Digital-distribution platform Steam has begun hosting week-long deals, starting with four titles that are 50 to 75 percent off until February 18 at 10:00am Pacific. The games in question are an assorted bunch: FlatOut ($1.87), Steel Storm: Burning Retribution ($2.49), Alpha Prime ($1.25), and Karateka ($4.99).
Not exactly something to write home about, though I will say that the very notion of week-long deals is enticing. It's not like I'm checking in on Steam every daily to see what's been discounted -- thank goodness -- so having a bit more time for the word to get out sounds good to me.
When a well-received big-budget game falls below that magical $20 price point, I'm in. Green Man Gaming has an excellent deal on Tomb Raider which drops the PC version from $49.99 all the way down to $16.99. And with the promo code GMG20-LLASD-D8WBQ, it's $13.60. Yes, that is ridiculous! Act sooner than later, as the deal is good through the rest of the day.more
