    For any gamers out there, or even someone looking to get into some games, steam summer sale is a great time to do it :).


    They have there regular sales that change every 24 hours,
    They have "Flash Sales" which change every 8,
    They have "Community Choice" where the community votes on a game to get an even larger discount, vote is on 3 different games every 8 hours

    The regular sales although not advertised as much are still on sale for an additional 24 hours after there in the spotlight.

    I usually spend a lot of money during this time :D

    I was tempted to buy the new Bioshock game, still am a little but I usually hate buying single player games.

    With that said... I bought Sleeping Dogs when it went on sale earlier in the game and do not regret it one bit, if you're into GTA style games, you'll love Sleeping Dogs :D

    Never was a fan of the GTA Games although I am looking at Black Ops 2 which is currently 50% off which is tempting. :p I might purchase this.

    I usually use a Russian friend of mine to buy games as they get almost a 40-50% discount. (y).

    I have a German friend that does this lol... why do Russians get such discounts? What's the deal?

    It's the exchange rate, same as with India.

    I spent $100 during the Winter sale and got about $250 worth of stuff (y) (Including discount price).

    Just be careful with getting round country restrictions etc. - I've been put on alert lists (according to steam support) and blocked from purchasing several times for buying games for Germans. I'm currently blocked from purchasing again right now (they re-block me every sale).

    I think you can use a VPN to play the games registered in other countries. I am not sure haven't tried steam yet but in theory it should be possible.

    You can but as per Steam ToS it is not allowed and could end up in your account being blocked completely if I'm not wrong.
