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:

Well...I guess this was a bit anticipated...

The Steam Store is experiencing some heavy load right now. Please try again later.

Remember, do not buy any game that isn't in a daily deal, flash deal or daily deal, always wait until the last day to buy games otherwise you might buy them more expensive if you don't wait for a deal for that game to show up.

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains. The stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

And, as happens EVERY SINGLE BIG SALE AND RELEASE, valve still hasn't upgraded their load balancing servers enough to handle the load.
This can be verified by checking the content server status, NONE of them are maxed out, so they have the bandwidth, they just can't use it.

As a general rule, if I'm even interested and it's under $5 I buy it. Anything over $5 has to be something I want--for instance, Rayman Origins is $15 right now. I'm interested, but not enough to bite at that price.

For games I own, I do the obligatory DLC check and pick up the extra content.

Then I wonder if games can go lower. Hard Reset, which is high on my list, is 75% off right now. It's $3.75. Is it really going to get an even greater discount? I'll wait, but damn, even at that price nobody should pass on it.

Love it--announce a sale that people have been waiting for and then can't handle demand.

I will pick up Grimrock on your recommendations.
Deux Ex too, put that one off long enough. Who knows what else.

I just think of all the games I already own and haven't finished yet.
