Steam Holiday Sale gets 'Weekend Encore'

Postby Jingee » 04 Jan 2013, 23:57

Hooray; another weekend of me fighting my wallet. Luckily I seem to be running out of games I want/money.
Did pick up Civ V GOTY and G&K's though.

"The Encore Weekend begins at 10am PST on January 5 (Saturday) and runs until 10am PST on January 7 (Monday)." That's 2am on January 5 to 2am on January 7 in UK time.


Erm, no. Unless the entire American continents have moved and are now sharing a time zone with Hong Kong, that's 6pm on January 5th until 6pm on January 7th in UK time.
Let's just discuss, not fight.

Personally I've been slightly disappointed with this year's holiday sale. There were some good games and I'm sure loads of people got some good offers, but I thought last year's sale was better.

Have to agree, personally I think it's been a little lackluster, not quite sure why. My bank account sure didn't mind though. I think it's gone on long enough tbh, like the Christmas holiday period it's okay for a while but I'm glad when things get back to normal.
No need to be careful what you wish for, you probably won't get it.

I found better deals on Green Man Gaming than Steam this year.

I only finished building my PC at the beginning of November, gone back to my gaming roots, and am already sick to the back teeth of that steam sale! The money isn't and issue it's the lack of time to play all the games that I want and still have time for the kids and the wife and my Xbox! I love a good deal but i physically can't alter time and make us have 40 hours in a day just to get around to playing the games that I want :cry: I wish I hadn't got married and had kids :cry:

I had thought that as well, then I realised it is because I've got most of the stuff on sale in previous sales already!
