    I am hoping for some end-of-the-year deals to complement my free CK2 I got on Steam with all the metric ton of juicy DLC this game has-
    Does anyone know if there is a way on Steam to flag certain games so I´d be notified when/if they go on sale?

    AFAIK, when you put an item on your wishlist for steam it emails you when it goes on sale.

    It should, but it not always does.

    If you want much better control over notifications for game sales I would use isthereanydeal.com/. On that site you can see deals not only from Steam but other sites as well and you can set how low the price should drop for a notification to be sent to you. The site seems to keep getting better. I just noticed they added a "notify me only if the game activates on Steam" checkbox.

    Its supposed to but I find it usually does so quite some time after the sale has started.

    one of the steam midweeks is Worms (with a free play period too). I havent played worms since the late 90s but it was one of my favorite light-hearted games at the time (that and the Oddworld series). anyone got a recommendation from their newer games of the late 2000s to now?

    Worms Reloaded is the closest to the style of the old Worms games.

    ah, thanks. i also watched some Armageddon LPs. seems pretty reminiscent too.

    edit: the whole collection (minus Clan Wars) is $22.50. dont know if i want to get all of them but that's pretty cheap. the ones im thinking about total to about $15 anyway.

    Maybe you already heard this bad news but you just missed a Humble Bundle weekly sale on the Worms games... :sad:

    Master of Orion Series is 70% off on GOG, only today.

    I'm not familiar with neither MoO2 nor 3, but the original game is surely a classic worth playing.

    Highly recommended for all TBS fans :goodjob:

    2 was basically just a slightly enhanced and polished up version of the original, and as such it was absolutely brilliant. Probably not really worth it if you've played 1 to death, as it's not that different but otherwise a must buy. 3 was...well lets not go there...

    It has started! Steam Autumn Sale! Some of the deals today... Skyrim ($7.49!), Terraria, Walking Dead, and more...

    edit: Pretty much everywhere has some great deals going on now like Amazon and the Humble Store. Some deals on Humble... CKII Collection, M&B: Warband, FE: Legendary Heroes, and more... One that caught my eye on Amazon is the XCOM Collection which includes EU + DLC and the classics.

    Here's some links to make things easier:

    Nabbed the Walking Dead from Amazon, base game and DLC for $7.49.

    Really hoping for a couple of games to go 75% off, like AoEII.
