I wonder how much productivity and sleep is lost due to Steam.
I don't even play games and I still lose productivity and sleep. In fact, I am trying to catch up with two days of Blue's News right now!

So since there are new deals daily, do the previous day's deals expire or do they continue until January 2nd?

I'm tempted to get Fable 3, Portal 2 and Metro 2033.

What you will want to do is to exclusively check out the daily deals until January 2. Don't pay attention to the "regular" discounts until then because a game that is on sale right now for e.g. 33% discount might all of a sudden pop up as a daily deal with a 75% discount.
To maximize savings you want to wait until the last day of the sale (1/2/2012) before buying anything that is not a daily deal.

Got 25% of a valve game. Too bad I own them all. I hope GMG gets their shit together and does a good sale.

How many actually buy stuff from Impulse if the same game is on Steam?
This is anecdotal, but the only thing I have on Impulse is Demigod. The vast bulk I bought from Steam, although I have a dozen or so games on D2D. Last month I got SCII (finally!) which isn't available on any of those.

Couldn't resist Fable 1 for £1.74/2,24€/$2.49. Fable 3 on the other hand was easy to turn down.

Sometimes they have repeats or "best ofs" at the end, but you can't count on them.

If you really want them, it's best to pull the trigger.

When the new deals come tomorrow, the old deals go away.

Strangely enough, as hated as Gamestop is, by their acquisition of Impulse their Digital Download Service has less DRM than Steam. So if DRM is a deciding factor then I'd imagine more than a few might.

Personally, Steam's huge convenience far outweighs any negative effect that their minimal DRM might count for.

Well I ended up with a Gift copy of The Witcher Uber Super Unedited whatever edition on Steam if anyone wants to trade.

That's actually a decent trade!
