I hear Valve is going to name their next release the BLUE Box. How's that for a kickback?

Btw, thanks again, Blue, for keeping us up to date on all these sales. It's very much appreciated.

I hope Steam et al. give you kickbacks for all the custom you're driving in their direction.

Yes me too. Amazon's game download system is nice. I also like how Amazon expansions work with retail versions like Dragon Age and ArmA2, etc. (Am I right?)

Thank you Blue for posting these lists. And thank you Cutter for mentioning The Dragon Knight Saga. I bought it at just under $27. Yesterday it was just under $20 on Steam. It's a fantastic game. I bought and started downloaded it just hours before the end of the year. I booted it up about 1:30am yesterday and played it until 4:00am before going to bed. My dog woke me just before 8:00am so I fed them and the stray cat before jumping back into the game. I played it for over seventeen hours yesterday before going to bed exhausted just after mid-night this morning.

WoW, it's an action game, with a lot of RPG elements, some platform jumping, and the game-world is old school loaded with tricks and traps. And best of all it's not overly easy or extremely difficult. There is less hand holding. And some items will surprise you when used. Not to mention some NPCs are tricksters. The graphics range from mediocre to phenomenal. I'm having a blast with it.

Crazy to think I saw videos of the original release Divinity II: Ego Draconis and got turned off because the way the character was allowed to jump anywhere without taking damage. Strange how we let one little thing blind us from so much other goodness. The game is not perfect but it's far better than some other AAA titles I've paid twice as much for....

I'm sort of glad the sales are over after today. I think I did good restraining myself from buying a lot of games on sale since I have several games I bought over a year ago that I haven't gotten to. I'm going to add up my damages later.

It looks like today's Steam sales are repeats of previous days. The Steam page is messing up for me too. When I first went to it, it was telling me that the GTA: Complete was not available in my location. A few minutes later the sale flip book thingy was gone. It's back now, but some of the pages are blank, it just shows a price at the top corner.

I went ahead and bought GTA: IV for $5 from Amazon last night since my retail disk is messed up. I let it download overnight and tried it out this morning. It worked like I hoped, installs just like a retail disk, without the need for a disk. After that I went ahead and bought EFLC too for $7.50, just to be able to install and play without having to get out the disk. I'll probably give my disk version to a friend that doesn't have it.

Now today Steam brings their GTA: IV Complete Pack sale back for $10. I'd say the extra $2.50 spent at Amazon is worth it to just be able to play the games without having to log into Steam first. I still like Steam, but I think Amazon is my new digital distributor of choice from now on if all of their downloads work like this.

It would have been nice if the Steam "Complete Pack" had them integrated together like you'd get if you bought the episodes through GFWL. It would have added 7GB to the GTA: IV install rather than another 16GB install for the standalone EFLC. I wish Rockstar would have made a way to install the standalone EFLC into GTA: IV.
