Steam Summer Sale Thursday

As the countdown ticks on, Valve confirms the Summer 2022 Sale will get underway on Steam on Thursday, as planned. There's a Steam Trading Cards and Badges in which SirActionSlacks explains the various non-nonfungible tokens this will involve. We also have this teaser from Valve that hints at other goodies that will be part of the festivities:
The Steam Summer Sale returns June 23 - July 7 with deals on all sorts of games. And with just a few days before it kicks off, we thought we'd prepare you for all of the EXTRA fun there is to be had:

  • Trading cards!
  • Badges!
  • Clorthax!

OK so Clorthax* refuses to say hi until you first show up to the sale, so that part's on him. But the other two, we've got you covered ahead of time with a video that shows just how smashingly fun it can be to collect trading cards and create badges!

See you June 23 at 10am PT - July 7th at 10am PT for the Steam Summer Sale!

-The Steam Team

*What we can tell you is Clorthax comes from the same minds behind such hits as:

  • Aperture Desk Job
  • The Steam Summer Sale 2021
  • Portal 2

**No sellable functioning hardware was damaged in the making of this video.

I always wondered why people would buy these. I guess some people want those badges really bad.
I always thought it was because it increases your level. I'm not even sure what a Badge does or is for, unless it a new background or emoji.

Yep, pretty much just XP for leveling your profile. They made those other, randomized rewards kind of obsolete now that you can pick exactly what you want from the points shop. That probably hurt the trading card market a bit.

Trading cards and badges! Woot!
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.

A truck is not a speech.A horn is not a voice.Occupation is not a protest.A blockade is not freedom,it blocks the liberty of all.
A demand to overthrow a government is not a dialogue.Expression of hate is not a difference of opinion.A lie is not the truth
