Games on the Cheap: January 2017

Games on the Cheap: January  2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more

My top pick of games on the cheap for January 2017 would have to be XCOM 2 on PC as part of the Humble Monthly bundle. You can pick this up for $12USD and unsubscribe at any time.

This would be closely followed by Mass Effect 2 on PC as EA’s On the House freebie.

My other picks of games on the cheap for the month are The Cave and Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition for Xbox, Titan Souls for PlayStation and the $1 level of the Assassin’s Creed Humble Bundle (just to have a quick go of the Chronicles games) for PC.
