Steam Holiday Sale

(opens in new tab)

Valve kicked off its epic Steam Holiday Sale (opens in new tab) today, offering heavy discounts, flash sales, and catalog clearances lasting until January 5. And before we start drifting dangerously into wallet-pun territory, know you'll be able vote for a select game every 12 hours to go on sale.

Here's a sampling of the sales and flash deals (if you can call a 15-hour timespan a "flash") available for purchase right now:

The current nominees for the Community's Choice sale are Limbo (opens in new tab) , The Secret of Monkey Island (opens in new tab) , and Braid (opens in new tab) . The winner gets 75 percent taken off its price. And if, by some small chance, a specific game deal you're seeking isn't there, Valve can notify you when it shows up if you add the title to your wishlist. Wonderful.
