You all can blame if you choose to, I understand the frustration. Contrary to some of your claims, this wasn't about "15 minutes of fame". This is the internet, if I have to get 15 minutes of forum fame, well, my life would be pretty pathetic. This was me wanting to have everything in one place. Since you don't see volunteer moderator underneath my name, this wasn't a power grab since I don't have any power to use. I will copy everything over from the previous two threads as I agree that would be beneficial. If there is any other advice you would like to give, please do.

Damaged, KubanitoS, don't be so negative! Lots of deals on Steam recently, it just doesn't make any sense to discuss Sunday's deals in one thread and Wednesday's deals in another.

This is a functional approach: there is a deal on steam - discuss it here.

No, just absolutely no, it makes perfect sense to discuss different deals in different threads

You yourself even said that there's a lot of deals on steam recently, so having everyone talking about multiple deals on games in the same thread lapping over eachother makes sense?

What madness is this?

If I were you I'd make all past Midweek Madnesses green (a dark green though, the one you have now for the current sales is a bit bright IMO) and yellow alternating and then all past Weekend Sales purple and orange alternating. I'd also raise the font of all section headers so that it's easier to tell that you're transitioning through a section when you're scrolling down quickly.

To all, I apologize if my idea and implementation of it so far has offended you. That was never my intention. Nor was it my intention to steal anyone's hard work and claim it as my own. Neither was it my intention to upset as many people as I apparently have. I simply thought that one thread where every deal could be discussed, listed, and updated would be nice.

There is nothing more I can say in regards to all of your concerns. I am sure you will still voice them. All that I can do is try and make the OP better as long as this thread is open. Hopefully, eventually, those of you who are upset will become less so.

I can see the point of joining the other threads for the reason that we get so many deals lately. But, as already pointed out, the Price reductions and sales! (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=518670) already covers all deals (AND general price reductions!). Basicly, I don't understand why you don't make that the only deal thread.

The only thing Price reductions and sales! (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=518670) is missing is a back-catalogue of all the deals so far. The old Weekend Deals and Midweek Madness threads had these. The only way this thread can be a bit more useful than Price reductions and sales! (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=518670) is to have the back-catalogue - and please don't just link to the old threads. If we wanted to check the previous deals before we had two threads to search, now we will have three. Copy/paste the deals so we only have this one. Or, add the back-catalogue to Price reductions and sales! (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=518670) and make that the _official_ deals and reductions thread.

Gonna miss it, the thread was the biggest almost in general and each week it was nice to pop in and debate the next deal that could be.

Heh, yea. When put in perspective, $5.00 games are instinct lol. I picked up TLR also. I am confident that during the Holiday Sale it won't see anything above 75% so its as good of a time as any.

If we're going to be getting midweek, weeklong and weekend sales then even 5 bucks for a game still ends up being 60 a month if you just pick up on all of them :p. And taking that if one actually plays all those deals no income as there's no time for work that's still valuable lunch money ;).

But yeh, kinda hoping for the same. Best would be something I already got :p. Although a 75% off on a good title will be nice as well, considering that'll be saving some during the xmas sales ;).

I'm almost tempted by the Avatar deal as I enjoyed the demo. But it's a real gamble. Get the SE now for the regular price or wait and see if it will be discounted more in the (possible) sale at the end of the year.

And that's even if every single game is discounted again... Just as long as the year end sale (if they have one) isn't set up like the one around Thanksgiving. 24 hour only offers are annoying, especially when you don't know what will be offered in the next 24 hours.

Europhoria
12-16-2009, 06:45 PM
Yeah, at only 10% off, I don't see much point in buying the game now either. Plus, I'm always worried about the quality of games based off movies (and vice versa) not to mention it's average Metacritic rating.

If Valve does those 24 hour deals, I'm stuffed. Christmas dinners and Boxing Day lunches etc. My hope is that since the family is doing the Christmas thing early this year thanks to the Victorian part doing theirs on Christmas Day, I'll have Chrissy and Boxing Day freed up.

I'm almost tempted by the Avatar deal as I enjoyed the demo. But it's a real gamble. Get the SE now for the regular price or wait and see if it will be discounted more in the (possible) sale at the end of the year.

And that's even if every single game is discounted again... Just as long as the year end sale (if they have one) isn't set up like the one around Thanksgiving. 24 hour only offers are annoying, especially when you don't know what will be offered in the next 24 hours.

Honestly Yot, I don't think you can do worse by waiting for the sale. I expect every game to be on sale for at least 10% which would be more than it is currently on sale.

Personally, I don't bother with Metacritic scores or any other reviews -- especially when a demo is available. This is for the simple reason that the people reviewing those games are not me. They don't know what I enjoy. I do.

Honestly Yot, I don't think you can do worse by waiting for the sale. I expect every game to be on sale for at least 10% which would be more than it is currently on sale.

But I do expect you're both right. The current deal is only 9% off. So if we *do* get a sale which follows the rules of last year's one, then yes, the saving will be a tiny bit more.

So I will almost certainly wait to see if it is included in whatever sale we may get at the end of the year. Besides, it's not like I can suddenly rush out to watch the movie on the 18th (doesn't get released here till the 23rd and at around $20 for the ticket I probably won't be seeing it anytime soon).

24 hour deals were far too stressful on the store server, not to mention the many customers trying to barge the door down to just glimps at the prices. This time, the staff will be at home for a day or two enjoying Christmas while we start setting up battering rams. The scenes last year were pretty ugly.

Metacritic is just another guide to use. I like to read what others have to say (just like the many deal threads we've had over the years) and if there's something that most, or all of the reviewers tend to agree on (like the incomplete nature of CitiesXI), I'll make note of it. Of course, there are many people who just don't 'get' what a game's about and write absolute rubbish. I only use Metacritic if there is no demo about, which unfortunately is quite common these days.

Also, $20 a ticket is a bit much, even here in the overpriced land of Aust, it's only $16 + $1 booking fee (I don't know about buying at the cinema) for adults. One reason I don't bother going to the cinemas, overpriced and often mediocre quality. I'd do far better with those $5 deals that could provide me more than 90 minutes of entertainment.

Torchlight is one of 2009's highlights, and considering it had to go up against such heavyweights as Dragon Age: Origins and Empire: Total War that's no small feat. In my not-so-humble opinion, the only valid reason not to buy it with this deal is "I already have it".

Why? Lemme guess...because of the poor portwork on Saints Row 2, right?

Just FYI, Volition did NOT do the PC port of SR2 in-house; it was ported by a team at CD Projekt (in Poland). The PC port of RFG was also done by an external studio, but not CD Projekt, this time. Reactor Zero did the port, and they did a much better job than CD Projekt, if I do say so myself. At any rate, there is no reason to judge the port of RFG, based on the port of SR2, because they were worked on by entirely different studios.

Very confusing, but hearing to all the comments out there i'm not willing to waste money in a game in which i doubt about the quality.
A demo would have been nice but since there's no demo, that means no buy until the price drops like to %75 just like it happened with SR2.
They should have thought about quit supporting SR2 twice. That is what they get when they treat customers like ♥♥♥♥.

I wonder how everybody's Christmas list is looking? I've got mine and I'm checking it twice. It's only Civ4:TCE and the Novalogic pack at the moment (plus the Rockstar pack if I can get a hold of it). Valve, do your worst, I'm armed with a new hard drive and I'm not afraid to use it.

I'd like to see Red Faction Guerrilla on a deal. I'm a little afraid of it considering it's coming from Voltion.

The port of RF:G is actually pretty good. I haven't played much of SR2 yet so I can't really compare the two, but RF:G looks great and runs quite well.

You guys have a list? Hmm...I think I will just pick and choose the best among what is offered. But something that is definitely on my list is Dragon Age: Origins. Unfortunately, that wish is unlikely to be fulfilled.

Your Civ Complete wish is likely to be granted because it has been/will be on sale at other places, so I am pretty sure that it will be done!

What happened to the Torchlight Steam deal? I was about to purchase itwith the 9.99 pricetag due to the Steam sale, but upon putting it in the basket, the price jumped back up to 19.99! They said the sale would last throught Monday, and it's only 4:30 EST. What gives?

It was on sale all weekend long, but you waited until Monday afternoon to buy it? Lesson learned I guess.

The port of RF:G is actually pretty good. I haven't played much of SR2 yet so I can't really compare the two, but RF:G looks great and runs quite well.

My experience with RF:G was very good. I hate having to deal with GFWL, but the port was solid IMO. I too have not played SR2, so I can't compare, but I will say that RF:G was worth the $$$ if you're interested. With bonus missions the single player campaign is ~20 hours.

That's what I thought before the Christmas sales (and to be honest, before the unexpected pre-holiday sales) until I saw those juicy juicy discounts. I was only expecting to buy the Novalogic pack and Civilization 4: The Complete Edition for something like $100US. I ended up spending at least 3x that amount. Valve is to my credit card what Billy Blanks is to exercise.

The only problem I have with this sale is Valve have really set the bar much higher and soon people will be insulted by deals any less than 75% off. 50% off packs, insane!

Well your character is pretty probably to sell a bit, you can zoom in and the models look cool. The only thing I dont like about AP is that you have to read a lot of dialogue and theres no voice acting, and the letters could have been bigger on my resolution at least.

There would be no way we would know if there will NOT be a weekend deal so there's no point in asking. However, considering there's no holiday this week, or anything "special" going on, you would definitely asume there should be a weekend deal, there's really no reason to ever expect there won't be a weekend deal unless there's something like the holiday sale going on

As to the question in hand, it's Dirt 2 for 50% off

It's DiRT 2. At $19,99 in the US this is probably not a bad buy.
If you live in Europe it's a whopping $36 down from $72 ... it can be acquired significantly cheaper than that within the EU.

I've only been using Steam for about the last three months or so, but I've probably bought more games on it in that time than I have in the last five years combined due to the holiday sale.

For those of you who have been using Steam for a while, how often do they run sales like that? I don't mean where they have five or six discounted titles, but at least 20 or so.
