Steam Holiday Sale Day 4: Mass Effects, Deathly Spankings And Dark Sides


Day 4 of Steam’s holiday sale. “Enough!” you say! “Show me no more, for I have suffered enough! Devoted away my hard-earned gamer’s gold to the noble causes of administering headshots and running item shops!”


Bad news for you: Mass Effect 2 is 50% off at $24.99, with the original Mass Effect at $9.99. Oh, and Darksiders is $10.00, too, while DeathSpank is $7.49. If you’re into racing games, you can grab Blur for $14.99.


Capcom fans in America have a special deal all to themselves today, too. If you live in the U.S., Dead Rising 2 is 50% off at $20. If you own Resident Evil 5 on Steam, it’s 60% off. If you aren’t in the U.S., however, you’re out of luck…it looks like you can’t buy DR2 at all just yet.


I’m actually curious to see what our readers have been picking up since Steam’s sale began earlier in the week. I personally took the opportunity to pick up Prince of Persia (2008) while Kris went straight for Super Meat Boy and Recettear.


Note that the above prices can and do vary from region to region, so the prices you see on certain games might be different, depending on where you are. Thanks to Tsunayoshi Sawada for pointing this out.
