Steam Winter Sale kicks off, ends 2nd January

Steam Winter Sale 2014

Thousands of games are now on sale for the next two weeks.

You were warned, you had time to shut down your internet connection to save yourself from the temptation of emptying your bank account on games you won't play for another 3 years. But, you didn't, did you? Well, don't worry, neither did I, so let's ride out this 'horrible' Steam Winter Sale together.

It's all happening right now and ends on 2nd January 2015, so that's a whole two weeks of bargains up for grabs.

By now you'll know the format of Steam Sales, but just in case you're new to all this, here's a heads up; from now until the sale ends there are thousands of games on sale, and then there are deals that change every 12 hours, and every day or so; these are the deals you want to keep an eye on, as they tend to be the cheapest ones.

If you have some games on your wishlist and they're in the sale right now you could pick them up cheap, sure, but just wait and see if they end up in one of the 12-hour or daily deals, you could get a better bargain.

Some examples of games on sale right now include Dark Souls 2 for £11.09, Monaco for £1.07 (get it, it's brilliant), and Civ V for £4.99. All pretty low prices, but there are sure to be much better deals over the next couple of weeks.
