In spirit of the upcoming Holiday Season, Audiosurf and Eets are available on Steam for a record-breaking $2.49.  Being the cheapest games available on Steam recently, you might want to check them out - don't miss this opportunity!

Audiosurf: Audiosurf is a game where you can play your music using a car speeding down the symbolic frets of a music-highway.  It's similar to Guitar Hero, only more extreme and to your own music; hell, you could play the game to the soundtrack of The Simpsons if you wanted to!  You can learn more about audiosurf here:

Eets: Unfortunately, none of the GN staff have played this obscure puzzle game yet, but being that it is available for only $2.49 someone will probably try it soon.  The game is a mix of oldskool Lemmings and Rube Goldberg-style puzzle games.  There is a built-in puzzle editor, from which you can release your creations to the public for free download.  According to the Developer, there are currently over 200 user-made puzzles.

Steam has also begun distributing the game Mount & Blade, for only $29.99.  Mount & Blade is an RPG with RTS elements thrown into it.  You can command full-scale armies against (actually Intelligent) AI-controlled warbands.  "Mount & Blade has the most entertaining and well-balanced mounted-combat I've ever seen!" Said Steve "Lelldorianx" Burke, who will be reviewing the game in the coming weeks.  You can check out more about Mount & Blade here (Steam), or at the official website here.

In other related news, Call of Duty: World at War will be released by Treyarch Games on November 11th, available for pre-order now.  Players who pre-order World at War will receive a free-unlockable M1A1 Rifle in-game.  You can learn more about World at War and the rest of the CoD series below, where registrants are also accepted into an open-beta until the release.

Red Alert 3 by EA Games (RTS)
