It's day seven of Steam's Summer Sale and seven rhymes in heaven—which is where you'll be if you spot a game or two you want and haven't pulled the trigger on just yet. (Yeah, I'm kind of ashamed by that one too; pleasem take your time in recovering from that "sense of humor.") Now that you're all better now, let's return to the topic of Steam and what fancy schmancy games they have on sale as part of today's daily deal.
There are some repeats—which is to be expected—but I'm quite happy with the variety on this seventh day of sales and I'm especially happy to see Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, Age of Empires Online, and the awesome Indie Bundle VII (that is, if you haven't bought all the games included already).
I will admit I haven't played Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, but I have played and loved the original Sins of a Solar Empire and I've heard mostly great things about Rebellion. The Sins of a Solar Empire franchise may be a bit much for some, but hardcore RTS fans will find a lot to love in the series. And, if you haven't played a single Stardock game, the Stardock Collection is an even better deal at 50% off and includes Rebellion along with Stardock's other games (obviously).
Age of Empires Online is a game I fell in love with when it first came out and then I stopped for no real reason. I'm looking to get back into it and now seems to be a great time for new players as the game has now adopted a true free-to-play system, so there's no upfront cost to try it out and no requirement to ever pay; though, not paying means a much slower progression in terms of unlocking new civilizations/etc. Regardless of your thought on free-to-play games, I highly recommend at least giving Age of Empires Online a try.
Finally, the Indie Bundle VII is a bundle I love and though I can't get anything out of it since I own every game included, it's a damn good deal for those who own none of them. The games included are Avadon: The Black Fortress, Dungeons of Dredmor, Q.U.B.E., Vessel, and Zombie Driver. It's a fine selection overall, but I really love Dungeons of Dredmor and if you still haven't played it, well, I wish I had the power to throw you into a dungeon of my own.
