hehe I know tell me about it, but it would just be nice to have Arma 2 anyway so I could try dayz on patch days... lol

So itching to start playing TSW for real, havent been this excited about a new game for a long time.

Thanks mate. I'm interested in Sins of a Solar Empire 2 and the Civ 5 expansion. Might wait and see.

Still no summer sale... This is quite unexpected but maybe that is part of the marketing hype.

Maybe everyone there was bored with the idea and too busy making videos in source filmmaker or playing DOTA2. No "Summer Sale" could actually be a blessing in disguise (to one's wallet and gaming backlog anyway).

The rumour going around now is it's the 12th after a comment from a dev of some indie game.

Although Gabe might be forced to start it sooner

They are most likely busy trying to get the Linux version of Steam launched - that and the Big Picture Mode for HDTVs (make your own Steam console). Both of which I'm really looking forward to (with Unity 4 now supporting native Linux builds too!).

Hopefully with BPM they'll also add more community features.

Why not just get the sale over and done with before launching steam for Linux. So what do we need to get Day Z up and running? Just Arma 2?

I hope there's no sale.

So far these last weeks I've gone for L.A. Noire, 40k: Space Marine, and Dawn of War II + Chaos Theory. I've also been gifted Torchlight, and I should finish Magicka...

I don't need more games!
