Cheap Game Deals – August 2014
The last full week of August is here, which means right around the corner is a stampede of new games waiting to crush us under the might of their combined costs. But have no fear, because cheap games are here to give your poor wallet a bit of relief while still allowing you to game on some fairly new titles.
The highlight this week is Metro Redux, which is the next-gen bundle that includes Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. You’re going to get a whole lot of brutal gameplay and brilliantly drab aesthetics for a relatively cheap introductory price. Check out the rest of the deals below to see how much you can save and which titles are worthy of your time.
Metro Redux (PS4/Xbox One)
Play through two Metro titles, all revamped for the next-gen platforms. Not only are the graphics ridiculously detailed, but you’ll be able to roam through the broken wastes of a post-apocalyptic Russia. If you don’t consider that hardcore, then you’re a frightening individual.
Bound by Flame (PS4)
In Bound by Flame, you’ll defend the land from demons while dealing with one of your own. Will you tap into the demonic powers of the entity residing in your body, unleashing its fiery wrath on your enemies or will you retain your humanity? Make your choices well, because your actions will affect all of those who surround you.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (Xbox One)

South Park: The Stick of Truth (PS3/Xbox 360)
Hey, new kid! Step into your new home of South Park and join the fight to regain the fabled Stick of Truth. Engage in a role-playing adventure as you join the cast of the hit TV show and unleash a variety of special attacks with varying degrees of hilarity.
Diablo 3 (PC)
Take on the forces of evil as the Monk, the Barbarian, the Wizard, the Witch Doctor or the Demon Hunter as you jump into the third installment of the famed dungeon-crawling series. Kill monsters, get loot, complete quests and then get more loot. It’s a beautiful cycle, which can now be yours for a low price of $20.
