Tomorrow’s St Patty’s Day! How are you celebrating? Think I’m going to do absolutely nothing. Haha. I’ll wear a little green at least. Wouldn’t want to get harassed for not doing that!
Before I get into the sale for this weekend, let me remind you we are entering the final week of our competition for a $150 Amazon eGiftcard. That means one more week to increase your chances of winning! Check out all the details on our competition homepage here.
Let me hit the console deals first. PlayStation is running two big sales. The first is the Great Indoors Sale, and it ends the 27th of March. There are a lot of games in this sale. All types of genres, along with new and not so new games. It’s hard to share a few titles to give a good example of the overall sale. That means I recommend checking the sale out yourself if you’re looking for a new PlayStation game. With that said, some highlights are Rocket League for 30% off, Fallout 4 for 25% off, The Complete Edition of Little Nightmares is 50% off, and NBA 2k18 is 40% off. They have games up to 60% off with PlayStation Plus, and 50% off if you don’t have gold.

The second sale PlayStation is running is the Capcom sale. That means Capcom games for sale, as you probably guessed. There are about 155 titles on the sale page. You can find some real classics on the list. I’m talking really old Megaman titles and Marvel vs. Capcoms. They also have some newer titles like Resident Evil 7 (for 15% off). Unfortunately, the new Monster Hunter isn’t on the list! However, if your a big fan of Capcom, this sale might be worth browsing! There are games up to 90% off for PlayStation Plus (and only 60% for non-plus members).
Xbox has some sales too, and this weekend they are running an Indie Puzzle game sale, along with some other games to keep things interesting. Here is the full list of games on sale. Some highlights include RiME for 40% off, Plague Inc: Evolved for 50% off, and The Sexy Brutale for 50% off. They have games up to 75% off this weekend, and though there are a few low-ball deals, most seem to hover around 50%.

There are some good phone game deals running right now too! Specifically, you can get Balder’s Gate: Enhanced Edition 1 and 2 for $2.50. They are originally $10! This is the lowest I’ve ever seen these games on mobile. It’s for Apple and Android phones.
Now on to the meat, computer games. Can always find a lot of deals with computer games. First…FREE GAMES! YAY! Twitch Prime has a new batch of free games ready for the picking. There are five free games available now until March 31st. You do indeed need to be a Twitch Prime member. Which means you need Amazon Prime. Once you have that, you link your Twitch account, and you can be rolling in free games. Here are the details of this deal. You will need to have the Twitch app to download the games. The free games are:
· Shadow Tactics
· Tales from Candlekeep: Tomb of Annihilation
· Mr. Shifty
I’m particularly excited about Superhot, a very interesting first-person shooter.
Now, there is an actual St Patrick’s Day themed sale going on this weekend over at GOG. If you are a gambler, you can pay $3 and get a mystery game. Pretty exciting, and rather fitting considering luck is with the Irish! However, if you aren’t feeling that daring they have a bunch of games on sale, you can buy without any mystery involved. Here is the sale homepage. Some highlights are Yooka-Laylee is 66% off, Banner Saga 2 is 20%, and ABZU for 50% off.

If you’ve been reading my Friday blogs, you’ll notice that Square Enix has had sales each week. Last week it was on consoles, the week before that it was on Steam. Well, this week it’s on Humble! Haha. Here is the sale homepage. Highlights include NieR: Automata is 50% off, Rise of the Tomb Raider is 67% off, and Dues Ex: Mankind Divided Season Pass for 70% off.
Finally, Steam’s deals. The first is 60% off the game Obduction. This is an adventure puzzle game that came out on PC August 2016. Steam has two other franchise sales this weekend: Call of Duty and RPG Maker. With the Call of Duty franchise sale, there are deals from 20% off to 81% off. The big whopper at 81% off is the entire Call of Duty franchise. That’s 40 items for $198.73.

The RPG Maker franchise sale is a free weekend and includes Visual Novel Maker. That means you can use these two programs for free this weekend. If you decide you want to keep the software, then you can get them on sale. RPG Maker MV is 75%, as well as some extras you can purchase for it (such as the Cover Art Characters Pack and Essentials Set). The Visual Novel Maker is 25% off. These programs are for making games. RPG Maker MV has some good reviews on Steam and elsewhere. Visual Novel Maker has less high reviews. The complaints are that it’s hard for beginners and buggy. Which makes this free weekend great because you can decide for yourself if it works for you.
Have a great St. Patrick’s Day weekend everyone! I hope you play some good games!
