    I have so many now I haven't even finished not sure I need any. Well .. maybe Prey for $19.99. Never played it.

    Maybe Divinity 2: original Sin but it's still $40. Empires of the Undergrowth looks interesting but it's not really on sale. Early access.

    Think I'll pick up Vanquish and GTA V. Glad I didn't get the latter during the last sale as it's cheaper now.

    Probably won't buy anything again. Have some other games to play, though I barely play them either.

    Since you can't buy and store in gift inventory any more, meh, forget it.

    Yeah, for years and years. I used to buy up games when they were dirt cheap and give them away later. Frequently there were 4-packs so one would be added to your account and the other 3 in your gift account to give to friends. Now you can only gift directly to someone. You can't hold it in your gift inventory.

    That's an awful thing to take away. Steam. If they were worried about it being an issue with currency and exchange rates just make it so you can gift only within your own local dollar or something.
    I'm still grateful for winning for your giveaways from years past! :)

    I tell myself the same thing. I didn't really buy anything the last few sales compared to previous years.

    I was really hoping to see Divinity:OS II for more than 10% off. Maybe it'll be like a flash sale thing or something but it doesn't appear they are doing any daily deals of any sort.

    Got a gift card.. so I guess I'll start off nabbing Wolfenstein II, I'm a freak for board game adaptations so grabbing Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation...

    I was thinking Assassin's Creed: Origins but I still haven't played Unity which I bought, and I'd rather do that then Syndicate first.

    Hard to believe NieR: Automata isn't in this.

    So many indie type games i'm eyeing up I could nab a few of those..

    Japanese developers tend to be pretty stingy with discounts unless a game is relatively old.
