Boderlands 2, 50%

Prince of persia collection (all the games) 75%

Orcs must die 2 DLC, 75%

Arkham City GOTY 75%

Too bad I cannot play any of these games..

If people only bought games that they could and will play during these sales, everyone would only get like 1-2 games. Buying something on sale and going "Wait, I'm never going to play that. Why did I just buy that?" is half the fun of these sales!

Nothing yet, I'm waiting for a daily deal on Dark Souls. That and FTL are the only games I plan on buying because I'm pretty broke.

#55 Posted by KKGlider (44 posts) -

@amir90: Best of luck with that.

I copped that 'emmer 'effer.

They've got Castle Crashers at 66% off, and Duels of the Planeswalkers at 50% off--both of which I've been thinking about getting. I don't know though... that means turning a $5 purchase into a $15 purchase. I guess I have 24hrs to think it over.

I see the Batman games are also part of the daily deals. I know some of you bought some of those already, but I guess it's true that they say one should wait for Daily Deals or Flash Sales.

Anyway, it's been a good Steam sale so far. Merry Christmas!

#61 Posted by KKGlider (44 posts) -

I bought some more games... this is bad, you guys. Since I had already maxed out my credit card (note: not all on videogames!), I ran over to a 7-11 at 5am to buy a prepaid Visa so I can jump on some Flash Deals. That's gotta be a new low...

#62 Posted by Cleric22 (139 posts) -

So far I've just skated by with Torchlight II and Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. I'm on the fence about the Sims 3 and CS Go if anyone wants to toss out outstanding support for either game. I also bought the THQ Humble Bundle so that pretty well covers a lot of games that were on sale.

#63 Posted by rahulricky (286 posts) -

Bought Hotline Miami once it hit 50% off, only played 45 minutes of it so far, that is an intense game don't think I could marathon it.

I bought one thing from Steam this sale, because it was terrible.

Magic: The Gathering 2013 and its DLC.

I did get Sleepy Dogs from GreenManGaming (for £10 with £3 cashback) and XCOM from GameFly. Both had Steam codes to redeem and were cheaper than on Steam.

#65 Posted by Scottish_Sin (238 posts) -

Bought FTL earlier. Damn, people weren't kidding about how addictive that game can be.

The Dawn of War pack and Endless Space. I can't wait to jump into Endless Space. 
I will maybe be getting Far Cry 3 but I really shouldn't. Must not give in... must not give in... 
So far this sale has been kinda lacklustre. Though that might be because I own everything I want.

#72 Posted by sergeantz (151 posts) -

  • Awesomenauts
  • The Binding of Isaac
  • Dungeons of Dredmor
  • FTL: Faster Than Light
  • Hotline Miami
  • Runespell: Overture
  • Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition

It's been a good sale.

#75 Posted by 49th (2979 posts) -

Just bought CS: GO. It was cheaper to buy the whole Counterstrike pack even though I had the other games aside from GO - didn't get giftable copies but it was still 50p less.

Most of the games I want haven't had big enough reductions yet though and I don't really care enough about them to buy immediately. Stuff like Hitman and Mark of Ninja I will probably end up waiting until they hit -75% or whatever next sale.

#76 Posted by xMEGADETHxSLY (484 posts) -

Team Fortress 2

#77 Posted by stryker1121 (1740 posts) -

Hotline Miami, STALKER bundle and KOTOR2. Got the complete mods for the latter two games and am enjoying both immensely. I actually played KOTOR2 a few years back on XBOX, but never finished it cuz of some glitched quests. I forgot how good Obsidian's writers are.

#78 Posted by Dalai (7754 posts) -

I guess I should go right in order.

  • Universe Sandbox
  • Dead Island GOTY (just for the DLC)
  • Alan Wake's American Nightmare
  • Hotline Miami
  • Home
  • McPixel

I also gave away The Walking Dead and Toki Tori as gifts.

Also, I had to stop myself from buying a bunch of The Sims 3 expansions. I love the series, but I have zero time for it right now. Then again, I have no time for any of the games I bought already.

I know I had never heard of it until I bought it today. It's pretty damn good.
#81 Posted by Sanity (2042 posts) -

Heres the damage, i got more then i planned to as always. I paid like 7 bucks for Scribblenauts from amazon and i also picked up the Command and Conquer complete pack from Origin for 25 bucks so i spent like 130 total this year. I have too many games... Nice issue to have though.

#82 Edited by Rattle618 (1504 posts) -

EDIT: BTW let me know if anyone wants to do some torchlight 2 co-op.

#83 Posted by Stonyman65 (2990 posts) -
