Is that list of Steam games you own but haven't played getting a little shorter?  Well, there is a solution to that as the on of the most dangerous causes of impulse buying starts tomorrow.  Paypal let the cat out of the bag and Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN spotted it, along with the launch time for the UK, 6pm BST on 22 June.  The reason PayPal revealed the start of the sale is because they are offering a bit of a deal in the UK and possibly the rest of the world, if you buy more than £20 of games and pay for it with PayPal you get an extra £5 off.

Perhaps this is a good time to head out of town and spend the weekend somewhere without internet connectivity?

"I assume you young people will be dragging your camping stools to the Steam storefront from 21 June, nursing a thermos of something nutritious and exchanging stories about the time you queued for something else with your fellow queuers."

The way I found out the sale was coming is from the mystery cards being available. They're only available during the major Steam sales, and they have them available a few days before the sale actually starts. You can see it for yourself on your badge page, at the very top http://steamcommunity.com/id/usernamehere/badges/

Steam summer/fall/whatever sales just haven't been very worth it in the last few years. Now that they set a specific price on games and they stay that price the entire duration of the sale - the steep crazy short sales are gone.

I've noticed the same thing, I didn't pick up anything during the last sale because the weekly sales are often better than the supposedly big sales.
