This is how bad the sale is... we're desperately digging for shitty cheap games...

Maybe Gabe knows the end of the world is tomorrow so why have good sales.


What? He's gonna take it all with him?

Oh that's disappointing. I don't have the base game so I didn't know the purchase was bugged.


Oh I just realized that it's negative one cent. I didn't notice that before. I thought it was a penny.

That's why I can't buy. If it were a penny, it probably would be for sale. But if something falls into negative price territory, the "add to cart" button automatically gets removed.

Can someone explain to me the Darksiders pack pricing? Darksiders 2 is $25, but the franchise pack is $20. Am I missing something here?

Also, anyone have any idea if it's likely to go lower, or should I just ponder the Amazon franchise pack for $13.19?


It's possible it'll be part of a flash sale or daily deal. General rule of the Steam sales is to wait until the end of the sale to buy something that isn't a flash/daily deal.

In this case, you could always wait until tomorrow to see if Darksiders gets marked down more, but the Amazon deal is really good, and I'm sort of doubting Steam will go lower.

Totally getting Ghost Master for $0.74 :)


Be aware that the game does not run on some more recent systems without some tweaking. (I can't remember how much is needed to be done, but I know I just gave up on it when I couldn't get it to work.)

So as for the holiday sale badge...

Anyone buying anything want to update us on how some of these achievements work? Namely:

Does The Holiday Spirit achievement (buy a gift) work if you store the game in your inventory? Because if so that's one way the uncharitable among us can get on this (or if you just don't want to send out the gift until Christmas day)

Does It Pays for Itself (buy any discounted item) work whether you're buying a gift or for yourself?


Confirmed:

I just purchased a 75-cent DLC as a gift for my inventory.

I obtained both the "Holiday Spirit" and the "It Pays for Itself" achievements.

Also, Machinarium is a pretty darn charming game, I recommend it, yes, it's been in bundles before, but if you don't have it....

75% off @ $2.49 worth every penny.

Does anyone think Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will be more than 33% off? This is probably the game I want more than anything besides The Witcher 2 which is currently %60 off.

DS surely will be at least 50% off as daily.

It's also on Amazon -- not sure if it's Steamworks, though. Maybe Tony could price match.

I'm hoping Kotor 2 will go on sale again since I missed it in the thanksgiving sale.


You and me both. I missed both KOTORs for that cheap price.

*blinks* go buy it from amazon

It's on the front page and the top of the deals page.
"Just a heads up: we're gonna have a superconductor turned up full blast and pointed at you for the duration of this next test. I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

Prison Tycoon 3 is only $2.49.

You must buy it.



I'll probably just buy the pack. It's the only way to get Prison Tycoon 4: Supermax now. :-P

Drakensang River of Time 75%

Looks like a cool RPG.

We should probably help gift it to all the poor Europeans who want it and can't get it because it's not available in their region and Steam made the publisher go to Greenlight with it instead of, you know, letting a game in that's already on their store anyway.

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

Beat Hazard is 70% off @ $2.99, I am sure it's been lower, but a nice way to enjoy your own music I find.

I have a bunch of keys for this game that I can't even sell for $1.50, and the keys include Ultra DLC. It is a good arena shmup like Geometry Wars with a lot of techno songs and the ability to play any song you want.

You have a right, some of these deals are laughable. I can go to Gamefly to get La Noire complete edition for half the price Steam has it for right now with the sale.

The Darksiders 2 "deal" is the funniest one.

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.


Endless Space is fantastic if you like games like Master of Orion.

Recettear is a quaint silly Japanese style RPG/store sim.

Naval Warfare is 80% off ($0.99)

I hadn't heard of this. Looks like the guns have free aim. Kinda cool.

For $2.49

Anybody play Hardboiled Chicken? Funny characters, but the Nukem voice isn't so endearing. And both have LOCAL CO-OP! My favorite!

I really want to get Scribblenauts for my daughter but it always seems like Steam tries to get you to buy high and then lowers the price further at some point during the sale.

Man, I can't seem to remember my Steam password. It seems that the only way to reset your password is through the Steam client, but I'm at work right now. Let's hope I don't miss anything I really want...

Definitely! Those packs were awesome. 5 games for $5 is a much better value than the current 30 games for $70. That's why I own Recettear, actually; it was in an RPG indie pack for only $1. Also, the mega pack group buys were excellent, 10 copies of a game for $7.50. I don't see why Valve hasn't done either promo since 2010.

If it's one of the featured daily deals, the price won't go lower.

If it was on a flash sale, there is the chance it becomes a daily deal at some point in the sale is will go lower.

What I'm saying is Scribblenauts isn't going to go any lower this sale.

Would you be willing to trade for Legend of Grimrock key?
