The Steam Summer Sale has begun. Lots of PC games, super cheap. See all the deals right here.

Today's big deals include Dead Rising 3 ($37.50), Far Cry 3 ($7.50), and The Witcher 2 ($3.50). There's also an insane new Summer Adventure program that will let you earn free things as you buy games and craft badges on Steam.

Before you pull out your credit card, remember two important things:

1) Your backlog is already huge.

2) It's worth waiting for daily deals.

Tireless Kotaku Moneysaver maestro Shane Roberts will be helping round up the best deals every day, so keep an eye on Kotaku as you try to survive the next 11 days of sales.
