    STEAM SALE GOLDEN RULE READ THIS FIRST
    Do not buy anything that is not a daily deal till the last day of the sale. The reason is said game could become a daily deal and be cheaper. Saving a buck or two like this equals another game in a sale like this. In *most* cases if a game is 75% off already it wont get cheaper though.

    Yes. The Autumn sale (or whatever they call it this year) will go through the 26th. I have no idea what if anything is planned outside of the normal dozen daily deals.

    No, and in a lot of cases they do require a bit of work. I do it as a way to give back to the community.

    At minimum it is a nice single location to discuss how much money we gave away to have more text in our Steam library.

    It's great to find a sweet deal on a game whether it be amazon, GMG, steam or gamefly. Strong preference for deals that activate on steam and your focus there is a great asset. I love to game on the cheap. Without doubt I am not the only Lurker in the community who appreciates your efforts. Keep up the good work! :thumbsup:

    Holy cow the first list is lame-tacular. AOE III was the only thing that struck any interest for me.

    BTW, Amazon is also having a Steam sale that started earlier. I love playing SS3. An expansion for the game was released last month for $10. I picked it up through Amazon for $2.49 ... PLUS a $5 credit towards an "editor's choice" game during January, 2013.

    Got to love it ...

    Yep.

    I was hoping for at least one major title I'd be interested in. Getting a new Alienware laptop today (got a super good deal on it), was hoping to waste more money!

    To be fair, had no idea the sale started today - was only going to look on Black Friday :)
