Steam sale, day 3: Borderlands, Ghostbusters, Trine, more
4:30 PM on 11.28.2009 // Samit Sarkar
Someone should charge Gabe Newell and Valve with conspiracy -- conspiracy to relieve PC gamers of their hard-earned cash, since the third day of Steam’s “Five-Day-Long, One-Day-Only” sale offers some more kick-ass, can’t-miss deals. Of course, you can still get the LucasArts Premier Pack and the THQ Complete Pack for $49.99 each; those prices will be in effect through Monday.
But if you missed Wednesday’s and Thursday’s deals, don’t fret -- today’s sale has games set at prices so low, you won’t be able to resist whipping out your credit card. Here are the highlights:
- Trine for $9.99 (50% off)
- Borderlands for $33.49 (33% off)
- Ghostbusters: The Video Game for $9.99 (50% off)
- Resident Evil 5 for $24.99 (50% off)
- Left 4 Dead: Game of the Year Edition for $7.49 (75% off)
- Spore for $19.99 (50% off)
Boy, Randy Pitchford wasn’t kidding when he called Steam a “money grab.” I succumbed to a few of Wednesday’s sales, so I’m going to do my best to hold off on any more Steam purchases, lest I go into debt. I’ve got to save my money for Q1 2010, which may even be more jam-packed with must-have games than this fall was.
By the way, these sales expire at 10 AM EST tomorrow -- in other words, they’ll only be valid for another 17 and a half hours. Go, go, go!
