What I Bought (And What I Didn't) During The Steam Summer Sale 2017
Steam Summer Sales are something I look forward to every year. In the past, they have been filled with unbelievable prices that I couldn't pass up. This year it seemed a bit different. The deals didn't seem as prevalent, and some games were not discounted at all! I did manage to find a few gems that I have been meaning to pick up that were at their all time lowest price. Speaking of which, if you ever need to know the historically low price of a game across multiple websites (including Steam), you should check out IsThereAnyDeal.Com as it will notify you when something from your wishlist goes on sale, or even when it drops to a new all-time low price.
Here is what I did end up with from the sale:
Based on the hit card game, I grabbed this and all of the DLC available for under five bucks! Hopefully, I can get online and play with a few friends that are far away as I really like playing this in person.
This game has been on my radar for quite awhile. It's sold extremely well for an indie title and has a big cult following. There is even a line of plushies that you can purchase of the Slime Rancher characters. This was my most expensive purchase at $13.39, but something I really wanted to play.
Darkest Dungeon was recommended to me by my friend Robin, she swears by this game. A turn-based RPG, this game has become very popular recently. The developers just released a DLC pack as well, although I did not pick that up as I want to give the base game a shot first.
I also picked up the Elegant Engineering Bundle, as I already had Mini Metro and Poly Bridge and wanted to really play Train Valley, Simple Planes, and Turmoil. Games I really wanted to play but didn't purchase due to no sale at all: Factorio and Player Unknown's Battlegrounds. I hope Steam comes up with something new, Flash sales, earning additional discounts, or something new altogether to freshen the Summer/Winter sales up a bit. The sticker collecting was definitely not as exciting as past summer sales like the Alien Clicker game, and the Team-based events. Who knows, maybe we will see a radical change. Or maybe the same old sales.
