Playstation Summer Sale Week 2 Redeems Itself

Let’s be honest here. Summer Sale week 1 was a disappointment. It seemed like they couldn’t really figure out what to put on sale so they chose a slew of random games from the bottom of the barrel and slapped a shiny discount tag on them.

Fear not however, as Sony must’ve realised their ways. Week 2 is much better and offers much more diversity in the selection.

Here are some of my favourite deals.

Summer sale week 2
Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath HD – A spin-off so good it stomps on the franchise from which it spawns.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity – Despite being an embarrassment on launch, Unity is now a competent game and for the size and scope of such a game, the price is a pretty nice bargain.

Lords Of The Fallen – Are you anxious to play Dark Souls III? Do you absolutely need a budget substitute in the mean time? Here is an infinitely less impressive yet somehow still enjoyable game that mimics the best and worst of Dark Souls.

Okami HD – One of the most gorgeous and awe-inspiring games of all time is in HD and asks the small price of $4.20. You absolutely cannot say no.

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon – Possibly the best standalone DLC ever made. The tutorial alone is worth the asking price.

King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters – While technically not a video game, it is an incredible documentary about video games so I’ve added it as an extra.
As usual, head on over to Sony’s official blog post to see all of the glorious deals for your sweet self.


Playstation Summer Sale Week 1 Begins

Casually perusing the Playstation store as I do every so often, I was shocked to see the words ‘Summer Sale’ appear. Did we not already have one a few weeks back? Probably not. Am I delusional? Probably.

Regardless, we’ve been graced by the Playstation Gods once again, as the Summer Sale is either just starting or returns for the second time this year!

Below are some of the greatest deals of the first week.

Summer sale Week 1


Far Cry 4 – If you have the desire to save money and hunt all sorts of animals  in the Himalaya’s, look no further. Step into the shoes of Ajay Ghale and prepare to have your eyes repeatedly pecked out by birds. Yep, birds.

Apotheon – If you’ve ever had a desire to play a game that looks like ancient pottery art, you’re in the right place. Apotheon is a Metroidvania with a gorgeous art-style and some innovative combat. You can do worse.

Trine 2: Complete Story – If Lost Vikings and some fairy tales of old had a baby, it would be Trine 2, a gorgeous puzzle platformer from Frozenbyte definitely worth checking out.

Slender: The Arrival – Remember PewDiePie exaggerating the scare-factor of Slender? Remember him screaming incessantly into the microphone until you closed the tab and sought out psychiatric help?  You can somewhat recreate that horrible memory by playing Slender. Good luck.

More deals await your deliciously full wallet on the official Sony blog.
