The RPS Bargain Bucket: Tides of Time

It’s the weekend, and that means one thing: Publishers reduce the prices of their computer entertainment software for promotional purposes. As always, the bargain bucket is here to show you the best of the bunch. Remember to keep checking SavyGamer for all the cheap games, all the time. I’m even helping you save on your Christmas shopping too. Here’s this week’s offerings:
Commandos Complete – £2/€2/$2.59
Includes (based on squinting at the artwork):
Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines
Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty
Commandos 2: Men of Courage
Commandos 3: Destination Berlin
Commandos: Strike Force
These games tested my patience far too much. To be fair, I’d have been about 13 when I tried the first one, and my men basically died straight away every time. I’m going to assume that’s not the way they are supposed to be played, and my younger self was just impatient. This is the cheapest this pack has been whilst I’ve been paying attention.

Ground Control + Expansion/Ground Control 2: Operation Exodus – $4.19/€3/£2.62 each
The discount comes off immediately. These are discounted as part of the Rebellion promotion, where you can get a load of games for a total of £25.57/£29.25/$40.89. Jim did a retrospective of the first Ground Control, and left it here for us all to read.

Mega Drive Classics – £5.49/€7.49/$7.49 a series
Series 1
Series 2
Series 3
The regular pricing of these classics collections of roms packaged up with an emulator are a little expensive for my liking, but this discount makes it just over 50p per game. If you’d have told my 10 year old self we could download mega drive games onto a computer for that price, my head probably would have exploded. Really I’d want to be able to pick games À la carte and still get these discounts, but that’s not the SEGA way. Series 3 would be my pick, because Ecco: The Tides of Time is rather grand, Alien Storm is a fun scrolling beat ’em up and Golden Axe 2 is a fun scrolling beat ’em up. It’s a shame that it isn’t the Mega CD version of Ecco, for the superior audio.

Deal of the week
Tales of Monkey Island Complete Pack – £3.49/€4.69/$4.99
Sam and Max: Season 1 – £6.22/€7.12/$9.95
Sam and Max: Season 2 – £6.22/€7.12/$9.95
Sam and Max: Season 3 – £6.22/€7.12/$9.95
Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People – £6.22/€7.12/$9.95
Sam and Max: Season 1, 2 & 3 + Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People – £18.72/€21.43/$29.95
So that’d be most of the recent output from Telltale on sale. Whether you’re after everything they’ve done, or just an individual series or two, this is your chance to fill in the gaps in your episodic adventures. You’ll can apparently get a further discount from Telltale if you’ve already bought any of the individual episodes, but having not bought any of the individual episodes, I couldn’t test that myself. This lot have all been discounted individually at some point, but this is the first time, as far as I can recall, that they’ve all been cheap all at the same time. PC and shiny white computer compatible. This discount is being used to promote Telltale’s poker ’em up Poker Night at the inventory, which features Strong Bad and Max.

Also of note:
UKers can still get Fallout: New Vegas & Fallout 3 [Goatee Edition] for £29.10
RUSE – £20.98/€29.98 (Apply coupon “ruserps”) Registers on Steam. Not available in North America it would seem, but prime for data smuggling.

For more discounted gaming goodness, keep your gaze fixed on
