Default Steam Holiday Sale (10-75% off)

Just in case anybody hasn't noticed it while logging on, but Steam's got a whole load of games on sale (including ones you might actually want to play!), so if you don't mind digital distribution, this might be a decent chance to add to your library. If you haven't picked up Bioshock or Portal, you can only go so wrong for $5, eh?

Yeah I bought like a dozen games because of this sale. Bioshock for $5 nice.

This is one of the major reasons why i LOVE steam. You can't get prices like that anywhere else.
