Getting the best games at the best of times is a rarity disguised blessing. Often times your favorite games are either not available on some particular console, or you are kind of out of budget to get them. And at times there aren’t any new games worth buying. However, whether you call it a stroke of luck or a silver lining, there comes a time when you get your long awaited games on the best deals and on your living room gaming consoles, or perhaps on your smartphone!
Not only are indie hits Stardew Valley and Axiom Verge debuting on the Nintendo Switch, but it’s a surprisingly great week for mobile platforms, too. For those longing to play Professor Layton, but could not afford the 3DS. The series’ latest is now on Android and iOS and what’s exciting is it’s for half the cost of the 3DS game, too.
That cool looking Stranger Things RPG is on phones now too; in case you just can’t wait for season 2. With this I present you a list of must play games this weekend, offers that you would thoroughly enjoy, and gaming that you would never get over:
