Paypal is garbage.

They blocked my debit card from making purchases for "potential fraud risks" because the purchases I make don't make them enough money. Most of my purchases they only make about $0.25 off, but I figured I make enough that they make money.

Absolutely ridiculous. I'm done with PayPal now. What a joke. Sorry Steam.

I was going to say the same thing, these deals blow so far. I was hoping dishonored would go on sale for 75% and I'm still hoping X-com gets that, though it seems unlikely. Guess I'll have to wait until the summer for those prices.

All the big sales this year were basically me picking up random indie titles that I ran across the months prior to the sale and wanted to wait until they go 50%+ off. I'm really not surprised about some of the daily deals. Also, kind of lame with how few games it is on daily deals, I think this is the lowest deals per day sale yet.

Nice, I liked the Spec Ops demo and I wanted Bioshock 1, so this is a good bundle for me.

I'm waiting for Dishonored to get down around $22.50 again. At $25 or below, I might bite on either GMG or Amazon...Only game I'm looking to get this year. Need to work on my console backlog.

I'd also like to add that it makes my brain hurt because I can't figure out why I'm unable to buy Bioshock 2 by itself for any reasonable price. It NEVER seems to go on sale individually. Bioshock 2 alone, $9.99. Bioshock 1 & 2, $5.00. :


EDIT: And on that note.
Free Bioshock 1 if you want it - 0G53P-PE8RR-WQPDZ

Yeah, the sale is not looking too great yet. But maybe that is because my steam library already has 200+ games so I own the majority of them anyways. I'm waiting to see if Skyrim does go on sale though, How much do you think it will go for? 66% 75%?

I'm not sure, their site is still crashing but I might be able to still checkout now because price is still the same.

Yeah the logic is sometimes a little odd. Darksiders II: 16.99

Darksiders Franchise Pack: (Which includes Darksiders, Darksiders II and all of the add-ons) 13.59

I think I will likely pick up that and Orcs Must Die 2 and the packs for it.

the site is pretty much toast at the moment ...but i did manage to get the following keys redeemed on Steam :

Dishonored
Doom3 BFG Edition
Elder Scrolls: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition
Rogue Warrior

i can't check the rest of the keys at the moment since the site isn't responding.

Even if none of them work after what you have listed above - that's a nice deal.
