Valve have been having a slew of themed sales events throughout the year, with the most recent being being live as of yesterday. The Steam Bash Bash has discounts on "hack-and-slashers, spectacle fighters, and more," and it will run until September 26th. There are also demos and previews of future games.
The Bash Bash is available here. Steam''s taxonomy basically treats all games as subgenres of hack and slash, but also includes character action games and musou games.
Right now, you''ll find Monster Hunter Rise at half price, Devil May Cry 5 down by 67%, and Hades down 40%. God Of War, the PC port of which was relatively recently, has a 20% discount.
While the discounts are limited, I believe this is the primary role these sales play in my life, and this is to remind me that there are so many excellent games in every genre now. I''m not sure why this continues to surprise me.
The ''Demos'' tab is more underwhelming than the discounts, as there appears to be nothing that didn''t already have a demo. The upcoming tab put Undecember on my radar, though, which looks like a grimdark Diablolike with an interesting rune system. Hm.
Is there anything you''d suggest in the sale? Share your delights in the comments.
