Hide your wallet – The Steam sale has landed
The end of the month, that means pay-day for most, but if you were planning for a month of austerity – think again. This years Steam Summer Sale has just kicked off!
As most of you know, there is literally no way for PC-minded gamers to not make at least 10 impulse purchases throughout the duration of the sale. I suggest you deposit all of your savings in a safe bank account with no access to the details, in fact I’ll even go as far as to provide that service to you personally!
If for some reason you are a complete lunatic and my generous offer does not appeal to you, here are some highlights –
Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale – £3.25 – Adorable indie JRPG/trading sim.
Valve Complete Pack – £24.99 – Every Valve game in a nice affordable bundle, but you probably own all of these already.
The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition – £5.10 – Contains the Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles add—ons, which are probably the only 2 you really need, but for another £1.70 you can get the Deluxe Edition which includes all the DLC (insert obligatory Horse Armour Joke here)
The Assassin’s Creed Collectors Pack – £37.48 – One great game, one good game and one err… atmospheric game for the price of one (and a bit) full price game.
There are other great deals to be had, but Steam has slowed down to a crawl for me personally, there are likely to be some bargainous offerings in the daily deals that will follow in the days to come, so keep your eyes peeled.

That Valve deal is spectacular, and probably aimed at all the Steam users that haven’t really used Steam beyond being a tool to play a Steamworks title like Football Manager. With the F2P of Team Fortress 2 people are likely to be interested in Valve, and that deal is brilliant to get them to buy into their catalogue.
I do find it amusing to see Ricochet and Team Fortress Classic being £2 each while TF2 is nothing :D
For once I’m not really looking out for much in this sale. Such a backlog of titles I’ve already purchased in past sales!
I’ve spent £30 on old Battlefield games, can’t really afford much more til payday =/
It probably needs re-emphasising that the Valve complete pack *includes* Portal 2. The current deal is basically ‘buy Portal 2, get every single one of our games free’.
That’s, err, woah.
