Games for the Masses–Weekend Deals 11//01//2013

Welcome back to Games for the Masses, where you pay less to play more!  This is an interesting week, Comrades–lots of good stuff on sale.  Let’s start off by heading back to your favorite town: Torchlight!  This week you’ll get the second game in the franchise and while Torchlight 2 doesn’t break any new ground, the addition of multiplayer makes this a must-play for fans of loot hunting and dungeon delving.

Other big deals of the week?

  • Okay, I admit that the Alien Anthology isn’t a game, but Alien is required cultural propaganda, and if you’ve got a Blu-ray player you might want to look into picking this up.
  • While on the subject of creepy thing in the dark, Slender: The Arrival is out on Steam for your gaming horror.  It’s after Halloween, but if you’re looking for one more good scare, you can get it for 8 bucks.
  • The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time trilogy was one of the best franchises on the Playstation 2.  If you’re a fan of great writing, great action, and one of the best romances in gaming history, head over to GoG!
  • Going back to horror, Condemned: Criminal Origins is an oft-forgotten gem.  Featuring what is probably one of the best first-person combat engines ever, Condemned will leave you shivering for less than 4 dollars.
  • IndieRoyale is holding a Halloween-themed bundle. The star of the show is Organ Trail, but I’m curious to give Overcast and Rise of the Ravager a try

Those are the best deals of the week that we could find.  If you found one that we missed, leave a comment below. Otherwise? Game on, Comrades!
