This isn’t awkward.
There are three more days on the current Humble Warner Bundle, which has recently updated with a new bulge. Right now for as little as a cent you can get yourself Batman: Arkham Asylum, FEAR 2: Project Origin, FEAR 3 and Lord Of The Rings: War In The North. Make that a dollar for Steam and Origin keys, and bump it up to beat the average – currently around $4.75 – and you’ll add in (deep breath): Scribblenauts Unlimited, Batman: Arkham City, FEAR, Mortal Kombat: Arcade Kollection, Guardians Of Middle Earth + DLC, Lord Of The Rings Online: Steely Dawn Starter Pack, Gotham City Imposters: Professional Kit, and some skins for the not-included Batman: Arkham Oranges. Good lord. Apparently worth around $225, so that’s a touch cheaper. Scribblenauts is a ton of fun, and it’s a great way to pick up the two good Arkham games if you haven’t. The rest is icing, apart from Imposters, which is a bit of fluff that got stuck to the cake.
Meanwhile the Humble Weekly Sale has a selection of bitComposter games. Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers, Galaxy On Fire 2: Full HD, Jagged Alliance: Classics, and the brand new Thunder Wolves, yours for pay-what-you-want. Make it $6 or more and you also get Jagged Alliance: Crossfire, and one of Adam’s favourites, Expedition: Conquistador.
Finally in Humbleland, today’s Store sales put the adored FTL at just $3.39, all the Red Faction games at $11.99, Limbo for $2.49, and The Binding Of Isaac at a tiny $1.99.
Green Man Gaming currently has a voucher code for snipping 25% of the price of some games. This gives you a bargain way to get the absolutely superb Lego Marvel Super Heroes, FINALLY out in Europe, for just £18.75. Or Batman: Arkham Orangejuice for £30. Although that’s a bit arse. Just head here, pick a game, and stick GMG25-C8FGA-VFPGI in when you’re checking out.
GMG also have some rather snazzy prices on Telltale games. 75% off most of their stuff. In amongst the utter dross of Jurassic Park and Law & Order: Legacies, there’s some stuff that’s definitely worth grabbing. Strong Bad’s Cool Game For Attractive People at £5.49 is a must, and Sam & Max: Season 3 is where the series finally finds its feet and gets good, and that’s just £6.24. Five episodes in each. Avoid the earlier S&M series, and certain dodge Back To The Future. More middleground is Tales Of Monkey Island, again at £6.24. Sadly, where Telltale have really come into their own is with their recent Walking Dead run, and that’s still full price. Although you can get 10% off the just started season 2.
Payday 2 has to be one of the surprise hits of 2013. Even the developers were taken aback. And it’s only going to sell kerbillions more copies as this weekend it’s 40% off on Steam. That brings it down to £14.99, or £44.99 for four copies.
Also in the Steam weekendy discounts is Skullgirls, which is rather heavily discounted to entirely free for the next couple of days, and then you can carry on playing if you fork over £7.99 (33% down). Kerbel Space Program is down 40% too, making it £11.99. The biggest discount is Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures, which is 50% for just over another day, now £5.99.
Deal Of The Week goes to Get Games’ price on Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger. It’s just a tiny £5.03, and it really is one of the games of 2013. For a series that never really caught fire, this fourth game in the series rebooted the concept, and added in a wonderful sense of humour, and some really fantastic first-person shooting in a genre that’s woefully lacking. John demanded you buy it back in May, when it was but £12. Now there’s no excuses whatsoever. Don’t miss out on a properly entertaining game.
