It is that time of year… though haven’t you bought enough video games this year already? All the numbers indicate that spending on games has been boosted by the pandemic. But here is a chance to add I a few more titles to your list.
With the first day of winter, at least here in the northern hemisphere, comes the start of the annual Steam Winter Sale.
Between now and January 5th the usual range of discounts will be available for many games on your wishlist. Did you just buy Cyberpunk 2077 last month at full price? Well, it is already on discount… if you can log in… whoops, no it isn’t. I logged in and could have sworn I saw it marked off then the server coughed, kicked us all out and it was back to full price again. But I bet somebody clicked on it in time if my eyes did not deceive me.
It isn’t a real Steam sale if something isn’t broken or mis-priced… usually both.
That will settle down soon enough through.
It is also your opportunity to vote in the annual Steam awards.
I am sure I will find the time to log in and vote. But the great weariness of 2020 has actually made it less likely for me to buy or try something new. We shall see.
