GOG.com – King’s Bounty franchise and Space Rangers HD
You don’t have to be too cool for school when you go old school.
King’s Bounty, predecessor of the Heroes of Might and Magic franchise, got new life when Russian publisher 1C published King’s Bounty: The Legend ($2*) 10 years ago. The graphics may be dated, but the tactical combat is still amazing. You can even play as the ‘bad’ guys in the latest entry King’s Bounty: Dark Side ($5*). If Sci-Fi is more your thing, Space Rangers HD ($10*) is a great top-down space simulator.
Steam – Bohemia Interactive Publisher sale, Assassin’s Creed franchise and Tekken 7 weekend sale.
Try the original games that spawned the Battle Royale genre with DayZ or catch up with the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
Before there was PUBG or Fortnite, there were survival games. DayZ ($36), which was incidentally a mod of ARMA III ($19), was one of the key players in this genre before it eventually evolved into the Battle Royale genre we know today. Get a chance to try out the games that spawned the whole Battle Royale genre or catch up on the Assassin’s Creed franchise before Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey comes out October 5.
Lazada – Nintendo Super Famicom Mini
Have a nostalgia trip with the Super Famicom Mini.
Get yourself a bit of gaming history with the Super Famicom Mini at only $92.90! With a massive discount of 45% from the usual price of $169, it is a great time to grab this nostalgia in a box. It also comes with 21 built-in games so you don’t have to worry about cartridges like the old days.
Shopee – Acer KG251Q F 24.5-Inch Full HD Gaming Monitor
Need a new monitor for your gaming rig?
