Rats! I can't sell. Haven't bought anything from Steam between 30 days to a year ago... I just get stuff from Humble Bundles and other sites to redeem on Steam!

Star Wars: Battlefront is now $53.99 for the standard edition on Origin. $59.99 for the Deluxe if you want that OP Han Solo gun from the start. Still too expensive but it's a sign that it might be reasonably priced soon.

Pricing error for us in the Australian region on Steam for the Watchdogs complete edition at $5.44USD
Heard it was kind of a flop, but for that price I'm willing to give it a go.
Bought this morning and the price still appears to be this at the time of this posting.

Apparently, steam will launch uplay for Watchdogs to load. Might be a deal breaker for some.

Couldn't care less about Uplay (or origin) these days in comparison to the deals and prices you can get.
I just add Uplay.exe/Origin.exe as a 'non-steam game' and run that through steam anyway, I still have access to my steam chat/group notifications/shift-tab overlay etc. as though I were playing a steam game.
Literally the only difference is that it needs to launch another platform and no achievements/cards/playtime is tracked on steam.

Have bought so many games over the last month or so from various other retailers that offered Uplay/Origin keys which were 10x cheaper than steam (Sometimes literally, accounting for Nuuvem's crazy cheap prices and Steam's aussie gouge)
Still can't believe some of the prices I got on loads of the Assassin's creed games during Nuuvem's recent 24hr flash deal the other day, am pretty keen to get back into this franchise.

I was literally about to buy it, then thought, "nah I'll never play it so no point". Lol.

I had similar thoughts. It's not really the money (though I'm trying to teach myself good habits), but that I have more than enough titles I'll never play on Steam already without needing to add another to that list.

Though the temptation to stick it to those imposing the Australia Tax is always there... :P

Was tempted to buy too but with the next Diablo 3 patch due soon and BF4 being more addictive than I anticipated (and I've only been playing on two maps primarily)... and all the $ I've been spending on vacuum cleaners, knife sets, arcade sticks, and game pads, I figure I had better ease off on the spending.

After selling the free trading cards from the sales Watch Dogs cost me all of 3 USD. I'll probably never fire it up either.. but come on. 3 bucks! How could you not?

Wanted to sell some stuff to pick it up but "You must have a valid purchase between 30 days and 1 year to use the Steam marketplace" :(

Why must shitty people ruin everything?

Mine wouldn't let me sell shit because I had changed my Steam Guard in the last so many days...
Which was only due to me changing phone and needing it on the new phone...
Slightly annoying...

Watch_dogs was actually fun, it just wasn't the history defining experience everyone hyped it up to be.

For those that don't have XCom or a Civilization game, the current Humble Monthly Bundle is pretty good value.

Cool. Beyond Earth alone is pretty good value at US$15 and the other games as part of that price really makes it incredible value.

That is insane value, I've wanted Beyond Earth for a while but didn't want to pay what they were asking on Steam.

Just be aware that each tier of the Humble Bundle is a singe key with all the games bundled into it. I know that's a deal breaker for some people.
