Steam Summer Sale 2012 Gift-All

Is this a precursor to a barrage of Magic Crystal gifts from Mantid? Is he trying to lull us into a sense of complacency?

Thanks to all who were generous enough to keep me rolling in games for the next six months.

Manach - Secret of the Magic Crystals (aka ponycorns for everyone!)
Prozac - Magicka
Greg - Borderlands GOTY

And of course Minarchist, for holding the poetry contest.

I have to say, it's quite satisfying to look at the "Friends Recently Bought" list in the Steam store and knowing that all of those are your own doing.

I've been infected too! Thanks for Trine 2 Mantid!

Reading this thread puts me in a good mood.

And the thread rolls on!

Though I made a ton of new friends this sale, every so often, as a new post is made here, I find a new possible friend and promptly add them

I had a blast with the sale. It was so great being able to gift the way I did. I managed to not buy anything for myself, yet I still ended up with a bunch of new games. I want to thank everyone for their generosity, and I wish I could have bought more for everyone else. Though the winter sale is another opportunity, hence why I'm stockpiling friends; the more people I have, the more hits I'll find of someone with a game on their wishlist I want to gift

I confess: I've been buying games here and there so that I have a stockpile of gifts come Christmas.

AAH! Mantid! Your Zombie Madness caught up to me with Fortune Summoners! Thanks buddy!

Shouldn't you be up at the North Pole?

I don't start trying to steal Christmas until November or so.

Thanks to Rallick for the late random gift of Tropico 4!

wow, and the zombie gifting continues!

Thats a hell of a gift too, of the few gifts I recieved and what I bought myself during the last sale Tropico 4 is the game i have played the most (outside of Secret World which had nothing to do with the sale)

I agree, I've put in 40 hours into Tropico 4 since being gifted it in the Steam sale.

I've never played any of the Tropico games. I've always heard great things about them, but it's always been something that I stare at from afar and then shrug my shoulders and move along.

Same, but with the Civ Series. They were On sale a few Summers(winters) back, and grabbed them. They've sat there mocking me evergvvvvvv

I'm sorry but the first thing I thought of when I saw this thread still going strong this morning was this...

I just realized, and forgot to buy some Popcap games for my mother in law.

Edit : I got the game for my mother in-law, so no more searching.

I would, Acetate. I love GRID and I was told to buy Dirt 2, but I'm definitely curious about 3.

Dirt 3 is pretty fun, despite the reduction of focus on the best part, which is rally. I've actually made it to the final tour of the final season, but have been holding off on finishing it.

Couldn't this discussion be moved over to either the Steam Trading or Steam Guest Passes and Games thread?

Sorry Archangel, the key was claimed a bit earlier via PM. I was hoping to get back to the site to update the thread but work got in the way.

I will definitely check those threads out should I obtain another code to give away. Thanks!

Hey, anyone interested in a Steam code for Dirt 3? I got one with a video card I bought earlier this year, and doubt I'll ever get around to playing the game.

UPDATE: claimed!

And for anyone interested, I obtained my Dirt 3 Steam key just prior to Thanksgiving for ~$7.50 off of ebay due to the glut of keys that came with video cards.

The Steam December sale ended last week, where were you?

Oh wait, it's next week.

Once the sale starts, which is expected to be Dec 20, it will get a lot of posts in a short amount of time, but you can follow the 2012 winter sale thread. Besides that, just occasionally check the Steam store home page for new daily and flash deals.

So when and where is there a December 2012 Steam Sale post of info? I've missed so many Steam Sales over the years because I'm traveling and whatnot and I don't want to miss out again. When do they start? Is there a better system than checking your wish list daily? Or more or less frequently than that?

Soooooo.... A very slight chance of next Thursday, or more like July 11th. Yes, I'm now that guy.

Someone pointed out somewhere that there haven't been any releases during the sale in the past and these are coming:

June 25 Company of Heroes 2 & Deadpool
July 9 Civilization V: Brave New World

Anyone care to guess about a date / make the new thread?

Is there already a Steam Summer Sale 2013 thread?
