Defiantly looking for New Vegas Complete to hit 75%, but can wait. As much as I despise id nowdays, I must admit Rage looks tempting at $5.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

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.

Encore? Hmm, sales a little flat from all the lackluster repeating offers?

You're actually bitching about a sale?

Wow, that's really heartbreaking to hear it went that low and I missed it! I'm still fairly new to GMG so I'll be sure to double down and compare on my visits to check out the sales. Actually, just checking it out now and there's a 20% off discount code so maybe if XCOM goes back on sale while that's offered, I can snag a decent deal. I don't expect it to go back on sale, but here's to hoping.

Is there any structure to their sales or do they shuffle them at random?

I picked X-Com up for 19.99 on Amazon as well. Haven't bought anything from GMG, as some people reportedly have their cards rejected or paypal declined when buying things.

Ffs, bought Sleeping Dogs yesterday for 50% off.

Hateful.

Oh well, I don't ofter have the time to play an entire day like yesterday so I guess it's worth the €7,- extra I paid. The game is really good! Can't believe how bad the PR failed on this game. Had no idea it was this good, and I personally could've made all the trailers better in that they more accurately portrayed the true character of the game.

I feel as though there is some kind of void in my current lineup of titles, especially after picking up several within the sale but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Maybe I just need a damn fine strategy game to lay in to so here's to hoping XCOM can come down a little to help pass the time until the launch of Colonial Marines.

You're a bit late to grab XCOM at a discount. GMG had the best deal on XCOM, 50% off which stacked with the 30% coupon bringing it down to $17.50.

So far all of the best deals have been outside Steam, even for Steam games. I looked at my total so far, and I've only bought two games for myself on Steam during this sale. I've spent more at GMG and Amazon for Steam games, plus picked up some games from GOG.

You can say that again. Amazon and other places had games cheaper than steam almost all the time.
Way too many repeats with higher prices on steam.

Did you get the texture pack?

IMHO these 3 games are MUST buys & play

Farcry 3
Sleeping Dogs (With the texture pack..O...M...G!)
Dishonored

I disagree with all three... Mainly because I've not played any...

I did just run through Rage this holiday season, after picking it up at the previous sale for $5, and was highly and pleasantly surprised... Enjoyed it quite a bit : )

Wasn't someone looking for New Vegas on Sale?

Teh Shack says it's $4.99 on gamersgate, I'm assuming w/o DLC...

Hmmm maybe I'll pick up more games then this weekend. So far I've only bought Kotor2 and Mark of the ninja in the sales. Oh, and I also bought the Artrage app.
