Weeklong Deals for 2/7/22

Apologies for the delay, but when there are over fourteen hundred games in the Weeklong Deals, it takes awhile to get through them! Honestly, this massive, sprawling list isn’t even everything that I would recommend. Multiple quality franchises are on sale, including the Far Cry series, whose reviews you can find in our classic FPS review series. There’s an unprecedented number of can’t-miss games in this mix, from Disco Elysium to Blasphemous, Nova Drift to SOMA. I even see quite a few deserving of reviews that I haven’t gotten to yet!

Just for you

Disco Elysium (Review) – Still the best-written game of all time, now with more voice acting!

Blasphemous (Review) – Amazing, brutal, and expansive metroidvania

Nova Drift (Review) – The perfect marriage of arcade Asteroids action and roguelike

Dawn of Man (Review) – Very solid pre-historic village builder

SOMA (Review) – My all-time favorite horror game, the themes are incredibly effective

Amnesia: Rebirth – Not quite as terrifying as The Dark Descent, but still an interesting, enthralling game

Darkwood (Review) – A shockingly effective 2D horror survival adventure

Caves of Qud (review) – Quite possibly the most expansive and creative classic roguelike ever made

Going Under – Very clever and wonderfully wacky roguelike dungeon brawl

Amnesia: The Dark Descent (Review) – Showing its age, but still one of the most affecting horror adventures around

The Painscreek Killings (Review) – A genuine murder mystery that’s going to take some serious note-taking

Project Warlock (Review) – Super fun retro FPS with a huge variety of levels and enemies

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (Review) – Not as fun or clever as Gunslinger, but still a solid wild west FPS

Yoku’s Island Express (Review) – Pure joy in a metroidvania pinball package

Sacred 2 Gold (Review) – Aging and janky, but still one of the bigger, deeper ARPGs out there

Ash of Gods: Redemption (Review) – Dark fantasy RPG using the Banner Saga mechanics

Unforgiving – A Northern Hymn (Review) – A horrifying journey through Scandinavian myth

Unworthy (Review) – Very, very, very much 2D monochromatic Dark Souls

The Silent Age (Review) – Tight little adventure game built around time travel

The Town of Light (Review) – Some serious psychological horror here, might be a bit much for some

Hero of the Kingdom (Review) – The original chill trading adventure

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi (Review) – A first-person horror roguelike, very much ahead of its time

Omega Strike (Review) – A perfectly okay metroidvania with some fine pixel art

Realms of the Haunting (Review) – Incredibly ambitious first-person horror adventure

Clea – Pretty neat little spooky maze adventure

The Dweller (Review) – Sharp little puzzler about murdering archaeologists

Sproggiwood (Review) – A wonderful introduction to classic roguelikes

Paranormal State: Poison Spring (Review) – Surprisingly solid hidden object game

Kautic – The Bald Wizard (Review) – Exceptionally indie, but has its charms

Not for nobody

Pacify (Review) – Janky-ass multiplayer ghost thing

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs (Review) – A pretty big disappointment, coming off of The Dark Descent

Rise of Insanity (Review) – A quality rendition of the bog-standard first-person horror game

Darkstone (Review) – I have a hard time believing anyone actually liked this ARPG mess

INFERNIUM (Review) – Creative survival horror Pac-Man that somehow ended up super boring

Sinking Island (Review) – A huge waste of a promising detective story

Nicolas Eymerich – The Inquisitor – Book 1 : The Plague (Review) – Almost so good it’s bad, but no, just bad

Timen runner (Review) – Yeahhhhhhhhhhhh no
