Some hidden gems, this one from Fiss and it's on Steam:

From Shoonay, you could add reddit for a misc site that list all the good deals.

EDIT: Please note that Blinkbundle.com is no longer available. I just received an email from them notifying me of this and sending another copy of all the Steam Keys I purchased from them.

Bippy, do you have your Wishlist created on the games you would like ?

I'm sure I can send something your way

When you click on a game link and review the game info there is a button on the right hand side that states:

Add to Wishlist

Then you can add as many as you want and remove them too if you so desire.

One neat feature is that you can also reorder the Wish List so you can place the games you want more at the top and less at the bottom.

If myself or Gimbal goes to your Steam profile, we can review your entire wish list as well

So Bippy, would you like a free copy of Tomb Raider 2013 ?

I already have a copy and got another Steam key when I bought my new graphics card.

You are welcome

So when I click on the store page for a game, I can see on the right hand side if any of my Steam Friends have the game on their wish list too, this makes it even easier to gift games.

I guess I should also state that they are now selling productivity apps now to

Well lets keep track of the score huh

Gimby Day 1 purchases:

- Skyrim: Dragonborn (finally)
- Antichamber (very cool indie game)

and the rest I already had or do-no-want If you don't have it yet I can recommend Hotline Miami which you can get for next to nothing.

Good start, even with the server load. Lets see what today brings.

Also disclaimer about that wishlist: I use mine so I can keep track of the games I want to buy *myself*. Its a useful overview to quickly see which games are in discount without having to browse through the horrible and slow store interface. So Laffer: start using it dude!

That would be a no.

EDIT:

yeah wait hold it, that may just be the corporate proxy server that is blocking it now that I think about it. Probably at home I would have been able to see it. My apologies, moving along.

EDIT 2: dug up the link in the HTML source, yup its blocked

second day is a bit weak, although the walking dead and Far Cry 3 are tempting. If you like puzzle platformers definitely get Fez. If you've lived under a rock and don't have Grimrock yet, its almost free! Please don't be tricked into buying Anno 2070 - it has a retarded three installs DRM.

I've been living under the pirated rock and finished it a couple of months ago, but now I just have to finally get a legal copy of Grimrock, it's cheap as peanuts. Also, McPixel...

Too bad my banks closed till monday, I'll have to ask a friend to buy it for me.

I just accepted your friend invite, I will check out your wishlist

Bippy had Just Cause 2 on his list and there it was on sale along with the DLC.
