To prepare for his now-legendary portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger locked himself in a hotel room, scribbled down what he imagined the Joker’s schizophrenic thoughts might sound like, and spent hours practicing that chilling voice and laugh. Luckily, you won’t have to go to quite those lengths to get a taste of insanity – Steam’s got Amnesia: The Dark Descent at 75% off all day! They’ve got other titles on sale as well, but nothing else that will guarantee you a couple of weeks of sleeping with the lights on.
Out of deference to my readers’ bank balances, I have hitherto refrained from posting about the Steam Summer Sale and the vast range of goodies therein. That forbearance ends today, and you’ll thank me for it.
Company of Heroes and Limbo are available at $2.49 each. In case you’re not counting, that’s two and a half dollars for two games that redefined their respective genres – Company of Heroes for real-time-strategy, and Limbo for little-boy-creepiness (to be fair, it managed to be both incredibly creepy and incredibly awesome – which is pretty much the dream, isn’t it?)
Go forth and spend, my son.
