Games on the Cheap: October 2017

Games on the Cheap: October 2017

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more

I need to start with the huge game amongst many solid offerings this month, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. This is a spectacular, albeit weird, action game that was easily one of the best games of 2015. The game allows for what you see in the image above… so it’s obviously a must play.

Games on the Cheap this month has a surprising PC offering from EA on the House in the form of SteamWorld Dig, the highly acclaimed platform mining adventure game. EA on the House is also giving away the Star Wars Battlefront season pass, although hopefully there are more people playing the DLC on PC than on Xbox One!

Over on the Xbox side of things, Xbox One owners can get Gone Home. If you know nothing about this game, keep it that way and enjoy! I’d also recommend playing it with someone close to you so you can speculate through the short story.
