Weeklong Deals for 10/5/20

More like Midweek Deals, amirite? Ha, ha… In all seriousness, some weeks it’s a bit of a stretch for me to even get this little feature out, and obviously this is one of those weeks. But there’s enough good stuff in there here Weeklong Deals that it would just kill me to leave all of you in the lurch, so here we are, recounting Monday’s deals on a Thursday.

In other news, Star Wars: Squadrons has been a big hit around here, after streaming the full campaign last week and getting into some multiplayer action last night. If I don’t manage a full review of this one (one’s in the works!), know that this is the preeminent Star Wars flight sim and should absolutely be on the list of any fan. We also started up the absolutely lovely Spiritfarer this week, and we’ll be cracking into Little Misfortune at last on Friday. I’ll be working in as much horror as I can this month, despite the late start and lack of proper Spooktober festivities, but part of that is going to be Amnesia: Rebirth when it releases on the 20th!
