$20 Game of the Week: Valdis Story- Abyssal City (PC)

valdisstory

Created by Indie developers Endless Fluff games, Valdis Story is the type of game that would have been a best seller if it had been released on the Playstation, or even the Super Nintendo. Valdis Story’s graphics and sound are a work of art, the story is intriguing, and the Castlevania: Symphony of The Night style gameplay isn’t bad either. Valdis Story began in 2007 as a free game on the developer’s website. The game was given a kickstarter for a full scale release, and the kickstarter was successful, with the game even being greenlighted for Steam this past October. In fact, you might have picked it up for cheap during one of those Steam sales.

$20 Game of the Week: Long Live the Queen (PC)

lltq

Developed by Hanako Games, Long Live the Queen is a visual novel that can become very addictive. Don’t let its cutesy nature fool you. The game is extremely dark, and deals with heavy political intrigue. You play as the Elodie, princess of the kingdom of Nova. Your mother, the queen has recently been assassinated, and you have to survive for 40 weeks until your coronation. However, it won’t be easy. Enemies, both inside and outside the kingdom, conspire against you, and you can meet your end in a number of ways. By taking classes you increase your stats in various areas, and increasing them in the right area can mean the difference between life and death. Although the game is short, you’ll get swept up in the game as you constantly backtrack and experiment on the best way to keep Elodie alive.

$20 Game of the Week: The Stanley Parable (PC)

The-Stanley-Parable-start-screen

The best way to describe The Stanley Parable is a piece of art which uses video game mechanics (yeah I know, it’s the old ‘Games as Art’, but work with me here people). Originally a Source Mod, The Stanley Parable has received a full release on Steam as well as a visual upgrade and achievements. This game, if you can call it that, is unique. There are no puzzles, no guns, or enemies to shoot. What you do is explore, and either follow the narrator’s directions, or don’t. You’ll either love it or hate it, so grab the demo and try it out if you think it’s something you would like. If you do like it, it’s on sale during Steam’s Winter promotion.

I don't care how cheap it is, saving cheese on that blender can't be worth THIS much!

I don’t care how cheap it is, saving cheese on that blender can’t be worth THIS much!

By now, Black Friday has passed, and in a few short hours, we will be set upon by Cyber Monday. What better way to follow up a day meant for being thankful for what you got than by spending money on things you don’t need? Of course many of you would rather not camp out, stand in line, or get trampled over a juicer that’s %25 percent off, but you still wanna expand your video game collection for less. Well, we got your back! This is powet’s annual Green Everyday post. Everything you see on this list is $20 or less. Why are we doing this the Sunday after Black Friday? Because they are $20 or lower year round. That’s right, no standing in line, no getting up early, no camping out, no nothing. All of these games are downloadable, or at least can be ordered online, so you don’t even gotta leave your house! How awesome is that? A few of these you might have seen before, but they’re so awesome they’re worth another look.

$20 Game of the Week: Choplifter HD (PC, PSN, XBLA)

choplifterhd

Choplifter HD is a remake of the classic bullet hell game. Taking control of an up and coming rookie pilot, you are tasked with getting civilians to safety under hellacious conditions.

Regardless of if you played the classic Choplifter, or this is your first introduction to the franchise, Choplifter HD is a fun and challenging update of a classic.

BIT.TRIP Runner2 Releases

Runner2 is the follow-up by Gaijin Games to the original chiptune-inspired auto-runner game (cleverly named “Runner”), featuring CommanderVideo as an erstwhile nyan cat — or Robot Unicorn, except you don’t necessarily have to die. And you know they’re serious about you playing this game, because they didn’t have time to put a space between “Runner” and “2”!

Powet Top 5: Top 5 Digital Distribution Services

UbiSoft recently threw it’s hat into the Digital Distribution ring with it’s own Uplay service.

Like it or not, digital distribution is here to stay. It doesn’t have to be a bad thing though. For a PC gamer like me, having my games on Steam and downloading them whenever I get a new computer beats the shit out of having to install all my games from disc and entering in product keys. For a console gamer, you can pick up some of the best current and old-school games without leaving your couch. Heck, for smartphone users, you can access fun games with the click of a button. Console development is leaning towards digital distribution, and PC gaming has already been there for years. Several digital distribution services have popped up, each with their own selection. Here are 5 of the best, chosen by their selection, prices, and ease of use.

$20 Game of the Week: Rochard (PC, Mac, PSN, Linux)

Seen in the most recent Humble Indie Bundle, Rochard is a 2D Platform/Puzzle hybrid in which players manipulate gravity to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. Playing as John Rochard, you are on a routine space mining mission for the Skyrig Corporation. However, things go wrong pretty quickly, and you find yourself battling Space Bandits and other enemies as you investigate what’s going on. Your main weapon is the G-Lifter, a gun which can manipulate gravity to life objects. You can also control gravity to allow yourself to jump higher, and alter the trajectories of objects. Each of the game’s puzzles revolve around gravity, same way as Portal’s puzzles centered around teleportation and physics. The gameplay is easy to pick up on while challenging enough to keep you engaged. It’s available on Steam and PSN, but you can grab it as part of Humble Bundle 6 until Monday October 1st at 7pm EST.
