2013 Steam Summer Sale

113 posts in this topic

I believe it begins today so feel free to post what you bought, plan on buying or just current and upcoming deals.

If this is your first time participating in the steam summer sale there are some things you should know. Some deals only last a few hours and the deals can range from 10 to 75 percent off or more. Most games do go on sale so try to practice patience. This is a great opportunity so don't miss out on picking up a game or 30. Happy shopping.

I was about to make this post haha.

 

I probably won't buy as much as usual since Amazon, Green Man Gaming, and some other sites now offer sweet deals throughout the year, but I'll probably end up dropping cash anyway lol.

 

I'm looking for a Sleeping Dogs complete pack (all DLC, not just 10 or so that some packs have) for hopefully $10-12

Dishonored for cheap

Far Cry 3 for cheap

 

I may finally get the Hitman pack with the old games since I got Absolution some time back, just to complete the set

Maybe Max Payne pack too

 

And I'm sure a lot of Indy titles, Fez for instance, etc.

Far Cry 3 potentially will be 24 dollars tomorrow for anyone who hasn't played it.  Go out there and vote if you want that over Dishonored and Borderlands 2.  I own all three so I couldn't care less either way....

I voted Dishonored because at $10 that's a way better deal than FC3 at $24.  I'm bummed FC3 isn't cheaper than that, I'll just wait.

 

If Dishonored wins I'll most definitely pick that up. 

 

I'm learning toward Counterstrike GO right now for $5, haven't picked that up yet.  Maybe a 4-pack of LFD if my friends will commit to some co-op.

same as borderlands 1 if you played that. it's fun if you enjoy character progression. i never got around to finishing it.

 

dishonored was fun but my advice to those who haven't played it would be to play it at the highest difficulty and don't max out blink and time stop. they make the game a breeze, even on the highest difficulty.

I'm sure you guys would say Dishonored at $10 is worth it though?

    • And yes, Smitty would've been absolutely hell on wheels in MMA.
    • Smitty would've tried to have literally killed Talib for that poo he pulled on Philly in the SB.
    • SSDs are mostly good if you need fast read or write speeds, eg watching or editing large files like raw audio or video.  They won't help much for standard stuff, and are one of the larger premium price points.  They are very nice in that they produce less heat and are more stable, no spinning discs, but you won't notice much of a performance gain for general use. The biggest bang for your buck is RAM.  I always get as much RAM as I can afford.  That will improve performance of everything on the system.  Upgrade CPU/cores next, for overall performance. Again, depending on what you're doing, the graphics card can make as big a difference as anything else.  That's mostly for gaming and video playing/editing, however.  But with more and more video streaming going on, the graphics card can be very helpful to improve performance and quality.
