Weeklong Deals for 9/28/20
Looks like an even spread of genres in these Weeklong Deals, from roguelikes to FPSes to strategy! I’ve got a little something to offer everyone, and from this week, I’ll be offering a little bit more. Since there won’t be any regular reviews for awhile, I’m also going to mention discounted games I haven’t reviewed yet. Don’t take these as full recommendations, but rather notes about games I’ve enjoyed that you might enjoy as well. Of particular note this week are the Supergiant games, which might make this your chance to finally try out Pyre or Transistor if you’ve missed them thus far.
We’ve got a big week of streams planned, including some in the daylight hours! This Friday, I’ll be streaming Star Wars: Squadrons from morning to evening PDT, and possibly more if it’s as good as I’m hoping it’ll be. We’re also checking out Spelunky 2 tonight (Tuesday) and probably tomorrow (Wednesday) as well. If you need some live impressions to fill that review-shaped hole in your life right now, pop over to our Twitch channel sometime to see what we’re up to!
Pyre – I’ve only just scratched the surface of this one, but the art and story seem more than enough to carry it even if you don’t love the tactical ball-sport gameplay
Bastion – Gorgeous isometric action adventure with some of the best narration in gaming
Praey for the Gods – Still shaping up in Early Access, but if you miss Shadow of the Colossus this might be right up your alley
MAXIMUM Action – Retro FPS with some hilariously kinetic action and cheats
