Just a heads up to Americans, certain games are getting bigger discounts on Amazon.com. Check under DRM for Steam titles. Downloadable games are only available to US customers though.

Hitman Absolution for $20, Darksiders 1-2 + all DLC for $13, there are some good deals.

DAMMIT VALVE! STOP TRYING TO MAKE ME SPEND MONEY >.<

I find my hand once again edging slowly towards 'add to cart'. I know I shouldn't but I just want Borderlands 2 so bad. Tempted to go for Hitman aswell.

EDIT: Valve just aren't playing fairly now. Every game on my wishlist (excluding DA2 and Crysis 2) is now on offer.

Harbin Crysis 2 is 50% off at the moment and was 75% off a couple of days ago.

Just a quick correction, Mirrors Edge is $2.50 USD not $5.00 USD

Huh... for some reason it isn't listing the price of it on the wishlist. Just the link to the store page.

Wat. I just double checked and it was $5. Valve's trying to rip me off with value! I'm conflicted.

Really? It might be because I'm in Australia, but then I was always under the impression Steam sales are standard across all countries based on US prices and time with the exception of prohibited games :S
Whats the base price you're getting bluexy? I'm seeing $9.99 USD base, discounted by 75% to $2.49 USD, offers expiring in approx 38 hours 30 min

EDIT: Actually scratch that, double checking over it, a couple of the prices are actually pretty different, Scribblenauts for me is $33.33 at 33% off, looks like the prices are localised :S

The prices are definitely localised. I'm in Germany atm and I'm having to use the web browser store and a university VPN to see the lower UK game prices. The differences are a lot greater than you'd expect!

But being in Germany, I can't check the store as frequently as I'd like! I'm pretty worried I'm going to miss the Walking Dead being 75% off or something... I'd be pretty gutted.
Valve always wait until I'm out of the country or otherwise busy to put on their amazing sales :(

Is Crysis 3 available on steam? I have a few games that are "not available in my region" so I'm wondering if that might be one of them Would much prefer the steam version over origin...

Even if the base prices are localised, I THINK the discounts are standard, so ATM Walking Dead is probably 50% off for you. I'm keeping an eye on it so if it goes to 75% I could PM you, not sure if that would help if your problem is internet access though Given the sales are 48 hours now, it should hopefully be a bit easier for you

Crysis 3 will be an Origin-exclusive for PC. EA isn't going to release their big new titles on a competitor's store.

TWD's 50% off is a community voted sale, so I doubt it'll get lower than that on Steam. You can probably find a better deal on other sites with Steam activation though.

Got the Saints Row 3 DLC pack for $5 (75% off) and Limbo 75% off as well as Toki Tori for $0.50 to gift to a friend haha. Got plenty of games from the recent humble bundles though.

Shit. I was going to buy Borderlands 2 a month ago, but put it off for the sale. Worked overtime the last few days and missed Borderlands 2 50% off. Was just too tired to remember to check Steam. Think it will hit 50% off soon? The last few days of sales are usually repeats, but man.... I finally have days off this week. But don't want to throw out $15 for just a couple days wait lol.
