Steam Summer Sale 2013 Day 6

Another day where I didn't spend anything on Steam. This is getting weird now. What happened to my conspicuous consumption of digital goods?

I have to say I was very disappointed that there was no discount on the new Crusader Kings II stuff last night.

It is almost as if Valve is teasing me now... that or I am turning into a grumpy old man gamer who owns too many games and thus, I own most of the stuff in the sales now.

I just think I'm disappointed that things I've wanted haven't been daily/flash deals yet.

Today's theme is Football Manager Summer Camp. Yay!

Daily Deals

Football Manager 2013 75% off (9.99) I love Football Manager. I was evangelical about the series for years. If you like soccer/football you should own it. If I didn't have it, I would buy it at this price.

Sleeping Dogs 75% off (6.24) A very good open world sandbox game based in Hong Kong. A lot of DLC, but it is 75% off too.

Rising Storm 50% off (9.99) I am not a fan of Tripwire shooters. But people like them, so if you want a WWII shooter based on the Pacific War, this may appeal to you.

Crysis 2 Maximum Edition 70% off (8.99) Over at Kotaku in the Moneysaver, Shane Roberts mentioned that this was bundled with other Crysis games on Saturday for 12.50... so this may not be the best price now.

Alan Wake 90% off (2.99) Honestly, that is a really good price. It was that in a bundle too of course, but that doesn't detract from the appeal of this price point.

Orcs Must Die 2 75% off (3.74) This is a tower defense/action blend, and it is supposedly really good. That is a good price as well.

The Secret World 50% off (14.99) I've heard there are much better MMOs out there. I remember the PC Gamer review said this was sort of disappointing.

System Shock 2 75% off (2.49) A scary game, even if it is older. I've heard it has held up really well.

Devil May Cry 50% off (24.99) I think you should wait for a lower price.

Mark of the Ninja 75% off (3.74) A stealth platformer, and a fine example of that combination as well. I recommend this.

Flash Deals

Round 1 1PM-9PM

Serious Sam 3 BFE Edition 90% off (3.99) A good old school FPS, but nothing spectacular. But that is a good price.

Amnesia The Dark Descent 80% off (3.99) Another very good horror game. I've seen a lot of people having the piss scared out of them playing this game.

Scribblenauts Unlimited 75% off (4.99) I bought this the other day for this price. Looks like it is going to be fun.

Assassin's Creed III 40% off (23.99) I've read that Amazon has this game at 20 often. I'd wait.

Round 2 9PM-5AM

Aliens Colonial Marines 75% off (12.49) As a symbol of both misleading trailers and bad preordering scams, this is definitely a game to avoid.

F1 2012 75% off (9.99) Heard it is a good simulation game from the same people who did Dirt and Grid.

And then repeats of the Dragon Age Origins and Mars War Logs sales from a few days back.

Round 3 5AM-1PM

Half Life 2 75% off (2.49) I think everyone owns Half Life 2 by now.

Music Creator 6 Touch 66% off (16.99) A Cakewalk program for making multi-track music.

Torchlight 2 75% off (4.99) I really like Torchlight 2, but it is also going to be a deal of the day, so you don't need to grab it at this moment. 

And then a repeat of  the Defiance sale from earlier in the week.

My Steam Summer Sale Running Total: $85.78 - Euro Truck Simulator 2, Scribblenauts Unlimited and RPG Maker VX Ace and the addons, 13 Summer Sale card earned, 2 sold and a Football Manager Summer Sale background bought for 3 cents.
