Leif: Its that time of year once again when everyones wallets suddenly become devoid of cash. That time of year when you think you are safe but nooo the games are calling you once again. Its Valves annual Steam Summer Sale.
Now if you have some extra cash to spare by all means splurge on all the games that are up for discount. But if you are looking for quality games that will garner you the best bang for your buck, then weve got you covered.
''The Steam Summer Sale is in full swing. Its not hard to be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of games on offer, often leading people to miss out on some gems. Fear not, the following list of games is some of the best titles on offer, at the best prices. ''
PayPal has ended its eye-catching £5 off £20 spent on the Steam sale voucher because the offer reached its cap. PayPal made a song and dance about the offer in a note to press that also revealed the start date and time of this summer's Steam sale. The idea was UK customers who spent £20 or more at Steam would also receive £5 off the purchase when paying with PayPal. The company's press release said the offer would expire on 5th July, alongside the Steam summer sale.
To put it in the crudest possible terms, when I hopped back online to try out big update last week there was, for a period, just one public game in the multiplayer lobby. One. In a major, multiplayer-focused PC game, available on Steam, and less than a month after launch. Checking in for games throughout the day - and to be sure this wasn't just a mid-morning lull - I saw at most half a dozen live at a time. It's no anomaly. Perhaps even worse, last time I checked there were as many active games in the server browser of Soulstorm, an expansion to the original Dawn of War, that was released back in 2008. Big franchises don't get many second chances these days - just ask Mass Effect - and while Dawn of War is certainly an established name in its class I'd be surprised if it showed more resilience than EA's multi-platform blockbuster. As well as it may have done critically, the brutal fan reaction means this is a game that is sliding at an alarming rate towards irrelevance. The latest update is designed to turn things around. It might sound like hyperbole, but this is probably the most important patch to go live in the series' history. There are a handful of reasons why Dawn of War 3 is struggling, and to the invested community they're likely both obvious and, at this point, painfully well-trodden: the art style, whilst undeniably grimdark, emphasises clarity over gritty photorealism; the campaign, whilst entertaining, is linear and without much in the way of longevity; and above all, until now Dawn of War 3's headline multiplayer mode was its only multiplayer mode. Oh, and it's a MOBA.
