Impulse of The Week: Sonic Steam Sale Weekend

Steam got me again… Damn It…

I think my impulsion started with me finding out about steam…. Let me go back and remember….


This past weekend Steam put all of their Sonic games on sale. I already picked up Sonic Generations this past Holiday Steam sale. I got Sonic Generations and Bastion for 15 bucks. Yeah that’s a full retail game and one of the best indie games of 2011 for 15 dollars. Oh and if you’re not american here is the conversions for you.

15 Dollars in US currency =

11.5253 EURO

9.63642 GBP [British Pound]

14.2576 AUD [Australian Dollar]

751.238 INR [Indian Rupee]

1,154.86 JPY [Japanese Yen]


So, I’m hoping you get it now. I’m loving that I can get these classic games for so cheap. Now before you tell me,”Ha look at this noob, he could have totally pirated the game for free”.

And I reply to this by saying. F*** you! I’d rather support the gaming industry by paying for games like this, people like you are the reason we have to worry about SOPA and PIPA. I’d also like to say that I always pay a couple of dollars over the minimum during Humble Bundles.
