Silly Steam

Seems like a good deal to me buying a bunch of games in a bundle for $52 more than what it would cost to buy them individually.

Even more of a bargain when you find that you can buy the same bundle from the Humble sale for $11.69.

I've seen this happen before on Steam, even when there was no other deal on one or more games in a bundle.

Since I use Enhanced Steam in Chrome I can see what deals show up from other sites as well.

Yeah, I came across quite a few more yesterday when I was checking out bundle deals in the humble sale.

I think that (sometimes) happens due to server side caching, I've seen similar things happen when the store switches over from normal mode to sale mode, it can take a few minutes for the prices to be what they really need to be even when Steam is already listing them as being on sale.

But more likely its just the silly distributor inputting the sale information badly.

That could very well be, I just had an issue where the Steam Client automatically was DECLINING my card immediately.

I then checked my bank account to find nothing was getting through and processing.

It was if the Steam Client was disconnected from the network but why was I able to add items into my cart ?

I had to exit and wait a minute or so and then reload the client, now it's working again.

Others have been noticing something similar or that the client just seems to disconnect your account profile at random times, I've also been noticing this happening a lot the past couple of months.

I guess they want the Summer Sale to be a game within a game
