Top 5 PSN Store Holiday Deals, Week One

If your wallet isn’t still empty from the onslaught of Black Friday video games sales, then you’re in luck! The PlayStation Network has begun its first week of holiday sales. Through December 19, PS Plus members can get incredible discounts on select titles.

The following list contains a few of the best deals for PS4 users.

Alien: Isolation ($8.99)

Immersive and all-around a fun play, Alien: Isolation has received an abundance of positive reviews. It is a survival-horror game that takes place in the science-fiction universe of the iconic Alien franchise.

Character Amanda Ripley ventures into the depths of her missing mother’s ship. There she finds hostile androids and humans that can be defeated in the traditional first-person shooter way, but there is one foe that cannot be killed. An alien hunts her and stalks her based on sounds and disturbances. This is where the game deploys its excellent stealth system that left me paranoid with every step.

LEGO The Hobbit ($4.99)

LEGO games were a staple in my childhood gaming life. When I saw a five dollar LEGO game that was also a crossover with The Hobbit, I pulled my wallet out, purchase effective immediately. It’s simply a fun couch co-op play for all ages.

The Wolf Among Us ($6.24)

I’ve played every Telltale choice-based story game available and this one is my favorite. Imagine all your favorite fairy tale characters and Disney princesses living in a modern-day city; that’s the setting of TWAU.

Bigby is the game’s playable character, a werewolf sheriff for Fabletown, the area of Manhattan where the fairy-tale characters reside. It’s his job to solve the crimes of the town and keep the fables out of trouble. This might sound cute and silly, but cute and silly couldn’t be further from it in actuality. (It’s rated M for a reason.)

Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 ($12.49)

If you’re a fan of fighting games, this is a solid pick. It’s sold at $39.99 regularly, making this an excellent deal. (It’s such an excellent deal, in fact, you might pick it up even if you’re not a fan of fighting games.)

Never Alone ($2.99)

Inspired and created by indigenous people of Alaska, Never Alone offers insight into the culture of the Iñupiaq group. Its art style and atmosphere are both stunning, and the game utilizes its atmosphere in its puzzles and platforming.

You play as Nuna, a young Iñupiaq girl.  You can switch between controlling her and her arctic fox; this mechanic is also utilized in solving puzzles.

There have been mixed reviews on the platforming and puzzle mechanics of the game, but its story has been almost unanimously praised.
