Please take your money now and throw it at your computer.

I have no idea what is on sale, though, since Steam's shop page is currently totally overrun, but it seems Bioshock Infinite is among it.

I think the Mac version is still in a testing phase, but it's already listed in the Steam database (cf. the Bioshock Infinite thread).

Not officially, but Mac and Windows version share a single database entry. Seems like a good sign.

Bioshock Infinite is showing up in Steam list (library) for Mac. But It is not downloadable.

OK, got BioShock Infinite now. It's also showing up in my Mac games list. I'm pretty sure SteamPlay is a safe bet. :clapping:

Not to be outdone, Amazon is stepping up with their own competing sale: http://www.amazon.co...ocId=1000716161

For an additional discount use the coupon code here: http://dealnews.com/...off/787653.html

I haven't figured out a way to filter the list by platform, unfortunately. But some deals to be had, possibly a lot of overlap with Steam's sale.

Hahaha I hear you. I'm holding my urge on Metro 2033 knowing that its gotta drop even more, and then I'm watching the flash sales like a hawk, and voting on the others. Sadly the votes so far have failed to go my way.

Ah, summer sales first at GOG and now Steam, no doubt MGS too - is there any wonder my backlog of games never seams to get any shorter?

You know... MGS already had its Summer Sizzle sale... but you never heard of it. Why? Because somehow, our marketting guys have been doing DICK SQUAT lately.

First time I've paid attention to the Steam summer sale. The moment I loaded the page my credit card inexplicably teleported from my wallet to my hand and I now own:

Civ V Gold
Darksiders 2
Dark Souls
Bastion
Faster Than Light

I've never built myself a gaming backlog before. Strong magic, this is.

Added Heroes 6 Gold and the Portal Bundle. I might have to stop looking now. I've got almost everything that I'd been waiting on sales for, plus another four more that are quasi-impulse buys (all games that I had some measure of interest in, but hadn't yet decided to concretely list as sale targets). I'm now starting to be tempted by another level beyond that, which is games that that I hadn't remotely decided to buy but have vaguely heard of and would play if they were put right in front of me. Dangerous...I feel like it will take me the remainder of 2013 at least to properly enjoy everything I've already grabbed.

I hear that. I've already snagged three AAA titles which each has the potential to eat up much of my free time (what little I have these days).
