If the leaked email about the sale is to be believed, it will be entirely a rehash.

 

I have my doubts about the veracity of that email, however.

 

It says that "duration discounts" will be the same during both sales, but doesn't say this about daily/flash/community(?) discounts.


Selling Indie Gala bundles.

Wow. NONE of the Namco Bandai discounts they announced would go live today on Steam showed up. Bloody hell. Someone fucked it up.

 

The dates on the email matched the actual dates on this sale so it looks like it was legit all along.

 

What to do, what to do... buy FF7 on PC so I can sell my PS1 copy and get 25 bucks...?

yes

It also seems smart to leak the dates to build hype, and throw some weird verbiage about sale prices staying the same out to get people to buy things in the Fall sale rather than waiting for the Winter sale. I think the email is legit. I'm just unsure if it was telling the truth. And like Detruire said, it might just be talking about duration sales.

I think the Namco sale is only on their own website.

Their Facebook page linked to the Steam pages, not their website, though.

 

Edit: And those jerks! They have Star Trek for sale for $5 at 75% off, when the MSRP on Steam is $15! )@#$&@#$@#&$#@

I have a worthless degree in advertising. I'd gamble the email wasn't proactively leaked, but that the Valve dudes wrote the email under the wise assumption that, through word of mouth, the Fall sales would be said to be "just as good" as Winter.
I like cheese.

I enjoyed it.  That said this is usually bundled with other stuff on Amazon and I'd wager a prime candidate for the Humble Squeenix Bundle.

On the other hand, everything is potentially a future bundle. $2 is probably as good as it's going to get without bundling, and it's a fun game to boot.

Contemplating buying Brutal again, because I sold all the cards but now I want the badge.  Probably cheaper getting a fresh set than going to the market.

I'm shocked at my self control this year. i've wanted Far Cry 3 for $7.50, Sniper Elite 2 Bundle for $10 (Amazon) or $12 (Gamersgate, including the original game), Megabyte Punch for $5 on Steam, and PAC-Man DX+ for $2.50 from GameStop.

Every time I think about picking one up, I think about my pile of shame, and how I probably won't even play any of these games for years. It's not like these won't be on sale again, right?

And on the mutated gene third hand is that there's a 99% chance it'll be $2 again during the Holiday sale so might as well wait and see.  :bouncy:

I passed on tomb of adventurer last sale, but 59 cents is cheap as hell. Might pick that up this time.

 

There are also single player outfits. Some were preorder bonuses and some were just released as DLC. At 19 cents each I might grab those.

 

Which ones are SP? I was under the impression they were all Multiplayer exclusive.

Tomb of the Lost Adventurer = sp tomb

Demolition, Mountaineer, Sure-Shot, Hunter, Aviatrix, Guerilla = sp skins

Animal Instinct, Headshot Reticule, Agility Skill, Pistol Burst, Pistol Silencer = early unlocks

 

All the rest is multiplayer

Or the flip-side, and the Winter sale is considered just as bad as the Autumn one.


Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Thanks Hal, I see you have a time of 1:56:65 in the Intel Grid 2 thing. The sweet spot for "fastest" times seem to be 2:46:00 to 2:47:00. Their sorting code is jacked up, and you have to make 5 mistakes to inflate your time on each picture finding setup (assuming 3 times) to force that time.Good Luck.

Actually it's a lot more lenient than that. I got 3:21 today and won another key. I wasn't even trying, my browser screwed up which increased my time. So you could win a key if your time is past 3 minutes.

Just as an FYI, Tony confirmed that the Amazon $5 EC coupons won't be usable until January 4th -- AFTER the Steam sale ends.

Anybody Else getting the "You've already played today" on the Grid 2 Giveaway? I haven't played in over a week, got my hopes up that I won, checked email and cried a little on the inside.  Not sure what's going on.
