E4G: Valve has sent out quite the e-mail to Video Game journalists today.
" If you are reading this - congratulations! You have survived farther into summer than most and have taken to heart our cautionary tales about the dangers of summer activities." Lol?
Wow they really went all out for that sale eh?
Yes they did!
This is what I got up until now, keeping it cheap since I am keeping my cash for a trip to New York Next week. Tropico 2 7,50$ Beat hazard and dlc 3.50$ Star Wars empire at war gold 5$ I am pissed I missed so many during the week since I was moving and only got online last night. give us more Valve!
And I still can't believe I passed up the Bioshock (first) sale when it was 5$. This was before the summer sale. I don't have time to play what I already have though.
Dont worry you havent missed too much man, dont get me wrong but i think the sales have just been getting better each day. Maybe because ive already played some of them. Valve curse you, im trying to save money :) This is why i love steam.
so far grabbed The Witcher $7 Overlord pack $4 Left 4 Dead 2 $10 Street Fighter 4 $10 Tropico 3 $7 I'm so glad I got most of these deals during the holidays (THQ Pack, Unreal Pack)
Listen, I'm Canadian myself, and although I'm not a big fan of the stereotype that we all say "eh" (which we don't), I'm just too curious not to ask... Are you Canadian? Or did I actually just catch an American saying "eh"? I'd hate myself if I didn't ask...
I've spent around 80 bucks so far and gotten dozens of games. Steam= AWESOME. So far I've bought the THQ Pack, Tropico 3, Star War Empire at War, Madballs, and GTA SA. Great deals. Boderlands for 10 bucks. I'd buy it but I already have the 360 version.
That's not Valve. GLaDOS (from Portal) hacked Valve's email server (if Germans can do it, she can) and sent out her spam.
Got most of my stuff, gotta love this deal
Got some Need for Speed :D
Valve is just...awesome.
Exactly! They provide the awesome sauce.
Since I'm surviving summer, how about some more DLC for the Left 4 Dead series!!
... I still don't have a clue on why their company's logo is a pic of a steam valve at the back of a baldy guy's head.. even after 2 years of seeing the very same image at least 30 times upon starting CS:S xD You've got to give it to 'em.. It's very unique for one thing.. Never seen anything like it
To developers who released their game in the summer lol
My bank is withholding funds from my debit card I've spent so much... so yes, I'm just barely surviving...
I survived the outdoors but I didn't survive Steam. They got me with: Resident Evil 5 Borderlands + all DLC Civ 4 Collection The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom Madballs Clive Barker's Jericho Flatout: Ultimate Carnage Silent Hill Homecoming Titan Quest Gold The Void Shatter Plus more to come in the next 3 days.
surviving summer, and in return, Valve gimme HL2: ep3 or HL3 :P
I've survived the Steam sales so far....only spent 2.50 on Shatter (fun game btw). Every time I get close to buying something, I remember how many games I already have and especially when it's a shooter (like Red Faction: Guerrilla or Borderlands like today). I've got 7 shooters I can play so at least reason is winning over in my brain
Spent $2 on EVE online, thats the only purchase I made :)
I missed out on L4D2 and Tropico so far :( I'm attempting to get saints row 2 today tho. I also got Garrys mod.
So far I've bought: Mass Effect 2 L4D2 x 2 (one for my son) Torchlight Borderlands Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising My wife can't wait till the 4th to come and pass....oh another awesome thing I got this week, but not from Steam, was Office 2010 Professional ($499 value) for $9.95....military discount :) Been one hell of a week!
