Also included in the Lunar New Year Sale: An honest-to-Gabe meta-game. Instead of presenting you with the stock Recommendations queue, Valve has built out a choose-your-own-adventure starring a monkey. It’s pretty simple—tell the monkey to drive, and Valve recommends driving games—but a bit more interesting than the Winter Sale at least.
There’s no Flash or Community Choice sales though, and presumably Valve is sticking to its new “Sale prices stay the same for the entire duration” policy—thus the “Highlighted Deals” moniker on the front page instead of the old “Daily Deals.” In other words: If you see something you want, get it. It’s not going any lower before the sale ends.
As I said, the sale runs from now until February 12 at 10 A.M.
