Fallout 4 Season Pass Tops Steam Top 10

Valve lists the following nine games as the 10 bestselling titles on Steam for last week. It probably bears repeating that the main reason the Fallout 4 Season Pass appears here is because it's been announced that the price of this will jump by 66% on Tuesday, in case you want to take advantage of the lower price before then:

  1. Fallout 4 Season Pass
  2. Tom Clancy’s The Division
  3. XCOM 2
  4. DARK SOULS III Deluxe Edition
  5. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  6. Street Fighter V
  7. Grand Theft Auto V
  8. Cities: Skylines - Snowfall
  9. XCOM 2
  10. Firewatch

Out of the Blue

So tonight is the Oscars. As I've mentioned in the past, I don't see many movies in the theaters, so having seen two best picture nominees (Mad Max: Fury Road and The Martian) makes me far better informed this year than in the past. I usually don't watch the broadcast of the awards, and tonight is not likely to be an exception, as I will probably be watching the Heroes of the Storm North American Spring Regionals, which is trading one thing that some people would never be caught dead watching for another. But hey, different strokes for different folks, amiright?
