A Paladin’s Recommendations: Steam Winter Sale 2013 Day 4…

Day four has arrived for Steam so let’s get down to business. This series is about recommending or cautioning you about games on the Steam Daily Sale as well as any interesting GOG sales that might catch my eyes. I won’t bother with flash sales as those come and go too quickly. Don’t forget that yesterday’s deals are still in effect for another 24 hours so check out my previous post for information on those. So let’s get onto day four of this year’s sale.


  1. The Witcher 2: Assassin’s of Kings Enhanced Edition: An absolutely gorgeous game for the PC, this RPG has a lot of to it. I’ve only played 11 hours of it and I’m no where close to done with the game. But I’ve enjoyed the journey. The base vanilla combat system isn’t very good but there is an impressive mod that I’ve been using that amps up the combat system and might be something you’ll want to look into. 50% off isn’t the greatest deal but you do get a DRM-free copy from GOG.com when buying on Steam so maybe that’ll help. Still, $9.99 is not asking a lot for this great RPG.
  2. Antichamber: Want to break your brain? Then Antichamber is the perfect game for you. Ergh, I still haven’t a clue of what I’m doing in that game and I’ll probably get back to it at some point. This is a very hard game with a lot of mental and visual trickery.
  3. Shadow Warrior: I’ve been hearing good things about this game and it’s made by the same people who made Serious Sam 3. It looks like a very enjoyable if completely sillly FPS shooter with very competent melee mechanics.
  4. SpaceChem: If Antichamber isn’t enough to break your brain, SpaceChem sure as heck will. This absolutely ridiculously hard puzzle game is only for those not of the faint of heart with puzzles.

Warning and Caution on these Games:

  1. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: It’s been a long time since I last played Oblivion and it was in a pretty rough state then. Bugs were plenty, the game felt all over the place with its execution and it just wasn’t that fun. I’ve heard that mods help fix a lot of problems the series has so you’ll want to do some research on the title before you go out and buy it.

Hope you enjoyed this post, more recommendations coming tomorrow!

Have a Merry Christmas!
