So it's that time of the year again.

Buke Entertainment recently tweeted that the sale will start tomorrow at 9pm Moscow time. Which is 10am pdt.

Here's a countdown for that time.

A list of possible games was also recently leaked

Enjoy your empty wallets guys. I know I will.

You suck, I was going to make this thread tomorrow :(

Anyway, I hope Civ 5 and Witcher 2 go on sale. Both are games I'd really like to play.

I'll be getting some of those Indie Bundles. Specifically the one with Zeno Clash.

I don't really plan on buying much, unless something absolutely amazing catches my eye. I'm interested in checking out all the deals, though.

I probably would have thought about buying some stuff, but there's 2 reasons I probably won't:
1. Not enough space on my harddrive. Seriously, TF2 takes up a LOT of space, not to mention Audiosurf, Insaniquarium, and Poker Night At The Inventory
2. Last weekend I bought the full version of Fraps, and that was EXPENSIVE. Kinda wish I knew that even 3 minutes of recoding Audiosurf gameplay with it would have taken up a few gigs and that I'd lag after a couple of minutes as well before I bought it...

I accept your challenge Steam and that is not being tempted to ANY of your sales. Well, not until I have a better PC to play these games which could be a while. Still, if the odd thing does show up like Broken Sword games for only £2.50, I may consider picking them up but not the majority of games right now.

That's just uncompressed video. It should compress itself after your done recording.

The only games I will get are World At War, Modern Warfare 2, The Sims 3, Left 4 Dead, and Left 4 Dead if they are on sale. I already have most of the computer games I want already.

1 PM is a really odd time to start anything. I know it's in Pacific time but it still makes it 10 PM, an equally odd time to start something.

It's at 6 PM for me. It's always been like that for steam. Don't question the Gaben, he has his reasons. I actually prefer having the transition in the middle of the day though.

Red Orchestra 2 is off by 40%. I was going to buy it yesterday, good thing I waited.

Crusader Kings II is on sale. I recommend it wholeheartedly. I'm going to pick up the DLC for it considering how cheap it is now.

Seriously, this. I think they stopped updating it, but it's still filled to the gills with fun.

On top of this I also recommend convincing or finding a friend to play it with. The game is 10x better with friends.

Oh and binding of Isaac is on sale too. If you don't have it, get it. It is like video game crack.

I want today's indie bundle because out of those I only have Edge and I really want Cave Story and The Baconing. I'm also thinking about the SEGA Hit Collection, but I have a while before I have to decide on that one. All those old games I've never tried!

I love Steam sales. I got 'Indie Bundle I'. There'd better not be anything else I want that's on sale, even spending £6.99 was a bit stupid of me. I'm expecting stupidity to prevail in the next 10 days.

I haven't seen anything that really peaked my interest so far. The Rockstar Pack looks nice, but I'm afraid my laptop isn't going to be able to run those games very smoothly so I think I better pass on those.
