Have you been enjoying your veal and truffles? Is your family comfortably decked out in diamonds and furs? Sell it. Sell it all. Sell your family, if you must. This is good advice at any time of year, but especially when the Steam Summer Sale is impending.
Yeah, it’s that time again.
Gaffer Tizoc posted an image on NeoGAF that leaked the date of this year’s Steam Summer Sale. It’ll be abusing your wallet between the 19th and 30th of June, so little over a week away.
I do wonder, though, if these Steam sales have diminishing returns. When they were new, they were exciting, but completely ridiculous sales have become increasingly common to the point where there’s always a huge sale going on. GMG, GOG, GamersGate, Humble Bundles… is there a time when there isn’t a slew of - quite often fairly new - games going for next to nothing?
Of course, I say that now, but come next week I’m probably going to be buying games like they are going out of style.
