I feel like it's second half of July. 

I always seem to be away when it happens, which would place it then.

Good.  I thought I was the only one confused by his question mark after thanks, because the initial answer seemed helpful.

The question mark was there because I wasn't sure.  The information was helpful, but without any sort of lead in to it or from it, it felt a little slap-in-the-facey, personally.

I was trying to be helpful myself, and it seemed a curt response, is all.

Probably just misreading tone on my end.

It wasn't a slap in the face at all.  I was simply posting historical facts concerning the past summer sales to help answer the OP's question.

In 2011, the sale started on June 30th.

Both of those dates line up that June 28 should be the commencement of the Steam Summer Sale this year.

(Last Thursday of June).

So... um, brace yourself? slywink

Let's plan this out.  Scraper, you head to RPG's, I'll make a beeline for Strategy.  Bullwinkle, you're on Turn Based Games.

Purge...you...ummm...go ahead and stay in Children's games for now.

I may hide under the table this year instead of flipping it.
