SGJ Podcast #184 – Sales, Gifts and a Look Back at 2016

Let the Sales Begin!

Welcome to the last SGJ Podcast of 2016 y’all! This week, Jim, Hunter and I talk about the just-launched Steam Sales, and what we think are the best deals you should look out for (you’ll need Enhanced Steam for the best experience). We cover both space and non-space games as well, so I hope the list helps! We also talk about our surprises and disappointments for 2016. It’s a long show, but it was a lot of fun.

We’re off next week, but we’ll be back in January with a look at 2017! Check out the calendar for all upcoming shows! If you have any questions or comments, as always drop them below, email us at or hit us up on the forums.

List of Games to Look For on Sale

Steam Sale 2016 Ideas:

Games You Should Get or Gift if Not Owned Already, Must Owns



Excellent Games to Get on Sale if you don’t Already Have Them, Should Own if a Fan of the Genre

    I would like a podcast just devoted to you guys discussing star wars and other scifi movies. Your opinions on the new movie were good to hear.
