Not bought anything since Steam dropped the dailies and flash sales. Bought loads when that style of sale was in force.

What if a game's discount price= the price it would've been as a daily/flash?
Lately most of the deep discounts haven't been on the good stuff. Most games I really want seem to be more like 20-40% off.

Im one of those terrible people that don't play many indie games.

Looking forward to any kind of Thumper discount because of the SteamVR support that was recently patched in. Tyranny and Planet Coaster; I'd be set. Here’s hoping!

I have a feeling if you have steam friends who also idlemaster it would have already done that
I double checked and all the games I can idle have good reputations. IDLEMASTER AWAAAAAAAAY!

If it's the same as the autumn sale I'm probably not going to buy much. I might get Ducktales: Remastered in case it gets removed. Dirt Rally maybe, but I need a better gfx card first. I'm still looking forward to the sale even if my expectations is at an all time low.

Hitman complete Steam version is $15 at GameStop I think
Haha. I was just putting it in the cart over there.

So yeah. Planet coaster now lol.

I need to buckle down and finish Forza, Gears, Deus Ex, Dishonored 2 and many more but I lack self control.

Can we have one Seal thread where everyone isn't complaining that all games aren't 75% off or they miss the dailies.

I used to buy so much more when there were daily/flash sales and so it seems did others. Did it really help their business to stop doing it? I know it has to do with the return policy implementation (I think) but I can't help thinking they ended up losing more sales in this decision than anything else.

Most things I want came out this year so I'm doubting there will be any good deals for those. Excited either way

Every day is Steam Sale day on the dozens of sites selling keys in 2016.

50% off the highest prices online doesn't really generate the excitement it used to.

nAH IT runs fine for me, no need to do the skip and close thing unless you want to get cards faster.
Just letting it idle a game for 2 or so hours still yields cards last I tried :X

A browser extension with loads of quality of life features.

Just to give an example, go to your Wishlist after installing enhanced steam and you can arrange your wishlisted games by Percentage to see their discounts which helps in your buying decisions.
E. Steam also lets you know where a game is being sold cheapest at.
Wow, that is awesome. I will install that as soon as I get home. Does it all revolve around your wish list? I only have 5 on it .... I just started back into Steam again (new GPU/Monitor)

No, it works on any game's page. The browsing filters are also useful as they let you hide games you already own, ones that aren't discounted, ones that have mixed or negative ratings, etc.
