We interrupt this sleepy Sunday afternoon to bring you good tidings from the Steam Summer Sale, which has just unleashed its finest selection of deals yet. Both Borderlands 2 and Tomb Raider (the recent reboot) are now selling for five bucks a pop. In my book, these are two of the best games of the past few years. Pick them up for that price while you can.
The flash sale for the excellent Sleeping Dogs at $3.99 will make you forget all about Watch_Dogs and graphics shenanigans; its graphics aren't nerfed. Also on offer in the next eight hours is Metro: Last Light Complete Edition for $6.79.
Some stellar deals from yesterday are still in effect for another 24-ish hours, including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for $4.99, Dragon Age: Origins for $7.49, Terraria for $1.99, and The Stanley Parable for $5.99. I grabbed that last one; already owned the others.
I'm about to hit "add to cart" on South Park: The Stick of Truth for 33% off, or $40.19. In that same cart will be The Wolf Among Us, an interactive graphic novel thingy that has gotten a lot of buzz. It's selling for 66% off at $8.49.
Those are my highlights, but your taste in games may differ. You owe it to yourself to have a look at all of the current deals.
