Weeklong Deals for 4/27/20

There’s some big stuff like the Total War series and Baldur’s Gate II on sale right now, which might be why the other Weeklong Deals are rather lacking. Don’t get me wrong, the Rusty Lake games are always good picks, and there are some neat survival titles up for grabs, but it’s definitely not a banner week like the last few. Still, you might find something you’ve overlooked.

With May approaching fast, it’s time to open up the floor again for Reader’s Choice nominations! Unfortunately you may have noticed I’m not getting as many reviews out as I used to, on account of the stresses of quarantine. For that reason we’ll only be taking the top selection from the Reader’s Choice vote, but don’t let that stop you from nominating a game! Head over here (you do not have to be a patron) and comment your pick, and we’ll vote on them starting this Wednesday.
