What was it at first? I already own all the games so I didn't pay too close attention to it.


$31.34

I might buy them separately, I don't want the last one.

The new layout is a little hard to get used to.

Any idea when the flash sales end? Sale itself appears to end Jan. 5th, so we have a while :)

Hmm . . . almost everything on my wishlist dropped to -50% off immediately, but I'll hold out for flash sales/further drops. I really want to grab Half-Life Complete and The Oddboxx at -75% off if possible.

Edit: E.Y.E Divine Cybermancy is $2.49(-75% off) again. I missed it last time so I'll grab it now I guess.

Wow ... usually I check my wishlist for odd games the first day of the sale and see a bunch of 50% off with some 75% off thrown in. Looking at it this time around I am seeing mostly 25% 35% 40% with some 50% thrown in for the most part.

Does anyone have any opinions on Recettear or Endless Space? Maybe I just haven't been paying too much attention to indie games, but FTL has certainly got me a lot more interested in them.

Posted 20 December 2012 - 06:13 PM

Sadly, nothing on my wishlist (about 20 games) is 75% off. The closest is Wanderlust at 65%


Hah, you too? That's the highest thing on my wishlist as well.

Oh wait, I guess I have Botunicula at 75%.

Might explain why we only get 6 daily deals, maybe they're trying to lower the number of repeats.

It's so weird to look at an end of the year sale like this and see so many games more expensive than when I bought them a few months ago. The Bio-Shocks are 10 bucks, Left 4 Deads are 10 bucks etc. I dunno, weird.

Color me unimpressed. Not that I'm looking for much, but nothing on my miniscule wishlist is better than 50% off thus far. Let's see what the next 10 hours brings...

They must be trying to compensate for how awesome last year's sale was with free games. This year is horrible. Most things are more expensive than they were at Thanksgiving.

There's a new holiday badge! Most of it is the same as last year, but there's a new mobile client activation requirement. How are people without steam-capable phones going to get their badges?


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

Well Hitman and probably The Secret World will be Amazon purchases. Perhaps I should buy Borderlands 2 when the eventual GOTY release comes out.

Ah thanks. Oooh, it's going to be easy. Participate in 5/15 votes? Sure, will do. Buy a gift? Okay. Buy something discounted? Man, I wasn't planning on it, but I guess, if that's how I'll get my badge. ;)

The only things that were 75% off were items I already owned but forgot to update lol

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

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.
