Weeklong Deals for 9/2/19

The Weeklong Deals have swung back to quality, deluging us with a torrent of quality indie titles. This would be a real good time to get in on the One Finger Death Punch franchise, the Rusty Lake series, or any number of deep, engaging RPGs.

Voting for the September Reader’s Choice reviews ended today, and it looks like we’re going to be checking out RAD and Metal Wolf Chaos XD this month. These votes are always close, so if you’re interested in picking a game for me to review be sure to check out our Patreon at the end of every month, which is where I get the cash to make the magic happen.

One final note for the week: I’m going to be all up and down LA for work for awhile, so posting on Steam and elsewhere is going to be spotty. All our usual reviews and features will still go up here on time, but I won’t get to reposting them until the evenings. Basically just check the website all the time, every day, and you’ll never miss a thing.


Get it good
