Steam Exploration Sale Day 2 offers a stuffing mix of games

steam sale blessed gaben

Any excuse.

Peter’s off eating turkey and generally giving thanks, so it falls to me to tell you about the second day of the Steam Exploration Sale. I’m not sure what he’s giving thanks for, mind you. Getting a day off work on a Thursday, maybe? Lucky git.

Before we start, I’d like to point out that the sale has just rolled over so some of the prices might not have updated yet. This happened yesterday, with a few prices fluctuating within the first 20 minutes or so. Also, the prices are in GBP, because that’s all I can see.

Some Text / Image promotion links here.

Let’s start by noting that the rather excellent Shadow Warrior is a whopping 90% off, dropping it to £2.99. I’d highly recommend that, at least, not least because the console version has only just been released. Buy it and then ask your console-owning friends how much they paid for it!

There are a few other “bigger” games at low prices today, including BioShock Infinite at £4.99, Max Payne 3 at £3.74, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut at £3.24. They’re easily worth that price if you don’t have them, but I’d imagine you’ve got at least two of the three.

In terms of more recent stuff, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is down to £20.09, Sniper Elite 3 is £19.99, and Tropico 5 is £12.24. Not the biggest discounts on the first two (especially when compared to yesterday’s prices on, say, The Evil Within) but Tropico 5 is an excellent dictate-’em-up – although it’s perhaps a little too similar to its predecessor games. Not a bad option if you haven’t played them or fancy spending the colder months ruling a tropical island, though.

It would probably be remiss of me not to mention the entertaining Payday 2 at £5.74, the decent Banished at £5.99 or the utterly exquisite Risk of Rain at £1.74. Oh, and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution 3 is a mere £4.99; it’s better than its successor in basically every way (except for having slightly fewer characters) so if you fancy an anime fighting game, that’s also a pretty good bet.

Then there’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, and Heroes of Might & Magic 6, and… well, yes, there are lots of games on sale. Go have a look at Steam to decide for yourself.

  1. It’s funny to see a site that previously covered console games force console hate so hard. You’re clearly insecure.

      First up. This site was originally PC only for many, many years. A new editor joined in 2007 and decided that console coverage would be good. Editor left and as the site founder I wanted to take it back to its roots which was PC only. Console coverage never sat comfortably with the core team and that core team is now running the site and writing editorial.

    • i for one am glad that the site has a pc focus. there are enough console game sites out there.

      I’m not really being serious – I’m just amused by all the console-versus-PC stuff so I poke at it whenever I can. I mean, I own most consoles (barring current gen ones) anyway. PC’s always been my focus, but I’ve never bought into system exclusivity at all. Apologies if it seems otherwise, though!

      As Paul says, covering just PC is a whole lot more comfortable for all of us. It’s certainly what we know best, too.

    • fyi hes trolling

  2. I absolutely love that this site is for PC Games, and PC Game information, and I for one have not seen any console “hate” on the site, just a funny jab here and there.
