It’s Black Friday, which means there are sales everywhere – but for Steam, it’s just another day in their Exploration Sale.
There’s only one way I can start this off: Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition is £4.99. I know, I know! You already own it! I have no choice but to point this out, though, because if I don’t Peter will stab me in the back and then do that bloody WELL WHAT IS IT gesture.
He might also be displeased if I don’t mention Europa Universalis 4 at £8.74 or The Banner Saga at £3.74, and he’d possibly want me to mention State of Decay at £3.74 or Endless Legend at £13.49, but I’m not so sure about those. I’ll do it anyway just to avoid arousing his ire, though.
For my part, I’d like to mention that Batman: Arkham Origins is £3.74 and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is £9.99. The latter is still relatively pricey but it’s also a much safer bet than Assassin’s Creed Unity, and the former isn’t a great game but is still worth that low price of admission. Bugbear’s Next Car Game/Wreckfest is £11.49, too, which is the one thing on sale that’s tickled my fancy today.
Two more things I want to specifically mention. GRID Autosport is 66% off, dropping it to £8.49; as I recall Peter thought it was a middle-of-the-road attempt to appease both simulator fans and those who love arcade racers, but it’s notable for being this low despite only coming out in June. Finally, I want to mention Euro Truck Simulator 2, because Paul bought it on Steam yesterday despite my continual warnings to wait for the daily deals. It’s £2.24 now! I have no idea how much it was yesterday, but, y’know. Savings.
If any of those (or Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition, Darksiders 2, the rather fun Democracy 3, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, or a whole bunch of others) tickle your fancy then head on over to Steam. If you want something that’s not on the daily list? Wait for the daily deals before buying.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
