Steam's Summer Sale 2019 Live Now With Thousands Of Deals

Hope you've been saving up.

14 Comments

The moment PC gamers have been waiting for is finally here--Steam's 2019 Summer Sale is live with thousands of deals on games across every genre. The sale will run now through July 9, so you have about two weeks to claim anything that catches your eye.

This year, the theme is Grand Prix, and players can earn various rewards and even free games on their wishlist by participating in a new, competitive mini-game. To get started, Steam will ask you to pick a team, with the choices being Hare, Corgi, Cockatiel, Pig, and Tortoise. Choose wisely (but Corgi is obviously the right choice here). You'll be able to track each team's rankings on the Grand Prix page.

During the sale, you'll have a Boost Meter that enables you to earn points, and every day you participate, you'll increase your Boost Meter's capacity by 100. You'll also boost your capacity by 100 for every $1 you spend in the sale. To earn points, you'll have to complete various Grand Prix Quests in your Steam games, with each point you earn pushing you closer toward your next Boost. Boosting increases your team's speed in the race, and every day throughout the Grand Prix, random members of the first, second, and third-place teams will get the top item on their Steam wishlist for free (so update that wishlist now if you plan to participate). You'll also earn Grand Prix tokens as you earn points, which can be redeemed for various freebies at the Pit Stop, including chat emoticons, profile backgrounds, and more. And because this is a competition, you can also earn and coordinate attacks to decrease other teams' Boost levels.

Despite my extreme dislike of the Epic Store, they do have one point I agree on, Steam is getting lazy with it's customers. Steam is getting worse, and needs a good competitor.

This is more like the Steam(ing) Pile of Shit sale. Not a lot of any worth on sale. There are a couple of good offerings, but when something is really good, I tend to have it already, and the good stuff isn't marked down by a whole lot anyway. Steam sales used to be worth looking forward to, now they are not nearly worth my time.

GoG's Galaxy 2.0 is looking promising as a platform to combine my libraries, maybe it will also beef up enough to be my main store of choice now too (it nearly has been anyway for almost a year).

I'm a bit disappointed. There aren't a lot of amazing games at ridiculously cheap prices, and the handful of games I was most looking forward to picking up are only 20-30% off, which isn't much of a sale. But I have plenty of stuff I ought to be playing already without adding more to the pile.

And, yeah, I'm not loving this minigame. I think it's cool that they always have these sorts of things to spice of their sales, but this one just falls flat for me.

@thedarklinglord: get at least special thing you know you want to play. Not just try out, you wanna to play it right now, badly. It's ok to save money, but time doesn't come back.

You know you're suffering this if you're playing something of your backlog that resembles a game you can't stop thinking about and don't own. This happened to me playing Hard Reset while wanting so bad to play DOOM. I grabbed Doom at the first sale that happened.

I just found the minigame too complicated, but the deals are real.

I don't like this mini game very much. You just look at it and do nothing. Also no cards. But there is virtual currency and you buy backgrounds and emotes instead. Which is good in a way, cuz you just get the one you want. But it is starting to feel like stEAm ;o

I bet Corgi team are liking it though, they're winning by a large margin! XD

I am on team Tortoise! Team Tortoise for life!

I liked the event where we got stickers and put them together. That was fun! Do more of that.

Wasn't Hollow Knight just on sale for less than that a week or two ago?
