I have computer games, PlayStation games, and Xbox games on sale for you this week.
Let me start with GOG (computer games). They have a trio of games all about war. Oriental Empires, Atlantic Fleet, and Cold Waters are three games all military strategy games. Oriental Empires is currently 40% off and costs $18. It’s a historical game all about growing a small Chinese tribe into a vast empire. It has a 7/10 rating on Steam. Atlantic Fleet is 50% off and currently costs a mere $5. This is a turned based naval game in which you can either play as the World War II allies or the German navy. This game has a 9/10 rating on Steam. The last game, Cold Waters is 20% off and currently costs $32. It is a submarine simulation game with a 9/10 rating on Steam.

On to the next site! GoGo Bundle is running a month-long indie bundle. This costs you a whopping $1.50, which is 97% in savings. Check out the bundle here. A highlight of the bundle is the Postal series, which includes Postal, Postal 2, Postal 2: Paradise Lost, and Postal Redux. These games have exceptionally high reviews on Steam. It is a dark comedy, first-person shooter. Looks fun! Don’t forget to use the code “winter2017” and get an extra 15% off until January 6th.
Now, on Steam the game Northgard is on sale for $15 (that’s 25% off). This is an Early Access real-time strategy game based on Norse mythology. You get to control a group of Vikings as try to gain control of a continent. It apparently plays something like a Civilization game. That certainly has piqued my interest. The ratings are very positive and the official release date is just around the corner (Feb. 22nd), making this pretty much a finished product already. This may just have to be my new game. The deal ends January 8th.

This week Fanatical (previously known as Bundle Stars) is having a really big sale on a lot of games. It’s called the Bandai Namco sale. There are a lot of great games on sale for this, including a ton of Dragon Ball games, Tekken 7 (for 55% off), Little Nightmares (52% off), and even some discounted pre-order games. Check out the deal’s homepage here.
Okay, let’s move on to console game deals!
In the PlayStation Store, it is “Holiday Sale Week 4”. This ends the 9th of January at 8AM PST. Here is the sale homepage. There are 25 pages of games on sale, so quite a lot to peruse. From Sniper Elite 4 Deluxe Editions (50% off) to Yooka-Laylee (also 50% off). I really feel like there is something for everyone in this week’s sale. First person shooters, anime based games (Attack On Titan), new games (Resident Evil 7), old games (Chrono Trigger), simulation games (Farming Simulator), funny indie games (Goat Simulator), puzzle games (Rime), and much much more. Definitely worth a look.

As an added bonus, Green Man Gaming is selling PlayStation store credit at 10%. $50 PSN credits cost you only $45. I am not sure how long that deal is lasting so if you are going to be making some PlayStation store purchases soon, then you want to hop on that ASAP.
Another really sweet deal for PlayStation is that you can pick up NieR: Automata for $30 at Game Stop–regular price is $50. This is an exceptional game with amazing reviews and managed to snag a few awards this year.
