I hope you weren’t planning on buying some games for full price? If you were, sorry, I may be about to ruin your plans. You see, contained within this document are some of the best value gaming deals from around the internet. Read on to find loads of ways to get a lot of game for not a lot of money. Why not visit the website SavyGamer.co.uk if you’d like to hear about even more cheap games.
Really Big Sky – Pay What You Want
Registers on Steam.
This is a brilliant sidescrolling shmup, with a cracking soundtrack and lots of bright lights. You sometimes have to switch from shooting to dodging barriers, or to drilling through rocks. It’s wicked stylish, and it’s got an upgrade system that you can use to upgrade things. Does everything you’d want out of a shmup, and it’s really polished. Easilly worth a couple of quid, I reckon.
Ubisoft GOG promo
Here you’ve got Ubisoft’s entire catalogue on GOG reduced by 60%. There’s loads of Might and Magic games, a bunch of stuff witha Tom Clancy prefix, the Prince of Persia games, the Rayman games, XIII, Beyond Good & Evil and more. All DRM free, just how we like it. I think I’ll be picking up a few of these myself.
World of Goo – £1.39/€1.79/$1.99
The little game about goo that everybody fell in love with is four years old today. As such, the developers have made it cheap. If you’ve still not played World of Goo than you really should fix that now, and here’s John explaining why:
I’ve seen the broadest beams on the faces of colleagues trying to describe it. I’ve beamed throughout myself. Moving through the four seasons of levels has made me feel just so happy. Happy because of its wonderful atmosphere, and happy because it’s just so extraordinarily good. I adore World Of Goo, I want to show it to everyone I know, I want to use it to convince people that gaming is smart, and witty, and brilliantly original. I’ve run out of ways to say this: It’s beautiful.
Double Fine games for cheap.
It’s probably worth checking to see which is the cheapest in your local currency, because Amazon US & Steam have both got sales on a Psychonauts/Costume Quest/Stacking bundle, and everything discounted invididually. Iron Brigade on Steam is slightly reduced too. What a delightful collection of creative, fun and silly games these are. It’s wonderful to see a developer like Double Fine hitting their stride making lots of smaller games stuffed with new ideas, and I think their recent output is clearly some of their best work. Why not read Alec’s opinions on Costume Quest, Stacking & Iron Brigade.
Deal of the week
Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City – £6.21/€7.71/$9.99
Registers on Steam, and you’ll need to enter a US billing address.
This is an excellent price for just Arkham City, so to get both entries in this series for this price is astonishing value. Consult Alec’s opinions on the first here, and Adam’s on the sequel here. They’re both excellent games, although I think the first was more consistently enjoyable. I wonder what Rocksteady are working on now.
