I just picked up "Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers - Soundtrack Edition" over at Steam for $1.49.  http://store.steampowered.com/app/205910/
Looked too quirky to pass up. Graphics remind me of Borderlands or Psychonauts.

You know, odd thing was, I was informed that my PayPal account would be charged and I was able to approve the transaction without having to go to a separate site to input my email and password.

Is this a new feature? Or just because it was a tiny amount?

There's lots of circumstancial evidence that the Steam sale will start on either today or tomorrow.  Good luck dear wallets.

did you have any money in your Steam Wallet?

Managed to grab A Wizard's Lizard (never thought I'd say that) for $4.79 due to a pricing error.  It just came out on Monday and the summer sale price was supposed to be 34% off, the same as the release week sale.  Instead, it took off an additional 34% making the total discount 68%.  In this case, I decided to disregard the flowchart.  I'm glad I did, as it is now back to 9.89.

Otherwise, day one is not great.  Was briefly tempted by Democracy 3 but decided against it.  DayZ's 15% discount is a joke.

The Witcher 2 for $4? Yes, please!

I've been watching this one for a while and this price is just nuts. Heard a lot of good things.

As far as I know, I've never had money in a Steam wallet. And it specifically asked if I wanted to use my Paypal account to pay for it. Then Bam. Done. No password or email asked.

An awesome game, and that's an awesome price.  I love the depth to all the characters.  And the gameplay is challenging, especially to start.  Definitely worth picking up.

DMC is pretty good too.  I'd say it's worth $12.

I'm getting all the Payday 2 DLC and the Far Cry deluxe edition with all the DLC. Anyone else own this? I would like to do some co op

Just realized that Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon went on sale with Far Cry 3.  Picked it up for $3.74.  I already own it on PS3, but the price is good and I'm sure it's better on PC.

Really hoping the "Couch Co-Op" pack wins the community choice.  Octodad is a game I've been holding out for a sale on and I was hoping it would go to around 5 bucks and it will be $5.10 if it wins.

Anyone played Democracy 3? I'm interested, just wondered if it's any good.

I like it. It's not for everyone. If spending an hour or two navigating menus and tweaking variables sounds like a good time to you (And it is to me!), then you'll love it. I've never played the first 2, so I can't compare it to those, but it's lots of fun.

Just an FYI- XCom also has a bundle with XCom and The Bureau (the 3rd person shootie game set in the 50s)  for $1 more than just XCom alone. The Bureau wasn't great, but it's certainly worth a buck, especially if you just pretend it's "Invaders from Dimension Z" rather than an XCom game.
