Deal Details

It's here! Are your wallets ready for the abuse? Here's hoping there are great deals to be had here. I'll update this thread with sales and deals.

Click here for sale's frontpage: http://store.steampowered.com/

Quick primer for the newcomers:

  • Daily Deals: Each day, new daily deals appear at 10AM PST and expires the next day at 10PM
  • Flash Deals: At any given time, there will be 4 deals that won't last long (several hours). When one expires, another replaces it.
  • Community Vote Deals: You get to vote on what the next deal is. Every 8 hours.
  • Deals spanning the entire event: Various games and bundles are on sale for the entire sale, however play it smart and only buy a game if it's a daily deal (when the price is lower). Resort to buying what doesn't go on sale as a daily deal at the end of the sale.
Steam Sale Commandments:
  • Thou shalt not purchase any individual title unless it is a daily/flash/community deal. Wait until the end to buy otherwise.
  • Thou shalt not hesitate to jump on too-good-to-be-true deals as there have been price mistakes in the past sales. Price mistakes are honored.
  • Thou shalt not hesitate to dip into the kids' college funds to buy these games
  • Thou shalt live off of ramen until the end of the sale
====Current Deals====
Remember, never buy a game unless it's a daily/flash/community deal. If it never shows up as a daily/flash/community deal, go ahead and buy it on sale at the last minute.

7/22 Daily Deals (ends 10PM 7/23):
Flash Deals:
When a flash deal ends, another begins...
Community Vote Deal:
A new poll and deal every 8 hours...

====Event-wide Deals (July 12th - 23rd)====
I cannot express this enough: only buy games if it is a daily/flash/community deal. Resort to purchasing on-sale games at the last minute if it never appears as a daily deal.

Individual Titles:
A subjective listing of some cheap/good games that I believe are already at their lowest. Might as well buy these whenever. Please do your own research first before buying!

I bought Defense Grid and all the DLC full price a few months ago. $20 total. Yesterday, that same bundle was $3.99. I wasn't even mad.

How do you guys figure the $50 bundles are not slick? Some of them are incredible deals.
Technically you correct, but at this point, my backlog is so huge and a lot of the games have gone on sale for <$5 or will soon that getting a $50 bundle would be pointless for me. I don't think I'm an exception.

Is the daily deal price the best it will get? Might and Magic VI is daily deal but only 50% off- any chance it would end up at 75% off?

Nope, 50% will be the lowest. I've never seen a daily deal go cheaper afterwards.

It was $6 about two months ago. They have it for $7 right now and it's absolutely worth every penny. One of my favorite games of the last year.

Just a heads up: The Amazon rep over on the CheapAssGamer Forums has said that if Saint's Row The Third wins the flash deal voting, Amazon will beat Steam's price. I'm guessing it'll be $10 vs. Steam's $12.50.
thats actually the game i voted for to lol, Amazon more than likely will beat it to

I have 19 hours into that game total and some of it was because friends were playing with me online, its just another expansion pack onto the previous ones. Black ops 2 may actually change the game a little but idk if its worth it, certainly not $40+. I got arma 2 free and played 40 hours on that and 31 hours on tribes ascend just this month. MW3 has been out for what nearly a year and i only played 19 hours? Not worth it...

I'm waiting for a deal on arma 2 CO and probably nothing else.
Yeah I enjoyed MW2 and not so much BF3 (controls on PS3 sucked imo). I'm a sucker for mindless shooters, I've logged like 100 hrs into TF2, probably more, and I'm itching for a new shooter.

I have Arma2 CO, I may just play that.

Is Portal 2 a good deal at $5 Or is there going to be a better deal such as Portal 1 +2 for $5?

Edit: If I had just scrolled down a little bit.. Both games are for $6.24

Also, I see the valve complete pack but no details on it.
The Orange Box (Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Team Fortress 2 and Portal 1) is only $9.99. I thought it was a pretty good deal to get The Orange Box and Portal 2 for $15.

Any comments on the http://store.steampowered.com/sub/15326 bundle? it appears to have a load of titles that seem perfect for my 7 year old. He likes big fish type games and getting this many titles for $50 for him to play with would be great. Those games aren't all utter crap right? trying to look them all up on amazon for reviews lol.
