First PSN Flash Sale Of 2016 Wants All Of Your Money

It seems routine at this point for Sony to suddenly drop another flash sale, yet they somehow keep making these sales both surprising and tempting. This week’s theme is indies, and this time, they seem committed to actually following the theme.

Here are a few of my personal favourites for your consideration.

FlowerA vibrant ‘art game’ that doubles as a relaxation exercise. From the creators of Journey, it’s priced at a little over a dollar and your purchase unlocks the game on PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. Pretty nice bargain.

Bastion An incredibly beautiful action game where your every move is narrated in real time. A lovely western soundtrack, unique enemies and locales, and great voice acting make this game a definite must-play for anyone who is a fan of swinging big hammers.

LimboEveryone knows what Limbo is, but many of you probably haven’t taken the plunge. This game deserves all of the praise it receives. A moody, tense, and bone-chilling experience that every fan of platformers should try. Great puzzles help make this game all the better too.

OutlastWhile Outlast fails to remain horrifying throughout its entire runtime, this game starts off with a huge bang. I still get creeped out thinking about some of the events that take place, and any fan of horror games would feel right at home with this one.

Sound ShapesOne of my favourite recent platformers. It manages to blend music and platforming in a unique and interesting way that simply doesn’t get stale. An excellent soundtrack and wonderfully simplistic art make this one worth trying.

The Unfinished SwanOne of the coolest indie games to ever grace the PlayStation 3 and 4, The Unfinished Swan is both an intriguing puzzler. It consistently changes up the mechanics while offering a concise and charming tale about a boy chasing a swan, all told in the style of a children’s storybook.

TransistorOne of my all time favourite games and certainly an underrated masterpiece, Transistor should be played by absolutely everyone.

PlayStation goes Retro In New Flash Sale… Mostly

Sony has just surprised the masses with another flash sale. The theme this week? Retro. From PS1 classics to modern PS4 titles, Sony has not only discounted many great games, but they’ve forgotten the definition of retro entirely…

Fear not Sony, there is always next week to correct yourself. I’ll forgive you, but I’ll never forget.

Here are some of my favourite picks from this week’s sale.

20693305649_24db9d97d6_z

Trials Fusion – For the masochists that adore unending challenge and horrific theme songs. This game is an absolute doozy.

Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger – At last, a return to the basics in one of the best downloadable shooters on the market. Unique scenarios with ever-changing battlefields will have you itching for just one more round to beat out your best score.

From Dust – A beautiful and simple game with you guiding a tribe of men and women to their safety while literally molding the earth around them. A unique and interesting concept that has been all too forgotten as of late.

OlliOlli 2: Welcome To Olliwood – For the skate fans that are sick to death of Tony Hawk’s ‘inventive’ new ways to play awful games. OlliOlli 2 is as addictive as it is excellent.

Child Of Light – A beautiful, hand painted RPG where every piece of dialogue is a part of a poem. Surprisingly depthy battle system, wonderfully lush locales to explore, and a light-hearted yet endearing story to behold. Child Of Light is one of the best Ubisoft titles in years.

If your wallet is feeling a bit stuffed, head on over to the official Sony blog post to find out the other great deals that are in available.

Playstation Flash Sale: Sci-Fi Madness

As an avid discount gamer, I get anxious for all of the new flash sales Sony is dropping on a pretty regular basis. They cover a wide variety of genres and the sales are generally pretty great. That’s why, from now on I will be covering each and every flash sale until the end of our solar system, when the sun inevitably explodes and swallows us whole.

On that gloomy note, don’t miss out on the great deals while you still have a planet to inhabit! Here is a rundown of some of the best choices.

Flash sale
Alien: Isolation + Season Pass Bundle – For those of you who like discounts and disembowelment.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved – Calling all Masochists. The wait for Dark Souls III will be  a long one, so if you are missing being mad and smashing your controller into tiny pieces, this is your new best friend.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection – If you need to waste five hundred hours for some strange reason, Borderlands always has you covered.

Final Horizon – Remember disappointing your parents with low grades that can be in part blamed on Kongregate’s excessive tower defence library? Relive the agony with this gem.

Gradius Collection – Do you think the PSP is the best handheld ever made? Do you want to prove to your friends that the PSP is indeed the best handheld ever made? Do you want to make the PSP a relevant handheld in 2015? Gradius is for you. Nothing screams ‘Best handheld’ like playing ported games from well over a decade ago.
