Today may be Thanksgiving, but over in Steamsville, it’s already Christmas. So, what’s under the tree? Damn near everything. For the next five days, Steam will be discounting different selections of games every 24 hours. So maybe the whole thing’s actually more like Hanukah, but we digress…
These aren’t just dusty old re-gifted games either. They’re fresh off the virtual shelf. For instance, right now, Batman: Arkham Asylum’s going for $25, and a whole mess of THQ games – including Red Faction: Guerrilla, Saints Row 2, and Dawn of War II – have been bundled together for only $49.99! But wait, there’s more! Dragon Age, Champions Online, Grid, Far Cry 2, and a LucasArts bundle have all dropped into impulse purchase territory, and with that kind of Death Star-sized tractor beam tugging at your wallet, how can you refuse?
You can’t – because even shop-lifting rarely produces prices this low. Penny-pinchers, it’s finally time to give your fingers a break. On the menu are your dreams, and it’s Steam’s treat.
Just a warning, though, Gabe Newell. You’re not the first somewhat rotund man to be extremely generous around December. Not that we’re complaining, but you’re stepping into Santa territory, and we hear jolly old Saint Nick has quite the legal team.
