It seems like Steam has a new themed sale event every other week, and this week, it’s Strategy Fest. As part of the sale, which started officially yesterday and lasts until 1PM ET on September 4th, you can get deals on a slew of strategy games of all stripes.
Both XCOM games are not to be missed and can be snagged for $16 total, but I’m disappointed to see that Marvel’s Midnight Suns, another Firaxis-developed strategy game (which is far better than it had any right to be and is criminally underrated as a licensed Marvel game, damn it!!), is included in the bundle but not on sale. Also, a bunch of games from the Worms series are on sale for between 60 and 80 percent off if ruining… err… enhancing friendships is more your jam.
Though my gaming plate is full and not likely to be cleared at any point soon, after encountering a certain character in Baldur’s Gate 3, I find myself curious about the games that came before it. Fortunately for me, Steam has included both enhanced editions of Baldur’s Gate II and Icewind Dale as a part of this sale. Despite warnings that playing BG2 now will only end in tears, I am, nevertheless, sorely tempted.
