So, we're expecting tomorrow to just be a rehash of everything already offered.  Right?

You mean there's one more day of sales? I thought it ended today at 1pm. Ugh.. There better not be anything I already bought for an even cheaper price.

Don't think I'll get anything today...  Kinda pissed that I bought Ion Assault less than 2 weeks ago for $4.99 mad
how is it mirage?

I like it, haven't played it much since Christmas...  Can't seem to get past the first boss though, lol  Lots of debris by the time I knock his shields off...  Still fun

bought it, can't play it.  apparently my card is too old.  oh hell.

It's usually the greatest hits form the previous days of the sale.  In case you missed something.

Didn't the sale in November end on the last day? So if it says Jan 2, it will end at 1pm on Jan 2. Maybe I am remembering wrong.

"Last Chance" deals... and for some reason getting the same "not available in your region" on those two.  icon_confused

I had the same thing showing on those two deals then after going to a game page and coming back I noticed the Stalker deal showed, but not the GTA IV one, then when clicking on the individual deal pages the GTA IV one showed up for $9.99. Must be some glitch with STEAM.

Is Left 4 Dead 2 worth it?  I didn't really like the first game on the 360; it seemed that most of the time my screen was just filled with zombies that I was having to bat away and didn't get much time to shoot them before I was swarmed.  Was it like that generally or did I just suck?

However I'm much more likely to do well on the PC and I have no doubt that it's fun playing co-op.  Random servers any good?

LFD2 is tempting as is Grotesque tactics.  Anyone try the later?

It's a decent, if generic, Japanese style TBS game in the vein of FF Tactics.  Unfortunately, it's also saddled with a horrific Engrish script and is a buggy mess.  Had to quit playing the third mission after completely random CTD's about every 20 minutes.  More thoughts here.  

I'd skip it, but I'm also very critical of SRPGs after playing so many good ones.  YMMV.

kinda annoyed that the Alien Breed Bundle never materialized.  Looking at their Steam forums I see a collection of all 3 is coming, so I'll just wait.  was tempted by Grotesue, but Gratch saved me the headaches.  there's a couple of games that are on sale that I was holding off in case they went daily that I'm going to grab though.

Much to my surprise, I bought nothing this year. This has more to do with my frustration at how poorly my old PC handles games than anything else.

While I am here can I rant about a little Steam niggle that continues to piss me off? Why can't it remember my age? I'm logging in when I browse Steam, so why in the hell can't you remember how old I am?!

Bioshock 2 (Amazon, not Steam) was my last purchase of the holiday season. I have to count up the haul and assess the damages - one thing is clear - I have plenty to play for a long time (not that it will stop me from checking the sales regularly). I fully expect to go through withdrawal tomorrow morning  icon_cry

I'm still very lukewarm overall about this year's sale.  There were far too many daily deal games in the $20-30 range, where if they were $10-15 I would have been all over them.

In it's defense, Grotesque might be worth $3 if you can get past the bugs.  There are a few good ideas there, but the random CTD's were the last straw for what I felt was a very mediocre game to begin with.  There's just many better SRPG's out there, that I couldn't see myself wasting any more time on that one.

Wolfenstein -  No sale at all stayed at the $40 price tag.
The Wheelman - on sale for $15 but if it were $10 then yes
James Bond: Bloodstone:  No Sale price either
