Hm, I never did play Age of Empires 3. Anyone know if it has a decent single-player campaign?

KOTOR 1 and 2 were both 75% off so I bought them. 5.00 well spent IMO. Assuming I play them.  why so serious?

It's ok. Other two campaigns are better than the original campaign, but I found them worth $10 easily for the "Complete" version.

And why is this?  I've never done this Autumn Sale thing...I presume the prices get cheaper as the sale goes on? 

Am looking at picking up the GTA IV Complete pack.  It doesn't appear to be either part of a Flash or Daily deal.

Very often, a game that is -25/33 or even 50% off at first, at SOME point in the sales will get even further discount.
Sucks to buy Skyrim at -33% Day one then find out day 5 they decided to go CRAaaaAAzzzzY and do a -75% sale

It's soild Steam Sale advise to hold off on non-dailies.

I'm headed out of town for the weekend; so glad they put Xcom up for sale.  I had enough Steam credit to cover almost the whole thing except $5.00, which is awesome.  I think I've got all my 2012 games now, with the exception of upcoming Far Cry 3, which will have to wait until I have a better rig.

I find it kind of hilarious that AoE III's normal price on Steam is still $40  for a three-year-old collection of a seven-year-old game and its nearly as old expansions.

It's like when 3DRealms was still charging $50 for Duke Nukem 3D on their page's store back in like 2007.

"Rage" or "Dead Island" ? (deal expiring in less than seven hours as I write this)

Some people really like Dead Island, but I didn't care for it. "Something else" is a pretty good option.

I thought Dead Island was pretty fun; it's sort of a Borderlands with Zombies, except with melee weapons instead of guns.

Dead Island is also much better if you play it co-op rather than solo.

Hoping to pick up Dishonored and the Skyrim DLC, if either go sufficiently on sale. They're both slightly discounted already, so it's just a matter of catching them when they're on a daily or flash.

Amazon is having a lightning sale of Dishonored for $25 from 1:10pm to 5:10pm PST.

About last year: anyone remembers if, among the "most wanted" titles, some were *discounted* during the autumn sale but NOT during the Xmas one? (because, hey, remember that you can keep your wallet safe for a few more weeks if you don't want to purchase anything right now :P)

I pretty much have all the games I want (plus a few more cuz at $2.00 or free at steamgifts why the heck not?) I'm just waiting on XCom to go on sale for 50+% off. I'm thinking I may be waiting awhile.

It seems Steam has pity on my poor soul and doesn't let me buy games during this sale. Starting with Max Payne 3, I get a transaction error when trying to pay.

Loving this new "Stop buying games you will never play just because they are cheap" feature.

Sadly, I was able to buy Age of Empires 3 and Rage before this Common Sense feature kicked in.  awesome, for real

Got a lot of praise back in it's day on XBLA. Looks neat, never played.

I will pile it into the "want to love it, because" bin alongside "will never play more than 5-10 minutes of this"

FWIW you can get it even cheaper ($2) at GOG currently.

Got lucky (or unlucky, depending on viewpoint...) and got internet connection back just in time for this.

Already ignored the "start of sale" advice and picked up Walking Dead for a tenner. awesome, for real

Gamersgate had Dishonored for 50% off so I went for that because I can benefit from paying in GBP. On Steam, I couldn't resist Prototype 2. I adored the first game because it has some of the same writers as the Call of Cthulhu tabletop RPG spinoff Delta Green, the best campaign setting known to man.

Well I picked up the Skyrim DLC since it was 50% off, or at least it said it was!

Dawnguard was $10 and Hearthfire was $2.50. For some reason when the purchase went through it became $13.00 for Dawnguard and $3.something for hearthfire. Odd, but it's $3 and I make good money so fuck it.

Looks like it charged you the previous 33% off price it was this morning. When my roommate decided to buy me the 2 dlcs for $16.xx as he bought them for himself.

Never buy anything that's not a daily deal until the last day of a steam sale.
