  1. Hoping to pillage your disposable income, Valve has launched an epic assault on your bank account: the Steam "Perils of Summer" sale. Until July 4, Steam will drastically reduce prices on a new set of games every day, promising discounts of up to 90%. Additionally, tons of game collections have been marked down by anywhere from 25% to 87%, effectively slashing prices on hundreds of titles.

    Steam sucks like an ice cream parlor that opens up across the street when you're trying to lose weight.

    Damn sales. I got The Witcher, Avencast, and Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon. The latter I already own, but I figured $2.03 isn't bad to have a downloadable copy. Maybe that was just a waste of money.

    Because it was a 24-hour (one-day) sale, Kibaruk. There's a new set of daily specials today.

    :) Awesome Kibaruk. A number of us have been playing L4D2 versus mode on the weekends lately. What's your Steam name?
