Even if these are hidden gems, we should wait to see if they become daily deals to save some money.

Made a quick program to skim all teh prices. Quite impressive, roughly 234 games have 75% off or higher!

The following are the top 10 discounts (All 80%), ordered by the savings in AUD:


Shadow Harvest: Phantom Ops
Star Ruler
Tidalis
Helldorado
Mata Hari
Dark Void™ Zero
Faerie Solitaire
Caster
Fable III
Trainz Simulator 2010: Engineers Edition

How many games aren't on sale? Roughly 105. Most are new, however there are some like Sin 1 and Race 07 that are quite old, yet have no discount!
