It might be like the other sales. After a day they get knocked down the list as a "last chance" for another day. So in about an hour. I reckon we'll see new deals and a new "last chance" box appear.

The new deals refresh at 1:00PM EST. The last days deals stay active for an extra 24 hours, so at 1PM today new deals will be featured, but the old one's will still be available for another day.

I had to End Process as it lagged it so bad. Great idea, awful execution. Do not load the entire damn database on one page. And if it turns out they were not (I never did get to see it in action) then it is horribly coded. Really good idea for a site, as I said, horrible execution.

Fine on my ipad...

All the recently added Legacy of Kain series games are down to ?3.49 each. I bought all 3 :D

I'm skipping this sale. I realised the other day that of all the games I've bought in steam sales over the past couple of years, I've only played about 30% of them. So I'm currently banning myself from buying any games until I've played most of the games I've bought in previous sales. By then the next Steam sale will be only weeks away, and the games I'm looking at today (Hitman mainly) will probably be in the sale again. :)

Here's an interesting quirk:

  • STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl - ?4.99
  • STALKER: Call of Pripyat - ?3.24
  • STALKER Bundle (containing both games) - ?11.49

Lulwut?

Same here. I was thinking about Borderlands 2 at 50% off but i'll never get around to it any time soon. Hopefully by Summer or even next Christmas it will be 75% off.

Have not bought anything on steam yet but I got Max Payne 3 on Amazon. I don't see Steam beating $15. Thinking about getting Hitman as well.

I'm surprised that I haven't found anything worth getting so far, normally there's at least a few games I'd want.

Same here. But I actually bought a few during the Thanksgiving sale. I see Origin has Mass Effect 3 for $15, that will probably be my only purchase this holiday.

I actually just bought Psychonauts on a whim so that invalidates my previous statement.

A lot of these sales are repeats. That is fine, it gives others a chance to grab stuff they may have missed out on last time.

Got Blood Bowl and the Space Sandbox. Looked at the Tom Clancy pack and noticed the games are cheaper if you buy each separate then as a package.

hahaha and here we are again! So far only FEAR 3, wanna play it on my redone PC...hope to buy at least 3-4 more games by the time it's done. Wanted Darksiders 2, but it was still too pricey. Love the Steam sales though, always amazing!

I've only picked up a couple of games so far because I wanted to have them on Steam. Everyone else seems to have better prices than Valve this year. Just hoping for a 50% off or so on The Secret World. I passed on the Amazon deal because I'd like to have it in Steam. Maybe that was a mistake.

Past sales i've been picking up big titles on the cheap. Now i've got most of the top titles this year (i want xcom). I'm gradually buying cheaper and cheaper games.

I just paid ?3.49 for Ace of Spades.

never going to play it

I've noticed this a few times (see my post about the STALKER bundle a few pages back). It's pretty stupid :p
