Ready to drop some serious cash? Okay, go! Jump onto Steam for the Steam Summer Sale, which is going on now. It's that time of year again, where you make a monetary sacrifice to Lord Gaben in return for a selection of new titles you can add to your collection. This year's Sacrifice to Gaben Festival is going on from today, June 21 through July 5.

There are several discounts going on right now if you can get Steam to load, which seems a bit difficult right now, including discounts on the Fallout series, West of Loathing, Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, Stardock's game portfolio, and more.

In addition to the deals themselves, there's a new browser game you can play called Saliens. In the game, you'll defend your "Salien's" Deal-tection Station to rack up points while games are located in the Steam Store. Your Salien will take you to a planet where you'll automatically be entered to win one of its respective rewards. The longer your Salien stays on a planet, the better chance you have of winning a certain game, and you can also snap up trading cards.

The entire time you're hanging out on an active planet, you'll be entered in the drawing to win a game, with a list of which planet is giving away each game found here. There will be various different planets changing out as the sale goes on.

But you know what isn't a game? Spending cash. Go ahead, make it rain on that Steam page. You know you've been waiting for this. You were born to do it.
