    Looking for Skyrim Legendary again. Last time the cheapest was $20.xx so I guess that is as good as it gets this year.

    I take it you haven't played Skyrim yet? I'm probably the biggest supporter of the game on HTF. I've played it more than any other since it came out TWO YEARS AGO. I've long forgotten what the main storyline is, thanks to countless high-quality extra content is available for the game. If $20 bucks is as good as it gets, it's WELL worth the price!

    It started at 1 PM. That's usually when they update the site. I'm not impressed so far...

    I'm hoping for Stanley Parable at $4.99. I'll snag it! otherwise, waiting. Also, Dragon's Lair, etc for $4.99 each or less.

    gog.com was having some great deals on older stuff.

    amazon has Alien col Marines and London Winter Games 2012 for $1.99 each right now. Both have steam keys.

    Saints Row IV thank you pack dlc is FREE

    Shame the Bioshock pass is back up to $20. I would have snatched that and the main game.

    So much for me thinking this was a "meh" sale! Thanks to Sam's links, I've already "treated" myself to about $125 of games (list to follow later), and I know I'll be buying more!

    The Sleeping Dogs collection on steam has the main game and all the DLC. I'd heard that, took and chance, and sure enough it is all there. Great deal at about $8.

    I've picked up a few small things here and there.
    Startopia. $1.40 from greenmangaming
    The Bridge. $1.50 from steam
    Spectromancer + DLC $2 from amazon
    And some I can't remember... a couple of bundles...

    Finally, Skyrim on flash sale til 5am EST. I wondered if it would be on sale before Xmas. It has been a weak sale to me. Nothing I really want and even very little I already own (so at least it would be the kind of games I would buy).

    So is Skyrim really good? I recently got on board the Steam train for Counter Strike and have been wondering about these other games. Is it worth a "blind buy" so to speak?

    Skyrim is insanely good. If you love the material you can climb in that game world for hours and hours. Almost as deeply as ...well, that other game I won't mention. It starts with an "M".

    So... Chivalry eh? okay then. :wacko:
