Weeklong Deals for 9/20/21

Tons of Weeklong Deals once again, but only a few to recommend! Part of that is how the Call of Duty series seems to be occupying the featured slot, and I wouldn’t recommend those to anyone who isn’t already ass-deep in milshooters already. Still, there’s some quality horror to be had in the form of the Frictional Games catalogue, some excellent sci-fi roguelikes like SYNTHETIK and Cogmind, and some fun adventures to round things out.

Go for it

SYNTHETIK: Legion Rising (Review) – Incredibly hectic and visceral top-down roguelike shooting

SOMA (Review) – Probably my all-time favorite horror game, really hits on the existential dread

Amnesia: The Dark Descent (Review) – Showing its age, but still a cornerstone of horror

Amnesia: Rebirth – Big on concept and atmosphere, just not quite the terror masterpiece that The Dark Descent is

Cogmind (Review) – Roguelikes don’t get much crunchier or creative than this

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura – A rough but really neat classic RPG that deserves a try

Long Live The Queen (Review) – Surprisingly deep and challenging visual novel adventure

Unworthy (Review) – One of the Dark Soulsiest platformers you can find

Chasm (Review) – Decent metroidvania but the procedural generation does it no favors

This Strange Realm Of Mine (Review) – Very unique first person shooter/adventure

Ghoulboy – Dark Sword of Goblin (Review) – Seems to take inspiration from Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, but isn’t a miserable slog to play

Depths of Peril (Review) -Interesting indie ARPG where you have to manage relationships with other AI adventurers

Get away from it

Pacify (Review) – Janky, unimpressive multiplayer horror, especially now that Phasmophobia exists

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (Review) – Really squanders its sci-fi setting for some uninspired shooting

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs (Review) – Absolute mess of story and tedious gameplay

Das Geisterschiff (Review) – Neat art style, intensely boring gameplay
