Steam Summer Sale 2013 - It's never really over

So, when does the next Steam sale start? My pile is way not big enough.

Thanksgiving Sale, probably 4-ish weeks, and another 4 or so after that for the Winter Sale.

Right you are gentlemen. I will may be on a self-imposed purchasing hiatus until then.

There's typically a horror-themed mini-sale around Halloween, but that's just for games with the words "dead" or "zombie" in them (i.e. 40% of Steam).

There's also a week-long Thanksgiving mini-sale around -- wait for it -- Thanksgiving weekend. I remember the discounts being nearly as deep -- though for not as many games -- as the main Summer/Winter ones.

And the Winter Sale is mid-December, when we're all doomed. I think even my pile has a pile now.

Edit: Batman/Antibatman-hausered!

No love for Canada.

Guessing $2.87 is the amount in your steam wallet.

Or HL3. Probably.

It's pretty obvious - 2+8+7 = 17, like City 17. We're clearly heading back there soon, in Half Life 3.

I've got at least one copy of the original KotoR and The Binding of Isaac to give away. The only pre-req is you have to friend me on steam. Squee9 is the name. I'm a sucker fo rhymes.

I envy whoever gets to experience Binding of Isaac when it first gets its hooks into you.

Oh man, it really does not end...thanks so much to Mortalgroove for Terraria!

These aren't Steam games, but still.

I have the following to the first non-grinder to ask:

Mirror’s Edge
Dead Space 1
C&C: Red Alert 3 Uprising
Trine 2 Complete
Mark of the Ninja
Eets Munchies
Brutal Legend

Thanks to Interstate78 for TakeDown.

I have been looking at Vegas, guess a spiritual game about it is good enough

Came home last night from the pub to find an e-mail stating that Rallick gifted me Gone Home. What an awesome surprise!

I now proclaim Rallick to be the bee's knees.

Public accolades to maverickz for being a sharemeister and sending Mark of the Ninja my way! Long live the sharemeister!

Mark of the Ninja, claimed.

I have received the Fallout collection from Lothars, which apparently has come to me along a string of passers-around.

I now believe I have GOG copies of all three of these games already, however. (And I certainly played them when they were new.)

So: Who still needs to play these?

I would be happy to take them, I only played 1 back in the day. I would love them as laptop games if noone else claims them

IT SHALL NEVER DIE!!!

I came home from work to find a gift of Miasmata from Mantis. Thanks a ton, been looking forward to trying it

Mantid surprised me with Costume Quest. Thanks man!

I will just leave this here, if only as evidence that this thread should be closed

Most of the comments after seem to indicate this is in fact a leak which means, I'm heavily betting Valve may change those dates. Since their public now that means their competitors know and if their smart they'll change the dates, maybe earlier than they wanted to surprise those who thought they knew when the Steam sale would be and catch competitor services off guard.

Thanks to Mantid for the gift of Anodyne!

EDIT: Fixed.

It truly never ends. Just got a surprise gift of Hamilton's Great Adventure from Dejanzie! Thanks!

I would like to thank Obirano for my surprise gift too!

Nothing like a little bit of Steam Sunshine on a cloudy day

Thanks to Dr. Awkward for Arma II - I wondered elsewhere on the forums whether the campaign was any good, and he kindly provided the opportunity to find out for myself. Any headshots shall be accompanied by the warcry 'And you can thank the Doc for that one!'. It needs a little work, but it gets the message across.

I know we're using the thread to thank people for gifts, but since November is almost over, I move we shut down the Steam Summer Sale thread and create the "Steam Winter Sale in coming..." thread to engage in fruitless and futile speculation on when the sale will commence.
All in favor?

Yeah, I'm surprised it hasn't already been created, considering the Fall / Thanksgiving sale should be starting very soon.

It's done.
