Emails from Paypal around the net have pointed to the start of yet another Steam Fall Sale this coming Nov. 26. Yup, this Wednesday, a full two days before Black Friday. Sorry retailers, but the Internet has been beating you to the punchline this year.
Valve has yet to set an official date, but the timing seems just about right.
There once was a time when I would say it was time to hide my wallet, but I am totally over the whole “Steam Sale” thing. I’m all for cheap video games, but its nice to see a little bit of pacing as they flow into my collection. Perhaps I bought one too many games I ended up not playing over the years, but I can only look at my Steam library in disgust anymore.
Sony has found a much more comfortable pace with weekly PlayStation sales that may or may not have something I’ll actually play, and I mostly only buy sentimental favorites. All I really want to see from Valve these days is Half-Life 3.
However, this doesn’t seem to be the case for a lot of people, who are always excited for the start of new incredible deals. Anything you are looking forward too? The only thing on my radar is the Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition.
