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

By | 12/22/2016

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 hail@spacegamejunkie.com or hit us up on the forums.

    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.
