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!

Publisher Bundles:

My discirpine has been quite good so far...have only bought Mirror's Edge ($5) and a gift copy of Terraria ($2.50). I am eyeing Amnesia pretty hard right now, though.
Don't buy it, it was in the humble indie pack for cheaper. Also, it's really not that scary and pretty boring. But I'll leave it up to you. Mirror's Edge is a good game so I agree there.

Quote from Gigahertz21 :
Also that Valve Complete Pack is ridiculous, dozens of awesome games for hundreds of hours of entertainment for just $50....what a steal
Not a steal, you just overvalue interactive pixels.

Good job wasting money. 80% of your games are played 0.5 hours, did you enjoy those demos LOL?

The walking dead is talking about a "season pass" Is that included in this flash sale price or is that a different purchase?

I haven't seen anything that suggests that there will be separate pricing for the individual episodes. It sounds like regardless of where the game is purchased, you'll get the remaining episodes as they are released.

If I didn't have such a large backlog of games, I definitely would jump on this. It's been difficult to not pull the trigger each time the deal has popped up. If it pops up during the winter sale, I'll probably jump on it then, especially since it will be in the middle of the next season on AMC.

Yeah, same here.

Hoping SPAZ wins as well - it's a good game and I'd like a copy if possible. It has some issues, but it's definitely worth a few bucks in one of these sales.
does your heart hurt as much as mine? I actually stayed up till 1:30 am hoping to gett he game before going to sleep, but NOOOOO, teh walking dead had to win and go on sale AGAIN. This is the third or fourth time for pete's sake! (who Pete is, and why it's for his sake, i haven't a clue, but such is the saying..)
Gimme SPAZ or give me...sadness. bulb

Quote from clarkkent06 View Post :
Yeah it's because jackass EA is trying to get people on their own Origin platform, which is why a few new big name games aren't on Steam, such as Mass Effect 3 and Battlefield 3. They claim it's because some "Steam requirement" prevents them from doing it, but I think that's BS. I think EA pulled a few games from Steam previously, Crysis 1/2 (and I believe people who owned them just lost them). But they were recently added back.
Quote from maademperor View Post :
Damn EA. does that mean if I buy ME3 for PC from somewhere else, do I have to create an origin account/install that client? IF so I'll just forget it and be satisfied with the 360 version...

of course if they bring Madden back to PC I might forgive them and get it laugh out loud
Thanks for the info!

Just read up on this. That sucks. Lots of commentary out there. Did not want the game that badly anyway.

Huh! Portal 2 has a 2-pack! Man....well, if someone managed to buy the 2 pack, and didn't want their second copy, but did want some of their money back, i sure would love to help ammend such a situation. i'm at work, and buying things on my phone SUCKS, so it would sure be cool if i met someone in that situation...

Anyone think $9.99 is worth paying for New Vegas DLCs? I already have the copy of the regular game, and thinking of buying the Ultimate addition since for some bizzare reason it's cheaper then buying the DLCs seperately.

2 of the DLCs ($1.50 worth) are just extra items and equipment - might want to check if removing them brings the price down. Also, I don't think you can repurchase a game you already have on Steam, unfortunately, so it may stop you from doing that if you own NV on Steam.

Been wanting Spliknetr Cell for a while now and it is on the flash sale. Anyone played it and can chime in if the 6.24 price that includes some weapons and the infiltration mode is worth it?
