Steam Summer Sale Begins

The Steam Store shows the eagerly anticipated Steam summer sale is underway, kicking off an 11 day extravaganza. Here's word:

July 11th, 2013 - Steam has launched our 2013 Summer Getaway Sale, with massive discounts on hundreds of PC, Mac and Linux titles. Right now, you can take advantage of up to 75% savings on hits like Bioshock Infinite, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Grid 2, Don't Starve and more.

The Summer Getaway Sale offers you more ways to save than ever, with a hundred Daily Deals launching over the next eleven days. Check back often to take advantage of our eight-hour deep-discount Flash Sales. You can even help select what goes on sale with our Community's Choice Voting Sales.

For the first time, buying discounted games at this year's sale now earns you an all-new collectible in the form of Trading Cards. Collect, trade and craft over 50 new sets of cards, including 10 Summer Getaway Trading Cards that can only be earned during the sale.

Who among us mere mortals can aspire to such a thing?! Only the Titan known as Prez can claim such riches, surely!

Is there another "Prez' in here? Riches - HA! Although I plan on getting Bioshock Infinite and Far Cry 3. Is the GMG 20% off code valid with BI? That would make it 24 bucks on GMG if it is. I doubt Steam could beat that price.

EDIT: and for $2.50 I can finally pick up Hotline Miami and see what the fuss over it was all about.
The code has expired on GMG, it still works with the season pass but not with the full game.

Don't all of your Steam friends already own Snuggle Truck?

Don't give him ideas. Or you'll find out it's no fun being run over by a snuggle truck.
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

I hope the Community Choice voting ends up with Dishonored for $10. Haven't picked that up yet...

I'm not at all trying to sway your voting, btw

Selfish as I am, I'd rather have 40% off of FarCry 3. I already have Dishonored.

You hear me, GabeN?

Yeah some of the deals are rather 'meh' I picked up walking dead for a buddy of mine from gamefly for $9.88 two days ago.

I really only want Far Cry 3 for cheap, and, uhhh... I guess maybe bioshock infinite, but they both need to go under $20 for me to bite. Other than that, yeah, I'm finally actively making headway in whittling down my "Still need to play" list, the last thing I need to do is add 15 games again.

I've got a ton of PS3 stuff I picked up in the last few weeks. Enough that I might not get through it all before the PS4 launches...

Little surprised Bioshock is %50 off seeing as it just came out. I'm a little flummoxed Skyrim Legendary is only %40 off on a flash sale. An awesome deal to be sure but I was hoping for %50 or %60 off. I'll probably pick it up when I get home, been waiting for it to go on sale for awhile now, my patience on this matter may be over

Antichamber looks interesting as well, is it the kind of game you can play for 15 minutes and feel like you've done something? Easily put down and picked back up kinda thing?

Honestly, I have so much stuff on steam already (a list for old games, a list for games I've not played yet, a "classics" list, and a list for stuff I want to replay) that unless a game pops up that I'm REALLY interested in, I'm going to largely pass this years sale...





At least that's what I'm telling myself right now...we'll see how long that lasts.

Like the Nordstrom anniversary sale that starts next week?
You know your days of collecting games are over, when your spouse says: "Awwww, that will fit perfectly to XYZ! And besides, you already have enough games you haven't even touched!" "True, but ..."

The Sale is great and all, but I suggest that you take a look at Green Man Gaming before you purchase something. They almost always have better prices (throughout the year I mean). And they also give you a steam key, so you can redeem that if you want. Right now, Bioshock infinite is 50% on Steam, but it's 50% on GMG and they also have a 20% off ticket that you can combine...

AWWWWW FUCK IT! Who REALLY NEEDS to pay bills and fuck my marriage too, Hell she was probably going to leave me ANYWAY, HELL "I" WOULD LEAVE ME! Might as well give her the reason on a silver platter!

" Yeah honey I was GOING to pay the bills but, YEAH I SAID "FUCK IT".

Ah well the next time you guys hear from me I'll probably be in a homeless shelter after my woman tosses my dumbass to the curb.

...I just hope they have a computer there...

So wait, Bioshock Infinite is already 75% off? Since it didn't seem to be quite my cup of tea I've held off to get it on sale but thought maybe a year after release or so. Oh, I just checked. 50% off. Hmmm, $29.99 ... do I knuckle under and get it or wait? Think I might get it for less on a daily deal?
It is a daily deal, it won't be cheaper than this on Steam.
You can get it for $25 from greenmangaming today
