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, Corpse Party: Blood Drive, will be hitting Western shores later this month (October 13th) either.
On the Steam side of things, the classic Strategy RPG Valkyria Chronicles is 66% off and can be had at an excellent price point of $6.79. Originally for the PS3, Valkyria Chronicles is set in a fictionalized version of Europe in a World War 2-like era. Players must command a small unit of troops and tanks against an oppressive dictator bent on conquering the entire world. The mixing of mythology, light science fiction, and heavy strategy makes for a great RPG for fans of the genre, especially at such a low price.
Steam is also having a series-wide sale on Tomb Raider games, most of which boast discounts of 80% off their original price. With the newest game in the series just around the corner, this would be a great chance to take a trip down memory lane and re-experience what made Tomb Raider such a great series in the first place.
That is all for this week, but make sure to join us next Thursday for more Gaming on a Budget!
