In case you’d missed all of the orange decorations, cheesy ghosts and spooky spiders lurking about the place, it’s Halloween this Sunday, October 31st. Even if you don’t indulge in the annual eating of candy corn, we’ve got another reason for you to celebrate, thanks to Steam.
The Steam Halloween Sale is now on, and the marketing department carefully avoided any awful “HalloSteam” puns. Instead, they poured all of their time into bundling up some of the most awesome deals we’ve seen this side of Valentine’s Day – in fact, you could say that some of the savings are positively scary!
Let these insane – but deliberately, rationally insane – deals be the one good, pure thing you cling to throughout the dark days ahead. Not sold? What if we told you that for every game you buy, we promise to try to kill a monster. Like maybe a skeleton. In fact, that’s our Steam Halloween pledge to you: Sensible savings and we are going to murder a skeleton.
There’s a whole bunch of stuff on sale – to the point where we’re not going to list every single saving. We are going to point out though, if you live in Australia and haven’t yet indulged in Dead Space 2, now would be a good time. Snag the Dead Space Pack and grab both the original game and the sequel for $16.99. Even if you’ve already got the original, this is too good to pass up: Dead Space 2 by itself is still $34.99 for Aussies, after the 50% Halloween discount. So, um. Yeah. Do that.

Plenty of other bargains – games up to 75% off (hello, Painkiller Complete Pack, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Bundle, Borderlands, Overlord Complete Pack and both BioShock and BioShock 2!), and even the very wonderful Amnesia: The Dark Descent for 80% off.
If you’ve been saving up for some new games – now’s a good time to go splurge. Otherwise you’ll just spend it on confectionery for “trick or treaters” and end up eating it all yourself, right?
