Weeklong Deals for 1/28/19

I believe we’re on the cusp of another big seasonal sale on Feb 4th, but that hasn’t stopped Steam from putting up some choice Weeklong Deals! Seriously, there are some amazing offerings here, from Vermintide 2 to the Anno series all the way to Unforgiving and Dark Scavenger. Take some time to pore over this list, because I guarantee there’s at least one very, very good game on here that you don’t have yet.

We’ve got a lot going on elsewhere, with another Yakuza 0 stream tonight and a Cuphead stream on Wednesday. Also Platformebruary starts this Friday, so buckle down for an entire month of platformer reviews! Our February Reader’s Choice vote ended today as well and selected Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon as the last entry in our platformer lineup, and it also convinced me to cover Yoku’s Island Express when I get the chance in March. To learn more about our Reader’s Choice reviews (and help us get to the next goal of 2 a month), check our our Patreon page!
