    Seems like half of my wishlist is on sale :/

    Left 4 Dead for $1.99 is probably a no-thinker
    Maybe Bioshock Remastered for $6.59 too
    /still need to replace GPU before I can go too 'modern', even at 1080p

    Just saw that, too. Why no front page item? Kyle is getting slow in his old age.

    All of the Anno series are 75% off, but Ubisoft is EA's satanic henchman :(
    Also Sniper Elite I, II & III bundle for $12 is a go for me

    If you're one of the 100 people in the world who hasn't bought one in a previous sale, the Steam Link is now down to $2.50.... Shipping kinda kills it but a heads up nonetheless

    People still get exited for these? Why? Don't you know about bundle or global key sites?

    My Steam acquisition method spams "Retail" instead of "Purchase".

    Cheating feels a little better. Bugs seem less these days. I don't really see the Fortnite/PUBG comparisons honestly. Sure it's battle royale but that's the only similarity to me. Like any of these games, if you have friends that play it's worth the buy but I don't know if it's worth it to play solo.

    Missing Portal 2 in my library after enjoying Portal years ago. If you buy the "bundle" the cost is $1.49, so I couldn't pass it up this time.

    You cant really say Fortnite is better. Other than them both being battle royale games they are completely different.

    I think it's better. Nicer graphics. Lower system requirements. More stable. Less bugs. No hackers. Free.

    Let's not compare that Bob the Builder bull shite with PubG. Completely different game mechanics.


    OT. Picked up LFD2, haven't played that in years.

    Thanks OP

    No hackers? You should look up aim assist abuse. People using ADS aim assist scripts to cheat like crazy in this game right now.

    I picked up Hollow Knight on the sale, been waiting for a sale on that one. It was not an expensive title but my backlog is so big that it seemed like a waste to buy it at full price. Speaking of backlog, this sale is gonna stuff that baggage even more. I got a few titles in my wishlist that I am tempted to get as there are decent deals on them. But the best deals during the summer sale seem to be on hardware. The Steam Link is just $2.5, I'll probably pick that up too, along with the games I shortlist from my wish list.

    I bought the L4D1 & 2 bundle, the Sniper Elite 1-3 bundle, and Railway Empire
    Still debating about the Anno series (worth dealing with Ubisoft?)

    Railway Empire is constantly crashing and causing video card to reset... so I have a support ticket working on that (DirectX problems??)

    /badly need a new GPU :(

    I wonder how much money Valve loses from the cart emptying itself and the searches clearing themselves.
