Third day of the Steam Summer sale (Saturday, July 14, 2012), and finally some games go on sale that I have been watching – Dead Island, Skyrim and Left 4 Dead 2 is the community puck for 75% off.
A few weeks ago I created a steam account for the grandkids – it sure beats buying console games at full price. The steam sales are when I stockup on the games. Why pay full price, when you can wait a few months and get the games on sale?
Even though Steam has a great sale every 6 months or so, I still buy new games when they come out. I preordered Left 4 Dead 2, and I am going to preorder Borderlands when it becomes available on Steam.
The games on sale on Friday July 14, 2012:
Indie bundle III – $9.99
Dirt Showdown $24.99
Tropico 4 – $7.49
Two worlds – $7.49
Orcs must die – $3.74
Borderlands – $4.99
Frozen Synapse – 44.99
Dead island – $10.19
Payday the Heist – On Saturday July 13 Payday the Heist was on sale, so I bought the four pack for $15. I already have Payday, the extra copies will be gifted out to my kids.
Dead Island – I want to buy the 4 pack of dead island to gift out to my kids, and Left 4 Dead 2 to gift to the guest account.
Left 4 dead 2 – goes on community choice sale of 75% off in a couple of hours. I want to gift a copy of Left 4 Dead 2 to the guest account.
For the guest account, I want a mix of multiplayer games, and a couple of single player games. It would be nice for the kids or grandkids and I to play games over the LAN.
