Gaming on a Budget #1 – June 29th 2012

Posted on June 29, 2012 AT 01:17pm

Welcome to the weekly series of Gaming on a Budget. While video game prices are on the rise, there are plenty of great games, great deals, and great steals for those who don’t mind playing games after they have been out for a while. My objective in this article is not necessarily to review games, but introduce you to lesser known games, websites, and deals that may be hard to find. I help you get through the week with upcoming weekend sales, free play weekends, and a recap of games you should always have ready to play.

FREE TO PLAY- Tribes Ascend - This game is classified as ‘free to play…but not pay to win’. What this means is that although you can spend money to get gold / level up quicker / get better weapons, everything can be unlocked like most games through playing the game, winning matches, and eliminating enemies. You can grab this game on Steam or Hire Z Studios

FRANCHISE DEALWarhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – The original RTS game was released in 2004 and sequel was released in 2009. This game is based off of the table top game from Games Workshop, and is having a crazy deal for you to pick up the entire series. Every game is 75% on Steam . This game is a great alternative to games like Starcraft and Warcraft, and at 75% off, there’s no reason not to pick it up and give it a try!

INDIE SPOTLIGHTPenny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 – This old school RPG from Penny Arcade gives a great demo and tells us that you can “relive your childhood”, “battle mythical creatures”, and “walk!” Obviously the guys over at Zeboyd Games know how to not take themselves seriously with this 10 hour questing game. Along with the price tag of only $4.99, they will be releasing more free content via DLC in the coming future. Keyword is FREE! Check it out on Steam

KEN’S SPOTLIGHTDungeon Defenders – This game takes what I loved about Tower Defense, and mixes in team work, multiple abilities, and hero style stances. I’d be lying if I hadn’t said I’d have played this game for hundreds of hours, and it’s still fun. The game starts off at $14.99 and offers a lot to the customer, and each DLC ranges from $1.99 – $3.99. Not every DLC needs to be purchased as they may just be costume sets, but there are plenty of other DLC for the gamer including new maps, new characters, and new game styles. The game will keep you playing for hours on end, well worth the $14.99 and all the DLC. You can grab it on Steam and you can find all the news about the game on the website of the developer Trendy Entertainment
