Bad Ratz is a hidden deal in the same way that finding a **** in your pocket for only fifty cents is a hidden deal. Someone might get excited by that, but not sane people.

Note that Amazon is price matching most of Steam's sale prices AND offers a $5 coupon each time you buy a game. Coupons maybe be used on "Editors Choice" games in January. Last year they had a really nice selection of stuff you could use the coupons on.

Especially if the game is Steam activated anyway (and Amazon makes a good effort to provide Steam versions), you might be better off buying from Amazon if you're in the US. You'll be activating it on Steam anyway and getting the coupon.

You might have to wait a little bit for Amazon to get the price match up so if a deal is fading fast, obviously grab it from who you can while you can.

I don't see time limits on them, so the sales should still be up when you get home.

I would wait for tomorrow's Amazon sale where you can get it and the season pass for $20, most likely it will have a Steam code.

Good call then assuming the additional content is worth it; I don't care about Steam activation. I'm not buying it anyway, just passing it along.

Speaking of games with insane download sizes, you can get a boxed copy of Rage for $4.99 with free shipping from NewEgg rather than do the 25GB download.

New Steam Sales are up while the ones from yesterday are still good for another 24 hrs.

Portal 2 for $5
ARMA 2: Combined Operations for $15
Max Payne 3 for $15
Awesomenauts for $3.40
Sleeping Dogs for $25
Prototype 2 for $20

The Season Pass for Max Payne 3 is $7.50, so it's only $2-$3 total more if you can't wait for tomorrow's Amazon deal.

They have a Max Payne 3 collection for $20, it's the game and the Season Pass.

Sleeping Dogs and Prototype are terrible "deals" compared to the price points they've been at within the last week.

I guess Arma II can finally start coming down in price now that they're going to have the stand-alone zombie game anyway and everyone will buy that.

Max Payne 3 is $11.86 at GamersGate with the 5% G2PO voucher code. Not Steam. With various discounts and trickery, I got it for $9.00 Smiley: smile
