While the pun in the title was semi-intended, the fact that this post could be a source of the drain on your wallet is highly intended! Valve corporation’s Steam digital distribution store has begun its holiday sale in earnest. From whole catalogues availing a general discount to everyday sales that you might be familiar with if you have ever shopped in the other digital distribution stores.
A few suggestions are:
Mirror’s Edge: ($4.99 for only four more hours!) A new kind of game where agility and speed must counter guns and aggression. As a Runner of a dystopia where information is monitored rigidly, you must run across the city dodging enemy bullets and more in your quest to deliver a message. At 75% off, this game is a steal.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl: ($1.99 for only four more hours!) A complex mesh of RPG, FPS and survival-horror elements, this dark and brooding game from the Ukrainian developer GSC Game World comes at 90% off. A quick look at a review will tell you just why this game is worth every one of those two dollars!
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut: ($13.59 till January 3rd!) This is one of my favorite RPG games of all time from a beautiful story to gorgeous graphics to a shocking and deeply-influencing finale, this game had it all. Although I would advice anyone to go for a boxed edition ($39.99, I believe) because this is one of those games that must be owned, the digital distribution deal is not bad at all. Buy it, everyone you will not regret it!
Braid: ($2.49 for only four more hours!) Platforming action taken to a whole new level. Add emotive and wonderfully suited music and an emotionally jarring ending and you have one of the best indie games of the year. Trust me on this one and go buy it!
