Steam Sale: Day 8
Only one bargain for you today. It looks like I’m getting to the end of the list, but there must be some more. Any suggestions will of course be taken. They may even get listened to. This bargain is Beat Hazard, which is now £3.49. I didn’t really enjoy the demo. I prefered Audiosurf, but it is worth a punt at that price I think.
Today’s Specials are:
- Titan Quest Gold, £2.49
This has been in my steam games list for a long time, since it was part of THQ pack but it wasn’t on the top of my list of stuff to play urgently. It seems like another Diablo clone. Reviews were mixed, and I can’t give you a personal impression.
- Madballs in Babo: Invasion, £1.39
What the? Valve, you are now taking the piss. Looks like an arcade style shooter where you are a ball. You know, because that’s the logical thing right?
- Tropico 3, £4.99
Tropico looks interesting but I don’t know whether I will be buying it, even at this price. Its basically a big version of Civilization, except you just run one island.
- Bioshock, £3.49
If you don’t have this, then first you should be shot. Then, after surviving said shot, forced to buy at this price. I bought when it was released and loved the whole world, and the story behind it. The twist at the end (The actual end, not the stupid bit they added on afterwards) is brutal and no other game has come close to invoking that except maybe Episode 2.
- GTA: San Andreas, £2.49
It is bigger than Vice City, but I can’t deal with it. The amount of swearing and stereotyping is just damn racist. I would rather buy Vice City than this, but if you haven’t got that then this might do you, but only if you can deal with the stereotypical “I iz a black gangsta” twaddle that is shown throughout.
- Thief: Deadly Shadows, £2.09
Buy it. Seriously, stop what you are doing and buy it. Even if you already have a disk copy, buy another for Steam. Basically you go into houses and steal things, and it has the greatest level ever created in it. As in, people still talk about that one level to this day.
- Dragon Age, 40% off
This is another that I really need to sit down and play. The biggest world ever created and I’ve never seen so many people call it one of the greatest games in existence. You can just get the original for £12, which is a damn good price for a game with at least 80 hours in it.
- The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, £1.99
This looks interesting. A combination of puzzle solving where you can use time travel to your advantage. And the previous things you did will still happen, leading to all sorts of quantum mischief. It was already cheap, but this is too good to pass up.
- Star Wars Galaxies, £3.74
The official Star Wars MMO. As you know, I don’t do the MMO things. This comes with a whole load of bonus loot and other stuff so it could be worth it. Of course, you need to subscribe to it so that 30 day free playtime might be good to see if it is worth it.
