Maybe it's just me but it feels like the selection of games on sale this Halloween is very slim.

Yeah, little thin, but there may be hope by the days leading to Halloween. Fingers crossed.

Yeah. I was expecting a bit more. I even opened a thread about what games you look forward to to go on sale for the Halloween. Well... it isnt halloween yet, and then im sure Christmas will have more stuff on sale.

Sales and freebies are so standard now, I think traditional holiday sales will all seem less monumental in the future. People used to buy EA games on holidays sales for instance. Now EA seems to put a few games on sale continuously, rotating through their whole catalogue. And that's just one example.

Edit: Also you mean "on sale". There are tons of games "for sale"

I wish there would be more games on sale that I don't have, for sure, but that happens a lot these days. As others have said, maybe we'll see a last-minute pre-Halloween surge after all in the last few days. Hopefully. Pretty please.

I don't recall there traditionally being a lot of Halloween sales, if anything there seem to be more this year... Apocalypse Max, Muffin Knight, Cthulhu Saves the World, Mechano Wars, Squids Wild West, Hellgore, Organ Trail... What more could you want?

No worries through because if patterns hold you'll need to clear your iDevice for Thanksgiving/Appvent season.

I agree. Halloween isn't the type of holiday for sales anyway. Nothing is closed. You don't get off from school/work. It isn't a "gifting" holiday...well, sure, you can trick or treat, but I haven't met anyone who gives out iTunes gift cards instead of candy corn.

I think one of the biggest reasons for holiday sales is store closures. When people can't shop in person, maybe they'll pick up something online. Well, having a day off is a big factor too.

Well, the main titles I am waiting for are Bastion, Crazy Taxi, and Revolt.

They are all kind of new, so maybe I will have to wait for xmas. Hopefully they will go on sale then.

Got lucky with Apocalypse max though, that was one of the gems I wanted and got for Halloween. Hopefully something else will come on the 31st.
