Okay, I will confess, I have always been a gamer and mainly on Xbox consoles over the years. I’ve also picked up a Wii and a Nintendo 3DS within that time. When the PlayStation 4 launched, I picked it up on a dare and love it. But behold! I was introduced to PC by several friends and have been told over the years, that PC is the way to go. Boy, did I doubt them? I never had the most amazing rig, but it ran a few games, World of Warcraft being numero uno in Casa de Haddock. I picked up Guild Wars and played that for some time, moved over to another MMO that I can’t think of since it was a 10-minute hit.
But if we fast forward and save you all from the tragic story of a beloved school and work laptop crashing, I needed a PC. I set myself up with an HP Omen 870-244 rig and purchased the dual monitors via Amazon. Okay, sorry, but I still spared you a long story and the other logistics.
Now to the focus of this piece. The Summer Steam Sale. PC gaming has been in my life a mere 6-months if that! Low and behold, the Summer Steam Sale is here, and I have already made some impressive scores.
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut and Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for a combined total of $4.87. That’s less than five dollars!
Before the sale, I picked up Borderlands and Borderlands 2 elsewhere for a little easier on the wallet but picked up all the DLC content that I missed for a measly couple dollars. Tomb Raider was a favorite upon the launch of the PlayStation 4 and would love to have a chance to play this on PC with graphics as high as this thing will allow. Oh yeah, I paid $3.25 for that.
Life is Strange is in there since I would like to try another episodic series. I also grabbed the Bioshock trilogy for a few bucks. Granted I tossed the email with the receipt; it had to of been no more than ten dollars.
Now that I’ve addressed the goodies I have already grabbed in the sale, how about what I hope to grab in the coming weeks, because of video games.
Witcher 3 and the DLC content with it is half price, bringing it to $20. Then there is Dragon Age: Origins for its gorgeous deal of $4.99. Shall I mention all the LEGO games that made a list? Shall I also mention that Elder Scrolls, upon the writing of this article, has also gone on sale for 30-50% off? Since Tomb Raider was on my must play list, it is also on the sale list for 70-89% off their original prices.
I will also mention that the Steam Link, which connects Steam to television is cost effective at this moment and is $2.50 last I heard.
There are so many other great games out there that I am sure we need to pick up and add to our Steam collection. So tell us, what are you eyeballing, or what have you picked up from the Summer Steam Sale? Remember, this sale only goes through until July 5, 2018!
