Games on the Cheap: December 2017

Games on the Cheap: December 2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more

This month it’s all about the sweet Humble Yogscast Jingle Jam 2017 bundle. Not only when…

…you buy a $35 bundle, we’ll give ALL of the money to charity…. you’ll get new games unlocked through December 25th!

There are some awesome games in the mix, with an extra game being added every day.

Also on PC and at Humble Bundle, is Quantum Break as part of this month’s Humble Monthly. Jono really enjoyed his playthough of this game that experimented with crossing TV with a video game.

For me, there is nothing of interest over on the PlayStation front. Xbox have a few better offerings, particularly the first 360 game, Child of Eden.

Oh, and if somehow you haven’t picked up the original, and still incredibly fun, Plants vs. Zombies, EA are giving it away as part of EA On the House.
