    I have more or less two prizes worth of coal. Oh well, at least I got Deus Ex early on. Valve coupons and such are useless to me; because of the HL Collection the only Valve game I warnt but don't have is Portal 2.

    I figured something like this might have happened. Right now I have 10 coal and 5 useless coupons (three of them are -33% valve games)

    I find all of this complaining about free gifts, especially on the Steam forums (god they are whiny) to be hilarious. Who would buy games just to gamble on the achievements? This is why capitalism works. :3

    I wonder if people go onto online forums to complain about not winning anything with their lottery tickets.

    So, this is the guy who won the grand prize and every Steam game.

    http://steamcommunity.com/id/iminrightnow

    http://www.steamcalculator.com/id/iminrightnow

    He does have quite a few hours on some games (Dragon Age: Origins 50 hours, 150+ hours of the Ultimate edition, a bunch of CoD, Chess Grandmaster, King's Quest, 158 hours of Portal 2 (lolwut?), and tried quite a few other games).

    Even though the stuff in his profile is incredibly stupid.


    Apparently he may not actually be the winner at all, as a google cache shows him having all of those games on November 27th.

    EDIT: The drawing apparently doesn't happen until sometime today on the 3rd.

    The Age of Empires III Collection is currently half off on Steam.

    Also of note is that the current IndieRoyale bundle includes Nuclear Dawn, an interesting looking FPS/RTS mix. I'm personally interested in it just for that.

    It also has Fractal, Max and the Magic Marker, and Super Crossfire (an arcade shooter from the Xbox Live Marketplace never before released on PC).

    Yes "half off" as in closer to its actual price for today. I wouldn't really pay $20 for it (especially since I got it off of GFWL for 10 cents) and certainly not $40. (For AoEIII)

    Your link says $2.55 for me here in Canada (and I do believe we just get the US prices). It is mislabeled as 66% off when you go to the /offers page.
