Steam sucks like an ice cream parlor that opens up across the street when you're trying to lose weight.

Damn sales. I got The Witcher, Avencast, and Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon. The latter I already own, but I figured $2.03 isn't bad to have a downloadable copy. Maybe that was just a waste of money.

I just saw source price and it's not 6.80 but 13.39, why is that?

Matthew Matthew, TechSpot Staff, said:

Because it was a 24-hour (one-day) sale, Kibaruk. There's a new set of daily specials today.

Kibaruk Kibaruk, TechSpot Paladin, said:

Oooh I thought it was for all that time =/

Matthew Matthew, TechSpot Staff, said:

Awesome Kibaruk. A number of us have been playing L4D2 versus mode on the weekends lately. What's your Steam name?
