Best Deals You Shouldn’t Miss Before the Steam Winter Sale Ends

By Melvyn Tan on Jan 3, 2018

The Steam Winter Sale’s coming to an end this Friday (at 2 AM CST to be precise), which means there’s not a massive amount of time left to decide what to get, if you’re still in that stage. To hopefully make that decision easier, we’ve compiled the following list of deals we think are worth a look at.

Now, everyone has their own preferences when it comes to genres and prices, and this list won’t be able to satisfy every variable. Still, we hope that this list will be of some use nevertheless.

Hitman: Blood Money (RM5.25; 75% off)

Before 2016’s episodic Hitman came out, 2006’s Hitman: Blood Money was considered by many to be the best of the series. For a mere RM5.25, you’re getting access to a world of assassination that still holds up pretty well today. Also, unlike the newest game, it lets you start a mission with a sniper rifle in a briefcase, which is simply cool.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (RM11.20; 80% off)

The cover system and aiming can feel a tad unresponsive or loose respectively, especially compared to The Phantom Pain, but Ground Zeroes’ base is still worth a visit, especially at 80% off. Some criticized the game’s length and its price when it originally released, but at this price the package is harder to say no to, especially considering the replayability involved.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (RM4.99; 75% off)

Fantastic first-person melee combat and fun Source-powered physics antics from the makers of Dishonored. From a personal perspective, the satisfaction of the swordplay here simply puts Dishonored to shame.

Rainbow Six Siege: Starter Edition (RM20.99; 40% off)

Some might suggest simply getting the full version instead (also 40% off at RM89.40), due to the longer grind for Operators involved with the Starter Edition. But if you can deal with that and wouldn’t mind sticking to the four you can instantly unlock for a while, this is a pretty cheap way of getting into a pretty sweet multiplayer experience that’s still going strong. Also, the DLC is exclusive to buyers for one week, but become available to everyone else later for free.

Resident Evil 7 (RM55.20; 20% off, plus base price cut)

20% isn’t necessarily something to get excited about, but Resident Evil 7 also received a permanent price cut that brings the base price to RM69. For a main entry in the Resident Evil series that only came out last January, it’s a pretty impressive price, and the 20% discount makes it even more attractive.

The Witcher Trilogy (RM55.02; 67% off)

You can get The Witcher 3 for half off at RM51.99, which is a pretty good deal for an open-world RPG that’s so well loved. Or, you can get The Witcher Trilogy for less than RM10 extra and get the first two games as well.

New World Collection (RM15.07; 75% off)

Brilliant World War 2 shooter Day of Infamy saw a better price reduction not too long ago, but this bundle that includes its modern predecessor Insurgency makes the loss of that sting less. The latter boasts a higher population despite its older age, especially for Asian PvP servers, but Day of Infamy with its scary fire support and scarier flamethrowers is still very much worth a look at.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut (RM5.69; 85% off)

Only RM5.69 for a cyberpunk RPG with satisfying choose-your-own-approach gameplay and robo-hand smackdowns. The boss fights still aren’t magnificent even after the Director’s Cut changes, but the rest of the sizeable package more than makes up for that shortcoming.

Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director’s Cut (RM6.20; 80% off)

Considered by some to be the best of the modern trio of Shadowrun RPG games, Dragonfall features a 20-hour-plus long campaign set in a world where cyberpunk co-exists with magic. Sounds cool? It sure does.

Tekken 7 (RM79.50; 50% off)

The price isn’t likely to blow minds as much as Resi Evil 7’s does, but 50% off for a triple-A fighting game that released last June? Why not.

Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway (RM9.99; 75% off)

Past sales have seen this tactical shooter refuse to dip below RM10, so this is definitely a good chance to snag it. It’s a World War 2 first-person shooter with a third-person cover system and AI squads to command, and the experience is one that’s still solid and different from most shooters nearly a decade on.

Tales of Berseria (RM63.60; 60% off)

The latest Tales game is one that’s been well-received and had a 50% cut during last September’s Bandai Namco Publisher Weekend Sale. An additional 10% discount only a few months later isn’t bad and provides an even more enticing price for those interested in joining Velvet Crowe on her quest for revenge.

Dark Souls 3 (RM42.50; 75% off)

Another game that was part of the previously-mentioned Bandai Namco Publisher Weekend Sale. It was RM68 then, and now it’s only RM42.50. If the series’ famous punishing difficulty doesn’t scare you, the price shouldn’t either.
