It’s another one of those Weeklong Deals where they just kinda throw all the anime and hidden object games up at once, and a bunch of other random stuff gets caught up in the wave. I mean, XCOM 2 is on sale and a few of the games below are definitely worth your time, but it’s not exactly a banner week for discounts. Still, I’ve got plenty to read about whether you’re looking for a new indie title to occupy yourself or just some angry words about bad, bad games.
I say YES!
