Thought there wasn’t gonna be another big Steam sale for a bit? Think again. The Steam Lunar New Year sale just kicked off, and it runs until Feb 12th. You can discover new games through a cute themed text adventure. Or you can buy nothing at all if your wallet—like mine—is still tired from the last sale.
Steam’s big winter sale included an alternate reality game that... really wasn’t. After following a rather unsatisfying breadcrumb trail, players unlocked a Steam badge titled “Red Herring.” Very funny, Valve. Now, though, joke’s on them.
Shortly after the big Steam winter sale kicked off, intrepid users started sleuthing around, believing that they’d latched onto some kind of alternate reality game (or ARG, for short).

If you check Steam, you’ll notice that the big Steam winter sale kicked off today. It’s got a couple good deals, a bunch more alright ones, and... that’s kinda it.

It is possible to “beat” the Steam summer sale Monster Game. You’ve just got to be willing to bend the rules.
You know, I thought that getting a young princess through her final year before her coronation wouldn’t be too tough—even with all the court intrigue, invading armies, and economic issues. I was wrong. She died… a lot.
The best conspiracy theory in gaming this week just might be that Valve fixed the game they built around their infamous Steam Summer Sale. Or the community figured out how to rig it themselves. Or something. Something crazy.

Happy Thanksgiving! Skyrim is $7.50 on PC today. Sleeping Dogs is $5. So is Rogue Legacy.
Now through November 1st, Steam has discounted a fairly large selection of digital games in honor of... whatever they don't really need an excuse. Most of the games on offer have at least some kind of tenuous tie to themes relevant to Halloween, but you may be scratching your head at a few of the inclusions.
