Day 8: Steam holiday sale deals are a Far Cry from a Bulletstorm

So we’re back, Day 8, tons of casualties so far and the sale machine keeps going strong. Today we have a new assortment that many will find attractive. Without any other jabbering on…

What to buy? Far Cry is a staple in the FPS genre, while Crytek made the first game and Ubi had a new team do the sequel the games are still amazing examples of technical achievement. Worms is a classic to pass the day with fun strategy gaming and Kings Bounty handles the more hardcore elements.

While normally that’s it, Beat Hazard is a sweet deal, Rock of ages is a blast, Bastion has gotten so much praise this year it’s crazy and Red Faction and Bulletstorm will have you gaming for months to come.

It’s hard to pass up anything in this batch but if your’e budgeting time go for what looks to fit your desires best. Also, some of the franchise bundles are a steal right now.
