Steam Holiday Sale

The annual holiday sale is now underway on Steam, offering a bunch of games on sale, with new additions daily, community choice voting, and flash deals to be announced along the way between now and when the event concludes on January 5th. Today's specials are Save 50-75% on the Borderlands Franchise, Save 75% on Mirror's Edge, Save 50% on the Hitman Franchise, Save 75% on the Prince of Persia Franchise, Save 33% on Scribblenauts Unlimited, and Save 75% on Wargame: European Escalation. Word is the new-and-improved sale features an easier way to see when the games you want go on sale:

The Steam Holiday Sale is on now and runs until January 5, 2012. There are huge savings throughout the store, with daily deals, flash sales, and catalog discounts. Additionally, every twelve hours there will be a chance for gamers to vote on a select game to go on sale.

This year, we've taken some of the guesswork out of when your favorite games will be on sale. You may now organize your Steam Wishlist and be notified via Steam Mobile and/or email when a game from the list goes on sale as a Daily Deal. The Steam Mobile App is available for both iOS and Android.

Complete information on all the savings, daily deals, featured publisher game packs, compilations and more may be found on www.steampowered.com.

You know owning Snuggle Truck is not as bad as actually putting 100hrs into it. I am looking at you Prez. What do you think this tells to the developers of this game, hmm?

Probably that I am eiher mentally retarded or I am using it as a form of therapy trying to cure my terrible depression by continued exposure to unbearable cuteness.

Btw, snuggle truck is pretty fun. Pure luck to finish something, but it's like a cute version of happy wheels.

It's fun to play it like pewdiepie, and keep going "front flip"

As I said in one of the other threads, it's really fun on a tablet. I got it from one of the Humble Android Bundles, and it comes with the original version called Smuggle Truck. I guess Steam had a problem with a game about smuggling illegal aliens across the border, so the devs changed them to stuffed animals and called it Snuggle Truck.

LOL. I thought the whole stuffed animals to the zoo thing made no fucking sense.

I was thinking more along the lines of with the sudden spike in sales and sheer amount of hours spent playing this game, I think it is safe to say we will see a sequel!

EndWar looks good, but I am not a big fan of voice command games. First of all I usually play games when everyone in the house is asleep, second of all with my accent the poor game wouldn't have a freaking clue what I am trying to say.
I never bothered to look into it if EndWar has any other control methods or voice is the only option. There are plenty of strategy games out there that keep me entertained anyways.
For example I just recently found out I can add my Supreme Commander retail cd key to Steam and it activates and also adds Forged Alliance for free. Now there is a new reason to play it !

Not going to get them all at $60+. Now if they had a 75% off on the PACK as well, I'd probably pick it up. Plus I already own the best of them in steam, most of the splinter cell ones.

Metascore 80

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

So with that said, anyone know what the best games in the series were?
$2.50 per game on most of them right now.
I thought the Advanced Warfighter ones were pretty decent games.
For $2.50 a pop might as well get them all. At least for me those were decent modern military shooters back in the day. Before CoD took over the genre.
I think Desert Eagle and Island Thunder are also pretty good, but they are ancient games.
I am thinking about grabbing Future Soldier for $15.

My advice: Do NOT buy the tom clancy's bundle today:

$64.81 Price of individual games:
$67.99 Bundle cost:


Turns out the bundle costs MORE then getting ALL the individual games. So buy the ones you want instead.

So with that said, anyone know what the best games in the series were?
$2.50 per game on most of them right now.

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time is a GREAT game, I think that was one of my favorites of all 4 new PoP games.
Ditto. I wished they had that 2D Xbox 360 remake for computers. I would SO replay that in Windows/Linux/Mac! I loved the original 2D game and its sequel on my IBM PS/2 Model 30 286 10 Mhz system!

Doesn't GoG have the original PoP 1 & 2?

Also, I heard about the thing with xbox, how was it remade?
I have no idea. I want the remake version that Xbox 360 has.

To steam? Gimme that email. I've waited weeks trying to get a missing game from a steam bundle I bought. The laughable excuse for steam customer service doesn't go anywhere.
