I just love Steam sale. 

When games on Steam go on sale, they really do go on sale. I’m talking about prices of video games, some of them new and recent, others, critically acclaimed classics slashed to as much as 90% off! 

Like recently, Steam held a Warner Brothers games division sale, slashing titles from the Lego and Batman franchise by as much as 75 off the usual price. The popular Batman Arkham franchise, consisting of Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Arkham Origins, was just 5 dollars each! I quickly swept all three games in addition to the recent Arkham Knight at 13 dollars. All in all, I bought 4 full games for less than 30 dollars! 

It’s a deal that cannot be missed. Simply irresistible, especially when you know that these are the games you will play eventually when you done with the other titles that you are currently playing. So no harm waiting patiently, adding those games to your wish list and then snapping them up when a sale is on. Just gotta love games on Steam. 

So right now while my pc rig is fairly new, and my games collection relatively sparse, I have no qualms about purchasing and downloading multiple games at one go. Hell, I might eventually face a problem a friend of mine did a long time ago; too many games, too little time to play them all! 

The day I stop gaming, is the day I lose my youth and childhood.

About a month back, on the last day of my examinations for the semester, I remembered a conversation I had with a friend of mine. We were talking about gaming. Specifically we were talking about some of the upcoming games that were about to be released during the summer break. Eventually, it got on to the topic of Mass Effect 3, the final conclusion to the sci-fi epic RPG that I have been dying to play. I played the first two installments and I loved it to death. So it goes without saying that I just had to play the final game to see its conclusion. The game was released months back and I still hadn’t got hold of the game. So eventually my friend asked me when I would eventually play this game and it got me thinking; when will I EVER get to play this game? After a 360 degree turnaround on my summer plans for this year (going to Tunisia and all) I kinda suspect that I may never be able to play this game anytime soon. Finally towards the end, he made a harmless casual remark that somebody is ditching gaming and finally becoming a “responsible working adult’.
