Default Steam Summer Sale 2014

I just bought xcom and Sins of a Solar Empire something. I got strangely addicted to the first one of the latter, . and heard good things about xcom.

The Man

I picked up Mirror's Edge for $5. When this class is over I'm probably going to need to start clearing out my backlog.

You’re better off not dreaming of the things to come
Dreams are always ending far too soon

“When I was twelve, I milked my eel into a pot of turtle stew.
I flogged the one-eyed snake, I skinned my sausage, I made
the bald man cry into the turtle stew, which I do believe my
sister ate. At least, I hope she did.” -Tyrion Lannister
“The management is very bad. In fact, let’s not mince words: The management is terrible!
We’ve had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars, and lunatics making a string of catastrophic
decisions. This is a plain fact. But who elected them? It was you! You who appointed these
people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I’ll admit that
anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious
incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without
question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous
and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was, ‘No.’” -V
“If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.” -Thomas Pynchon
“All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.” -Adam Smith
“Why throw money at problems? That's what money is for. Should the nation's wealth be redistributed? It has been and continues to be redistributed to a few people in a manner strikingly unhelpful.” -Kurt Vonnegut
“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” -John Steinbeck
“If you took the most ardent revolutionary, vested him in absolute power, within a year he would be worse than the Tsar himself.” -Mikhail Bakunin
“In all history, there is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare.” -Sun Tzu
“...pero Capitán, obedecer por obedecer, así, sin pensarlo... sólo lo hacen gentes como usted, Capitán.” -Dr Ferreiro, Pan’s Labyrinth
“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is: infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern.” -William Blake
“Yeah, you really got my act down good, guys. That'll be great. ‘You know, when I’m done ranting about elite power that rules the planet under a totalitarian government that uses the media in order to keep people stupid, my throat gets parched! That’s why I drink Orange Drink.’” -Bill Hicks (note: album artwork may sometimes be nsfw) · Fool's Gold · FFOF · FF

I'm hoping some interesting stuff I don't have goes on sale. So far it's stuff I've got and stuff I don't want ;.;

I pirated Mirror's Edge way back when, it was a neat little game with interesting gameplay mechanics and such but... didn't stick.

I posted this on my Tumblr, but I'm honestly just waiting for the Arkham games to price drop just a little bit more. Then I'll have even less of a reason to touch my 360. Plus, buying the PC GOTY versions actually costs less than trying to buy DLC for the console versions, soo..

I'm tempted to buy Prison Architect ... but unsure about Early Access games. Hhm.

I really wish I had spare money for The Witcher 3 right now - 20% off because I have the other two games ;.;

I'll drink to that.

OT: Waiting for Dark Souls 2 to show up for the day. It is already 33% for the duration of the summer sale, but it will go cheaper. Most likely will go down to 50%, but there is a small chance it might go 66%.

Now we play the waiting game... the waiting game sucks; who wants to play Hungry Hungry Hippos?
