Games on the Cheap: April 2018

Games on the Cheap: April 2018

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more

While there are a bunch of good games on offer as part of different gaming services, April is overall a pretty slow month.

The pick of the lot has to be The Witness as part of Xbox Games with Gold. A very unique, beautiful and difficult game that stumped me on plenty of occasions.

I enjoyed both Mad Max and TrackMania Turbo, which make up part of the PlayStation Plus offerings, but with both cases my interest fell off after a while.

Over on PC, SUPERHOT is part of the current top tier over at the Humble Indie Bundle 19. An amazing game that we chatted quite a bit about on our latest podcast.

Oh, and if you are keen to try Sea of Thieves don’t forget that you can get a 14 day Xbox Game Pass trial which includes it (if you do this, don’t overlook Sky Force Anniversary. I can’t get enough of it!).
