The Steam summer sale is in full blaze. For a while it even blazed so hot that the servers went on fire and all the price stickers peeled off the games.

We’ve rounded up some recommendations – both general tips and some newly added staff choices.

Best PC gaming deals of the week

Another week has gone by and with it came the news of Destiny 2, a Witcher TV show and a whole stack of new gaming deals to check out. Conveniently enough, I’m here to take a closer look at that last thing and it’s about the only thing that’s keeping me from playing more Prey. Without further hesitation, let’s go ahead and check out what’s on offer this week, shall we?

As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started.

Steam Game Charts: Cause For Celebration

Change! Actual change! Other than, y’know, the three games that are here every single week, every single week I have to include them, every single week, they’re there, undying, changing, every single week, every single week.

Have You Played…Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Just to get this one out of the way early, I love Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen [official site]. I can’t think of another game I was more excited to see liberated from its tortured existence on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. But performance issues aside, Dragon’s Dogma was the kind of experiment I wish more companies would be willing to take—and from Capcom of all places!

Wot I Think: Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

Originally released on PS3/Xbox 360 back in 2012 and then updated to Dark Arisen in 2013, Dragon’s Dogma [official site] is a tough game to pigeon-hole. It’s a bit Dark Souls, a bit The Witcher, a bit Skyrim, and a bit Shadow of the Colossus. But is it a bit good, especially coming to us after a generational upgrade? Here’s Wot I Think.

Every Dogma Has Its Day: Dragon’s Dogma Out Jan 15th

When I watch trailers for Dragon’s Dogma [official site], I’m not quite sure what I’m all excited about. It looks like a hacky and slashy RPG with some big ol’ monsters and a full party system, and that’s fine, but what makes it stand out from the pack? It’s the voices of friends who played the console release that elevate it rather than anything in the videos – someone once told me that Dragon’s Dogma is like a party-based Dark Souls and I was sold there and then.

And that’s why I’m excited that this latest trailer reveals that the game comes to PC on January 15th, even though the trailer itself isn’t all that exciting.

Dragon’s Dogma Trailer Clambers Up A Cyclops

Capcom’s party-based action-RPG Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen [official site] sounds great, from what I’ve heard, a weird new surprise from a company who spend too long mining former glories. I’m sold simply on the idea of you and your AI pals clambering up big beasties to stab soft spots, really. I was writing for a multiplatform site when Dragon’s Dogma first came out on consoles, so I’ve seen a whole lot of it, but maybe you haven’t? Here, watch this new video that’s somewhere between an introduction and a collection of tips:
