Weeklong Deals for 2/17/20

Okay, if you haven’t found anything good in the last few Weeklong Deals, you’ll find something here! A huge selection of games I’ve covered has come up in this week’s list, everything from FPSes to sims to horror to adventures. Definitely check out Tangledeep, Refunct, and Dark Scavenger if you haven’t yet, those are easily three of my favorites from this sprawling lineup.

I’m still hanging in there with Platformebruary! It’s been a tough schedule this time around, but it’s not much further to the finish line. We’ll be taking an in-depth look at one of the games on our list but I haven’t decided which one yet, so if you have an opinion, hop in our Discord so you can be there when I poll folks tomorrow!

I think you should

Far Cry 4 (Review) – Better than 3 at what 3 does, but similar enough that I didn’t really need more

Far Cry 3 – Blood Dragon (Review) – One of the most viscerally fun Far Cry games, tightly-paced and hilarious

Far Cry 3 (Review) – Pretty compelling collectathon shooter hobbled by a mess of a story

Far Cry 2 (Review) – Still my pick for best of the lot, with incredible gunplay and a wide open world

Far Cry (Review) – The open-world FPS that started the series, and a tough one to revisit

Banished (Review) – This ended up spawning its own genre of survival builders, which should speak to its quality

Wizard of Legend (Review) – Fast-paced roguelike arena combat with a rad magic system and a pretty steep challenge

Tangledeep (Review) – Simply one of the best classic-style roguelikes on Steam, mixed with some great 16-bit era mechanics

Sanctum 2 (Review) – Very solid realization of the FPS tower defense concept

Sanctum (Review) – Plays like a proof-of-concept for what the second would become, but still fun enough

Ash of Gods: Redemption (Review) – Pitch-black fantasy SRPG using the mechanics from the Banner Saga

A Story About My Uncle (review) – Charming first-person adventure about grappling through fantastic environments

How to Survive (review) – Neat little ARPG-survival joint with some indie jank

Refunct (Review) – Just play this one, trust me

Zombie Driver HD (Review) – Gory action driving that plays a little like old-school GTAs

Bunker Punks (Review) – Simple but compelling roguelike FPS

Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden (Review) – BioShock as a hidden object game

Timberman (Review) – Super simple arcade action

SkyDrift (Review) – Fun little arcade racer that channels the old Crimson Skies

Dark Fall: The Journal (Review) – Bust out the notepad for this ball-buster of an adventure

Dark Scavenger (Review) – Amazingly unique adventure game

Blackbay Asylum (review) – Weirdly charming horror adventure

Mutant Mudds Deluxe (Review) – Pretty basic platformer with some neat challenges

Horizon Shift (Review) – Neat shmup with unique platforming mechanics

I know you shouldn’t

Majesty 2 (Review) – I wish this was as good as the first, but the wonky difficulty ruins it

Cities in Motion 2 (Review) – Completely ruins everything that was fun about the original

Dead Pixels (Review) – Decent idea lacking in variety

Dark Fall 2: Lights Out (Review) – Somehow even more awkward and confusing than the first
