Piracy themed deals set sail on Steam

International Talk Like a Pirate Day falls on Sept. 19. To celebrate, Steam is offering games with a Jolly Roger theme at a discount. (Can we begin this with more of an 'aaargh matey' theme please? - Ed)

Games such as Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Age of Booty, Caribbean, Zombie Pirates and Pirates of Black Cove are being offered at discounts ranging from 33% to 85%. (Too dry. Come on. Where are the 'shiver me timbers,'?  Where are the salty puns - Ed)

Also on offer is the classic Monkey Island Special Edition Bundle, down from $14.99 to $3.75. (This is where you make some amusing allusion to 'buried treasure', surely? - Ed.)

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a parody holiday, first introduced in 1995. It has spawned various cultural memes and commercial opportunities (Your career in 'deals' copy-writing is most assuredly sunk - Ed.)

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
