Our Take
If you haven’t yet picked up FTL, there is no reason not to spend the $3.39. It’s one of my favorite games of last year, and one that continues to provide deep challenge even after all these months.

I loved Baldur’s Gate in its original release, and I find myself tempted by its current price tag. Finally, State of Decay is one of the most engaging zombie simulators I’ve played. The Xbox 360 version was challenging, but also modeled human relationships among survivors better than most other comparable titles.
