The RPS Bargain Bucket: The Glory Of Looking

I was a bit poorly last week, and couldn’t quite manage to hold it together long enough to compile a bargain bucket. Normal service has resumed now though, so read on for this weekends top discounted PC downloads. You can always rely on to bring you updates for the latest gaming price drops.

Avadon: The Black Fortress, Canabalt, Cogs, Snuggle Truck, Swords and Soldiers & Zen Bound 2 – £4/€4.81/$6.42
Two days and a bit left on the latest Humble Bundle, which gets you Windows, Mac, Linux and Android versions of all these games if you beat the average. You can pay any price you want, but only get Swords and Soldiers if you pay more than average. This bundle includes Steam keys for all the games that are on Steam, and soundtracks for Canabalt, Snuggle Truck, Swords and Soldiers & Zen Bound 2. The new version of Canabalt on Android is bad ass.

Trine – £1.40/€1.60/$2
Trine 2 – £5.99/€6.49/$7.49
I’m a little bit confused by this offer. In Pound Sterling, it looks like it is cheaper to buy Trine 2 and Trine The First separately, rather than the Trine 2 Collector’s Edition which includes a free copy of Trine. Maybe the Collector’s Edition comes with some other stuff too. Thoughts on both of the lovely Trine games from Jim here and Alec here.

Split/Second: Velocity – £3.99
Apply coupon “pcgamer20”.
I’m not sure of the regional availability on this deal, but it’s worth giving it a try. This game slipped by under-loved, and the developer Black Rock Studios sadly shut down following it’s release. It’s a game where sometimes you get to press a button that makes a building explode. It’s great looking, and has some seriously spectacular moments. The PC version is a bit of a bare bones port, but it’s perfectly serviceable. You’d be silly not to grab it at this price.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution – £5.99
Apply coupon “pcgamer20”.
The same regional availability uncertainty as above for this deal, however since this is a Steamworks game it is much more suitable for data-smuggling between individual users in different regions. John said this about DXHR:

Despite its obvious visual console shackles, this is a game that remembers what PC games were once all about, and honours them. It’s a refreshing reminder of what games can be in the current swamp of six-hour follow-em-up shooters, and stands shoulders, chest and waist above. When games get close to the glory of Looking Glass, our expectations can rise extremely high. That Deus Ex: Human Revolution meets so many of them is a remarkable feat.

Deal of the week
Saints Row: The Third – £7.99
Apply coupon “pcgamer20”.
The same regional availability uncertainty as above, and indeed the same Steamworks based data-smuggle loophole too. Whilst I’m repeating myself, I may as well refer to John again for opinions:

It’s so fundamentally dedicated to being fun that its prehensile penile puerility ends up feeling redundant in the midst of the blaze of silliness and action, and barely noticeable. Car mechanics being called “Rim Jobs” doesn’t register as you play, and I do wonder if by SR4 they’ll have dropped the puns-for-eleven-year-olds entirely. Because what they’ve created doesn’t rely on that background hum of childishness – it’s got a foreground explosion of grotesquely violent entertainment to keep you constantly busy.
