The Steam Summer Sale is on!

emptywallet

It‘s that time of the year, when PC gamers, who think they’re saving money, spend pretty much all their expendable income on game’s they’ll probably never get the time to play! Yup, that’s right, it’s the Steam summer sale; a perilous time to be a wallet, but an excellent time to be a gamer.

For the next few hours, you can get up to 75% off off great games like Bioshock Infinite, Dark Souls, Borderlands 2, Hotline Miami, Don’t Starve in the daily and 8-hourly flash sales. You’re going to want to keep a keen eye on Steam, because these deals are mad, and changing fast.

Here’s a handy steam Sales tracker to help keep you on top of things.

Bioshock Infinite is currently half price, at $29.99 – while Borderlands 2 is going for a song at just over $10 You’d be silly to miss em, but you’d better  HURRY!

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

Don't stop now.... you're having a good time


  • Mossel

    Got me Bioshock 1 & 2 for $5 each!

    • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

      Shaweeeet!

      • Mossel

        Ah I wanted to do a remote installation, but I turned my pc of at home…

          XD

  • Craig Boonzaier

    Oh noes, my poor credit card.

    Now i’m gonna find useless excuses to buy games that i will never play, cuz my Steam library is already to damn full and I real…. oh look badges and trading cards!

    • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

      I KNOW I KNOW!!!! GAAAAAAAAAAAHH

    • Trevor Davies

      I can just see those trading cards becoming a problem, my OCD tendencies will go into overdrive lol

  • PointMan
  • matthurstrsa

    Picked me up some Tiny Tina DnD DLC! Oh yeah!

    • Trevor Davies

      I finished it (once so far) over the weekend, it’s a good one.

  • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

    My Credit card is ready. My sanity and calmness, not so much!

  • Theo Steenekamp

    HEEY, that is not correct. I will have you know, I bought Worms Ultimate Mayhem and played it once.

  • Scruff304

    Already got myself CS: GO last night for 5 dollars… And day one not even over… This could prove expensive…

  • Hammersteyn

    I like GOG more for three reasons.
    1. Most of the games on Steam I have played already.
    2. The ones I haven’t played on Steam I don’t really care for.
    3. GOG has more classics and I love feeling nostalgic.

    • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

      I used to feel like that, then a friend reminded me that although nice to be nostalgic, there are proper cool games that HAVE to be played

      • Hammersteyn

        Agreed, except I play them on console long before the Steam special, but if I did see a title on Steam for a reduced price i would be all over it.

        • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

          Like a fat kid on a cupcake. Already made my first purchase O_O

          • Wtf101

            And here’s my 180 for the week, and you can say I told you so. Just saw Velvet Assassin for $1.49. Yes yes I know, not the greatest game ever, but I have been looking for this game for a while now.
            It’s now officially the second cheapest game I ever bought. Cheapest I ever got was IL Sturmovic for R7.00 at CNA…

          • Wtf101

            And I downvoted you on the fat kid/cupcake crack. As a fattie, I take offence. One cupcake?????

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            I thought fat ppl were jolly?

          • Wtf101

            Oh, so now we are stereotyping????

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Here, have some LACISM as well :P

            Just to balance it out ;)

          • Wtf101

            Here, have some nightmare fuel

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Haha, careful, you just excited some ppl with that one

          • Wtf101

            Ah well… then we’ll just chalk that up to my good deed of the day. Seriously though, anything you getting on the sale?

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Yessir. Got my XCOM DLC a short while ago. I’m looking to get some 75-90% discounts.

      Gah!!! The Psycho pack is on special… DAMN YOU, DAMN YOU TO HELL

      • LordCaptainAwesomeness

        The wallet has cried…. so so much …and the sale has not hit full swing yet…

  • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

    I’ve got a new rule for myself. Minimum 75% off or NO SALE

    • Trevor Davies

      I try very hard to stick to a $100 limit for the entire sale. Last night when I saw Bioshock Infinite it was almost insta-buy, until I saw the season pass too & realised it would be half my budget gone lol

      • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

        Duuuude, if you pay $100 for a game you are effing MAL!

        • Trevor Davies

          No man, $100 in total for everything I buy over the sale, not for A game. That would be mal, may as well buy a console lol

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Ahhh, so you have a R1k budget.
            #BlerrieJealousAdmiralChief

          • Trevor Davies

            I’m worried it’s going to go quickly, there’s a lot of stuff I haven’t bought because of my “no-preorder & wait for all DLC” policy.

          • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

            Haha, indeed. I have that policy too. That and the sub $10 or sub FIVE DOLLAH and the 75% and I just realised I have a lot of rules o_O

      • Kromas

        I have a rule as well. Keep buying till my phone send me an sms saying I have no money left.

        • Admiral Chief Groot Wors

          XD

  • Kromas

    All hail the gaming overlord Gabe!

    So many games, so little time!

  • DrKiller

          • ToshZA

            Yeah, just came from checking the new ones out. Thankfully (or not, depending on your perspective) there’s nothing interesting on right now.

  • Rags

    Got You Need a Budget last night. So no more games for me.
