Spend! Spend it all! Don’t worry about the recession! Games will save the world! Savygamer‘s LewieP has more pixel-based discounts for you good people. You can’t stop him, you know. He’ll keep on finding bargains until either he or the rest of humanity is dead and buried.
King’s Bounty: The Legend – £9.99/€9.99/$9.99
This is a repeat offender in the Bargain Bucket, it seems to keep coming back at low prices. King’s Bounty is a tactical RPG with lots of resource management and other such fun, and is Alec’s favorite game of 2008. A tenner is not far off the cheapest it has ever been available for. RPS Coverage here, and demo here.
Gothic 1+2 – £4.69/€5.36/$7.49 each
I enjoyed Gothic 3 enough to be somewhat interested in the earlier games in the series. If they are anything like Gothic 3, they will have massive open worlds, really open ended story, but be seriously buggy, and kind of dull to play for too long. How have these two games stood the test of time?
Tales of Monkey Island – £21.87/€25.01/$34.95
New Monkey Island games are being made! Not just that, but they are out soon! When you preorder the whole season, you get:
Collector’s DVD at the end of the season, with a special, limited edition cover painted by legendary Monkey Island artist Steve Purcell.
A free Telltale game of your choice
Access to a special Monkey Island section of Telltale’s website
Seems like it might be worth it if you’re planning on getting the full series anyway.
Escape From Paradise – £0.62/€0.71/$0.99
A puzzle game from Big Fish Games, set on an ‘uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean’. It’s down to this price because the sequel is out soon. There is a demo here.
Deal of the Week
Penumbra: Black Plague [Gold Edition] (contains Black Plague and Requiem) – £3.25/€3.75/$3.75
Penumbra: Overture – £2.25/€2.50/$2.50
Penumbra: Collector Pack (contains Black Plague, Requiem and Overture) – £4.50/€5/$5
Really creepy first person horror adventure games, and you can get the full series for not very much money right now. They are very atmospheric, and have a brilliant and immersive interface. Highly recommended at this price. Turn the lights out, volume up and lock your door.
