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: http://www.audio-surf.com/
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. http://www.eetsgame.com/

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.
