The Encore Sale begins with some impressive Deals on Steam games


As the #sales come to an end, in the Steam Holiday Sale we have this last list of #suggestions. So if you have money in your Steam Wallet and feel like splurging, go for it. Even if there’s something you want that is not a Community Choice, or one of the “Best” deals, go for it. These last two days will be an Encore Sale and feature the biggest discounts for whatever price they were on the day they were featured.

To shake things up, today’s Steam Holiday Sale picks for January 1st, 2015 are ones we haven’t recommended yet.

      • Screencheat (Linux, Mac, Windows) for $7.99. Why? It’s a very fun game, but it does have a great style of gameplay. Makes for some ridiculous gaming with friends. Literally laugh out loud moments.
      • Hatoful Boyfriend (Linux, Mac,Windows) for $5.99. Why? Be coo. Find love as 2014 ends.
      • Kentucky Route Zero (Linux, Mac,Windows) for 25% off. Why? Having heard good things, it might also make you feel smart.
      • The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (Linux, Mac,Windows) for $10.99. Why? It’s 33% off and appears to be the lowest price available.
      • Shovel Knight (Linux, Mac,Windows) for $10.04. Why? It’s an incredible, retro-fabulous game.
      • The Long Dark (Linux, Mac,Windows) for $9.99. Why? It’s a really inventive sandbox survival game.

The one exception these games is a title vote Best Game of 2014, Divinity: Original Sin. Just play it. That’s all we can say.

Sadly, this will be our last Steam Holiday Sale update. After all, the Encore Sale runs for two days and there’s only so much we can tell you to buy. We hope you had a wonderful New Years Eve and that 2015 goes well for all of you.
