Weeklong Deals for 8/6/18

I don’t know why they do it this way, but just about every solid Weeklong Deal you could possibly want is on offer this time around. I’ve got a hell of a list right here to dig through but I’ll also mention that Sleeping Dogs is an absolute must-buy if you’ve somehow avoided it and appreciate GTA-style open-world games. Same with Just Cause 2 if you missed out on that mayhem. For literally anything else, though, I’m pretty sure I’ve got a suggestion or two below.

Also, if you’re not following me on Twitter then you might not know I’m going to start streaming very soon! The streaming survey results were very positive so in the next few weeks I’ll begin streaming some of the games I review, doing all sorts of previews, live reviews, and playthroughs. I’ll have another announcement when that launches, so look forward to even more words but said out loud this time!
