The Steam Summer Sale (June 19)

#1 Edited by melonfarmerz (1120 posts) -

Alright so two more days until the Steam summer sale, easily the biggest gaming sale of the year. What are you guys wanting to pick up? What are you hoping goes on sale?

Don't Click This

I'm really hoping for a sale on DayZ and Dark Souls 2. Haven't picked up either yet.

Also, pro tip, never, ever buy a game until the last few hours of the sale or during a flash sale. A game on sale will almost always go down even more in price near the end.

Also, here's some pregame sales for you guys: Just Cause 2 (Honestly, the funnest open world game there is, is 3 bucks), Tiny and Big, and gunpoint

I was a rebel and clicked the link.

Best link ever. You can actually do your steam shopping on there.

Gonna finally pick up Monaco and probably a few other indies... other than that, I'd love a Hella cheap splinter cell blacklist. I'm going meager this summer though.

And get your CC and Steam account stolen.

10/10 would get phished again.

Gabe Newell is a false prophet, and GOG.com had great sales. Plus Humble Bundles are better

Yeah, Humble Book Bundle and Humble Movie Bundle, so much better than the Steam sales, aight!

lol it's a skin over the normal steampowered site. If you have a firewall blocking Steam, this happens.

That'd be a glorious way to phish though.

I just want AOM HD, some indie games, the Quake games, Unreal tournament games and Ikaruga.

#10 Posted by melonfarmerz (1120 posts) -

@TheEroica: I don't think Monaco's worth it unless you have 3 friends to play the whole thing with you. It used to be ok since you could do online multiplayer for the campaign but noone's ever online anymore. It's not really fun playing a 4 man heist alone lol.

#11 Posted by Blabadon (25926 posts) -

Hopefully some titles that my garbage laptop can run. Indies are a harder sell since a lot of them are on PlayStation systems with cross-buy and cross-save, giving me two or three methods of playing a game while bolstering my PSN Trophies which is much further along than my Steam account.

My backlog is so ridiculously huge, I don't think I will actually by much of anything

Why isn't this in the PC Forum?

#14 Posted by lostrib (34331 posts) -

Why isn't this in the PC Forum?

because everyone loves sales

Yup. Even if you're a massive cow, you can't resist Just Cause 2 for 2 dollars.

#16 Edited by coasterguy65 (5873 posts) -

I'm going to say the same thing I say before every Steam sale. I really don't have anything I want to buy. Then the subliminal messages start, and I end up buying games that I never play.

#17 Posted by uninspiredcup (7811 posts) -

I need that Assassins Creed with the black lady that looks like ps2 game.

#18 Posted by foxhound_fox (87640 posts) -

I'm wrestling with whether to save my money and buy a Wii U (I've already got tons of PC games in my Steam library that need playing... on the order of at least 40), or just give in and spend a cool Benji on another 40 games I'll never play. Lol.

Probably going to go with the Wii U as the GF has input on how I spend my money (as I hers, we are a couple) and she wants one as well.

It was like $12 two days ago.

Pretty much own every game that goes on a huge sale.

Glorious PC master Race! Bow down console peasants. :D

#22 Posted by Liquid_ (2438 posts) -

steam sales have been meh for the last 3 years ever since the coal x-mas sale fiasco back in 2010 or 2011

#23 Posted by melonfarmerz (1120 posts) -

Pretty much own every game that goes on a huge sale.

But this is when the new triple A games go on sale. Last summer, it was the big games of the year before that went for 5 bucks (Far Cry 3, Bioshock Infinite, Arkham City, Borderlands 2, The Witcher 2, and Max Payne 3 were all 5 dollars at some point.

This year, I'm willing to bet the same thing will happen to Blood Dragon, XCOM, Tomb Raider, Company of Heroes, Injustice, Metro Last Light, the South Park game, Thief, Rome II, and I'm hoping for Dark Souls 2, and Watch Dogs.

Also hoping for a really cheap Titanfall on Origin, 30 bucks right now is still too much.

#24 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (13403 posts) -

I've played just about everything already so probably nothing of worth for me.

#25 Posted by CrownKingArthur (4396 posts) -

i'll get a few things, if the price is right. i have been thinking about:

unreal tournament 3

quake 4

age of empires 2 and 3

age of mythology

rise of nations

60 fps

@melonfarmerz Lmfao, I clicked the link. Funniest shit I've seen in a while. Thanks bro. :P

#27 Posted by NoirLamia777 (2132 posts) -

Hopefully the Star Wars games are on sale, missed that last one.

Same here. Busted out laughing and had to explain it all to my wife. Good stuff.

I have Steam Cards from XMas still waiting for this! No idea what I want, the games will find me.

looking to buy either prototype or prototype2

Yeah, I'll be getting the 1080p and 60 fps if they are 75% off too

But seriously, I don't plan to get anything these sales. I already have too much of a backlog. Perhaps if some games are really, really cheap (than I just can't resist) or I see Age II HD: The Forgotten for a good price.

We should play sometime if you get the AOE or AOM games this sale :)

If Dark Souls 2 really reaches around 5-10 dollars then my summer will be complete.

Yeah I'd like to own those. It's hard for me to buy anything as I have over 300 games in my Steam library, but there is always something.

Apparently you can't read the OP, or a calendar for that matter.

#38 Posted by dommeus (9233 posts) -

Wolfentstein under £20 would be nice.

MGR: Revengeance under a tenner - would buy.

South Park: Stick of Truth under a tenner - would buy.

Sales on early access games like Divinity and Wasteland would too get a purchase.

There are probably more. We'll see.

#39 Posted by OhSnapitz (18107 posts) -

I'll check it out.. my steam library is anemic.

#40 Posted by gameofthering (10126 posts) -

Good thing I'm not that bothered about the sale since I have most of the games I want. I've also got a large backlog of games that I've never installed either.

The only thing I'd want is the DLC for Outlast but I no spare cash :( I suppose I could always sell the mass amount of cards I've gained over time.

There are a few games I want but I'll see whats on the daily.

#44 Posted by RossRichard (2335 posts) -

As many games with controller support that I don't already have as possible.

#45 Edited by blue_hazy_basic (27383 posts) -

Wasteland 2 I'd love to see on sale but I doubt it will. I have a ridiculous backlog and limited gaming time and I always say I'll buy nothing then come out the other side shell shocked having bought 20 games :P

#46 Edited by Jshoelace (428 posts) -

I have so many games already but there are a few I'm looking out for. Not that I ever play them though as always seem to either play stalker coc or trials evolution.

On my list..

Stalker: clear sky

Farcry 2 ( I have 1 and 3 so if this is cheap I may as well get it)

Dark souls 2

That's about it. I will no doubt pick up random games I will never play though.
