Better late than never, and these Weeklong Deals are better than they usually are! There are some real stand-outs like the new Tomb Raider and They Are Billions, along with some solid budget recommendations that come around all the time. You might also want to take a chance on This Strange Realm of Mine if you like experimental shooters, or Volume if you’ve been missing some stealth VR missions in your life.
Spooktober is still in full effect, as I’m sure you know, and that means lots of spooky streams, too! Last night we punched through more of The Evil Within 2 as we do every Monday night, which you can see right here. Wednesday we’ll be doing another indie horror romp, and on Friday we’ll try an interesting investigative walking sim called Sagebrush which I’ve been looking forward to. Give the channel a follow if you haven’t yet, and join us at 9pm PST for more spooky treats!
I’d say so!
