Dustforce and Bastion are your mid-week PC bargains

May 01 // Alasdair Duncan

As if keeping myself on a tight budget wasn't hard enough, I've developed this compulsion to check Steam everyday at 6 p.m. GMT to see what the new deals are. Thankfully, I already own one of the games featured in Steam's midweek offers, but if you've been holding off on purchasing Bastion, which is 60% off, or Dustforcewhich is reduced by 50%then now's the time to break out your wallet. 

Whilst our own Jim Sterling wasn't totally enamored by Bastion's charms, I felt it was one of the best games I played last year. Jason Carbal certainly enjoyed Dustforce and I've been itching to play it since it came out earlier in the year, even though it looks like another game that will totally show up my lack of platforming skills.

Best of all, both games have excellent soundtracks which you can purchase through Steam as well. Darren Korb's soundtrack for Bastion was once of my favorite albums from last year, and community member Kaggen pointed me in the way of Dustforce's excellent soundtrack via Twitter a few days ago. Both are great candidates for inclusion in a future Note Worthy feature.
