Steam Summer Sale 2018 Recommendations


Hello, my loves! So when I did my “Top Ten Video Games of All-Time” post earlier this year, you all seemed to really enjoy! So, I couldn’t resist recommending you some more of my favorite games while they are on sale for the Steam Summer Sale! Also, this sale ends Thursday, July 5th at 10AM Pacific Time! 🚀

Every year, Steam has two huge sales where you can get games so dang cheap! This is especially helpful to PC gamers, like myself. All ten of these games I own and love (and have spent way more money purchasing them than what this sale is selling them for)! 💻


Also, please feel free to add me on Steam! I’ll be honest, Dota makes me get so many random friend requests, so I have a big list of pending people. So, just make sure you let me know in the comments what your user name is! Okay, on to the games! And click on each title to see some gameplay of every game, and to learn a little bit more about them before buying! 👾


➽ Stardew Valley – 20% off: $11.99
I play this every Thursday night with my best friend, and it hasn’t gotten old… ever. This is a such a masterpiece of a game, and I think there is something to love for everyone, honestly.


➽ Sid Meier’s Civilization VI – 60% off: $23.99
Also, a ton of Civ DLC is on sale, too! Civ is a franchise that me and my friends have spent so much time playing. I will always have a soft spot for it, and I will always buy whatever they keep coming out with.


➽ The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition – 60% off: $19.99
Not only is this an amazing game that I love with my whole heart, this bundle includes the Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine expansions AND any other addition content that’s been released: side quests, weapons, armor, Gwent cards, and more!


➽ Super Meat Boy – 90% off: $1.49
Forever and always one of my favorite platformers of all time. And it holds up so damn well. Completely recommend! And, like, its honestly a dollar.


➽ Banished – 60% off: $6.79
This is the best city builder I’ve ever played in my entire life. If I could recommend one under-hyped game of all time, it would always be Banished. Masterpiece.


➽ Transistor – 75% off: $4.99
But if I could only recommend one game from this sale? It would always be Transistor. My favorite Steam game of all time, and I wish I could put it in the hands of all of my friends. Also, the soundtrack is genius and perfection and worth every penny, too! And have you seen my Steam profile? I obviously love this game an unhealthy amount.


➽ Tropico 4 – 80% off: $2.99
Yes, you read that right, FOUR! I have played five, too, but four will always be the one that stole my heart. I love this game so much, that my brother jokingly calls me El Presidente whenever someone brings the franchise up!


➽ HunieCam Studio – 75% off: $1.74
First off, you all know I like sexy things. Second off, this resource management game is honest to God so fun! Look at my Steam profile above. That diamond penis? From this game. Best badge ever!


➽ Child of Light – 66% off: $5.09
This game is one of the most beautiful works of art that I’ve ever experienced. The story is so perfect, the dialogue makes me feel every emotion, and the game is so very fun.


➽ DARK SOULS III – 75% off: $14.99
The entire franchise and tons of bundles are on sale, but this series of games is a tier above so many games out there. Honest to God, this is a masterpiece. There is a reason why this wins so many awards, and that’s because it’s so very deserving.

Okay, loves! I hope this post helps you find a new game or two! Again, I love all of these games, companies, and franchises, with my whole heart! I’ve tried to be good this year and not spend too much money! But the games I’m planning to purchase during this sale are: Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, Lethis – Path of Progress, Hollow Knight, Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked, and Town of Salem – The Coven! But please, recommend me more before the sale ends! Happy gaming and happy reading, always! 👾📚

  1. OH MY GOD TOWN OF SALEM COVEN is so fun! Let me know if you get it because I will want to play with you!

    One of my fave pc games is Sunless Sea, and it’s 60% off. It is one of the best story-driven games I have ever played and it is so atmospheric.

    I sent your a friend request, kalventure on Steam.

      1. YAY and I am so hyped! I haven’t played ToS for awhile, but was playing it pretty religiously last year.

        I finally nabbed West of Loathing today (home sick from work) and just played it for 4.5 hours straight. This game is such a hilarious gift, and I cannot wait to dive back into it after (trying) to finish my Ace of Shades review! xoxo

    1. I love YOU more! And… you are such a gamer! You just need… to play with me! Muhahaha! LMAOOO! You know my pervy ass was going to put a pervy game on the list! Hahaha! But I high key think you’d love it AND Stardew Valley! 💗xx


  3. Witcher 3 is just a stunning game! And I admit to being hooked on Stardew Valley for a while. I may have to log in. I do not think we have Child of Light! Lately I have had the itch to return to WoW 😂😂😂 But since it is a total time and life sink and my vertigo is such an issue.. I will behave. Sticking to our consoles for now and dungeon crawlers. Everything else makes me sick within 15 minutes. Part of me wishes they would have done the brain surgery 😭 I will never stop being a gamer at heart! And I think you are the best human being 💖😘

    1. Me and my friends having been playing SDV multiplayer beta every Thursday, and I swear to god it is the highlight of my week, every week! AND GIRL, ADD ME TO BATTLENET: I am such a blizzard fangirl! But I totally understand with vertigo. And I’m sorry, love. I wish I could take it away! And I’m here to game with you always, even if it’s just Heartstone! (And you will forever and always be a gamer, babe!) 💗xx


      1. If and when I ever feel well enough to get back on battlenet, consider yourself added Pelvic Bones 😂 I have not been on in over a year due to this brain lesion. I think I still have an authenticator attached to my account 😂 but where is it? So bad. I suppose I could do Heartstone. I handed down my pc to my son after I became ill. But I am thinking about asking for a new laptop this Christmas 😘💖

      2. I WAS YOUNG AND (more) CRINGEY (that I am now), OKAY? Hahaha! And I’m free and ready when you! While wishing you all the health and love in the world, Dani! ❤ xx


  4. I am so planning on grabbing Civ 6 this weekend! Been wanting to play it for a while. Several other games that I need to grab too but we will see. Valve adding the whole feature where you can tell how much money you have ever spent on Steam is not helping lol

  5. I completely forgot about the Steam sale. I should have had the boyfriend check it out and see if there was anything I would enjoy playing. I’m pretty curious about Dark Souls. Might have to check that out!

    Excellent post, as always, my friend! ❤

      1. Of course! ❤ Hopefully, with my new job, I can save up enough to get a gaming laptop. The boyfriend really wants me to play WoW with him. lol.

  6. Oooh, I think I need to add Transistor and child of light to my to play list. They look interesting and pretty! I haven’t played The Witcher very tempted by it, but I’ve already bought so many games in the sale. ;-;

  7. Melanie, you speak to my nerdy, gamer soul! ❤️ Transistor is so good (I have to go back and play through it again!) and so is The Witcher 3! Always here for a fun time with Civ, which reminds me I should check to see if I have Civ VI! I still need to play Child of Light though! Also, have you checked out Monster Prom? It’s hilarious, romantic, and just an all around fun time! I think you might like it!

    1. Awh, my heart, sweetheart! I love you so very much and we should totally play a Thursday Civ game sometime…. even if they go SO long! Hahaha! And i need to check out Monster Prom! 💛xx

      1. Yes we should! I haven’t played Civ in a while, but I’m so down for a game! I think the last time I played I was on the verge of two wars without even trying. And even if they do run long, I’m so up for it! It will be fun, amazing, and just a great time! Yes you should! They allow you to choose your pronoun and customize your name making it more open for trans video gamers and nonbinary gamers. Plus, the dialog, you will fall over laughing! ❤️
