I know what you’re thinking. We just had the big Thanksgiving Sale, and the mega Winter Sale starts next week. So what are we doing here with these Weeklong Deals? Well, there might be some awesome deals to shine a light on, like City of Brass for a scant four bucks. There might be someone out there who’s just desperate for a new game right the hell now, and can’t hold it for another ten days. Or it might just be that these Weeklong roundups are such a habit that I can’t stop doing them. Who can say, really?
In the end, just enjoy the wall of reviews. Also we’re gonna play Frog Detective 2 tonight over on Twitch so deffo show up for that.
Maybe buy this?
