The servers are having all sorts of issues and some prices are showing incorrectly or not reflecting in the shopping carts. So you may want to wait a little bit before grabbing something.

Rift and Portal are a bit of a ripoff, I got them both for free. Portal 2 is a deal though, I knew I should have held out on that one, but when I paid $14.95 a couple months back it seemed like such a good price.

The fact that they've given Portal out for free as a promotion a few times in no way makes it a "rip off" for $2.50. It's a fantastic game for $2.50 and would be more higher prices than that.

Rift on the other hand might be a rip-off, I dunno.

Well, you can trade your coupon to someone else for another coupon, lol. I got myself a -25% valve and a -50% rockstar but I don't see myself using them ever.

50% off a Valve game here. The funny thing is if you take a look at the Valve section of the store, all of them are already 50% off. That could make for cheap game if I had any interest in buying any of the games that I don't already own.

Coupons can't be used until Jan 2nd. So you can't stack with current sales.

They also expire March 1st, which seems rather quick. Makes me wonder if they have something slated for a spring release and they don't want to cut into their profits on it.

Either way, getting a coupon feels awful since you're guaranteed that the game you want will be on sale anyway. I got a Valve 50% off which is useless since I own nearly the entire catalog.

While we're on the subject of Valve, the TF2 Christmas event is going on right now. There is a new CP map, a new set of gear for Engineer and Pyro, and for the first week, double droprates. I've picked up all sorts of good loot the last couple of days.

Did an objective from Orcs Must Die, and Steam gifted me.. a non-tradable Portal 2 cosmetic item which I already own. I can do literally nothing with it.

Did the Orcs Must Die objective, and got a free game. Not bad.

The initial gift I got was a lump of coal, though. As tempting as it is to save them up for the entries into the contest (the grand prize is literally every flipping game on Steam) it makes more sense to just combine 7 into a non-coal prize.

My big dilemma is what 10 games do i I put on my wish list just in case.

I'm already up to 5 coals, and a 50% off valve coupon.


Side note : People buying the humble indie bundle for 1 penny over and over on alt accounts to "farm" coal disgusts me.
(not that it will do them any good, I suppose valve has away to see who traded what what, and realizes some guy didnt just make dozens of friends willing to give him all their coal)

I might get The Heist. Haven't decided. I've heard others speak well of the Mount & Blade series. Apparently "Warband" is the one to get.

I didn't care much for Arkham Asylum (controls kind of sucked in my opinion) so I'm in no rush to get Arkham City.

If you get a Stalker game, get Shadow of Chernobyl and download the "Complete 2009" mod for it.

I played the Heist demo on PS3, pretty good but very short. There are only 6 missions for the game, with randomized objectives for each one. Gets boring pretty fast even with Co-Op, wait till it goes for $5 or less.

I own it and it's fun, but.. I don't know if I missed something early on, but I have no idea what I'm intended to be doing. I just spend my time running around with an army, slaughtering bandits and other countries' soldiers. If there's a story, or an objective I should be going for, I have no idea what it is.

Limbo is supposed to be pretty good, I went ahead and picked it up. I (regretfully) already have Torchlight, which I can't enjoy very much. ME1/2 I own, and Brink was such a disappointment that I wouldn't even play it for free. Everything else I've either never heard of or have no interest in.

I have to wonder if the actual quality of these sales is going down, or if most long-time Steam users just happen to already own all the good stuff.

I feel like a little from column A and a little from column B.

But this is going to be a two week sale (assuming they go through Jan 1 as their gift/achievement thing suggests) so I guess they can't put out all their "A" material right away.

It just feels so endlessly repetitive to me, like a poor man's Diablo 2. All I ever do in it, no matter which class I pick, is autoattack and occasionally use a skill if that doesn't feel fast enough. There's a bunch of different enemy types, but they basically all behave the same, so I never even notice what I'm fighting. There's just no challenge in it.

sounds like a problem with the genre, because thats how all the dungeon crawlers i've played are.

Agree to disagree, I suppose. I've played dungeon crawlers where that wasn't the case (such as Diablo 1 and 2). Torchlight suffers from an overbearing lack of variety in my opinion.

couple hours left on divinity 2: dks! pretty awesome rpg; it's got random loot and item sets where the pieces are mostly behind little puzzles and stuff, not random finds.

i decided to update skyrim before getting into a new mage character. freaking steam! started updating 6 different games (around 500mb) with a combined playtime of about 2 hours before even listing skyrim's 51mb update. my connection sucked so pausing or uninstalling through steam caused it to lag out.

picked up me2 and dungeons of dredmor.
