A new week is upon us once again, so of course that means a new This Week on Steam! Here's the best of what Steam has to offer this upcoming week.
This Week's Top Picks
The fine men and women at Capybara Games have been giving us great games for years now, including titles like Critter Crunch and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes. Today Super Time Force Ultra, (or STFU… for short) enters the spotlight, an upgraded version of the time traveling action-platformer which came out on Xbox platforms this spring.
Capybara describe the game best by saying “Super Time Force isn’t what would happen if Braid and Contra had a baby. Super Time Force is what would happen if Braid and Contra had a party!” STFU just released today at a price of $13.49, due to a 10% discount, which will last until September 1st.
Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light both received critical praise when they were released in 2010 and 2013 respectively. 4A Games are now releasing upgraded versions of both games on August 26th. The Redux versions use the latest version of 4A’s engine, which has improved graphics compared to Last Light’s engine. Metro 2033 Redux, meanwhile, had to be built from the ground up because of this change, and the game will also include all of the original DLC. Both games also include few new features, such as a new “Survival” playstyle for Metro: Last Light Redux. Each game will be priced at $25, however those who own one of the “original” versions will get a 50% discount off that title's Redux version if they pre-order. This discount will disappear after the game releases on Steam tomorrow (around 1PM EST).
