Lock up your wallets!!

But also, see if you can get a better price here for a Steam key. Apparently this site is a reseller for vendors that buy in bulk and sells at discount. I've bought several Steam codes, and even a windows licence from here with no issue: Steam CD Keys and Game Keys - Compare & Buy | Kinguin.net

Worth checking for a price comparrison before you push the button on steam.

Steam sale is back on the 22nd...

Could have saved €3.50 on playerunknowns battlegrounds. Which is the greatest thing ever by the way.

I bought both a steam link and controller via adverts over the last few months as I wasn't sure they'd be worth full price. I love both of them. I've got my mega PC battlestation at one end of the house, and my steamlink at the other. I've a hardwired connection to my network switch and to my steam link so I can play all my steam games on the telly. Perfect for couch potatoing. Highly recommended, especially if you can get at a good price. It also mirrors your PC desktop so you can run any other pc applications via the steamlink too.

I have so far managed to buy one game and every time I manage to get through to my cart sine I end up getting an error when I click purchase. Pain in the hole.

Dishonoured 4.99 on Steam. FFS people, jump on that.

Watch how someone supernaturally good at this game plays it. Your game will look nothing like this!


The part where he combines the "posession" skill with the melee attack via severed head he's harvests blows my mind every time....

Another highlight about 2:29 where he waits to be shot at, then slows time, possesses the gunman, and walks him backwards in a curve so that he essentially shoots himself. Amazing.

If you haven't played it, imagine a Bethesda first person stealth game where stealth isn't the only option and there's many ways to complete a mission. Loved this a lot.

I can highly recommend a stream controller. It's very effectively replaced mouse and keyboard for 95% of the games I play, and it's gyro-aim is so much more intuative and accurate than either mouse or traditional controller. Check out Adverts for cheap used ones. I've a Steam Link too for hooking up my PC Battlestation into the living room. I rarely use it, but it's a nice option to have.

Guacamelee is €1.39 on Steam today.

If you can co-op this with somebody I can gaurantee you a very very good time. Simply one of the most fun games I've ever played. It's a metroidvania btw. Takes a short while to see the appeal when you get started, but then it's awesome.

I love it so much, but it's a hard game to recommend. I'm even baulking at their Sanhok pass - if they'd put their fucking house in order I'd absolutely be buying the pass regardless that I don't give a piss about cosmetics or "progression".

GTA V is €14.99 on Steam at the moment, an all time low. If you've not played it, that's a lot of bang for your buck. Worth it alone for the fact that it contains the greatest video game acting performance of all time...

Plan to be a shut-in at Xmas? This is the one for you.
