Not sure if I'm late to the game, but I did notice that Mafia II for the US just dropped from $49 to $29 (crosses fingers for another 75% off sale)

Had a price drop in the US after the Christmas sale.

I paid the full $15 when it came out. It was well worth it. Problem was I didn't get it from Steam, instead I got it from the Capcom store. I'm thinking of buying it here, but 1.) I don't need it right now since I'm still focused on Last Remnant, 2.) this would mean I paid $20 since I'd be buying it twice.

I'll just wait for Rearmed 2 and hope the pre-order gives Rearmed 1 for free.

That’s probably the safest bet.

Soon Halloween will be regionally restricted and I will have to hide my pumpkins from the Police.

So yeah, thumbs up for the "a sale is a sale." Let them make as many sales as they want, sure hasn't done me no harm. Well... apart from me being broke and only eating bread for a couple of weeks.

Solution: Let Valve add a box to Steam which says: "If you do not wish to see holiday sales from holidays which orignated from outside your own country, then please check here." Their loss, not mine. I see no reason why I shouldn't be able to get a sale because of this. Or at least I do not see it as enough of a reason.

Too bad there probably won't be many more of these big sales, well atleast this big. Like "The Steam exclusive monthly sale!" or something, since people would just stop buying so much, they'd get too used to the sales and have no reason to "grab'em while you can," which would obviously be bad for business.

To be fair, that would exclude Halloween if you're American, too

I can only think of one major holiday that originated in America: Thanksgiving. There might be more, but I don't know em.

Easter = spring sale, 4th July = Summer sale, Halloween = Autumn sale, Black Friday = ???, Christmas = Holiday sale.

Why care anyways about what the sale is called, its not like calling a sale a religious holiday sale means it has anything to do with religion. I'm sure there are Muslims, Jews, Atheists, and others who give and receive Christmas gifts.
