If you think you missed yesterday, well, you didn’t miss anything. The Steam deals yesterday were rather pathetic and you can get those tickets at any time during the Summer Camp event with yesterday’s freebie ticket being rather easy to get. Today’s Steam deals are much better. Here are my recommendations:
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Left 4 Dead 2 (or get both if you don’t have the original L4D)
For the strategy fans:
King’s Bounty Franchise
For the puzzle lovers:
Jamestown just popped up on my radar thanks to this sale. I know, I know. I should know about these games long before big sales come along, but, while I’m a sucker for third-person shooters, I’m an even bigger sucker for anything that resembles ‘Tyrian’ or ‘Raptor: Call of the Shadows’. It is once in a blue moon that a good-looking, old-school, top-down, arcade shooter like this comes along for the PC. This looks pretty sweet and has a solid Metacritic rating.
Today’s freebie ticket is to play Spiral Knights and add a firecracker bomb to your arsenal. As much as I severely dislike MMORPGs, I tried Spiral Knights anyway a couple weeks ago because the first 15 levels of a character in MMOs aren’t TOO bad. The lag was incredibly bad and it took forever to start up with a zillion updates. So, while this achievement might seem easy and the game itself looks okay, get ready to pull your hair out over the lag. This “freebie” gets a pass from me.
