Are you stuck for things to play this weekend? After offering their comprehensive JRPG lineup to misery last week, Square Enix gutted the price of the Eidos Anthology package on Steam this week as part of the “Stay Home & Play” campaign – offering 54 PC classics, contemporary bangers and trivia bizarre for just under £ 30, to help charities affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Hoping to force you to stay inside for a few hundred more hours, Square Enix now offers a sizeable portion of Eidos’ 10-year lineage with a 95% discount. There are over £ 530 of extraordinarily great games going on Vapor for £ 28.38 / $ 39.24, with 100% of the proceeds going to charities and food banks in North America and Europe.
The 54-game package includes valuable help for classic PC games. At a glance, you have all the Tomb Raiders (minus those of 2018 Shadow Of The Tomb Raider), all the Thief games (included the bad one) and the whole Deus ex align. Beyond the pedigree of the 90s, however, you also look at the top three Just because games, the first full season of Life is strangeand the brilliant Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, among others. I should keep you busy, I think.
The bundle also includes a load full of DLC for many of its latest offerings, not counted in the 54-title count. Of course, such a large package cannot only contain bangers. Next to some mediocre sequels and bizarre curiosities like Omikron: The Nomad Soul, grabbing the bundle will curse you with the ownership of Daikatana, a game that is exactly as terrible as its reputation suggests, if you believe in John Walker.
Ah well. At least it’s for a good cause.
