Steam Summer Sale Day 1 Extravaganza

Well it’s finally here, the moment we have all been waiting for. Time to give Gabe Newell all of our money, whether we would like to or not- because how can you pass up deals like these? It’s important to have goals during the Steam Summer Sale. And by goals I of course mean limits. These limits are self-imposed, and by self-imposed I of course mean imposed by your significant other. And by significant other I of course mean your wallet. You see where I’m going with this? Don’t break the bank. Don’t go for the vault either, stick to the cashier drawers because you’re better off escaping with a few grand then ending up in prison. Or something like that.

Do you find yourself confused by which Steam games you should buy and which ones you should skip? Of course you do. Here at Steam Daily Deal we will use the process of elimination and possibly deduction to make the most informed choice as to which game to purchase each day.

Now on to the games!

Ah, this must be one of those famous Valve ARGs. Who knows what secrets dwell within? Probably hats for TF2 or a CSGO knife with a picture of a cat on it. Or it could even be Half Life 3! Time to mash the F5 key until something else happens.

Annnnd we’re in. Let’s narrow this down a little bit first. Right off the bat forget Dead Rising 3 that crap isn’t even out yet. Impulse buying is for instant gratification, and if that game isn’t installed RIGHT NOW then there is no point in getting it. Just to make the decision slightly easier we will also cross off Day Z and Divinity Original Sin, because those are Early Access Games and the deals aren’t even that great. We can also cross off Democracy 3 because everybody knows that there’s nothing more boring than the beautiful and highly regarded process of Democracy, much like soccer, or “feetball” as the rest of the world knows it.

This leaves us with a slightly more manageable choice between Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion, Don’t Starve, The Witcher 2, Far Cry 3 and XCOM. Any of these are respectable choices. At first glance the best deal would appear to be The Witcher 2 based on price/content/sale percentage. But the choice is up to you, do you want to play an FPS or an RTS or an Indie Game or a tactical shooter or an RPG? If you don’t give a shit the safest, most sensible choice is probably Witcher 2.

Verdict: Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition.

Editor’s note: All of these games are sequels except for Don’t Starve. If you own the original but have never played it, give this some thought before you make your purchase- if you have the first Witcher but you never played it, will you really play the second? THESE ARE THE DECISIONS WE MUST FACE.
