The RPS Bargain Bucket: Tease Your Credit

I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me, so I’ll keep it brief. I still love you though, so as always this is the cream of the digital crops, the highlights of what the digital merchants across the internet have got to tease your credit card numbers out of you. It’s the Bargain Bucket, and it’s cheap games o’clock. SavyGamer.co.uk has you covered for cheap games across all formats throughout the week.
Frozen Synapse, PC – £12.75/€14.25/$19.50 for two copies
Apply coupon “INDIEPOWER”
Nice that they give you a copy for a friend, so you can play against each other, and even split the cost. Kieron was emphatically emphatic about this in his preview back in April, and I gather the beta has been developing well since then. I’ve not tried this one yet, but I’ve got my eye on it. No doubt it’s lining someone up behind me ready to shoot me til I die.

Puzzlebots – £4.03/€4.10/$4.99
Apply coupon “PUZZLEPAX”
To celebrate PAX, and at the same time make me feel sad I’m not at PAX, Wadjet Eye games have lopped 50% off the recently perma-reduced price of Puzzlebots, making it the cheapest it’s been yet. There’s a trailer here and a demo here to help you make your mind up about it.

Company of Heroes – Discounts all over the battlefield
The Steam prices of Company of Heroes are a bit of a mess, and different combitations of the different bundles are cheapest depending on which region you are purchasing from. Here’s a region specific guide:

UK
To get all of them, buy this:
Company of Heroes & Opposing Fronts – £3.74
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor – £2.49

To get individual games, get this:
Company of Heroes – £1.74
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts – £2.49
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor – £2.49

Do not get the complete pack, as it is cheaper to get the “Gold Pack” and then ToV on it’s own.

Euro
To get all of them, buy this:
Company of Heroes Complete – €11.49

Company of Heroes – €1.99
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts – €3.24
Company of Heroes & Opposing Fronts – €4.99
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor – €8.49

Here the complete pack is the best discount available.

USA
Company of Heroes Complete – $12.49

Company of Heroes – $2.49
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts – $4.99
Company of Heroes & Opposing Fronts – $7.49
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor – $7.49

Here the complete pack is the best discount available.

This series is always implicated in pricing nonsense, what’s THQ up to? I wonder if CoH Online will suffer the same fate? Demo here.

Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse – £14.99/€18.99/$19.99
Series three of Telltale’s episodic Sam & Max’s. I’ve never got on with these, but it is good price for an only recently concluded series of adventures, and I’ve heard that this series is the best yet. Only you can tip my umming and ahhing one way with your opinions. Give them to me.

Deal of the week
King’s Bounty: Crossworlds – £12.74/€16.99 /$16.99
It’s not even released yet and already it hooked Alec enough to have him give it seven thumbs up and a wry smile when he told us wot he thinks. It’s fascinating that we’re seeing such a low pre release price on a game in a series that has already had a pretty solid critical response. The meanies won’t let you preload (yet at least) boo!

Also of note:
Love – Free weekend, details here.
Time Gentlemen, Please! – £1.76/€1.90/$2.65 Apply coupon “lifepreserver”, sequel to the free Ben There, Dan That!.
Discounts from D2D that this SavyGamer post explains sort of. They have some daily deals too. Has anyone successful listed all the leaked discounts for the weeks ahead by url mining? D2D normally slip up there.
Irukandji & Bullet Candy Perfect – Whatever you want. Minimum is $1, but I recommend at least $5. $12 will also get you a preorder for Scoregasm.

Remember to visit SavyGamer.co.uk for all the gaming discounts all the time.
