No sooner did I hit the "Publish" button did my wife walk into the room and ask about the Steam sale. Apparently, now I can get "something" from the store. The only problem is there is less than fours hours left in the sale (though on the Steam frontpage the countdown timer says "New Deal Starts In", which is maddening).
When I purchase games, I tend to spend more time (and frankly, have almost as much fun) mulling over my choices, adding and subtracting from my cart innumerable times.
This is going to be a long morning.
