By - | Views: 27,899

Another festival of games is live on Steam now with Steam FPS Fest 2024 running until April 22nd at 10am PT / 5pm UTC, and there's also plenty of demos for games to try too.

For those of you building up thousands of Steam Points as well the Points Shop also has a couple of new items for the event. Good, because I have nearly a million and need something to do with them…wait a minute, they're free?!

Looking through here's some of my quick-picks for under a tenner:

Shadow Warrior - 90% off (Native Linux / Deck Verified)

Black Mesa - 80% off (Native Linux / Deck Playable)

Boomerang X - 75% off (ProtonDB Gold / Deck Verified)

Severed Steel - 75% off (ProtonDB Platinum / Deck Verified)

theHunter: Call of the Wild - 70% off (ProtonDB Gold / Deck Unsupported)
Valve really need to update the Steam Deck rating, it's worked fine for a long time.

BattleBit Remastered - 50% off (ProtonDB Gold / Deck Playable)

Also, if you've been watching the Fallout show on Amazon Prime (which was fantastic by the way), you might want to grab some of the Fallout games which are on sale, although their sale ends on April 19th. They're all rated Steam Deck Playable, and ProtonDB Gold:

Fallout 76 - 80% off

Fallout 4 - 75% off
Fallout 4 is getting an update on April 25th too!

Fallout: New Vegas - 75% off

Fallout 3 - 75% off

See the full event live on Steam.

I'm absolutely diving back into Fallout soon myself, after recently finishing up Alan Wake, as I don't like to play more than one story game at the same time. Can't wait! The show really gave me the itch to need more.

The Fallout TV series was indeed absolutely superb. I'm practically aching for a second season. Gonna be a long wait. In the meantime, I think I'm going to play Fallout 3 again, then New Vegas. Might even push myself to play more than 1 hour of Fallout 4 - something about that one just didn't resonate for me.

Reckon I'll still stay clear of Fallout 76 though. To this day, it still gets crap reviews, and while it might only £7 in the sale at 80% off, it's apparently rammed full of MTX begging for your money.

Just to play devils advocate to Fallout 76... I bought the game at release and, content wise, it has grown quite substantially since it released... not the least of which because it was finally given legit NPCs. The MTX situation is true. While the vast majority is cosmetic related, they so sell those items that "help you" skip the more grindy parts of the game (like repairing weapons and collecting scrap)... I will admit, I lost a lot of respect for Bethesda when they put up those later items. None-the-less, the game proper can be a blast, especially if you have a buddy or two to explore with, and when I say you can play the whole game without ever touching the MTX content, I mean that. If you ignore the MTX content exists, I think you'd be hard pressed to feel like the game was that much different from Fallout 4... at least it was for me.

I admit it, I laughed at the "Fips Fest" line in the trailer. That's exactly my sort of daft humour, right there.

I bought Fallout 76 for that price... what a crap! Battling for one hour to create a account in betesda (I had already an account with my trash email, but this stupid company doesn't tell me and only return unspecific error! Thne to reset the password (forgotten), their stupid site doesn't tell me that I don't have to enter my email BUT my pseudonym.

Then I create a character, then I try to interact with one of the object on the first desk from the very start (in the room of the character) ... got back to the Desktop directly.
Tried on my dual boot on windows, same experience on the same object... Seriously? Supposed to be a AAA game or something like that, but no credit in this company to do stuff seriously?

I moved to install Fallout2 again and start a new run.

This is why many people like to call them Bugthesda for a reason
Fallout 4 for $5 is awfully tempting.

The two deluxe edition upgrades for Killing Floor 2 and Rising Storm are of course not on sale. The two things that I'd still buy despite being broke. lol

I hate how there are separate listings on Steam for Fallout 3 and Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition. After not looking for a while, I'm like: why does it say I don't own Fallout 3? Oh, I have the GOTY one... they collapsed a lot of the older Doom listings, surely they can do it for this one as well?

Yeah it is confusing but it seems it got the same treatment as Skyrim - you are supposed to get one most definitive edition with all DLCs already packaged.

The Skyrim case is much clearer; there is a "Anniversary Edition" listing, but it's a "sub" which clearly lists the "Special Edition" as part of it.
