We're into the last 24 hours of Steam's Summer Sale, so this is the last roundup for the year! You can pick up Assassins Creed Brotherhood for £14.99, which is tied with a number of other stores at the moment for the title of best price, however for an additional £2 you can get hold of Assassin's Creed Director's Cut Edition, and Assassin's Creed 2 Deluxe Edition, which isn't bad particularly if you've not played any of the games before. Getting hold of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 in the sales'll save you over £5, or you could purchase a pack that includes the game, Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam, and a special upgrade pack for £9.99. Borderlands GOTY Edition has dropped down in price to the point where it'll save you almost £5.50 on the next best offer, and you can also snatch up a DLC pack that includes four add ons for £4.74, which is just over £1 for each bit of additional content. I love roaming around the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas and it's crammed full of content, so you should definitely pick it up if you've not got a copy already, plus you'll save yourself almost £4 and you can get hold of both add ons, Dead Money and Honest Hearts, for £2.24 each. If you like a lot of over the top destruction then you'll probably enjoy Just Cause 2 and you'll be able to smile in the knowledge that you're saving £1.50, however if you're not content with the sequel you can get hold of the original game for £1.99 and there are loads of weapons and vehicle packs for Just Cause 2 that are selling for less than 50p each!

Drifting into the world of Warhammer 40,000 might well be your thing, if so you can save almost £7 when you buy Dawn Of War II: Retribution. Magicka's a fairly amusing little game and it's probably worth a punt when you can save yourself over £4. Tackling the various puzzle rooms in Portal 2 can be challenging at times and it provides a nice bit of variety to simply shooting everything in sight, oh yeah, it's also a phenomenally good game that you won't be disappointed with and you'll save almost £2 on the next best offer. Finally, grabbing The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings'll make you a saving of just over £1.50. All you need to do now is make your purchases by 6 o'clock tomorrow evening when the sale draws to a close.

Most of the games in the Prince Of Persia series are great fun seeing as they let you run and jump around whilst fighting your enemies with swords, throwing a bit of magic around, and solving a puzzle or two, so it's a good job that you can get hold of five of them (Prince Of Persia, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time, Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Prince Of Persia: The Two Thrones, and Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within) for £12.49 in the sales. You can save a fair amount of money if you pick up the Sam & Max games separately, however you'll save over £7 if you pick the three of them up in a pack together. If you're looking for a game that'll scare the living daylights out of you, then you should definitely think about picking up Dead Space 2, although you could always grab a cheap strategy guide as well if you want to eliminate some of the scares, and if you do build up the courage to buy a copy then you'll save almost £10 on the next best offer. Quietly creeping around eliminating targets as Agent 47 is always good for a laugh, then again you could just go storming in through the front door silver ballers blazing, so why not pick up the original game, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, and Hitman: Blood Money for £4.47, that's about £1.50 a game! Also, you can get all of Egosoft's X3 series for £9.99, which has got to be worth a punt if you're at a loose end.

Neverwinter Nights 2 has dropped down to £5.09, which'll save you almost £8 on the next best offer out there. F1 2010 has got to be one of the best racing games I've ever played and it's definitely worth taking a look at whilst you've still got the chance to save over £6. Post Apocalyptic Mayhem lets you drive around in tuned up vehicles that you can use to take out your opponents and if that's your cup of tea, then you should snatch up a copy and save yourself almost £4.50. Supreme Commander 2's a cracking strategy game and if you've got a large portion of time to kill then pick it up, go on, you'll save over £4! Duke Nukem Forever has to be one of the most disappointing games I've played this year, but if you still want to check it out then you'll be able to save £3. Finally, Portal 2's price has been slashed to the point where you'll be saving almost £2 and I can't recommend that you purchase it strongly enough if you've not played it yet.

If you're a fan of creating your own little worlds, then why not grab a copy of The Sims 3 in the sales and save yourself over £10 on the next best offer, or better yet you could pick up The Sims 3 pack, which includes seven separate bits of DLC as well and'll make you a massive saving of over £50! Killing zombies is always good fun, especially when you're doing it as part of a team, which is exactly what you'll be doing if you pick up Left 4 Dead 2, plus you'll save yourself over £6. Left 4 Dead's also on offer at the moment and you buy it in a pack along with the sequel for £5.74, which'll make you a saving of almost £18 in total! Snatching King's Bounty: Armoured Princess'll save you almost £6, however if you spend £2 more you can get two of its expansion pack as well. You can make a saving of just over £4 on The Killing Floor, or you can part with another £1.50 to get a load of character packs in addition to the game. Shooters are always good for wasting a bit of time, or relieving a bit of stress after work, so why not save yourself almost £2.50 on the next best offer and purchase Far Cry 2 from Steam, or you could throw in another £1 and get the original game too.

Swooping around Arkham Asylum as The Dark Knight is still an absolute blast and I find myself going back to it time and time again, so it'll be money well spent if you decide to give it a go and you'll save over £11 on the next best offer. Prototype gives you one or two powers to deal with your enemies and it's definitely worth checking out, particularly when you can save yourself almost £7.50. Finally, if you want something new to do in Grand Theft Auto IV, then why not pick up Episodes From Liberty City, which can save you almost £5 at the moment.

What's better than getting hold of one cheap Need For Speed game? Getting four that's what! Thanks to a nifty little franchise sale at Steam today, you can buy a pack containing Need For Speed: Undercover, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Need For Speed: Shift, and Shift 2 Unleashed, for £24.99, which'll save you £17.36 altogether! I shouldn't have to tell you that getting Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Invisible War for just less than £3 is a bargain, especially when you'll be saving almost £5.50 on each of them, and what better way to get fired up for Deus Ex: Human Revolution than revisiting the first two games in the series. The Guild Wars Trilogy pack contains Guild Wars GOTY Edition, Guild Wars: Factions, and Guild Wars: Nightfall for £12.99, and purchasing this pack is pretty much the equivalent of getting three games for two. Also Guild Wars: Eye Of The North has had its price slashed, which is good if you're planning on picking up as much content as possible. King Arthur: The Role-playing Wargame has been reduced to £2.25, which'll make you a saving of almost £8, however the King Arthur Collection is only £3.75 at the moment, so not only will you still be making a saving you're practically getting all the DLC for free! S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow Of Chernobyl's not a bad little shooter and you can save over £3 by picking it up in the sale, plus you can get hold of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call Of Pripyat and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky at a reduced price as well.

Snatching a copy of Wings Of Prey'll save you almost £6 on the next best offer out there, or you could always run away with a copy of Beat Hazard, which'll save you just over £5. Finally, Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Sid Meiers Civilisation V are both good games to jump into when you want a bit of fun combined with satisfying gameplay, and you'll be able to save around £2 on both.

I'll start off with a deal that'll take you down memory lane thanks to a lovely franchise sale. If you're a first person shooter fan then you've got to get your hands on the Doom Complete pack in the sales because it contains The Ultimate Doom, Final Doom, Doom II, Master levels for Doom II, Doom 3, and Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil, all for a jaw dropping £4.99, which I think you'll agree is pretty damn good. The price reduction on Serious Sam HD isn't bad at all and you can also get hold of Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter and Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter, which have both had their prices slashed too. Grabbing Bionic Commando in the sales'll save you £2 on the next best offer and if you're feeling nostalgic you can get hold of the original NES game as well, which has been updated for the PC. Making a saving of almost £6 on Fallout: New Vegas isn't bad at all because it's packed full of content, and if you want a bit more to keep you going then you've always got the option of buying the Dead Money and Honest Hearts add-on packs for considerably less than usual. The Mount & Blade series' price has had a chunk knocked out of it, which means that you can practically get hold of all three games for the price of one.

Singularity's a great little game, which is very underrated and you should think about checking it out now because you'll make yourself a saving of almost £15 on the next best offer out there. And last but not least, you can snatch up a copy of Trine for £1.69, which'll save you almost £9.

Not only are there some great deals over at Steam today, there are some pretty good franchise sales too! The best of the bunch has got to be the very low £4.99 price tag that's been slapped on Transformers: War For Cybertron, which'll save you a staggering £20 on the next best offer coming in from Play! If you like roaming around open worlds that have a fantasy edge, then you might want to grab Two Worlds II and save yourself over £13. Jon really enjoyed the sniping sections of Sniper: Ghost Warrior, but unfortunately the rest of the game was a bit of a let down, then again if sniping's your thing then you'll probably want to check it out, and it's always nice when you're saving almost £7 in the process. Also, you can save around a fiver on both Defense Grid: The Awakening and Torchlight.

Now we'll move onto the franchise sales. The price drop on Assassins Creed Brotherhood isn't particularly great, however the other games in the series have been marked down as well, and you can grab a pack including Assassins Creed Director's Cut Edition, Assassins Creed 2 Deluxe Edition, and Assassins Creed Brotherhood, for an additional £2, which isn't a bad deal for three great games! Whilst purchasing Arma II in the sales'll save you less than £1, a lot of its DLC has been reduced in price, so you'll be able to keep the game going for a little bit longer. Finally, getting hold of a copy of Tropico 3'll save you over £3 and the expansion pack, Tropico 3: Absolute Power, has also had its price slashed.

Ok here we go again! I'll kick off today's proceedings with Battlefield Bad Company 2 because not only can you save £5, it's also on a franchise sale, so there's cheap DLC for it as well as a special kit upgrade, plus you can get your hands on a cheap strategy guide for the game too. If you're looking to kill your social life, and indeed pretty much every other aspect of your life, then you could always grab Football Manager 2011, which you'll be making a £5 saving on. Picking up Dark Siders and Magicka'll save you about £4 on each. Dropping into an open world and causing a revolution may well be your thing, in which case I'd look into getting Fable 3 becuase you'll be able to save yourself £3. Plants Vs. Zombies has won several awards and it's fairly addictive, so you should be able to get sucked into it whilst saving yourself over £2.50. Finally, whilst the saving on Half Life Episode 2 isn't particularly impressive, the series is on a franchise sale and you can get the whole lot crammed into a complete pack for £6.74, which is a bargain if ever I saw one.

Well, once again there are plenty of good deals knocking about in Steam's Summer Sale today! I'll start off with a package deal; you can get hold of the GTA Classics pack, that's GTA, GTA 2, GTA3, Vice City, and San Andreas, for £4.99, which works out at just under a pound per game! Dungeons is a strategy game that, unsurprisingly, allows you to control the daily operations of a dungeon whilst caring of your heroes, and picking it up in the sale should save you almost £5 on the next best offer. Devil May Cry 4 can be grabbed for £2 cheaper than anywhere else and it's not a bad little hack and slash game, so it should keep you entertained. I'm dropping Braid into the mix here because you can easily find £1.74 rattling around your pocket in loose change and what better way to spend it than by picking up a video game! Finally, you might not make a particularly big saving on Just Cause 2, but it's in a franchise sale, which means you can pick up plenty of cheap DLC for it, and the original game's priced at £1.99!
