How can you not know this already?
Every year for the past decade or so Steam has a huge summer sale on/following the summer solstice.

Who said I didn’t know this already? I try to put it out of my head but it’s difficult for me because it starts on a day more important than the solstice, wiseguy.

Okay, calm down Gussy, no need to get fussy.

So is the 21st your B-Day or Anniversary?

I think that's the date Gus lost his virginity or something.

I've had a few games loitering with intent on my wishlist since about last summer; I might have to see if the sale can compel me to pick any up.  I dunno...I'm pretty game saturated right now.  At this rate, I'm likely going to die with half my Steam library never having seen a hard drive, let alone played, let alone played to any sort of completion.

First world problems.

Probably can't resist the XCOM 2 DLC stuff, esp. War of the Chosen -- have been playing a ton of XCOM 2 of late and have gotten pretty hooked. It turns out to be a great game to move on to when you're kind of burned out on Battletech.

So I nabbed the Company of Heroes 2 Master Collection (mainly so I could get my hands on Ardennes Assault, but was interested in a few bits of the other DLC and this seemed liked a good deal), War of the Zombie (wasn't discounted at all - if it's not going to be discounted now, it probably never will), SuperPower 2 (third time I've bought that game - help me), the Kerbal Space Program expansion and StickFight: The Game.

Was almost tempted by Graviteam stuff, and Ultimate General Civil War, but can't quite bring myself to take the plunge.

Thus far, I've bought the Brigador: Up-Armored Deluxe edition (with audiobook and soundtrack) for, converting euro's to dollars, about 19.50. It was on sale in the first half of the week as well, but I waited to see if the discount would improve for the summer sale (which would've been unfortunate for those who bought it on, say, Monday).

I don't know what else, if anything, I'll buy.

I've bought 8 games thus far in the first half of the year, not more than I can play. That's actually more than usual, or maybe it's just my impression that I buy less fewer than before.

In most cases, I don't buy stuff I will not actually play unless it's bundled with something I do want to play (for example: an inferior sequel packaged with a good original game).

Yeah. I really dug the change of scenery for the new locations.

Quote
The expansion follows the Team Sabre Squadron as they are deployed to take out targets and carry out mission objectives in two separate single player campaigns (*approximately 5 missions each) that take place in Columbia and Iran. The multiplayer feature boasts 30 new maps and an enhanced level of mod support for players to build their own unique maps.

The highlight of this expansion pack is that it features lush jungle terrain, never seen before to this extent in a Delta Force game. This also adds an exciting element to gameplay in both the single and multiplayer game.

I'd also highly recommend Delta Force: Task Force Dagger.

Solid missions, based in Afghanistan. It's kind of funny conducting attacks on the Kandahar Airfield, considering I was stationed there several years ago. Same applied to Medal of Honor 2010, when they portrayed SOF teams attacking to seize the Airfield.

DCS AVB8 (for $34!)
Rise of Nations
Blackhawk Down: Team Saber
Medal of Honor: Airborne
Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway

Got my eye on a few others. Can't beat games for $3

I really like Rise of Nations. This is my go to game in this genre.

So I've always gotten a kick out of the "News of the Bizarre" type columns where people do something so crazy or stupid it becomes news. But sometimes situations repeat themselves to the point where they are no longer bizarre. Stupid perhaps, yet commonplace. What does this have to do with the Steam Summer Sale? I'm sorry you asked......

I'm sorry because this is at least the fifth or sixth time I've gone to buy a game on Steam only to discover......I already own it. Today's entry into the bizarre was "Freemen:Guerilla Warfare" which I apparently bought during the Christmas sale and never installed.  :-"  :uglystupid2:  L:-)  Granted, I love grabbing a bargain and darn it, I'm a gamer. Still....it would probably be good for my karmic balance if I actually played the games I bought sometimes. Or even half of the games.

Oh and I'm reinstalling Skyrim. Somehow I suspect this will not end well for my unplayed game balance......

While browsing the sale I took a look at Steam's suggestions for other games I might be interested in. I found the following..................



WORLD WAR II GAMES Due to your recent playtime in other World War II games

Hidden & Dangerous 2: Courage Under Fire
-67% $9.99  $3.29

Putt-Putt® Joins the Parade
-60% $6.99  $2.79



Anybody play Putt-Putt®? I hate to blindly pick something up without somebody's take on it. Gus?  :-"

Is it just my computer, or is the Steam "search the store" feature not working?

Happens to me too on and off. Probably depends on the work load of the servers.

I have been experiencing the same issue; I suspect its just overload as usual with Steam at times like this.

The site has been flukey since the sale started. Which is par for the course during sales.

Same with my daughter. I also have to add Fatty Bear and Reader Rabbit to the list. Gotta start them early.

Just curious, any of those games work with controllers or too old school for that?  I know you can buy software that tries to make it work, but was just curious if any happened to have native support.  The game pack is impressive, but without using a controller, going back to keyboard likely will kill me:)

I'm a bit tempted by 'Darkest Dungeon'

I've played Darkest Dungeon on and off for the past few weeks and have no regrets about getting owning it.  I don't usually tolerate side-scrollers, but what makes this game fun is the campy Lovecraftian tone.  The voice-acting is delightfully overblown, and the game has its tongue planted firmly in its cheek.  Or something like that.

Tank Warfare Tunisia is only 7.99, well worth it IMO.

They did an update this month that generated a ton of negative reviews.  What is up with that?
