If you’re a gamer you probably knew this was coming. The Steam Summer Sale is now a bit of a tradition (despite the fact it’s only happened a few times). It was really just a question of when it was coming. Well, that when is now, so prepare to open your wallet or lock it someplace far out of reach.
