    Mass Effect is on special on steam for the next 11 hours. $5 only!
    The difference between pizza and your opinion is that I asked for pizza.

    Guys, just a good rule to live by in life: Never buy from specials, as you will always buy something you don't want/need.

    I disagree completely. I have a list of games that I want. At one point or another said game will go on special and I buy it. I save money and I buy the games that I want. I spent enough money in the last two months to buy one new game. And yet I bought quite a lot. All games that I want. It's a bargain.

    Oh and add Portal to the list. Bought it this morning for $4.99.

    So you're telling me, that despite needing a new HD TV (since our old one got stolen in an armed robbery), we shouldn't have bought the Samsung Series 8 LED TV that was on special...?

    While that advice may hold true some of the time, in this particular instance (steam specials), we can get the games we want for cheap cheap. So as a result, why not?

    some would think up the most funniest ideas as to why other are bad for making use of specials [confusing the idea of cheaper isn't always better with specials...]

    all the games i got is the ones i really wanted to play and are great at those prices too

    Yes, if you have absolutely no self-control whatsoever. Loads of people do have self-control, however.

    Here's a good rule to live by: if you never buy from specials, you'll end up paying more.

    I bought the following:

    Braid (Already played on 360 but worth $2.50 for a time killer that runs on my laptop)

    Plants vs Zombies (Seriously addictive game, highly recomended)

    Torchlight (Havent played yet)

    Zombie Driver (A little disapointing TBH)

    Osmos (Pretty cool, awesome ambient sound track, weirdly compelling)

    Batman: Arkham Asylum (Somehow missed it last year. Waiting for Webafrica Steam servers to DL it)

    Trine (Looks really pretty, quite highly rated platformer. Im sure its going to be worth $5)

    I think everything added up to just under R500. God bless Steam

    Now just bring on the Webafrica server

    It's just human nature. You see something is cheaper than usual. You kind of wanted it before, but now it's such a good price, you just got to get it.
