"Terrorists" Frustrated By Lack Of Steam Summer Sale Send "Threatening" Video Message To Gabe Newell

My, my. The lack of the traditional end-of-June Steam summer sale certainly has some people riled up, if this video is any indication. While gamers wait out as the early days of July pass on with no sale announcement, some want to take matters into their own hands.


Like these two "threatening" terrorists, claiming they'll kill the man in the video for every day the Steam sale remains elusive. Though, if they wanted to keep in line with sending a scary message to Gabe Newell, they probably shouldn't have wished him a good day. Gabe was all, "Well I was about to feel threatened, but then they told me I should have a good day, and threats do not a good day make!" Killed your own message with one line, terrorists!

In all seriousness, I find this to be a pretty risky move, even in the obvious comedy of it all. But maybe that's cause I'm middle eastern and too paranoid to make terrorists jokes. At least in public.

"threats do not a good day make"

Shouldn't it be" threats don't make a good day" :)

Anyhoo I Have about $40 which would get me like 5-10 games it would have been $60 if not for that DOW2 and Deus Ex sale... Speculating is pointless no one really knows except valve and usually we get those weird updates for special achievements from indie games and I have about 30 of them installed not a single update yet. I'm betting its after the 4th of July, but rumors is it's going to be the 12th . :(

EDIT: Oh Amazon is also on sale Darkness II for $12.00 I was going to buy it then I remembered I purchased all my spending money to my steam wallet O_O
