Steam Summer Sale 2013 - It's never really over

BL2 Psycho DLC, Far Cry 3+Blood Dragon, Prison Architect, Poker Night 2 (though I may pick that up today, since it's less than $3.50), a few gifts, and maybe some impulse buys. I'm always looking for a good bargain on some indie game.

I'm betting on after July 4th week for the start, if there's a sale at all. I've had the feeling they might be shooting themselves in the foot with the big sales, but I'm also not swimming in cash like Gabe.

Looking over my Wishlist, seems like I've got indie hits and oddball simulators.

The Swapper
Gunpoint
Don't Starve
Amnesia

Civ V

Surgeon Simulator 2013
Agricultural Simulator 2013 (in spite of not learning my lesson with Farming Simulator 2013!)
DTS: A-10C Warthog
Train Simulator 2013 (route and engine DLC)

I think the indies might be too new to see much of a discount, but I'm crossing my fingers for the wacky sim stuff.

Also have my eye on some mid-tier RPGs like Mars: War Logs and Shadowrun Returns.

I'm hoping to pick up Little Inferno and Thomas Was Alone to add to my pile make up for missing out on the last Humble Bundle.

Check your PMs.

Dishonored
Company of Heroes 2 (unlikely)
Blood Dragon
Thunder Wolves

I'd be surprised if any of the early access titles were discounted during the sale.

Only stuff in my wishlist is the pre-order/CE bonuses for Borderlands 2. Not expecting them to go on sale (Gearbox has been real stingy on dropping the price of DLC for BL2 whenever its on sale), but you never know. Might grab the cosmetic packs too if the price is right (66%+ discount).

Ok, added money in my steam wallet so I can do my best to gift away

To be fair, it's Brink.

While this is true, surely even if it gives someone 3 minutes of entertainment, it's still better than rotting away doing nothing...

Not a great change, but maybe someone would be more interested in Doom 3 BFG Edition. Steam key, of course.

Edit: On that note, Brink is gone.

Doom 3 is also gone!

Now, scraping the barrel slightly, but I also have a key for Rogue Warrior, if someone feels like increasing their game count, let me know!

Kerbal was discounted last week so there is still hope.

This sounds like a good point to raise about Early Access games which made me think. But Kerbal Space Program was just on sale as an Early Access game. So while it might be a case by case, I don't think just because it's Early Access, that doesn't mean that the game is immune to sales.

Edit: Silly me for elaborating and taking my time posting :p Beat to the punch by TempestBlayze

Oh, thank God I'm not doing the thread this year.

This will be my first real Steam sale, since I now have pc capable of playing some decent stuff. It's all so exciting!

I'm only really hoping for a good deal on the Metro games; any discount will do. That said, I'm sure that I will find stuff that I have never heard of or considered before too.

I'm going to be sending out friend requests later. I'm podleian on Steam.

Oh, I forgot about that. Interesting.

Added ya up to the friends list. And if no one has warned you yet, the first Steam Sale that you go into with the funds is always the best. Get ready to be chasing that high from here on out :p

also added a few bucks to the wallet. not sure why, i'll blow through that fast enough then on to the CC.

sigh.

Farcry 3 is the big one on my watchlist, as well as a few others I'm interested in.

Since this thread is pretty active, I'd love to add some Friends. I've only got 5 total, atm.

I'm DJ Dostoevsky if anyone wants to send a request.

I am happy to be one already! (just checked to make sure I had you in my list)

All the GWFL games as well as the Space Quest collection!

Did I get you Bulletstorm PC already? If not, I'll keep an eye out for it.

This looks like so much goofiness and fun.

That's one of my favorite games to play whenever one of the big Steam sales is happening. Throw out the friend requests and snoop over peoples profile and contemplate which game to gift them and ADD TO THAT PILE BABY!

Currently struggling against a complete freakout over the half-person in the background there.

Yeah, what the hell is that? There's a hand, but it looks turned the wrong way.

Wait, was this picture taken in Silent Hill?

I thought that was the dogs high-fiving but with fake horses' hooves because you can't buy fake dog paws!

[edit] The scary thing is that her hands come from her knees!

My guess is a person between two dogs who was chopped down to a pair of shoulders with a slim bit of torso between them.

Dammit! Steam sale better wait till i get my pc this weekend. Steam app hates my Droid.

With a new slate of week long deals that don't end until next Monday probably won't happen until next week.

I''ll likely play this sale fast and loose. Maybe a laughable summer sci-fi blockbuster theme? If Bulletstorm or Binary Domain goes below $5 I will likely gift out about one hundre copies, each with a different French robot quote attached.
