The summer sales on the games is like the things when you check out at the store, like you see beef jerky and impulsively buy it.  I  bought Fallout New Vegas for $2.50 and Just Cause 1 for $0.27


I got like 8 copies + 1 for myself of JC1. Figured I had a few bucks in my PayPal so I'd get a few copies. Gave away a copy already to my brother and another to my friend.

Would be interested to know some sales figured from this sale.   Which games sold the most copies, basic gross on the sale, etc.

So I bought some games during the Summer Sale when they were on the daily deal or community choice, supposedly the lowest price they'll get during the sale. Well I guess that was true, but now the day after the sale ends they start putting them up as daily deals for much larger discounts. WTF? Trine 2 for example, 85% off today, way cheaper than it was during the sale. Giana Sisters was up yesterday 85% off too. Why have a summer sale if you're just going to screw people over by throwing them on sale a lot cheaper the day after the summer sale ends?


I feel like I've been trolled.
