Another week, another set of new deals at my GameFanShop partner store. You order the game through my partner link, register your account, and receive the download code for Steam, Origin, or whatever the manufacturer's download site of preference is. I receive a small commission on the sale that helps keep Sketchy Details up and running. It's a win/win for gaming fans. A few really good deals from last week have gotten even better. BioShock Infinite is on sale for $44.99, down from the regular price of $59.99; this is $2 less than last week. Defiance is on sale for $43.99, down from the regular price of $59.99; this is $6 less than last week. Tomb Raider is on sale for $35.99, down from the regular price of $49.99; this is $1 less than last week.
Dishonored is added to the weekly deals today, dropping one of my favorite games of 2012 to 53% of its retail price. $27.99 is a steal for solving every puzzle by summoning plague rats. For the FPS fan, Borderlands 2 also drops to half off at $29.99.
The Sims 3, a game I really enjoyed when it came out for its scope and new gameplay elements, can be had for $15.99 this week. That's 47% off the retail price. If traditional Sims action is too passe for you, you can pick up the wild The Sims Medieval for $12.99 (57% off). That's the stand-alone spin-off with light RPG elements and a high fantasy setting. It's a hoot.
Finally, for my older pick, I have to go with one of the more inventive puzzle/adventure games in recent memory. Stacking has you control the various members of a family of Russian stacking dolls. The family members are abducted in unexpected ways and they must manipulate the other dolls around them by jumping inside to obtain new abilities. It's a very stylized game that can be great fun for the whole family. You can get it for $14.99 right now.
