Bargain Thread 2019


PSN North America is having a Flash Sale until Friday until Monday 8am PT.
Featuring many games I’ve never heard of. These might be interesting (PS4 unless otherwise noted):
Hollow Knight USD 9.89.
Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition USD 9.99.
Mad Max USD 4.99.
Raw Data VR USD 15.99.
Street Fighter V Arcade Edition USD 19.99.
Zero Escape: The Nonary Games PS4: USD 14.99 VIta: USD 11.99.
Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma USD 19.99


I adored this. Don’t hesitate to grab it.


Fanatical Star Deal today is Civilization VI Gold for a historic low of $26.89. Gold contains the base game, plus 6 Civilization/Scenario packs, plus the Rise and Fall expansion (all as a single Steam key). That’s a great deal.

If you’re a loot box gambler, Fanatical also has the Deluxe Mystery Game for $3.99. The description claims you’ll receive a “Top AAA or Indie title from some of the best Steam developers and publishers”. I don’t know what that means, other than it’s less likely that you’ll receive Bad Rats!.

Humble Store Winter Sale has Grim Dawn on 24 hour flash sale for only $4.49 (with Monthly discount).


Ah ha, I knew if I waited long enough something like this would come along! To the backlog with you!

  • BTA (around $5 currently) and add : This War of Mine, Dear Esther and Ken Follett’s Pillars of the Earth

That’s a great deal for $12!


I KNOW you’ve been waiting to save 18% on Gloomhaven!


Is Gloomhaven good for just 2 or 3 people? Do you need someone to DM?


Three would probably be good. Two might not be. I played with four, and it was great at that number. DM not needed.


My wife and I play it and like it a lot.


Fanatical has a new Reaper Bundle live. $4.99 for Steam Keys to:

  • Immortal Redneck
  • Homeworld Remastered Collection
  • Tomb of Annihilation : Tales from Candlekeep
  • PayDay 2
  • Subterrain
  • Renowned Explorers International Society
  • Jalopy
  • Hover
  • Figment
  • Dungeon Rats

This is one of the best $5 bundles I’ve seen in a while. Homeworld Remastered, Tomb of Annihilation, Renowned Explorers, Immortal Redneck and Subterrain are all games well worth $5 each…to get them all plus the others for $5 is just ridiculous.

The Fanatical Star Deal today is Hitman : GOTY for $10.99 (80%).

IndieGala has a new Hump Day Bundle for $3.99 that features (among others) a trio of worthwhile games from Frozenbytes : Shadwen (stealth action), Shadowgrounds (top-down action) and Deep Sixed (roguelike space sim). Deep Sixed is recommended by our own resident Spaceman, @BrianRubin.

GOG is having a Hot Sale. The big standout is Witcher 3 GOTY for $14.99, which is a historic low I believe. Plenty of other decent DRM-free deals are featured, and they are giving away Distraint : Deluxe Edition for FREE for a limited time.


Worth it alone just for Dungeon Rats!


True! For those who don’t know, Dungeon Rats is a turn-based tactical RPG set in the Age of Decadence world.


That is a hell of a bundle! Welcome (soon) to my backlog.


I am fairly certain that is the historic low. The Witcher 3 GOTY has not dropped below $19.99 in years and I have been waiting for that particular stubborn levee to breach. Patience has been rewarded. Praise Geraldo.


Witcher 3 has been sitting on my hard drive for over a year. I guess it’s enough for me to know that I could play the game if I wanted to.


Humble Store is giving away Deponia : The Complete Journey for FREE for 48 hours.

Steam Weekend Deals are live:

All things Dragon Ball Z are on sale for 60%-75% off.

Play Endless Titles free all weekend, with up to 90% off when you purchase. Looks like some kind of promo attached to playing Endless Space 2 as well, free bonus content for the games as Steam players collectively unlock hours played or some such.

The Daily Deal is the Shadowrun Franchise, with 75% off each title and an additional 20% if you buy the Complete Collection Bundle. It’s a magic Steam bundle, so you can nab the extra discount and only pay for the items you don’t already own.

They also seem to have having an Aussie Sale on games from Australian developers and publishers. I’m not even going to start about the irony of discounting games from Australia given the price of games in Australia.


There’s a free game on GOG that you won’t recognize1 and will never, ever, play. But you’re gonna click this link anyway. You disgusting animal.

1: “Distraint”. Told you.


Ha! Joke’s on you - I clicked that link yesterday.
