The Steam Holiday Sale page has just been updated with a new collection of discounts. Today's Featured Deals include Saints Row IV and The Walking Dead: Season 2, which are 75% off at $4.99 and $6.24, respectively. Other picks include Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and GTA IV, which are both $4.99.
Steam has also freshened up the 12-hour deals and Community's Choice sections. Among the items there are Papers, Please ($2.49) and Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines ($4.99). The latter came out in 2004 and was, I believe, the first commercial game to use Valve's Source engine—before even Half-Life 2 was released. I had a good time playing it back then, but I can't vouch for how well it's aged.
Oh, and the latest Community's Choice picks include 3DMark Advanced Edition, too, for some reason. The Advanced Edition unlocks access to all eight benchmark tests, plus custom configuration settings and a few other bells and whistles. I guess this one will please overclockers and tweakers who feel limited by 3DMark's free release. Or something.
