It's always tough to decide what games to buy and trying to justify those purchases, especially when there are so many great games on the market. Thankfully you are not alone in this , we are here to be your guide on your quest for greatest Steam purchases you'll never play. So if you spend too much money this Steam summer sale, you can tell your wife it's our fault.
HERES OUR TOP 10:
What else is there to say about Grand Theft Auto V that hasn't already been said? It has a massive open world that lives and breathes, the story feels like it came straight out of Hollywood and the multiplayer is amongst the best in the industry. If you somehow have not played this yet or want to play it on PC now is the time. It now stands at 50% off on the Steam summer sale, which makes it a complete no brainer.
Aside from great prices, the Steam summer sale puts a ton of games in the spotlight. Hotline Miami is an amazing game as is, but when it is 75% off, it really pushes those who haven't witnessed it's neon greatness to buy it. If you enjoy frantic, neon coloured, 80s era gory action, then please do yourself a favour and buy this classic.
One of the greatest things during the Steam summer sale and the winter sale, are the great prices for bundles. Both Civilization 6 and Xcom 2 are fresh games. Aside from being new, they stand on the top of the strategy class, as they are both outstandingly well made games. If you love strategy games or plan to get into them, this bundle is a steal at 65% off.
Summer is great! Hot weather, bbq with friends, beaches and of course the Steam summer sale. If you want to ruin your fun summer, then go grab Dark Soul 3 at 60% off. The boys at From Software are back with another great Souls game, that will pound you into the ground. At the very least, the bosses are great fun, the scenery is top notch and the soundtrack is the best it has ever been.
Need some time off, but your boss won't let you go on vacation? Fret not, because the Steam summer sale is selling one way tickets to Boston at 50% off. Bethesda return with another great entry into the Fallout series, as they send you on another adventure in the radioactive wastelands of Boston. The game has an expansive world to go through, tons of great loot, excellent quests to on and the new settlement system for those who have always wanted to create their own town. Warning though, we would not recommend dropping your children into any Deathclaw pits.
Have you always wondered what it is like to be bald? Maybe a hitman? For some reason the Steam summer sale can hook you up with a great game that does just that for 66% off. Hitman: The complete first season, is another entry into the cult classic series Hitman. It has the difficulty of the older games, promotes creativity and requires concentration. It is simply a must buy.
Call of Duty and Battlefield are not real enough? Counter Strike keeps giving you bad cases? Well go join the army or go to the Steam summer sale on your PC. Steam can provide you with anything, even with the experience of war. As odd as that is, ARMA 3 is 66% off and it is amongst the most realistic war games out there. If you enjoy patience, then this is your game.
Ever wonder what it's like to have your wife chainsaw your hand off ? Ever thought of hitting her with an axe? Well Resident Evil VII is the best domestic abuse simulator out there. Yes, the Steam summer sale can answer you sick questions with 40% off of REVII. Capcom has done a great job, making the player fear the unknown just like the old days.
Shadow of Mordor might be the best game sale during the Steam summer sale. If you love the Lord of the Rings movies, then this is probably in your library already or plan on buying this. If you love the Batman games or action games in general, this is still a great buy especially when it is 80% off. The Nemesis system should sell you on the game alone, as it is amongst the most interesting system ever put in a game.
It's 91% off. Just do it.
If you are a WWE fan or at the very least a pro wrestling fan, you have heard the name Roman Reigns. The pro wrestling community as a whole or at least the majority of it can agree that Vince’s golden boy was a bit of a failed experiment at creating a top guy. He was pushed to the top way too fast and given to much right away before he can create any type of connection with the fans as a singles competitor.
Now since Wrestlemania, after he defeated the Undertaker and probably retired him, Roman has had major heat. Though it has been unclear if he leaned towards face or heel, crowds and fans online have been very vocal about their distaste for him. Now I will admit that he has been having a great feud with Braun Strowman, but he still isn’t the top guy Vince wants him to be. Until now that is. Over the past few episodes of RAW, creative have been building up a Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins team-up. These two guys had a great feud, that made it seem like they were never getting back together. On the 14th of August episode of RAW, the two finally did the Shield hand pose, got a tag title match for Summer Slam and made it clear that part of the band is back together.
In my opinion, it would be dumb for the two of them to lose against Sheamus and Cesaro. To an extent it makes the whole build up meaningless or at least underwhelming. So first off, the two must win the titles and if that occurs then Roman must win too. If Reigns does not win, then the whole Ambrose/Rollins storyline will not feel as complete. As much as we don’t want Reigns with the main title, it would be a great time to put him in the Shield with the title. Depending on if they are heels or faces, he gains more than he loses. If the Shield go heel, Roman can use it to his advantage and help give them more heat. The Samoan can also play the leader role, which has the potential to make fans hate him even more. If the Shield go face, the love for the stable itself and the Ambrose/Rollins duo can give Reigns a pass. What I mean is that, if the three are booked like they were, Reigns will be the quiet muscle who leads and makes the final decision. When playing that role, he almost works as an anti-hero, someone who will go against anything and anyone that goes against his “family”.
These thoughts and opinions might not be popular and this is my first gander at writing about pro wrestling, so please take it easy on me. For those of you reading and yelling at the screen because I want Reigns to win, please remember to take a moment and have fun with the product, let them tell you their story. In conclusion, I will say this once and only once, Roman Reigns must win the universal championship.
Thank you for reading and FUCK THE REVIVAL!
