Nice! I've had my eye on that game but never wanted to spend the $$$.

I recently came across this really useful site that lists deals on Steam, Origin, Uplay, Amazon, the Humble Bundle and like 20 other digital download sites. You can choose to only look for games that are Steam-activatable, if you'd like. You can use it in three ways:

1) Browsing directly on http://isthereanydeal.com/
2) Adding specific games to your wishlist there (or importing your Steam wishlist) and getting emailed whenever they're on sale
3) Using the Steam Price History Graph extension for Chrome to automatically let you know about low prices when you browse the Steam website in Chrome

Much easier than searching through all the digital download sites separately.

I use http://www.steamgamesales.com/

It might be better than isthereanydeal for people not in the US as you can change the region.

Origin is having a decent sale. Mass Effect 3 for AUD 6, if you've been putting that buy off. Sims 3 was a little tempting, but I'd need to read up on what expansions to get.

GamersGate has the second Civ V DLC, Brave New World for AUD 7.50. Lowest that it's ever been.

GreenManGaming has a Total War collection for 20 something bucks. Does not have Rome II, of course. Really can't think who'd buy something like that, but I feel a bit dim for picking up Empire for 9 bucks the other day. I guess the one I bought includes more DLC. They do have Rome II on sale as well, for 30 bucks. It's been that low several times.

I think isthereanydeal lists a few more stores (Humble Bundle, DLrocket, etc.) You can change its region at the very top left.

The Steam Summer Sale is on early this year. It goes from today (June 19th) to June 30th.

So far we've got major discounts on:
Don't Starve: $3.74
The Witcher 1 & 2: $1.99 and $3.99
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion: $7.99
Far Cry 3: $7.49
XCom Enemy Unknown: $7.49
Dead Island Riptide: $4.99

And a whole bunch more. It's only the first day, so there'll be plenty more to come.

PS: I have a free copy of Left 4 Dead 2 (for Steam) if anyone wants it. PM me your Steam username or your email address.
