Is Your Wallet Empty After Steam's Summer Sale?

Another week, another round of gaming deals. That is, if Steam's Summer Sale hasn't drained your wallet by now.

Now that the Steam Summer Sale's ended, an emboldened GameStop is venturing forth with its own Summer Sale. So far we haven't seen anything mindblowing, but there will be new offers every day. The highlight today is a 70% savings on Sleeping Dogs, bringing the title bundled with all its DLC down to $16.49. The Skyrim PC download isn't cheapest ever but still falls to a respectable $20.99, while the Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition download is 75% off its usual price, typing the lowest we've seen.

Paradox's latest published title Teleglitch releases tomorrow. It's a retro-looking rougelike top-down shooter priced at $12.99 everywhere.... well, almost everywhere. GameFly for some reason is pricing the title at $9.99 - a full 25% less. On top of that, there's a 20% off coupon code to drop the price down to $7.99. If you order before the July 24th release date, you'll get the soundtrack and 8 exclusive weapons/utilities.

From the creators of The Book of Unwritten Tales comes The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief, released just today. It's a point-and-click adventure game set in 1960s Europe with decent reviews. Steam and just about everywhere else has it for $22.49, but Green Man Gaming gives you a coupon code to discount further to $18.

Today GameFly began a new "Midweek Madness" sale on several classic PC titles. Games like Empire Earth, SimCity 4, and Rome: Total War are all 75% off. Better still, you can use a 20% off coupon code to drop the prices even further.

Feel free to ignore this entire post if you need to recover and brace yourself for the Autumn / Winter / Never-ending-stop-hurting-the-wallet Sale.
