Steam’s annual Holiday Sale introduces new metagame

This year Steam is really switching things up with its annual Holiday Sale.  As usual there are tons of great deals for good games at almost rock-bottom prices, but on top of that they are also doing a sweet metagame.

Each day there are several achievements attainable for several different games.  Its an interesting way to get people to buy the games and a great reward for those who have already bought them.  Anyone who gets the special achievement will receive a gift on Steam that is redeemable or tradeable.  You may get a lump of coal, but this gives you entry to a sweepstakes they are doing next month where you could win every game on Steam.  Pretty intense.  In any case, get to playing and buying!

About Ryan Saul

Hailing from Portland, OR I work by day and blog by night. I like to consider myself a video game connoisseur, playing as many new things as I can get my hands on. Its hard to hold me down to one game for very long before I move on to the next big thing. Luckily, that works pretty well in terms of video game blogging.
