I'm hoping for cheap $5 skyrim, or fallout. Also landair battle seems interesting despite its name maybe the xcom expansion or some kind of zombie survival type game for under $10

I just want Guacamelee for ~$5 and Injustice for $15, but that one won't happen this sale.

With you on Guacamelee. :thumbsup:

There was something else too, but I can't remember what it is right now. :hmm:

Damn fun game, I picked it up on the PS3 since it is a cross buy game (can play it on PS3 and Vita) and is on sale for $3.75 :D

I"m hoping for some discount on Starbound, even a tiny one, I'm too cheap for MSRP.
I'll do a 4pack if others are interested in it as well if it does go on sale.

CoH2 and Magicka are on my radar. I'll probably hold off on CoH2 until the summer or so.

Should I jump on stanley parable? It's been on several games of the year lists, but I only heard of it recently.

Is Batman Origins worth it at 50%? I doubt it will hit 75%.

Looks like all the cards will be wiped on the last day, so you can't sell them after the sale, like you could with the summer sale cards. I planned on selling all of them the instant I get them, then buy them up for $.12 on the last days, but I wonder if they will fall so low, with them being wiped.

It feels like once you have a few years in of hitting the Steam sales that there is hardly anything you ever want during sales any more :( Takes the fun out if it every time the deals update and you see that you already have nearly everything listed.

It's a great game, but you can probably get it much cheaper buying a code on the BS/T of forums. There are tons of codes circulating with all the people getting the game for free with video card purchases. You can get a key for $10-$15 generally.

Anyone feeling a Starbound sale is possible? It just came out, but maybe a 10%?

I'll check for those Batman Origins codes, thanks.

That is what I am hoping for, even a slight discount on Starbound. My Steam wallet is my budget for this sale so it is one of just a few things I am going to be able to get grab.

Play the demo first, you will get a good feel for it. Personally, I love it, but I can see many people not liking it at all.

the main things i wanted from this sale was bioshock infinite season pass and arkham origins season pass both of which went on sale today. Only will lurk now and again to see if another game interests me because all games that was on my radar has already been purchased.

Is The Stanley Parable really as short as I've heard? 1-2 hours to finish it? I really want it, but if that length is accurate I don't think I could pay more than $5.

Baldurs Gate II Enhanced Edition......come to me for $5.

Other than that, I'm sure someone in this awesome thread will convince me to buy something that I won't get around to playing until July (or later) 2014.

That was only released 6 weeks ago. Can't see that being 75% off. I think 33% off is the best if will get

Oh if you haven't played Dishonored or Bioshock Infinite yet they are well worth the asking price today.

I'm surprised Infinite has seen so many deep sales. The game is amazing and was worth the full purchase price.

I dont know if the bioshock infinite season pass 75 percent off was a mistake but i got it for 5 bucks but now its not showing the sale price.
