As most of you were probably aware of (or just became aware of), the annual Steam sale that has been going on for the past two weeks is coming to a close. Many great deals occurred during this two week period (Deus Ex, the F.E.A.R. series, TF2 [finally got it], Hitman series, Half-life series, etc.) and I must say that I personally was impressed with the amount of awesome games that went on sale (and how much they went on sale for; most of them were around 60-90% off).
Right now, the last day of the sale is going on, so if you didn’t get a chance to participate in this sale, you have until 10:00 AM PST to get on it! There are some awesome deals going on (Amnesia and the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series are a must if you have the funds), so don’t miss out!
Did anyone else capitalize on these deals and if so, what games did you end up getting? Out of your purchases (for this sale or in the past), which games would you recommend that others try out?
As I mentioned earlier, Amnesia and TF2 have been my best purchases so far. Most people know why TF2 is a great purchase, but Amnesia: the Dark Descent is what really caught my eye. The game is about as scary as the reviews (both user and professional) give it, especially when you follow the game devs’ recommendations (headphones and completely dark room to play in). I’m a few hours into the game and I start to breathe heavy because the game’s atmosphere and soundtrack is dark and creepy (no, not like your Uncle Steve creepy).
Anyway, Happy New Year, everyone and to a bright future for our child slaves working in space.
