DAILY MANIFESTO

The Steam Summer Sale Is Over, What Did You Get?

Posted on Monday, July 23 @ 11:28:59 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

After almost two weeks of game sale adrenaline the Steam Summer Sale has come to a close. Award winning games like Portal 2, Batman: Arkham City, and Dead Space 2 were offered for anywhere between 60% to 75% off, and now just about everyone is backlogged till kingdom come. First world problems, right?

I was hoping to pick up Max Payne 3 for less than $29.99 but it never broke past that point, but I did end up with the following:
  • Alan Wake ($7.49)
  • Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City ($4.99)
  • L.A. Noire ($4.99)
  • Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit ($4.99)
  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition ($15.99)
I've already managed to beat Alan Wake, which was a pleasant experience, and I've spent a few hours in the other four. The Witcher 2 is my favorite of the five so far, and I feel bad having missed out on it when it came out over a year ago. I already had the PS3 version of L.A. Noire but I never even got close to beating it, so I figured I'd give the PC version a shot... and chances are I won't beat it either. It's repetitive, but sweet baby Jesus does it look good on High settings.

The sale probably lasted longer than it should have since we saw a few games appear three or more times, but overall it was a fantastic year for cheap Summer games.

So, what did you buy?
