Checkpoint: Steam Summer Sale 2012 Edition

checkpoint-steam-summer-sale-2012

This year’s Steam Summer Sale started a bit late. It had people worried but for the next week or so, folks will be far too busy refreshing Steam on a daily basis and then some.

Valve introduced 8 hour Flash Sales and Community Choice sales that have people checking the site more than once per day for new deals and new opportunities to give them more money. I’ve visited multiple times in hopes of something new and exciting but I only came away with: 1) Trine 2 and 2) the Alan Wake Collection.

Checkpoint: Boxing Day 2011 Edition

boxing-day-2011

It started out as Boxing Day, but retailers have transformed it into Boxing Week. It also used to start on December 26th, but now it starts online December 24th at 8:00 PM EST for most retailers with a website. And if we take digital distribution retailers into consideration, it started whenever Valve put up their holiday Steam sales.

When I started to compile this year’s Boxing Day 2011 round-up post, there wasn’t much of interest. But more and more deals were unearthed, my “Boxing Day” haul grew into something quite substantial:

  1. Killzone 3: Helghast Edition for $19.99 ($110 off)
  2. Nier (360) for $9.99 ($10 off)
  3. Saint’s Row: The Third (PC) for $19.99 ($30 off)
  4. Renegade Ops 4-pack (PC) for $10.19 (~$20 off)
  5. Batman: Arkham City (PC) for $20.92 ($30 off)
  6. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (360) for $19.99 ($30 off)

Most of those are PC games which I cannot take advantage of until next month’s new bandwidth allotment becomes available.
