The 2014 Steam Holiday Sale is still on, and there are some big names among today's Featured Deals.
For starters, the still-fairly-new Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is 40% off at $29.99. You can also find Thief for $7.49, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for the same price, and Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons for just $1.49. I'm a big fan of CS:GO, so I can definitely vouch for that one. Brothers looks like a safe pick, too, on account of the overwhelmingly positive Metacritic reviews. I may grab it myself.
If you catch this post early, you'll be able to get your fill of the latest 12-hour deals. Those include FTL: Faster Than Light, which is down to $2.49 (and highly rated), and Turbo Dismount, another popular pick that's only $3.39.
Oh, and there are some new Community's Choice picks up for grabs. Dust: An Elysian Tail is on that list for $3.74, 75% off the usual price. I've heard good things about it, but I can't overlook the furry/anime art style enough to give it a shot. Maybe you'll be braver than I am.
