Steam Sales - The Truth!

From what I've been told there is a reason for not having "daily sales" now. People would buy a game at a higher price, then it would go down in the daily sale, then they would complain, and it was just wasting Valve's time having to deal with all these queries/complaints etc about pricing. Something like that :)

I can see why they would want to simplify the system, but it doesn't sound great if Valve's reason is the effort involved in customer service! Shame that the net result is fewer 'big' discounts.

Even without the daily deals we're still overloading their sales servers.

 

Come on Valve, you knew this was coming, get better sales servers.

There are things that I would like to buy but if I click on them it loads the page in bloody Greek, Spanish or other foreign language and I can't buy it!

 

If I try and change the language to English I get messages like this:

 

Ha habido un problema al guardar tus cambios. Por favor, inténtalo de nuevo más tarde.

 

Which says it's not possible to change the language, so I want to buy but Steam won't let me!

Yes Steam has been having some "issues" tonight. Should hopefully be ok tomorrow!

Finally got on to buy Rocket League (and Lego Star Wars) but I do miss the daily deals.

I'm thinking of returning my Steam Controller.  I'm still crap at playing Rocket League.  I thought the controller would make me a better person, but it hasn't.  I'm still sulking.

I haven't tried a Steam controller yet; kinda hoping someone will have one at LAN I can play with.

There's a clue there, it's not the controller ;)

I'm kinda disappointed in the steam controller I tried it on rocket league and hated it and went straight back to my Xbox controller. Wish I got an Xbox 1 controller instead now!

Think I'll probably sell my steam controller cause I've chucked the box :(

Just pulled out the card and bought my purchases for this sale.

£42 for 2 games (DmC and Wolfenstein New Order) and metric f***load of DLC tracks for Rocksmith 2014.

 

Motorhead - Ace of Spades was a REQUIRED purchase!

So was Motley Crue - Kickstart My Heart

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
