If you were like me, you were expecting some amazing Thanksgiving-ish deals on Steam. Instead, what we got was a lousy round of pathetic deals on some rather mediocre games. It made me and my friends sad. Sure, we picked up a few things, but nothing worth blogging about other than Portal 2 being $10.19 at one point.
Enough griping. What is happening right now, though, is definitely worth getting excited about: Every day on Steam, there will be a new Daily Deal (not unusual) AND as long as you visit that deal’s page while logged in, you will be signed up for a drawing to get the top 10 games in your Wishlist for free. You don’t have to buy anything, just visit the deal page while logged in.
Today’s Deal: Terraria – looks/feels like a weird little Minecraft-ey game but in 2D and focused more on fighting enemies than building. Cost: $2.49.
The Steam Daily Deal tends to be Indie games. So, expect budget productions here for the most part. The real excitement is the chance to get your Wishlist items.
BRINK is also Free-To-Play until Sunday. Dunno if you want to buy it – a 70 Metacritic rating with actual gamers thinking it is a lot worse than that. But free-to-play is easy enough to deal with.
