There's certainly never a shortage of a game sales and Steam today has three major big sales going. Taking a look, there's a lot of excellent games discounted. With so many on sale, you're spoilt for choice, I know I am. Trying to pick the next game is getting so difficult.

Here's a few quick tips on some games with links to each major sale.

On the Golden Week Sale 2020, which is inspired by the event that happens across Japan there's games like:

Plus more Anime / Visual Novel and various games from Japan. A large amount that don't support Linux officially, as is usually the case with Japanese games. For playing in the Steam Play Proton compatibility layer, I can happily recommend DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT at 33% off - it gets the GOL seal of approval.

Meanwhile there's also the tinyBuild's ZEN Publisher Weekend. Even more great titles available including:

Then we have the Tower Defense Tag sale which also has some delightful games such as:

If you pick up something good, remember to come back and let us know how it runs on Linux and what you think about it. Give your fellow readers a tip or two.

The Golden Week Sale has a VR section, but it doesn't actually have any VR titles. Strangeness.

bought Remember Me not exactly a Linux game really but a Linux friendly studio like DOnTNod.

Maybe it's one of these sales periods where titles are gradually added in small bunches.

It had a whole bunch of non-VR titles, so probably something different.
Hmm. They have Okami on sale, and protonDB gives it platinum. Very tempting.

I played it twice on the PS2 and then again on the PS3. Yes, I do think it is worth paying for 3 times...

Recently bought Valkyria Chronicles and Yakuza 0

From my initial run, after launch command tweaks (found in ProtonDB entry) Valkyria Chronicles runs nicely on my laptop.

Judging from ProtonDB entries for both games, I can happily recommend them.
