The full list of discounts at any time is http://www.steamgamesales.com/, and has RSS :)

Hooray, ran into my first glitch of the sale. Got the Unreal Deal, installed UT2K4, go an "invalid CD Key" error even though I haven't even gotten a chance to enter one yet. Nothing on the Steam forums about it. Using steams "check file integrity" function showed 1 file as corrupt, didn't help. Guess I'll try re-downloading it.

Edit: never mind. Screwed around and apparently I needed to run Steam as an administrator to let UT2K4 add the CD key to the registry.

By any chance did you click "no" when it asked to run the Steam system service?

Not doing toooo bad, so far got Fallout 3 GOTY, The Witcher, and Mass Effect 2. Total $35.

What I wanna know is where are all the 90% off games like last year? Did they run those towards the end or something?

Shank and Monday Night Combat has been a ton off fun, I have a few hours left to decide if I want to get Alpha Protocol or not...

I had previously got the Left4dead deal at $4.99, I added Stalker COP and Fallout GOTY. I think I had better quit now or I will have to go buy the wife another diamond pendant.

Do you mean the UAC popup when launching UT2K4? No, at least I don't think I did. And this is the first time I've seen something like it, so I don't think I disabled any steam related service.

I picked up Tropico 3 and X3 Gold package for $13.

I grabbed X3 Gold for $8.50 or so myself. Almost got suckered into the "complete" package with X1/2 which I wouldn't have played for $13.50 or something.
