I only have 2-3 games targeted for the sale this year:
  1. Titanfall-Only because someone said it had a single player campaign. Albeit a very weak one. I'll have to do some research on it though. No SP...Nos Mas.
  2. Dragon Age Inquisition-I bought Dragon Age Origens Ultimate Edition in the Summer sale and haven't even peeked at it yet. So I'll grab this one when the price hits my mark ($9.99-$19.99) and start from the beginning with DAO-U. I have nothing to lose by holding out for my price mark this year or next.
  3. ?...hmmm...that symbol would be a great name for a thriller based videogame...a simple ?

Titan fall was super cheap just recently during cyber sale weeks. I didn't buy it because it's mainly multiplayer and that doesn't interest me. Around $7 I think. Got to imagine there's going to be another sale soon.

Titanfall has a multiplayer campaign but no single-player campaign. It was $5 during Origin's recent sale. Even for that price I didn't get it as I won't purchase any multiplayer game on PC without dedicated servers or a server browser. It's also Origin only, so you won't find it on Steam. Amazon has had it on sale too though.

Edit: Actually, Dragon Age: Inquisition is Origin only as well. O_o

So do we know yet if this Holiday Auction is taking the place of the Holiday Sale this year, or is it in addition to that?

In addition, I've read it starts either tomorrow or Thursday.

I do most of my gaming on my tv and PJ but steam big pic is way too slow and buggy for me.

I haven't spent enough time to try to use big picture and determine if I can like it or not. The games seem more easily accessible outside of big picture. I just can't find the desire. Maybe if my machine was dedicated to gaming only, it would be different.

What are you thinking buying a game just a day or two before the winter sale starts?!

Unless he bought it and saw a sale on Humble. Speaking of which, their sale is still going on: https://www.humblebundle.com/store

If you don't already own Gunpoint, you should, especially for $1.99.

You know, it's one of the few times I saw the video a couple times and really wanted to play. Used the 20% off from GMG. I really don't feel that bad about it since it was only $10. I really dig the game so no problem paying to support it.

Anyone else having problems getting Steam video autoplay to work while reviewing games? I click play on it. And nothing happens. Mine only scrolls through still images now. It somehow got disabled during an update. Even though it still shows the always on check mark. Anyone know the fix for this issue? It really helps to have that feature enabled during the big sales like this.

I'm playing through it now, it's pretty good. You'll love it if you're the type of guy that gets off on watching a bullet slowly pass through and obliterate your target's internal organs.

It's alright but I prefer Sniper Elite 2 over the third.

I tried searching for a fix but found nothing. I solved it by turning turning off autoplay. All the videos work now. If it was a game with multiple videos, the first one always would fail to load, but the rest would work. Loaded up with the time "NaN:NaN" something like that.

Turn off autoplay.

I had this problem. There are others having this issue, and it's not a setting.

Thanks YRD. That worked. They play now from the second video on a manual basis. But the 1st still won't autoplay. I think the problem stemmed from a October 21 notice I got from Steam support...asking me to click on a steam client link to update and verify my e-mail address for a account security issue. The notice said:
"In order to help maintain the security of your Steam account, please verify your email address by clicking the following link:"
It never worked right after that. But if I log in on the email link itself (after verifying)...it works properly. I think Valve created a glitch around that security process. Go figure. I only discovered that after trying your suggestion.

Mine had been doing it for a while, I think it was an update that killed it.
