Nobody is really sure when it's going to start, but it will most likely be either this week or next week, and probably on a thursday. So, what do you plan on buying? Do you have an idea of what you are going to get already, or are you just going to wait and see if anything catches your interest?

Currently, this is the list of games I'll be watching out for:

La Mulana

Trackmania 2 Canyon

GRID

Singularity

Burnout Paradise

Super House of Dead Ninjas

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

The new Call of Juarez is all I can think of. I have like 200 games in my Steam library so there is not much I want that I don't have.

Don't starve gets boring after you figure out a safe strategy imo, but still fun nonetheless for at least ten hours. Arma 3 probably won't go on sale. Price is actually going up tomorrow. I actually regret buying it right now because "showcases" and most of the people people playing MP are braindead.

Good topic. I'm going to get Hotline Miami since I wanted it on Steam. I might snap up that hospital operating game and maybe get Sleeping Dogs. I'm still not sure whether I want to play it so close to GTA coming out.

Tomb Raider, Crazy Taxi, and maybe GTA IV. Of course I'm sure other deals will pop up, but I'm gonna do what I did with the Christmas Sale and put a certain amount of money in my Steam Wallet, that way I can't get to many games.

Probably a lot of indie games. I'm thinking of picking up Fez, Don't Starve, the Swapper, and Dust: An Elysian Tail.

Sleepyz

Yeah, a great price on Borderlands 2 plus all DLC would probaby take the place of Call of Juarez: GS, FTL and maybe missing link.  I just thought since the GOTYE isn't even out yet then I am not likely to get a good price with dlc included.

Thank you for the heads up. Although I heard a lot of good things about Arma 3 Alpha and Don't Starve. I guess I'll pick up Don't Starve if the price is right. Sorry, I'm cheap because 70% of the time, I only touch the new games I buy for a couple of hours and then I never return to it. :P Unepic will probably join my collection too.

FTL was on sale for 2.50 a couple days ago, amazing game!! Im looking forward to getting Fez, Don't Starve, The Swapper, I want Black Ops 2 but I know there won't be any decent sale on, besides that not much. I'll just keep my eyes open and scout all the amazing deals!

I would buy Deadpool if it was like $7.50 or less. :P Looks like a laid back fun game.  But we know it won't be on sale for a low price.

Speaking for youself on Arma3 obviously. I've had some of the best gaming of my life playing this game, and it's just getting better with every major update. Sounds like you need to find a good group to play with, a lot of PUG's are crap, and I wouldn't even consider entering a wasteland server, it's all different shades of garbage when you play that game mode.. There are some great groups to be found, just find one with a group that takes the game slow and steady and you'll probably have a shit-ton of fun!

They won't be doing a sale before the game releases esp. considering it's already on sale, I'm pretty certain on that one.

Yup! Arma is definitely an investment. With all the fun I had with Arma 2, I admit I haven't played Arma 3 too much, but I bought the alpha day 1 because of the price, and also because I knew dozens of hours were going to be put into the game eventually. Just a matter of when.

For this Steam sale, I'm excited about it, but at the same time it's unlikely I'm going to be buying much if anything at all. The past months it feels like I've already been buying stuff like crazy (great Amazon sale, then preordered 3 things on GMG, a few crazy daily/weekend sales I just snatched up and don't regret, then the GetGamesGo Bethesda sale someone posted a day back). This stuff will last me all the way to next summer and beyond, considering how little gaming I actually do during the year. The stuff I'd really like to play will most likely only go down to half price, and that'll be $30 bucks at the least. If that's the case, I got a massive backlog I desperately need to get started on. I'm still mucking my way through The Lost And The Damned, and EFLC was one of the first games I installed on this new computer.

I'm looking forward to some unexpected indie gems I've never heard of to pop up though. I've got a passing interest in the games on my wishlist and I'm still debating if I'd even play them when I got them, but it's stuff like Book of Unwritten Tales, any of the Silent Hunter games, Monaco (I'll play this), Endless Space, Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, Far Cry 3...

Given that they always have the same god damn deals every sale (for the most part), I'll prolly pick up Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines if it goes on sale. Anything else I don't really have planned I guess.

I usually don't go into the sale looking for any in particular. If I see a deal that is particularly good then I'll pick it up. I usually only stick to games that are at least 50% off. Most the games I buy are between 60-75% off.

Metro Last light...yeah.  I forgot about that.  I might pick that up.  Outside of Metro:LL I'm surprised there are so many 2-d games on my list.  Xcom Enemy Unknown sounds like it can be frustrating but awesome.  However, Hotline Miami and FTL could just be frustrating frustrating.  Seeing Total Biscuit on youtube get owned by the equivalent of a stealth bunny rabbit as soon as he got out the gate did NOT look that fun to me.

Pfft.  Come to think of it.  I can't complete last year's 2-d game on sale -- Magicka -- because you need at least three people to do it.  I still have 1.5 chapters to go.  If there is anyone who really likes Magicka on Steam and wants to team up, please hit me up on Steam and we can bang out half of chapter 11 and chapter 12 together.  I only have one friend who was actively playing Magicka recently and his games all got uninstalled and hasn't been doing much to reinstall most of 'em.

Just Star Wars: KOTOR and Vampire: The Masqurade - Bloodlines as I had my eye on them for a long while. My backlog has gotten a great deal lighter and I want to keep it that way for a while.

Eh, we'll see. If theres a killer deal on something interesting...I might get it. The best thing about these sales is that you take a look at games you might not otherwise buy like something TBS when all you play is RTS or something RPG rather than all Action. Ive learned to control myself so no BS buys this time around (well for the last couple rounds actually).

I don't plan on buying much. Too many games to play as it is and I always buy games I never get around to playing.
