Games on the Cheap: August 2017

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!
