The Barclays Premier League season thus far has been ridiculously entertaining and full of its fair share of twists and turns. But now it’s time to set your sights on New Star Soccer 5, one of my personal favorite indie sports games of the last year. In New Star Soccer 5, you are a celebrity soccer player just starting out and trying to work your way up the team ladder. As you work to become part of the first team, you also have to learn to balance your personal and work lives and make clever purchases so as to improve your stamina rather than impair it. Or you can just fuck everything up and take steroids, your choice, dude.
Anyhow, if the game sounds fun to you — which, believe me, it is — then head on over to the New Star Soccer website and punch in the code XMAS50 to get 50% off (“Simply log in to your account page and click “Upgrade to premium” or “Increase matches” then use the discount code XMAS50 on the payment page.”). In other news, the game will be coming to iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 7 as well. We’ll keep you up to speed on that!
