Good news, gamers. The Steam Summer Sale has arrived and it's a month early. Our wallet will be poorer for it but it's hard to resist when your favourite games get hefty discounts of about 75% to 80%.

It's day one of the Steam Summer Sale and we have shortlisted the best titles for you consideration. As they say, resistance is futile.

Battle against the harsh environment and creatures in Don't Starve.

Don’t Starve is one of the toughest games we have played and trust us when we say it doesn't get much harder than this.

Just about everything in the game is deadly and it makes no attempt to guide you even in the early stages.

You are on your own and you will have to learn to use science and magic to survive. Good luck!

Don't Starve is 75% off at US$7.49 (RM24.11)

XCOM can be a little daunting at the beginning and the decisions you make early on will come to haunt you later.

Which is probably why it's one of the top games in our list and it is going for $7.49 (RM24.11), or 75% off the normal price.
