The RPS Bargain Bucket: Indie Movements

By Cassandra Khaw on December 14th, 2013.

God, it’s been a long week. I’ve written an absurd amount of words and I think I’ve run out of the clever. The best I can do is challenge you magnificent readers to guess if this week’s plushie is just a plushie or a cultural reference of some variety. Questionable humor asides, though, I’m looking forward to next week’s deluge of Wildstar-related content on RockPaperShotgun and getting my mittens on Season 2 of The Walking Dead. Being a terrified kid in an apocalyptic world will be lovely. Maybe. In the meantime, enjoy this week’s rather indie selection.  Insert closing wisecrack here.

(P.S:  Navigating geographical pricing is still a bit of a nightmare for me. Hola only seems to go so far. If you require me to make any corrections or have any recommendations on how best to deliver the most accurate numbers, do not hesitate to let me know in the comments. Or over smoke signals. Whichever works best for you.)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: The Classics

By Cassandra Khaw on December 7th, 2013.

Spaghetti Monster, help me. It’s sandbox survival week. Maia? Starbound? NEO Scavenger? Spare time, thy name doth now sit in the same hallowed halls as productivity’s ghost. Seriously, though, as awesome as the eternal fight for a full stomach might be, not everyone enjoys wrestling with hostile aliens for tufts of wheat and plant fibres.  For those of you out there who aren’t keen on civilizing intergalactic no man’s lands, this week’s Bargain Bucket for you. (It’s also for everyone who does enjoy open world sandbox games, but dramatic presentation demands a more personalized touch.)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Post-Turkey Saturday

By Cassandra Khaw on November 30th, 2013.

The Moderately Great S’peedy, cousin to much greater Great A’tuin, may lack the toned physique necessary for carrying worlds but he does come bearing Bargain Bucket discounts. It’s the day after Black Friday and — look, level with me here. Why are you still eyeballing discounts? Black Friday just happened. The world just went into a veritable orgy of slashed prices. Why are you still buying more things? Where are you getting all that money? And is there any way I can convince you to donate some of that cash to the “feed a hungry games journalist today” fund? Jokes aside, here’s this week’s conglomeration of rock-bottom deals. It’s a little sparse but the Moderately Great S’peedy and I hope you find what you were looking for.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Unrelated Words

By Cassandra Khaw on November 23rd, 2013.

Ah, Thanksgiving. ‘Tis indeed the hour of luscious poultry and marshmallow-crusted sweet potatoes, a time to loosen belts and snipe jovially at family members you haven’t seen in years. Sigh. I can’t tell if I’m glad or disappointed that Thanksgiving isn’t practiced here in my corner of the globe. At least this means the Christmas pounds won’t be having playmates. Regardless of whether you’re voluntarily or involuntarily turkey-less next week, you’re welcome to come trawl this week’s — immediate gratification is always satisfying — Bargain Bucket for gloriously underpriced video games.

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Kefkaesque

By Lewie Procter on November 2nd, 2013.

Sorry if I’ve got the grumpy hat on this week. What’s an Avant-Garde Economist such as myself to do when many of the games that have received worthwhile discounts are also the ones that annoyed me for some reason or other? Hopefully there is still something of interest to you in this week’s bargain bucket, and if you’d prefer me to shut up my face, why not pop along to, where I basically never say much at all in the way of opinions. It’s just the bargains. Read the rest of this entry »

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Booze Tales

By Lewie Procter on September 21st, 2013.

Listen up kids, here’s a cautionary tale of The Man Who Drank Too Much Alcohol And Then Had A Hangover And Then Wanted The World To End An Then Had To Write Words About Video Games. Hang on, I think the title actually contained the whole story. Basically I’m doing my best, OK? Leave me alone. I’ll probably eventually feel better, and then I’ll get back to updating, but I’m afraid the selection of cheap games listed here is all you’re getting out of me today.
