As predicted/expected/hoped, the Steam Summer Sale went live at 17:00 UTC today.
I have been much less ambivalent about the upcoming sale than I have been in past years. I am feeling the itch for a new game or three. So as soon as the sale went live I checked my wishlist and… nothing I added recently is on sale.
This year the activities are driven by quests to obtain sticker by performing various activities. Going through your discover queue is the obvious one, but there are other tasks.
Of course, the immediate heavy load on the store meant that such tasks led to errors, but it will smooth out once the rush to find the inevitably comically mis-priced items has died down.
Since my wishlist let down my initial rush of enthusiasm, I’ll have to stalk the store to see what I can find. Or maybe I will buy something I really want at full price. It’s been known to happen.
How are you feeling about Steam this summer?
