Steam Lunar New Year sale offers extra discounts for big spenders

Another day, another big Steam sale, but this one is a little more straightforward. To celebrate the Chinese year of the pig, prices are slashed on many games until February 11th, 6pm GMT, and spending £30 gets you a one-time £5 discount. More convoluted is the sale rewards booth page here. You're awarded virtual pig-tokens based on how much you've spent on Steam in the…

Steam’s Autumn Sale begins and user award nominations open

RPS is here to help pick out the best of the bunch, and without leaving your bank account completely pillaged. You can find the official list of games on sale here, ranked…

Steam Summer Sale recommendations: 2018 edition!

The old quote is wrong: neither death nor taxes are, it seems to me, as terrifyingly certain as the Steam Summer Sale. Yes, once more we can add to the heap that is our backlog by buying games for, what, five quid, on average? But there are so many to choose from that it's easy to get flustered, so who better than the staff of…

Steam’s Halloween Sale is great for grand strategy

With Halloween fast approaching, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about typical spooky things: ghouls and ghosts, vampires and werewolves, marrying off my daughter to an appropriate suitor and the best trade strategy to dominate the Aegean. The Steam Halloween Sale is in full swing until November 1, and thanks to Paradox Interactive, it’s full of grand strategy games.

Cheeky Monkeys: Steam Lunar New Year Sale Is On

Happy Chinese New Year! We're now in the Year of the Monkey, and Valve have realised this is a fine opportunity for another sale. Like the Gregorian New Year sale which ended ooh just over a month, the Lunar New Year Sale doesn't have daily deals, flash deals, games, or any of that guff which confuses and frustrates people who don't want to watch check…

Falling Leaves, Tumbling Prices: Steam Autumn Sale On

An ache in my left hip awoke me this wet morning. This dicky joint has been reliably crying "Hey! Get up! You're missing a lovely noise!" for weeks now, but this morning's throb felt different. It's been going on long enough that I could sense something special in the air. It was as if we'd moved from rainy mornings into autumn - proper autumn -…

Developer Discounts: Steam Sales Are Changing

How many types of Steam sale are there? The huge seasonal ones, midweek discounts, daily reductions and bundled packs all vie for the attention of your eyes whenever they crop up on the front page. It’s almost impossible to buy a game that isn’t subject to price cuts so low that I’m beginning to suspect that Crazy Eddie has taken over Valve HQ. Apparently, the…

Rohrer Isn’t Wrong About Sales, But He Also Isn’t Right

OK, first things first: Castle Doctrine, Passage, and Sleep is Death creator Jason Rohrer is a giant. I am automatically more inclined to believe anything very tall people say. They've seen so much more than the rest of us from their monolithic neck perches, their giraffe-like forms stretching up into stratospheres I've only dared imagine. Also, it's instinct: big person beat me up, ergo ideologically…

Cerulean Wednesday: Steam Autumn Sale Begins

Never mind that it's Thanksgiving tomorrow, and December in four days, Steam is having an Autumn Sale. "Autumn", eh? Aren't they sounding British and thus far more civilised and sophisticated! So yes, once again the Store Page of Steam is to be completely useless for a week (although at least this time they've remembered to include some ability to see new releases). Oh, and there…

Spring (Wallet) Cleaning: Steam’s Indie Spring Sale

I'm in the process of moving to a new house, just had to resuscitate my poor little shoe car from the brink of death, and was recently informed that the meticulously stone-hewn, full-sized medieval castle required of all RPS writers isn't tax deductible. I cannot, in other words, afford anything. On that note, do you want to buy some dirt? Or how about this nice clump of…

It Begins: The Steam Autumn Sale

You'd think I would've figured this out by now. Every year, Steam hosts one of its wallet-eviscerating sales right around American Thanksgiving (or, as it's known to many of you, Thursday), yet I consistently fail to budget the necessary amounts of money or time for its incredible bounties. One reason for this might be that it's impossible. Indeed, it would require setting aside all the money…

Robo Crazy: Plain Sight 1.2 Patch & $2 Sale!

Kieron and I got a bit worked up over indie robot-battler Plain Sight, and I've put a few of our choice quotes (as well as a video of the game) after the jump. What you need to know is that not only has the recent 1.2 patch added both persistent perks and hats (their words: "It worked for TF2, right?"), Plain Sight has just begun…
