You thought E3 and Origins hurt your wallet – the Steam Summer Sale is here!

Well there goes another whole bunch of hours

Steam Sales.  They are every six months, and we buy a whole heap of games we won’t play because it’s only $2 and I have wanted to see what it’s like for ages!

There are some really good deals though.  Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, for example, is almost half price, which is making me think of not playing it on the PS4.  I know, I’m a rebel what can I say :p

Subsurface Circular, an experimental text-based detective story where you try and solve a mystery confined to a single train carriage, is finally in my cart.  As has the 2014 Time game of the year 80 Days, where you get to participate in Phileas Fogg’s famous race.

This year the folks at Valve are doing something a little different.  You can play some mini-games on the site and help protect the Saliens from the Doldrumz!

Yes it’s cheesy, but it is a fun little touch and you get to win some games in the process.  I have only had a chance to play and protect one sector (and didn’t do great as I haven’t levelled up yet), but I can see this being a quick distraction during the day.

Haven't you always wanted to play a game while you are shopping for games?

Check out the Steam site, even if only for a free game for a couple of weeks in the Saliens web game.

I would also suggest checking out the Asmodee Digital collection, which has been impressively growing over the last few months.  The ability to solo play quite a few games quickly and with no setup can be a lot of fun, and worth a peek!

Until next time,
