Let the Madness Begin: Steam's Pre-Holiday Sale is On

It’s the moment your bank account has been dreading: Steam has begun their annual wallet-draining celebration of creating some of the craziest deals in gaming. This isn’t even the Holiday Sale proper and already we’ve got some deals that will make you wonder what the guys over there are smoking.

Deals change daily, sometimes even more frequently, so definitely keep an eye on the store’s main page to stay abreast of this insanity. Here’s a few things to watch for: gift packs and wishlists. For whatever reason, they’re offering huge packs of single games to give to your friends for a massive discount. A six-pack of Portal for $15? Maybe you’d prefer a ten-pack of Freedom Force? Definitely a good chance for you to take care of your Christmas shopping right now. ¬†Oh, and be sure to be adding games to your Steam wishlist: Every day of the sale, Steam will be randomly selecting five people and simply giving them the top five games on that list.

Oh, and Machinarium is currently $5. That means that if you don’t pick it up right now, you’re officially a bad person.
