As we approach the holiday season, it is more than likely then many among our gaming family here in the APGNation are feeling a bit light in the wallet as of late. But even for those of us with a tight budget, that shouldn’t mean that we can’t pick up a few games on the cheap to guide us through the end of the year.
First up we have Persona 4 Golden. The updated Vita port of the excellent 2008 urban fantasy RPG of the same name, Persona 4 Golden weaves a story of murder, self-discovery, and obscure religious and mythological references that combine to make it perhaps one of the best RPGs of all time. While the original version of the game is available for [...]

This is kind of expensive week. I hope everyone will forgive this transgression, but there’s some really good games on sale. One of them we reviewed personally, and while it’s close to $40.00, it’s still a hell of a discount. Here we go!
Good Night. Good Luck. Dying light is one of those games that tells you the developers realised their previous mistakes. The genesis of the game was the Dead Island series. While not overly successful, it did teach developers Techland what to do and what not to. They carried that knowledge into Dying Light, expanding on problems in the previous games; fixing them and refining them. While Dying Light featured a similar [...]
Nicole here, filling in for this column’s usual host due to computer-related troubles, bringing you the week’s best deals this edition of Gaming on a Budget.
Playstation 3 and Vita owners can pick up both the gruesome horror visual novel game Corpse Party and is its sequel Corpse Party: Book of Shadows for $10.00 each, fifty percent less than their normal asking price. Both titles are known for being a bloody, creepy, and not at all for the faint of heart. But if you’re looking for a little bit of horror or a lot, as the case maybe, you could do far worse than to give either of these games a chance. It doesn’t hurt the third game in the series, [...]
It’s been somewhat slim pickings this week’s Gaming on a Budget: 9/24/2015 Edition; however, much to my delight, an absolute classic has finally been released on GOG.com. It’s a sci-fi marvel and until now, its status has been up in the air. Someone finally has taken control of the intellectual rights and it has been unearthed for new generations to enjoy. Can you guess what title I’m waffling on about?System Shock has always flown a little bit under the radar. While gamers today still reminisce about the colossally successful sequel, System Shock 2, not much love is given to the game that started it all. This is a shame, as many concepts from System Shock [...]
Some fantastic games available this week. Frictional Studios were giving away Amnesia: The Dark Descent for free on Steam until Wednesday. Luckily, their other titles were also on sale. We included some in this week’s Gaming on a Budget, along with a fantastic sci-fi title that’s been making waves.
Set in a world, not unlike our own, Technobabylon explores a reality where the Internet has evolved. A.I. has gone berserk, and genetic engineering is simply a run of the mill occurrence. Charles Regis and his partner are called in by CEL to investigate an odd murder case. The man being of some status appears to have been killed by someone close to him. Something’s [...]
Update: Sadly the sales for this article have ended; however, the PSN price of the first Blood Omen is still the same.
Well, this week was the massive Humble Store sale. With discounts across the board from Square Enix, Deep Silver, Ubisoft, and Focus, there’s a lot for a poverty-stricken gamer to sink their teeth into. I present to you just a few of my all time favourite titles in the bunch. Most of them, no surprise, are stealth games.
The granddaddy of them all, and still one of the most atmospheric first-person titles ever. Thief has a hell of a legacy. It all started with The Dark Project. Thief: The Dark Project put players into the shoes of a master [...]
This week on Gaming on a Budget, it’s an all PC edition as there are some great sales going about, both on the Humble Store and all over the net. Among the numerous deals out there are two of my personal favorite shooters of all time, and a little bit of horror here and there. We hope you enjoy!
The Humble Store is currently having a sale on the entire Red Faction series though the first two are the only ones worth your time. Red Faction tells the story of Earth; minerals depleted to dangerous levels and humanity looking out into the solar system for escape. The colonization of Mars has begun but a mysterious plague is sweeping among the workers of the red planet [...]
This week on Gaming on a Budget: 8/27/2015 Edition we’re RPG crazy. This one is likely our most expensive edition yet, but it truly is worth it. We hope you enjoy this week’s picks.
Pillars of Eternity is an amazingly in depth CRPG that harkens back to the old days of Neverwinter Nights, Planescape and Baldur’s Gate. This throwback RPG showed that those unique experiences still exist in the modern gaming landscape. Pillars features a fantastic combat system, an unorthodox status system, and some interesting characters. Pillars of Eternity, more importantly, is a great roleplaying experience. The game focuses on the exploits of the Watcher—a being who can [...]
