It's an especially good day on Steam. Not as good as it was over the break mind you, because there was a day there when Left 4 Dead 2 was literally free. It actually kind of broke the Steam front page. But I hear tell that when free isn't available, cheap is the next best thing. And these are certainly cheap.
Get ready to spend some money. As before, this post is part aggregation of what I think are the best deals, and part excuse to have the headline pop up one everyone's news feeds, be that RSS, Twitter, etc, and induce a moment of "Oh, crap! I only have 10 minutes left to spend $3 on that game I've been wanting for a while!"
It's a public service, really.
First up, Dark Souls for $9.98 USD. You've heard the stories. It says something when a game's hype is nearly 100% generated by the stories of those who play it. Don't be dissuaded by the "it's too hard" crowd. It's hard at first, in the way that new things can be, but difficulty is far from the game's only talking point.
Hotline Miami is $1.99 USD at the moment, and it's another challenging game. This one a few Game of the Year awards, too, and manages to pack a lot of meaning into its simple, retro graphics.
DmC Devil May Cry is both superb and superbly underrated, and is going for $12.49 USD right now. It's Ninja Theory's take on the franchise, but it's far from Baby's First Combat System.
