Lilo's Lair #58: Game Deals and 2017 Horror Games. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

It’s the end of the week! Got any gaming plans? If not, I have a few games you might be interested in.

Right, this moment Humble Bundle is selling Civilization III for free. FREE! Yes, get it quick though, because this sale only lasts for today. Also, make sure you redeem the Steamy key by October 21st at 10AM. I’m a big Civ fan, and through the years I’ve lost my copy of Civ III, so I already went ahead and picked this up. I’m curious if this sale means that there might be some more DLC (downloadable content) coming for Civilization VI soon. I’m going to bet yes since the holiday season is right on top of us.

Another great sale that you should jump on quick if interested is Mad Max at Gamers Gate. It is 79% off, or $4.20.

If those games aren’t calling to you, then check out the long list of games on sale at Gamers Gate right now. There are games up to 82% off. It’s a nice long list, so there are plenty to choose from.

Now that I’ve shared with you a few deals for us penny-pinchers it’s time to move on to the other subject of this post. Horror games! I’m going to list for you some of the most popular and best horror games of 2017. Do you like to get scared? Now is the perfect time for it in the States. Sit alone in the dark and play a horror game, then run off to a local Haunted House to scream yourself silly. Well, at least that’s what I do in Haunted Houses. I’m incapable of not screaming and have had the misfortune of actually grabbing hold of strangers for safety. Whoops.

Without further delay, here are five of the choicest 2017 horror games:

1. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Of course, I have to put Resident Evil on my list. This came out back in January of this year for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 and had the third-best sales debut for the series. The reviews are pretty great for this–9/10 on Steam, 86/100 on Metacritic (for PS4 and XONE versions), and 8/10 on GameSpot.

Resident Evil 7 takes place in a haunted southern farmhouse. The most prominent new thing about 7 is it’s in the first person. The game is regularly $60, but there is a free demo. You can find the free demo titled Resident Evil 7 Teaser Demo: Beginning Hour in the Microsoft and PlayStation stores, or here on Steam. Also, this game was on sale for PlayStation for only $36 (40%), but I have no idea how long that deal is lasting.


2. Outlast 2

Outlast 2 is a first-person survival horror that came out in April for Windows, PS4, and Xbox One. It is a sequel to the 2013 game Outlast. In this game, you play as an investigative journalist who is seeking out information in Colorado. He cannot fight, he can just run and hide. Be careful not to lose your glasses, because you can’t see too well without them.

Outlast 2 has good reviews with a 9/10 on Steam, 76% on Metacritic, and 8.3/10 on IGN. This game is regularly $30.  It’s currently sitting at $21 in the PlayStation store though. It looks like they are running a big sale on scary, ghost, or other possible Halloween-like games.


3. Evil Within 2

The Evil Within 2 just came out this month for Windows, PS4, and Xbox One. It is a third-person survival horror and is the sequel to the 2014 game The Evil Within. The reviews are pretty great with a 9/10 on Steam, 82/100 on Metacritic (for PC and XONE versions, and an 8/10 on IGN. In The Evil Within 2, you play as a detective whos house burned down with his daughter inside. He is haunted by creepy dead images of her and must descend into the world of Union to save her.

This game is regularly $60 and does not appear to be on sale right now.


4. Little Nightmares

Little Nightmares is a bit different from the others because it’s not a survival game. Instead, it is a platform, puzzle game. Though still in the horror realm. This game has excellent reviews with a 9/10 on Steam, 8.8/10 on IGN, and 78-83/100 on Metacritic (depending on the console or pc version). However, this game is on the short end. I came out back in April of this year for Windows, PS4, and Xbox One.

In this game you play as a hungry six-year-old girl who is stuck in The Maw–“a mysterious vessel catering to the whims of sick and powerful creatures.” This game is regularly $20 and does not appear to be on sale.


5. Observer_

Observer_ is another survival horror that came out in August of this year for Windows, PS4, and Xbox One. What’s fun about this is that it’s a “cyberpunk horror” who’s setting feels similar to Blade Runner (always a plus in my book). The reviews are good–a 9/10 on Steam, 78% on Metacritic, and 9/10 on GameSpot. The game takes place in a not so distant future where things haven’t gone so well for us. You play as a detective in the Observers unit. That means you hack people’s minds, particularly their memories and fears.

This game is regularly $30 but is currently showing as $21 in the PlayStation Store.

  1. Little Nightmares is creepy and I love the design of the game. Looks kinda hard to play but maybe more because I’m a scaredy-cat. Don’t mind the no discount- it’s a good buy in my opinion!

    These games are just great! It’s just sad to see how people have to pirate these games from torrent sites. I guess it just goes to show that people just REALLY want to play these games.

    I love games but I just can’t seem to find the courage to actually play horror games. I mean, I don’t mind watching them. I watch people on YouTube play them but even if my laptop can handle these games, I wouldnt be able to play them myself. I download them but leave it in a separate folder for when my friends want to borrow my laptop. But maaaan, I really wish I could play them myself!
