Last Day Steam Summer Sale

It’s the last day of the Steam Summer Sale, so if there were any deals they’re back and this is your last chance. Here is a list of games that are on special, and if you don’t own them yet – SHAME ON YOU.

(all prices are AUD. Click to jump to Steam.)

Tomb Raider – this was an amazingly good game, now only $5

The Stick of Truth – It lived up to the hype, now $37

XCOM: Enemy Unknown – One of the greatest games ever made for $13. Steam is crazy.

Civ V – the crowning jewel of the Civ series… and that’s saying a lot. $13.50

State of Decay – An amazingly fun, and unique, take a zombie apocalypse. It is a bit rough here and there, but for $5 it’s a bargin.

Banished – An extremely fun and challenging city builder. Nothing like starving a fledging village of outcasts during the winter! $10

Payday 2 – I’ve been getting a LOT of mileage out of this game. Get a crew together for an fantastic co-op experience that has great theme, depth, and RPG-like elements. You’ll get many hrs for your $6

Stanley Parable – I’m not going to try and explain this one… but for $6 you really should try it to see what all the fuss is about.

Batman: Arkham Origins – It was missing a little something-something from the other Arkham games, but it was still worth sinking 22 hrs into. $7.50

Dragon Age: Origins – A good RPG, you’ve probably heard of it. I go against the grain and claim the second was better. I mostly suggest this one now, because the upcoming Inquisitions is looking really good so for $7.50 you could catch up on the “story so far.”

Wolfenstein: The New Order – Just a straight up fun FPS. Captured “Wolfenstein with modern computing technology” really well. A-grade fun here, boys! $40 (expensive, I know, but that IS 50% off.)

Portal 2 – Who would have thought they could improve on the original? Well they did! Play it now. With a friend is a good option too. $5

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare – a standard multiplayer FPS with a easy-to-use-hard-to-master melee system. Plenty of fun to be had here for $5.

Another Day Another Deal (STEAM!)

Today on special we have…

Batman Arkham City: Look, if you haven’t played this yet – what the hell is wrong with you? Get it now while it’s 75% off. That’s so criminal that Batman… something-something justice joke.

And… that’s all I can recommend with a clear conscience. Look, Mount & Blade is good, and at less that 5 bucks a great bargin, but it’s a massive time-sink and is certainly not for everyone. Deus Ex everyone else loved, but I thought was middling-to-good at best… having said that at $3.50 even a middling game is a steal. Bastion is less than $3 right now, and it’s a game that has been raved about. I played it for an hour or two. It was definitely different and interesting, but couldn’t compete with all the other games I want to play.

Gunpoint is brand new, so only 10% off. It’s an indie game I’m somewhat interested in, so I thought I’d mention it. Since it has to compete with the rest of the Steam sales I’m going to pass on it this time.

 

Better luck tomorrow, Steam!
