Weeklong Deals for 9/13/21

Steam got their biggest shovels out for this round of Weeklong Deals, and not just by volume. We got tons of adventures, platformers, and assorted garbage to sort through, and that leaves us with a list of imposing stature. Of particular note, Blasphemous is on sale this week, which happens to correlate nicely with us starting to stream it tonight. But even past that, there’s plenty to poke through, and I guarantee you’ll find something worth your time.
