Weeklong Deals for 8/13/18

It’s Monday, and that means new Weeklong Deals to hopefully dig something of worth out of! Actually it’s a pretty good week for that, seeing as how a few big names like Tomb Raider and They Are Billions are currently discounted. There’s plenty more where that came from, especially if you’re into zombies, so have a gander at my list and see what strikes your fancy.

Also, tomorrow night we’ll be doing our second-ever stream over on Twitch! The first one last Friday went quite well, and I’d link you the VOD except I kinda maybe forgot to set up archiving before the stream. That’s okay because tomorrow’s stream will be even BETTER, especially if you’re a fan of Spooky Games! I’ll be doing looks at three of the titles I’ll be reviewing this Spooktober and they’re all quite promising, so definitely drop by if you can. It’ll start at 9pm PST on 8/14 at https://www.twitch.tv/goldplatedgames which you should follow immediately if you haven’t yet.

Right then, back to the deals!

 

SMART MONEY

Tomb Raider (Review) – An excellent action-adventure and a fine revival of the franchise

Blood and Bacon (Review) – About as dumb as arena shooters get, but it’s the best kind of dumb

EDGE (Review) – Intensely stylish puzzler about navigating a cube

Hell Yeah! (Review) – Absurd action platformer full of bloody Warioware-ish finishers

Bloody Streets (Review) – Yet Another Twin-Stick Zombie Shooter

Gun Metal (Review) – Decent but uncompelling giant robot sim

DOWN THE DRAIN

The Inner Darkness (Review) – A fine attempt at a short, atmospheric platformer but one that still falls short

Megamagic: Wizards of the Neon Age (Review) – Cool-looking action-adventure that has pretty much no substance

Knights and Merchants (Review) – An absurdly plodding RTS that expects you to do everything

Dead Effect (Review) – Janky zombie FPS without any compelling progression

Deadly 30 (Review) – Side-scrolling zombie survival that gets old in a hurry
