SGJ Podcast #269 – Holiday Buying Guide

Open ‘Er Up!

Welcome to this week’s podcast, my friends! This week, Jim, Spaz and I talk about deals. There will be an overabundance of sales this coming holiday season, not just the big ones from Steam, but sale from folks like Fanatical and Green Man Gaming, who’ve just been knocking it out of the park in terms of quality andf quantity of deals of late. We did a ton of research, and we came up with the list below. These games — all full releases, we didn’t include early access games — should be at the top of your shopping wishlists if you don’t own them already. They’re also linked to their corresponding Is There Any Deal — which, if you’re not using, you’re a fool — pages, so you can see the stores that sell them, price history and the like.

Next week we’re off for the Thanksgiving holiday week here in the US, but join us on the morning (for us) of the 27th when we talk to the folks behind Interstellar Rift! If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to hit us up below, email us at or hit us up on the forums. Thanks for listening, and we hope you enjoy the show!

  1. Why in the world isn’t Star Fleet Armada Rogue Adventures doing better? Everyone in the podcast loved it. Brian rated it highly. I put in a positive review. Maybe the number of people who remember Star Flight or Star Control is shrinking too fast

  2. Well here is news from that developer:
    I am currently in the final stages of alpha testing on my next game, Settlers of Orion. It’s basically a board tile type game similiar to Settlers of Catan but with a space theme. I should have the game up on steam in the next 30 days and I am looking for a handful of players to do some beta testing for me. I will mostly be looking for feedback on the game mechanics, and of course any bugs that may come up.

Chime In!
