Christ, they just get lazier every year don't they? Now no flash sales or games? They haven't been aggressive on pricing in forever. Other services just need to be slightly more aggressive than Steam on these things to topple them but they can't seem to manage it, even when it's direct from the publisher. How retarded is that? It would be so simple to undercut them and steal all that business, but they're too stupid and greedy not to.
Still, there are some good deals on Uplay, Origin, et al. as well.
Those were reserved for the bigger winter and summer sales this is just the fall sale. I do miss the early sale days when they got a bunch of game devs to put in achievements to their games for the event.
I won't complain if they get rid of flash sales for the winter/summer sale. Everyone learned to wait until the last day to buy games anyway, and I hated it when a game I wanted went up on a flash sale and I missed it.
Since they started doing the special cards for summer and winter sales the past couple of years, I've only bought games during the summer and winter sales. It's like having a little bit of an extra discount after you sell them. Elite Dangerous is kind of tempting for $15.
