I can’t remember the last time I purchased a boxed PC game from a retail store.* It’s just too easy to buy them from Steam online and get it downloaded directly to my PC. Twice a year, the other time being right before the new year, Steam puts on a big sale. It began today and goes through the 4th of July.
There’s some deals going on the whole time like all of Introversion’s games (Uplink, Darwinia, Defcon, Multiwinia) for $5 and daily deals for example in the next 13 hours and 40 minutes from this post you can buy Unreal Gold, Unreal Touranment 2004, Unreal 2, Unreal Tournament 3, and Unreal Tournament: GoTY for $13.60.
It is a time for me to go back and try out games I wasn’t willing to pay full price for, and the sale prices are a serious threat to my wallet, but so many games!
