Time to get poor.

You knew it was coming and finally the Steam Summer Sale has arrived. Running until June 30 US time (so probably the morning of June 31 here), Gabe and co. are here to empty your wallet of all your internet love, coffee change with absurdly good deals.
The first day kicks off with headline deals on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for a stupidly good US$4. Don’t Starve is an equally good offering at US$3.74, as is XCOM: Enemy Unknown for US$8.49. Divinity: Original Sin, DayZ and Dead Rising 3 all receive small discounts of 15%, 20% and 25% each, while Far Cry 3 and Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion are knocked down to a much more reasonable US$7.48 and US$8 respectively.
In the flash deals department, Hotline Miami is going at a more than reasonable US$1.49 for the next few hours, while Dead Island: Riptide, Mirror’s Edge and DmC: Devil May Cry all have 75% discounts. DmC is a real good buy if you haven’t played it already, but nowhere near as good as deal as Hotline Miami.
This year’s Summer Sale also has a Summer Adventure for gamers to enjoy, with craftable badges rewarding you with in-game items, team and community rewards and the potential for free stuff. You can also vote on the next set of flash deals, with the battle currently between a combination of aRPGs in Van Helsing 2, South Park: The Stick of Truth, 7 Days to Die and Torchlight 2 or indies with cracker soundtracks such as Dust: An Elysian Tail, Trine 2 Complete Story, FEZ and Valdis Story: Abyssal City.
