The holidays are in full effect, so let’s honor a dying man’s last wish with To The Moon, buy a bunch of cheap foreign goods from Tropico 4, spend time with our Grove Street family in GTA: San Andreas, get really drunk and punchy in Pixel Piracy, and magically teleport from rooftop to rooftop, delivering… “presents” in Dishonored.
With the Steam winter sale right around the corner, let’s take a look back at the back half of 2014 and I’ll pick the 5 best $5 games I played during that period!
Thanksgiving 2014 is upon us! Let’s show everyone our l33t moves in OlliOlli, head home for the holidays with Gone Home, reclaim the homelands with Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, escape in-laws… err.. zombies in Teleglitch, and stuff ourselves with bullets in Tower of Guns.
It’s Halloween, so let’s dress up! We’ll pretend to be robotic in Steamworld Dig, a fighter ace in Luftrausers, put underpants on our head with Tiny and Big, wear sheep’s clothing for The Wolf Among Us, and cover all the superhero bases with Lego Marvel Superheroes.
Things get magically weird in September with our lineup of Ys Origin, State of Decay, Shadowrun Returns, Dragon’s Crown, and Weird Worlds.
It’s the end of the world as we know it, so let’s explore nuclear winter Russia with Metro 2033, adapt to a post global warming Earth in Anno 2070, deal with soul-crushing debt in Recettear, outmaneuver the darkness in One Way Heroics, and then escape from the mad prison island of the cat overlords in Battleblock Theater.
This month is equal parts wacky, gory, and beautiful with RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, Sniper Elite V2, Papers, Please, Goat Simulator, Dead Rising 2, and Dust: An Elysian Tail.
While the Steam sale rages, our work continues with Hitman: Absolution, Batman: Arkham Origins, Skulls of the Shogun, Kingdom Rush, and Bastion.
And lo, our high lord his Gabe-ness has bestowed upon us mere mortals another sale of epic proportions. Let us reflect on the first half of 2014 and name our top five picks for the Summer Sale!
