Big grin Valve delays summer Steam Game Festival

Just not to worry jmmijo... saaaallleee willll beee llllaaaaaattteeee...

Quote:
Valve’s impending Steam Game Festival, originally scheduled to begin June 9, has been delayed by one week. The “Summer Edition” of the Steam event will now run June 16-22, Valve said in a news release.

The summer version of the Steam Game Festival was supposed to take place during what would have been the week of E3. Valve promises time-limited demos or “short playable experiences” from upcoming games, and a chance to connect with participating developers of those games, during the event.

Is this the Steam sale though? It sounds like a different type of event.

It's very oriented around game demos, so download and I play them I guess?

So I take it there is not way to use the Points Shop to purchase any trading cards ?

Seems only things like emotes and backgrounds.

I bet I can't even give away my points

I got ONE of the stickers to test, and yes you can't do crap with it, not even turn it into gems.

I hate stuff clogging up my inventory.

Yep, the sale does not disappoint my wishlist. I spotted that Doom64 is a buck and a half, so I may be nabbing some more stuff before the sale is out...

Steam Bundles are only "Purchase as a gift" now if you already have some of the bundled items? Does this mean I can't buy only the missing items at the bundled discount price anymore?

That sounds like something that a publisher is able to decide for themselves.

Yes, you get the price down with every game you already own from that bundle, bought multiple games like that already just to get a single one that cost more on it's own.
No, you don't get to giveaway the rest of the games.

Yes I do see that frequently but many times I will get a discount on that single game from the dev at an even better discount
