Save on two of last year's best games with Xbox's Deals with Gold

As we've become accustomed to on a weekly basis, Xbox has again discounted some titles for its Xbox Live Gold subscribers. This week's Deals with Gold might stick out a bit more than usual, because it features two of the best...

Donkey Kong Country trilogy returning to Virtual Console in the UK

Back in November 2012, Nintendo removed the Donkey Kong Country series from the Wii's Virtual Console for some reason that, to my knowledge, was never publicly addressed. But those games will resurface this month on Wii U alo...

These free Octodad: Dadliest Catch levels are going to end in disaster photo
These free Octodad: Dadliest Catch levels are going to end in disaster
by Jordan Devore

Feeding watermelon to a hospital patient? What a nice guy, that Octodad. Such large, sharp forks he's got, too. It's a good thing he is an adult human with fully developed motor skills.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch was a treat, but I was left wanting more. Thankfully, more is coming, and it'll be here real soon. The adventures of our favorite secret octopus father continue with two new levels, Dad Romance and Medical Mess, releasing Tuesday for free on PS4, PC, Mac, and Linux.

What's more, Dadliest Catch will be half off next week on PlayStation Network, Steam, and the Humble Store. That brings the game down to $7.50. Pretty good.

Konami PSN sale: Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania, Suikoden

Tons of Metal Gear Solid games in this PlayStation Network sale. I was never going to grab Ground Zeroes at full price, but now we're talking. A few older gems in here, too: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes (PS3) - $9.99 / $8...

Pac-Man CE DX+ is ridiculously good and free to play on Steam until Monday photo
Pac-Man CE DX+ is ridiculously good and free to play on Steam until Monday
by Jordan Devore

This week on Steam, you can check out the superb Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ for free as Namco plays the part of a "friendly" drug dealer. The promotion lasts until Monday at 10:00am Pacific and in that time the game and its DLC are 66 percent off.

Building up a huge chain of ghosts -- a ghost train, if you will -- and then eating them all in the span of a couple seconds is so damn satisfying. See that image up there? Uh huh.

Just play this already. Cancel plans. Shun responsibilities. There is only time for Pac-Man, now.

Download Halo: Reach for free with Xbox Live Gold
by Jordan Devore

Now through September 30, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download Halo: Reach for free through Microsoft's Games with Gold program. And those of you with an Xbox One still have the rest of the month to nab the excellent Super Time Force. Just putting that out there.

Reach has the distinction of being the last Halo game I was even moderately into, though my memory of it is mostly hazy. I do recall struggling quite a bit toward the end of the game. Funny how of all the things I could remember about my playthrough, it ends up being the painful part.

Wolfire's cool, experimental FPS Receiver is free today photo
Wolfire's cool, experimental FPS Receiver is free today
by Jordan Devore

Wolfire Games' Receiver is a first-person shooter unlike any other I've played.

Instead of a quick button press to reload your gun, here, reloading is a much more realistic, multi-step process that requires effort on your part. As in, you'll need to actually practice. Also, levels are randomized and there are creepy drones out to get you. Good luck!

You can and should experience Receiver, if only for a few moments, especially now that it's free through the Humble Store. Offer's good for today only. Be sure to redeem your Steam key by September 29.

inFamous: Second Son is $20 off on PSN

Now through September 5 at 12:00pm Pacific, you can download inFamous: Second Son on PlayStation Network for $39.59. Not the steepest price cut, especially for a "flash sale," but 20 bucks is 20 bucks. Worth considering if you aren't opposed to owning games digitally. Easily one of the best titles on PS4. And it's got a photo mode, too. inFAMOUS Second Son Flash Sale Starts Now [PlayStation Blog]

September Games with Gold: Super Time Force, Halo: Reach, and Monaco photo
September Games with Gold: Super Time Force, Halo: Reach, and Monaco
by Jordan Devore

Next month's Games with Gold lineup is among the service's best yet.

Xbox 360 owners who are subscribed to Xbox Live Gold can nab Monaco: What's Yours is Mine for free from September 1 - 15, followed by Halo: Reach from September 16 - 30, while Xbox One owners will have all of September to download Super Time Force.

Shame about the Xbox 360 version of Super Time Force not being included here, but if you're thinking of playing it there I'd recommend going for the Ultra PC release instead.
