10 Games to get in the Steam Summer Sale – Steam Keys

Praise the Sun! The Steam Summer Sale of 2016 delivers us massive discounts for all kinds of games. Indie or AAA, it doesn’t matter; none are safe from the rock-bottom prices dictated by Lord Gaben! There are tons of delectable discounted games – thousands, even – but double edged element in the sale is that it can be tremendously difficult to sift through the slosh of Steam keys to find the true and grand jewels of the industry.

In comparison with the discount and the level of meat in a game, we bring you 10 titles that are just absolutely the most bang per buck; titles that you’ll definitely want Steam codes for. These are hands-down amazing games that are selling right now for $10 or less. Of course, it goes without saying that big AAA games like Fallout, Skyrim, or pretty much any popular title that have low prices will not be mentioned here. They get enough attention as it is, with or without the sale. Instead, these titles are going to be games that you may not even know exist but are damn worth the cash. So, without further ado, here are the 10 gems that you definitely have to grab a Steam cd key for.

Let’s start off with one beautiful game: Croteam’s The Talos PrincipleThis title, while it was well received and has critical acclaim, didn’t do too well in the mainstream market of generic CoDs and GTAs. It is, however, the best puzzle game since the Portal series. It has some of the most astonishing visuals, intricate puzzle designs, and fantastic story for a game in its genre, with a lot of content to boot. It’s currently on sale for $9.99.

2. Transistor Steam CD Key

This is another title that pretty much went under the radar of the mainstream gaming community. Well, while all games on this list are technically those kinds of games, Transistor was up for some honors in the game industry, but missed out against bigger budget titles.

An RPG at heart but built around action at the same time, Transistor has some crazy wonderful elements that focus on the palatable visual aesthete of the discerning gamer. Combat mechanics, fantastic graphics, gravely haunting music, and voiceover work that pay attention to extreme detail, Transistor is one of those titles that you know was made with tons of love. Going at a price of of $4.99, you can’t ever go wrong with it.

Steam Keys Esports: A Quietly Competitive Japan

Since the early days of the the fighting game scene or any scene for that matter, Japan has dominated the rest of the world with their top tier reflexes, advanced gameplay tactics, and superior reads. However, at the dawn of Street Fighter V, a highly anticipated game by the competitive esports community, Capcom announced that there would be no arcades of the game. The company, instead, opted to focus on crane games as their physical arcade games. But this unprecedented event has Capcom exploring the possibilities, and profitability, of the online market by releasing their flagship game on PC.

It’s relatively strange for a Japanese company to even release on PC due to their stance of extreme support for their console gaming industry, as well as being dissuaded by the dangers of piracy for games like Street Fighter. It’s progress.

Apparently envious of the success of MOBAs that have but a single and easily accessible platform, Street Fighter V is going on the same path. But this makes some people worry that the entire idea of “Japan Vs. The World” may become mere historical context all entirely.

Steam Keys: The Japanese Arcade Culture

Aside from the very Japanese trait of training till you can’t train anymore, the arcade culture of Japan is the biggest advantage it had over the rest of the world. Being able to compete in a tense and pressure-packed atmosphere, as well as exposure to all types of players and their diverse playstyles have enable Japanese players to do so well on the narrower-thinking world.

Without and arcade version of SFV, this advantage ceases to exist, with most challenges between players happening only online. This isn’t to throw shade at the concept of getting better at online match play, but there aren’t any stakes involved when combating another through net play. What sort of stakes, you ask? Well, the very idea that single 100 yen you put through the machine of course! That speaks volumes of what it feels like to be in an arcade; you don’t want your money wasted.

Surely, the prevalence of netplay in SFV will greatly make the game, and the genre, much more competitive and accessible to everybody else in the world. Secrets in Japanese gameplay will no longer remain secret. But this does foreshadow an end to an era.

Street Fighter V is now available online and at retail stores. For the best deals on Steam redeem code and cheap steam games, check out our Steam Keys section on PlayerAuctions.

Steam Keys Esports: Daigo & Co. Dropped by Mad Catz

It has recently come to light that Mad Catz is taking a different direction with its company and may drop top tier fighting gamers Daigo Umehara, Mago, Tokido, and others, who are top Street Fighter players in the world, from company sponsorship. Rumors have it that the company is in dire straits at the moment and is in need of all of its partitioned budgets to be focused on a solitary project.

Steam Keys Esports: The Company’s Direction

Not only that, but Mad Catz has recently announced that it will be laying off 37% of its staff in order to support its new hierarchy. With another former Mad Catz sponsored fighting gamer, Poongko, signing off on DoTA’s Team Secret, the Mad Catz hullabaloo is just further being amplified.

Daigo Umehara, one of the most, if not the most, successful individual esports athlete has been sponsored by Mad Catz for an extremely long time. Along with his contemporaries, Tokido and Mago, they are only three of the Fighting game gods of Japan that will be without any financial backing if their contracts are not renewed. The players themselves have stated that their initial contracts will end or have ended this March of 2016 and are unsure of their future with the company.

Steam Keys Esports: The Future of the Mad Catz Gods

If worse comes to worst, they will be forced to part ways with Mad Catz, however there won’t be any real difficulty in finding some other to sponsor them. Like what was earlier stated with Poongko, many Moba esports teams have been opening their doors to professional fighting gamers and they may well be picked up by other prolific teams such as Evil Geniuses, Red Bull, Razer, or maybe even Invictus Gaming. There is no shortage of teams that are willing to sponsor three of the best Street Fighter players in the world, it’s all a matter of what they will choose.

It’s in my opinion that this is going to be a grave error that Mad Catz will regret in the near future if they do not renew the contracts of their players. While the company may be flogging at the moment, it’s been famed for sponsoring Daigo Umehara and his fellow gods, and would do itself a disservice in letting that distinction go. Nothing is set in stone at the moment, so we’ll wait for further developments on that front.
