Kes- Infamous: Second Son

In celebration of the upcoming release of Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, why not go back to the very start of the PS4 generation? The third entry in the PlayStation exclusive series, Second Son moves the action away from Empire City and New Marais and former protagonist electric-charged Cole McGrath, and into the modern Seattle with beanie-wearing, cocky, whipper-snapper Delsin Rowe. His superpower? Theft. The man steals powers away from other conduits. While obviously rude, this opens up the power set for the third-person action superhero playground in wild ways. Who knew smoke would be useful in a fight? Or neon? It’s a really creative subversion of traditional powers that still looks and plays great even — wait, let me check this — seven years later. Nah, nah, nah… I don’t want to do this sale pick anymore, it makes me feel old.

Anyhoo, the game is a blast and a great platinum length at 20 hours. Honestly, the game knows not to overstay its welcome, leaving you wanting more even all these years later. While the story is less comic-booky, there is a definite hint of shallowness that wasn’t present in the previous entries. It is really the world that shines, though. Seattle is gorgeous and the perfect rendition of the last-gen PS3-era world design, traversable with movement controls that are just as joyful as you remember the Sly Cooper games being back in the day. The supporting cast is decent, with Fetch — a neon-powered friend — being a stand out to the point where her expansion First Light is a must-play for Infamous fans. Indeed, the entire contextual narrative is just wicked with strong-X-Men vibes. I would highly recommend a pick up of this on sale if you haven’t played it, a PS4 essential!

Heidi

Heidi - Jurassic World Evolution

80% off for Jurassic World Evolution is an absolute steal. Whether you’re looking for some peaceful park management or some carnivorous chaos, Jurassic World Evolution has your back. It boasts a great campaign to play through, where you attempt to juggle the needs and wants of park guests, staff, and the dinos themselves — bearing in mind that if your staff feel neglected, they’ll react with full on park sabotage. So, you know. No pressure. The core gameplay loop of researching dinosaur fossils, extracting DNA, and genetically modifying your dinosaurs doesn’t really get old, especially since there are so many species to research. There’s a sandbox mode too if you fancy something a little more laid back, or a challenge mode if you’re looking for even more pressure.

I’ve lost a good few hours to Jurassic World Evolution and had a blast while doing so. Whether you’re a fan of the movies, books, or just of dinosaurs themselves, the thrill of hearing that iconic T-Rex roar is just as fresh 40 hours in as it is the first time you unleash one into the park. It can feel a little limited in some areas, and there’s definite room for improvement with the sequel, so Jurassic World Evolution at full price could be thought a little dear — but any sale, especially 80% off, is a bargain.

Sean - Sniper Elite 4: Digital Deluxe Edition

What’s better than shooting nazis in the balls? Shooting uber nazi Adolf Hitler in his one ball, that’s what! Sniper Elite 4: Digital Deluxe Edition is on sale for just $8.99/£6.99/€8.99, and it’s an absolute steal at that price. The Digital Deluxe Edition includes the full game and season pass, meaning you get not only a bunch of cosmetics and character packs but also four chunky campaign expansions, including Target Führer, where you are tasked with hunting down Adolf Hitler and destroying a U-boat base. In a lot of ways, Sniper Elite 4 is similar to the recent Hitman games and Metal Gear Solid V. You have a large sandbox level that you’ll need to stealthily move through before figuring out who your target is and eliminating them. Sure, it’s not quite as nuanced as the rebooted Hitman series or as in-depth as Metal Gear Solid V, but Rebellion really did get the emergent stealth gameplay bang on with Sniper Elite 4. They also nailed that fantastically gory x-ray kill cam — I promise you, it never gets old watching a nazi’s balls explode into fleshy chunks before your very eyes.
