So I'm guessing there's no Steam Spring Sale?

Doesn't Steam usually do seasonal sales in the middle of the season?

You missed it.

It was on Origin, and practically everything was 50% off.

Steam = FINISHED. Not only does Origin have sales, but it gives away free games and has an decent UI. On the other hand, Steam UI is old, dated, and the store is filled with crap nobody cares about.

I think it's happened before but I wouldn't say it's usual.

What Steam Seasonal sales?

last I checked they only had them in Winter and Summer. thats more like... bi-seasonal... semi-seasonal? one of those..

Point being, There were some pretty good deals on Origin, while Steam didn't have any Spring sale.

Also, PvZ is free on origin this month, get it while you can.

Yeah, giving away Dead Space for free was a very hard decision for EA. They really took a hurting on sales by doing it.

Much like Valve giving away L4D2... everybody who wanted it already had it by that point.

Except L4D2 has replay value.
