Steam Summer Sale Begins

The eagerly anticipated Steam Summer Sale is now underway, and will run through July 22nd, with new deals to be added every day. The website seems to be struggling at this moment to meet demand, so a little refreshing may be required. Word is: "The annual Steam Summer Sale is on now. Gamers will find amazing deals on thousands of games. The Summer Sale will again feature more than straight discounts, offering Daily Deals, Flash Sales, and 'Customer Choice' Sales, the latter allowing gamers to vote for a title on a given list to be put on sale for a limited time." They list a; the Summer Sale 2012 Publisher Packs, there is a list of top sellers on sale down at the bottom of the page, along with a selection of flash sales that only last a few hours each, like Deus Ex: Human Revolution for 75% off for the next five hours. Here are today's specials:

This sale needs to end now.. I've bought Metro 2033, the Company of Heroes package, the Alan Wake bundle, Borderlands GOTY. My wallet is weeping.

Same, was it because of the silver pack of all the valve games? As I recall, thats why I did mine, so I didn't get dupe games, and maybe sell the games at some point.
Why I bought HL2 I created a new account, as I wasn't sure how Steam worked back then. I didn't realise it was separate to my original account with Half-Life on it. It doesn't really matter but I'd have preferred to keep my older account.

I've already completed the Pillar of Community award, have 7 years of service (I had an older Steam account but bought games on a newer account and ended up sticking with it) and just need to keep up with the voting to max out the Steam Summer Sale 2012 badge.

Looking back I shouldn't have done it. I'd rather have had an 8 year badge, and a lower digit steam ID number

It wasn't horrid, but Steam was clearly under pressure, my download rate varying from 2 Mbps to 0. Stayed at 0 for as long as 20 seconds a couple of times (and I know my Internet wasn't dead because I was web browsing on the other monitor).
I got 3.4MB/s downloading Max Payne 3 and it was consistent, so no complaints here. The store has been inaccessible a few times but it's been much more reliable than previous sales. Overall I think Valve has done a pretty decent job.

Ok, I'm already about $50 dollars into this... where is the 75%+ off Skyrim, Batman AC, etc.

ps. I bought Warlock: Master of the Arcane when it was 5 bucks... easily the best 5 dollars I have spent. However the DLC appears to not be functional? I'll try to figure it out once my eyes recover from the 9 hour marathon Warlock game I played yesterday.

Steam fucking POS Bullshit...

The one and only game I went into this sale wanting... And steam gives me errors while trying to buy it (not the first time)...

-Alamar

Which one? I'll buy it for you and you can paypal me the money (or gift an equivalent game when Steam is working again for you).

Thanks for the offer, but it had already expired when I posted... Otherwise I wouldn't have cared as much, since I would have had other ways to do it (like what you suggested).

I just noticed they have GTA IV for $9.99, and L.A. Noire for the same price.

Add in Skyrim for $39.99, and this could get kind of expensive. But OMG those all look good.
I think those are all sales that end on july 22nd. You should wait until then to buy, because they are likely to go on sale for lower in the next 10 days.

Yep, good advice and I'm going to take it. Thanks!

But damn those are good deals.

I'd buy Anno 2070 right now if it weren't for the machine-limit DRM. With it, maybe a $15 purchase at most.

I refuse to buy it with the 3 machine limit. Which is a shame, since it looks neat.

I'll just give my money to other more deserving games...

If anyone likes worms reloaded, its $2 to get the GotY upgrade DLC pack right now (includes all DLC from the game) its a flash sale only for 6 more hours.
http://store.steampowered.com/sub/13771/

And I picked up the tribes ascend for $5 (daily)

Almost bought it - but I had it already.....not the pack itself, but had bought all of the DLC when it was super cheap....not the first time I would have bought something I already have!

Hmm... I missed that one because I had to sleep. I'd even voted for it to go on sale. I'd much prefer it if each sale lasted 12hrs but there were several overlapping, so it was constantly changing. As it is people are going to miss sales and get annoyed (that's why Valve added the countdown timers in the first place).
voted ones are 8 hour sales, 3 per day

.the timers had another day left on them for daily deals....but they just refreshed......
/edit: nm, I forget that they have them overlap....

Yeah, the daily deals now overlap, but Thursdays deals now end tonight, instead of Sat night.
