Steam Powered: Monster Summer Sale – Up to 80% Off

Posted by on June 11, 2015 at 7:30 PM

Steam Powered: Monster Summer Sale   Up to 80% Off

Steam Powered just started their monster games sale today with up to 80% off games. There are new games on sale every day with some sales lasting for 24 hours, some sales lasting for 12 hours, and some sales ongoing.

I do not know what games are popular right now, thus I headed down to the best sellers section to get a clue. The Metro Redux Bundle at 80% off seems like a steal. This bundle includes both Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux. Originally $54.99, this bundle is now on sale for $10.99. You could purchase the games individual (as they are only on sale that way) but you pay less when you just buy them bundled together.

Next, try out the Homeworld Remastered Collection. This is a pretty intense space game with killer visuals. Build your fleet of awesome war ships and go on over 30 tactical missions. Originally $38.69, Homeworld Remastered is now on sale for $15.46. This game is addictive as this player says:

Without a doubt my favorite PC game ever. Homeworld games are works of art.
I still remember all the jobs I lost and exams I failed because of the multiplayer alone. Now I have a wife and a son. I am going to miss them

This massive Valve Complete Pack is part of the summer sale. The pack is loaded with 24 games to truly absorb all your time and make you forget that you actually have a life. The following games are included in this bundle: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Portal 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Left 4 Dead, Portal, Team Fortress 2, Team Fortress Classic, Counter-Strike: Source, Counter-Strike, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, Day of Defeat, Day of Defeat: Source, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Half-Life, Half-Life: Blue Shift, Half-Life: Opposing Force, Half-Life Deathmatch: Source, Half-Life: Source, Ricochet, Deathmatch Classic.

While some of the above deals are time limited, The Valve Complete Pack is on sale through the rest of the sale. Originally $109.99, pay just $27.49 for 24 awesome games. This is seriously a hot deal.

Some new games are included in the sale. Grand Theft Auto V & Great White Shark Cash Card is also a best seller. Originally $89.98, the game is now on sale for $67.48. This game is still a bit expensive in my books.

Individual deals have different expiry dates.

Humble Bundle: Atari Weekend up to 75% Off

Posted by on June 6, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Humble Bundle: Atari Weekend up to 75% Off

Check out the Atari weekend sale at Humble Bundle. Save up to 75% on Atari games including Ghostbusters, RollerCoaster Tycoon, Test Drive Unlimited, and more.

First, let us go with game titles I recognize. RollerCoaster Tycoon has been around since I can remember, and you can score a great deal on several different games. All games you buy from Humble Bundle come with This RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack is on sale from $9.99 down to $3.99. The previous edition is a bit cheaper: RollerCoaster Tycoon: Deluxe is on sale from $5.99 down to $2.39. Now, if you are a true Tycoon fan, you probably own both these titles already but you might not own the latest. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum is now on sale from $19.99 down to $7.99.

I price compared directly with Steam where these games retail for:

  • RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack: $10.99
  • RollerCoaster Tycoon: Deluxe: $6.49
  • RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum $23.99

There is a slight difference in currencies: Humble Bumble charges USD where Steam charges CAD. However, even with that difference, the Humble Bundle prices are substantially better.

If you want the ultimate cool game where people call on you for your special set of skills, then try Ghostbusters: The Video Game on sale from $9.99 down to $2.99. The same game on Steam costs $10.99. Reviews on this game are very positive. Most reviewers see this game as the equivalent of the third Ghostbusters movie that never was. With voice over by the original actors and animation using the original character’s features, this game will feel like you are in the movie. As one reviewer said:

This game IT’S the third Ghostbusters movie. You have the original cast, a good story that follows the previous movies and a good gameplay that lets you enjoy it.

There are plenty of other games on sale as well. Yars’ Revenge was $9.99 and is now $2.49. Test Drive Unlimited 2 is certainly a game I would like to play. I really enjoy racing games – probably because I love the cars so much. Originally $19.99, the game is on sale for $4.99. The same game costs $21.99 on Steam.

This is a great sale for picking up some Atari games. The prices are better than they are on Steam right now – up to 75% – and the sale is on for a couple more days.

Steam Powered: 80% off Strategy First Games

Posted by on May 12, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Steam Powered: 80% off Strategy First Games

Steam Powered is hosting an anniversary sale for video game publisher Strategy First. Many of you will not know this, but Strategy First is a Canadian video game publisher out of Montreal, Quebec. The company is most known for the Disciples series, Jagged Alliance series, O.R.B: Off-World Resource Base, and Space Empires series. Right now, you can score 80% off a vast selection of Strategy First games.

Seriously, this is a wicked deal! If you are into their well-known titles, then you will not be disappointed. Disciples II: Gallean’s Return and Disciples II: Rise of the Elves are both on sale from $7.79 down to $1.55 per game. While these are slightly older games (2006), they both achieved Metascores of 80+ and they are also an inexpensive purchase for a night of gaming: less than a toonie each!

You may think this is just a sale of old games, and you would be wrong. Empress Of The Deep is a strategy, adventure, and hidden object game where you solve puzzles, find hidden clues, and more. The game usually retails for $5.49, but it is on sale for $1.09 right now. One reviewer said:

Empress of the Deep is a quick dip into a still, ancient, underwater world. It’s a little like Amerzone with more water and hidden objects, which makes it a happy light entertainment for, say, downtime at work, which is where I played it in 15- and 20-minute slices.

I also like the visuals and theme of Hunters Of The Dead. In it, you need to rescue fellow hunters and then, together, hunt down and destroy Dracula. People say this is a rogue type game with good graphics and weapons. However, the upgrade system seems a bit out of balance. Originally $5.49, the game is on sale for $1.09.

There seem to be plenty of small indie games included in this sale. If you like hidden-object games, then there are plenty of games to choose from. There are also many mini adventure games that will take you a few hours to complete. Whether you like gods, war, fantasy, or something else… there are many different themes to choose from as well. Unfortunately, I did not see anything unicorn based but this  Avoid – Sensory Overload game for $1.09 comes very close. I used an image from the game as the banner above.

Enjoy all these games and more during this weeklong sale.

Steam Powered: The Witcher Game Franchise Up to 85% Off

Posted by on May 9, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Steam Powered: The Witcher Game Franchise Up to 85% Off

This weekend, Steam has discounted The Witcher game franchise 50% to 85% off the original game prices. This is a great time to pick up The Witcher games in anticipation for the release of The Witcher III.

The choice is not which The Witcher game you will pick up because you will probably buy both of them, and then add on The Witcher: adventure Game just for kicks. The first two games are only going to cost you a bit of pocket change really.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut

This is the game that started it all – except in an enhanced edition (which is the new norm.). Originally $10.99, the game is now on sale for $1.64.This is a fun RPG where you play a legendary monster slayer on the hunt. The game is both Mac and PC compatible. Metascores are one of the best ways to rate the strength of a game and The Witcher 1 received an 86/100 score: very solid. As one reviewer says:

Do yourself a favor and play The Witcher if you love games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition

If you are going to whet your appetite on The Witcher 1, you might as well buy The Winter 2 as well. Originally $21.99, the game is now on sale for $3.29. You pay under $5 for both these games. This edition has an even better Metascore than its predecessor, garnering an 88/100 rating. One reviewer said:

The Witcher 2 is by far one of best RPG games I’ve ever played. Open world game play, great environment and amazing story and More than 2-3 endings. I would recommend this game to any fans of the witcher games or any RPG fans.

The Witcher Adventure Game

Lastly, we have The Witcher adventure game that was just released last November. This game is only 50% off opposed to the other two that are 85% off. Originally $10.99, the game is on sale for $5.49. This is a bit different from the other games in that:

The Witcher Adventure Game is a digital adaptation of CD PROJEKT RED’s board game set in the brutal fantasy universe of monster slayer Geralt of Rivia.

I actually think that turning The Witcher into a board game is cool. I rather enjoy board games but there are rarely enough people around to play them.

Steam: Up to 96% Off Games Sale – Games Starting @ 21¢

Posted by on April 29, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Steam: Up to 96% Off Games Sale   Games Starting @ 21¢

Check out the weeklong games sale at Steam Powered for up to 96% off Steam games.

There are indeed games discounted for 96% off in this sale. The Hat Man: Shadow Ward is on sale from $5.49 down to just 21¢! While the reviews on this indie survival horror game are mixed, it will certainly give you several hours of entertainment for less than a quarter.

For 90% off, you can score the Frederic Bundle with two great indie games in it. Originally $10.99, the bundle will only cost you $1.09. The games are on sale individually as well, but you save an extra $0.42 with the bundle.

Are you screaming for some mainstream content yet? Well, there are plenty of games that even I have heard about in this sale. I am not a fan of first-person shooter or anything that comes close to war, horror, etc. but these titles are quite familiar to me.

You can also purchase Dragon Age: Origins for slightly more than the Awakening edition. Originally $19.99, Origins is on sale for $4.99. There are many raving reviews on the Dragon Age series, and one reviewer things that Origins is the best that you can get:

If you are a fan of rpg’s then you cannot let this game pass and give it a try, it has a really full lore in it for those that love it as well as a easy learning curve (gameplay wise) out of all the DA games this one is pretty much the best of all, sure it’s the first one and the others may have some improvements but they don’t get that feeling of accomplishment that this one gave.

I think that out of all the games above, I would be most interested in trying Dragon Age. It is a fighting game, but you get to go up against cool looking evil creatures, dragons, and an arch-demon. Overall, that sounds like a great Saturday afternoon of gaming. At this price, each game costs less than a ticket to the movies. I can even make my own popcorn at home and eat it in my pyjamas.

There are four whole pages of sale games to choose from. I highly recommend this sale if you are looking to expand your game collection.

Steam Powered: 75% Off The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Now $5.49 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 26, 2015 at 11:56 AM

Steam Powered: 75% Off The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim   Now $5.49 (EXPIRED)

Steam Powered is offer 75% off the highly celebrated The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Originally $21.99, the game is on sale for only $5.49.

This game is one of the best. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim earned a Metacritic score of 94/100. However, Skyrim has had a recent flash of negative reviews on Steam Powered. What is up with that? Well, it appears that Steam is now charging people for mods and the gamers are afraid that this will result in a plethora of crappy mods that people just threw together to make a quick buck. Thus, the negative reviews are not of the actual game itself, but rather this recent change from free DLC to paid DLC mods.

As one reviewer put it:

Once upon a time there was a game called The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it was a very good game with a loving, creative community around it. That community was now ruined by the Pay4Mods plague…

There is some serious hate going on over the paid mods update.

Now, if you can handle paying for your mods or do not like downloading that many mods to start with – this is an excellent deal for the game. I price compared with all iterations of the game on Amazon Canada. The cheapest Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was for the Xbox 360 @ $17.91. The PC version retails for $28.52 @ Amazon Canada.

Trying to find cheaper, I visited best Buy Canada. They offer previously played versions for $14.99, but this is still nowhere near Steam’s price. Recycled editions on EB Games also retail for $14.99 each. Of course, these prices ignore shipping costs. Obviously, it is cheapest to buy the game on Steam’s platform with this sale.

If you want a bigger package, then you should pick up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Legendary Edition for 66% off its retail price. Originally $43.99, the legendary edition is on sale from $14.95. EB Games has the recycled version of this game for $34.99. I also found other console versions for $38+ at Best Buy Canada and Amazon Canada. I am not sure you can get this game cheaper anywhere else.

This deal ends tomorrow, so scoop it up while you have the chance.

66% Off Age of Wonders III – Now $14.95 @ Steam

Posted by on April 14, 2015 at 8:31 PM

66% Off Age of Wonders III   Now $14.95 @ Steam

Age of Wonders is the first graphic based game I EVER played… over 10 years ago. Today, I am happy to bring you a sweet deal on the newest reiteration of the popular game. Age of Wonders III is on sale from 43.99 down to only $14.95.

To be honest, I played an Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic. It is not exactly part of the “I, II, III” series but it was a brilliant game in itself. If you have ever played Heroes of Might and Magic… you will be familiar with this type of game. Except, Age of Wonders is far more in depth than Heroes. It marries several different game types together: empire building, role playing, and warfare. I somewhat think of it as the unholy love child of Sid Meier’s Civilization and Heroes of Might and Magic.

The role-playing portion of the game is quite cool and very nostalgic. You choose from six RPG style leader classes:

  • Sorcerer
  • Theocrat
  • Rogue
  • Warlord
  • Archdruid
  • Dreadnought

You will find allies from within many species you are already quite familiar with. These species are classic in fantasy: Humans, High Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Goblins, and Draconians.

The game is fairly ‘simple': explore the land, battle and gain treasure, create new settlements, use magic, and have a blast! As one reviewer says:

This game is absolutely incredible. It stays true to the style and feel of the previous games in the series, while also embracing some of the more modern elements in the 4X genre…. While this game is very easy to learn, and keeps most of the numbers and math pretty simple, there is an incredible amount of strategic depth to this game, and even after over 500 hours played, with 90% of that focusing on just *one* class, I am still learning new things.

Seriously, I am drooling. Though I am not sure if I have the time to be addicted to a new game, this one is damn tempting.

Now, I am the sort of person who cannot just get the base game. I am sort of addicted to downloadable content, so I would want to buy the DLCs for Age of Wonders III. Thankfully, the DLCs are also on sale – though not for as much. I could also buy the Age of Wonders III: Deluxe Edition, which comes with Dragon’s Throne Stand-Alone Scenario and the two-hour official soundtrack – it is also 66% off retail price.

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Future Soldier – Only $4.99

Posted by on March 15, 2015 at 4:44 PM

Steam Powered: 75% Off Tom Clancys Ghost Recon Future Soldier   Only $4.99

Steam Powered has a crazy deal on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier for the PC. Originally $19.99, the game is now only $4.99. At 75% off, you will not find a better price for this game on any console.

Price comparing is not as hard as I thought it would be. Walmart Canada has the PC version (digital code) for $19.97. I also price compared across a few platforms to give you an idea of what is out there. The Sony Playstation Store sells the PS3 version for $19.99 (digital version). Tiger Direct sells the PS3 version for $22.47 plus shipping. EB Games has both the Xbox and PS3 versions refurbished for $9.95 plus shipping.

The most competitive deal right now is from good ol’ Amazon Canada. The PC version is currently $9.99 + $4.99 shipping (from marketplace seller). The PS3 version is on sale from $19.99 down to $7.91. This is the best deal I saw on the PS3 version, so pick it up if you have that console!

For the PC, this is the best deal you are going to find. The tag-line “only the dead fight fair” is pretty appropriate for this war game. Join a special team of soldiers geared up with the latest in technological combat gear. The odds are not in your favour so you had better work your butt off to even them out a little. The reviews for this couple year old game are positive. One reviewer says:

Tactical 3rd person shooters have always interested me, and not a single Ghost Recon game has disappointed me. I always walked away satisfied and craving for more fun as a future soldier.

There are but a few complaints. One person said that the multi-player section is pretty dead with few to no players available. The only other ‘major complaint’ concerns length. Many reviewers wished the game were a little longer. This is a plus as well – you only want games you enjoy to last. If you do not like the game, you will think it cannot end soon enough.

Many of the original reviews for the game were quite negative due to bugs that Ubisoft was a little late on fixing. Make sure you check out the more recent reviews for an accurate assessment of the game.

50% Off Borderlands The Pre-Sequel – Now Just $30 @ Steam SteamOS Sale (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 8, 2015 at 10:20 PM

50% Off Borderlands The Pre Sequel   Now Just $30 @ Steam SteamOS Sale (EXPIRED)

Ready for some Borderlands fun? Borderlands The Pre-Sequel is 50% off during Steam Powered’s SteamOS Sale and it can be yours for just $29.99 instead of the regular $59.99 price tag.

Now, lest you be fooled, Borderlands The Pre-Sequel isn’t the first instalment by any means and luckily, you could try the one that came out before it for just $5.49 as it’s 75% off right now as well. Originally priced at $21.99, Borderlands 2 is a highly rated game throughout the entire web. It’s praised for its fun gunplay and most notably, for an open world that is filled with loads of hidden things to explore. Plus, the best part about this game is that it can be played over and over again without it ever getting boring.

To get back to the Pre-Sequel though, reviews are mixed. If you played the previous instalment, then you’re definitely going to want to try this one as this reviewer’s comment sums it up the best?

So, good news and bad news. The bad news is that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel plays pretty much like a big expansion pack for Borderlands 2. The good news on the other hand is that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel plays pretty much like a big expansion pack for Borderlands 2.

In other words, if you liked Borderlands 2 and you want some more of that (with some fun new additions like laser weapons, new elemental effects, low-gravity fun and all-new environments) this should be a no-brainer.

The $30 current price tag is also the lowest we have seen thus far. At both Amazon and Best Buy, the PC version is priced at $39.95 right now.

This price reduction is part of the SteamOS Sale during which you can also save up to 80% off plenty of other games like:

The Evil Within Was $66.50 | Now $22.60 @ Steam Powered

Posted by on March 3, 2015 at 3:00 PM

The Evil Within Was $66.50 | Now $22.60 @ Steam Powered

The Evil Within was just released in October, so this deal is on a fairly new game. Originally $66.49, it is on sale for just $22.60 CAN at Steam Powered.

It is pretty hard to compare prices on digital downloads with their physical equals. However, you are getting the same game – just for a different console. I located some PC versions at local stores to price compare with:

  • $59.95 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $59.95 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $34.99 + $4.99 Shipping @ Amazon.ca (marketplace)
  • $69.99 @ EB Games
  • $69.96 @ Walmart Canada

As you can see, Steam Powered has the best price for the PC version of this game. Even for console versions, the lowest I have seen the game was $30 in this sale Margarita blogged about a bit ago.

This game is pretty scary. If you are not into gore, horror, and mass murder – then you might want to pick another game. As one critic on Metascore said:

The Evil Within has achieved something that not many games have lately: It scared me. Thanks for Mikami-san!

I am not into games that scare me so I have not even watched the trailer for this game. I do know that Detective Sebastian Castellanos is investigating some horrific murders when things go from bad to worse. He witnesses the slaughter of his fellow officers, gets knocked unconscious, and wakes up immersed in a world of hideous creatures and the dead. This is not a game to play before bedtime kiddies!

Now, there is a lot of people who love the game and those who hate it. You must be into psychological horror to enjoy this game. Also, many reviews for the game came out pre-patch. This patch fixed some of the major complaints including black borders to make it feel ‘cinematic’ and some issues with awards not coming through if you were in different modes.

Now, most reviewers will lay out the pros and the cons. One reviewer said:

It is very heavily action focussed which depending on your tastes can be good or bad. Stealth is present, but feels shoehorned in and can sometimes be unreliable. The gunplay feels satisfying and can be quite tense when missing a headshot with low ammo, especially on the harder difficulties.

Many reviewers also say that the storyline is confusing but as you progress in the game it becomes clearer. Now, if this game is not your cup of tea, Resident Evil 5 is also on sale from $19.99 down to $6.80.

Star Wars Humble Bundle – Pay What You Want ($28 Value)

Posted by on February 3, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Star Wars Humble Bundle   Pay What You Want ($28 Value)

Humble Bundle always has fantastic bundles available where you can pay what you want for the games. However, when I saw a special Star Wars edition pop up in my in box, I just knew I had to mention it. Pay what you want (seriously!) for three Star Wars games on Steam.

You can purchase the first three Star Wars games in this bundle for as low as $0.01. Those games are:

Now, that is a great little bundle there. You get three games – total value of $28.47 – for whatever you want to pay for them. If you love storm troopers, the Death Star, a certain Dark Lord, and more… these games are going to be just what the doctor ordered.

These are not some B-rated games either. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has a Metacritic score of 93/100. The reviews on Steam are also very positive with many reviewers declaring it the best Star Wars game ever:

1.Amazing Story
2.Great and Addictive Combat
3.Tons Of Side Quests
and finally 4. BEST GAME I EVER PLAYED!!!!!!!!!

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is no slouch either with an 81/100 metascore and overwhelmingly positive user reviews on Steam. The reviewers love both the single-player mode and the incredible multiplayer community that still draws a following many years after the game was published.

Lastly, Star Wars: Dark Forces is a smaller game with very positive user reviews as well. This is an older game (1995), so expect the graphics to represent the times, but you will still enjoy the good game play and solid story line. You may even make it past level one this time around.

But wait, there is more! If you pay over the average (currently $10.27), then you will unlock three more Star Wars Games. On top of that, if you pay $12 for the bundle then you receive an additional three games (one is a Gold pack). According to Humble Bundle, for a mere $12 you can have $111 worth of Star Wars games. I have to say, that is a pretty hot deal.

If you want to gift this bundle to a deserving friend or family member, then just remember to check the appropriate box at the bottom.

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

Posted by on February 1, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

I mentioned a bit ago that there are often ‘Free to Play’ games available on Steam. They change over often so there is often something new and exciting to try out in your spare time. However, there are also some completely free games on Steam. That means they are yours not only to play, but also to keep.

Usually these games are pretty short and they are all indie games. However, it is a great way to experiment with new genres, ideas, and just have some free fun. Here are just a few of the games available for free:

This is just a taste of the free games available to play on Steam right now. To find others, go to Steam Search and type in “free to play” – you can also type in “free” but it gives you 3x the results and most aren’t free. The “Free to play” search will bring up all the free to play and the actually free games. You can see the difference in the screen capture below:

Canadian Freebies: Absolutly Free Games on Steam

The first two games are actually free – to keep – while the third is only free to play but could be withdrawn at a later time. I just picked out the first eight I saw, but there are loads of these games on Steam just waiting for you to find them. There is no need to throw money at Steam for anything but your favourites when there are plenty of free options.

I am downloading Sigils of Elohim as we speak. I LOVE puzzles games but my old favourite (Jewels of the Oracle) is very outdated and they really have not come out with anything to equal its splendour. I am hoping this sweet little free puzzle game will be just the distraction I need when I want to relax.

I will probably download Amoung Ripples as well. It is a cool little indie game where you control a pond’s ecosystem by adding different creatures to it. See how your creatures interact and create a cool little underwater eco-system. This is also a fun game to entertain your cats.

Canadian Freebie: Free Radical Roach on Steam @ Indie Gala

Do you love free games? Then request your free Steam Key for Radical Roach Deluxe Edition at Indie Gala. The game is valued at $7.79, but is on sale for $1.16 this week at Steam Powered. No matter what you want to consider the ‘value’ of this game, either way you will pay $0 for it.

The steps are simple. Enter your email address in the banner near the top of the page that shows the free Steam giveaway. You can uncheck the newsletter box if you do not want to be subscribed. Click “Redeem” and then fill out the captcha. You will then receive two emails. Click through one to access your Indie profile and find the Steam Key redemption area through there. It should look something like this:

Then you just click the Steam button and it will take you through the redemption process for your key. You can also gift the key to someone else. However, once you do that you will be unable to access it yourself.

According to Steam, Radical Roach is a:

fast paced shoot em’ up, set minutes after nuclear hell falls from the sky engulfing all but a few tough little bugs.

The game was just released in May and features a very explicit warning that the game is HARD. This is a single-player game where you need to defeat a barrage of enemies on every level. There are no power-ups so things are going to get bad in a hurry. Some people complain about the lack of variation on the game, that each level is like the previous one (except harder), while others praise the funny artwork, fun characters, and interesting story line.

I think the art looks pretty cool and the price is right. So why not pick this little game up and add it to your collection? I have no idea when this deal will end, so you better take advantage of it sooner rather than miss out.
