Just keep refreshing, it is pretty hit and miss right now, but I have managed to get through on most pages. They also have quick 30 min sales which are cool, and you can vote on which games go on sale next.

Nice to see the sale finally start. It's going to be kind of hard to keep track of all the deals, though. Each flash deal has different ending times, and I assume they will be replaced with new deals as they end. Then there's the Community Choice sales which are on a totally different schedule... D:

I might pick up Deus Ex: HR for $7.50. I was also hoping to get Rayman Origins, but $15 isn't a very impressive discount.

I don't see anything like that yet. They apparently have "fun activities" scheduled though, so who knows what'll happen.

I know... It's like they want to ruin our lives for the next 11 days. All these timed sales are going to be horrendous for my productivity.

I found the entire AC collection for only $50, but it lasts the duration of the sale so I might stay patient and see if there is a better timed deal later.

Oh wow.. I just realized the timers for the flash sales are shown in hours not minutes I was like "damn, I am going to have to check this every 20 minutes!" That is a moderate relief.

I think I decided against DE:HR. I've tried and tried and tried to become interested in that game but it just looks boring to me. And the worst part is, it's not the gameplay; it's the presentation. It's just so flat and sterile and gray with a constant pale yellow tint. It's one of the least attractive looking games I've seen in a while. To quote Antonio...

Well, I got SpaceChem... Dunno about bigger titles like Assasin's Creed games, I figure since the first one ended up on GOG, I might as well wait for the rest; it's not like I'm in a hurry or anything.

BTW, watchathink of the new steam accomplishments/badges/whatchamacallits aka achivements 2.0?

I've been pleasantly surprised with the sale so far. Steam's mega-sales are always spectacles, but I would usually only walk away with 2-3 games total. In the first day of the sale alone, I've already made 3 purchases:

Hard Reset - $3.75
Saints Row The Third - $12.50
Trine 2 - $3.75

And there are still several more games I'd like to pick up. I was really surprised Saints Row won the first Community Choice vote. I thought it would be the least desirable of the three games they had up, but it was the one I really wanted, so that's pretty awesome.

It's kinda neat that it logs your participation in Steam sales, but it also seems pretty pointless. It's a little underwhelming compared to the massive treasure hunt events they had for the previous sales.

How about Deus Ex: HR for $7.00? Maybe that $0.50 will be the breaking point

Anyway, so far all I have purchased is SS: Double D for a measely $2.71. I am sure there will be more, just need the right game to come along. At the very least I will be getting the Assassin's Creed series for $50 if a better deal doesn't come along between now and the end of the sale.

Does anyone here actually get games gifted to them?
Seems like something that would only happen to people who have actual friends on their friends list.

In other words, I'm surprised it happens.

I believe it fairly frequent, and I have gifted games to others in the past.

I think the greatest indicator for gifts is the large presence of 4-pack games available on Steam. That way you get a good deal, get the game for yourself and gift the other 3 copies.


Continuing with the thread, my list is slowly growing, have the feeling that by the end of the sale I will have enough of a backlog to last the next year
Serious Sam: Double D
Saints Row 3: Season Pass DLC
Payday: The Heist

Yes. I'd say half the games I own were gifted to me.

Nope. You just tend to get worked up over stuff for no reason.
