https://steamdb.info/sales/ To help you navigate through the clutter. Been almost 2 hours and steam is still getting hugged to death though.

Ugh, terrible so far from what I've seen. Most titles are not at their historical lowest level (or even at their second lowest either!) and of course they will not be due to no more flash deals. In fact, some titles are currently cheaper on other sites! For example, Steam lists Ground Zeros at $7.99. Meanwhile, over at GamersGate, it's $5.00. Shadow of Mordor is $16.99 on Steam for just the base game. Meanwhile on Bundle Stars it's currently $14.99-- for the game and all $DLC.

Basically it's the same sale as always, only no more random deep discounts.

It's like they (Valve) are not even trying any more.

And of the 41 items on my wishlist, none are at a price I consider cheap enough to bother with. Truth be told, a bunch of those items are things I would hardly part with a buck for, so I may need to clean out the list.

< leaves for ten minutes >

And of the 17 items on my wishlist, none are at a price I consider cheap enough to bother with yet, and since this sale is unchanging (and I understand their reasons for that), there is no reason for me to check back even a single time on the prices; they are what they will be, I'm not interested, so...DONE!

Sweet. Moving along!

many things in my wish list are either sub $5 or 80%+ discount which makes them must buys, yay

also with what PacerDawn is saying, it's always good to check other sites, to facilitate this I would suggest using Enhanced Steam

I couldn't agree more! Before purchasing anything in this sale, install Enhanced Steam and bring up the store page to see what the best prices are on it. Enhanced Steam will also show you details on your Wish List page (though I've been having difficulty getting prices to load there).

Another option is to go to isthereanydeal.com which lists prices for all of the major (and some minor) sites, including the historical best price by site.

Too bad I bought every game I wanted already.

This is actually pretty sad for me.

Well I am completely underwhelmed so far. Either I already have most of the games I'm interested in, or they aren't on sale enough to entice me to buy them.

I just don't get excited for Steam's sales anymore.

I found about 4 titles I couldn't pass up at that price. Not as bad as the halloween sale.
