Steam

Steam’s Halloween Sale

Steam, like always, has shown up to this sale in an attempt to showcase that they are king of the sales. They’ve done that again. You just have to keep showing off Valve, and that’s why we can never leave you.

I’m not going to type out this list because I tried that, took a break 1/3 of the way through and realized it was just ridiculously long. A few games however are in cheaper bundles, like Lucius and Burn, Zombie Burn! so look out. I’ll highlight the 10 deals I like the best:

Bundle Stars

Bundle Stars’ The Bloodbath Bundle

This bundle works well if you were eyeballing games like Zombie Bowl-o-Rama or The Void in the Steam sale. These games have all been in sales in different bundles, with the exception of maybe Clutch, but if you are itching to pick a handful of solid Halloween themed games, this would be a great place to start.

Total Bundle Price: $2.48

  • The Void
  • Clutch
  • 99 Levels to Hell
  • Zombie Bowl-o-Rama
  • NecrovisioN
  • NecrovisioN: Lost Company

Halloween

Indie Royale’s The Halloween 2 Bundle

An interesting bundle of games. If you are looking at 2 or more, the bundle is probably more than worth it. If not, it gets trickier to justify. Many have been in other bundles of some form so double check to see if you haven’t purchased it in some other way.

Total Bundle Price: $5.05 (Price Fluctuates Based on Average)

  • Dead Hungry Diner
  • Organ Trail: Director’s Cut
  • Overcast – Walden the Werewolf
  • Alien Zombie Megadeath
  • eXceed 2nd – Vampire Rex
  • Darkfall: Lost Souls
  • Nightmares From the Deep: the Cursed Heart
  • Rise of the Ravager

VODO

Big Brother Bundle

This is the cheapest place by far to get I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream. That makes the bundle a bit more special. Otherwise, this is a bundle mostly geared towards protecting the rights of the internet against hot topic issues like SOPA and other bills.

Pay What You Want Level:

  • I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream
  • Immortal Technique – Surveillance EP (Music Album)
  • Secrecy (Film)
  • Subatomic (Graphic Novel)

Pay More than $2.01 Level:

  • Hacker Evolution Duality
  • Shadows of Liberty

Pay More than $9.33 Level:

  • Schneier on Security (Novel)

Gala

The Indie Gala Halloween Mix

Lots of interesting things going on with this bundle. The lower level really is only good if you want some music while the upper level offers a lot of different games. Of course if you aren’t an Android user, you can practically cut this bundle in half.

Pay More Than $0.99 Level:

  • Nosferatu the Wrath of Malacai
  • Slender Man Chapter 1: Alone (Android)
  • F-777 – System Fix (Music Album)
  • F-777 – I’m So Classy (Music Album)

I've grown up side by side with video games and I've seen it turn into this phenomenon. Of course I also enjoy entertainment in all mediums whether it be film, book or sports. I'm just a huge nerd that loves writing about his hobbies.
