The Steam Summer Sale - Prepare Your Wallets

Written by rtgamer on Fri, Jul 12, 2013 11:06 AM

As predicted earlier, and on the off chance you didn't know; the Steam Summer Getaway Sale is now on.

On top of the usual ludicrous sales, Valve are also adding to the usual Badge mechanic with their Summer Getaway cards, encouraging you to be as active as possible to get the set...

Although some games will be on sale for the entire length of the event (until the 22nd), many games will be on Flash deals which cycle every 8 hours, or Daily deals, which cycle, well, daily. Don't forget to add a game to your wishlist to recieve an email when the game goes on sale!

For those eager to get the Summer Sale Badge, you'll need to buy, trade, or otherwise get all the cards. If you want to collect them yourselves, vote in the Community Choice section or purchase $10 of games - which one you get though is random, so don't be afraid to trade!

Are there lots of games you guys want from this sale, or do you have them all already? Do you think you'll manage to get all the cards and complete your badge? Tell us below!

well, if you haven't played the previous cod games, then go for it
but if you have (which im guessing) then its just gonna be more of the same and not really worth $30 in my opinion, but it really depends on your opinion on fast paced FPS's

you made the right choice since bf3 is a far better game, but like i told you, if you've played cod before then trust me, you're not gonna be missing out on much since its just more of the same, if you're new and you really wanna check it out, then what the hell, spend the money and be happy right? cuz thats what money is for lol

I honestly have no idea what these cards are meant to do (if they actually do anything) can some one explain it to me if my stupidity doesn't offend you too much.
Cheers and much love,
Terry Tibbs
P.S. Merry Steam Summer Sale one and all.

With my aging machine, I can't buy too many games during this sale. I did buy Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger since the demo ran well on my settings. I also am waiting for a lower price on Monaco.
