Not a summer sale, but GMG has 25% off all games with code JUNE25, which I think includes preorders, so you could definitely save on a new or unreleased game that way. I’m not sure if it stacks with the other regular sales going on at the moment.
Guild Wars 2 has both expansion packs for $15 each or $25 together.
Unfortunately I missed a few - we had a ubisoft summer sale, paradox summer sale, and I think a gog summer sale all in the last few weeks which are now over.
Voidu is having a summer sale with a coupon code SUMMER18 for an extra 18% off listed prices.
Gamersgate is basically always running a sale on something. I don’t know if they have a legitimate “Summer Sale” planned or not.
Like Gamersgate, Razer Game Store is always running a deal on something. They have a weekly promotion where, if you buy one of the four “featured games” that week, you’ll get a $15 voucher for a future purchase. You need to spend $30 (and one game must be at least $15) to use the voucher but it can still be nice.
Nuuvem sale. It’s a legit site, but Brazillian so you may need google translate if you want more than the basic info. There’s a warning if the keys are region locked, most are global keys and they sometimes have the best price on games.
Planning to get Metal Gear Solid V–I haven’t played anything in the series since I played Metal Gear as a tyke, but it looks like stupid fun (the part where you can choose a casette of Final Countdown e.g. before invading a base is inspired), and I could use some stupid fun.
Dammit. I meant to buy Metal Gear Solid V the game, but I accidentally bought Metal Gear Solid V the movie. I’m about two hours into it, and I think there’ve been about 3 minutes of gameplay so far. It sure is a pretty movie, though!
I think I played an hour or two of MSG V and then asked on another forum “Uh, is there a game here at some point?” Had a couple sneering “Have you ever played a MGS [or Kojima] game before?” which I took to be an indication that it wasn’t going to get better and gave it up. Amusingly, these were from fans of the game who were just insulted that I didn’t realize the brilliance of a Hideo Kojima video game.
Heh. It turns out that I got into the game this morning when I fired it up. So far the gameplay isn’t doing a ton for me: sneaking around and shooting mooks, then going into crazy dodge-and-shoot play when the jig is up. But it’s got some great horse-riding in it, and maybe the game play will get better.
I’m switching between it and Oxygen Not Included. The latter game is a lot more stressful and thinky.
Yeah, I did get past all the initial cut scene and into the whole “sneak around the open world and kill dudes” part but it didn’t seem like the plot was going anywhere (hence my question) and the open world stuff wasn’t as fun as other open world shooty/stealth games I’ve played so I wrote it off. Might hook you though; I know a lot of people thought highly of it.
I’d just like to poke my head in to speak up on behalf of Hideo Kojima. Kojima is one of those old school crazy game designers who actually really like experimenting with the form. He doesn’t want to be making Metal Gear Solid V any more than you want to be “playing” it. The first one made a boatload of money for Konami, and they more or less chained him to a desk for sequels after that. And this guy wants to make WEIRD S**T. He doesn’t want to make Metal Gear sequels. He’s finally bailed on Konami for reasons…probably related to this.
I mean, check out the trails for this Death Stranding thing. Maybe it’s not gonna be good, but he’s back to doing strange stuff.
