When Steam Halloween Sale 2017 starts with date leak

We are not long away from Halloween, so we thought it would be a good idea to let you know when the Steam Halloween 2017 sale starts since most of you will be looking forward to this with wallets ready at the waiting. It looks like the start dates have once again been leaked in advance, just as they do every single year so nobody should be surprised with this heads-up. If the rumors are correct, then the Steam Halloween Sale start time will be on October 26 and it will end on November 1.

Above is a flashback to the 2016 sale, so you can see the huge discounts of up to 80% Off on offer and why many gamers save their money for sales like this as you don’t see discounts like that normally throughout the year.

PlayStation VR Bundle best price with free GT Sport

Christmas is coming and everyone is trying to get hold of a PlayStation VR in time as a gift. Now Sony is making that decision easier by releasing a new PlayStation VR bundle that comes with a free copy of Gran Turismo Sport. Now we have picked out two of the best places to go if you want to get your hands on that bundle which are still in stock at the time of writing.

The reason why this bundle is so good is that it is available for usual price of ?349.99, which you would previously only get the main VR headset and no extras. However for the same ?349.99 price you can get lots of extras depending on where you shop. Some examples include:

At GAME’s PlayStation VR Bundle[1] with GT Sport – Comes with PlayStation VR, Gran Turismo Sport Limited Edition, VR Worlds, VR Karts and two months of NOW TV Entertainment package.

Call of Duty WWII ads are funny (in several countries)

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that’s taken over our lives.

Brexiting their lives to return to their roots.

War just isn’t what it used to be. We struggle to avoid it, while playing silly games to incite it. No, I’m not talking about video games.

I’m talking about Twitter. But now that I’ve mentioned video games, have you seen the new Call of Duty: World War II[1] ad? It’s remarkably moving.

There are no flashes, bangs or gratuitous murders. Instead, it’s a tale of a group of people who understand that there’s a need to get back together. Once, one assumes, they fought together.

Then, life slowly dragged them apart. Yet now that Call of Duty is resurrecting a bygone era, so must they. They must reform their squad swiftly.

Think of it as moral conscription. Yes, these are like the first scenes from one of those “Oceans (Insert Number Here)” movies. But look at the versions that Activision is running in different countries and there are glorious nuances.

Here’s[2] the US version. It starts in an exalted high-rise of capitalism. There’s immediate macho excitement.

There’s a bar fight. And there’s a large hot tub in the Hollywood Hills. What could describe the American Dream more appropriately?

Contrast that with the UK version[3]. It starts with pouring rain and a black cab. What could be more English?

A lawyer in court wearing one of those ridiculous wigs? Well, what do you know? And you suppose someone gets thrown out of a pub, too?

Well, this is England. But then there are the French[4]. On principle, there has to be a little more joie-de-sexy.

There are scenes of attempted seduction and even romance, each thwarted by the prospect of war. There’s also a character called the Butcher, who may not quite resemble any butcher you know. Are there even any butchers left in the US?

The French know how to preserve the meaningful things in life. And while the Americans and the English end their ads with a joke involving a child, the French go in a different direction. There’s something to admire in that, too.

Call of Duty: World War II debuts Nov.

3. You still, therefore, have time to assemble a cast of characters for your own band of brothers and sisters. Surely they all have nicknames.
