Why would you bother going outdoors into the fierce winds, dark fogs and hot rain just to buy yourself a brand new game, when you can just as easily get it sent down an internet pipe straight into the bosom of your home?
Exactly – it makes no sense whatsoever. It’s because of that actual outdoor grimness that we’re parping a celebratory trumpet in the direction of Steam, online purveyors of downloadable games. They’ve got a sale on at the moment and as far as we’re concerned, top of its pops is Portal 2 for the PC – you can get it for only £6.79 RIGHT NOW. And if you don’t have its predecessor, they come as a bundled pair for just £7.81.
