Steam Holiday Sale


Steam is holding a massive sale once again offering a variety of daily deals, package deals and discounts on entire publisher catalogues, just like they did last year.

Starting off with the daily deals, I think Battlefield Bad Company 2 is the bargain of the day, being discounted from $50 to $15. There are some other good games in there too, but they're normally quite cheap anyway (and Portal was actually free at one point) - so they're not as much of a big deal (not saying they are bad games though!)

Indiana Jones performs a Renegade Interrupt

There's actually quite a few of these starting to pop up on YouTube (i.e. Renegade interrupts being superimposed on iconic movie scenes). This one occurs in one of my favourites :).


Here are some others:

Skyrim Trailer


And of course there is an Elder Scrolls teaser trailer for Skyrim which means you can expect a lot of Nords in this one... and dragons apparently...

Looks like it's coming out 11/11/11!

Mass Effect 3 Trailer



ZOMG ZOMG! A trailer for Mass Effect 3 has been released - and it's pretty awesome. It shows the Reapers attacking London, and what I find interesting about that is that in the previous Mass Effect games, there has been very little information about Earth. So at least now we know London exists... or at least it did until the Reapers came along... Hopefully you'll be able to visit and rescue cities that exist today.

I wonder what they mean by Holidays 2011 though. Does that mean the Summer (Jun, Jul Aug in the Northern Hemisphere)or X-mas holidays?

Christmas Deals

Not long to go until Christmas folks. Sorry for the lack of posts, been quite busy again the past few weeks.

Anyway to those that haven't noticed, some websites are running advent calendar sales. i.e. they are offering different sales or offers each day on the lead-up to Christmas.


Firstly, GoG.com are either making announcements or having contests on the lead-up to Christmas. So far they've announced a Christmas Carol contest where you can win 10 games, Serious Sam has a permanently reduced price, and Arcanum and Myst are now Windows 7 compatible. Note that they are stopping the announcements on the 14th December.


Secondly, GAME Australia are having sales on various items until December 25th. They appear to be online only deals. So far they've sold Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Guitar+Game packs for $90, International Cricket for PS3 for $50, Just Dance 2 for Wii for $40 and today's deal is World of Warcraft for $10.


Direct2Drive are also offering a sale until the end of 2010 where every fifth game bought on the site is free. So you have a 1 in 5 chance of securing a free game - not a bad deal.
