Not content with emptying your wallets less than a month ago during the Autumn sale, Steam have unleashed their festive slashing of prices just in time for you to treat yourself at Christmas.
Same rules apply as always; there will be a new selection of 9 special deals every 24 hours from now up until January 3rd, with four games heavily reduced every eight hours under the ‘Flash Sales’ section. The Community Choice also makes a welcome return, with the Steam userbase choosing every eight hours on which one of three selected games will get a price drop.
Rather than reenact the ridiculous coal giveaway from a couple of years ago when one lucky git got EVERY GAME ON STEAM, the bonus for buying games/voting/crafting badges this year are a selection of items to be used in a number of free-to-play games including DOTA 2, Team Fortress 2 and Warframe.
But on to the important stuff – what’s on discount? For today, I would say the top picks are the long awaited PC version of the very fun Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (£13.39 with all the DLC, playable on 9th Jan), the Brave New World DLC for Civilization V at 50% off, and the pick of the bunch is Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite bundled together for £9.
Happy hunting out there!
