That Steam score site is awesome, Steam needs something like this. Without any sort of ranking or score level like the consoles have, I don't find Steam achievements worthwhile and just ignore them completely. Not that console trophies are worthwhile, but at least there is some level of motivation to go after them, for me.

So what are you guys going to try to get during the sale?



Pretty small list for me and all dependent on price:

Deathspanks 1&2 (these have yet to hit 75% off in two years)
Rune Classic
Alpha Protocol (Should have grabbed this years ago when they had a $2 sale)
Dead Rising 2 OTR

Stuff that probably won't hit discounts I want:

Amalur (won't go on sale)
Fallen Enchantress
Chivalry

Stuff I'll probably get from Amazon for the right price:

XCom
Dark Souls
Defenders of Ardania
Warlock DLC
Hell Yeah

Stuff I might get from Amazon but will probably wait it out even longer:

Sleeping Dogs
Darksiders 2
Max Payne 3

There's about a dozen or so indie games I'm interested but I'll just wait on bundles.

I think if Trails in the Sky got released on steam it'd be the only game i'd buy day one for. I have the PSP LE version and I've beat it twice love that game! <3


I feel I would be the in same situation as you if Trails in the Sky showed up on Steam. :D

A rude tag isn't right, now a vulgar tag would be spot on, especially once the sale gets in full swing.

Well I suppose it's good that we won't have all the seasonal CAGs soiling the venerable V5 thread. I'd welcome the new one, but I know that in a few days it's going to be flooded with noobs.

http://www.thebrokepcgamer.com/ interesting, it seems to be hand updated.

There's another that I tend to glance at, http://www.cheapshark.com/ it's a script. I always but in the steam client or a Chrome incognito window, so no one inadvertently gets referrer profits.

That reminds me, I was thinking of swapping out my sig for a mini-FAQ.

]Yes and no.

Most of the store goes on sale so if you are relatively new to Steam then there are a lot of deals to be had.

[/SPOILER]However if you are old and crusty and have been around the virtual block hundreds of times and have nearly every game you could possibly want, and a bunch more that you never wanted in the first place, then you just sit around and complain about how terrible the sale is, that there are just no good deals on sale and that it just isn't like the good old days, where old in this case means a year or so ago.



You forgot the bit on how we walking up the hill, both ways, in the snow to the sales. It sucked, but back then sales were SALES, not the watered down koolaide shit that kids drink today.

So what are you guys going to try to get during the sale?

for me
Super id software Pack
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion GOTY
Ys Origin
Sonic Adventure DX
Terraria
Garry's Mod
The Binding of Isaac
Dungeons of Dredmor
Trine 1&2
Deus Ex GOTY
Fallout Collection
Mount & Blade Collection


and possibly (depending on prices)
Torchlight II
NIGHTS into Dreams
Sonic Adventure 2
Orc's Must Die 2
Civilization IV GOTY



I was going to comment, "Dude what rock have you been under!" But then I realized that you must be Rip-Van-CAG.

Heck. I can't name one game that I expect to pickup at the right price on the Winter Sale.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Skyrim DLC, that's it

I went nuts during the Steam/Amazon BF sales . . . and I am actually playing games!

I have most of what I care about, I'm just going to be looking for deals that are too good to pass up. Deadlight is about the only specific title I'd like, and maybe Amazing Spider-Man if it's real cheap. Skyrim DLC as well, for the right price.

Deadlight is a great idea in a visually amazing world that fails to execute on some simple mechanics. Oh and the ending is dumb.

I pretty much started buying games for Steam starting from the Humble Bundle 5 and for whatever reason during the summer sale after a few purchases Steam wouldn't except my card for whatever reason. So i'm finally starting to catch up and to not have to deal with the credit card ordreal i'm buying $100 in Steam cards can't wait! :)

hmm I had the first post here and it was deleted


That's because you posted it before I was done creating the first three posts (and the first post did say "Do not post in this thread before I say it's ready" in large letters at the top). So we had to axe it. Appreciate your enthusiasm though!

Looks cool in videos, I would get it for under $5 probably.

Yeah, I'm sitting here going 'Okay what the hell do I not have yet?' I mean I have the entire friggin Nancy Drew collection and Flora's Fruit Farm. I'm not sure how much more obscure or niche I could get on Steam.

Hmm, come to think of it I do want that Valusoft Simulation pack if it goes on a good sale because it has two of the 18 Wheels of Steel games which I don't have yet. It's also currently the only way to get Prison Tycoon 4: Supermax, which sounds like it should be a gay porn.

Oh and there's some redneck huntin' games in it too.

Yes but that one does not redeem on Steam, only Origin.

The only way to get it on Steam is to buy it on Steam but now it will likely never go on sale again.

Blame Vermont.

What site? & I feel the same when I had XBL

Really looking for Chivalry to go on sale, just because it still seems popular and that's important for a MP only game. Just seems like a good time and most PC games have been a lackluster experience so far. followed by Dark Souls, Borderlands, GTA Series/Bully, and possibly anything else on my wishlist.

Just for the record, I enjoyed (as much as one could) all the previous CoD campaigns up to this point and Blops 2 was a boring crapfest even by MY standards.

It's so cute confusing you.
I am just fucking around, I usually drop codes when I do that but I'm saving for the sale.

On another note, I can't get that Steamscore site to accept my account; I've always had problems with sites like this.

You have to keep reloading. And each time it will process like 10-15 games then stop. Then refresh. Then it will keep counting down until you are done.

I've done that about 10-15 times. It will say adding one or seven or thirteen but my total stays the same. :cry:
