Steam Sale (expected to) Starts Today
 
Rumour has it Steam's Summer Sale will begin today.

As a reminder to myself to not go mad on buying games I decided to use the steam profile calculator to remind me how much I have that I haven't played anyway. And here it is

My Steam Profile
(from SteamDB)

  • Worth: 816.85
  • Games owned: 134
  • Games not played: 73
  • Percentage: 54%
  • Hours spent: 331.3h

Team Fortress 2 just had a nearly 1GB update, anything to do with the "event" going on today?

We'll know for sure in about 2 and a half hours. I'm hoping there isn't anything especially tempting the first couple days since I'm still waiting on the check from my last gig and I would really like to eat this weekend.

I already brought Killing Floor last weekend when it was 3ish but am really hoping to see Dishonoured for a good price maybe with DLC in the summer sale (when it begins :scream:).

I doubt I will buy as much as last year when I picked up several games.

Sale is up and running now and Dishonored is one of the first possible community's choice games, so you better vote for it if you want it on sale right away. ;)

^ Already voted on it so if it wins 5.10 if not it will be 8.99 so either way am getting it later. I just brought Skyrim: Legendary Edition (All DLC) for 17.99 ;)

There are a bunch of games that got updated to support the trading card functionality, which recently went out of beta (no doubt in anticipation of this year's sale.)

I got 5 cards and sold them, which means I guess I'm not getting the Steam Summer Sale badge, but I don't particularly care for the gameification of the platform in the first place.

By the way, if any of you foolish people don't have Dark Souls yet, GET DARK SOULS. DO IT. DO IT NOW. Or wait until it's $7.49 again, which it probably will be, but it's still a bargain at $14.99. I would just recommend that you have an Xbox 360 controller for it, as it is nigh unplayable with a keyboard/mouse combo. Don't even try, not once. It is an absolutely great game, though, just be prepared for something more challenging than your usual action RPG fare.

Picked up Chivalry for just over 4 to go with my Skyrim, hopefully Dishonoured with appear in a flash sale or daily to drop a little bit more though will pick it up still if it remains 8.99 over weekend.

Nice little stunt Value and/or 2K Games pulled with CivV: Brave New World. It just came out this week and was 10% off if you pre-ordered it - which I did only a few hours before that period ended.

Then before the week is out, they put it in as a flash sale at 33% in a big FU to the people that pre-ordered it.

:rolleyes:

I'm just venting, don't mind me... :)

So far just Don't Starve and Surgeon Simulator 2013 for me.

I was debating Grid 2 but that will likely go even lower in price in the next 6 months and my backlog is already huge.

Just got Leviathan Warships based on the cool trailers. Also got the Portal bundle, Thomas Was Alone and Telltale's Walking Dead. Looking at also getting the Anno 2070 DLCs, but I have to see if I can get my retail version synced with Steam first.

Edit: I was thinking about Dark Souls, but the poster above give the impression its a lazy port, so I might not bother getting it for PC and just keep an eye out at the local EB store's bargain bin for a PS3 copy.

Not a lot of use if you already own the retail version of Civ IV like I do. Just one of those things...
