Steam summer sale

Ahhh, it's that time again. When our wallets quake in fear as we ravage every last pound to get the latest 75% off item, and remind ourselves that as consumers, we really are reckless, but more importantly, we know a good deal when we see one xD And we see many..

Going to make a personal account of my casualties here so I can keep track of it.

Most of the mainstream games are already in my list thankfully, so that's one saving grace.

As for the badges, I've completed them all, apart from the community voting sales, which I'll have to wait for. Also, please for the love of all that is good, Arma II needs to go on sale. I want to play DayZ so badly.

I'll keep updating the subtotal of this post as the days go on. Interested to see how roped in I get. I seriously don't think it can be as bad as last year though, where I literally ravaged the hell out of the sale..

I have to be sensible this year actually because I have been saving heavily for some expensive music plugin packages (the new 'Komplete' collection from native instruments when it comes out, and also the complete composers collection HD). So that will play on my conscience, which is great.

Hope you all get some nice deals on the games you want and more importantly, viva la PC revolution!

EDIT - Sooo yeah, on Day 2 now and it's already kind of out of hand. Observing your own addiction in real-time has to be some sort of irony surely.

FINAL EDIT - Fuuuuuucck.
