The Steam Summer Sale Thread of 2011 - My god. It's full of games.
PLEASE READ FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT - Many games will be having further discounts when they are included as part of a daily deal. If you want a game, it is highly recommended that you wait until the last day(s) so that you can attain the best possible sale. If the game you want does not go on a further sale by that point, then is the time to buy it. This avoids depressing yourself on further missed savings!
This thread is designed to be updated with daily happenings and a general list of desirable discounted games. It also removes clutter from the PC Bargains thread. The discussion of games on sale is encouraged. Let's help everyone, eh?
The sale lasts from June 30th to July 10th and there will be daily deals on each. Recommended use of Ctrl+F on each page to find if a game you're interested in is being talked about.
For a very comprehensive and up-to-date list of the games on general sale, please use SavyGamer.
From page 24 in particular, there are discussions of good games that are on sale, but perhaps haven't been daily'd. Peruse and discover the varied tastes of RPS!..also, buy VVVVVV.
Daily Deals and Achievements - 10th July - As today is the last day of the sale, any games you want that are on sale, now is the time to get them!
Active as of 6pm GMT. Unless stated, all DLC will also be discounted the same amount.

By completing special achievements, you can earn special in-game goodies. These seem to be done daily, but are not necessarily the daily deals. Anthile has posted a thread where users can help each other with the daily achievements. Take a gander!
As today is the final day of the sale, there are no new daily achievements. This is, however, your last opportunity to get as many as possible!
Completing these achievements also enters you into a prize draw, where 100 winners receive the top 10 games on their wishlist. Please check Anthile's thread (above) for details on the achievements.
Please leave any noteworthy sales in posts. They will (eventually) be updated to this post.

I'm sure there will be a load of daily deals like usual. Best not to buy anything until the end of the sale unless it's a daily deal, rather than buying something for £15 now when it might be £10 in a few days.

Recettear for $5 again (75% off). If you don't buy it, I'm going to have to hurt you.
Aaaaand Steam seems to be quite overloaded at the moment. Heh.

VVVVVV 50% off. So far the only thing that's piqued my interest
Edit: the store is "working" again, but Valve is doing a terrible job highlighting this sale.

I was thinking about Unreal 2004 but for a couple of pound more I could get it off GOG. So gonna wait and hope King's Bounty: Platinum Edition comes up in a daily sale or something

These daily achievements are a very smart trick to get me to buy games I had no intention of buying.
They are really smart, these Valve marketing guys!
/Bit.Trip.BEAT might be not so bad à £1.75...

Dear sirs, would someone be so kind as to buy the Borderlands GOTY in USD and gift it to me? It's more than twice as costly for us EUropeans and you surely won't stand such injustice!
I will reimburse you generously via Paypal.
Please PM me. Thank you.

More stuff worth buying today:
The Longest Journey + Dreamfall -75%

I do have a question regarding Hearts of Iron 2. I own the Complete collection but I heard that Darkest Hour is basically the original game + better AI. Is it true? Since DH is on sale and I very much intend to finally dive into the HoI games, I'd like to get the best version.

Err... Anyone else having trouble with the "Camp Activities"? I just completed Vamos a la playa in Swords & Soldiers HD (...twice) and I did not receive the achievement or the ticket. Kind of annoyed.
