Game with the Dtoid community
Happy Friday everyone!
As many of you already know, the annual Steam Summer Sale is upon us. If you’re like me, you’ve been watching the sales closely, voting every time the chance comes and generally worrying for the state of your wallet/bank account.
Personally, I love sales like this. It allows me the opportunity to purchase games at discounted prices and then never actually get around to installing them or playing them. Wait, that doesn’t sound right. What I meant to say was…no, it was right the first time.
So far I’ve been good, as of writing this (noon Eastern) I haven’t made a single purchase. I completely expect this to change though, before the weekend is over.
How about you, Friday faithful, how many purchases have you made so far? Are there any specific titles you’re waiting for to go on sale? Not a fan of Steam sales? Tell me below!
Now, let’s get to the games!
New to FNF? Read this!Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It’s a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in theforums, where community members sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in thecommunity blogsthanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you’d rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!
