Running from June 19th to June 30th is the annual Steam Summer Sale, where console gamers don't realize how much they are actually wasting on games. Rejoice, PC gamers and get games like Tomb Raider for less than ten dollars. Been waiting to nab Arkham Origins incase you missed the Batman 75 sale when it was ten dollars? No worries, it'll probably dip to $7.50 this week. The Steam Summer Sale is a place to discover new games or buy the ones you couldn't have before. My favorite purchase in the Steam Summer Sale was Tropico 4, which was glitched at 3.50$ for a few minutes. This happens frequently in the Summer Sale and you will not get in trouble for purchasing a game at an errorenous price. Below is my personal guide to the Steam Summer Sale.
Do you want to buy a game in the Summer Sale? Well, guess what, Don't. If the game is not on sale as a "Daily" or "Flash" sale. Don't purchase it. Set an alarm every 8 hours starting at 1PM EST and try to power nap as much as you can. Check Flash sales AS SOON as they start to find any glitched prices. If you see any super savings, purchase the game AS A GIFT IN YOUR INVENTORY and leave it as that. If the game you wanted to buy did not become a flash or daily, on the last day of the sale you are free to purchase it since the price will not go any lower. "Wait a minute, now I have all these gifts in my inventory! Why?" well, now you can TRADE THOSE GAMES or SELL THEM at a higher price for any other game you may have missed or could not afford. That is the beauty of Steam. You can purchase gifts for friends or trade them for other games. On the last day of the sale, activate the games you REALLY want into your library and trade the rest off for a profit. Enjoy!
