Hey there Geeks, I hope you’re ready for some awesome deals! On day three of the Steam Summer Sale, there are a lot of franchise sales, which means big savings for us on some really great games. Without further adieu, here are my picks for today!
We at The Geekiverse really cannot say enough about how much we really loved these games (Check out Josiah’s review of Season One and Season Two!), and with Season Three just being announced (read here!), this is a great opportunity to pick up some great, story- and decision-driven games on the cheap.
Original Price: $24.99 (each) Sale Price: $6.24 (each)
Saints Row took the formula that Grand Theft Auto made popular and turned it on its head by adding several layers of absurd humor and ridiculous action. There’s no way around it–these games are just downright fun. Plus, what other games allow you to give somebody a beatdown with a…um…personal massage apparatus…? Warning: not for the easily offended!
Original Price: $14.99 (each) Sale Price: $3.74 (each)
This particular set of deals probably has the best quality-to-dollar ratio. All three main Witcher games are either 50-85% off, and that also includes the separate Witcher Adventure Game. The Witcher one is only $1.49, The Witcher 2 is priced at $2.49, and The Witcher 3 is currently half off at $24.99. If you’ve ever wondered what the deal was with this series, now is the time to jump in!

While The Witcher Franchise deal would get you the best quality-to-dollar ratio, I think this sale gets the award for best quantity-to-dollar award. The Civilization games are notorious for their extremely addicting gameplay. It’s not unusual to sit down to play only to look up four hours later and wonder where the time went. This sale extends to many of the classic Civ games along with the newest entry, Civilization: Beyond Earth.
Original Price: $4.99-$59.99 Sale Price: $1.24-$19.19
Garry’d Mod isn’t as much a game as it is a create-your-own-content sandbox wonderland. With Steam Workshop support, the sky is the limit as you create your own game modes, maps, and etc. The fact that there is no story or specific way to play might turn some gamers off, but at this price, there’s no going wrong.
Original Price: $9.99 Sale Price: $2.49
That wraps it up for today. What deals are you looking to buy? What games should Steam discount next? Do you even have any money left to buy them if they did? Let us know in the comments! See you tomorrow for more of our continuing coverage!
