So we’ve had a full weekend of the Steam sales so far and it’s been an interesting one.
I haven’t gone on a massive splurge just yet, although there have been a few discounts that were a little too good to pass up. Most people have pulled the trigger on Shadow of Mordor, although Hyper Light Drifter and Hollow Knight are at great prices too.
For me, I picked up the very good Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. It’s basically a spin on Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines but set in the Edo period, rather than members of the Dirty Dozen blowing up dams and shooting Nazis in World War 2.
Commandos was a very good video game. It's also a kind of game that we haven't seen much of since, so it's nice to see Shadow Tactics step in and deliver us a similar kind of experience. Well, as similar as swapping World War Two for Japan's Edo period can get, anyway.Read more
I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Nex Machina, and it was nice to get King’s Bounty for under $2. But besides Shadow of Mordor, there haven’t been any particularly flashy discounts on blockbuster games. That’s obviously publisher driven, but maybe Warner Bros’ move will encourage others to follow suit.
How have you found the latest Steam sales? Have you bought anything, and if so, what did you get?
