I hope they don't have full game packages on sale AFTER putting individual titles up.

What impresses me is that the Valve pack is only $49.99 and it includes Portal 2. I still haven't gotten Portal 2 and would consider getting that pack but I already have basically all of the other games included in it.

Worth it for $15, IMHO. If you have any of the other DoW2 games, you'll enjoy it.

I'm severely tempted by Witcher 2, but I still haven't finished Fallout:NV, DA2, and DS3, and RiFT is taking a good chunk of my gaming time.

And thanks to those of you posting your finds here, I've been busier than ever at work and home lately, and don't get much time to surf for deals.

.
I'd reccomend against Witcher 2 on steam simply because the updates were forcing people to redownload the entire game each time. The game's launcher takes care of the updates, it seems CDPR didn't get that straightened out with Valve. It may be sorted eventually, but my D2D copy works flawlessly.
Another example of improper steamworks integration. Nothing against CDPR, the game is great. (mostly).

BY the way, Best Buy will beat futureshop's $29.99 on Portal 2 by 10%.

Honestly, I don't like this sale. If I were to buy something, I would wait until I see it in the Daily Deals. Even though there are a TON of games on sale that aren't daily deals, if any one of them gets into the DD section, they will be less expensive.

Case and point: Shogun 2. Yesterday it was $36.99 "on sale". Today it is in the daily deals and it's listed as $29.99. I'd be pretty pissed if I had bought it yesterday.
