Steam Summer Sale 2016

Steam Summer Sale 2016

#1

June 23rd, who’s ready?

This is the first year I have actually been excited for it since I finally have a Mac that can handle the majority of non AAA games, which is what I’m more interested in playing on my computer over console anyways.

#3

Just a heads up, looks like this kicks off in half an hour (noon CST).

#5

So, for those of you who have participated in these Summer Sales in the past, is this par for the course?


#6

#7

I caved…


#8

And bought what? I’m super underwhelmed so far.


#9

Welcome to every Steam Sale since like 2010.


#10

Really, it’s been all down hill since then? All I used to hear about is that sales on PC blow away the sales on console, but I guess with all of the sales/free games that now come with the PS+/Gold, that’s not exactly the case anymore?


#11

Eh, not really I guess. It’s probably just because I already own like 85% of the games that end up going on sale.


#12

What do you guys think about this buy?

And do they not have daily or flash sales anymore?


#13

I just usually wait til the winter to get stuff on Steam… and then never play it.


#14

Alright, these are some games under $10 I’m tempted to get so far. Does anybody have any strong objections?


#15

Undertale, and four other games that were pretty cheap and have been on my wishlist for forever. Nothing too exciting other than Undertale.


#16

Dammit, I might have to get Pony Island.


#17

Yeah, most of those little indie games, including undertale, her story, read only memories, and many more I have already purchased in a humble bundle for much cheaper than anything i have seen on a steam sale. Humble Bundles are such a good deal, these sales have a hard time comparing.

Keep in mind, I’m filtering by Mac games, so some Windows only games I may be missing.


#18

I mostly stopped with the game bundles just because I kept buying games that I couldn’t even play. Which is exactly what I’m doing with the Steam Sale. Which is why I haven’t Steam Sale’d for the past few years. But this thread made me look, so I blame you.

What I have been bundling lately are books and comics, though. I need to stop. I have a problem. Even though I tell myself books and food are the two things I wouldn’t give myself a hard time spending money on.


#19

Corrected that for you. A library is a library, no matter where you take it.


#20

Speaking of Her Story, even though I haven’t played it yet, if you have any interest at all, you would be dumb to pass it up at $3, even though the $6 total price tag aint much different.

Oh, add this to the list too:

And I think I own this on 360, but when am I going to boot that up again? I’ve heard great things about Stacking:

Ugh, but then this gets tempting, but I already own a quarter of those games on console…

Double Fine Bundle

So I guess in that case I would probably only buy this instead of the bundle:
