It is one anyway. You can add Megathread to the title if you wish though.

Add the word "MEGATHREAD" to the title

...plus add a stack of games that are in the sale...you don't get off too lightly with just the word megathread

EDIT
I see you've added quite a number of games already ...doh lol

Yeah. Always pricing errors in Steam sales. You usually can't actually buy the -£0.01 games though.

Thanks for that. top tip ! kitguru.net/gam…es/

for game of thrones is this a season pass for the future episodes or just for season 1? Not sure by the description.

Anyone know where I can get discounted steam wallet codes? The 'banned' site is OOS.

Thanks

Remember the first and only rule about the steam sale. Don't buy a game until the last day of the sale unless it's a flash sale, daily deal or community choice!

Thanks for telling us what we already know, is not like Steam doesn't tell you the offers. This thread should be deleted.

Yeah, lets also delete any deals from Morrisons as they are at the end of every aisle, or even the Argos ones that are plastered all over the TV adverts or across their store windows, Whilst were at it delete any Blinkbox, HMV, eBuyer, Origin, Next, M&S deals because they all send me emails.

The idea is the thread tracks the best offers (bearing in mind prices tend to fluctuate). Steam won't highlight this...and there are so many offers on there (6000+ games) it's a useful resource to have the power of HDUK users highlighting the best offers in one convenient thread. Hence why this is 'mega'.

Yes, Steam tells us about all 6000+ offers. I, for one, appreciate any community effort in highlighting any particularly good deals (kind of the point of the site).

Posts like yours should be deleted.

Merry Christmas, Mr Scrooge.

I should be like a rash over these, but think the Humble Bundle deals have spoilt me and these seem expensive!

My library currently reports 146....I mean how the hell did that happen. There's some humble bundle stuff in there but I really wouldn't like to calculate what I've actually spent! Then again, I wonder what it would add up to if I calculated it at the games original RRPs? Hmmmm!!

Pure laziness. Everything is on the steam page.

Let me explain this to you, slowly. Not every people go to Morrisons or not many people receive the email from your mentioned ones. But, when you open the Steam page is all there, there is a clear difference.
