A quick Steam Autumn Sale Thank you...
Just in case Valve is reading this, just wanted to thank them once again for a great sale. Picked up Skyrim and Far Cry 3 for cheap. That should keep me busy for the long winter ahead. Thanks to Valve for making PC gaming so great!

I don't get it though, wasn't the sale supposed to be until the 3rd so why is there no sale today ? Not a big deal with the Winter sale soon enough but still

The sale ended today, Dec. 3 at 10 am West Coast time. So I think it's accurate.

The Autumn Sale definitely redeemed the underwhelming Summer Sale. There were a lot of great deals the likes that made Steam famous.

Is sale over? If anything i was expecting another flash sale a hour ago.

This was ridiculous, i had my money ready to buy all the game i wanted and they instantly removed everything, it clearly said until today, today means today not half of the freaking day, i'm terribly ♥♥♥♥ed off right now, i missed every game i wanted to buy and offer to my friends. I HATE valve now.

I didn't buy anything this time, but still appreciate the fantastic deals. Keep 'em coming Valve!
-also looking forward to the christmas sales :)

I'll also add to the thanks :-)

Moral of the story: You can't please everyone... On other forums we had people furious that nothing they wanted was on sale and if it was on sale it wasn't 90% off. The nerve of steam selling some things for 60-70% off.

It will be 2 weeks of FUN!

Let's just hope contagion and the assassins creed games are in those promotions as well, i only managed to get garry's mod for me and my friend and was about to get contagion for both of us and the assassins creed series for me to play when suddenly poof, everything gone..

I'm more looking forward to the winter sale in hopes of somethign other than coupons being in craft. Well that and Spelunky beaing a daily deal (I thought would be today) since I missed the flash sale.

i found the lack of continuity very disturbing , several items were in the sale only to be discounted more later in the autumn sale. i bought several games only to find them discounted more later on in the sale."double discounting" items in this way has made me very wary of trusting steam pricing in the future.

This is why the general rule is to wait for the game to be on a flash deal instead of a daily deal since usually the flash deals represent the biggest discount. I try to look at it as I'm paying the price I think is fair. If they lower it further later on, then I guess I wanted the game badly enough to spend extra on it.

It only really "stings" when you buy a game, it goes on sale for cheaper before you've even had a chance to download it, and then when you finally DO play it, it turns out to not live up to the hype.
