Started mine in advance with the ongoing GOG one: purchased Desktop Dungeons, This War of Mine and de-disked Jane Jensen's Grey Matter. Will probably end the GOG one with Expedition:Conquistador.

I have a small budget for this sale, so I'll probably limit myself to Tomb Raider:GOTY, Stanley Parable and Legend of Grimrock 2 (which has been available on GOG at a nice discount, but I have the first game on Steam, so...)

If you took every single game on sale during the summer sale, bought it, and added it all up, I wonder what percentage of a Chris Roberts spaceship it'd be worth.

I'm limiting myself to buying only things on my wishlist and even then if they are more than 50% off (though I might buy something else on the last day if I make that long without any purchases or if someone really recommends something).

7 Days to Die is 40% off, but I am hoping it will go lower on daily or flash sale.  I'm such a sucker.

Yeah it's still wigged out though. I was finally able to join one and then immediately died before my stuff was even displayed on the screen and then the Respawn button wasn't working. I quit that game and now I can't started a new one (again).

Wow, FUCK this game.

So, my "group" (or whatever it's called) got to level ten, where a boss monster and a bunch of super strong minions spawn.  The minions keep respawning infinitely, but the boss stays down once you whittle down his ~100 million or so hp.  The only way to beat it is to kill everyone in all three lanes at once before any of the minions (who each have something in the area of 5 million hp themselves) respawn. 

Since players are dealing on the order of couple hundred damage per click at this point, obviously this requires coordination between everybody if you want to get anywhere.  Coordination, I should point out, between total strangers in a game with no chat interface and if there's a way to even see who's in your lane I don't know what it is and most of them are idling AFK anyway and the lag is so bad that I'm not even sure what my OWN character is doing half the time.  But that's what's supposed to happen.

So anyway, we brought down the boss and have been fucking up the respawn timers since.  That was THREE HOURS AGO by the way.

I joined a game with a whole bunch of people (picked the highest level game on my friends list) and just let my DPS run.  There seem to be enough tryhards spamming heals to keep me afloat.

They are including Shark Cash, which is what brings the price up.

The problem is that they did not just create a bundle with the Shark cash crap, but they also removed the non-bundled GTA V from the steam store.  It's a clear attempt at getting featured as a "sale" when it really isn't.

After I posted that I guess they realized they were getting a lot of hate from various parts of the internet and put the GTA V by itself back in the store, which incidentally means that GTA V no longer appears as on sale (which is good, cause it isn't).

So, Schild (or whoever else bought it), what's your opinion of Ziggurat? Enough content? Boring, funny, or too simple?

They'e been doing the exact same thing on XBox Live Gold - putting up a bundle of GTA V + x amount of ingame cash for $69.95 and promoting it as the game being on sale.

Actually from what I"m reading, it might also be a way to get around steam refunds, since the Shark Cards are DLC that are immediately consumed on purchase which means it's no longer eligible for a refund on steam.

Which is funny since apparently hacking on GTA V is rampant and people created guns that just create in game currency when they shoot.

I've put in about an hour or so.  Cool visuals, physics and crashes, but not much else wrapped around it currently.  If you liked Destruction Derby back in the day, you'll get more than a strong whiff of nostalgia.
