Steam summer sales are here!

Hold onto your wallets: the Steam summer sales are here with more stupidly good deals! Every day they have huge numbers of ridiculous deals, with 75% off (and often more) being common.

I, for example, picked up the entire GTA collection for £4.99 last year – an incredible price considering GTA 4 on its own is about 20 quid. 
Publisher packs, including every one of a certain publisher’s games at a crazy discount, are available, as well as several bundles (indie bundles, franchise bundles, etc).
Drop by the store at each day to check out the deals – this is like Christmas for gamers…



TIGSource, or The Independent Gaming Source, is a site dedicated to indie games and all aspects of their development. The site is reasonably good, but it’s the forums ast that really excel – they are quite simply the best gamedev and game discussion forums out there. You can ask any question and get excellent responses, there is a wealth of information (including tutorials) on every aspect of gamedev from physics engines to character writing. There are some art threads featuring the incredible work of some of the best game developers out there, and one particularly entertaining “Beautiful fails” thread here.
