This freaking sucks. I won't get my SS money until after the sale is over, so no games for me. Half the games I'm looking at are like super damn cheap (like $4 or $8 each) and other than Sleeping Dogs there wasn't a huge AAA title I wanted just smaller indie stuff, maybe an older game with a low price etc. But, like the last sale and the summer sale before that I miss out because my situation demands I not be able to do anything as usual money wise because, hey loser and ****.

But I hope you guys are getting some good stuff, pretty good deals on some games I must say. Especially on DLC this year it seems.

I hope you secured your socks.

Steam is running a reprise of their Holiday Sale (as the Steam Holiday Sale Encore).

I had absolutely no clue what was in the original sale - however, from what I saw *today* (the sale is currently running) - among the shocks is the entire current Crysis Collection (original, Warhead, and C2 Maximum Edition) for $19.99 (which is $10 less than C2 Maximum Edition by itself). (You can purchase either the original or C2 Maximum for $9,99 - Warhead is $4.99.)

I really need to find out when this sale croaks.

Should you be spending SS disability money on games anyway?

What else would I be spending it on, food? I already do that. That's all I use it for, the rest is rent. My birthday is at the end of this month, I wanted to get a few things I've been wanting for awhile. So I'll go without some potato chips or some other crap that's all. Nothing much else in my life, so gaming is all I have pretty much. Hence, the loser thing.

^ I think you'll dig Sleeping Dogs. I enjoyed it. TLII is also pretty sweet.

For those who did not play Witcher the first and second games can be bought for a total of 9.98 curently. Awesome deal if you ask me.

I agree. The Witcher games are brilliant.
In a time where developers are messing up RPG's. The Witcher and the sequel nail it.

I've been quite disappointed by the Steam sales this year. The games on offer have all been on offer before for similar prices/cheaper (especially on GreenManGaming), I haven't found myself buying very much this year but in every other sale I've been refraining from buying the publisher packs!

Do you think, maybe, that those other places have the games on sale because Steam puts them on sale?

I was disappointed Dirt 3 never seemed to go on sale, but other than that, I got just about every game I wanted (XCOM, Dark Souls, Max Payne 3) for dirt cheap on either Steam, Greenman, or Amazon.

Got Sleeping Dogs for £2.69...

The best deal in this whole sale I would say...

Really? Wow, I had definitely never thought of that before!

In every other Steam sale, Steam have had the games cheaper than elsewhere; not the case this time. Hence the disappointment.

Right, because other places had them on sale for even cheaper than Steam. I don't understand how people can be disappointed by this! Most of the other places were just selling Steam codes too... there was literally no difference except the price being lower.

Games that have been on sale on Steam during this winter sale have already been at the prices, and cheaper, than on Steam.

I don't remember them repeating the same games on sale though in previous sales, that annoyed me a little bit. I'm just used to Steam sales being crazy and whatnot but this one just hasn't been.

I didn't buy anything in this sale, as most of the packs I already bought in previous sales and there was little point for just one additional title
