The Steam Holiday Sale Is Back [Deals]

Do you like video games? Do you like, not the water vapor, but the online gaming distribution system? Do like cheap but great games?

If you answered 'yes' to everything above, then you'll like what you read next.

From Dec. 20-Jan. 2, appropriately named the Steam Holiday Sale, there will be daily deals on popular video games, like for instance, today, Dec. 21, Tomb Raider and the Guardian of Light, only $5.10. That's a savings of $9.89(66%). Isn't that a real steal or what? I think so.

Also, there will be big savings on Developer specific games, Indie .... Packs(Indie Fantasy Pack, Indie Fright Pack, etc), along with BIG "Game" Bundles(all Unreal games, all Valve games, etc) for very low prices. That's a lot of savings.

I don't know about you, but I'm going to be broke by Jan. 2, like 5 times over.

So...what you waiting for? Go install Steam(if you haven't already) or go to and get BUYIN'!

Angry Birds Seasons Now On Android [Winter Edition]

Angry Birds is a huge hit on the Android platform, over 7 million downloads strong, just like its iPhone counterpart. No surprise there as Angry Birds just cannot be stopped. And with the eventual release on Xbox 360 and PS3, and soon DS thereafter, the bird-flinging, pig destroying game just keeps growing stronger. And why stop there? Some director(like Uwe Boll) will step up and make a movie about the game. Although, that would probably go horribly wrong as the Boll is known for making bad, and horribly graphically violent movies. Not a good fit. Okay, let's just keep the game 'a game' and nothing more..thanks.

With that said, Rovio Mobile, the developers of the successful game, today released Angry Birds Seasons onto the Android Market and App Store, respectively.

What does that mean? Well, that means you can be enjoying 25 Winter themed levels, but you need be patient, as the first of 25 levels unlocked today, while each additional level unlocking every day up until the big day, December 25, just like an Advent calendar. Isn't that radical? Yes, absolutely!

But that's not all...there's more! With a lot of Android users thinking the iPhone/iPad, etc. Halloween Angry Birds never making the dive to your Droid X, the wait is over! The 45 Halloween themed levels are also included with Angry Birds Seasons. That's just insanely awesome...I'm sure everyone is saying!

Also of note, in the news filled AB newsletter, Rovio has stated that a paid version of Angry Birds will be available in 'later updates'. That's pretty reassuring. And one last tidbit--the devs also mentioned a "graphically lighter" option will be available in the game, as well, you know, that will be focuses on lower-end devices. Pretty nice!

Well..there you have it. Rovio has done it again..great job!
