I assumed we would only receive two weeks of wallet-saving game deals. It was a very happy surprise to see yet another week of new titles with major discounts.
Here are just a few of my favorite deals.
Bloodborne Complete Edition Bundle ($13.99)
This PlayStation exclusive title is quite similar to the Dark Souls games. If you’ve played and enjoyed any of those, this game is sure to please. If you haven’t played a Souls game, this is a good place to start because it is known to be slightly easier. However, it is still a notoriously difficult game. Bosses, customizable character design and attributes, and a fantastical Gothic-styled open world are just a few of the things that Bloodborne has to offer.
The Complete Edition includes the Old Hunters DLC.
Moon Hunters ($5.99)
Moon Hunters is an obscure indie game with an incredibly unique concept: it’s a personality test disguised as a co-op RPG. You build your legend through the decisions and actions you take. The world will remember you for these choices, and a star constellation will be a constant reminder of that legend. The constellation, characters, and perceptions are directly changed by you and those playing with you.
Rise of The Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration ($19.79)
Following the storyline of the outstanding Tomb Raider, Rise of The Tomb Raider follows Lara Croft as she tries to unravel the secrets behind the events of the preceding game. It is excellent in story and graphics, and features a crafting system as well as a great combat system. It also has a strong female lead! I cannot praise this game enough and I’m very thankful it made the jump from being an Xbox exclusive. This version includes all DLC content.
The Escapists ($4.99)
The Escapists is a funny 8-bit prison-escape simulator. What makes the game so interesting is its multitude of ways to execute your escape. You use your time between roll calls, mandatory meals, and chores to upgrade your skills and plan your escape based on those skills. For five bucks, it’s a must have.
Similar to Dishonored in its stealth approach to combat, and a reboot of a classic series, Thief offers a plethora of crafty ways to progress the game and avoid violence. It is set in a stunning Gothic-Victorian city that has been plagued with a disease known as “The Gloom.” The game’s playable character, Garrett, uses his skills in thievery and stealth to aid the crumbling city. It is a bit of an outdated title, but it’s worth a play.
