Steam Halloween sale begins and promptly overwhelms the service, Condemned: Criminal Origins arrives on Steam for the occasion


It’s almost Halloween, and that means it’s time for Steam to unleash bargains on its spookiest and scariest games, along with a few cute ones. While you might have trouble taking advantage of the sale due to the fact that “the Steam Store is experiencing some heavy load right now,” you should eventually be able to give it your money for anything from the newly-arrived Condemned: Criminal Origins to Double Fine’s adorable Costume Quest.

The sale ends November 1st, at which point candy sales should be your next priority. But until then, here are some deals worth special consideration (prices rounded to nearest whole currency unit).

  • Amnesia – £3 / $5
  • The Walking Dead – £13 / $20
  • They Bleed Pixels – £2 / $3
  • Dead Space 2 – £4 / $5
  • Costume Quest – £6 / $7
  • Lone Survivor – £3 / $5
  • Condemned: Criminal Origins – £5 / $7

That’s really just the start, however. There’s a lot of adventure games and indies also on sale, and don’t even get me started on the mechanical FPS perfection that is the first FEAR game.

If you think there’s something we should particularly look at during this Steam sale, be sure to call it out in the comments. Let no good game be left behind.
