Titanfall 2, World of Final Fantasy, Skyrim: Special Edition, and Dragonball Xenoverse 2 are all officially out now! These, along with this week’s earlier release of game of the year contender Farming Simulator 17, would be enough reason for you to disappear into a haze of video games this weekend. That is, unless like me, you’re still playing Civ 6 and chanting the mantra of “just one more turn” until you find yourself at an unreasonable hour of the morning. Multiple times.
Whatever your chosen video game poison is, we’ve got a range of deals and offers to go through today, so sit back and relax as we take a look at what’s out there.
Her Story is a unique mystery adventure game that tasks the player with seeking out, viewing and piecing together fragments of old police interogation video files in order to uncover the truth behind a crime that happened two decades prior. The game was well received at the time it launched and went on to win a video game BAFTA for its troubles. You can grab the mobile versions of this game on iOS and Android while they’re on sale right now, from $2.99.
It’s almost time to be thinking about 2016’s Game of the Year, but not too late for another game to be in the running. One such game is, of course, Farming Simulator 17. This one was actually only released this week but has already found its way down to $26.24 at GamersGate.
Bundle Stars is having itself a ‘Dollar Dash’ promotion, which means that you can choose one of a selection of Steam games to pick up for just $1, which is a lot cheaper than going through Steam. Pay more and you can bundle up a group of games, up to $5 for seven games.
It’s almost Halloween, which means it’s probably time to turn off all the lights, hunker down with a good horror game and give yourself nightmares. Outlast is probably one of the better games to do this with, which is convenient since it’s on sale on Xbox One right now. For $6.25, you’ll get the original game as well as the Whistleblower DLC.
Remember Ubisoft’s surprise hit about a little red robot who just wants to go places? Grow Home seemingly came out of nowhere at the time and caught the attention of a lot of people, with good reason. Its sequel, Grow Up is similarly based around the BUD, the Botanical Utility Droid, and features even more weird climby puzzle platforming. It’s down to $4.88 at the moment, at GamesPlanet.
These days, it’s not all that hard to pick up a cheap copy of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, but over at Bundle Stars right now you can drop $6.99 and not only get the base game, but all eighteen DLC add-ons to go along with it. After that, you can spend all the time you want being the murderer of Mordor.
With Ashes of Ariandel released this week for Dark Souls 3, it might be time to go back to where it all started (not counting Demon’s Souls, that is). Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition is down to $4.99 as a PC download over at GameStop US right now, which is a small price to pay for the amount of sheer rage you’ll get from actually playing the game.
Bethesda may have made the news this week for other reasons, but before all of that business came to be, the bombshell they were most known for dropping was Fallout 4’s surprise announcement last year. The game’s been out for almost a year now, with a full set of downloadable add-ons now available. You can grab a PC copy of the game for $19.99 or a console version for $24.99 at Amazon right now.
The other Bethesda franchise that made a pretty big impact in the past year, id Software’s rekindling of the Doom franchise, is down to $24.99 on Xbox One and PS4 right now. If you haven’t given this one a try yet and you enjoy having a whole lot of fun, you may want to pick up a copy.
Okay, that’s all for another week. As usual, please keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at any time, so sorry if that happens on any of the above. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the information super-highway for more deals. Feel free to follow us over at Twitter or Facebook. See you next week!
