The Black Friday Sales go on sale this week both in stores and online as well from sites from Amazon to GameStop during the Thanksgiving weekend to those living in the US, this has always been a tradition every year for shoppers for grabbing a bargain for themselves or getting the best and cheap price for their family and loved ones for Christmas. But however from November 26th until December 1st is the Steam Fall Sale which goes online and you can pick up a good game on the Daily, Weekly or even on Special offer every hour on the hour.
I know you can buy game bundles in various categories pending on the genre of games you are into from the likes of Indie Royale, Humble Bundle and Indie Gala; more and more indie games are becoming more and more popular due to how fun the games are themselves on addicting gameplay or even some of the best graphics and visuals came come out of just one game on its own from the Indie Section winning multiple awards and reviews for it. Other Steam games will go on sale too like BioShock, Final Fantasy, The Walking Dead to DayZ, stuff from Steam Early Access could come up on the deals which is a program that will let you buy games while they are still in development which seems like a great idea meaning you are getting your money's worth out of it and does make it feel more like a Beta at the same time when you think about it.
I've played a few games on Steam but when I'm using steam I do tend to play more of the Indie titled games instead of the Value developer games or third-party developer games like Team Fortress 2, Portal, Lego based games and Left 4 Dead. Certain games on Steam you plan on buying do tell you the requirements and space you would need to install each game does help also telling you how fast the game could run on your PC hardware or on your laptop.
Here is a list of recommended Indie games which I would recommend to anyone if you see these games on offer during the Steam Fall 2014 Sale-
If this was released in the late 80's or early 90's for the NES this would be on the top list of everyone's list of favourite NES games, everything about Shovel Knight feels very retro for a 2D platformer has the same difficulty to what the Mega Man series has with a good challenge and a boss at the end of each stage including some gameplay that's very similar to DuckTales as well and your only weapon is a shovel where you can dig from the ground for treasure and using your shovel as a pogo stick to get around or defeating enemies. It's also on both the Wii U and 3DS through the eShop but this is by far one of the best games you'll ever see from 2014.
Five Nights at Freddy's was just recently released back in August with many praises on how scary the game itself the sequel got released this month making it twice as scarier than the first game. Game centers on a fictional pizza restuarnt at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where the player must act as a night security guard, defending themselves from the malfunctioning animatronic animal characters by tracking their movement through the facility using security cameras. The more you use your touch light during the hours you work the battery drains quickly and you need to think on how you can check the cameras and watching their movements, if both games go on sale its worth picking up both games if you want a good scare or playing the game with a group of friends and watch their reactions as they play the game through each night.
This may feel like an 8-bit sprite version of a Final Fantasy game but it's not based on a moving story of Dr. Eva Rosalene and Dr. Neil Watts as they journey through the memories of dying patient Johnny to fulfil his last wish: To weave the memory of having become an astronaut and visited the Moon. What really makes this short game shine is its emotional story and amazing soundtrack which feels more like a relaxation game but it's worth the play through if it’s on offer.
Always an Indie Classic Hotline Miami will very likely come on offer during the Steam Fall sale, this is a 2D top-down action game may feel something like the Grand Theft Auto series when you kill enemies with various weapons like a baseball bat, shotgun or a pipe but it's more of a stealth game too if you take out your enemies quietly without anyone seeing your or making as little noise as possible it can really be a challenge to get through. Much praise was given to its neon-soaked depiction of 1980s underground Miami, overflowing with raw brutality and ultraviolent close combat as the player finds himself outgunned and using his wits to choreograph a way through impossible situations. The game's soundtrack was lauded for accentuating the already heightened tension and gritty violence.
Pretty much already cheap it is on Steam but its actually in fact an addicting rail-shooter feels more like an arcade game where an malicious orb has cast Savant out of his tower and transformed his surroundings into dangerous enemies! Dodge and shoot your way back up the tower, and blast down waves of enemies as you make your way towards the top! As you progress, you unlock CDs that not only give you new tracks to listen.
