Nothing like another batch of Weeklong Deals to lift your spirits! What there is this time is pretty good, including some rare picks like Golden Krone Hotel which doesn’t get discounted very often. There’s a decent smattering of platformers and puzzlers to pick out as well, so it’s a decent week to find something worth playing.
The big news right now is that we’re finally doing our fabled PRIME-TIME WEEK over on our Twitch channel! That’s right, I’m actually streaming during daylight hours this week, on the following schedule:
- Monday Feb 10 from 1pm to 5pm PST
- Wednesday Feb 12 from 1pm to 5pm PST
- Friday Feb 14 from 1pm to 5pm PST
We already had a lovely time today getting through A Short Hike and checking out more Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! and if you missed out, you can find all that fun right here. On Wednesday, we’ll be looking at the new Dead Cells DLC, and for Friday we’re planning a look at recent management sims. And of course, regular evening streams are proceeding as usual, with the end of Red Faction Guerrilla tonight!
