Weeklong Deals for 8/12/19
Some personal favorites have snuck into the Weeklong Deals this time, Titan Quest and Anodyne among them. We’re also notably light on garbage, but that’s mainly because I haven’t put my thoughts about games like Apparition into a proper review. Someday I hope to have the time to churn out reviews of current Weeklong Deals alongside the actual useful ones I do, but that will have to wait until the big internet riches start rolling in.
For now, expect reviews of Eastshade, Anodyne 2, and an ancient horror HOG to appear this week. We’re also starting up a full journey through West of Loathing on tonight’s stream, and finishing our adventures in Apsulov: End of Gods on Wednesday. Reminder that if you’re an active Patron you can request specific game reviews, and if you’re a Twitch subscriber you can request games to stream. I’m out here trying to cover the games you want to hear about; these Weeklong Deal roundups are just a bad habit.
