1. Batman Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition- It’s about time that Batman welcomed itself into my top 5 for a change, and what a bloody good bargain it is. For 1/4 of the original price, Mr Wayne allows you to buy is open world beat ’em up story teller for just £4.99. The guy really is a generous sod.
2. Ace of Spades- Minecraft, but an FPS online multiplayer game. Do I have to say more? £1.74 will buy you an online experience that isn’t as brutal as Call of Duty, but it’s extremely close in enjoyment. With destructible pixel environments and a variety of classes to choose from, this is a nice little game to add to your Steam library.
3. GTA IV- A GTA game is always worth the investment, and when one’s on sale, that’s an opportunity you can’t really miss. £4.99 is all you need to spend to have access to the huge Liberty City where you play as Niko, and Eastern European Immigrant looking to make a new life in America. Of course in typical GTA fashion, he does so with varying degrees of violence, nudity and swearing. What’s not to like?
4. Dead Island Riptide- The sequel to the hate it-love it zombie slasher Dead Island is on sale for £17.49. Being a guy who enjoyed playing through the original Dead Island, this is a pretty attractive deal to see. With a huge focus on melee combat, the game brings the brutality of zombie slaying to a beautiful tropical island where you and a bunch of survivors look to escape the hordes. This game has had a mixed reception, but it’s still a relatively new game, so the fact that it’s 50% may be the main motivator to make a purchase. It never hurts to future-proof your Steam library.
5. War of the Roses Kingmaker (Flash Sale at time of publication)- A 3rd person medieval multiplayer game, War of the Roses takes you as far away from the generic multiplayer experience and puts you right into a completely new and foreign play style. No drop-shots, no-scopes, camping or 360 killcams to be seen in this game, all you get is sword fights galore. I hugely recommend this game for anyone looking for a new gaming experience.
