Jun 09

Steam sale: Just Cause 2, Garry's Mod, Goat Simulator


This isn't over yet, huh?
Dec 23
// Brett Makedonski
Much to my dismay, the Steam Holiday Sale is still going on. Maybe it'll never end. Maybe discounted PC games are the new standard. And then Valve will further slash the prices of select games -- causing a sale within a sale -- a paradox capable of ripping apart the fabric of this fragile existence. Don't enable Valve and its world-ending ways.
