The annual Steam Summer Sale has begun with ongoing sales for the rest of the month from June 19 to June 30.

Much like Steam's winter festivities, you can also take part in the Summer Adventure. "Offered for free, the Summer Adventure offers the chance to earn in-game items, community rewards, and even free games by collecting Summer Adventure Trading Cards."

You'll want to check back frequently, since the best deals come in the Flash Sales and Daily Deals, but the event is kicking off with the deep discounts of 75-80% off big titles like The Witcher 2 (currently $4), Far Cry 3 ($7.50), and XCOM Enemy Unknown ($7.50).

Any deals you're leaping on now, or any games you've been waiting all summer for this sale to pick up? Let us know in the comments below!

If you like 4x space strategy games, it's fantastic, I spent over 100 hours on one single massive campaign alone against 4 AI's. Tho if you're not into that sort of thing and lack patience then I wouldn't recommend it.

Also that game is old, they patched it to 64-bit but is not multithreaded, the game will severely lag on the most high end i7's late game when you have massive amounts of units and star systems.

When browsing the different offers, I mostly think two things: 1. Already have it. 2. Already have something similar that I haven't played yet.

Still, I'm looking forward to this years sale more than the last year, because I have a little more money to spend now and there are a few games that aren't like something I already have. I'll wait for them to go down to 5 euros or less or wait for another sale. I'll eventually get the game I want for the price I want and in the meantime I'll try to reduce my backlog.

On other news some very snazzy HD 60fps gameplay videos of Dead Rising 3 in the Steam forums, from an official dev post.


Nothing at all in the first round of sales for me... grr Valve-- I want you to take my money. Try harder.

A man who never learned to count to 3 doesn't deserve our hard-earned cash

Everyone should boycott Steam until Valve finally decides to announce it

This seems more a reaction to GOG than a planned summer sale. Last year it was late july through august, far more than 11 days. What is this garbage?

<< LINK REMOVED >> I recall that GoG (on more than one occasion) has had a large sale just before a large Steam sale, so I'd say it's the other way around. I also thought it would come later in the summer period and am also surprised that GoG's sale will last longer than Steam's *and* finish on the same date.

If it wasn't always the same 150 games on sale that I already own, I'd be angry because I'm broke and will be until the 30th probably. At this point I'm only in it for the trading cards until one of the 100 games on my WL goes on sale.

Ugh, Witcher 2 back at $4. I just started playing through the first one. Do I buy now, or wait (chances are it will go on sale again for $4 eventually)

<< LINK REMOVED >> It's $4. Why wait in hopes of getting the game for $3.75??

BUT... You might want to put off playing it for a few months. The less time between 2 and 3 the better.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Get it now on Steam and then get a free GoG copy of it. That's what I did (back when it was released for SteamOS and at 4 euros), but mostly because I couldn't wait for it to go on sale at GoG again. Otherwise, I would have bought it directly from GoG.
