Weeklong Deals for 5/25/20

We’ve got some more can’t-miss titles in Weeklong Deals this time, including Nova Drift and Star Traders: Frontiers. Some quality regulars have come around again like They Are Billions and Miasmata, and even a few newcomers like Infected Shelter. It’s not a huge list but there’s a good pick for just about everything you could be interested in, and some of these will last you weeks if you really dig into them.

I’m finally on track to finish the last of my Reader’s Choice obligations this week, as well as the last Patron Pick from December. We’ll have reviews of both One Step From Eden and Far Cry Primal in the coming days, which is perfect because we’ll also be starting our June selection for Reader’s Choice tomorrow. And next week, I’ll be contacting our Patrons for the summer Patron Picks, which means more reader-chosen reviews are on the way!
