Weeklong Deals for 10/22/18

I think I’ve hit a critical mass of Weeklong Deals in my pocket such that every week is going to be a big one now. This one is great if you’re looking to dip into Square Enix’s extended catalog or do some platforming. We’ve even got some adventuring and building thrown into the mix, so I’m confident you’ll find something below that tickles your fancy.

Good golly YES

Tomb Raider (Review) – An excellent revival of the franchise with some excellent world design

Rise of the Tomb Raider (Review) – Solid follow-up to the revival, stronger in some ways and weaker in others

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition – I don’t have an official review for this but it’s less than five bucks and might be my favorite open-world game of all time, just get it

Murdered: Soul Suspect (review) – A great little supernatural adventure, especially if you love collecting things

The Painscreek Killings (Review) – Decent murder mystery spread out over a pretty well-realized town

Dungeon Siege (Review) – Rough around the edges, but still a classic of the ARPG genre for its vast worlds and party-based combat

Dungeon Siege II (Review) – Honestly one of the best ARPGs ever, if you can get past its age and technical issues

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition (Review) – You’d be better off playing the original, but this will do if you can’t handle the old pixel graphics

The Cat Lady (Review) – One of the darkest, most meaningful horror adventures on Steam

Hitman GO (Review) – Absolutely brilliant little puzzle game that turns contract assassinations into a board game

Odallus: The Dark Call (Review) – A dark metroidvania of a platformer that deserves to stand with other retro greats

Startopia (Review) – Classic station-builder with that great dry British wit

Nihilumbra (Review) – Solid puzzle platformer with a solid painting gimmick

Happy Room (Review) – Fine little time-waster about building a better killroom

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi (review) – Very unique first-person proto-roguelike horror game

One Way Heroics (Review) – Wonderful classic fantasy roguelike with one very important gimmick

EDGE (Review) – Sharp little puzzler about moving a cube around stylish worlds

Haunted Past: Realm of Ghosts (review) – Decent little spooky hidden object game

Shattered Planet (Review) – Not a bad sci-fi coffee break roguelike right here

The Little Slime (Review) – It’s a messy little platformer, but still one worth trying

Oh my stars NO

Dungeon Siege III (Review) – Discounting the fact that it preserves nothing special about the Dungeon Siege series, it’s just a bog-standard action adventure

Slender: The Arrival (Review) – If you fear the Tall Man now, this terrible game will cure you of your fear

Knights and Merchants (Review) – One of the slowest, most ponderous RTSes I’ve ever played

Neverending Nightmares (review) – Cool nightmare imagery, just a shame how annoying it is to play

Megamagic: Wizards of the Neon Age (Review) – I really wanted to like this one, but it’s the quintessential style over substance title

Scarygirl (review) – As good as it looks, this is just another boring, frustrating platformer

STANDBY (Review) – A shockingly bad attempt at a high-speed challenge platformer
