Weeklong Deals for 4/29/19

Happy Golden Week, everyone! To mark the occasion, Steam is having a very special set of Weeklong Deals that pretty much cover all Japanese releases on the platform. That means your Dark Souls, your Resident Evils, visual novels, RPGMaker games, everything is discounted. But there are traditional deals in the mix too, so the lineup is way longer than usual. I bet there’s something you’ll like, though, and plenty of junk to make fun of, too!

Voting for our May Reader’s Choice reviews has ended, and we’ve got a really neat pair of games to cover! On the Switch, we’ll be looking at Steamworld Quest, and back on Steam we’ll be grabbing miniLAW. Keep an eye out at the end of May for our next selection process, and if you’d like to expand our Reader’s Choice options consider donating on our Patreon!
