Steals and Deals I Recommend

Well the Summer sales are upon us and Temptation is working around the clock! A couple of people have asked me: what’s good to buy? So here are some games I recommend if you catch them on sale!

Dark Souls. If you enjoy RPGs, pick this up. Yes it’s hard, but it’s not punishing. Yes it’s unforgiving, but it teaches you how to play. The bosses are amazing. The loot is seriously the best you’re going to get anywhere in the genre. The story itself is interesting, but what really sells it is the WORLD. This has more world than your favorite MMO. Pick this up and try it – or you can gift it to a friend you’ve been dying to play it with!

Tomb Raider. The new Lara is cool. This was worth a reboot. The adventure is great, but the game is a bit too linear and there’s a bit too much shrieking. Still, I can’t deny it’s quality and how much fun I had playing it. For 5 bucks, that’s all the convincing you should need. This is worth more.

Rogue Legacy. As the title suggests, roguelike. Fun as all hell. Amazing characters! Amazing dungeons! This is worth the full price, but on sale I feel like you should get a few more copies for friends later on. This is worth every freakin’ penny!

FTL. Another roguelike, but in outerspace. I love the pace of this game. Nice and tactical, full of adventures, and really fun on the strategy. And spaceships.

Magicka. If you really enjoy playing wizards, witches and magi in your games I can’t think of a single reason you should NOT own Magicka. It does something truly unique with gameplay and it doesn’t age. This game is as fun and popular today as it was at release.

You’re a gamer. You’ve played stuff. What would you recommend I catch on sale this Summer?

    • Thats a great game. Its still in early access though, right? I got it when it was in early access for PC. I havent put in a lot of time with it, but I’ve finished a couple of games and think its got amazing educational potential. Put that in my 4th grade biology class please.

      • It’s still EA, but I was fairly surprised as how far along it was for an early access title. We’ve been finding most of our gems in early access / crowdfunding which takes a lot of effort to weed the decent from the sham, and Plague, Inc. is definitely worth the $10 tag if it hits another flash/daily. The mobile is also on sale, it seems (or was when it was on flash) for a $1 unlock. The mobile is more f2p-ish and includes DLC unlocks, basically. You can get everything going forward for $12 or so there. The PC version seems much better, to me, including the assumed one-time purchase.

        They may have added more modes. If they didn’t have the zombie plague when you tried before, go boot it up! It also strikes me as perfectly paced, overall. Whereas Civ or CKII and most other strategy games tend to be longer affairs, this is nice and bite-sized allowing for the “quick game” mentality.

    • You know I kinda am, too I just admit. Its not all that tempting but then again I’ve got a LOT of games. Im probably not fit to judge 🙂

      That said, there have been some indie titles from my wishlist on sale. I may take advantage of that.
