Have you prepared your wallet and stocked your wishlist full of games? The Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2021 has officially begun and so there's a lot to pick from that's currently discounted.

Before getting into the games, this year Valve has updated their Points Shop with a bunch of bundles so if you have plenty of points ready you can now buy big packs ans save 10%. Bundles include: Lunar New Year Oxen Bundle, CS:GO Bundle, DOTA Bundle, Half-Life Bundle and a Portal 2 Bundle.

There's also a Year of the Ox 2021 animated profile, miniprofile, avatar frame, and animated avatar. On top of that there's also the ability to claim a free animated sticker each day of the sale, featuring this year's zodiac star: the Ox!

As per usual, we'll give a few recommendations of games that have Linux builds that deserve some attention:

Be sure to also look through our Steam Curator for a handy list of titles we've reviewed that we enjoyed (or didn't) if you're in need of further inspiration.

The Steam Lunar New Year Sale 2021 lasts until February 15th, 10 AM Pacific / 6 PM UTC. See more on the Steam store.

Also don't forget that Paradox Interactive also have their own sale with Cities: Skylines currently free to play, and DRM-free store GOG are also doing a huge sale.

Witcher 3 Wild Hunt GOTY is $10 USD on Steam, GOG, and Humble. Seems lie a good time to pick it up if you have been waiting for a sale.

Funnily enough, that's what I've been considering. I vastly favour buying native Linux titles, but if the game is sufficiently discounted, I'll buy it to play with Proton.

Desperados III is also on sale at ~60% off for the Digital Deluxe Edition bundle - I think this is where I finally bite!

Runs perfectly for me, have been playing it with local coop with my daughter on and off for about 30 hours or so. See one-time "fix" in ProtonDB that you need to apply.

I picked up Blasphemous

At $11.59 (CAD), it's the lowest price Steam has had it. And I think Steam is the only platform with the native Linux version.
