Valve Discounts Thousands of Games in Steam's Exploration Sale

Valve is joining in the Black Friday / Cyber Monday discount madness, discounting thousands of games in the Steam Exploration Sale, which kicked off today.

The sale runs from today until 7am on December 3 (NZDT), and sees discounts on 5617 titles across Steam. The format of the sale is different to past Steam sales, which had additional, timed discounts in the form of Daily Deals and eight-hour Flash Sales.

Instead, the Steam Exploration Sale is a tie-in to the recent Discovery update, presenting those browsing the store with a curated list of sale titles based on wishlists and past purchases. And endless scroll feature on the sale's homepage lets you keep generating purchase recommendations.

There are still timed discounts, this time called Featured Deals, which offer deeper savings on select titles for a day or two. At the time of writing, these Featured Deals include the likes of The Wolf Among Us at 66% off (US$8.49), The Stanley Parable at 70% off (US$2.99), The Evil Within at 66% off (US$27.17), and Goat Simulator at 50% off (US$4.99), among others.

Picked up a couple of things this morning but mainly waiting for Saturday which is when the major black discounts will happen. Hoping to pick up some good ones or finally get around to getting stuff I've wanted to try but been waiting for them to get cheaper.

This fell at a bad time in my budget for a sale. I'll have to wait for the Christmas sale.
