Is there an interest in seeing short-term stuff? Like, GOG has started posting "72 hour" sales. I imagine some (most?) people wouldn't see a notice until the sale was expired. But we did do some daily postings for the Steam sales, back in the day, so I ask.

I think it's fine to post about something short-term, but there are a lot of sales and giveaways out there (see https://www.reddit.com/r/GameDeals/ ).  At this point I only post if I see a particularly good deal on a game I've heard some buzz about, or if there's a new particularly interesting category of deals like the Epic store giveaways.

Borderlands 3 is available on Steam for a "limited time launch price" of $30, half off retail. Various other editions with DLC and perks are available for more.

Watch Dogs and The Stanley Parable are free on the epic store until March 26.

Watch Dogs was a major release, although I remember people being disappointed in it.  The Stanley Parable got rave reviews but is more of a concept game.  (Fittingly, I can't figure out if I have played The Stanley Parable or not.  I definitely played an partial version of it that was available for free years ago.  Steam says I own it but haven't played it.)
