Steam Holiday Sale


Recommended Posts

I see you guys are hoping Valve considers "through January 2nd" to mean that the last sale day starts January 2nd.

I will warn you, Valve can count that in either direction. "Through Sunday" almost always means through 10am PST Sunday.

They are usually better when they name specific days, but don't be surprised if they opt not to.

Their Black Friday sale began its last day on the final mentioned date.

Not that I had anything else on my list to buy, and have certainly bought enough already, I am a little surprised that there was no final epic EVERYTHING IS BACK day. Then again, just about everything has been brought back once already, so it's more just a "oh... that's it then huh?" kind of feeling.

Final tally for me:

Deus Ex Collection

Half-Life: Source (should have waited to get this yesterday I guess, thankfully it was only a difference of $3.00 versus the 50% I bought it for and the 85% I could have gotten it for yesterday)

Civilization V (gifted to my brother)

F.E.A.R. Complete Pack

Crysis Complete

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Shatter

Half-Life 1 Anthology (never played the expansions and they were 74 cents each, hard to say no to)

Between all these and the additions of any of the Humble Indie Bundle (1&2) games that I didn't already have to my Steam list, my library has grown considerably in the last month. Now, to actually play some of these games....

Does anyone have the PC port of Dead Space and have anything to say about its quality? I kind of want to get it but I've heard some really bad/mediocre things about it.

My tally:

Super Meat Boy

VVVVV

Machinarium

Far Cry 2 (Bought it thinking it was Uncharted; not sure why)

I still have STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl from last year. Is this game good? I remember trying to play it, it crashed immediately, and I forgot all about it.

I own it, but it's still on my "To Play" list.

Anyway, my final tally is:

Super Meat Boy

The OddBox

Puzzle Quest

The Sherlock Holmes Collection

Blue Toad Murder Files

Global Agenda

I thought about getting Amnesia, but having played Penumbra Overture and not really finding it that fun, I decided to pass on it.

I got Killing Floor in the previous sale, but you should buy it if you play computer FPS games, so you can join us with our two OCR KF servers!

FFTA's AI was really bad. I had an Archer attack my character with 'Block Arrows' which gives a 100% to block any arrow attacks. It did it again the next turn.

There was also a battle where you could hit the lvl cap without much effort. Just took some time.

But I still think FFTA is good overall. Better than FFXIII.
