It may have started later than anticipated, but this year's Steam summer sale has commenced, so everyone be quiet and go scan the home page for savings like you've never scanned before.
Daily deals will run today through Sunday, July 22 and this time we've also got "flash sales" to keep up with. These are discounts that are available for less time than even the dailies; the first batch includes Deus Ex: Human Revolution ($7.49), Mafia II ($7.49), Rayman Origins ($14.99), and SpaceChem ($2.49).
Beyond that, Steam is letting users vote on which games they'd like to see go on sale. If you're having trouble viewing specific game pages or even logging in to the website, you aren't alone. Also, remember to pace yourself so you don't overpay for something that ends up being a heavily discounted daily deal.
Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
