    It's Steam's intelligence test. If you buy the pack, you fail.

    It's in a different category to those games, but having played Deus Ex and the first two Batman games, I would say it's easily their equal in terms of satisfaction and game depth (and more than an equal, in the case of Batman). I bought it last night and spent 40 minutes just getting to the empress at the very opening of the game, and I'm not even doing the tutorials (I have them switched off, along with all the mission markers and indicators); for reference, you can get to the empress in less than ten minutes.

    They were correct at time of posting. :tongue:

    Updated with new flash deal prices.

    It's always worth checking out Amazon to see if they price-matched Steam's deals, as they don't add the "Australia Tax" as they're "US-only" :lol:

    Now I've been using Steam for a while and I do use the wishlist. But is there a way to get alerted if a game is on sale?

    E.g. I'man old school adventure game fan and Secret Files 3 is on sale. But it was cheaper before, selling for $5. But I do not have the time to check prices all the time. That sale was just for a day or two.

    Anything I can do?

    Errr, use the wishlist more?

    I have over 100 games on mine and get an email any time they go on sale.

    Basically any time I look at a game that looks even vaguely interesting it goes on the wishlist.

    I get an email everytime an item on my wishlist goes on sale. There is a setting in your Steam Preferences (Home > Account > Email Preferences) that
    says:
    [x] Send me an email when:
    [x] An item on my wishlist goes on sale.

    [ ] Opt out of all email marketing communication​

    Check what you've got it set to. Also check Steam has your correct email address. And finally, I think they turn that feature off during major sales as I haven't received an email in a few days and I know half my wishlist is on sale. If they left it on, they'd be sending out millions, if not hundreds of millions of emails during these major 1000+ game sales.

    Hope it's repeated on the last day, or wait for the New Year Sale when almost all of these deals will be repeated.
