As is tradition here at Pixels and Grids, today’s post will be about the best deals you can get in gaming just in time for the weekend. And today, we’re going to start off with a game that, for the next week, will be the best price there is – free.
This week Crysis Wars is playable completely free for anyone who registers in the MyCrysis community forums. The full details can be found here, but it looks pretty straight forward. The site provides links to various sites where you can download the game, the 1.4 patch, and then all you have to do is go here and get your free CD key. It’ll only last you until Friday the 17th, but what better way to try out something new? Go download it and start shooting dudes.
In other news, Gamestop is running their annual Game Days sale and there’s a few good titles on there this weekend. PS3-exclusive RPG golden child Valkyria Chronicles for $29.99? Fallout 3 and Call of Duty: World at War each going for $49.99? Fable 2 used for $39.99? Sign me up! Some of these deals are only available in the stores, so check out the ad and call your local ‘Stop and see if they have anything you’re looking for.
Last, but certainly not least, I’d like to share an excellent freeware game with you fine folks: Within a Deep Forest by Nifflas’ Games. It’s a 2D platformer in which you play as a little round ball with a big mission ahead of him. It’s quite charming, satisfyingly difficult, and costs zero dollars. I haven’t played the other games on their site yet, but given the quality of Within A Deep Forest, I’d be willing to bet the others might be good too!
That about wraps it up. Hopefully I’ve enlightened someone out there in internet land to an opportunity for some frugal gaming this weekend. Because I am a man with a sense of decency and integrity, I will absolutely not be saying ‘Outtie 5k’.
