Ah yeah, it looks iffy but I wondered as people seemed 'on it' and one of the dates had passed, I wondered if anyone could confirm that it happened or not? I know there are lots of STEAM users on the forum!
The first Steam sale did happen as the e-mail said. Steam usually do have a Christmas sale so if the e-mail is not 100%, there will still be a sale soon I reckon.
I like the fact it says 'Do not make this public'
FWIW last year's Steam sale started on the 21st December, so the 19th for this year is credible. And the Autumn sale was indeed on the dates listed, and was called the Autumn sale, not the Fall sale, for whatever reason. I'm inclined to believe it.
If you have a Steam account and your son has his own, bear in mind that you can buy games as a gift for later - they're held in your inventory until you choose to send them. So buy a game he wants when it's on cheap, then sit on it until birthday/Christmas and send it then
Starts tonight (Thursday). If not, I'll drink my tea through my sock!
Woo hoo! It's ON!
Dammit, I wanted that video of sock tea. Ah well, I will console myself with CHEAP GAMES.
Found this last night and it is very cool: Firefox/Chrome extension Enhanced Steam
Highlights games you own, games on your wishlist, shows the cheapest price a game has been on Steam & its cheapest historical price anywhere else on the web, shows how long a game will take to beat... and worryingly, shows you on your account page how much you've spent. I'm clocking in at £254 (not bad for 208 games, god bless Humble Bundles) but one of my techs looked and he was on £1200+...
I got what I wanted for my son! Well, it was in a little Counterstrike bundle with 75% off! It was Condition Zero! I know it's old and not very graphically amazing. But he used to take a real interest in me playing Counterstrike (like boys do) but he's too young I think to be playing it. So I spent hours skinning up CZ for him with robots and Teletubbies, lego maps, balls for grenades, no weapons, paint splat bullet holes, no blood (obviously), a little toy bomb, a fish knife, with bots to play with and all sorts and he loved it (mostly just wandered round the map getting killed though)!
He's a little older now but still not ready for the full horror of war, so I'm going to try skinning a Star Wars theme and we can LAN together.
He's totally not into playing the guitar yet (my other love) which breaks my heart, but can't push him and now at least we can do this together. I know it's not much but I guarantee, to him it will be the best Xmas prezzie ever!

If i ever become broke, it'll be because of Steam.
