Today's crop of deals in the Steam Summer Sale is now ripe for the picking.
Among my favorites in the daily deals are Batman Arkham Origins and BioShock Infinite, each for $7.49. Our resider coder, Bruno, says Endless Space is worth a look at $7.49, too.
The current community choice picks, which will be on offer for eight hours, include the last two games I finished, both of which are excellent. We've already talked about Tomb Raider; it's a steal at five bucks. Just last night, I completed Mirror's Edge at long last. I'd pop five bucks for it just to see the crisp, clean art style and innovative gameplay. Looks astounding in 4K. It's a pretty good game, too, despite some rough edges (like the combat.) Mirror's Edge reminds me a lot of Portal, in some ways, with the running puzzles.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is still selling for $2.99 for another 24-ish hours. We didn't call it out yesterday, but for that price, you're required to buy it. Don't question; just accept. You'll thank me later.
The amount of gaming value you can get right now is just silly. Seriously, if you don't have a gaming rig, go build yourself the budget sample from our latest System Guide and throw a few bucks at these games today. You'll be set for many, many hours of solid entertainment.
