After an accidental week’s hiatus, our regular round-up of agreeably-priced videogames to while away a lazy weekend returns. As always, Savygamer‘s marvellous marquis of money-saving LewieP has his hand at the till. This week, a fair few modern classics rethink their pricetags…
Killing Floor – £11.24/€13.49/$14.99
The trailer up on Steam was enough to get my interest. Killing Floor is from the makers of a previous bargain bucket game, Red Orchestra. It certainly doesn’t look all that much like a traditional survival horror game to me, more like a “shootey fun” game, like Serious Sam takes a trip to silent hill. I’m surprised to see any coop horror games turn up on Steam to be honest, going directly up against Left 4 Dead is certainly brave. 25% off when you pre-purchase.
King’s Bounty: The Legend – £17.49/€21.99/$26.99
Not as cheap as it has been, it was £9.29 on GamersGate a while back, but this is still a great price. UK Gamers can get it for £11.99 delivered instead. Alec’s favourite game of last year. RPS Coverage here, and demo here.
Rise of the Triad – £4.01/€4.51/$5.99
Part of Good Old Games Apogee promotion. Use promo code “APOGEE” during checkout to get this price. This game started off life as a sequel to the original Wolfenstein 3D, but ended up becoming something completely different. Probably still worth a look today.
Beyond Good & Evil – £3.99/€4.99/$4.99
A wonderful action/adventure/puzzle/stealth/photo ’em up game from Michel Ancel. You’ve still got time to play it now before the sequel comes out too. Probably the closest to The Legend of Zelda you’ll get on a PC, this games has a brilliant overworld, great characters and locations, interesting puzzles, and bucketloads of charm.
Deal of the Week
Left 4 Dead – £16.19/€17.99/$23.99
Not only is Valve’s coop zombie video game free to play until 5pm (GMT) on Saturday, it is also on special offer this weekend, with 40% off. Alec’s write up of the new survival mode can be read here. RPS Steam group here.
