Tag-ged.

Things I want:
Borderlands for $5 or less (co-op with the wife)
Portal 2 for same
Skyrim for $20 or less

Everything else is negotiable.

Things I want:

A time machine and a BB gun
A statue of Moby on the surface of the sun
To party naked on a school bus full of nuns
A bumper pool table and a robot pelican

Or failing that, a good sale on Mark of the Ninja for a gifting-spree.

Thanks to Grumpicus for making me one of the 1% with the new job. It's giftin' time.

Biggest things I am looking for are FTL, Witcher 2, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion and then Skyrim DLC.

Would like XCOM And Dishonored, but I doubt those will hit my buy price.

I have, I think, 4 games on my wishlist. That's all I want and the most I will buy.

...I hope...

tboon pwned Clocky ... or whoever normally does the winter thread.

Looking for an irresistibly low price on Mark of the Ninja or XCOM, along with anything else suitable for gifting fodder.

No idea. Really should pick up the Gods and Kings Civ V expansion, the Amazon price had shot up again by the time I'd looked at it. Other than that, not really sure. Having just picked up yet another Humble Indie bundle, I gots lots o' stuff.

But will TBoon be able to keep up on the thread title changes like Clocky did? I heard Mr Boon is old and often falls asleep at his desk. I fear it may be too much for the old fella!

Edit: I think I've also reached a point of not really wanting to pick anything up this time around. I've got a decent pile o' shame going and I've been getting back into my PS3 pile as of late. Somanygamez!

Both tboon and Clocky use to have different names around here. I smell a conspiracy. Ohio will go to Romney!

Who changes their name? Seriously.

Steam Sale? Tagging. Discussion, tagging? Reporting for duty!

but, my wallet doesn't like this time of the year for this year. Changing jobs had a greater impact on my pay than I thought.

What I want from this/those sales? Sharing!

I have Nightmares about these things.

Clock's on vacation, I'm just filling in. Hopefully I will not disappoint.

Me too.

I hope Planetside 2 goes -50% off. With my math skills I figure SOE will owe ME money. Excellent.

EDIT: Why does my Chrome spellchecker thing underscore the word 'math'?

People named Greg.

Hoping the Assassin's Creed franchise gets a nice discount so I can fill in the gaps where I played on 360.

I have one goal: Not add anything to my pile.

I... actually haven't played any of the gifts I received during the last sale (aside from Ponycorns) so I'm going to pay the GWJ goodwill forward this time. Well I'd be paying it forward anyway, but I don't want anything in return this time.

So I guess make that two goals. You've been warned.

I hate you, tboon.

Yeah, the autumn sale isn't going to do much for me, I fear. Too much to save up for for Christmas. The winter sale, on the other hand... once Christmas is over I will be hitting that hard. Let the gifting commence!

I have a hefty wishlist, but the only things I really want are Sleeping Dogs for cheap, and Skyrim for cheap. Dishonored would be nice too, but I don't see that receiving a big discount.

Don't buy anything you can't complete, so open ended games, or short games you can finish before getting the next one. That avoids putting it on a queue.

What am I looking for? No idea. We will have to see. I have too many games on the pile and there's always the Christmas sale.

Besides, my favorite buys are always the indie games I've never heard of for super cheap.

You're not going to jump off a bridge again, are you?

xcom would be nice, what are the chances it'll hit $25? hmm

Sleeping Dogs could be fun, as would CODBOP2

I have played some of the gifts, but I still have the same goal(s). Do you need a sponsor?

I'll be gifting to others, but my steam wishlist is empty so I shouldn't be getting anything incoming. If by some weird chance, I get a gift sent to me anyway, uhm... Well on the one hand, I should probably just send it on because I don't need a bigger pile, but on the other, given the empty wishlist, it would feel kind of rude, given the (small level of) dedication it would require.

I don't have a lot on my wishlist and I'm all-borderlands2-on-the-console-all-the-time these days (especially with dlc today and me with a season's pass) and I haven't put that much time into xcom or torchlight2 which I already own and do like.

I reckon I'm pretty safe this winter.

I just need borderland 2 to drop in price to justify it.
