    Some great Steam deals today, and a good effort by you, @RedSwirl, waiting for that final price drop on FS.

    It’s been a good sale thus far for strategy titles in general. Men of War: AS for 7 smackers yesterday or the day before, RUSE for a tenner today, as is Supreme Commander 2. Surely a few Squaddies would find those interesting.

    Another suggestion for @feenwager would be Hitman: Blood Money. Bit trial and error’y, but remarkably satisfying. Filled to the brim with dark humour and a terrific sense of place. For some reason, and maybe coming under fire for being somewhat contrarian, but where the NPCs of Assassin’s Creed felt like automaton, the Hitman world’s citizenry seemed far more alive. And Agent 47…I mean, you cannot find a more bad-arse bad-arse than him.

    Available on PC, 360.

    Oh, and I’ll throw in Mini Ninjas, too. The game for people who like Zelda-esque romps, but want something a little different. Funnily enough, I read it was a game IO Interactive made because their usual fare was far too dark, depressing and violent to take home and play with their young families. Highly recommend Mini Ninjas.

    Available on PC, Mac, PS3, 360.

    Happy 4th of July, US comrades.

    @scribl Oh, I know you’re down for it. It just seems a hard sell to a lot of people, especially with the baggage Dead Man brought along. Everyone seems to be complaining of shooter-burnout, and let’s be honest, if it’s not a lively colourful blockbuster-esque TPS like Uncharted, I foresee it being thrown into the “dull, depressing” basket. When it drops, let’s yarn! I stand by those two being the most interesting protagonists we’ve seen this generation.

    Incidentally, I want to put forward Mini Ninjas as a future squad mission. Totally under the radar, but one of the tightest and most beautiful games of last year. Who would have thought such a fun little gem could come from tried and true “murder simulator” creators!
