I appear to have accidentally spent last night (until about 6am) discovering that there ain’t no party like a philosophy party. I stumbled home in the early hours of the morning, and now what limited brain activity I’ve got is almost entirely focused on trying to solve the problem of how to make a fry up appear in front of me, without any of the ingredients or the capactiy to collect the ingredients. Thankfully, my Savy-deputy Tony Heugh took sympathy on my self-enduced shambolic mental state, and has helped me bucket up this load of bargains for you this week. There’s more cheap games over at SavyGamer.co.uk
Hacker Evolution: Duality, inMomentum, Saira, Your Doodles Are Bugged & Zombie Shooter 2 – Pay What You Want
The Indie Gala Bundle is very similair to the Humble Indie Bundle we all know and love – pay what you want and choose how to split it between the developers, charity and the nice people running the bundle. Unfortunately, the games aren’t DRM free and are supplied as Steam codes but at that price, you shouldn’t look a gift-zombie in the mouth.
If, like Lewie, your heart sinks and flutters each time Mirror’s Edge 2 is cancelled and uncancelled, you may want to give first-person platformer inMomentum a look, here is what Alec had to say about it:
Have you ever stood on top of a very high place, like the edge of a tall cliff or the top floor of the Eiffel tower, and felt, just underneath the fear your survival instinct sensibly feeds you, a rush of excitement? InMomentum is that split-second feeling- when you’re tumbling to your doom at high speed but it’s glorious as well as terrifying. And, better yet, you know there’s a chance you could come back from it. That’s why you should play it, even if your brain-hand interface is as broken as mine.
If you spend $1.57 or more, you’ll also get Hacker Evolution: Untold & Zombie Shooter 1, and you’ll be helping the developer and charities as well as encouraging more of this sort of thing if you pay more.
Killing Floor – £3.74/€4.49/$4.99
Tripwire Interactive once again add free festive content to their dumb but enjoyable messy, screechy, bloody zombie co-op survival shooter and have put it on sale while they were at it. They’ve added seven guns a-shooting, festive zombies biting, an Ice Cave to die in and a free weekend on Steam too.
And after a write-up this muddled and bi-polar, I realise it doesn’t perhaps indicate too helpfully whether you should buy it. I say do. But go in knowing how flawed it is. With the additional proviso that the bugs mentioned in my previous article are extremely serious. I played the game using a 360 controller, and I’m pretty convinced it would have been impossible without one, certainly pre-patch.
Deal of the week
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion [Goatee Edition] – £3.74/$4.99/€4.99
Since Skyrim just came out, I guess we’re overdue an Oblivion backlash-backlash. I did quite enjoy Oblivion, top memories include: Jumping everywhere all over an expansive fantasy world, getting up to all sorts of mischievous nefarious activities with the dark brotherhood crew, and that persuasion system I still don’t understand. Skyrim is probably the better game, but where Oblivion has it beat is mod support. No doubt Skyrim will eventually have a huge catalogue of fantastic mods, but not yet.
