Community Review: The Christmas Steam Sales

Another year, another holiday, and another chance to throw your wallet at the screen for virtual discounts.

This year didn’t seem too bad in terms of what was on offer. There were some pretty good deals on AAA titles: DOOM dropped to as low as $US25 at one point, while there was a solid offering on the GOTY edition of The Witcher 3.

I ended up buying Furi just before leaving the country, while my partner gifted me Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, Golf With Your Friends, that odd RPG that teaches you Japanese, and a couple of the older Star Wars games that I didn’t have in my GOG library.

Separately, I also picked up 8-Bit Invaders (another RPG from the team that did Grey Goo), Geometry Dash, Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine and Endless Space 2. I was waiting until Christmas to jump on ES2, and while I haven’t spent plenty of time with it yet it’s a game I’ll quietly return as 2017 rolls out.

Come to think of it, I really do need a better library of games I can play on a laptop/with a touchpad.

But how did you all fare? Pick up anything on the cheap over Christmas?
