Steam Sports Fest has officially begun (I'm a little late on that) and it runs until May 22nd, so you've got plenty of time to check it out. During this time there are demos, discounts, free Steam stickers each day and more.
What actually counts as a sport when it comes to games is a pretty wide genre, that said sports as a whole is a pretty big net so no doubt there's something you'll be able to find.
Valve continue doing their funny little trailers now too:
Although they do the more serious business trailers as well:
If you scroll down the special sale page, there will be all sorts of filters you can apply. It's pretty slim pickings if you're only going for Native Linux games though. For Steam Deck and desktop Linux with Proton, there's loads of good picks that work out of the box. Admittedly sporting games aren't exactly my jam though.
Have you picked up anything good?
QuoteHave you picked up anything during Steam Sports Fest 2023?Athlete's foot. But I'm not sure if it's caused by the sale..?
Kidding aside. I did snatch up the four free DLCs for Dirt Rally 2.0!
It had too strong angsty juvenile vibes and I didn't care for the quality of the modeling or the controls.
I'm open to suggestions for great games, but sports has come across to me as a genre where some content can get away half assing things as there isn't fierce competition.
Quoting: tuubiI did look at Descenders (again), and it still looks fun, but I really don't need more games right now. Gotta work on that backlog.Get it, friend - it's great!
