I love the smell of freshly discounted games in the morning. The latest round of Steam deals in the Monster Summer Sale is up, and they're ready to give your wallet another thrashing. Here's what stood out to us in the action department:
- Dishonored for $4.99, and its Game Of The Year edition for $10.19
- Shadow Warrior franchise - there's the 2013 remake of Shadow Warrior for $3.99
- The Bioshock franchise is deeply discounted, and Bioshock Infinite is $7.49
- Dead Space 2 has both horror and spaceships for a mere $4.39
If you prefer your adventures to span entire countries and dozens of hours, here are some RPGs:
- Divinity franchise, with Divinity: Original Sin at $26.79
- Shadowrun franchise - Shadowrun Returns at $2.99, and Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut for $4.49
- Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition for $6.59
And if you like your activities to be more cerebral, visit the strategy section:
- The Galactic Civilizations franchise is 25% to 75% off, with Galactic Civilizations III sitting at $37.49
- Crusader Kings II for $7.99
- Frozen Cortex for $12.49
- Xenonauts, a sort-of-remake of the original X-COM, for $12.49
These should be enough to tide you over. In case you've missed yesterday's deals, you have 24 hours to take advantage:
- The Far Cry franchise is 50% to 75% off, but the highlights are Far Cry 3 for $4.99 and Far Cry 4 for $29.99
- The Aliens franchise is similarly discounted. Alien: Isolation is $12.49
- The Civilization franchise is 60-75% off. Civilization V: Complete Edition is $12.49, and Civilization: Beyond Earth is $19.99. I could say that I have sunk over 800 hours into the former, but that would make it look like I don't have a life.
- Endless Legend is 50% off at $17.49. I strongly recommend this—it has elements of both Endless Space and Civilization V, and incredible artwork and music. It's me-approved.
- The Banner Saga for $4.99
- Grim Fandango Remastered for $7.49. A lot of gerbils will fondly remember the original.
- Transistor for $4.99
That's all for today. If we missed a good deal, please share with other gerbils in the comments.
