Remember, tomorrow (5th) is the day to check through all the stuff thats on sale on steam but not front page. I noticed a ton of stuff on my wishlist is on sale, lots for 50% or 75%, stuff that never got front page exposure for steam sales.
I suddenly got an urge to check end times for some of the non front page sales. Turn out they END on the morning of the 5th. Good thing I checked. I got a few more items that were under $5.

I dunno why steam would do that, rerun the front page stuff but not all the THOUSAND PLUS items that were on sale that weren't front page. They seriously had almost everything on sale.

And typical steam, they made it basically impossible to see all the sale items in a single list. I ended up sorting it to price and looking at everything under $5. That was already 30+ pages of stuff.

So the Encore sale just started... Some of the prices are messed up, like discounts not being applied when they should (0% off a lot of things). But also, one of yesterday's deals seems to have been erroneously enhanced: Sleeping Dogs for $4.50 (91% off). I've snatched up a couple copies for my inventory before they fix it!

Lol you're kidding me!
Not unusual with big valve sales to have issues and mistakes like that.

BTW, if anyone has an extra copy they'd like to sell, I'd pay $10 for one.
