Another round up of luvverly gaming deals that are gentle upon that becredit-crunched wallet of yours, courtesy, as always, of Savygamer‘s duke of denarii LewieP. Big games! Big savings! Big, er, dogs, or something.
Call of Duty: World at War – £14.99/€24.99/$24.99
Probably the best COD game since COD4. Still, CODWAW is not really that good. If you enjoyed COD4, but thought “This would be much more fun if it had worse level design, more invisible walls, and more transparent, cheap, game mechanics”, it’s probably right up your street. Some of the weapons sound very good though, and the multiplayer is insanely popular. Here’s my full review.
Elven Legacy – £12.50/$14.95
Somehow Ino Co seem to end up on pretty much every Bargain Bucket. Good for them. This is a turn based strategy affair, and is the sequel to Fantasy Wars. It’s not even been out all that long, kind of surprising to see it so heavily discounted so soon, but we might as well take advantage of it! Demo here.
Telltale games for cheap!
I couldn’t pick just one, so I am listing all of them. Telltale games are 5 years old, and to celebrate, they are selling their games for cheap. Oddly enough, they have also chosen to let Steam undercut buying from them directly. If you want to buy these full seasons, Steam is the cheapest place:
Sam & Max: Season One – £8.49/€14.99/$14.99
Sam & Max: Season Two – £9.49/€17.49/$17.49
Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People: Season One – £9.49/€17.49/$17.49
However, if you want to buy individual episodes, or the Wallace and Gromit or Bone games, you want to head to their website, and use the coupon “247-6LE-8JW-H9Y”. Comes to $5 an episode.
Civilization IV: The Complete Edition – £22.49/€35.99/$35.99
Despite being slightly cheaper for UK gamers to buy this retail, it’s still a cracking deal on Steam. There has been two “Complete Editions” of Civ4 released, one complete, one incomplete. This is the former, and includes Warlords, Beyond the Sword and Colonization. That’s a hell of a lot of game for your money. Nice one Sid. Demo here.
Deal of the Week
Lost Empire: Immortals – £1.99/€1.99/$1.99
I really do like it when you can buy games for less than a Pint. Jim fairly limply suggested looking at the demo back when it came out, and I can’t really offer a more concrete recommendation that that, my copy is downloading as I write this. It is a Space 4X game, and it is from Denmark. Of the top of my head I don’t think I have played any other Danish games, so this is a first for me. I will try to post impressions in the comments before the offer has ended. Trailer looks neat. Demo here.
