EB Games Has Better Deals On Some PC Titles Than Steam

It’s not often that a brick-and-mortar retailer captures your attention in the middle of a gargantuan Steam sale, but that’s how the tide has gone in the last few years. The sales just aren’t as good any more — and the fact that Australians still get slugged in US dollars makes it even less enticing.

But that’s the opportunity EB are taking up right now, with a end of financial year sale. There’s plenty of games that priced at surprisingly reasonable levels.


People Searching For A Steam Summer Sale ARG Are Getting Desperate

For a little while, every major Steam Sale came with a meta game attached. Over the years, they grew more elaborate, culminating in last year’s Steam Summer Sale Monster Game. But then Steam Sales changed. Now there’s no meta game to be found.

Cyberpunk Bartending Game Mixes Waifus With Great Storytelling

Bartending for a delinquent cast of sci-fi characters, it turns out, is the ideal way to world-build a dystopian visual novel/game. VA-11 Hall-A, released yesterday on Steam, offers players the chance to serve up noxious drinks to the sketchy citizens of Glitch City, circa 207X AD, the kind of place that would star as the background for a sci-fi blockbuster. The game is a must-buy for fans of interactive fiction, stylised retro games, cyberpunk and girls with cat ears — just about everybody, right?
