Shadow Warrior is a Good Buy This Week

Steam's Midweek Madness sale is bringing a few nice deals as it usually does.

GTA 5 is on sale as is Armello and Skyrim, various Ubisoft titles etc. But the one that stands out me is 2016's Shadow Warrior 2. Not only is it really fun and inlaid with immature humor, but it's also only $20.00. I think that's worth the purchase by itself but on top of that the 2013 reboot of the original title is included in the sale for free. But wait there's more... making the deal even sweeter is the classic redux version of the game from 1990's at only $2.00.

Now just from personal experience I'll say that I liked the 2013 Shadow Warrior better than the 2016 sequel. They're both worth playing but Shadow Warrior 2 has a kind of weird Borderlands feeling to it with the loot system and questing. If you haven't played them though check out the sale because for $22.00 you can snap up three games that will satisfy your funny bone and your penchant for brutal violence against ninja demons.

Steam Sale Aftermath: 140

Going through my Steam library to choose what to play next, I decided to go alphabetically. 140 was the first game of the list and I'm glad it was. These are my first impressions:
140 is a minimalistic platformer. You play as a shape-shifting geometrical figure. You're a square when you stay still, a circle when you move and a triangle when you jump. There's no story, just beautiful sights and amazing music. I think words are not enough to describe the feel of the game so here's its trailer for you to get an idea of how it sounds and looks.
Music plays an important part of the game since you'll have to time your jumps and movement to the rhythm of the soundtrack pretty often. There's a total of 3 levels in the game, each ending in a "boss fight". I must say the final boss was tough as nails and I'm sure luck had something to do with my victory. Maybe I was just in the zone.Is the game worth a try?Yes, it is. The game is very short. I went through its three levels in less than 70 minutes. However, those 70 minutes were a fantastic experience. The game currently retails for $5, but it's been on sale on several occasions. How much are you willing to pay for one hour of joy is up to you.
