  • Serious question- Are any of these “el-cheapo” games actually worth the price u pay?

    • Bastion is a little old, originally released 10 years ago. Its definitely good though. Transistor has good reviews, this will be the first time I've played it though.

    • Bastion and Transistor are fantastic games, most of the other el-cheapo games, probably not worth your time and money.

    • OTOH I thought Bastion was dullsville. It's one of the early indie games with street cred tho so everyone raves about it.

      However, hades is good.

      Transistor I'm looking forward to trying.

      Same developer.

      They are no brainer purchases at these prices.

      • Agreed that Bastion was kind of boring, especially for an ARPG. People apparently loved the story but I thought it was a bit pretentious.

        I couldn't get past the first 20 minutes of Transistor because of how annoying the talking sword was. Whose idea was it to have an Alec Baldwin soundalike narrating what you're doing throughout the entire game?!

        Hades is excellent though - one of the best roguelites I've played.

        • Yeah the bastion story was dull, cliched, predictable and conceited.

          BUT if they didn't make bastion they would never have made Hades. Which is such a great game. So i don't mind having paid for bastion lol.

      • Yeah I also thought Bastion was quite boring. Stoped playing after the first level or two. Hades is exceptionally good. Haven't played Transistor yet.


        I didn’t think that much of Bastion, and I'm afraid I thought even less of Transistor. Your tastes may differ.

      Limbo for $3 is an absolute bargain!

    • These two games are great.

    • Transistor is fantastic. The story, the music, the gameplay. Definitely worth it.

  • Transistor & Bastion are one of the best indie games ever I've played. Totally bargain value for top quality indie games! Worth buying at both prices. Same developer of Hades.

  • Just bought Katana Zero onsale for $13.50.
    Any other great games in this sale you guys can recommend snapping up?

  • Aaah Switch deals. The deals that remind you that you have those games on PS Vita

  • I got both maybe 1-2 years ago on a similar sale.
    I thought Bastion was okay, it just never clicked for me fully.
    Transistor I thought was fantastic. I enjoyed both the playstyle and story.
    Recommend both at the price, as I know many are the reverse of me and prefer Bastion!

  • I really enjoyed Transistor.

  • Thanks for the link, I downloaded the original DOOM for Switch for $3:72

  • Transistor is one of the handful of games I've played twice. I guess as I had no idea wtf was happening the first time.

    Well worth a fiver.

  • Lego City Undercover is a good sandbox game, good to keep the kids occupied particularly if you think that GTA V might not be appropriate for them.

    Spiritfarer is also at its cheapest price. Stunning game but its shocking that they still havent resolved the bugs by now.

    Hades also having its usual 20% off I see.

  • SteamWorld Heist is good.

  • WonderBoy is $7 omg I played the original on the master system back when I was a kid every day!
