Get your wallet ready, the Steam Summer Sale starts today

Steam sale

Are PC gamers ready to spend some money?

Things appear to be more straightforward than usual this year.

The unofficial Steam Database Twitter account, gave us a heads up claiming the event would kick off on July 21 and, sure enough, the first deals are now live.

Steam, the video game distribution platform created by Valve Corporation, provides daily discounts on select games, but its recurring seasonal and holiday sales offer broader discounts for longer periods of time. There is, however, a free browser game you can play on Steam's homepage.

Not all games are discounted as publishers don't have to participate in the sale.

Phil Mickelson apologizes for hitting moving ball at US Open
However, the USGA elected not to disqualify Mickelson for committing a serious breach of the rules. "Phil knows the rules". Spieth did acknowledge, though, he did not play his best golf during the U.S.

Ahmed Shehzad tested positive for dope test
According to Cricbuzz , Shehzad was tested during the Pakistan Cup that took place between 19 April and 1 May this year. Sources have informed that World Anti-Doping Agency will decide action against the Pakistani opener.

As such, you should expect top titles like Assassin's Creed: Origins, Hitman, Nier: Automata, Dark Souls 3, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, XCOM 2: War of the Chosen and Total War: Warhammer 2 to see big cost reductions. Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate and Fallout 3: GotY Edition are $10 apiece, and Fallout 4: GotY Edition is $30.

That does mean that you'll need to add a few dollars for outside purchases, but it also means that your number won't be inflated or deflated by games you've acquired through outside deals or through other channels. The battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is down to $20, as is the comedic RPG South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

The sale isn't limited to software, either.

That only scratches the surface of this year's Steam Summer Sale.
