Had no idea that Steam had such a sale. Now that I do...I will have a lot of games.
Yeah, they have a big sale in the summer, one around Christmas and have had smallish sales around Thanksgiving and Halloween (they had a zombie game themed one before). Just FYI.
Also, don't buy anything that's not a Daily Deal, Flash sale or Community Choice winner until the last day. The "standard" sale prices will be good for the whole sale and you won't wind up buying a game for 50% off just to have it be 75% off as a Daily deal or Flash sale the next day.

Cool thanks for the heads up. Both games I got so far were from those areas.
Oh I lied I bought Last Remnant as well SE RPG's might have fallen on hard times, but they are still my favorite. 3.50 or some sh*t....well worth it.(no I haven't played it yet...but w/e I payed for FF7 4 times now since its release...) Edited, Jul 14th 2013 9:29pm by rdmcandie
Check out tips in the article at the start of this thread. They'll help you decide when/what to buy. For instance, the chrome addon will give you price history, so you can know if it's low or not.
Also, Kotaku is covering the sale. You can look there.
And feel free to ask here if you want to know if a price is worthwhile.
Something that's important to note, remember that a game at a steep discount might not actually be worth it. Indie games (and others) are VERY commonly bundled in PC sales, all the time. Plenty of retailers have different bundles each week. So, sure, you could grab Torchlight 2 for $5, and that's not bad per se. But I bought 1 and 2 bundled together (I think with something else) for $5. That said
, if there's something you want, because you think you'll play it soon, and it's a decent discount to a price you'll pay, go for it.
Last Remnant is fun, I've put about 30 hours or so total into it. But it's not your standard RPG. And there is a depth to the battle and leveling system that will @#%^ with your head if you are a perfectionist. And "grinding" is actually a bad thing to do for your characters, contrary to most RPGs.
Crap, I'm a perfectionist... Edited, Jul 14th 2013 9:36pm by idiggory
