Steam Summer Sale Picks How do I determine what goes into my picks articles? Well, for one… I look for the deals… Normally I will not say anything about something that is not at least 30% off.

Fast Five Issue 1

Fast Five is a new article feature thing that I am doing. Taking inspiration from Follow Friday on Twitter, today I decided to do a little amplification of things I find that are interesting and worthy of your attention.

Since I have not launched the website yet, I have deiced to pre-publish on Medium to start the ball rolling for this article feature. The content will of course be published on the main Strategy Informer website but for now, I will publish it here.
