So this is the Spring Sale?
That sucks. Was hoping to load up on some real games. Who in their right mind is going to wade through 1000 crap games.(no question mark nowadays).1000 crap games is a total waste of valuable bandwidth. No wonder Steam is getting laggy it servers are constantly vomitting!

As far as I'm concerned, Steam could shove that whole section along with the even stupider " pay us to be a beta tester series". If that idea flys then it proves that people are idiots.

Update: Okay, there had never been a spring sale. Check. Some of these games do look intersting and "crap" maybe an unfair pronoun. Still think the early release is a flawed concept.

Another Update: Bikes gave me a list of games to looks at. Here is what I thought of some of them.

Limbo - very nice looking game. looks like it might be fun to play.

Trine 2 - another nice looking game with neat puzzles.

So I was wrong in my initial reaction to these games. Some of them look pretty nice and fun to play.

I musta woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I started two posts today and have ended up doing a 180 on both posts.

A lot of these are really good games, actually. I haven't checked all of the ones on sale because there are just too many, but I have spotted a few on there that are an absolute steal at their current price. :)

I think that is called garbage picking and not stealing. Years ago Steam sold real games during the spring sale so having the real games excluded because of these crap imitations is some cheap a** way of still having a spring sale, yet offer nothing.

Sorry to hear that there is nothing there that interests you :(. I suppose it depends on what your definition of a "real game" is.

If they had of ran their regular titles for Spring Sale like they did last year I might of found something. This is just Steam being cheap a** this year. Crap Sale.

No need to be so upset. The Steam sales in general are pretty good.

Thanks. I'll take a look at it. Was looking forward to the spring sale with a few choice titles in mind. Got pretty dissapointed when I realized that wasn't happening, but I'm over it now.

Good thing they have a search bar.

There has never been a big spring sale. The only big sales have been christmas and summer sales. The indie sale is no different from the Ubisoft sale earlier.

Valve / Steam doesn't set the prices. They also can't put games on sale unless the developers allow it.

If any game on your wishlist is indicative of what you're looking for, you're quite delusional. Most of them are 1-2 moths old. You can't seriously expect a 75% off a 30 days old game.

I don't know how many times I've had to say this to people complaining about paying to beta test, but....

What ever happened to the concept of giving the people that are helping you develop a game a free copy of the game? Hello? These people are helping you!

Why would they give me a free copy when I and many others are willing to pay for it? I got to play the game while it was in devolopement and watch it grow. I also got the game for cheaper because I bought it while in beta/alpha.

That is something big developers, with the backing of a publisher, can do.

These are indi developers why have a very limited budget. Many tend to work part time while working a full time job, untill the project gets off the ground. Selling a game in the alpha/beta stage allows them to focus more on making the game. They can't afford to give copies away, and any money they make after the game is released will most likely all go into making another game.
