The Steam Summer Sale has begun, and wallets everywhere are crying out in fear.

If you’ve been putting off buying another game on Steam until the Summer Sale kicks off, your time has come. We’ve known this sale was coming since PayPal leaked the date. From today through 1 PM ET July 4, you can get deals all over the Steam store.

These are typically the two best weeks of the year to be a PC gamer, as you can get a ton of great games for anywhere from 15 to 90 percent off. However, there will not be any flash sales or specials aside from the deals that are available now. There will be featured specials, but the percentages will not change.

Head over to the Steam store and check out all the deals, and try not to send too much money. You’ll thank me later. If you need to see the effect of a Steam sale, just check out this YouTube video from user Clint Beastwood. It’s pretty spot-on.
