This Winter season we’ve seen an unusually slow rate of new game releases. Week after week steam keeps the titles coming. That is why I feel Steam deserves their own weekly post. So I present this weeks steam releases that have been announced so far. Please note that Steam is good for popping up games on their list at last minute randomly.
