So my wish came true. I just wish I was more specific. Steam’s Spring Sale started yesterday, however it only contains indie games. Rats. Anyways, there are simply too many titles to list them all. There are some great games, some of them at really good prices, some of them at not so good prices. I recommend picking up Terraria at 75% off. People often describe it as a 2d Minecraft, but describing it as just that is quite the disservice to the game. Those who are looking for more games that support Big Picture mode should check out Deadlight which is also 75% off. If you are looking for more platformers, the whole Trine series is 75% off too. Check out A Valley Without Wind 1& 2 for 75% off. The games are bundled together for the price of one and has been improved upon heavily since its release. If you’re looking for something that isn’t a platformer, give AudioSurf a try. The game is 75% off and one of the earliest indie games released on Steam that made it big. As long as you stick with 75% off deals on the Indie Sale, you really can’t go wrong as most of these games are only a few dollars in price.
Steam is still running their weeklong and weekend deals along side the Spring sale. Grotesque Tactics II: Dungeons and Donuts, Binary Domain, Cities XL Platinum, Lucius, Monday Night Combat, Disciples III Renaissance, Jagged Alliance 2, The Secret World, Natural Selection 2, and Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition are all on sale until Monday. I would love to recommend Monday Night Combat, but unfortunately the servers are pretty dead these days. The Secret World has been praised for its creative research missions, if you can survive the lack luster combat. However, at 25% off, you probably can wait for a better deal. Dark Souls is a great game and is on sale for 50% off, however it will need a patched file to overcome the FPS limiter. Natural Selection 2 is a great game with an excellent community. It is free to play for the weekend and 50%, so I highly recommend giving it a try. Don’t buy bother buying Binary Domain from Steam. It is much cheaper at Amazon right now.
Speaking of Amazon, they are holding a big sale on Sega games. Binary Domain is at one of the cheapest prices yet, at 80% off. The fantastic Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II series is 67% off, it’s definitely one of those underrated RTS titles that deserve a play through.
GamersGate has several Steam Games on sale this weekend. Galaxy on Fire 2 HD is on sale for 75% off. The space sim series started on the iOS and made the jump to PC. If the X series is too complicated for you, give Galaxy on Fire 2 HD a try. The Cave is also 50% off. This is one of the lowest prices in a while. The indie adventure game was created by Ron Gilbert of Monkey Island fame and Double Fine Production. The price is the lowest so far. Just Cause 2 Complete Edition is on sale. It contains the full game, all of the DLC, and the strategy guide for $7.50. If you are looking for a less serious open world game and found Saints Row 3 a little too ridiculous for your taste, give Just Cause 2 a try. I am a huge fan of the title and the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer mod makes it worth the price.
Get Games has several big titles on sale this weekend. Pre-orders for the upcoming MMO shooter Defiance is at 22% off. If you missed Greenman Gaming’s 25% off pre-order sale, this is your next best bet. Sleeping Dogs is on sale for 75% off. Short of Steam’s pricing error over the Winter Sale, this is the lowest the game has gone. I highly recommend this game just for its excellent reproduction of Hong Kong alone. The Tomb Raider series is also on sale. The older titles are 75% off and the new Tomb Raider prequel is 20% off. Check out our review for Tomb Raider here.
Finally, Greenman Gaming has Borderlands 2 on sale this weekend for 66% off. Its the cheapest prices for a fantastic game that easily was a top competitor for 2012’s Game of the Year. Aliens vs Predator is also 75% off. There are a bunch of Total War games for 75% off. Don’t bother picking up Spellforce from Greenman Gaming. You’re better off picking it up from Groupee’s Build a Bundle 5 with another game for a minimum of $1.50 price. Plus you get the cozy feeling of donating 20% of your money to charity. Check out all of this weekend’s deals here. If you still haven’t found something you like, use the code GMG20-FDSCL-AQQXD for 20% off your purchase. This code does combine with most sales for an extra 20% off.
