Steam Xmas Sales Should start in about an hour.
Got GTA4 for like £4 last xmas sale so hopefully will be some good ones this year too!
The site is getting hammered
There are over 9000 reductions aparently
A few that have been spotted are
Battlefield Bad Company 2 = £6
They will go up on there eventually but the site is being killed. Probably best to wait i'd say.
Ffs, gonna end up spending loads.
Or maybe not. Got GTA3, GTA Vice City, Battlefield Bad company 2 and Rome Total War for £18.55.

They have Super Meat Boy for £3, it only released the other day and has a 90% metacritic score. It is a great game and is well addictive. Fear 2 for £2.49 is pretty good too!
Hopefully FM11 gets put in the daily deals as still not picked it up yet.
how long does the sale last?
The sale lasts until 2nd of January.
But there are 2 types of sales. You got the titles that will stay reduced until the 2nd. Which tend to be older games. Then you got the daily sales which are newer games or games with a big reduction and that lasts only 24hrs. The new ones get put up at 6pm every day until the 2nd.
Because the games are digital copies not physical ones. And the various publishers know that the steam sales are really popular so they try and out do each other. Which is great for us!
Almost not worth downloading them illegally when they're that cheap!
They got the new Aliens Vs Predator as part of todays deals for about £3. Surely the game must be worth at least that?
Just Cause 2 for a fiver and Bully for £2.50 is pretty awesome too!
AVP is worth it for that price, just for the alien campaign.
Steam summer sales started yesterday so thought would give people a heads up! These are normally better then the xmas ones as they have a whole load of them each day.
Got Elder Scrolls Oblivion game of the year edition for a fiver, not bad!
The Valve pack of
Team Fortress Classic,
Team Fortress 2,
Day of Defeat,
Half-Life: Opposing Force,
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero,
Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes,
Half-Life: Blue Shift,
Day of Defeat: Source,
Half-Life 2: Deathmatch,
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast,
Half-Life Deathmatch: Source,
Half-Life 2: Episode One,
Half-Life 2: Episode Two,
Left 4 Dead,
Left 4 Dead 2,
for £24.99 is pretty awesome too
mmmmm spending spreeeeee!
Xmas sale started today, time to be even poorer again
Dunno it counts as a sale price but I couldnt say no to FM12 at 20 quid
Some terrorists not happy the steam summer sale has not started yet......
fm12 is £4.99 in the flash sale in case anyone is interested
just bloody missed fm12 by 5mins
Xmas sale should start tonight hopefully. This is the big one.
Hoping fm13, xcom, far cry 3 and Assassins creed 3 get decent discounts
I am very out of the loop when it comes to games. Are there any games in the sale similar to Age of Empires?
I would say the Total War series was similar. They will be in the steam sales no doubt about it and will be cheap. I'd recomend Shogun 2 and Empire. But if you want more ancient era go for Medieval 2 or Rome. You can't go wrong with those games!
Or Civilization 5.
Cheers, I played the medieval one ages ago and loved it but the graphics kept crashing. Do you need any special graphics card to play them or would any with a new laptop be enough? (pretty high spec work one but doubtful graphics card is any good).
Maybe time to pick up Skrim this holiday then!
I'm no computer expert but I imagine you do need a decent ish pc to play them. At least the newer ones will as they are very detailed. But I think for Rome total war you should be ok. I imagine civ 5 should be ok too.

There are a few more i'm hoping for like the new F1 game, Rayman Origins, Walking dead series, lego batman 2, Darksiders 2, Sleeping dogs, Dark Souls games, Torchlight 2, Dishonured, Hitman etc. Maybe pick up Resident Evil 6 if it is under a fiver....
The Call of duty games normally get their sale on xmas eve or xmas day. The old rule is never buy something that is not in the daily deal section because chances are it will be a daily deal eventually and be even cheaper.
Just looking down my list of games I've got this year and these are probably worth a purchase if they are heavily discounted:
Rayman Originals (St Marco reminded me!)
Duke Nukem Forever (need a meaty machine)
Peggle Deluxe (love it!)
Portal 2 (or if you can get both Portals for a good price)
Mind you, there are some decent games to install first if you want freebies:
Trackmania (racing game)
Team Fortress 2
Just noticed getgames are doing Batman Arkham city goty edition for £4.99
Sure it will be in steam sale for around £3.75 so probably better to wait though

If my computer wasn't so abysmal i'd be snapping loads of these up. Not really worth it with my piece of sh*t PC though.
If Im not mistaken the first lot have just gone on sale...
Skyrim 1/3 off at £23.32
Borderlands 2 discounted too
And football manager 2013 now £19.99
And Civ V for under a tenner... why do I need to always buy a game as soon as it comes out?! ;(
Remember though don't buy any unless they are in the flash sale as eventually they will get put in flash deals. If you buy something that isnt in there yet you run the risk of it getting discounted further.
Last year they had FM12 for around a tenner.
They change every 10 hours so just keep checking back. You can also vote for certain deals to be put up. Like right now you can vote for either Limbo, Braid or Monkey Island. All three of those games are amazing and will be major cheap i.e £2
Monkey Island for £1.74 - woo hoo
Got a smoking hot deal here for sleeping dogs limited edition
Go to greenmangaming, put game in cart, add code GMG30-DPLIM-DN831 at checkout. Select £3 cashback means it works out at .......£4. Or choose the £4 credit option and works out at £3. Awesome!
It is activated on steam so hence counts as steam sale
got the F1 2013 game and Civ Gods and Kings upgrade both for $23....decent enough.
