Steam, Steam, The Magical... Application (?)

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Steam for being such an awesome service...provider.

Wall-nut says... SUCK IT ZOMBIES!

There was some deals this week! Let me divulge some info about them for you.

First up there Plants Vs. Zombies. It's only 10 bones. It's a strange tower-defense-ish game. It is well worth that dough! Wonderful graphics, good humor, and addictive gameplay. It doesn't get much better than that.

Then there's their sales they have right now... Defense Grid: The Awakening and Universe at War: Earth Assault are both only $5. That's insane! I've played enough of Defense Grid so far to know that it a good tower defense game with some good challenge to it. It also doesn't look too shabby for a cost-friendly game. It's a little more hardcore than Plants Vs. Zombies (just a little).



These grids require my defense.
























And it's my understanding that Universe at War isn't half-bad either. I haven't really gotten to try it out, but I'm always down for a nifty RTS. Plus it's 5 bucks.

In conclusion...

Do it to it.

Totally agree, Steam is unparalleled when it comes to sales. Nice to see that you're enjoying Defense Grid too, that game is awesome.

The majority of my Steam purchases have cost me less than $20 each. As soon as a game dips down to $10 or better yet $5 it's an instant buy for me.

Isn't Plants vs. Zombies supposed to have something like 40+ hours of gameplay? How can you not buy that at $10? (I sure did)

I thought Defense Grid was enough tower defense for me, but people do seem to love Plants vs. Zombies. Maybe I should give it a shot?
Man, I've wasted so much money on Steam.

I highly recommend Plants Vs. Zombies.

It's really addictive and has a good sense of humor. Two things that I personally love in a game.

I picked up Defense Grid, but now I wish I would have bought Plants Vs. Zombies instead.  I know every seems to love it, but I just can't get into it.

I can totally see how people can get turned off by Defense Grid. It's suuuuuper technical. (Notice the multiple u's). Plants vs. Zombies is definitely a more accessible game.
