The RPS Bargain Bucket: Wasted Elegance

Have you been saving your pennies recently? I hope so, because right here is RPS’s weekly dose of download discounts, where you could turn a little bit of money into lots of games. There’s discounts from all across the internet compiled into on convenient place, so you can spend less time running around looking for games you want to buy, and more time playing them. Get over to SavyGamer.co.uk if this lot isn’t enough for you.Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition – £5/€5.99/$8
Apply coupon “GMG20-PJFEW-Y16HK”. Registers on Steam.
With modern computer simulation technology, it’s possible to engage in competitive fisticuffs with another human being, without risking getting a beating and a bruising. SF4 is one such way of achieving this. Simply by looking at the screen and then pressing buttons you can make some combat made out of pixels happen. Whether your choosing to fight against another person in the same room as you, send punches and kicks along the information superhighway, or fighting against one of the automatons that live inside the game, it’s a fun time for all.

Football Manager 2013 – £11.38
Apply coupon “elder-geek.com”. Registers on Steam.
I don’t know very much about football, and even less about databases, so I’m not in a very good position to tell you about what’s new in the latest football manager. Luckily Adam doesn’t share by abject fear of the outside world, so he knows a thing or two about kicking a ball around a field. Here he is talking about the all new classic mode:

Classic mode is strong though. It cuts out the nonsense without damaging the simulation and I don’t feel like I’ve given up a huge amount of control. Although I’ll probably switch to the full version after the January update, it’s a relief to be more fixated on the actual results of a football match than the results of a press conference. I’d be ecstatic if the actual Premier League had a Classic mode as well. I expect someone will comment that I’d find such a thing in the lower leagues, where men talk with their feet instead of their agents. I won’t argue.

Dead Space & Dead Space 2 – £4.99
I liked both Dead Spaces. They’re sort of scary, have decent controls, and you get to stomp on lots of nasties. There’s lots of tense moments, lots of monsters jumping out of wardrobes, and some stunning environments. At times it feels just like you’re actually on the Nostromo. Dead Space started out life as a planned System Shock threequel, and although the end product is hugely different to the Looking Glass games, once you’re aware of it, you’ll notice enough common elements to trace the lineage. The second one went in a slightly more cinematic direction, which means it has more graphics, but also quick time events.

Homefront, Metro 2033, Red Faction Armageddon, Red Faction Guerilla, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl & Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine – £7.44/€9/$11.99
Registers on Steam.
The great THQ car boot sale continues. Here’s wot some guy called Kieron said about the delightful Red Faction Guerilla:

Its approach to destruction is very Bruckheimer, for want of a better word. You’re playing in a terrorist organisation whose first and best line of offense is to just drive at high speed into the building they’re trying to destroy, then pile out. They crumble with wasted elegance. The occasional time when you question whether a building really should still be standing is the cost for the arguably unprecedented accuracy of centre-cannot-hold-and-things-fall-apart-ism.

Deal of the week
Dead Rising 2 – £2.80/€4/$4
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record – £4/€6/$6
Apply coupon “GMG20-PJFEW-Y16HK”. Registers on Steam.
A game about being in a shopping mall full of zombies. Can’t be too different to normal shopping malls can it? Lets see what Alec says:

The other truth behind it is that, well, almost everyone in Dead Rising 2 is near-psychotic. A dude in a flannel boob-tube is nothing compared to cannibal chefs, zombie rights maniacs and genocidal TV presenters. It’s a horrible, crazy, deadly world. Why worry about clothes? If the guy feels better when he’s wearing bottom leather chaps, let him wear bottomless leather chaps.

More here. Off the record is a weird expanalone thing, where you play as the character from the previous entry in the series. Hmm. Odd.

Also of note:
Brink, Doom 3: BFG Edition, Fallout 3 [Goatee Edition], Fallout: New Vegas [Ultimate Edition] & Rage – £23.49. Registers on Steam.
