Just thought I would point out for everyone the Steam is having an awesome holiday sale this week.
I just picked up, STALKER for 1.99(dunno if I'm gonna pick up Clear Sky for another 5 bucks) and also the following Star Wars games:
Dark Forces Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
all for ten bucks.
So 6 games for 12 bucks. Not bad. And there are a TON more deals. Everything Ubisoft, 50% off. Everything 2K 25% off and so on.
So yeah, just letting everyone know, in case you don't sign into Steam every day or anything.
Coincidentally, the store is currently very difficult to get around probably due to server load. Id recommend waiting if you plan to make some purchases, my cart got cleared three times already.
Last weekend Valve gave a Free Play weekend for Team Fortress 2 and sold the game for 50% off for 3 days.
The weekend before, they were selling Counter Strike: Source at 75% off.
Sorry, but those are the two deals I can think of, partly because those are the only ones I knew about in time to buy the games for cheap.
EDIT: My apologies to the OP, I didn't completely read your post. I didn't notice the sale because it hadn't started when I checked a few hours ago.
Anyway, for those willing to get a shitload of games this Christmas, right now there's like 25 pages of games under $10.
Fallouts 1 & 2, Red Faction 1 & 2, Half-Life 2 Lost Coast and Deathmatch, Half Life: Source, Republic Commando, Far Cry 1, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, DiRT, every Splinter Cell
Just to name a few.
And by the way, some of those are below $5.
I just picked up STALKER, Serious Sam HD, Killing Floor + DLC, Chronicles of Riddick, Freedom Force Complete Pack, and Torchlight for 50.
God I wanted Serious Sam so much too, I'm so happy. I love Steam.
Too bad I have no way of paying online, it's all in-store/retail for me. :(
No! I'm Spamacus!

Great deal on the Star Wars pack. Wish they had offered this a number of years ago before I had them all. =p
I'd get S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in an instant if it would run on my computer. :(
I've got about $25 in my cart waiting to be bought tomorrow. Mirror's Edge, World in Conflict: Complete Edition and X3: Terran Conflict
