I'm really hoping to see Dark Souls II at 50% off. I'm budgeting around $60-75 for games this sale and even at half off that would be a chunk of it. Also any game that is on my wish list will get looked over as well.

For once I actually feel like I'm caught up. I can't think of anything I'm willing to pay more than $5-10 for, and most of that stuff is too new to see any real discount.

There's still over 100 games on my wishlist, but I'm not going to buy anything unless it's $5 or less. Trying to finish a couple decks for MTG so I need to save some cash, but if a game is cheap enough, I'll probably pick it up.

If Wolfenstein goes cheap enough, I might pick that up, but I've got a ton of games on the backlog as well.


(Not that I expect much, it's too new for that).

Yeah, eying Wolfenstein and Watch Dogs too, but doubt these will be cheap this round - probably 10% if they even go on sale.

I'll probably grab Assassin's Creed IV: Blag Flag on PC as some point, so if it goes cheap enough I could see getting that. Maybe Batman Blackgate and Rayman Legends? Also a bunch of randoms on my wish list that I can't remember why I put them there.

new game, so that's a fair price...
I Hope they got most of the bugs out of it.

Same plan here, mostly, until those damn cards badges consume me.

And we're off.

Dead Rising 3, was a surprise, didn't realize there would be a PC version. Not sure why, since all the others have been.

So far nada.

Was announced at E3, and Dead Rising 1 has never been on anything but the 360

Dead Rising 1 is still my favorite.

The zombie walk and the disembowel were classics.

It's crazy how each sale they go further and further with the gamification of buying things. Clearly it's working well for them, so I don't blame them, but it's especially ridiculous this time around.

I tried crafting a badge, then realized they don't give you enough on their own. You have to either buy the cards or trade cards. I'm not paying for this crap, so I went and looked at the trade forums and most people want more cards than they will give in return. So F them.

I don't need badges.

Of course they are currently getting slammed.

So far I'm just in for a couple Pinball FX2 tables that I got for consoles but not yet for the PC.

Do we think Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will go below 40%? I'll probably get it at $24, but can easily wait if there's a feeling it will drop - maybe a Flash Sale or something? Also not sure if 40% is enough for Rayman Legends.

Divinity: Original Sin is currently 20% off for the beta - the first 20 hours, and the full game unlocks in a couple weeks.

Dark Souls II is at 33% off. I do no think it is going to go any cheaper then that for the summer sale. Oh do I get it now or do I wait until winter..... I have been itching to play it..

Yup. thats my philosophy. If it's not a daily deal, or 75% or more off, don't buy it until the last day

lol, maybe dark souls isnt the game for you then? I've never played any of them, but everything I've heard about them makes it sound like something I'd absolutely hate....lots of repetition, random deaths, brutal difficulty, unforgiving mechanics etc.

The first drives me crazy, but I still have fun playing it. I have to take it in small doses I plan to do the same with this one. I enjoy the setting of the game and the pure fantasy value of it. For some reason as frustrating as it is I put up with it.

I've got so little time to play nowadays I can't see myself using it on something so actively frustrating. I'm all for difficult games like super meat boy, where it's still hard as hell but you don't get set back more than a few seconds if you screw up....but from what I've heard you can frequently get set back like a half hour because of one careless error.....I just don't think I can handle that.

Woot! Summer Sale is off, I have been selling my TF2 Crates as fast as I make them to get a cent or 2 to go to some new games...yes I am that frugal!

I just bought Don't Starve to gift to my wife since I thought she would like it but nothing for myself yet.

I considered Witcher 1&2 but I will never get through them both in time before the 3rd one comes out.

I'm holding out to try and get a great deal on Borderlands 2 Season Pass for all the DLC as well as South Park.

Not really any other games I am very interested in at the moment. I would also like to see GTA5 have a pre-release sale but I doubt we will see it.

Not really anything else I am that interested in at the moment. We shall see what the deals are, I dont think I have ever paid more than $15 for a game.

Trying to enjoy the simple things in life.
