Steam Holiday Sale extended, bank accounts looking for shut-off valve

For those of you who have been enduring the daily deals from the Steam Holiday Sale that has drained your wallet consistently for the past 2+ weeks, you will now have to tread through yet more sales and discounts. Valve has announced that they will be extending the Holiday Sale through this weekend until January 7th at 10am PST. So if you missed out on any of the great deals on Hitman: Absolution, Torchlight 2 or Borderlands 2, you may just get another chance to snag them for a nice discount.

By the way, I have to give props to Steam for keeping the sales going for 2 day intervals. There have been times when I thought I missed a good deal because I hadn’t checked the Steam Store for a day, and was pleasantly surprised to find it still on sale. Also, the recently reviewed multiplayer MMO/shooter hybrid Forge is available for half price for a limited time. We gave it an 8.0 out of 10 last month.

Enjoy the Steam Encore Holiday Sale weekend, and be sure to tell your bank accounts it will just be a few more days til the end of the holiday season. To check out the latest deals, head to
