The PC gaming community has a complicated relationship with the hot summer.
On the one hand, the computer system will protest when you abuse it too much. When you decide to play blockbuster games in the summer, you will have to turn on the air conditioner, if the system does not have a cool cooling system. On the other hand, summer is the tourist season. And if you don’t have yourself a Steam Deck (currently priced at about 30 million VND on the black market in Vietnam), you won’t be able to play video games on the golden sand.
And there is another side that also reflects the ambiguous relationship between PC gamers and summer, that is Steam Summer Sale. The second largest sale of the year continuously saw people withdrawing their “blood donation” cards for the Steam company, which has been rich for many years. Every year I buy Steam games (haven’t even cleared them yet), but that doesn’t stop players from buying them.
For shopping convenience, I’ve picked out a few easy-to-access, value-for-money products so you won’t feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of games on Steam.
In the first half of this “extortion” article, I will follow the statement “no need to be good at English” as closely as possible. The games below allow you to break the island without knowing English, because they have all been localized to the Vietnamese language.
Slay the Spire (66% reduction, only
This is a game that surprised me during sales hunting. When conducting product filtering to find titles with Vietnamese subtitles, I was surprised to see that Slay the Spire has been Vietnameseized (and the price is surprisingly cheap).
This card game has a terrible replay value, when there are more than 350 cards, more than 200 support items for 4 character classes, building countless combos for you to overcome. final boss. If you are a fan of “Spread the fan”, you will not regret 75,000 VND to enjoy Slay the Spire.

At more than 2pm on a Friday afternoon, the number of people playing L4D2 reached 14,508 people. The impressive number shows how attractive the 13-year-old zombie shooting game is still. Since the development phase, Valve has paid attention to every detail, ensuring the greatest possible replay value of L4D2, and I can cite over 14,000 people to prove it.
The fact that the game supports Vietnamese is not too important, when the task of the tables is quite simple: Survive. If you have L4D2 and 3 more friends, your entertaining evenings will go faster than Facebook messages in a busy afternoon.
