Valve has announced that the 2012 holiday Steam sale—you know, that event that lets you get tons of games for super cheap while somehow still spending more money than you wanted to—will continue through the weekend for a special "encore."

Here's the official blurb:

Gamers will have a final opportunity to get their favorite games on Steam. A select number of the most sought-after titles from the Steam Holiday Sale will reprise their biggest discounts for two additional days. The Encore Weekend begins at 10am PST on January 5th (Saturday) and run until 10am PST on January 7th (Monday).

Did you miss any great games when they went on sale? Think they'll pop up again over the weekend? We'll be keeping an eye out just in case.
