It is that time of the week again, where GamersGate, the premium digital distribution portal, try to tempt you with special offers, in an effort to separate you from your hard earned cash. Evil!
After the success of last weeks tiered loyalty discount, the guys at GamersGate have done it again. This time around, members can pick up Men of War Gold Edition with a discount of up to 80%, depending on the level of their member status. Good times!
So, this weekends special offers are as follows, being valid until April 25th -
Mount & Blade – Buy Mount & BladeÂ and get Mount & Band WarbandÂ for only â‚¬5
Painkiller Universe – 40% off
Thief Bundle (The Dark Project & Deadly Shadows) – 40% off
Crusaders: Thy Kingdom Come – 50% off
Disciples II: Gold Edition – 40% off
Wings of Prey – 20% off
Medieval II: Total War Gold Edition – 50% off
Beat Hazard – 25% off
Dawn of Discovery Gold Edition – 25% off
Zombie Driver – 50% off
The crazy top down Zombie Driver, last weeks recommendation, is still there at a great price. But, for this weeks recommendation, I am torn. Two great games are leaping out at me and screaming “pick me!”
Mount & Blade Â£29.95 (including Mount & Blade: Warband)
Well, I cannot say that I have played the original Mount & Blade. But, as Warband is currently Â£24.99 alone, I will look at this bundle as getting the original game for just Â£5, rather than the other way around. Warband offers a great medieval experience to the player, with a deep and long lasting campaign, and a crazy 64 player online horse back combat mode. This package will keep you going way beyond the weekend.
Disciples II: Gold Edition Â£8.97
This fantasy turn-based strategy affair follows a similar formula to the famed Heroes of Might & Magic series. This game is a true blast from the past and stands here simply because it was one of my favorite games of the time (I even still have the game on my shelf). This gold edition contains Dark Prophecy, Gallean’s Return and Rise of the Elves and will entertain for many, many hours.
