So Steam, the digital distribution system, is having a massive Christmas and New Year sale! Great! And, unlike many sales, there are some amazing savings.

STALKER: Clear Sky for £10
Bioshock for £3.
Every ID game (all of the Quakes and all of the Dooms) for £20.
Portal for £3.
All of the Warhammer: Dawn of War games for £15.
Every Unreal game (the series, not the engine) for £10.
Every Valve game for £40.
And some really retro classics for £1.

I'm thinking of picking up all of the Unreal games, mainly for the Tournament games (and their modding community), and STALKER - which I've always contemplated buying but never bothered because of the £20 price-tag.

So get on down to Steam... well you don't actually have to go down any where; it can all be done with a mouse and keyboard!

PS. The only real drawback to this is that Steam in the UK is now in Pound Sterling - a move made because of the ever declining dollar.

Bioshock only £3? That's ridiculously good.

Bioshock is extremely good for £3 so buy it, now!

Bought BioShock again for the £3 price aswell as FarCry2....can't complain about £26 for a semi decent A title of the year.

Wow, there are some great deals!

Of course 2 days after I buy CoD 4 it goes down to $37.49 ...

I know it's crazy the deals that are going on now. I spent like $84 and got the Id Super Pack, Dawn of War complete pack, Bioshock, The darwinia/multiwinia pack, and Sid Meier's Pirates!. My not installed list is freaking huge.

I thought about getting Company of Heroes but it's still £10. I can probably find it cheaper on Amazon.

or just get down to a local zavvi.  As they are in administration and closing up shop you could probably get it for a few pence!  :D

These deals were just way too crazy to pass up, I got Bioshock and the ID super pack.

I wish I would have known about the ID super pack about a week ago, it almost makes me want to cry. That is such a steal.
