Is it…is it summer already? I locked the door to my apartment in March when it was cold and blustery outside and…well, it’s June in San Francisco, so it’s probably cold and blustery outside. But the point is that I’m reduced to marking time by the various Steam sales, and that means today it’s summer.
Yes, the Steam Summer Sale kicks off Thursday, and runs through July 9 at 10AM Pacific. Like the last few sales, there’s a points-driven meta layer that rewards you for purchasing games and such. “Rewards” is a bit strong of a term maybe, given it’s all profile backgrounds and chat effects and the like, but hey, it’s a “souvenir” of the sale, as Valve puts it.Â
