Steam Holiday Sales: Day 5 – An RPG Kind Of Day

By Ishaan . December 24, 2010 . 3:02pm

Today’s Steam holiday sale features quite the interesting line-up. Amongst the deals are three RPGs with fantastic deals on all of them.


There’s Borderlands with all of its additional content for 50% off, the Overlord (ok, so it isn’t “technically” an RPG) complete pack for 85% off, and finally, Torchlight for 75% off at $4.99.


Moving away from RPGs, there’s Devil May Cry 4 for $9.99, and Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, also for $9.99. Honestly, it’s a little scary when you think about the fact that there’s 9 more days of these sales to go.

    I don’t know, Overlord II is pretty RPG-ish to me. I was surprised at how much so when I played it. I bought it expecting an action game. Instead, there’s money, equipment, towns, skill customization, NPCs, amoral choices that actually have an effect on the world. . .that’s pretty RPG-like in my book.

    Fun game. Glitchy, but fun. Definitely worth that price.

    • Ahh, I know…it’s just some people insist it’s “action adventure” like Zelda. I’m with you though. Overlord falls squarely into the RPG category for me…far more so than Zelda (which I actually do think is more A/A than RPG).

      Man, we should get some of the PC crowd around here playing together sometime…

      The complete Overlord pack for 3€ is a steal, but I already have the first game and expansion for the 360, and I don’t feel like playing it again. It was nice, although the writing could really use some help.

      In the end, I bought the Humble Bundle instead.

  • Got me the Borderlands DLC. >8D

    Now I have no money… T~T

  • Thus far ive just nabbed Mass Effect 2 from the deal (a friend surprised and gifted it to me today, oddly), lol.

    Some of the stuff today is compelling.

      Mass Effect is sweet. I remember playing the first one. Didn’t quite finish the second. Story is surprisingly well though. I always made my Shepard a chick. She looked real nice and had attitude. Is that weird?…
