Weeklong Deals for 1/14/19

The big news in the current Weeklong Deals is western Square Enix catalog being on sale, so this is your change to grab your Tomb Raiders and Just Causes for a song. Outside of that there are a lot of Weeklong stand-bys like Stronghold and Sanctum, and a whole lot of junk that decided to resurface this week. Can’t win ’em all, right?

Why, yes!

Tomb Raider (Review) – The 2013 revival is an action-packed romp across a mysterious island

Rise of the Tomb Raider (Review) – Better in some ways and worse in others, this in nevertheless a solid follow-up for the series

Stronghold Crusader HD (Review) – The perfect castle-sieging sim for endless war

Sanctum 2 (Review) – A surprisingly robust upgrade to the original’s concept

Dungeon Siege (Review) – Tough to break into now, but this classic ARPG still nails the feeling of being on an epic journey

Dungeon Siege II (Review) – You might have a hell of a time getting it to run, but if you do this is still one of the top classic ARPGs around

Sanctum (Review) – A decent stab at the FPS/tower defense concept, but the sequel does it way better

Hitman GO (Review) – Absurdly clever little puzzler that turns assassinations into a board game

Startopia (Review) – Classic building sim for refurbishing space stations and accommodating hilarious aliens

The Dream Machine (Review) – A fascinating and sometimes disturbing journey into the land of dreams


Oh goodness, no!

Majesty 2 (Review) – Unless they patched out its atrocious difficulty curve in recent years, this is a hard pass

Slender: The Arrival (Review) – Here’s how you waste a perfectly good mythos on an incompetent game

The Bridge (Review) – Sadly not as clever or engaging as it needs to be

Deadly 30 (Review) – Side-scrolling zombie wave shooter that lacks the variety to keep you going

The Dungeon Power (Review) – Wow I don’t even remember playing this one

Firewood (Review) – Poor attempt at side-scrolling horror

Space Hack (Review) – Few games have been hit by the sci-fi ARPG curse as hard as this one

Sinister City (Review) – I want to like this cheesy HOG, but it’s too technically incompetent to recommend

Hektor (review) – Rape hallway
