Steam Holiday Sale Begins

The Steam Store now reflects the Steam holiday sale, which will run from now until January 2, offering up to 80% savings on select titles, as well as daily and weekly specials on individual titles and compilations. They are also offering a daily special for those who already own a specific Steam game, kicking things off with an additional 10% off on Portal (which is already 75% off) for those who already own Half-Life 2. Here are some of the more than 1000 titles on sale, with individual titles from these various bundles and collections also available at discounts:

I know I can get it a bit cheaper retail. But I would rather pay a bit more and keep all my games on Steam.

Isn't Black Ops one of those games that use Steam anyways? As Civilization or Empire for example.
In that case you could buy it via retail and will have it in Steam too. Can't say for sure, I don't have it.

Yes, Black Ops uses Steamworks.

I think the difficulty of the game (Super Meat Boy) is way over-stated. I can't even beat most Mega-Man games (or almost any other NES era platformer), but I had no trouble beating the light world of SMB. The Dark World was tough, but since very few levels take longer than 20 seconds or so to beat, and there are instant respawns with no lives counter, I was able to finish all the levels.

That's good to know. It is getting great reviews everywhere I look, so if the difficulty isn't insane it's a must-buy.

The "tough as nails" part in the description turned me off from it. Stubbornly trudging through Ghosts and Goblins and Shinobi when I was younger was all well and good, but I'm an old fart with no patience now... If a game claims to be as tough as nails in its own description, I am probably not the target audience.

If ROCKSTAR is so good that they can't bring RED DEAD REDEMTION to the PC then FUCK THEIR STEAM COLLECTION.

Im waiting for Black Ops on this list!

I highly doubt that this will happen. Even with a daily deal, it would never achieve more than -20%. You can get it for a better price via retail.

Thank you Prez. One game less to ponder about.

Hehe, I see that Prez transfered the GOG spirit to Blue. Added you and I don't even want a free game!

So does anyone have some little secret must have titles?
Currently I have Space Rangers 2: Reboot and Guardians of Graxia on my watch list.

Super Meat Boy for $3.75 is a great deal. (it's a great deal even at the normal $15 price!)

Well, nothing jumps out at me right now. I own most of the games I want, and the publisher catalog sales aren't worth grabbing until the last day in case a specific game goes on the daily sale.

I still need to play through Dragon Age, so I'll probably grab the Ultimate Edition for all the DLC if it drops a bit more.

It's a developer decision, but it's just about only Valve that lets you gift "extra" copies of games, else they just disappear.

If you are concerned, it will tell you prior to finalizing purchase - it will state "You already own <Game XYZ>, you will/won't be able to purchase additional copies." Well, something to that effect...
Kind of like reverse piracy by the publishers. ZOMG.
Having picked up all the Oddworld games as well as the newest PoP,

C'mon, friend me - I was only kidding!

BTW, the 'deluded nutjob' comment was because you said I was awesome, not because of anything you have said in the past.
