Summer sales rule PC download charts
Monday 18 July 2011
Seasonal promotions for PC gamers are prominent in the week's top download charts on July 18, with recent releases
Portal 2 and
The Witcher 2 joined by a host of older titles.
Indie hit Terraria continues to hold its high position on the Steam chart thanks in part to its cheap $10 price made even cheaper during a recent summer blowout.

Home runs for GamersGate, as own-label Hearts of Iron III and Supreme Ruler: Cold War ride high, and Impulse, with space explorer Sins of a Solar Empire on top.
