Soon, it shall be naught but a distant memory, and our increased backlogs and holiday theme will be the only things to prove it ever happened. Basically, I’m saying if you have money in your Steam Wallet and feel like splurging, go for it. Hell, if there’s something you want that isn’t a Community Choice, or one of the “Best” deals, go for it. These last two days will be an Encore Sale and feature the biggest discounts for whatever price they were on the day they were featured.

To shake things up, today’s Steam Holiday Sale picks for December 31, 2014 are ones I haven’t recommended yet.

Sadly, this will be our last Steam Holiday Sale update. After all, the Encore Sale runs for two days and there’s only so much I can tell you to buy. I hope you had a wonderful 2014, that your New Years Eve is delightful, and that 2015 goes well for you all.

[GamerTell] 5 Steam Holiday Sale 2014 games to buy: Day 14

[EntertainmentTell] Christine Cavanaugh, voice of Babe the Pig and kid scientist Dexter, dead at 51

Christine CavanaughChildren of the 90s may not have known Christine Cavanaugh’s face, but her voice was a constant. The prolific actress starred in classic cartoons include Darkwing Duck, Ahh Real Monsters and Rugrats. Her biggest film role was that of Babe, a pig who wanted to be a sheepdog. In her Los Angeles Times obit, Cavanaugh’s family praised her imagination, humor and intelligence.

The actress lent a unique voice to countless characters. Chuckie Finster from Rugrats was a scared little kid who could find courage when his friends were in trouble. The Rugrats were always in some kind of trouble, even if it was more perceived than real. In Darkwing Duck, she was Chuckie’s polar opposite as Gosalyn Mallard, the hero’s adopted daughter. Gosalyn was already to fight evil, despite her dad’s concerns. Jim Cummings, the voice of Darkwing Duck, posted a clip from the show to his Facebook page in remembrance.

Tad Stones, the creator of Darkwing Duck, said it wouldn’t have sold without the character of Gosalyn.

“Without Chrissy, Gosalyn wouldn’t have had the balance of sweet and mischievous that made her such a memorable character,” he posted on Facebook.

Cavanaugh’s most acclaimed role came in Dexter’s Laboratory. The tiny mad scientist was instantly lovable, and his weird voice was a huge part of that. Cavanaugh played him a bizarre accent of indeterminate origin. She earned two Annie Award nominations before winning in 2000. Dexter’s Laboratory was one of the shows that propelled Cartoon Network to the cable juggernaut it currently is. It also launched the careers of directors and writers including Genndy Tartakovsky, Craig McCracken and Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane.

Rigondeaux survives scare

Guillermo Rigondeaux battled back from two knockdowns to retain his WBO and WBA super-bantamweight titles against Hisashi Amagasa in Japan.

The double Olympic champion from Cuba, who defected and now lives in Miami, looked to be in control for the first six rounds in Osaka but he was stunned by a fine shot to the chin in the seventh and went down again before the end of the round, albeit claiming to have slipped.

Rigondeaux was giving up more than six inches in height to Amagasa, who had dropped down a weight to challenge him, and the Japanese fighter came out aggressively, trying to make the most of his obvious advantage.

But Rigondeaux found a length he was comfortable at and all appeared well until the seventh when Amagasa caught him flush on the chin as he was retreating from an attack.

The 34-year-old was up quickly but, despite there being less than 30 seconds on the clock when he hit the canvas, he was down again before the seventh round bell, this time landing flat on his face after a flurry of Amagasa punches.

Rigondeaux (15-0) was soon back in command as the eighth round opened and he dropped Amagasa midway through the 10th, with his lanky opponent suffering bad swelling around the eyes as well as what looked like a possible broken jaw or cheekbone.

He continued his dominance in the 11th as the swelling worsened and Amagasa (28-5-2) was eventually forced to retire on his stool before the final three minutes.

Rigondeaux was well on top on all three cards when the bout was stopped, leading 107-99, 107-99 and 105-101.

Batson, Cram, Peters honoured

Brendan Batson: Honoured for services to football

Brendan Batson: Honoured for services to football

Brendon Batson, Steve Cram, Dame Mary Peters and Wendy Sly are among the sporting figures who feature in the New Year Honours list.

However, speculation that England rugby great Jonny Wilkinson was set to receive a knighthood has proved incorrect.

Former West Brom defender Batson, a pioneer for black footballers in the 1970s, has worked for the Professional Footballers’ Association and more recently has advised the FA on equality and football development.

Previously an MBE, he will receive an OBE for services to football and said: “When we look at the way things have evolved over the years as a whole, I am very pleased with the development of black players.

“But there is still a long way to go to address the lack of representation in coaching, management and governance.”

Former 1500m world champion Cram has been made a CBE in honour of his work as chair of the English Institute of Sport (EIS).

“It’s really fantastic to have this recognition, especially all these years after I stopped competing,” said Cram.

“A large part of my journey since then has been the EIS and we have put a lot of things in place to give support to our Olympic programmes.

“We realised we needed a sports science and sports medicine-based arm to look at the little things that make a difference to winning.

“I believe it has had a positive effect for elite sport right across the country.”

Peters, from Northern Ireland, won gold in the pentathlon at the 1972 Olympics and was made a Dame in 2000.

She is now made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour for services to sport and the community in Northern Ireland.

And Sly, who won silver in the 3,000m at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, receives an MBE for services to athletics.

Britain’s FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce, from Northern Ireland, receives an OBE for services to football.

Boyce was severely injured in a Belfast car bomb in 1972 and said: “I would like to dedicate this honour to the people who kept football in Northern Ireland going through the many, many difficult years.”

Crewe’s long-serving chairman John Bowler is to be named an MBE and former Portsmouth defender Linvoy Primus receives an MBE for services to football and charity.

Margaret Aspinall, the chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, has received a CBE, along with another prominent campaigner Trevor Hicks.

England women’s rugby team lifted the World Cup in August and two members of the side are honoured.

Vice-captain Sarah Hunter and prop Rochelle Clark, who is England’s second-most-capped player, both receive MBEs.

Hunter said: “It’s a massive honour to be recognised in this way. As a team we have enjoyed incredible success and I’m so proud to be a part of that.”

Paul Murphy, a past chairman and president of the Rugby Football Union, receives the British Empire Medal.

And David Collier, who stepped down as chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board last summer after a successful 10-year spell, receives an OBE.

There is an MBE for boxer Paddy Barnes, twice an Olympic bronze medallist, who won gold medals for Northern Ireland at the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Barnes said: “I am a proud Irish sportsman, a proud sportsman from Belfast and I take great pride in representing everyone in Ireland, north and south, in whatever way I can.

“If my achievements in boxing can inspire others and people can be united through sport, then my efforts will have been worthwhile.”

And there is an MBE in the diplomatic and overseas list for Mark Wood, who lives in Canada but works as coach for the British skeleton team which has achieved gold medals at the last two Winter Olympics.

Kate Richardson-Walsh, the highly regarded captain of the England and Great Britain hockey teams, has been named an MBE.

Edward Gillespie, who was managing director at Cheltenham for 32 years and

Chudinov test for Eubank Jr

Chris Eubank Jr will face Russia’s Dmitry Chudinov as part of the Tyson Fury undercard at the O2 on February 28.

Eubank Jr’s challenge against Interim WBA middleweight champion Chudinov will be the chief support for Fury’s defence of his WBO International heavyweight belt against Christian Hammer.

The Brighton fighter suffered his first career loss last time out against bitter rival Billy Joe Saunders but victory over Chudinov could put him on the road to a rematch, with Saunders set to take on Irishman Andy Lee for the WBO middleweight title early in 2015.

Chudinov is unbeaten in 16 professional fights, two of those in London, and he defended his title for the second time against Frenchman Mehdi Bouadia in August.

The card will also see IBF bantamweight champion Paul Butler bid to claim a second title at a lower weight when he challenges IBF super-flyweight champion Zolani Tete.

Butler was due to face the South African in October but Tete broke his hand in training and he went on to instead beat Ismael Garnica on points at the Echo Arena.

Real thing

Promoter Frank Warren said: “It’s been a busy Christmas period, but I’m delighted to secure world title fights for Chris and Paul early in the new year which is fantastic news for them.

“For Chris, it was a close fight against Billy and the loss to a big rival would have been hard to take, but he now has a great opportunity to go straight back into the ring and claim a world championship belt and prove that he’s learnt from the loss and show that he’s the real thing.

“I believe that Paul is a super-talent and I’m especially pleased to deliver him a second and history making world title opportunity against Tete which should have happened in October. He gets the chance now and I’m sure he’ll grab the opportunity with both hands.”

Inoue dethrones Narvaez

Japan’s Naoya Inoue captured the WBO super-flyweight title by stopping Omar Narvaez of Argentina in the second round in Tokyo.

The unbeaten 21-year-old, nicknamed “Monster”, was in control from the start of the bout, putting his 39-year-old opponent to the canvas three times before finishing the contest with a powerful left-hand body-shot that kept Narvaez, who had defended the WBO belt for 12 years,

Khan visits Peshawar school

Amir Khan has visited the school in northwestern Pakistan where Taliban militants massacred scores of children earlier this month.

The 28-year-old boxer, who was born in Britain but is of Pakistani origin, last week promised to help rebuild the damaged school in Peshawar where 148 pupils and staff were killed in the attack on December 16.

On Monday, he made good on his vow to show his support and offer encouragement to children too frightened to return to the military school.

While visiting Pakistan, Khan announced he would be building a boxing academy in the eastern city of Lahore.

Earlier this month, Bolton-born Khan retained his WBC silver welterweight title with a unanimous points victory over American Devon Alexander in Las Vegas.
