Weekly Game Deals: March 18th, 2015

Icelandic money

As once described in an XKCD comic, humanity has no innate sense of what makes something majestic or grandiose. It just has one sense of relativity, a single scale, from which it derives value highly variably. Gaming challenges this scale constantly, endlessly shifting the value of a game due to just how many sales are available and omnipresent.

Bundle Stars

Starting us off this week is Bundle Stars, who’ve added four bundles to their line-up as compared to last week, bringing the topic up to 14 available bundles. The new bundles, all single-game centric with DLC included, are the Victoria bundle for $4.99, the Hearts of Iron III bundle for $4.99, the F1 Race Stars bundle for $4.99, and the Ship Simulator Extremes bundle for $3.49.

For those interested in retro-inspired gaming, they’re also hosting a 75% off sale on the recent remake of Gauntlet through their store page.

Indie Gala

For a few hours more, Indie Gala is still hosting their Neon Dragon bundle from the past two weeks, for $6.19, as well as the new Hump Day bundle for at least $3.99 for the full set. Running a little bit longer is the Big Time bundle from last week for a few days, at $4.89.

They’re also offering their usual Monday bundle ($3.49) and Friday bundle ($3.99) bundles, which include a wide mix of indie titles each.


GOG’s staff pick this week is a look into classic first-person-shooters, labeled FPS Finest, which includes Unreal Tournament 2004 for $2.99 and Duke Nukem 3D for $1.79.

They also have promos for 53% off the Legend of Grimrock titles, 60% off F.E.A.R. 2, and 50% off The Fall.


Steam’s deals this week are particularly strong, putting Fable Anniversary on sale for $11.89, the Dead Rising franchise pack for $37.04, and a big Cyberpunk sale.

In the Cyberpunk Sale, a few of the highlights include Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut for $3.99, System Shock 2 for $2.49, Mirror’s Edge for $4.99, Transistor for $6.79, and a number of other excellent games trenched in the cyberpunk setting. Although, admittedly, they missed an opportunity by excluding the Shadowrun PC games.

Indie Game Stand

Closing the PC side up this week is Indie Game Stand, with Earthtongue in the pay-what-you-want category.

Xbox Store

Although Microsoft has no major changes from last week’s deal round-up, they’ve added Grand Theft Auto V to their Deals With Gold special this week, for as little as $25.19 on the Xbox 360.

Nintendo Network

In addition to the Mario vs Donkey Kong Tipping Stars cross-buy deal as explained in the last few weeks, this week is also rocking a WayForward 25 Anniversary sale, which includes Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse for $15.99, and $1.49 each for the Mighty Switch Force games. A full list of all games on sale, as always, can be found on their Offers page.

PlayStation Network

Spring Fever Week 3 is live, promoting Jamestown+ on discount for PSPlus members, as well as a wide range of discounts on the Assassin’s Creed series, including the previously Vita-exclusive Assassin’s Creed III Liberation for $13.50. As always, a full list of deals can be found on their Deals page.

That’s it for this week. As always, any comments, concerns, questions, or suggestions are endlessly welcome in the comments below.
