Default Steam's Daily Wishlist Giveaway

Okay, I'm personally getting a little tired of Valve's contests ONLY being wishlist giveaways, but hey, it's free this time.

Every day from now until their big Holiday sale (didn't they just have a sale?), they are going to be giving 10 people the top 10 games on their wishlist.

All you have to do is:

1. Add 10 games to your wishlist (duh)
2. Visit the sale page for the current game on sale.

That simple. It's hard to miss, as the contest is on the front page of the steam store. I'll keep updating this thread with the current game on sale (and the previous games if you missed out). Dunno if this is where the thread should go, but someone will fix that if it's not. I'll link directly to the current game on sale.

SALE LIST


Dec 1. Terraria - 75% off ($2.50)
Dec 2. Dungeon Siege 3 - 60% off ($20)
Dec 3. Borderlands - 75% off ($5)
Dec 4. Dungeon Defenders - 75% off ($3.74)
Dec 5. R.U.S.E. - 67% off ($9.99)
Dec 6. Orcs Must Die! - 75% off ($3.74)
Dec 7. Bastion - 67% off ($4.99)
Dec 8. Homefront - 75% off ($7.49)
Dec 9. Oblivion GOTY Edition - 75% off ($4.99)

Note: Usually when there's a sale, the ENTIRE franchise is on sale with it, so any DLC or GOTY editions have the percentage discount as well.

I grabbed terraria, debating Dungeon Siege 3. I enjoyed the first one, never played the 2nd. Anyone play the 3rd, worth $20?

For an extra $5 you can get a package of DS1, DS2 and DS3.

For $25 it would definitely be worth it.

And no doubt during the big Holiday steam sale coming up, it'll probably go down at least 50% again if not more if you miss it.

I bought one game during Thanksgiving Sale. The daily deals have been nice this week, but I am waiting for the Holiday sale.

The Dungeon Siege package was tempting, buy will wait.

Well they didn't specify Quebec so I would assume so.

The odds of winning this are astronomically small, but man I would really like some free games right now. And legal ones too.
