A quick one this. Steam have been running day-long deals to see in the New Year and today marks the final date you can get some absurdly good games at some ridiculously low prices. Time's up by 5pm today so if you have a hankering for any of the games below then you need to get your skates on.
There's a massive selection of games on offer, so I'll just mention a few of the best ones below along with their cheapest competitors:
GTA IV - £4.99 (Play - £9.99)
Bioshock - £3.49 (ShopTo - £7.99)
Left 4 Dead 2 - £20.99 (The Hut - £24.73)
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl - £2.00 (Tesco - £4.97)
Defense Grid: The Awakening - £1.75 (Direct2Drive - £6.95)
The folks over at Steam are also doing their part for indie gaming, and have knocked up to 80% off of their listed independent games. So, if you never got the chance to sample the frankly excellent Braid, or somehow bypassed the brilliant World of Goo, there's never been a better opportunity to right those gaming wrongs and give yourself a New Year treat. Hit the link below for more info.
Be sure to get a move on though as the sale ends in just an hour. Have a browse around and you're sure to find something to pique your interest. £5 for a game the size and scope of GTA IV is pretty damn good, and there are plenty of superb indie games for those who just want to get their casual fix on. I've spent far too much on Steam over the last few days, but Defense Grid ended up thinning out my funds that little bit more. It's absolutely fantastic!
