Are you the type to say “Extra cheese” during a food order?

Is cheese the reason why you won’t go vegan?

Are you on a first-name basis with the employees at your local cheese shop?
  • If you answered yes, then this seasonal challenge is for you!
  • Is your love for cheese more subtle than these extreme cases? Well, this challenge is for you also :P
THE CHALLENGE:

Express your love for cheese by slapping on the Steep backpack sticker “In Tartiflette we trust” and taking an awesome filter-less photo with it on! Make sure to tag #SteepPhotoMode and #SteepGame so that we can appreciate them!


What is Tartiflette? Tartiflette is a dish from Savoy in the Alps, made with local reblochon cheese, potatoes, lardons, and onions. For some extra flavor, you can find some more cheese in-game, in the Alps! 🧀


We’re looking forward to seeing your love for cheese on the slopes!

Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Craig Pearson)

It never ends. First there are the Xmas sales, full of gaming turkey for me to fill up on. Then my aunt showed up with Lee Carvallo s Modern Warfare. And now, post-New Year, the Epic Game Store has just thrust Darksiders Warmastered Edition, Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, and Steep into my arms. They re free from now until Jan 9. I hope the sales are still on in the real world, as I m going to need a new hard-drive.

The Long Dark

Holy macaroni it's the final Five of the Best of the year! This is our weekly series where we sprinkle some love on the overlooked parts of games. We've talked about potions, caves, hands, shops, hubs, maps, mountains and many more. There's a Five of the Best archive if you fancy a butcher's.

Snow! I wonder about snow. Hardly any falls where I live so whenever it does, everyone gets very excited for it. The ugly grey concrete we see every day is hidden under a fluffy white blanket, as if to say, "Don't worry about all that stuff, unless of course you walk into it, but go out and do something else instead. Be with friends! Be with family! The trains don't bloody work anyway." So the country grinds to a halt and we all rush outside to slide down hills on sledges, baking trays, dustbin lids, plastic bags - anything we can find. There's no thought for safety as people plummet down, careering into people walking up - I once saw someone perform a whole impromptu somersault - and we all return home at the end of the day with bruises and a spot of hypothermia. It's a great day out.

So when I see snow in a video game, the same butterflies of excitement flutter around inside me. But I wonder, is it the same for those of you who live where it snows a lot? You must see so much you are sick of the sight of it. Do you like snow in games or does it give you nightmares? Do let me know!

Come back the following day to check out the next reward.
 
  • We're sharing a Crazy Fun Fact news bit, highlighting the best player records or doing a shout-out to our amazing Steep community! Who had the best airtime? Who won the most SWT? Who’s had the best time playing coop? Which online community are we incredibly thankful for? So many questions… tune in on the 29th for some answers!
