Steam Sale: Day 9
I have to admit that this one is something that I really don’t know about. Beyond Good and Evil, available for the nice and cheap price of £3.34 (As an aside, I’ve seen it cheaper. As in, 0p cheap. You just had to pay for postage). I wish I had this before now and could talk about it properly but it got 100% in one review, and also I haven’t seen a bad word said against it.
Another that I don’t own (I have run out of games that are on sale that I know), which is Guild Wars. The trilogy is now £20.09, which includes Guild Wars and the 2 expansions. It doesn’t have a subscription so I would probably buy it if I could be bothered to commit to an MMO. However, I would like to argue that it is a brilliant chance to try an MMO if you want to not get locked into a subscription.
- Star Wars: Empire at War, £3.74
This is the Star Wars RTS, which of course I don’t own, because this is Valve’s Summer sale. Not heard anything about it being better than a typical cash in, but it might be.
- Max and the Magic Marker, £3.25
Oh come on! I’m not bothering to write a piece about this.
- Saints Row 2, £2.49
This is a brilliant game. I think it’s better than GTA 4, since it doesn’t even attempt to take itself seriously. It is brilliant and worth it at that price.
- Day of Defeat: Source, £1.49
Another one that I do not know. I think I tried it on a free weekend, but didn’t really take to it. It doesn’t fill that team shooter itch that TF2 scratches so much better.
- The Bionic Commando Pack, £8.74
This is a good day for not knowing anything in the Steam sale. Whoopie. I really have no idea about how good it is.
- Half Life 2, £2.37
Buy. Buy buy now. The greatest scripted experience in recent years, with a brilliant storyline. It’s the same game play every 2 minutes, but the story makes that forgivable.
- Beat Hazard, £1.74
Thanks again Valve. It’s much cheaper than yesterday, so I’d buy it today if you are going to. My money is staying in my pocket though
- Borderlands, £6.79
A game that I really need to finish. Again. A cel shaded shooter, and one that is pretty good fun. The DLC is also 66%, and you can get a four pack for £20.38. It’s very entertaining, and the procedural generation of the guns is very impressive.
