Steam Summer Sale 2012 – Day 9 Deals


Day nine of the Steam Summer Sale has arrived. Still some repeats, but finally also some games I’ve personally been holding out for. Overnight Flash sales added Botanicula and a bundle of the first two Max Payne games (I’ve been wanting a refresher on these since starting the new third installment) to my collection, and I immediately jumped on the current Flash sale for Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Now the wait continues for A Valley Without Wind, The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, and Hack, Slash, Loot, along with a few others (Rune Classic and Aquaria sure would be nice).
