Don't get your hopes up though, the summer sales have been pretty weak the last couple of years. But who knows, maybe the pressure of the Epic Store will lead to some more generosity this year. Because I'm pretty sure both Epic and GoG will be holding a summer sale exactly in the same time frame

Here's a couple of good deals I spied off of my wishlist (good deal = the price goes down to something I am very comfortable paying for the game):

Blasphemous (45% off)

Ion Fury (40% off)

Gris (60% off)

Black Mesa (35% off)

Metal Wolf Chaos XD (50% off)

It's going to be a really tough choice, because I'm only actually going to buy one of these games... I think it's time for Ion Fury.

I already got all items I'm willing to spend money for, so far.
If I see some steal, I might add it, but usually this doesn't rotate so much, so I don't expect any siginficant drops on my wishlist anymore.

At least I have now Doom Eternal as well. Funny thing is, when I bought the four items in the package, it was cheaper to put them seperately into the bin (~32€) then using the package price (~50€). Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Normally it is, but I've seen on occasion where this is not the case.

I also get hit with the special package pricing from a Dev/Pub and can only purchase as a GIFT, this annoys me too.

Pretty sure it's the DEV/PUB making this decision and not Valve/Steam.

May I add:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1148590/DOOM_64/

https://store.steampowered.com/app/4...ry_World_Tour/

Those two are 3.48 (€/$) and even if the second is a bit of a rip-off, they are at those prices worth it fo' shizzle.

Well just trudging along and scooping up the cheap games and some of the not so cheap.

Looking at getting more of the Soundtracks too, but end up getting the bundles with the main game and any DLC

God I love Spiff. he has a recent series of modded Minecraft videos where he literally plays an evil dictator over a realm of hundreds of players. It's... majestic.
