Proof.....ish

What you hoping to get.

I'm looking for Batman AA, maybe Grid 2 if it's dirt cheap.

Not much else.

Not really looking to pick up anything specific, but I'll keep an eye on the deals.

PS. Grid 2 is trash. I thought it'd be worth picking it up for $12 the other day. Wasn't even worth the time to download it, never mind the price. If you liked the first GRID, don't waste your time with the new one. They took most of the things which were great about GRID and got rid of them.

I probably will pick up Ass Creed or anything else that may tickle my fancy. Picked up some games for the Autumn Sale that I haven't even touched yet, but Dark Souls.

Arkham Origins is the only game I want atm that is out. Otherwise waiting for Watch Dogs, possible Tomb Raider sequel and The Division is on my radar.

Tomb raider. Played it a couple of hours on a friend and i was pleasantly surprised how good it is ( and to think i never liked a tomb raider game before )

I also hope for an x3-rebirth discount. I know it launched as a buggy mess but it already started getting patches ( and egosofts post production support is good ) and mods that will make it great

I'd like to pick up Shadow Warrior, some DLC, some indie games, and hopefully Warframe packs go for 75% off on flash sales again.

Just reminded myself that I won't be home during this sale so I doubt I will be able to buy any game at all. :(

Unless there is a iPad app that I can use to buy games with :P

I'll probably grab Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider and Gone Home. Almost bought all 3 of them during the last sale but decided to buy Battlefield 4 instead.

I don't want to buy too much anymore, I'm trying to limit myself to only a few games that I really want and nothing else.

I'm mad at steam right now but i'd like to pick up Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. Latest Fall sale was disappointing. They didn't match or beat Amazon.com

Steam sales don't excite me anymore. It seems after two sales you have the cheap games. Then amazon keeps beating steam

I would give GTA V a go, but if it is as difficult to run as the previous due to excellent porting and optimization for PC, I might hold off playing it until I upgrade my GPU.

Starbound and Craft the world are only ones interested in and would have to be pretty cheap.

I can take my time buying stuff since have too many games anyway, i still have some i've never played.

Arkham Origins, The Wolf Among US, Injustice, and some Rocksmith song packs. Hopefully there's some things cheap enough for impulse buys. The past couple of sales have been mediocre for me though so I dunno.

I have an extra steam code for Arkham Origins. I got one with my GTX 760, returned it for Evga and so they gave me another code with Evga. I'll hook it up for super cheap to you, if you want.

I'm after Injustice too. It'll be my first purchase if it goes on a good discount.

I already got a lot of games during the Autumn sale, so probably the only thing I'm getting this time is The Walking Dead season 2.

Sale usually always starts the Thursday before Christmas so it makes sense for Dec. 19. Same sales as Autumn sale seems pretty pointless though. Sure, there are people that missed the Autumn sale that will buy a game at the same pricepoint, but what about the users who did participate? Will we have nothing new to look forward to? Seems odd and unlike Steam.

Just out of curiosity. Which games are you after? I'm pretty content with DayZ, FF14, BF4 and China Rising right now. Plus, backlog that I actually want to play, although, I wouldn't mind Odyssey to the West for $7.50 or less. And of course, Injustice: Gods Among Us. I don't see that game going $20 or below for a few more months though.. :(

I think I might forego this sale and just get DayZ...

My backlog is mahoosive.

I should concentrate on the games I have, but all I want to do is play BF4.

We should set up a Gamespot game one night.

Add Me on Origin : Klunt-Bumskrint.

( thread derail )

Carry on. Seal starts tomorrow ;)

can't you just use a web browser to navigate to store.steampowered.com and then buy anything, on anything that has a web browser?

Got several games I'm after, but they probably won't hit my $5 sweet spot for the Xmas sale.

Metro Last Light

Tomb Raider

Skyrim: Dragonborn

Borderlands 2

Stanley Parable

Shadowrun Returns

Typing of the Dead Overkill

That's just a small portion :P

Nice list you got there. I'm sure you've already seen Metro LL and Borderlands 2 for $10 a few times. Shadowrun Returns is great. If you want a nice isometric-view game with a good story, I highly recommend it. TR I've seen for $10 several times. I mean, $30-40 for all of those is a good deal. I spent $40 on Crysis 3 and it was my biggest regret this year. xD

It's pretty simple. Wishlist your top MOST WANTED games. Steam will notify you when a game in your wishlist goes on sale by email or you could check your wishlist. All that front page is razzle dazzle and full of disappointment. It's only there to tempt you to buy games you never wanted, sometimes crappy ones. Stick to your guns - the wishlist.

Hmm Arkham Origins for 25 dollars. I'm guessing it wont go any lower on this sale.

Views on whether its worth it or not for that price?

If you want more Batman: Arkham, definitely. There's a bias placed on Arkham Origins because it wasn't developed by Rocksteady. That's a load of BS. Still a good game and a good Batman game. I liked it more than Arkham City, which I thought was a bit overrated. I'd rank it like this: Asylum > Origins > City.

Views on whether its worth it or not for that price?

If you want more Batman: Arkham, definitely. There's a bias placed on Arkham Origins because it wasn't developed by Rocksteady. That's a load of BS. Still a good game and a good Batman game. I liked it more than Arkham City, which I thought was a bit overrated. I'd rank it like this: Asylum > Origins > City.

Cheers... I think i'll grab it.

I got mine off ebay a few days ago for £9.99 look there first
