Steam Summer Sale has begun! Hide your wallet, leave it with a parent, a friend, you girl, or you can just as well expect bankruptcy by the time the sale is over.
Known as Gabe gets rich period, Steam Summer Sale is a time when millions of people buy the 1 or 2 games they wanted for a long time at a reduced price. It is also the time when many people will people buy 15 or 100 games they never wanted, will never play and already hate after 10 seconds from buying.
Why would anyone buy dozens of games that they don’t want? Simple, they have slashed prices of up to minus 99 percent. Some Games cost one dollar or two.
Basically it is the same thing as when you see your best friend in some fashion jacket that has nothing to do with the way he or she normally dresses. You can almost hear the word coming out of your friend’s mouth “It was on sale, just 10 bucks!”
The Steam sale consists of 3 types of money spending options. One is the Daily Deals witch offer huge discounts for certain games every 24 hours, sometimes up to 48 if Valve thinks’ some people might still empty their children’s lunch fund on the specific offers.
The second option is the Flash Sales, which offer you the option of quick thinking, you either spend your money now, on an offer that lasts a maximum of 12 hours, or you will regret that decision the rest of your computer using life.
The third option is the Monster deals, and here is where things get really weird.
The Monster Deals are available to you if the steam community unites and defeats monsters in an retro looking browser game.
When the community reaches certain milestones by playing the game they unlock deals, the more milestones reached the more deals are available to you. Milestone can consist of the number of people playing or the number of clicks registered.
However this year the number of milestones reached might not depend on the number of people willing to click a 1987 looking game , but rather on valve’s servers.
Many users have complained that the Monster Deals game is either crashing or simply not starting and such news is never good when you consider how most gamers are world famous for their patience and understanding.
In any case, do what it must to reach the greatest achievement of them all this Steam Summer Sale, which is I GAVE ALL MY MONEY TO GABE achievement.
Once unlocked you can expect rewards such as, your significant other leaving you, parents questioning your sanity, coworkers assurance that you are just weird and off course noodles for every meal.
