Finding deals on games
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 July 2013, 3:21 am
I was somewhat annoyed at Steam recently. I have a wish list with them, and signed up for e-mail notifications in case a game on my wish list goes on sale. It turns out that function isn't working 100%, but they only told me that after I made a support ticket complaining that I had seen a game from my wish list on sale but not received any e-mail. While I do like the Steam promotions, it isn't actually all that easy to check which games are on sale. So I was quite happy when a reader sent me a link to a website he runs called Killer Game Deals.

Killer Game Deals is based on an app that crawls Steam, Amazon and a lot of other digital (and some physical outlets) for daily/weekly/general game deals. You can then see all those deals on that website, put on filters by system, vendor, or type of game, or even sign up for an e-mail alert if you are waiting for a specific game to go on sale. I haven't tried out the latter, but the rest seems to work perfectly well. It was easier to find Steam promos on Killer Game Deals than on Steam!
