just happened to me too. No idea how, and I was the one who was just wondering about the Dota 2 beta keys.

Thanks. Just bought the Red DLC. I wish I had caught the 90% glitch during the Summer sale. But I wasn't gonna pass up 80% again.

I have noticed that this happened to me. Seeing as how I am not an avid PC gamer who does not know what DOTA 2 is I am not too concerned.

That is because everyone on steam owns Dota 2 spectator client, that has the same appid of the game, so it says you have when you really dont.

Quick catch up skim and didn't see anyone else mention it, so a quick PSA for the Need For Speed Flash sale: Shift 2 is also 75% off, I mention this because I got burned on the Summer sale buying Shift 1 because they didn't include Shift 2 with the rest of the NFS titles on the sale screen even though it is part of the flash sale. So yeah, if you are considering it NFS: Shift, just get Shift 2 Unleashed for the same price.

Also Hot Pursuit is actually a lot more fun than I expected it to be. Think of it as Burnout 4 or 5 or whatever number it left off with before going all sandboxy with Paradise and I think you'll have a good time with it. Well worth the $5 in my opinion.

Shift 2 is entertaining and a reasonably well done "sim" racer, but if you have a console and access to Forza 4 or Gran Turismo 5, it's pretty unnecessary in comparison. If you're PC only though, could do a lot worse than $5 for it.

Even better....Doom Rails is current showing as a daily for today at $0.74 with 36 hours left. Means it will most likely actually be one of the Daily Deal for tomorrow :lol:
