    alright it's that time of year again. the big sale is starting up

    here's a few of the games on sale right now... will update as more get discounted...

    super meat boy 3.75$
    bad company 2 for 10.19$ (price varies by region)
    amnesia for 10$
    deus ex pack for 3$
    prince of persia forgotten sands for 5$

    thq complete pack for 50$
    square enix/eidos pack for 75$
    valve complete pack for 25$
    2k pack for 80$

    since the steam website usually gets hammered during this sale, another decent site to browse through all the deals is

    They still haven't posted an official announcement, but the prices are already live. I'm kinda raging about having pre-ordered Super Meat Boy for $10, then this sale offering it for 1/3rd of that even. $25 for the complete Valve pack is insane, and I'd be all over that if I didn't already own most of it. Will be picking up Half Life 1 though. Been waiting for that to go on sale again since the summer. Now that I've read that there are daily deals though, I have a feeling I just overpaid for it...

    A LIST OF THE FIRST 100 GAMES WITH THE BIGGEST DISCOUNTS CAN BE FOUND BY SCROLLING TO THE BOTTOM OF THE STEAM HOMEPAGE, FINDING THE SECTION THAT READS "NEW RELEASES / TOP SELLERS / COMING SOON / SPECIALS" AND CLICKING ON THE "SPECIALS" TAB. It's a damn long list. Some discounts are sale wide, while others are 'daily deals' and will be gone by the next day. The sale lasts until January 2nd. Go NUTS!

    Oh kickass! I played the SMB demo on XBLA and was waiting to purchase it. Pfft, i'm working towards it as we speak (and steam is SLOOOOOOOOOW in loading.)

    I both love and loath huge steam sales. (such good deals... and bye-bye to expendable income!)

    Dangit, and I just got myself €20 for Steam holiday sales,a fter a friend convinced me that I should not play it safe by getting €25. Now I miss out on all Half-life titles plus Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 for €10 more.
    Anyway, every smaller Valve pack is 50% off, and I spent some of my money on CS complete. Is Poker Night at the Inventory any good?

    I think the steam servers are reaching critical mass.

    $25 for Valve complete pack?

    I already own L4D, L4D2, Garry's Mod, TF2, CS:S, and HL2: Deathmatch, but it's still worth it.

    EDIT: I'll probably actually just buy Portal, HL2 and the episodes, and maybe HL: Source.

    Ended up buying Half Life 1 (Partly to complete my storyline, partly for that naruto mod)
    F.E.A.R pack, something tells me I'm going to regret that. (F.E.A.R 1 alone is 16gb wtf)

    Not looking forward to spending even more tomorrow ._.

    Heard about the valve back being $24.99 for like 15 minutes (86% discounted) but by the time some people went to check-out it was bumped back up to $49.99. Oh the time of the year to pick up our wallets and legally buy the games we've pirated in the past year XD

    Edit: Also, this should be helpful for those having trouble browsing the steam-site due to traffic: http://www.steamgamesales.com/?sort=title&order=desc

    I've got a feeling that the Half Life games are gonna end up being one of the daily deals, and thus even cheaper. It wouldn't hurt to wait a few days and see.
