Steam Sale!

Steam, the highly acclaimed digital distribution, DRM, multiplayer and communications platform developed by the Valve Corporation is having a rather impressive sale until January that I'd be remiss in not informing you of.

It's also worth noting that today's "daily deals" [about 18 hours remaining at time of post] include the Obsidian's D&D RPG Neverwinter Nights 2 [including both expansions] for €9.99/$9.99 [regularly €19.99/$19.99] and the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic [$2.50/€2.50] which introduced gamers to The Old Republic era of the Expanded Universe Star Wars continuity which is due to be revisited in 2011 with Bioware's First MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.

NWN2 is new to Steam but I ran it glitch free on a Core 2 Quad under Vista 32 and a GeForce 8800GTS a couple of years back, so I'd not anticipate many compatibility issues with today's hardware. KOTOR on the other hand is about 7 years old at this point and like many games native to older Windows versions; may require a fair amount of tweaking for it to run smoothly on today's systems. This is a good resource to aid you if you run into issues.

Thanks to The Whitehouse for the heads up.

Colonel, at risk of a re-emergence of the ''bubble'', is Star Trek online any good?

@ The Whitehouse - It does indeed look scary. I hope you can find a competant team to play it with.

@ Dahar Master - I've heard good thing about the Spaceflight part, space battles etc. but I've hear the game falls down on the away team side of things. Maybe it's been improved since the first reviews...
