Time to get Idlemaster to Idle the 100+ games in your library that have cards.
Just don't go selling them for shit cheap chump change, you're ruining the card selling economy for the rest of us ya lazy bums!

I had no idea that programs like Idlemaster were even a thing. It's dumb and amazing at the same time.
You get 'free' Gaben Dollars don't see what's so dumb about that :p Enhanced Steam also shows what's the cheapest price you are guaranteed to sell card or icon for too so using both jshackles' projects together leads to the best buying experience~

I hardly bought anything during the Autumn Sale outside of games that were at their cheapest that were on my wishlist.
This Winter Seal, I'm going all in.

steam sales havent been good in a while. they do little more than simply match the prices you could have bought the game at since release on cdkeys or sometimes even gmg

I think they need to start getting more aggressive with the sales again. It seemed like a lot of physical sales were better for many of the games. I saw Dying Light (the full edition one) for 20 over black friday weekend but Steam was 30.

steam sales been kinda junk last few big ones. I've not bought a big game on steam in like a year. All my money now go to amazon and best buy instead. Console physical games had some good sales

I hope that new Age of Empires expansion gets a 10% discount or something, but I'd be fine if it didn't.

Other than that, I don't know what else to get, I'd like to get Planet Coaster but it's too new for a heavy discount. Maybe I'll get Cities Skylines or that new Euro Truck DLC.

Yep. I've barely bought anything during sales since they did away with daily and flash sales. Theres no reason to get excited and check the store every day. It has stopped a lot of impulse buying, so can't complain.
Yeah, sales used to be interesting. Now there isn't a lot to differentiate Steam Sales from others except for little minigames that I never cared about back when the sales were good.

I don't miss dailies.
I don't need to check steam every 6? 8? whatever hours just to doublecheck I can't find something I want for marginally less than its regular sale price, or feel like I missed out.

I do miss their metagames though.
