As part of the recent Steam front page revamp, Valve gave curators an even more prominent spot and added functionality so that they can list games as "not recommended" or provide Steam users with neutral information. Sounds good on paper. Doesn't really work in practice.
Steam sales are pretty common now. It doesn't mean they're not great. Doesn't mean they don't send us broke, just that... we're used to them.
We're also used to them mostly being populated by the same games.
*COUGH* Hotline Miami, Braid, Super Meat Boy *COUGH*
This sale is a little bit different.
Genital Jousting, a game about dick butts penetrating each other, slithered its way onto Steam early access earlier this month (though not in Australia or New Zealand). Since then, it has accrued 600 reviews, 93 per cent of which are "very positive". They're also pretty funny.
Before the big "Foundation" update that surprise-launched this weekend, No Man's Sky wasn't in a great place. On Steam, the game's concurrent player count hovered mostly between 200 and 500. It wasn't even within spitting distance of Steam's top 100 most-played games.
Amazon. Green Man Gaming. Steam. Good Old Games. Humble Bundle. Wherever you look today, chances are you'll see a sale and a fat discount.

This year, for the first time ever, Valve is giving out Steam Awards. The whole thing is community-driven, with Steam users nominating games and even submitting their own award categories. As you'd expect, the internet has taken its solemn duty very seriously. By which I mean the opposite of that.
No Man's Sky and Spore have a lot in common. Both were ambitious to a fault. They aimed for the stars, but fell well short of expectations. They also both had plenty of dick aliens.
I'll never say no to a co-op game set in the Warhammer universe, especially if it has anything at all to do with Space Hulk. So, yeah, Space Hulk: Deathwing is a thing, a thing that will available early next month and while we all wait patiently for its release, here's 20 minutes of fun from the solo campaign.
