Weekly Weekend Round-Up: January 16th - 18th

Games to pass the time as we relax this weekend.

Another week of long works is calming down, and it's time to unwind again. This new year has been extremely light on fresh releases, but there are still reasons to play games. We all hold out on buying certain games, and we all have our own reasons for finally giving in and making the purchase. Typically, my reason is often I didn't want to spend the money to buy a game at full-price, so sales are often the culprit behind new purchases of older games.

Thus, this edition of weekend round-up will feature great games that are on sale right now. 

Terraria - $10 (XBLA X1)

Terraria a 2D Minecraft. This game is as amazing, in my opinion, as Minecraft. You are able to do just about the same things, but with better enemies. For those that want a small change from Minecraft, but still want the fun of digging and scrounging, look no further.

Saints Row 4 - $4.99 (Steam)

All of the Saints Row games are on sale right now. With Saints Row 4 being the most recent installment players, will be more apt to take Steam up on the sale. Saints Row 4 offers more of the off-the-wall and strange acts that the series is known for, and would be a great buy at this price.

L.A Noire - $12 (PS3)

L.A Noire was actually the first Rockstar game I played all the way through. This game was amazing all the way around. There is no reason players should pass this sale up. 

These games are fairly old, but all are on sale this week and at good prices. If you haven't had a chance to play these games yet, you should definitely check these out. What will you be playing this weekend? Comment below.
