By the Second Day of Steam Sales…

…my wallet gave to me…

  • 5 bucks for trading trading cards

(because selling Summer Adventure spares makes $$ and buying ten cent trading cards to sneak a point in when my team looks to be winning the day sounds like buying a cheap lottery ticket)

  • 4 XCOM titles

(ok, the complete edition Enemy Unknown, Enemy Within and its two pieces of DLC – even though I know it will go cheaper later, but I made the mistake of downloading and trying the demo and have now convinced myself I’ve put it off for long enough)

  • 3 spare games

(State of Decay, Monaco, the entire Leisure Suit Larry Collection – that last title from GoG – at least these were good 75% off deals for games that I wanted and managed to wait long enough)

  • 2 more DLCs

(Reign of Giants for Don’t Starve, and Dragonfall for Shadowrun – totally not at 75% off, but ehh, I do love both games and can sort of justify paying more to support the developer)

  • and one serious case of zero self-control.

On the bright side, all totaled up, it still costs less than an MMO box on launch day.

The bad news is, there’s ten more days of this?!

    Bought so far the Witcher 1/2, and a 4pack of Age of Empires 2 HD!

    Guuuuh I love summer.


  2. Hehe, if you really can’t control yourself then just don’t log into steam. Go play Guildwars or something! :)

  3. You make it sound as if I am missing something!

  4. […] I do love a good sale, some┬ábloggers have mentioned feeling underwhelmed by it this time around. Some don’t know how they will survive 10 more days of sales, having purchased many games since it’s started. I think I’m less […]

  5. I try to avoid these sales. I have too many games already that I haven’t even started playing.
