The weather outside is frightful, but gaming is so delightful, and since we've no place to go, let us save, let us save, let us save! Okay, so that last part doesn't exactly rhyme, but botched Christmas carols aside, now is a great time to barricade yourself indoors for some PC gaming, and Steam wants to help you do that. The annual Steam Holiday Sale has now begun, giving you an opportunity to save big (and probably end up spending more than you anticipated).
Steam's sale runs until Saturday, January 5, 2013. From now until then, you'll find deep discounts on popular titles, daily deals, flash sales, and community choice voting on which deal you'd like Steam to offer.
These are mostly big discounts, many in the neighborhood of 75 percent off, such as the original Borderlands, The Hitman Collection, and Batman: Arkham City, to name just a few. Borderlands 2 can be found for half off, and so can Doom 3.
Word of warning: the sales are addicting, and though you'll end up saving a fortune, it's easy to spend a king's ransom. Don't forget to set aside a few coins for rent.
