Deadly 30 has starred in plenty of bundles, but if you missed it, you can now add this deceptively deep title to your Steam library for peanuts. This indie zombie shooter may initially appear to be simple, but extended play reveals an expansive and dangerous environment, multiple characters and terrifying night-long defence sections.
Basically, a bargain for less than 40p!
Check out our Deadly 30 review for more details. Many thanks to X10 @ HUKD!
29p won't buy you a lot these days. Except TWO hilarious PC RPGs, that is! Cthulhu Saves The World & Breath Of Death VII will set you back just £0.29, netting you two excellent parodies that are still both mechanically excellent games in their own right.
I described Cthulhu Saves The World as "absolutely delicious." I described Breath Of Death VII as "witty and hilarious." Now I describe them both as "basically essential if you like buying great games for hardly any money."
UPDATE: Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD, who beat me to it!
Before we dive into our appraisal of Book Three, here’s our usual bit of housekeeping for our episodic reviews. If you haven’t already, be sure to get up to speed with our reviews for Dreamfall Chapters – Book One: Reborn and Dreamfall Chapters – Book Two: Rebels by hitting the links provided. As always with our episodic reviews, our score will be published once the season is finished, reflecting the game as a whole.
The first two Books have rocked our twin worlds with their huge environments, atmospheric world building, and expertly crafted narrative. Rebels in particular provided a run time to rival most episodic seasons and ended on a shocking cliffhanger. If anything, we’ve been spoilt rotten by Red Thread Games up until now, but as a result Book Three doesn’t quite hit the same marks as the previous instalments. Make no mistake, though – surprising revelations and long-awaited returns make Book Three an important episode, but it did come off more as a setup for the remainder of the story than anything else.

Bought Batman: Arkham Knight on PC? Chances are you've suffered from Warner Bros' terrible optimisation job, but indie studio No Bull Intentions have a little something to ease the sting.Click here to read more...
Bombshell is the game that emerged from the legal minefield between 3D Realms/Interceptor and Duke Nukem' IP holders (and ruiners), Gearbox. Originally down as Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, this top-down action RPG shooter has had a lead character swap and has been renamed Bombshell.
The game will release later this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Hopefully much later this year, as it's looking decidedly average at the moment. Think Diablo III meets Smash TV, but with none of the good bits. The proof is in the playing though and if you find yourself at QuakeCon next month you'll be able to try it for out. You never know, it could turn out to be fun.Click here to read more...
Missed out on last-gen? You can now pick up Saints Row IV: Re-Elected and the Gat out of Hell expansion for just £11.99 on on Xbox One. PC gamers can enjoy a further discount at £8.25.
The graphical upgrade on this one between generations isn't that impressive if we're honest, but Saints Row IV itself is one of the funnest gaming experiences you can have. This former GTA wannabe has evolved into a bonkers experience with super powered skills like supersonic sprinting, mega leaps, flying, psy-blasts and so much more. The Gat out of Hell expansion isn't quite as good, but as an overall package, it's well worth the money if you don't own the last-gen version.
Thanks to nunn and slayermatt.
Seeing as GOG literally stands for Good Old Games, calling a sale "Blast From The Past" seems fairly redundant, but with savings of up to 70% I'm not going to quibble with the semantics.
This is the end folks. Rocksteady's last Batman game. As we saw with Warner Montréal's Arkham Origins, you can't just ask another studio to copy the formula and come up with the goods. Wipe away those tears though and step into the world of Batman: Arkham Knight.
This final adventure sees Batman finally playing on home turf in the expansive Gotham City. A dream come true for gamers, but the Scarecrow wants to make it everyone's worst nightmare. He's been cooking up a small ocean of his trademark fear toxin to make a whole city lose its mind and tear itself apart.
Rather politely, because he only really wants to break Batman, he gave the citizens time to evacuate. All that remains on the streets of Gotham is Batman, a few allies, the cops and any surviving members of the Rogues Gallery and their legions of goons. Oh, and some chap called the Arkham Knight who has an army of mercs, hundreds of tanks and a personal burning desire to hunt down the Bat.
While we're sure Batman would be arrogant enough to think he could punch a hole through them all (and to be fair, he might), he's lucky enough for Lucius Fox to have finally entrusted him with the keys to the Batmobile. I've already gone into extensive detail about my opening impressions of the Batmobile in this feature article, but I'll give you a quick updated rundown.Click here to read more...
Games Republic have launched their Summer Blockbuster Sale.
There's plenty on offer, but right off the bat you should note that you can download Anomaly: Warzone Earth Mobile Campaign for free. It's playable on Steam (Mac, PC & Linux) and Android, containing a rebalanced set of challenges that are well worth blasting through. Also, again, it's FREE. Credit to jaystan @ HUKD who spotted this earlier today.
You can also get Anomaly 2 for free if you spend over £5 in the sale! Click here to start browsing.
Civilization: Beyond Earth wasn't quite the return to form it could have been, but it's still a seriously enjoyable and unpredictable Sci-Fi 4X game. More importantly, though, you can now get it for the insanely low price of just £9.24.
Yes, the retailer is as legit as they come. No, there's no catch. No, you don't have to use a VPN. This is just one of those all-time great deals.
The IREM Arcade Hits Collection usually retails for £9.99, but you can grab this 18-game compilation for just €3 on DotEmu. DRM-free to boot.
You'll get Kung-Fu Master, Vigilante, Ninja Spirit,R-Type Leo, Air Duel, Battle Chopper, Cosmic Cop, Dragon Breed, Gunforce, Gunforce 2, Hammerin’ Harry, Image Fight, Legend of Hero Tonma, Mystic Riders, Undercover Cops, In the Hunt, Superior Soldiers and Blade Master!
Total War is now 15 years old, so to celebrate, Creative Assembly will let you download and play the entire franchise for free over the weekend! If you like what you play, you can then buy and keep the games at a serious discount.
The European Gaming League, a thriving network of eSports leagues with the worthy goal of promoting eSports, fair play and diversity, has teamed up with Get Games to offer 5% off all orders with their new voucher code. Just plug it into checkout and instantly knock some money off the bill.
While you're there, check out the Civilization Sale. Credit to cowbutt @ HUKD!
Remember Me has fallen to an astonishing £2.95 on PC without even needing a voucher code!
I recently played through Remember Me and found a lot to enjoy. Dontnod's take on a futuristic Paris is jaw-droppingly gorgeous and is what would happen if the worlds of Mirror's Edge and Blade Runner collided. The combat is meaty and the combo editor provides different power ups to suit your needs. You'll have fun remixing memory sequences too in order to influence people into believing a different series of events occurred. Overall, a very clever game that I feel shouldn't be passed by.
Take a look at my recent feature, Remember Me - A memory worth saving.
Missed the Steam Sale? GamersGate are giving us another chance to grab a Valkyria Chronicles Steam code for just £3.75. It's an amazing price for a legendary strategy RPG that finally made its way to PC after years of demand.
An utterly sensational game, both in terms of storyline, strategy, characters, mechanics and art style, and a steal at less than £4.
Thanks once again to jaystan @ HUKD!
GRID Autosport improves on its predecessor with superior handling (which is controversial, but I like it!), loads of cars and masses of events. Though the amount of DLC is aggravating and the progression structure is somewhat restrictive, this is still an excellent racing game. Read up on all the details in our GRID Autosport review.
Better yet, though, you can get a Steam code for just £6.25 at Bundle Stars, who'll also throw in a free mystery gift as part of their Strike Lucky Sale!
Be aware that, if you understand the arcane sorcery known as 'Virtual Private Networks', you can get the game cheaper but not qualify for the freebie. Thanks once again to jaystan @ HUKD!
Play the music and prepare to deploy, because XCOM 2 has received over ten minutes of gameplay footage direct from E3.
You'll watch the newly embattled team attempt to disrupt the Unification Day celebrations, marking humanity's defeat by the alien forces, seeing the new Ranger Class and procedurally generated maps in action. We crave it madly.Click here to read more...
IndieGameStand are one of our favourite indie success stories. They've grown from a plucky pay what you want initiative into a fully-fledged storefront with great prices and a varied selection. You can now save an extra 10% on store purchases with their new voucher code!
Note that the code doesn't affect the current pay what you want deal, because that would be silly. You're already paying whatever you fancy for Chainsaw Warrior... which is well worth a purchase, by the way.
Early Access is all about squashing bugs and giving feedback, but the developers of ARK: Survival Evolved are upping the ante by giving players $100 if they successfully report potential exploits, cheats and bugs.Click here to read more...
