It’s almost here! It’s almost here!
The Steam Christmas Sale is rumored to start on December 19th, and I cannot wait. I have been very good lately, avoiding both the Fall Sale and all Humble Bundles, but my resolve is starting to fail this close to the holidays and I demand NEW GAMES .. for me to ignore.
To be honest, my list is a little short this year. I’ve already bought (and, for the most part, played) many of the biggest titles so far, and I think I’ve gone so crazy at previous sales that there isn’t much left for me to get! That being said, there are a few titles…
1) Papers, Please – Currently $9.99, I’ll buy for $4.99
I played this game during its beta, and there’s a reason it has become one of the indie darlings of this year. Papers, Please combines solid, non-violent gameplay with an unsettling story. I want to buy it half so I can play the post-release content, and half just to support its development.
2) Audiosurf 2 – Currently $14.99, I’ll buy for $4.99
I’ve played all the Mass Effects, and I’ve played Sim City 4 and Tropico 4 until I literally fell asleep at my computer. But the Steam game I’ve spent the most hours playing? Audiosurf. Half game, half rockin’ party, Audiosurf 2 looks to take the original and add Tony Hawk-style tricks. My pocketbook wants me to wait until Audiosurf 2 is $5, but then it will be mine.
3) Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Currently $14.99, I’ll buy for $7
Booker and Elizabeth go to Rapture and solve noir crimes! There is absolutely no part of that sentence that I do not love.
So what are you hoping to pick up in the big sale?
