GAMES ON THE CHEAP: AUGUST 2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more This month there is something to enjoy across all of the major players. Humble Bundle are killing it with some amazing packages. For those of you who want to get into making games or are interested in having a play around with the source code of some existing games, the The Humble GameMaker Rebundle is a must. The Humble Saints Row Bundle has a whole range of fun games, with some excellent ones at the low price entry fee. For me, any time Bayonetta comes back into the spotlight is a win. I just hope things like this are more steps on the path towards Bayonetta 3. While I hold Bayonetta 2 in higher regard (it's about as perfect as action and controlling gets), the first entry in the series is also tight with the controls and contains incredible action, all thrown together with amazing enemy design. That said, the character herself and the story will not be for everyone. Over on PlayStation, Just Cause 3 is a super fun game that will tickle the fancy of GTA players of old. Just look at the featured image above! Here are the GAMES ON THE CHEAP for August 2017 Xbox Games With Gold Out from the 1st Slime Rancher - Xbox One Runbow - Xbox One Bayonetta - Xbox 360 Out from the 16th Trials…

GAMES ON THE CHEAP: JULY 2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more This month for GAMES ON THE CHEAP July 2017, PlayStation has come forward with a nice selection of games. This includes the horror hit, Until Dawn, Telltale's Game of Thrones and (the weird) Tokyo Jungle. Over at Humble Monthly, DARK SOULS II: Scholar of the First Sin is this month's known included game. Also, Steam are doing their Summer Sale thing. Way too many deals to mention. Personally, I'm looking forward to playing through Until Dawn and Grow Up, as well as playing LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean with my son. Check out the full list below. Here are the GAMES ON THE CHEAP for July 2017 Xbox Games With Gold Out from the 1st GROW UP – Xbox One Kane & Lynch 2 – Xbox 360 Out from the 16th Runbow – Xbox One LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean – Xbox One https://youtu.be/KIDQYVBsqPI PlayStation Plus Until Dawn – PS4 Telltale's: Game of Thrones – PS4 That's You! - PS4 PlayLink Tokyo Jungle - PS3 Darkstalkers Resurrection - PS3 Element4l - PS Vita Don't Die, Mr Robot - PS Vita https://youtu.be/7utrujtTGQk  Humble Bundle Humble Software Bundle Not games, so not the sort of thing that we normally mention in the GAMES ON THE CHEAP each month, but worth looking over to see if anything strikes your fancy.

GAMES ON THE CHEAP: JUNE 2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more GAMES ON THE CHEAP June 2017 has some great games across all platforms, with a fun freebie thrown in the mix. The one to get this month is Life is Strange on PS4. With the recent announcement of Life is Strange 2, this makes perfect sense as a pick. Hopefully this sort of addition upon the impending release of a sequel becomes standard for future games services. Also, you can't go wrong with either of the Humble Bundles out at the moment. Plenty of diversity there, with a lot of absolutely fantastic games. Finally, SpeedRunners on the Xbox One is a fantastically fun and fast local couch coop game. I personally enjoyed Dragon Age: Origins too, although I don't think it's for everyone. Check out the full list below. Here are the GAMES ON THE CHEAP for June 2017 Xbox Games With Gold Out from the 1st Assassin's Creed III – Xbox 360 SpeedRunners – Xbox One Phantom Dust free multiplayer DLC pack - Xbox One Out from the 16th Dragon Age: Origins – Xbox 360 Watch_Dogs – Xbox One https://youtu.be/0LRBtWN0bfs PlayStation Plus Life is Strange - PS4 Killing Floor 2 - PS4 https://youtu.be/5X665z7GepI  Humble Bundle Humble Adult Swim Games Bundle Pay what you want for: Small Radios Big Televisions WASTED Westerado: Double Barreled Volgarr the Viking Pay more than the average (of $7.40 at time of writing) to also unlock!

GAMES ON THE CHEAP: MAY 2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more GAMES ON THE CHEAP has some pretty sweet picks for May 2017. The standout of this solid list is my 2014 Game of the Year, Tales from the Borderlands (as part of the PlayStation Plus PS4 lineup). If you've listened to our VERSUS PLAYER podcast you've heard me talk about the style, humour and fun story that had me hooked the whole way through. I can't recommend this game enough. And no, you don't need to have played the Borderlands games before. Getting the incredible INSIDE (one of my top three games of last year) as part of Humble Monthly is a nice get too. Then there is the whole Xbox Games with Gold lineup. Great games all round, with LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga being a fun game to play with your kids (check out our GAMING WITH THE KIDS: LEGO VIDEO GAMES article here). Check out the full list below. Here are the GAMES ON THE CHEAP for May 2017 Xbox Games With Gold Out from the 1st Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II – Xbox 360 Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Director's Cut – Xbox One Out from the 16th LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga – Xbox 360 Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris – Xbox One https://youtu.be/DDpW_HSu45g PlayStation Plus Tales from the Borderlands - PS4 Abzu - PS4 Laser Disco Defenders…

GAMES ON THE CHEAP: APRIL 2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more And just like that GAMES ON THE CHEAP has come back with some great games across the board! While there are a few standouts that I'm personally looking forward to playing, there are also a few games that I loved when I played them upon release that are on offer in April. My main recommendation here is picking up the HUMBLE Hooked on Multiplayer BUNDLE at the top tier (only USD$10). Not only will you get Helldivers, you'll also pick up Tricky Towers, a fun multiplayer take on Tetris. Then there is the HUMBLE Monthly BUNDLE giving away The Witness. PlayStation have gone two months in a row with one of their offerings being a newly released game, this time being (the long in beta but awesome looking) Drawn to Death. You also can't go wrong with the Xbox Live games, with the second season of Telltale's The Walking Dead being offered, among some classic gems. Check out the full list below. Here are the GAMES ON THE CHEAP for April 2017 Xbox Games With Gold Out from the 1st Darksiders – Xbox 360 Ryse: Son of Rome – Xbox One Out from the 16th Assassin's Creed Revelations – Xbox 360 The Walking Dead: Season 2 – Xbox One https://youtu.be/6sfRY8UFUEE PlayStation Plus Drawn to Death - PS4 Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime - PS4…

A KING’S TALE: FINAL FANTASY XV

No strings attached A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV is a free downloadable side-scroller beat 'em up. Think Castle Crashers crossed with Final Fantasy XV crossed with the original sprite based Final Fantasy games. A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV was originally a preorder bonus (yuck!), but now is being given away for free (yea!). Now this is nothing like most of the free-to-play offerings we get now days. While it's a short play at about one and a half hours, there are no microtransactions in sight, no ads, it's not a rip off of another game and it's not generic (although it does start off that way). https://youtu.be/tKJ_Ni4d5EE A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV. Throwbacks galore A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV breaths new life into the side-scrolling beat 'em up genre by adding in the fighting mechanics of Final Fantasy XV. This includes warp strikes, elemancy (magic), link strikes and a few little surprises. This makes combat fun and really sees the game stand on its own. As someone who played Final Fantasy XV right through, I feel that having the back story made the relationship in the story telling parts (parts that quite literally tell the story) have more impact, but it's really not necessary to have played Final Fantasy XV to enjoy A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV. Shorter than Kingsglaive The big shame here is…

GAMES ON THE CHEAP: MARCH 2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more For me, this is a pretty light month for GAMES ON THE CHEAP. While Civilization Beyond Earth in the the top tier of the Humble Civiliazation Bundle is good value, it's probably a game anyone who has been wanting to play it has already picked up on a sale somewhere. The game I'm most happy for GAMES ON THE CHEAP: MARCH 2017 is Tearaway Unfolded on PS4. This is a game I've been wanting to play with my kids. I'm also super curious to try out the PlayStation Plus game, Disc Jam. Any game that is being compared to Rocket League is worth a try. Here are the GAMES ON THE CHEAP for March 2017 Xbox Games With Gold Out from the 1st Borderlands 2 – Xbox 360 Layers of Fear– Xbox One Out from the 16th Heavy Weapon – Xbox 360 Evolve: Ultimate Edition – Xbox One https://youtu.be/ds5aMX0sNYU PlayStation Plus Disc Jam - PS4 Tearaway Unfolded - PS4 Under Night: In-Birth - PS3 Earth Defense Force 2025 - PS3 Lumo - PS Vita (crossbuy on PS4) Severed - PS Vita https://youtu.be/q8LarSbdp5Q Humble Bundle Humble Monthly – Total War: Warhammer (February. March unannounced) Humble Civilization Bundle $1 for Sid Meier's Civilization 3 Complete and Sid Meier's Civilization 4: The Complete Edition. Beat the average for all that plus Civilization 5, the Gods and Kings and Brave New World expansion packs…
