The RPS Bargain Bucket: Top, Right?

Got a gap in your gaming schedule this weekend? Here’s the usual five cut price electronic games of chance for you to consider investing your pocket money in. This week is particularly cheap, you could get all five games for less than what a full price new release would normally cost. As always, is the home of cheap games on the internet. Engage bargain-o-tron-3000.
Sword of the Stars, PC – £2.92/€3.31/$4.79
Apply coupon “showers” to get this price.
This price is based on buying from the USA store. If the link takes you to the .eu or site, just select US from the country picker at the top right. Comes with Born of Blood, A Murder of Crows and Argos Naval Yard expansions. This was on sale at GamersGate last week for a little more, perhaps they’re trying to build some excitement for the upcoming sequel due out later on in the year. RPS coverages here. Cue Vinraith.

Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter – £2.28/€2.58/$3.74
Registers on Steam. Select to pay in dollars to get these prices.
The First Encounter is often reduced to this kind of price, but this is the cheapest I’ve seen The Second Encounter for. Alec’s got you covered with this hugely in depth list of 16 reasons to play Serious Sam HD here, and Kieron goes off on one here.

King’s Bounty: The Legend – £3.05/€3.45/$4.99
A whole host of 1C games are half price this week, King’s Bounty being one of the top picks. Alec once said of King’s Bounty:

King’s Bounty is the future of PC gaming. Stop staring in horror at all those dying MMOs and mendacious, mercenary big devs fleeing for console shores. They’re no loss whatsoever. What we have here is great ideas supported by solid game-making – a new breed of developers freed from the cheerless, focus group-governed rules and oversights of most Western publishers, but now able to pair that with experience and expertise. The Russian scene is about to become absolutely phenomenal, and this charming, thoughtful hybrid is the herald of that new age.

Kind words indeed. RPS coverage here, demo here.

Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble – £3.09/€3.50/$5.07
This price is based on buying from the EU store. If the link takes you to the .com or site, just select EU from the country picker at the top right. As Kieron put it:

It replaces the RPG combat systems with high-school specific activities. For example, you swap bon mots in the manner of Monkey Island, with the larger structure actually meaning the hunting for the perfect come back feels surprisingly compelling. Other conflicts – such as lying, uncovering secrets and flirting work in similar casual style subgames (Lying is playing a cup-game, the secret uncovering is a word-guessing one and flirting is a pattern recognition thing).

Deal of the week
GTA4 [Complete Edition] – £4.86/€5.50/$7.96
Apply coupon “showers” to get this price.
This price is based on buying from the USA store. If the link takes you to the .eu or site, just select US from the country picker at the top right. This is the best price I can recall having ever seen for GTA4 plus both expansions, although you’ll have to be quick off the mark since this offer expires at some point in the the next 24 hours. Direct2Drive appears to have accidentally leaked what the next week of sales will be, and you can spot them here. There’s a daily special from D2D every day of the month. What do we think folks, are Rockstar going to be gearing up to GTA5 any time soon?

Also of note:
The Potato Sack – £27.22/€34.47/$38.72
JRPG sale
Hearts of Iron sale
Game Factory sale
