5 Games to Snag During the Steam Holiday Sale
It’s Christmas Eve. You’re perusing the Steam Holiday Sale, because family is boring, and you’re wondering on which games you should capitalize. And you have no idea.
Obviously, there are tons of great details, many popping up on a rotating basis. I’m sorry to say that you missed the 50-percent cut to The Walking Dead if you haven’t already purchased that game, although you can still get it for a 25-percent discount. (And really, the game is worth full price. C’mon.)
We’ve been monitoring the Steam Sale for door-busters daily, but in the meantime, here are five picks on our radar that are too good to pass up, either for yourself or a loved one. Because, you know — it’s gift-giving time.
5. Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Seriously, do yourself a favor and stop stalling. We took advantage of the chance to replay KOTOR 2 this year with the release of the Restored Content mod, and it was truly a joyous thing. The mod (find it here) adds back a number of cut scenes — including an entire HK-47 portion in which you take down an HK-producing factory — and fixes a bunch of other things. KOTOR 2 is just a more complete game at this point, and a joy to play besides. Plus the ending is great.
You can grab KOTOR 2 for just $2.50 right now, and for the hours and hours (and hours) of awesome, deconstructive Star Wars adventuring you’ll get out of it, that’s a spectacular, incredible price. Oh, and KOTOR 1 is just $2.50 too.
4. Saints Row: The Third
Our Ross Lincoln lovingly gave Saints Row: The Third a 90/100 when it first hit the scene, and more than a year later you can snag the game for an insanely low price — $7.49. That’s not just Saints Row 3, it’s also “The Complete Package,” which means all manner of insane DLC comes with the game, as well. It’s a giant amount of open world content, complete with all the insanity and over-the-top humor you can handle.
