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!

$12.49 Grand Theft Auto Complete Pack

I'm really happy with all my purchases except for the tribes starter pack. I'm having some problems getting it to work.

I'm very happy with my haul from the steam sale.

AOE3 Complete
Bastion Soundtrack Ed.
Beyond Good & Evil
Burnout Paradise Ultimate Box
Costume Quest
Fallout 3 GOTY
Fallout NV Ultimate
Jade Empire Special Ed.
Mirror's Edge
Risen
Saints Row 3: Franchise Pack
Sonic Generations + DLC
Star Wars: Force Unleashed 2
Trine 2 Collector's Ed

Total: $102.08 or less than the MSRP of two "AAA" titles. I also got some other stuff as gifts for others. So in the context that I got 14 games that I'll definitely enjoy for the cost of two new releases, I think I got a very solid deal out of this sale. It's only going overboard if you spent more than you intended to. I spent basically the upward bound of what I figured I'd be spending.

My #1 rule is I never pay more than $10 for a single game, but that's because I am a cheap bastard...lol. The only thing I am nad about missing is Street Fighter 4 for $9.99.

What are the actual SlickDeals groups on Steam for trading? I did a search but many of the groups seem to have died awhile ago (looking for Frozen Synapse).

I am so pissed. I swore, I bought LA Noire for $5, but I never got a confirmation so apparently it didn't go through!! I went to go play it last night and it wasn't on my list. Kinda pissed off.

I got Civ 5 GOTY and BTTF. I'm very pleased with my restraint.

I was shooting to buy nothing, but I'm only human after all.

Probably would have been easier to list what you didn't buy, lol.

I got Driver San Francisco, two of the Prince of Persias, another copy of Terraria, Mirror's edge, and my buddy gave me a copy of Dunegon Defenders. Around $20 total I think.

Solid. Although KOTOR disappointed me. For some reason, the graphics are horrible on my machine (I loved the game on Xbox). Hopefully you have better luck. Maybe there is a graphics mod? I haven't looked into it.

Ok good, then it's not just me. That has happened to me in the past. I thought maybe I dreamed it or was going (more) crazy.

I did not buy LA Noire, but if your games aren't showing up make sure that you've exited steam and restarted it so that your library is refreshed with the servers. Also, I always print the order confirmation so if you have that, you can open a support ticket. Make sure you've restarted steam first though, as sometimes the simplest thing is the thing that gets you caught up. Smilie

Just under $30. Would have bought Torchlight II pre-order, but I know I won't get though 1 and 2 before Christmas, and I bet 2 will be on sale at Christmas.
