    Arrow Steam Summer Sales

    It has begun.

    Or as I like to think of this time of year, 'Tis the season when Steam tempts Lemur into spending way too much money on games he does not need.

    Yep. Good. Keep me the hell away from these sales. I'm amazed by how quickly rational thought leaves my brain, and I start gibbering about how I can't afford NOT to buy it at that price!

    Anyone played "Don't Starve"? That appeals to me most out of what I currently see on sale.

    Also, if I see Prison Architect go on sale I may have to buy that....

    Vote for Dishonored for the next sale. I need to pick that up and $10 is an appealing price.

    Dont starve is a fantastic little game thats worth its full price. On sale it is more than worth it and you would be a fiend not to purchase it.

    It seems like they don't want me to buy stuff; I always get this message:

    There seems to have been an error initializing or updating your transaction. Please wait a minute and try again or contact support for assistance.
    Contacting support turns out to be a very frustrating experience, with the pages loading sloooooo...w.

    Meh. For the first time, I'm an unsatisfied Steam customer.

    It's because the sheer volume of Steam users have gone rabid and are purchasing everything.

    By the way, System Shock 2 for $5. I've heard it's great, I'mma get it.

    Also I highly recommend Dragon Age: Origins, which is on flash sale for the next 3 hours.

    Woot, knew there was a reason I held off getting that on GOG!

    And yes, it's great.

    I'm getting these 'Summer Getaway' trading cards when I purchase something. Is there any use for them besides selling them for a good price(Sold one for €1,-).

    It's the new Steam trading card thing.

    Basically, you can either sell them, or if you collect an entire set it will turn into a "badge" for your profile. Like an achievement, sorta.

    I only buy games under 5 bucks. I've made too many bad decisions with $10 and up games. Battlefield will likely be an exception. Maybe Rome II total war, but I've largely abandoned that franchise because the last 3 games were mod restrictive

    I am a weak, weak man. Just picked up Dishonored because ... well ... the sale mania got to me.

    Yeah, I know, it isn't even on a particular discount right now. Sigh.

    I voted for that on the 75% off vote, don't know why people voted for GTA IV, how many times has that been heavily reduced previously FFS?

    Something of a GTA clone, with more indepth melee combat, you don't get a gun until about 6 hours in. I didn't get around to completing it, but I did really enjoy what I played. Wasn't for off finishing it, it did get rather repetitive though.

    Certainly worth £5, or whatever that is in dollars.

    Decided to try the demo before I purchased it, which was a good call because I didnt really enjoy it.

    Vote for Reus, it is definitely a nice little game and the developers are supporting it!

    100% worth it. Hands-down one of the best games I've played recently. Better combat system than any dedicated fighter I've played recently. Excellent driving system, the cars are a treat to drive. The motorbikes aren't temperamental and take plenty to knock you off. At 75% off it really is a steal. BUY IT. Best bargain I've seen so far.

    Ah, missed it, maybe next time, though I didnt really like the combat system, it was too much button mashing for my taste.

    Note to self: You have now purchased three games, two on sale, one not. No more. Stop. STAHP. Until you have played all three, you are not allowed to buy anything else.

    The previous mega sale from steam as awful. Almost no good games getting deep discounts.. this one has so far been great. Just about everything I've wanted to see get a sale has gotten one.
