Another day, another set of ridiculous deals from Steam. I don't know about you, but I go to bed looking forward to the deals I'll see in the morning, even if I've only actually bought around three so far. Today will change that.
Below is what we think are the best deals for today, but feel free to let your fellow Kotakuers know what shouldn't be missed. Hopefully someone, somewhere, had this headline pop up on their phone in the middle of a holiday day party, realised they needed to spend money on games, and quickly snuck off to take advantage of the deals. We care about you enough to hinder your social life in favour of more game time.
With a lot to choose from, you probably can't go past Dust: An Elysian Tail for $3.74 USD. It's made by one man, yet has some great graphics and a competent combat system. There's a companion character with an annoying voice, but all up it's very impressive.
Garry's Mod is going for $2.49 USD, which makes me feel kind of silly for buying it a while ago for around $20. Use it to manipulate the world of Half-Life, creating physics puzzles or hilarious machinima.
I actually had more raw fun with Torchlight 2 than I did with Diablo 3. It might not be as complicated, and it's pretty much just clicking through dungeons with ease — but let's be honest, Diablo 3 was just as easy. The complexity only made you feel like you had crafted a good build, when in reality there was no wrong answer to that problem. Grab Torchlight 2 for $4.99 USD.
Those who've played Deadpool (I haven't) have said it's quite chuckle-inducing, and you can grab that for $7.49 USD at the moment. And if you're looking for great 4x space empire action, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion gives it to you in real-time. Rebellion includes all the updates to the game so far, including Titan-class ships that are bigger than planets. It's going for $9.99 USD — just be ready to spend more than an hour on even a small game.
Other than that, I'd highly recommend not buying RAGE — if not because it's just a bad game, then because it's a coin toss as to whether it'll work on your computer, no matter how beastly your hardware is. What else would you recommend to your fellow Kotakuers? Let us know below!
