Brace yourselves – The Steam Summer Sale is here

IT BEGINS

It may be colder than my attitude towards donating charitably to human rights organisations, but it’s about to get a little hot in here. Prepare your wallets and start lubing up your credit card account folks, because the heat is indeed on in the Steam Summer Sale.

So what kind of deals can you grab in the possibly welcome week before payday? Well for starters RPG favourite Torchlight 2 is going for $4.99 right now, while you can also nab some newer titles such as a pre-load of Dead Rising 3 for $37.49.

Then there’s the usual flash sales which consist of rock bottom prices on four games for eight hours only. At the time of writing, that includes games such as Anno 2070, Naruto Too Damn Long Title, Castlevania 2 and Half-Life 2. That’s three-quarters of games that are not kak for under $10.

As usual, there’s going to be a lot of binge-buying. My top tip? If you buy any games, buy them all as gifts. That way, when buyers remorse kicks in later and you’re faced with an even bigger backlog, you can at least sell them off.

Or don’t buy anything, really. My own personal backlog is ridiculously high right now, so I might just skip this sale until the Christmas one. Yep, just have to ignore those 75% off stickers and carry on my merry way and please Gabe don’t discount any more Hello Kitty games I’m begging you here.

So, bought anything decent so far?

        But now you see, if console games never had sales then your argument is a good one. The point is that PSN and Live have weekly sales; and also some bonanza sales as well. Mirrors Edge the other day was R45 on PSN; etc…many more examples.

        So yeah Steam Sales are great but truth be told I don’t quite see what all the fuss is about given that the other players have had to follow suit – I love competition!

          Steam has sales daily. The summer sale is just much larger discount margins. There’s also Humble Sales weekly, which activate your games on Steam.

            Well seems like I should craft my first badge sooner rather than later.

            Need to get 5 more cards for XCOM and I still have 1 card left to drop.
            Not sure what other games I want to get badges for.

            June 20, 2014 at 08:48

            no no no. You need the summer sale badge.

            Edit: From summer sale cards.Yu get them by doing stuff during the event like trading and voting and buying over $10 worth of stuff.

            It will get more expensive when it hits Beta. Right now It gets boring when you are geared up and I still prefer DayZ Mod but I would still buy it now while it is cheap.New patch just came out so I am playing it a bit. Just crafted a bow and killed an idiot who thought a gun > bow. He won’t try to rob me again 😛

            Edit: Also buy Arma2 Combined ops and play DayZ Epoch with us.

            With DayZ it is never a good thing. You need some basic training cause it is completely different to other games in terms of controls.

    The only games you should be getting for cheap is The Witcher 1 and The Witcher 2, and then use those codes on GOG.com to get discount for The Witcher 3.

    Don’t waste your money on Steam Sale. Waste your money on The Witcher 3 collector’s edition going up for pre-order soon.

    Don’t support DRM. Support DRM FREE games like The Witcher 3.
