How do you get them again, by completing badges? I might complete a few badges.

You get one per completed badge in the lead-up to the sale- you also get them during the sale by voting in the daily sales and by handing Newell your money. Or you can trade for them, obvs.

I crafted some badges I nearly had completed and got some freebies. I'm Gaben's slave. Aww!

I hope that they're more like last Summer's cards, IE five regular badges and a foil and they don't expire, than they are the Christmas sale ones, which was a cynical way of making people pay money for the cards.

Also it allows me to stockpile them for long-term market abuse.

They'll probably expire for that very reason.

*sigh* why did you have to let me know, Jay? I've just spent 12 on 3 games (CS:GO, Apotheon, Super TimeForce Ultra).
I love the organisation/immediacy of Steam, but I fall for this every year - apart from a weekly MineCraft session (which is mainly an excuse to do something while I catch up with more remote friends) I play a PC game once every couple of weeks. I'm working my way solely through Bioshock at the moment. I started in late March. I've played 2 hours.

I know the feeling - I'm sitting here with literally hundreds of unplayed games, yet Steam keeps getting my money each sale time. How can you NOT buy the Lego Batman trilogy for 7?

IT BEGINS AGAIN

I'm trying to buy both Lego Harry Potter games for about 6 - except the site demand's high and it keeps getting stuck - now it's stuck MID-PURCHASE. Now's the time to hack my machine, guys.

EDIT: Great. It's bought one of them, even though I purchased both at the same time. Great. Great. And no confir-
EDIT/EDIT: Ah, I think we're OK.

I hope this story was entertaining.

I think I'll be going to skip the Steam Sale this year. My laptop is in a slow process of melting, so I'll probably miss this one. Aww!

Any good deals going so far?

So far I got 2 Lego Harry Potters, Bully and, er... something else*, for less than 10. Pretty much everything's got a big discount; even relatively new stuff.


*Pro: This game was a AAA game, I know that
*Con: I can't remember what it was without opening Steam - hence the problem!

Just got a new laptop and picked up Tomb Raider (the last-gen one) and Plants vs Zombies. Both for 4.80. I don't think the laptop will run current stuff like Witcher 3 or Doom, but I plan to play games that I missed out on (GTA V, Civ V, Life is Strange...maybe even Dark Souls?), for a low low price.

Yeah, just spent another 11 on The Stanley Parable, Jet Set Radio, Typing of the Dead: Overkill, Portal & Portal 2 and Psychonauts.

That's me set for the rest of 2016...

The Stanley Parable is ace - a legitimately funny videogame, which is rare.

Well, there's my entire steam wishlist on sale. Looks like I'll be picking up a fair few games this year, and they're probably all randoms you guys haven't heard of:

LISA - this RPG has been in the bucket list for a while as it comes highly recommended by a few critics I respect. At 1.74 it's in the bag.

Qvadriga - I've been blessed by Motorsports Manager coming out and being really good. I adore management games and racing, and that's what led to me putting this indie game in my wishlist a while back. It's only a bloody chariot racing management game. Didn't want to punt on it at 15, but at under a fiver I'm going to give it a shot. Been waiting a long time for this to come on sale.

Satalite Reign - another big reduction here, from over 20 to under 4. A steam punk tactical rpg. An aesthetic and genre I love so I'll probably give it a punt.

I was going to add Doom to the basket, but it's sale price isn't actually cheaper than on console so I'll just pick it up from the local at some point. I'm also very tempted by Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun - a recently released Stealth tactics RPG that's received a lot of praise, but I think I can wait until the price comes down a bit further - and Redout - because I miss F-zero.

Trying to resist the urge to splurge on a load of deals. Going to try and make sure I don't buy more than 5 games. I remember picking up Dead Space 2 aaaages ago and I still haven't played it. Really enjoyed the first one though, well until the end game where all the monsters were massive and the sense of intimacy was spent.

That game looks great, the ps4 version isn't out until next year though.

I reckon it'll be very polished when it does hit the Playstation though. They've managed to generate a high degree of community praise for releasing something that seems to be bug free and very enjoyable with a tough difficulty. That's no mean feat given the entitled baby nature of the average steamer.

Yeah, I bought 4 things on the first day Sad but for 10, mind! This is still silly though, as my PC debt is not money but time; so rarely play games on the PC, and have bought several previous summer sales games again on e.g. the PS4, as that was the only way I'd play them.
Thankfully, as the refund facility has wiped out daily deals, I've not been tempted to look every day. *looks again*
