The Steam Winter sale is now live, prepare your wallets

By - | Views: 17,434
It's that time of the year folks, as Steam has cut the prices on tons of awesome games! Make sure your wallet is prepared.

As usual, the Steam website is up and down constantly as it struggles with demand for games! If you be patient and refresh a few times it does eventually work, but it will calm down in a few hours.

To preempt any "you missed x game": There's thousands of games on sale right now, but these below are my choice picks for you to check out if you haven't already.

* Insurgency - 80%
* Cities: Skylines - 75% off
* PAYDAY 2 - 75% off
* Invisible, Inc. - 70% off
* Mad Max - 66%
* Retro-Pixel Castles - 50% off

* PAC-MAN 256 (60% off) gets a special mention as I think it's a fantastic arcade game. My son has been playing it with me a little and he really gets into it. If you have kids, this is one to buy.

* The Steam Link has a massive 60% off, which really is an absolute steal!

* The Steam Controller is once again on sale with 30%. I can still recommend it after having two since release. Article taken from

I just purchased The Talos Principle, Metro Redux bundle and Black Mesa. I've never played any of them and I've been waiting for a sale so I can get my hands on them.
These games plus a couple I bought on other sites on sale, now I have enough Linux games to play for a whole year or more

EDIT: I also pulled the trigger on a second Steam controller. I'm in love with it and friends have always asked me to play but didn't have any additional controllers to do it, until now!

Oh, well, good thing we can always count on Steam to make appropriate suggestions based on what games you like.

I have a full page of Black Mesa and Grim Fandango. I might have to checkout jotun which appears in the corner, though.

I just got Antichamber and CS:GO. I still can't believe Antichamber was only 3 USD!
