Euro Truck Simulator 2 Gold (includes Going East DLC) is currently $7.00 (after applying 20% off voucher GMG20-ZB5D1-93X49) on Green Man Gaming. Lowest price it's been from what I can gather.

I always assumed gitfs and happy hour are squarely aimed at either traders or stockpilers. Don't quote me on that, tho.

Nice deals on the Humble store at the moment, for the next 9 hours or so. There are probably people out there who don't yet have FTL; if so, it's $3.39. There's also Continue?, which RPS liked and which looks interestingly quirky, for $5. Ittle Dew and Fez also feature, and I know they're meant to be good, but I haven't played either of them.

RPS people! I need some help with the steam sale!
Any recommendations? I received 30 euros on my steam wallet as a christmas gift and no clue what to use them on.
(Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post that in, I couldn't really find anything that seemed more appropriate)

So this is the correct thread then? Thank god :)
Strategy and action, mostly sci-fi stuff. Been looking at endless space and Deus Ex: HR, Payday 2 also looks pretty enticing, but I have no idea how good it is.

Deus Ex Human Resources is a safe bet for a fiver. It's a great game, with an interesting setting and nice art direction. It doesn't reach the heights of it's predecessor but it does it justice.
You could wait and see if the new XCOM ends up on sale again (either as a flash or an encore). It's the best turn based strategy I've played in a while. It manages to capture the feeling of the original.
If you're into 4X I recommend Sword of the Stars Complete (the first one) Currently 4 dollars. It does many things right, its universe is filled with stuff (often trying to kill you). It's diverse and quite unique in its blend of empire management and real time combat.
FTL is a lovely game. I think it already was on sale but it might show up again in a flash.
I remember The Chronicles of Riddick being a great game. Still, I don't know if it holds up to today's standars (also I think the steam version still has tages or another annoying DRM, if that's the case it's better to get it from GOG).
I always recommend Nexus: The Jupiter incident but this time is not discounted

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/foru...es-Gaben-Claus as we are discussing the sales. Well, when people aren't bitching about a game they paid money for in the past being on sale. Or bitching about the trading cards or how this isn't as good as the old sales or how Steam was overloaded by L4D2's giveaway.
As for those three titles:
I gave Endless Space a bit of a play. I think the balance and timing might be a bit off (the early game feels quite slow), but I have enjoyed it so far. And the tactical battles have the right balance between user input and simulation (you pick a strategy for the three stages of battle, and the rest is automated). And the game itself is gorgeous. From my limited gameplay thus far (an hour or two, most of which Steam didn't detect...), I see this scratching my itch for when I need something newer than GalCiv2
Deus Ex: HR is quite fun and very well done, but I personally found it to have very little replay value and I really wish it had done a hybrid approach where you get the utility augments (hacking) for free as the game progresses so that you can really distinguish Mr. "I never asked for this"
Payday 2 is a game I've been interested in for a while, but unless you have a group of friends (preferably 4 people total) who will regularly play it with you, I would give it a pass.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

FTL I own from the last sale :)
I bought Awesomenauts and Endless space gold, currently debating wether I should get Deus Ex for myself, considering I can play my brother's version thanks to the family sharing thingy. Also eyeing (is that a word? english is not my strong suit) Monaco, Loadout or KSP.
The amount of games is too damn high

It's also really, really tough, or at least I'm damn sure some people are going to find it tough. You're basically repeatedly stockpiling lives every level to safeguard you against the big bad in each mid-level interlude, and should you fail one of those levels, you can randomly lose a huge chunk of those lives on what is essentially the toss of a coin. To be fair the point of the game is that ultimately you will fail (it's about accepting your mortality and conquering your fear of death, etc.), but still, in the few playthroughs I've had so far it was emphatically not a relaxing experience, for all the shimmery cinematic soundtrack and the poetry flitting by. Hell of a ride, though, not quite like anything else out there.

I would recommend XCOM as well, but get it from amazon.com instead if you can. The collection (see URL below) includes all DLC as well as the old games. Or get the XCOM EU+EW bundle (second URL below). Enemy Within alone is probably cheapest at GMG right now.
