The end of daily deals

Posted on November 30, 2015 at 9:11 am

Now then – this is headline news. For year Steam sales have dominated the holiday seasons by offering great value for a week or ten day period. As part of the sales tradition Steam offered what was called Daily Deals – every game was on sale over the course of the sale – but on these days games had an extra discount. The phrase “wait for the daily deals” was the mantra of sales. Occasionally, though, people would get burned. They might buy a game on day one only to find it a good few pounds cheaper later.
To that end Valve have announced that daily deals, and flash deals – a shorter deal that might only last a few hours, will be no more. Instead we will just have sales with various activities over the course of the week or 10 days. That does quite well by me – though the worry is that the daily deal prices we were used to seeing will be gone. Instead we’ll just have resting prices that publishers don’t need to risk.

Civ Beyond Earth: Rising Tide

Posted on November 2, 2015 at 1:54 pm

Ah Civ games. I remember when I would chomp at the bit to play just “one more turn” in the older civilisation games; staying up late, avoiding responsibilities just to see if I could finally get Genghis Kahn to bow to my will. Yet the release of Civilization: Beyond Earth left a sour taste in my mouth; it wasn’t as fun, wasn’t as interesting and like a lazy game from a company so often heralded for its work.


I was hoping, then, that the expansion (Rising Tide) would go some way to fixing the Civ shaped hole in my heart. It’s with no small amount of regret, then, that I tell you that it hasn’t. There’s a few changes here or there that improve the overall experience, but it is yet to go far enough to convince me that this is a worthwhile entry in the series. Maybe in a few more patches and expansions it might be, but right now? I don’t think so.

Splatoon: Believe the hype

Posted on September 29, 2015 at 8:20 pm

So I hadn’t played Splatoon before. A mainly multiplayer focused game on the console with the worst online integration of all the current generation; a game that wasn’t about killing, a game that wasn’t about scoring points in traditional ways. It is a game about painting. Two teams of four compete over a map with the aim of covering as much of the ground as possible in paint the colour of their team.

It’s simple, but that works to the game’s credit. There’s a lot of stuff I’m not crazy about; there’s some slow pace between the games and walking around the plaza and suffering through some introductory stuff every time you log in or visit a shop. But the gameplay is great fun; the matches are short, 3 minutes at a time, and even a loss is easy to take because, before you know it, you’re into another game.
