I couldn't download the latest patch yesterday, so went with the one before it. Turns out it was a corrupted download problem with Firefox which I've now fixed. Will I need to redownload/install Bloodlines or can I run the patch over the top of the previous one?

Flash is Trine 2 £2.99 6hrs, also Trine for £1.74 and Dead Island £6.79 8hrs.

I do hope the daily deals today are new and not the usual recaps.

Did you guys all play Dear Esther with the subtitles on? I'm not about to claim it was the finest poetic work this side of Modernism or anything, but I really didn't have a problem with the narration once I turned them off (I did find the subtitles annoying while I had them on for the first five minutes). If you just wander around and let whatever bits of talking happen to make an impression on you stick, then I think it works really well.

Off or on the writing is terrible. Like a D grade GCSE English Lit student writing poetry to his unrequited love. It's such a shame, as the story it has to tell and how it tells it is very intriguing. I'd like to see a mod where the narration is cut out altogether, or redone by someone with literary skill.

Added the trine series to my list. Had a look at garry's mod cos I wasn't sure what it was; then saw that it was bundled with counter-strike: source at £3.74, when CS on its own was about twice as much. Glad I checked: bought!

I guess either I totally disagree and think people are being overly judgemental about it for some reason I've not grasped, or maybe just for me the stuff it was trying was interesting enough that I wasn't bothered by whatever mis-steps there were in the line-by-line detail. Either that or I have a much higher threshold for the stuff you're finding objectionable!

Not showing for me.

They show for me as the announcement when you log in, but not on the main page.

You can search for them though.

Think I'm safe in the last day (Other than Lego Batman which is £13 in the "normal" sale I was waiting for better on)

Are you the santas boyfriend who used to post at cook'd and bomb'd and who I briefly met at glastonbury one year? I've a feeling I've asked you this before :lol:

No, although I did lurk there a long time ago when they were assembling decent-quality versions of the Chris Morris R1 music show and the like :)

The final deals aren't very exciting (for me, anyway). Then again, I've definitely spent more than I intended to over the course of the sale so maybe that's not such a bad thing...

So, this is the last day, the traditional time to scoop up those bits that didn't show in a daily so what are folk looking at?

For me, Waves (http://store.steampo...1_7_suggest__13) at 70% off. Basically, you can't buy Geom Wars 2 for PC so this is a close approximation. Will probably give that a punt.

NBA 2k12 (http://store.steampo...1_7_suggest__13) at 50% off but I suspect I'll be very much alone in wanting this having sunk 70+ hours into 2k11.

MLB 2k11 (http://store.steampo...1_7_suggest__13) at 50% off. Last Summer Sale I bought the aforementioned NBA game on a whim and it turned into one of the best games I've ever played in any genre. I'll give this one a punt.

What are you looking at that I might have overlooked?

Is Jagged Alliance any good? I have very fond memories of the earlier games.. how does this latest compare. Can't say I've seen any reviews ( which should say it all really).

Other than that looks like I'm safe.. Unless Sim City 4 pops back up as a flash sale.

The only thing I've scooped up has been the Deus Ex DLC, as I'm about to give it another playthrough and figured I might like to play The Missing Link. There are other things I'd like, but I've already spent more than I can justify this sale, so I'm going to ignore them.

Blades of Time - Limited Edition

Grand Theft Auto Complete Pack

Darkness II

The Walking Dead

Batman Arkham City: Harley Quinn

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine - Dreadnought Assault and Chaos Unleashed Map Pack

Sam and Max: Seasons 1-3

Tribes: Ascend - Steam Starter Pack

Alan Wake Bundle

Anno 2070 Pack

Rayman Origins

Are my pick ups this Summer, the majority of them I passed on at release to play through my back log, so was waiting for this sale to get them. Only thing missing that I really wanted was the Amalur DLC, annoyingly it's getting discounted everywhere else but it's not compatible with the Steam version.

So far I've completed Harley Quinn, the current Walking Dead episodes and the Anno 2070 campaign, but have continuous mode to start. Should also complete The Darkness II today, seems shorter than I expected but enjoying it.

I don't know if it's just that I've been through a number of sales now, but it did seem a bit underwhelming. Many repeats and games that have been on sale so many times before.

So, as a Steam Sale Newbie, is now the time for me to grab the Popcap collection as it's not likely to go any cheaper (or any of the individual games aren't likely to drop any further?)

Technically there are another set of flash deals to come, but I think it's fairly safe to just grab everything now. Definitely the Popcap ones, they are incredibly unlikely to all reduce further.
