Did they shorten the steam sale, or am I going crazy?

I could have sworn the other day the banner on the main page said "Dec. 20 - Jan. 5"
keep in mind I have been jacked up on caffeine for the last 2 1/2 days.

Nope, it's been the 2nd since the sale launched.

Yep, it's always been from Dec 20 - Jan 2. Don't trust the caffeine.

@Chavtheworld: Please make it stop. I woke up last night and actually heard my wallet crying.

I came into this thread horrified that the Steam Sale might have been shortened to be over.  Phew.

Mah daiz new salez! See... I would buy New Vegas, cause it is pretty cheap but... It's only £15 in stores atm so Steam is still more expensive. 
Also Torchlight £3, what a stealllll (if I didn't already have it). CS:S is something I have been meaning to pick up... Hmm... Steam you already got me once so far, you might just have done it again!

None of the deals today are particularly great. 
Anyone looking for Borderlands in the UK can get the GOTY version from Amazon, it's cheaper than what Steam is charging for the regular.  Ditto for New Vegas, even the console versions are cheaper for both of these.
Though I'd highly recommend Torchlight and Sam & Max to anyone who hasn't already played them. 
Saints Row 2 is good, if you're looking for a fun sandbox game.  Much better than GTAIV was, in my opinion.

The entire Overlord set for $3.50 ain't bad. I beat the first one on 360 and it was pretty fun.

You should see a doctor whenever possible.
