It’s that time of year again, so prepare your wallets and be sure to spend your money wisely; The sale runs until June 22nd!

Here are some of the top games to look out for (newest on top):

Civilization V: Complete Edition 75% off [$12.49 until 10 am 6/16]


     I have spent over 180 hours in this turn-based empire builder against friends and computers alike. No two games are the same and the scenarios add an amazing amount of variety. While not as complicated as Crusader Kings or as action packed as Total War, Civilization V is still one of the best strategy games out there.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter 66% off [$6.79 until 10 am 6/16]

ss_9b86bfc8b10ed17804f033a4a8de209fe90a1280     First-person story that looks like a more engaging Dear Esther with some scary stuff to boot, give it a looksie.

TombRaider 2015-03-21 17-14-56-69

     My first exposure to the Tomb Raider games, it’s actually quite well done with exotic graphics and tons of action. Let’s be honest here though, we aren’t here for the story but we might as well stay for the fluid gameplay.
