Steam Holiday Sale 2013 Master Discussion Thread

#1 Edited by TreeTrunk (221 posts) -

Moderator edit...

Instead of starting another new thread for discussion about this year's Steam sale, just going to edit this one slightly and pin it. Spend responsibly! Or not!

Also, please don't start new topics for individual games going on sale as part of the Holiday event. Let's try to keep as much as possible contained in this thread. Thanks!

#6 Posted by Kidavenger (3944 posts) -

Seems a bit early this year, but makes sense.

I hope they have some sort of event this year.

Here's the key to surviving Steam sales: Buy everything you want now/think you will want/don't really want but man that's a really low price and what if my tastes in games changes down the lines that I actually like racing games then I'll feel real stupid about missing this deal so fuck it. Then future Steam sales become a piece of cake to get through! It worked for me, and it can for you too!

I never buy much during these things but maybe something will catch my eye.

#11 Posted by thebunnyhunter (1522 posts) -

Man i already spent way too much on video game related items this year.. On the good side i probably wont spend too mcuh since i have pretty much everygame i want from the previous sales, but somehow Gaben will find a way into my wallet.

#12 Posted by jimmyfenix (3941 posts) -

My wallet is ready :D

#13 Posted by crithon (3551 posts) -

it's all about those flash deals and then they reappear at the end of the sale.

These videos will be never not be hilarious.

#15 Posted by afabs515 (1490 posts) -

I cant wait to spend ALL MY MONEY over the next few weeks.

#16 Posted by Andorski (5471 posts) -

I didn't buy a single game in the Autumn Sale, so I need to make up for lost ground. LEGO MARVEL Super Hereos, The Stanley Parable, The Wolf Among Us, Rayman Origins + Legends, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Papers Please... so many games need to be bought.

#18 Posted by ZolRoyce (1192 posts) -

Don't shoot until you see the white of their daily deals! HOOOOOLD! HOOOOOOOOLD! HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLDDD!

#19 Posted by BeachThunder (13364 posts) -

The leaked document from ages ago seems to suggest that the sales will be the same as the last sale.

#20 Posted by face15 (1373 posts) -

@andorski: God damn you I need to buy all of those. I have no money I HATE YOU GABE.

#21 Posted by Dalai (7798 posts) -

If I keep my spending to under $50, then it's a victory. I held firm during the Autumn Sale so I do have the ability to defend myself from spending money unwisely.

#22 Posted by bybeach (5203 posts) -

need to get bioshock 2 and minerva's den . And there will be others. Basically archiving anything I like that was x box 360 or Ps 3 for me. It's time.

#23 Edited by devoidcheeks (36 posts) -

this is gonna make me mad for not waiting another week for brothers...good game, but would have loved it more at 1/2 the price

Well, the good thing about being a long time steam sale veteran is that you more than likely have most of the games you'd want already by the time this sale rolls around. There's a few things I'm looking to pick up, but for the most part I'm good.

#25 Posted by Tesla (2029 posts) -

As someone who never buys PC games unless a Steam sale is going on, I've got a solid list of 11 games from this year I'll be grabbing.

#26 Posted by MOAB (464 posts) -

Nah, I'm good. I'm gonna use any money I'd spend there and upgrade my CPU. Intel, here I come! :3

I feel like on the zoom in he starts smiling just a little bit more Rofl so great.

#28 Edited by MachoFantastico (5652 posts) -

That video as made my day, priceless!

Also, woo Steam sales. Let's hope they don't suck, I didn't buy a single thing in the last sales. We've been good boys and girls Father Gaben.

#29 Edited by NekuSakuraba (7803 posts) -

Can't wait, here is my current wishlist -

Duke Nukem 3D Megaton edition

Shadow Warrior Classic Redux

Kerbal Space Program

XCOM: Enemy Within

Hurry up steam!

#30 Posted by Veektarius (5460 posts) -

I feel like I'm pretty well caught up on my gaming catalog (at least in what I own), but maybe some deals on smaller games will surprise me.

#31 Posted by alanm26v5 (546 posts) -

Amazon started their stuff already. I bought Aliens: Colonial Marines for $2 because, well I have no idea why honestly. It does come with a $5 credit to use in January, but I'm set for months in games I haven't played. I think I have a problem.

#32 Posted by Nekroskop (2831 posts) -

Rocksmith dlc please be 50-75% off...

#33 Edited by Pr1mus (4107 posts) -

Didn't buy anything in the Autumn sale, pretty sure i can go for two in a row without buying anything.

Gaben has no power over me anymore.

#34 Edited by BigJeffrey (5200 posts) -

Summer Christmas

#35 Edited by Mike (14589 posts) -

I can't think of anything I actually want right now, but I know I'm going to end up buying a lot of shit just like I do every year. Screw you, Steam. Also, I love you.

I want that new Shadow Warrior and XCOM expansion pack. I'm going write them down on a piece of paper and put it under my pillow. Also Mount and Blade for $1 or something crazy so I can be a little drummer boy.

Same here, but I do love browsing and saying "WHHAAAAT! I'll totally buy that for that price!!"

#38 Posted by ripelivejam (6648 posts) -

think ill dump $40 into my steam wallet and limit myself to that. you know, show some fucking restraint like a goddamn adult should.

#39 Posted by chiablo (1033 posts) -

I'm hoping that Enslaved goes on sale. I missed this one on consoles and heard it was a good story.

#40 Posted by sodapop7 (419 posts) -

@ripelivejam: This is not in the spirit of the Steam sale. You total it up at the end that's half the fun!

#41 Edited by Coafi (1519 posts) -

Nooo, somebody take my wallet. I don't wanna spend any more money. Somebody stop me!

#42 Posted by Bollard (6615 posts) -

I feel like I've been conned, where da sale at brah.

#43 Posted by BeachThunder (13364 posts) -

It's heeeeeere!

#44 Posted by DarkShaper (1363 posts) -

One of the games on sale is the Pre-Order for Metal Gear Rising. That was unexpected.

#45 Posted by ConfusedOwl (1048 posts) -

I ran out of money a while ago so I probably won't be getting much, if anything. I wouldn't mind if the Oblivion GOTY deluxe (Isn't that a great way to make money, two GOTY versions!) went on sale for more than 50% but I'm not holding out hope.

Hahahaha of course Walking Dead Season Two is 10%, of course. Hahahahaha... fuck you Telltale.

It's been at 10% off since the preorders were available. I don't think it will really be a part of the winter sale.

#48 Posted by Kaiserreich (829 posts) -

I'm only allowing myself to spend $10 on this sale. My backlog is unmanageably large already.

#49 Posted by BeachThunder (13364 posts) -

It's not likely that Brothers will be more than 50% off, right?

#50 Posted by Bollard (6615 posts) -

Sale is live now.
