    As tradition entails, every year, a great horror will arise. It preys on the wallets of the world, gutting their precious green innards and leaving only an empty shell. This horror, of course, is the Steam Halloween Sale.


    The sale, which prowls the night from this night onwards, has some scary deals. It holds mostly horror or scary games, such as Amnesia, Alan Wake, FEAR, Plants vs. Zombies, and Bioshock in its clutches, offering them at devilishly low prices. The full list of its victims can be seen below.​
    Pick up these games while you still can... Or else.​

    It's always nice when a game on your wishlist gets a price reduction. LIMBO for £1.74? Sold!

    Nice try, Gaben. I'm not falling for your schemes this time! My money will stay firmly in my wallet.

    I'd make a "Steam Sale Before Christmas" joke and photoshop Gaben onto Jack Skellington, but... yeah, that isn't going to work.

    Tyvm for the heads-up, I didn't notice it already despite being on Steam almost 24/7 nowaway. So far, all these titles have already been on sale the past 2 months, even for -75%. Only good deal atm IMHO is OMD2, and even that is relative because you can bet on it they'll go -75% in December.
    OMD 1 was on -75% sale for over 3 weeks last summer, just crazy, the developers really discount their games a lot.

    Hopefully we see another Skyrim -50% sale or so, that game is just so great + there's loads of demand.

    Also, if anyone wants to buy a game from Steam, I can usually get them a little cheaper. Eg; Dead Space pack is 10 USD atm, I can get it for 8. Just saying ;)

    Got them coupons,. but basically all you need is the code PEAH8R, and you can redeem it tomorrow at the website. Hopefully we'll be able to redeem it through Steam anyways

    Beat me to it.
    I just hope I don't have the same activation troubles as I did with Bejeweled 2.

    Damn...I just purchased Rock of ages a month ago. It was very much worth its money then (it's pretty much a must for Monty Python fans). Now it's on sale (75% off), it's practically a steal.

    Looks like a lot of what's on sale is stuff I've already picked up during previous sales.

    I picked up Rage, couldn't resist. I do hope that they fixed the bugs in the game though, I heard it was pretty bad.
