Hey, CAG!


We've finally decided to make things permanent between us and this is going to be the main thread for all of our deals, we're not going to spam the deals page constantly anymore, hooray!


We're starting off strong with a big Ubisoft Sale with such quadruple A titles as Uno! But seriously, it has the Anno games, the Far Cry series and some largely forgotten older titles such as Driver or Brothers in Arms.


If you're a F2P player in Destiny 2, you might want to check out the Destiny DLC Sale with Forsaken and Shadowkeep!


If you're feeling like modern games lack the understading of what an arena shooter is, the Unreal Sale may help you out with the Unreal Deal Pack in particular containing everything you'd ever want


Finally, Dying Light: Enhanced Edition, Kenshi and Stalker Collection are all excellent choices albeit they're not best ever in terms of price. But God knows all of those three titles will get you a ton of bang for your buck!




As always, we'll update the thread with new deals soon, but if we've missed one and you'd like to share it or discuss a title - please, we'll be happy to hear from you!

Unreal series.

Unreal series is classic old-school shooter. Must play stuff, if you are tired or need a break from modern-style shooters. I don't really think U1 or U2 are that much of an arena shooter in the single-player campaign modes as they're more classics in style (especially U1), unless doing the MP portions. Unreal Tournament and the MP-focused stuff certainly are arena-style - and back in the day, were an absolute blast.


STALKER series.

Without any mods: tough as nails, even on easy. Absolute blast of a game. Absolutely memorable; atmospheric as can be; creepy as hell & scary (and I often don't scared at these kind of games); and one of those early FPS's that I think pioneered & championed the open-world experience for a FPS. Though, Boiling Point: Road To Hell (AKA Xenus 1 - starring Arnold Vosloo of Mummy series fame; and man do I love that game's theme) was probably first and had more RPG elements in there (as you have stats and stuff of that sort). Regardless, STALKER series is great and certainly felt like it was fresh and one of a kind when it came out. A must-play series, for open-world FPS fans and fans that want something that's tough as nails.


For me - STALKER: SOC and Call of Pripyat are the best ones in the series. SOC (Shadow of Chernobyl) felt fresh as can be and so new when it came out; Call of Pripyat felt like a much more polished experience than any of the others. Sure, Clear Sky is good b/c it's more STALKER: SOC - but it felt like it rehashed, remixed, and whatnot lots of maps, areas, and assets from SOC; and some of the new ideas here (i.e. Faction Wars) and the engine felt half-baked and/or unpolished. Still, don't write Clear Sky off - it feels more like an expansion than anything; and it's still good being that it's more STALKER.


Far Cry series.

Where to begin? A very consistent series.


Starting w/ Far Cry 1 from Crytek, absolutely revolutionary game engine and FPS at that time - feels like the precursor to the eventual open-world FPS's that came afterwards. With huge open-spaced maps & not-entirely always linear levels to battle in and go through; and looked great when it came out. Story was nothing special, but the game was.


With Crytek gone (off to go do Crysis with EA), Ubi made Far Cry 2, which followed in the footsteps of other open-world FPS's like STALKER series and Xenus/Boiling Point series - which was good, but didn't feel like it was entirely there yet. Too many cut & paste side-quests, which was also a problem especially in AC1 - i.e. the common Ubi problem. It was disappointing to me, but still good...and having the potential to become great.


Enter Far Cry 3. To me, still the best one in the series; and the formula that most FC games follow. Open-world FPS; lots of variety in side-quests; and an amazing villain. Michael Mando (Nacho from Better Call Saul) is amazing and iconic in this role, as the crazed pirate. To me, this was FC series at its best. Sure, FC4 is really good; has a great villain in Pagan Min (played by Troy Baker); and is probably more polished than FC3 - but it's more FC3 but in Kyrat (i.e. their version of India). It just didn't have the magic that FC3 did and the fresh-ness FC3 has. Yes, FC5 is really good also and also has a cool villain (Joseph Seed, played by Gregory Michael Bryk).


Dying Light.

Did you like Dead Island? Dying Light is that, but better. Dead Island was basically an open-world first-person action/ARPG; it was mostly focused on melee. Basically, this is Dead Island and much more improved w/ polish and new features. With day & night cycles; better feeling combat; polish; and parkour elements - it feels like a more urban Dead Island. And it's awesome.


And, I need to finish it, at some point.

No super special deals at the start of this week, but if you've been waiting for a discount on those games, they are decent, just nothing special:


-Kalypso has Tropico 6 with a 40% discount

-Codemasters are great if you're into racing games, such as F1 or DiRT

-THQ Nordic is interesting, you can get Titan Quest Anniversary Editions and its DLC, as well as the Risen trilogy

-PQUBE has some fun anime games, such as Gal*Gun 2, Cat Quest, Punch Line and others


If you spot an lower profile indie with a good price - let us know! We want to promote lesser-known games as well!

THQ Nordic stuff.

I've always been a fan of the Gothic and Risen series. Namely, the ones Piranha Bytes developed - i.e. Gothic 1+2+3; and Risen 1+2+3.


Gothic series.

I loved Gothic 1 back in the day (it felt ground-breaking back then when NPC's on their own schedules and interacting w/ the environment and NPC's; and with full fledged voice-acting in an action-packed and choice-important RPG); really liked Gothic 2; like Gothic 3 despite its technical problems back then (it runs better now on newer hardware and w/ newer official patches & community patches installed). Quick-save like crazy, b/c you never know when you'll make a decision and think you should re-do that; and/or run into a mob that is hard-coded and out-leveling you by a mile just from taking one "wrong turn" on the game-world/map.


Risen series.

I really enjoyed Risen 1 and think it's their best game since Gothic 1. Risen 2's quite good, though its control scheme takes some time to get used to and regular magic is gone & replaced with voodoo magic (I wish it had both magics, TBH - but Risen 3 fixes that). Risen 3's good - it's basically more Risen 2 remixed and rehashed, but also with some actual traditional magic too. But still, Risen 3's good and bought dirt-cheap like it is now ($5.00), treat it like it really is: a stand-alone expansion.


Titan Quest.

Titan Quest is basically a Diablo clone, but instead with Greek Mythology and a different class/skill system. If that sounds good to you, it's one of the best Diablo-style clones (isometric looter-ARPG's) out there - along with say Torchlight 1 and 2. I have played TQ: Gold/Anniversary, but haven't got around to buying Atlantis and Ragnarok.

Long time no see!


We currently have a Resident Evil 3 sale where the game is at a pretty darn good 50% off. We'd like to sweeten the deal and throw in another 7% with promo code "RE3-C", making the end price $27.09 / €27.09 / £23.25


Our Far Cry Sale has all of the Far Cry games to date, including the older ones and small bundles with FC5 + New Dawn

The THQ Nordic prices are great, with special mentions to Quantum Break and Desperados III Deluxe Edition which is at the best-ever price point
Finally, Out of the Park Baseball 21 is at the best-ever price point as well, it's a niche title, but great nonetheless
