Steam Summer Sales Are Here!

Normally I wouldn't make a big news story over the Steam sales but summer sales are here!  Lots of stuff on sale in general and daily deals.  If this is your first big Steam sale, don't buy the non daily deals until the last day.  You may regret it if the game you want ends up as a daily deal a day or two after you buy it.  However one of today's daily deals is a good one: Medal Of Honor for $10.19 and it includes an invite to the Battlefield 3 beta.  Hard to pass that up.

If you have any recommendations for a game that is on daily deal (or other wise on sale) lets here them!

I'm going to recommend today's deals of Oblivion GOTY Edition for $6.80 and Borderlands GOTY Edition for $7.50.

I'll be keeping my eye on the Dawn of War franchise through the sale and the Unreal Deal Pack as well.  DOW 2: Retribution is a daily deal today but I was not impressed by the Dawn of War 2 games, the original was fantastic though.

If you want Borderlands grab it now, it's the daily deal and will go up in price in about 18 hours.

I decided to take the plunge and purchases The Witcher 2, and its predecessor, since the games are both 33% off today. Pretty generous for a game that was pretty recently released, in the case of the sequel. All in all, the cost of buying both games came out less than your average new A-list title (which is around $60).
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

Great, what is the use of a summer sale if I can't even look at what's avalable without the page breaking. Damn servers are buckling under.

Hello $450 paycheck...

Good bye $450 paycheck.

Leave you nothing left to hold
When you're nothing it's a good time to remind you of one thing
The pursuit begins when this portrayal of life, ends

Some of the featured packs have loads of value though. There's one where just two games in it are almost enough to cover the pack's price. Add a couple dollars more and a boatload of games comes along with them.

The Valve pack is especially guilty of this.  Portal 2 -just- came out and it almost covers the price of the Valve pack and is included...

Dang. I already own everything in there.   x|

Bought two very alluring packs based on price. One contains a bunch of strategy games I was intending to buy.

...

Well gently-carress. I'll really need to start categorizing this excrement.

Seriously though, you can buy them through any web browser... you don't need to be at your PC with steam on it to buy the stuff...

He might not want to login with his steam account in a public computer though.

He only needs either 3G or WiFi access and he's in business.

Sales day 2 has arrived!

Only thing I can recommend is GTA Classics for $7.49 but I am looking at Just Cause 2 for $4.99 as a possibility for me to snag.  Maybe Braid also.  I heard good things about it.

I'd say meh.

I already own Just Cause 2 and Shogun 2. Also, I was never that much interested in GTA.

I have a list of games I'm interested in buying if they end up in the daily deals. None showed up so far.

A word of warning though: Some mega packs are changing prices. The Square Enix/Eidos Interactive one just lost %4 of its discount rate. Yesterday it was selling with a discount of 92% at $50. Today it is going for $74,99 at an 88% discount rate.

Woah.  WTF.  That's odd.

Also: I missed it earlier but KOTOR is $2.49.  Anyone who doesn't have it should.
