A select number of the most sought-after titles from the Steam Holiday Sale will reprise their biggest discounts for two additional days. The Encore Weekend begins at 10am PST on January 5th (Saturday) and runs until 10am PST on January 7th (Monday).

It's 80 percent off. If a game is 75 percent off and over a decade old, you can generally just view it as a two week long daily deal.

For anyone looking for Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition it is 75% off at gamersgate today.


Just the regular version is 75% off. The Ultimate Edition looks like only 20% off.

Not much to the "complete edition" though. The only DLC to ever come out for the game was a costume/weapon pack that cost like $2.


The complete edition comes with the first game as well.

So essentially they'll be rerunning the same sales they've been running over and over during the last two weeks?

I guess that's good if you missed the one-off flash deals.

Yep, thanks. Uh, actually, they have some games on that list with metacritic scores as low as 35. Hidden gems?

So that means a weekend of repeats, huh? Maybe I'll get another crack at the Dead Space bundle. I'm assuming Recettear won't be a "most sought-after title".

Having just met and heard Chris Huelsbeck talk about the music for Giana Sisters (and his career in general) throwing the game my vote (despite already owning it) because he's awesome and more people should be aware that he's awesome. Told me he hopes that one day Turrican can get rebooted in much the same way Giana Sisters has and that would be pretty sweet. So yeah, a vote for Giana Sisters could maybe also be a vote for Turrican in a certain round about stretchy sort of way.

Was I the only person to be a bit dissapointed with the Crysis sale? When I saw Crysis Franchise -75% $9.99 I thought "oh yeah, Ill bite at $10 for the series" only to find out that's just for crysis 2.

That explains the 48 hour timer for today's deals then so hopes of new deals are dashed. Thanks for that information!

Everyone asking for what was on sale previously should take a look at KaOTiK's generous Anandtech thread.


Thanks for this. Doesn't look like I missed anything I really wanted. Only picked up the DoW Franchise pack.

Still waiting for Freedom Pack to be 75% off.

I wonder if all the other games that are not encores will remain discounted until the 7th as well.

Total tally:

Sine Mora
Far Cry 3
L.A. Noire
FTL
Borderlands 2 Season Pass
Castle Crashers
Hotline Miami
Scribblenauts Unlimited
CS: GO
Rage
Dishonored

sale was a bit underwhelming, since I got half of the games outside of Steam, but satisfied.

Indeed, thanks for the link. I picked up Silverfall Gold and Ignite and added Defender's Quest to wishlist in case it drops to 75% off.

Still on the fence about Runespell Overture and Elven Legacy pack.

I certainly hope so. My theory is this sale was an experiment to gather data hoping it would work. Hopefully the sales were lower and the experiment is considered a failure so they go back to better sales.

To me, it seems clear that they had this planned -- which explains the sale not being scheduled to run through the weekend.

I just updated Enhanced Steam to version 1.1, which adds the long-worked-on options page to the extension, where you can set which colors you want for highlighting games, as well as enabling / disabling the "Total spent" tally on your account page.

The settings use the Google Chrome Storage Sync API, so if you have multiple browsers signed in at multiple locations, your preferences should sync to all of your clients.

Now to add more features! :)

I just tried installing this for the first time and after clicking the "add to chrome." (and clicking okay) The yellow warning banner says "Manifest File is Invalid" [okay].

Edit: worked on the 4th try. Maybe I tried installing before the files propagated fully.

Edit2: Looking good =)

Okay good to know it's working now. Chrome can sometimes be a little wonky with it's webstore, sometimes just shutting the browser down completely and opening it back up works. :D

It's a great game. I'd easily recommend it. CAG Duty: it's been cheaper on GMG. (I paid $13.60 in Nov, it was much cheaper recently). I still think it's well worth it at the current price.


Thanks for the info. I would rather pay a few bucks more and use my steam credit then wait and use gmg or another site to get 3 dollars of and have to pay cash.

Now to add an updated version of the Greasemonkey script* =[

Nah, just kidding. Damn those limitations. =/

I'll never switch over to Chrome, though. I can't stand it.
