Today might not be the first day of spring - although you would think it's still the middle of winter with the snow we've been getting in NYC - but 2K is still celebrating the changing of the seasons with a pretty impressive sale.

There aren't all that many price drops to go around, but I think the quality makes up for the lack in quantity. Or just XCOM. Just XCOM being on sale is enoguh. The rest is gravy.

Here's what you can get, and for how much:

Does anything on that list tickle your fancy? Personally I'd jump on XCOM if I didn't already own it (like three times over).

Posted by Rob Rich on December 19th, 2014

The holiday season is in full-swing, which means a whole lot of iOS apps and games are going on sale. A bunch already have, in fact. Naturally this means we're putting together a hand-picked list of the best discounts and sales we can find in order to make your own App Store holiday shopping easier.

Things are already kicking off with an impressive assortment of great titles, and it's only going to get better as we close in on the New Year. So take a peek at what's on sale, and treat yourself a little.

[Updated - 12/20]: Holy moly there were a lot more things on sale than we expected. Over 150 entries are in the list right now, including some rather significant titles like Chaos Rings II, Where's My Water, and Deus Ex: The Fall. We've also updated the list with a devoted Apps section, and that's loaded down with some significant sales on apps like AmpliTube, Fantastical 2, and Launch Center Pro as well. The best part is we're just getting started!

[Updated - 12/22]: As expected, the list just keeps growing. A few things went back up to regular price (boo!), but way more things have gone on sale to make up for it (yay!). We're talking apps like GoodReader and The Hit List, and games like Machinarium and Infinity Blade III.

[Updated - 12/23]: Did the sales stop yet? Yeah, no, no stopping. Today's updates include big price drops on apps like Scanner Pro and Splashtop Remote Desktop. Well, the app side of things, anyway. Game sales are even more crazy, with sales on titles like Republique, XCOM: Enemy Within, and FTL just for starters.

[Updated - 12/24]: Nope, we're still not done!

[Updated - 12/26]: The holidays are over, but the sales aren't. Things have admittedly slowed down a little, however there are still some great games that we've added to the top of the list. Games like Type:Rider and Out There.

Hoplite is one of those games that's as easy to understand as it is to enjoy. It's also one of those games that's about as easy to play well as it is to eat your bodyweight in marbles. But that's why we enjoyed it so much in the first place.

Well, for an extremely limited time - today only, in fact - you can get your hands on this hexagonal roguelike for absolutely free. There's absolutely no reason for you not to do so, seeing as the game is both excellent and doesn't really take up a lot of storage space. Plus there's the whole 'being excellent' thing. I've already covered that, right?

So get your posterior onto the App Store and download Hoplite now, while it's still free.
