Steam Summer Sale 2013

You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
Just open your wallet and BUY BUY BUY
Gaben Claus is coming to town

He's making a sale
And checking it twice.
Buy it now before it doubles in price!
Gaben Claus is coming to town

He's slashing down the prices
He knows how much you make
He'll mark down all your favourite games
You'll be broke for goodness sake!
O! You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
Just open your wallet and BUY BUY BUY
Gaben Claus is coming to town
Gaben Claus is coming to town
Gaben Claus is coming to town

Hotline Miami and Bioshock are the two big deals today.
I am the 1%!

Is there any sort of a meta game this time around?

More trading cards for the meta, they're really trying to push that.

You can obtain the summer trading cards:
For every $10 you spend in the store
For every third vote in the community choice
For every badge you craft during the sale period.

If you were crafting badges any time last week, you'll find that these are the mystery cards you've been getting.

This is hard to be cool and suave while being informative at the same time. Goddamn my coolness.
In my experience, common sense isn't too common.

I'd forgotten about the 503 errors the sales bring ... at first they were slightly amusing, but now that I've spent half an hour stuck in a loop of store home page -> game page -> error page, they're a lot less funny. :/ Kinda wish Valve would prepare for these things a little better!

If anyone is considering picking up Toki Tori 2+, hit me up first - I have four extra 10%-off coupons I can hand out. Might want to wait until sometime late this afternoon though, as I can't get the game myself yet, plus I don't know how trading has been affected by the sale.

EDIT: Finally managed to get through long enough to nab it! If you want a coupon, let me know.

Fine irony: First day of the steam sale, the only game I want to buy is not on steam.

Dishonored didn't win that first one? You have failed me steam voters! That is probably the cheapest it has ever been-- I guess the one benefit is that 66% does count toward all the dlc. Picking Krieg up on the cheap.
