The RPS Bargain Bucket: Poundland

Super Duper Jam packed bucket this week. All the outlets are clamoring to exchange their SINGLE USE NON-TRANSFERABLE LICENSES for your money, so as usual I am taking up the mantle of great arbiter of value. For constantly updated video game cheapness, head to Here are the games that I am instructing you to consider purchasing this weekend.
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time – £1.50/€2/$2.50
A new weekly feature for the bargain bucket: I’m going list Prince of Persia: Sands of Time at ever decreasing prices, although short of Ubisoft including it free in cereal boxes I don’t think you’ll ever see it at a better price than this. If you bought it last week for about triple the price, then I owe you a hug and some alcohol, but you can rest at ease knowing that your version from GOG is more likely to run well on our PCs from the future, and GFWLGODBBQ isn’t a great service anyway. Warrior Within is available for the same price, but don’t let morbid curiosity get the better of you.
(Euro price is an estimate because there is no easy way to find out the Euro price from the UK. Thanks Microsoft).

Twin Sector – £6.47/€6.97/$7.47
John thinked “It’s a muddled bag of some splendid ideas and some fun glove action. But it irritates too often, whether it’s by glitching, crashing or ruining yet another fun puzzle with a sodding Tracer.” I like splendid ideas and gloves, but dislike glitches, crashes and ruin, so I’m conflicted. Demo here.

Adventure Shop 3rd Birthday Sale – 50% off
*Use wallet on internet*
“Sorry, I don’t know how to do that.
*Use credit card on internet*
“I don’t think that’ll work”
*Use credit card on computer*
“That won’t fit in there”
*Use credit card number on computer*
“Sorry, I don’t know how to do that.
Rinse and repeat.

Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind [GOTY] – £3.25/€5/$5
I wasn’t sure whether to pick Morrowind, Oblivion or Fallout 3 as the headline deal here. In the end I settled on Morrowind out of the three because it has the greatest percentage discount, but it’s my least favourite of the three. Bethesda are the daddy when it comes to contemporary big open RPGs, and their last three games are all real standouts. For all the huge differences between them, they play rather similarly. You receive a quest, you wander around doing whatever you want, do a fighting with some baddies, then at some point you complete the quest. RULE: You’re not allowed to buy these if you have them on disc already you silly billy. INSTUCTIONS: Discuss the mods which make these games feel like excellently designed games in addition to already being excellently designed worlds.

Deal of the week
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat – £7.47/€9.97/$9.97
A similar offer was about a while ago, but it’s a little cheaper now, and I understand the loyalty discount now (assuming it works the same on GamersGate as it did on impulse). To qualify for this discount you need to already own either of the other two ESS TEE AAY ELL KAY EEE ARR games, which are helpfully also discounted this week, Shadow of Chernobyl (£4.97/€4.97/$9.97) and Clear Sky (£3.18/€3.98/$3.98). You don’t need to own them from GamersGate though, either disc or digital from anywhere else should work too. Bizarrely, there is no extra-discounted “S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Trilogy” bundle, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a retail bundle of all three at some point. Wot Jim thinks about Call of Pripyat right here.

Also of note:
Team Fortress 2 – £6.99/€9.99/$9.99 and free to play this weekend
Iron Grip: Warlord – £2.95/€3.50/$4.95
Eufloria – GamersGate Loyalty Discount
