My Steam ID in case you have any suggestions/questions.

DAILY DEAL = FLASH DEAL = COMMUNITY DEAL It won't get cheaper if the slot the deal sits in changes, stop asking about that.

Join our #steamgoons IRC channel!

A wonderful gif by Captain Swing based on my thread original poster:

Welcome to the Steam Summer Sale 2013 Thread. Pro-click:

Every year Steam has two sales that actually matter and Summer Sale is one of them. Buy dirt cheap games now and buy them hard as the next occasion may not present itself too soon.
At the same time wait for the game to become a daily deal. If it never becomes a daily deal you can still buy it on the last day being sure it has not in fact become a daily deal.

Let me repeat that one more time. As a wise man once said:

A wise man posted:

Wait for the game to become a daily deal!
Yep and now you do that. Oh and by the way:

Summer Sale starts July 11th and ends July 21st

All the different deals:
  • Daily Deals - The standard way of Steam to offer amazing deals during these sales. You have 24 hours to get a game, then another 24 hours after the deals change. Makes it much easier to make up your mind where to spend your hard earned cash.
  • Flash Sales - The new way of getting your money - each game only gets a couple of hours of being on sale, and it might or might not show up multiple times during the entire sale.
  • “Community Choice” Deals - A new vote starts every 12 hours where you choose 1 of 3 proposed games and the most voted one will become a deal.
  • Deals swap over at 10am Pacific Time. Also more often than not, you should see an "Offer ends in" timer to give you an idea of how much time you have to get the game. For the sale, they're giving is two day (48 hour) timers.
  • There should be an encore weekend at the end of the sale. The most popular deals from each day get the last chance to be bought. This was true for the X-mas sale.
  • We're living in a brave new world - check Amazon, GMG, Gamersgate for Steam games in your cart. Those shops often have a lower price point in competition with Steam. Go to Cheapshark for info.

This year's METAGAME will most likely have something has everything to do with Mystery Cards.
"But what the gently caress ARE Steam Trading Cards?" Shut up and read:

Mystery Cards have been revealed. All cards updated to specific graphic representing games ( THAT WILL GO ON SALE ):


There are tiny icons hidden in the postcards referring to icons on the larger map in the client's background:

Holy poo poo Steam background changes a bit every day and you didn't even notice!

The tiny plane moves around the map to different icons representing the leading daily deals and you can kinda predict where it's heading the next day.

There are also hidden codes in the postcards that are small pieces of trivia (they all start with SS13 for "Summer Sale 2013"):

  • Bioshock Infinite SS13-P75007 Postal code of the Eiffel Tower
  • Chivalry: Medieval Warfare SS13-P1016 Release date: 10/16/2012
  • Dead Island Riptide SS13-P869 Papua New Guinea where the game's fictional island is located has 869 different languages (this might not be it but no other guesses)
  • Football Manager 2013 SS13-P196 "The Football League releases fixtures on 19th June" (actually nobody knows if this is it but maybe?)
  • Kerbal Space Program SS13-P299792458 Speed of light in a vacuum
  • Prison Architect SS13-P81579 Birthdate of dev: 8/15/79
  • Reus SS13-P420 420
  • Skyrim SS13-P11112011 Release date: 11/11/2011
  • Tomb Raider SS13-P121181 31815620 (Alphabet) Spells out LARA CROFT
  • Torchlight II SS13-P1027 Release date: 10/27/2009

When you complete a card set (normal or foil) you can craft a badge in your Profile>Badges menu:

When you craft a badge you get: 1.Steam Summer Sale Badge 2. Steam XP 3.Profile background 4.Steam chat smilie 5.A card for another badge 6.A chance for a special postcard

You can craft the badge several times for higher levels. The results of crafting will be the same but with more Steam XP each time.

How to get more Summer Sale Cards? You can either get one from crafting a badge for a game. You can buy one on the market. You get a chance for a card by voting on Flash Deals. You will also get one for every $10 you spend during sale:

  • If the game you want isn't a daily/flash deal - wait for it to become one or buy it on the last day. "Aw hell I just bought Skyrim for $30 and now it's a daily for $10 " is something we read in the sale threads on every single page.
  • Put the amount of money you can afford AND NO MORE* into your steam wallet. You don't want your card being knocked back when you try and buy that Nancy Drew game you've been waiting for with 5 minutes on the sale clock.
    *Unless you are from and area that gets screwed by regional pricing a lot (eg. Australia). Put that sweet cash in your paypal, and you'll be sending off cash to one of our many regional gifters in no time, with no fuss!
  • Consider buying games as gifts into your inventory and only open them when you intend to play them. When you finally wake up from the shopping spree you'll wonder why the hell you bought all those games but if they're gifts you'll be able to trade/sell them. Believe me we have all been there.
  • If the game is on a daily deal, chances are it won't get and cheaper. So snap that up.
  • Organize 2 or 4 packs where possible. It can often save you and your fellow goons a good sum of cash.
  • There are usually tons of games discounted 75%+ that aren't mentioned on the main page. Go hunting.

  • Did you know we have an official Steam Goons IRC channel? If you want to talk about games, deals, find gifters, give out games or just chill out - come on over. We're active throughout the year. Just don't be a dickhead and don't beg for games.
  • Use Cheap Shark to find good deals and Steam Prices to find out where it's cheapest!
  • Do you want to augment your Steam? Install Enhanced Steam: for Chrome, for Mozilla.:

    Owned games will be marked green, wishlisted games will be blue:

    You'll get a fancy table on the game pages showing you when the game was at its lowest on Steam and other places:

    If you want to see regional prices as a handy table on the right install Steam Regional Price Checker:

    (Although it's not turned on by default, if you go into the options of the 'All region price checker' you can select a default currency, and it will then display all regions in that currency)

  • If you're looking for the main Steam thread, it's here. If you want to trade games, go here. If you want to trade Steam Cards, go here. If you're feeling generous and want to give away games, go here.
  • "This might be a stupid question, but how do you get to the regular store screen?" You can't. Big sales traditionally take over regular Steam until they're over.

:siren: List of Goon Gifters from different regions: :siren:

If you're going to be contacting one of the gifters in this section, it's probably a good idea to at least be in the SA Goons group, so we know you're not just a random pubbie trying to do a lovely trade. If you want to join the group, go post in this thread. Don't request an invite here!
If those guys helped you a ton, why not tip them with game gifts once in a while when a sale rolls in? Take from the community and give back and all.

Gabe, bring back :coal:

:siren: I actually quickly modeled a 3D Steam Gift that Gabe holds in the thread graphic. :siren:

If for some reason that I can't understand you would ever find a use for a 3D Steam Gift then here you can download a Google Sketchup file:



Dec 27, 2008

Do you feel it, Zach?
My coffee warned me about it.

Use this link to just browse Steam games for hidden gems.

Our very own Axemaniac has a Steam Shots youtube channel with short but sweet reviews of every new Steam release.

If you're not sure about a game there's a huge chance he can give you just enough of an impression to help you make up your mind. Here's an example:

Last time there was a big indie sale going on I made a write-up on good indie games under 5€. Here it is:
  • AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome - A sequel to the previous game with many As in the title. It's an arcady basejumping game where you need to fall through target areas while flipping off cheering fans.

  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent - The scariest game on Steam. Also owns (I never finished it because it was too much)

  • A New Beginning - Final Cut - A solid point'n'click adventure giving me some Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars flashbacks due to similar graphical style.

  • Anomaly: Warzone Earth - One of the best looking tower defense games that's also a reverse one - you control the attackers instead of the towers and have to get through to the enemy base. A Very Polish-ed title (it's a Polish game heh).

  • Analogue: A Hate Story - An anime visual novel...are you still with me? Good, because this is one of the few actually good ones, it carries a solid plot and uses a few original game mechanics. If you can accept the visual style then you will enjoy this.

  • Big Brain Wolf - This is for people who enjoyed Puzzle Agent for its puzzles. The Twin Peaks setting is swapped for "The player takes upon the role of an asthmatic vegetarian wolf studying to become a genie." so be aware of that. The game offers some solid Professor Layton puzzling.

  • BIT.TRIP VOID - BIT.TRIP series is always recommended. Good music and trippy visuals guaranteed. This time you control a black hole that gets bigger when you catch black particles and smaller when you catch white ones - the goal is to get as big as possible. It's a reflex puzzle game.

  • BIT.TRIP CORE - A good game that uses rythm and music in combination with reflex gameplay. This game is quite hard though.

  • BIT.TRIP RUNNER - The most popular game from the older batch. It's a runner which means you only control a few actions while the dude runs by himself. It gets pretty deep and hard later on though.

  • BIT.TRIP BEAT - Oh hey ANOTHER BIT.TRIP game huh? It's a love letter to Pong combined with rhythm and music. I enjoyed this one the most from the series.

  • Bob Came in Pieces - Another overlooked little title. A 2D puzzle platformer where you control a spaceship that allows you to attaching various kinds of engines to it that completely change the way it moves. It's pretty clever. The controls can get clunky sometimes but if you played one of those lunar landing games in the past - it's something like that.

  • Botanicula - An AMAZING adventure title from the creators of Machinarium. It's actually their best game. It's cute, funny and has an excellent graphical style.

  • Cargo! The Quest for Gravity - A strange game from Ice-pick Lodge - guys who developped Pathologic. You build driving/swimming/flying contraptions from various parts to solve given tasks. The art direction is bonkers and the gameplay is a bit clunky - you need to have a taste for bizarre Eastern-European titles.

  • Cave Story+ - One of the best metroidvania games on Steam. Combines RPG elements with an interesting story and cute graphics. One of the indie classics at this point.

  • Closure - A stylish platformer where only lit objects exist while objects in the darkness don't. This leads to all sorts of puzzling shenanigans using lamps, reflectors and mirrors. A really polished and fun game.

  • Dear Esther - Avoid if you don't like conceptual games with slow paced gameplay. You'll explore a gorgeously presented island flooded with fog, darkness, misery and sadness. This is for people who find enjoyment in contemplating visuals and taking in an atmosphere of mystery. It's worth playing to see how much can be done with Source Engine and for masterful level design.

  • Dungeons of Dredmor Complete - This is a roguelike for people who normally can't stand roguelikes. Very accessible, polished and absolutely hilarious. This might be the funniest game on Steam, also one of the best.

  • Dustforce - Super Meat Boy with brooms. It's really good but gets hard.

  • English Country Tune - A-ball-in-a-3d-cube-world kind of puzzle game and one of the best in the genre. Seems pretty harmless but it will suck you in for hours.

  • E.Y.E - The best/worst game on Steam. A pretty deep FPS RPG where Warhammer 40k somehow meets Bladerunner and the ATM machine that you're trying to hack is able to hack you back. Don't go near if you don't like to stick your dick in crazy.

  • Eversion - A cute 2d platformer in the style of Mario except it's not cute. It's not cute at all. It's loving terrifying and you should get it.

  • Fortix 2 - A new incarnation of the classic Qix - the border of the screen is safe and you have to cut into the middle avoiding various enemies. It gets a bit harder later in the game and starts adding some unnecessary elements but for this price it's a good game.

  • Fly'N - The cutest platformer next to Rayman: Origins. The visuals are stunning and it's just a blast to play. I know people heard it's good but it really deserves a place among the best in the genre.

  • FTL: Faster Than Light - I will tell you that Hotline Miami is the best indie game of 2012 - well, I bet some people will send me death threats because I should have chosen FTL for that spot. A space strategy game where you willingly burn half of your own ship during a hostile alien takeover only to realize that your last surviving crew member is slowly suffocating while the oxygen controls are in a decompressed room. Fun times.

  • Gateways - What if somebody made a 2d Portal game and then decided it's not mindfucking enough so the portals can now change your size, gravity and take you back in time? And if that somebody also placed it on one huge metroidvania-style map? That game would be called Gateways.

  • Half Minute Hero - An interesting game which mixes styles of various classic games and combines them into a single adventure of saving the world all in 30 seconds. It's crazy and simply a blast to play.

  • Hard Reset Extended Edition - An old-school FPS game with tons of enemies sent in your general direction and no reload button. Also environmental explosions galore. Everything explodes. Gun upgrades are ~awesome~. Surprisingly high production values for a small studio - the devs upgraded the game to Extended Edition for free which added a whole act to the story.

  • Hotline Miami - The best indie game of 2012 with the best soundtrack of 2012. Frantic, bloody and making your hands shake in real life. Tarantino dialogues with a story set in the 80's.

  • Intrusion 2 - A crazy cool action side-scroller with physics, explosions, robot panthers and explosions.

  • Jamestown - A bullethell game for players that aren't hardcore. A very nice graphical style and takes place on 17th century Mars, yeah.

  • Limbo - An excellent, stylish 2D platformer. If you ever wondered how your nightmares would look like in a 2D gaming form then this is it.

  • Lone Survivor - 2D Silent Hill. One of the best horror games on Steam.

  • Lunar Flight - A lunar module simulation that is simply extremely fun to play. The monochrome visuals add to the experience of being far away from Earth.

  • Luxor Evolved - First you have to undestand that this is a casual game. It's basically Zuma where you shoot colored balls at matching balls from a row of incoming...balls. But this version has nice vector graphics and a rhythm that makes it way more frantic.

  • Machinarium - One of the best adventure games in recent years. Graphic style is simply incredible and the devs invented a pretty revolutionary hint system in the form of custom comic books which you can only see after beating a simple arcade minigame - it's enough to make you not overuse it. The game does get harder towards the end.

  • Miner Wars 2081 - The next gen Descent. First person view of flying an armed spaceship through tight underground corridors - it's good.

  • Nimbus - An overlooked little 2D platformer where you control a ship free falling through checkpoints that give it a little boost enough to free fall to the next checkpoint. It's actually well done.

  • Noitu Love 2: Devolution - An amazing action platformer that manages to pull off amazing mid-air combat.

  • Offspring Fling - A very solid 2D platformer with cool graphics that mixes gameplay from many different games. Super Meat Boy meets puzzles.

  • PixelJunk Eden - A beautiful 2D platformer/exploration title with some experimental gameplay. It's mesmerizing and very polished.

  • Primal Carnage - One of the best current asymmetric multiplayer FPSes. Have you ever wanted to control an rear end in a top hat Velociraptor? Have you ever wanted to be a soldier killed repeatedly by an rear end in a top hat Velociraptor? This is a game for you then. Also the community is quite alive.

  • Puzzle Dimension - One of the best ball-in-a-cube-world puzzle games. It has really nice graphics and the levels are very enjoyable. Like every game from this genre gets really hard later on.

  • Retro City Rampage - GTA for the NES. That's literally what it is. Except it's also funny and full of references to other games. It does lose its novelty after a while and you might drop it before finishing.

  • Rock of Ages - A mix of tower defense, Monkey Ball and god knows what else. Art style taken straight from Monty Python's animations. It's hilarious and very original.

  • Shad'O - Tower defense that actually carries an interesting plot, looks gorgeous and brings quite a few new twists to the table.

  • Super Meat Boy - A classic at this point. It's a game I spent days playing and I don't even like platformers that much. The winning formula is simple: short deadly levels BUT at the same time instantanious respawn after death. So it doesn't make you frustrated...that much. Very tight controls.

  • Stealth Bastard Deluxe - This is a really great stealth 2d platformer but it's very fast paced for the genre. If you're used to jumping from cover to cover and waiting minutes for the perfect window between enemy patrols - you won't find this here. You need reflexes here but it makes the game extremely fun.

  • Super Hexagon - Epilepsy the game. But it's the good epilepsy! This simple reflex game can make you tense and grit your teeth. You will ragequit this game - and then you will come back to it because it's really cool.

  • Terraria - 2D sidescrolling Minecraft. The game does its own thing though - it's more combat and survival driven and you will go much deeper into the ground.

  • The Basement Collection - You loved Super Meatboy and The Binding of Isaac? Here are 7 games from Edmund McMillen that were developed before his famous works. A surprisingly high amount of content in this package.

  • The Binding of Isaac - From the guy who made Super Meat Boy. It's a randomized roguelike arena shooter with a very unnerving art style. Best gameplay time/$ investment on Steam. I have friends that put hundreds of hours into this game. If you get it be sure to grab the solid DLC for it (or not, people tell me DLC makes this game way hard).

  • The Blackwell Bundle - A series of 4 old-school point'n'click adventure games. Well worth playing if you're a fan of the genre.

  • The Journey Down: Chapter One - A really cool old-school adventure game, nice music and visuals combined with very original character design.

  • Ticket to Ride - Digital version of the extremely popular boardgame. Fun to play alone or in multiplayer. The DLC with new boards are also good and actually the cheapest way of playing the game as you'd have to pay quite a lot for the physical versions of those.

  • Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers - a third person platformer with amazing graphical style (hand-crafted comic book textures) and a cool gameplay gimmick where you can slice everything on the map with a laser in any chosen angle. Tons of secrets on every level.

  • To The Moon - A game that makes grown manchildren cry. It's beautiful.

  • Trine 2 - One of the most gorgeous games on Steam. It's just mindblowing how good this game looks. The gameplay consists of controlling 3 different characters between which you can switch on the fly while you solve physics based puzzles and kill skeletons. It's worth mentioning that the excellent DLC is also worth picking up.

  • Two Tribes Pack - EDGE, RUSH and Toki Tori in one fancy package. A bunch of very solid and good looking (EDGE, RUSH, Toki Tori not so much) puzzle games.

  • Universe Sandbox - I still think the freeware Space Engine is the best universe-themed title ever created by man but it's not on Steam so you'll have to do with Universe Sandbox. It doesn't really convey the scale of the universe and is more like controlling toys painted in planet colors - but it's fun for what it offers. Beware though - it's pretty sandboxy so if you need games with actual gameplay and direction you will drop this fast.

  • Waking Mars - One of the most original platformers of recent months. Gameplay allows you to actually grow things instead of killing them and use the Martian life cycle as your tool. Space gardener - the game.

  • Zen Bound 2 - This is the most relaxing title on Steam and offers some simple but gorgeous graphics. The premise is simple - an end of a rope is attached to a sculpture and you control the sculpture's 3D rotation in order to fully cover it with rope. Sounds simple but gets gradually harder with stranger shapes you unlock.

  • Zeno Clash - A weird melee FPS with trippy world deign. Punch and kick opponents to death. It's very satisfying and worth grabbing. The sequel has been recently released and seems even better.

This whole thread has been raging at the people who don't want Saracen invasion to their homes

Perhaps you too should be more accepting of their cultures

I'm so hyped. It's gonna be like winter sales where I'm superhyped about everything and then buy nothing because I own everything already please help.

The past couple of months of card baroning, praise be to Gaben for his many blessings, have left me armed with a fat wallet for the sale. Gaben is love. Steam is His mighty Church.

Incase it hasn't been drilled into your head from previous sales yet:

EDIT: Oh it was already added to the OP.

If I die before I Wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.

I have been both anticipating and dreading this day since the Winter Sale ended. Bring on the deals.

Can't wait for Amazon, GMG, GamersGate, and Steam, etc. to all fight for my monies!!

The thing that really gets my goat(se) is that there are a lot of good games either coming or new that I'd like to see sales on, but definitely won't reach 75% off. Like Payday 2, the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, Shadowrun Returns, Deadpool, and Saints Row IV.

are you mother fuckers ready for a miracle

I've owned Steam for a couple of years, but it's only been in the past 3-4 months that I've started playing PC games more than my console. I remember the winter sale from this past year, but it was more of a "check every once in a while" rather than a daily habit of following sales.

This year I've been eagerly anticipating the summer sale (like we all are) and over the past couple weeks I've been adding items to my wishlist. During the Steam sale, how are you alerted when a game from your wishlist is on sale?

I wanted this to happen!!

Soiled Meat

I'm ready, but I can't imagine this will be as big for me as say a year ago. I already have so many games. I honestly think I might have everything I really want.

I'm sure I'll end up seeing a deal I can't pass up though. But I'm going to try and keep it under control this year.

You should receive an e-mail, but every one I got was hours after the sale went live and sometimes I got no e-mail at all.

Lambert is my Homeboy

I am so disturbed now. I may have nightmares.

Also did they photoshop him to make him MORE obese looking or is it just like, the effect of the pillow's natural shape?

Yeah like Hogo Fogo said above, it's spotty at best. I'd check as often as possible and even on your cellphone's Steam App/SA App.

Boy, I think it's about time I tell you the difference between a man and a woman. A woman isn't a woman unless she's pretty. And a man isn't a man unless he's ugly.

You should feel ashamed of yourself for not including Little Inferno as a must buy game.

Dec 6, 2012

Engulf yourself in gaben's pillowy mass

Can't wait to pick up Don't starve, Rogue Legacy, Unepic; those are my top three right now. Also hoping BL2 season pass goes on for the cheap, but this is gearbox we're talking about so...

May 16, 2009

Anyone think grabbing up some $1 mystery cards is a good investment?

Nov 10, 2007


I want this so bad.

May 20, 2004

Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way or another.

Awwww yeah, got my budgeted money put aside in my steam wallet, ready to add to my growing backlog and despair over ever finding the time to play through all these ridiculously cheap games. Life is good.

LordNat posted:

No. Nope. Nada.

I'm fully prepared to be proven wrong but there is no way in hell I'm paying money for some mystery cards on the off-chance it will be something more than just a unique badge, and I'd be pretty pissed off if whatever Valve's gimmick for this sale might be involves having to pay cash to get at it.

Dec 27, 2008

Do you feel it, Zach?
My coffee warned me about it.

The list contains recommendations for games that cost under $5 during the recent indie game sale. Little Inferno might not have had a deal good enough then. If anybody wants to start creating a list for titles under $10 feel free to do so and I'll add it to the recommendations post.

Okay, thanks for the help (and Hogo Fogo). I'll just make sure to keep an eye out for those games.

Never deal with a dragon? Psh. Pansies.

Probably not but I grabbed a set anyway.

Jun 6, 2011

You don't want my life. What do I have to show for it? Metal plate in my chest, Vatican karate gorilla blood on my hands, and a foot locker full of manbro viles.

Are you read for a miracle goons?

I sure am.

I am the real hero here.

I love how one of the most terrible games to gift is Bioshock Infinite. That would be quite the surprise!

Aug 25, 2010

You know for the first time during one of these I'm drawing blanks for anything I'm like, REALLY REALLY interested in.

This is an empty, sad feeling.

Thanks for the recommendations, Palpek. Lots of stuff I missed/never knew about in the first place.
