I am not listing how much money I pissed away on this sale.

But so far I snagged
Hitman Absolution
Magic: The Gathering 2013 | Planeswalkers 2013 Expansion | Deck Pack 1 | Deck Pack 2
AirMech Steam Starter Pack
Dishonored
Darksiders Franchise Pack
Legacy of Kain Collection
Supreme Commander Gold Edition
Spec Ops: The Line
Little Inferno

And I'm planning on grabbing Indie Mega pack.

God knows what else I will find that will be bought :picard:

Was there a Spec Ops deal already? Other than the 50% during the whole sale?

Edit: No, there wasn't.

http://www.cheapshark.com/browse.php?storeID=0 If you click on the "i" button that appears when you hover over the titles, you can see the cheapest prices in the past and their dates. If the current one isn't the cheapest price, chances are good that the game will pop up in a daily sale or flash sale.

Also, general rule: Don't buy unless one of three conditions apply.

1. It's a flash sale.
2. It's a daily deal.
3. It's the last day of the Christmas Sale.

If either of those three apply it's 99.9999% certain it won't get any cheaper this sale. If you buy something that's now 50% off, applicable during the whole sale, and it then pops up for 75%, or even 90% off, you're gonna kick yourself. That won't happen if you disregard anything but dailys, flashes or deals on the last day (Jan 5th.).

Note, The Walking dead still going for 12 bucks...

I bought Spec ops because I honestly don't think it's going to go on Sale, it's only chance is going to be a voted Flash sale, and I think it's going to get outvoted in favour of something else. I've only got the next couple of days off and then back to work heavy after Christmas, so I'd rather buy it now with 50% off and have a chance to play it then to wait to get a great deal and not get to play it for a long time.

It's really not light playing so It won't do well for an evening unwinding game session. :P

Still a bit too much for me for a couple of hours of storytelling and point-and-click. I'm trying to stick to only spending what I have in my steam wallet now and that's enough for Mark of the Ninja and Spec Ops (which I will buy whatever happens) and a couple of other things that might tickle my fancy, but might run out too fast if I go for TWD. :ask: Then again, I might just go and load another 20€ into the wallet. Just to be su... NO! BAD BLOB! YOU SWORE AN OATH!

Then again, Chivalry is also 11,49€ right now. 20€ would cover those two... NO! VERY BAD BLOB!

True enough. I am very certain it will go down further, since it has already been 75% off some two weeks ago, but I can understand your reasoning. Me, I have a backlog of some 30 games now anyway (can't seem to fit much between that pesky RL and Mount&Blade), so I can deal with waiting a couple more days for it to go down to 5€, or until another sill if it won't.

Mark of the Ninja, though. That shit is mine on January 5th at the latest, whatever the fuck happens.
I also heard that Lone Survivor is really awesome and one of the best horror games since ever, not counting Amnesia. Amnesia fucking terrified me so much that I couldn't finish it, though. I'm probably not suited for the horror genre, especially if it's interactive, but then I sure would like to play a game that gets such high praise.

Well, I've only played about twenty minutes of it so far, seems fun though. I'll let you know when I get a bit farther in, although that may take a while. I have like...15 games to play.

Huh. Spec Ops is on a flash sale at 66% off right now. It has been 75% off a month ago, though. Should I sit through this and see if it goes down further this sale?

I mean, even if I don't buy it today, it's likely to come up again until the end of the sale at 66% at least, I guess. :ask:

50% flash sale for Hitman Borderlands and Dishonored? I got them on the daily deals it was same reduction. At least I didn't get screwed there. :P

BY the way. HOLY CRAP ANNO 20170 is Awesome.... I'm still on the main screen haven't played yet... It's dazzling me...

By the way... Who trusts an AI that says "You can trust me Implicitly" Fuck it I distrust anyone who says that.

Yeah, I guess I will. Still, seems strange to me to have it 75% off a month ago and revert back to 66% now.
