Weeklong Deals for 11/9/20

We skipped these last week since there was so little to talk about, but these Weeklong Deals are dense enough that we can’t escape their pull! Sorry for the late list again, and hopefully there’s something here that’ll catch your eye. There certainly will be if you’ve been holding out on the excellent Blasphemous or Eastshade. It’s also worth mentioning that there’s a big fighting game sale on for the weekend, and if you liked our reviews of The King of Fighters XIII and The King of Fighters XIV, you’ll know they’re both worth picking up. Also also, Going Under happens to be the daily deal, and I would quite like to recommend this quirky, colorful roguelike dungeon-brawler.

Y-Y-Y-YEA

Blasphemous (Review) – Truly excellent (and stylish) merging of soulslike mechanics with metroidvania structure

Eastshade (Review) – One of the most serene and peaceful open-world adventures you will ever undertake

Death Road to Canada (Review) – Zombie-mashing madness in a tight action roguelike package

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger (Review) – Solid wild west shooting wrapped in an excellent narrative

Project Warlock (Review) – About as good as retro 2.5D FPSes get

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (Review) – Not quite the rollicking good time Gunslinger is, but still a good FPS

Contradiction – Spot The Liar! – Not the best point-and-click adventure ever, but the incredible FMV cheese makes this an indispensable classic

Chasm (Review) – Decent metroidvania hurt more by its procedural generation than helped

Blood and Bacon (Review) – Seriously dumb fun arena FPS

Majesty Gold HD (Review) – Classic hands-off fantasy RTS

Hero of the Kingdom: The Lost Tales 1 (Review) – Decent chill adventure, but trading heavily on the goodwill of the previous entries

Nihilumbra (Review) – Clever puzzle platformer with some interesting quirks

Hexcells (Review) – Incredibly gratifying logic puzzles

Hexcells Plus (Review) – More solid Hexcells puzzling, but picks up in difficulty right from the previous

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi (Review) – Clunky, aging horror FPS with some ideas far ahead of its time

Shotgun Legend (Review) – Decent indie homage to Legend of Zelda

Back to Bed (Review) – Short isometric puzzler with a definite Dali influence

Horizon Shift (Review) – Decent shmup with a cool platformer vibe

N-N-N-NAY

Majesty 2 (Review) – Utterly frustrating mess coming off the brilliance of the original

Hard West (Review) – Ambitious but ultimately unsatisfying weird west turn-based strategy

1 Screen Platformer (Review) – About as engrossing as it sounds

Broken Armor (Review) – Not bad, just dismally unambitious
