Steam Summer Picnic Sale Underway

As expected, the Summer Sale is now underway on Steam, or as they're calling this year's installment the Summer Picnic Sale. We can probably find more details when an announcement rolls in, but in the meantime, we can see that there are the usual discounts to be had, and this year's side game involves getting three free trading cards each day. Initial sales are for things like LEGO games for 30-75% off, the Arma franchise for 20-80% off, and the Call of Duty franchise for 50-67% off. Update: The announcement of this is now online:
The Steam Summer Sale has started! For the next 11 days*, take advantage of discounts on thousands of products, including games, videos, and software, as well as the exclusive Summer Picnic Sale trading cards.

G2A is still crushing most of those prices.
G2A sells stolen keys. You can't compete with free, and you can't compete with unethical businesses.

So if that's going to be your metric, you're going to be disappointed (and you may as well pirate it to begin with).

I've grabbed about 7 games so far but ironically seems the only places having Flash sales now, are the key sites.

Odd note, can't believe how much Dungeon Lords has been getting patched on Steam. Three times, in 6 months it's more than 11 years of the game! Zombie

The worst criminal in human history, undeniably. There has never been a figure in political history, so dedicated to destroying the prospects of organized human life on the planet, in the near future.

Honestly I'm a disappointed in this sale of the 35 items on my wishlist only 1 item was discounted more than 50%... and at that a point and click adventure. Meh.

Steam is such a fucking piece of garbage. Every sale the same bullshit with the client becoming unusable. How about buying some new hamsters with the billions of cash your fat, lazy, dumb asses are sitting on, Valve?

And, yeah, most underwhelming sale ever. Too bad for the publishers and Valve. Means I'll continue to take my business to GMG, CDkeys, Kinguin and G2A. You can easily get just about every single game of this so called "sale" cheaper on those other sites. And Valve does not get a 30% cut for being fat, lazy and dumb so it's all a huge win-win situation.

GMG pretty much always has a 20-25% discount (currently 25%) on any game... so if you buy anything with a lower discount than that you are crazy :p

Stellaris is a whole 10% off???

Guess I'll wait for the Winter sale or the eventual sale when Paradox has a million DLC's so the base game costs next to nothing.
I got way more than that off when I pre-ordered through GMG.

Distant Worlds is 50% off and it's a much better game, imo.

Fallout 4 for 50% off looks kinda good right now.

Yep. Anyone know where Season Pass is on sale?

Ah..no no, no season pass, still at full price.

Arma 3 Apex DLC was briefly listed at $27.50, seems now they fixed that and it's back @ $35.99

I just picked it up for 27.99 a few moments ago. Not sure why it's showing different for you?

Most likely because I'm in Canada, $27.99 US is about $36 CAN (+/-)

I would like to see Total War: Warhammer on sale... That's what I'm waiting for..

Looks like about 25% of the games on my wishlist aren't on sale at all. C'mon, at least toss out a 10% or something.

Virtually all of mine are only 10% off. I don't see a single game I want at a sale price I deem fair atm. And G2A is still crushing most of those prices.

At first I thought that was just going to be a lame parody, but by god it delivers in the end!

The 75% hitting the guy in the head was the cherry on top...
No, the cherry on the top is the sound effect of the 75% hitting the guy on the head.

I knew I should have waited to buy Prison Architect although I did get Spelunky for free with GOG so I guess I got the better deal At $10.
