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 the PS3, Golden is a better version of the game and adds new costumes, a whole new sub-plot, and a slightly longer playtime to an already huge game. Thus, Persona 4 Golden is a steal at $10.00 on the PSN this week if you have a Vita.
Those looking for a something a bit raunchier in their gaming experience will be able to grab South Park, the Stick of Truth from the Humble store for $7.49, 75% off its original price, for the next twenty-four hours. The game packs all the usual humor of South Park into a goofy RPG experience that is a huge departure from most games in the genre.
Also at the Humble Store is a sale on Tomb Raider 1-6 and Legend all of which are 66% off at the moment, bringing their final price to a mere $2.37 each. If you’re a new fan, or just looking to experience the treasure hunting, ruins exploring past of this long-running series, this is an excellent opportunity to do so.
For those looking for a gag gift for the game in their life, Jon Romero’s legendarily bad FPS Daikatana is also on sale for $2.37 at the Humble Store. Though even that might be too high a price to pay to experience such awfulness.
