Is there anything you've got on your wishlist that you're holding off on buying because of the upcoming Steam Summer Sale?
I'm hoping for The Witcher 2 and Trials Evolution.
I'm more likely to keep an eye on GMG from now on. They can't compete on the scale of sales Steam has during the summer and holidays but on individual games, especially newer ones they are incredible. Years of Steam sales have made it so i have all the big collections and bundles that matter to me and i've been buying games one at a time as they come out or go on sales for the first time since the last 18 or so months.
In any case, not much for me this summer. Maybe Tomb Raider, maybe Fez but otherwise i don't really see anything until later this year.
I have so many Steam games from past sales I can't even think of what I want until I see the deals. Maybe a deal on Prison Architect but it's weird to see games still in Alpha go on sale.
For those saying Borderlands 2 just a heads up that Amazon has a pretty good deal on it right now. They all come with Steam keys as well.
Basically Borderlands 1 GOTY edition, Borderlands 2, Borderlands 2 season pass for $22 total. The extra character classes aren't included but they are on sale for $5 each also.
The past couple of Steam sales I've bought pretty much everything I've wanted that's on Steam, the Game of Thrones rpg is the only thing I can think of that I want to go on sale. There's a couple of indie games also but they are cheap enough that I can buy them whenever.
Edit: I've thought of something, Borderlands 2 DLC, I haven't bought any of it yet and I have been meaning to get back into that game.
I was hoping for Borderlands 2, but I looked at some gameplay today and realized I probably won't like Borderlands 2 after not liking Borderlands 1.
So right now it's:
That's it so far. I don't expect to get those all, but it's what I'm interested in.
Maybe, maybe Black Ops 1 and 2, but only if I can get em both for real cheap as I only really play the single-player in those games.
I'm hoping No Time To Explain goes on sale, cos yo... that'd probably work out pretty nice.
What sort of say do you have in that?
I can set the maximum sale price of the game in Steam at any time, but I don't know how they decide who is in the sale.
We've been notified on the date of the sale in advance, and we plan to organize a gameplay update at the same time. We're relying on the trend of games getting a promotion boost and sales spike on Steam when they update with new content, so we'll make the most of the sale.
Will probably just browse through offers and see if something interests me, but if I'd have to specify something, perhaps Blood Dragon. Could also consider a package containing both that and FC3, if only to see the original game running well on a PC, after that struggling PS3-version.
