It seems every week there's a new deal going on you don't want to miss! Right now Humble Store is offering free copies of Satellite Reign and other stores also have sales on.

The current Humble Monthly will also allow you to unlock the recently released Linux port of RUINER along with Kerbal Space Program.

There's also only four days left to grab the Humble Strategy Bundle, which has Planetary Annihilation: TITANS, Company of Heroes 2 charity DLC, Empire: Total War Collection, Tooth and Tail and money off Total War: WARHAMMER.

Meanwhile, on Steam, they've also just announced a big "VR Spring Sale", although there's tons of titles that aren't VR also on sale. Here's a few choice picks:

For those who do have a Vive on Linux, there's:

From what I understand, those should be okay for VR users on Linux. There's more that have VR support and a Linux version, but those are titles from Croteam that I know should work in VR for Linux too. Difficult to suggest any more, when a Vive is out of my price range to test and report on.

GOG is also still doing their sale, you can see some suggested titles from BTRE in his previous article. All his picks are good and still on sale!

As usual, if you find a tasty deal you don't want others to miss out on, the comments are open!

Oh man, Sat Reign is so good. Needs a relatively beefy computer, though, but still. Definitely worth your time.

Fixed the Rise store link, woops.

Really? I would say that it is not so good. It has a good potential, but the potential was not utilized sufficiently.

So many free games lately. You could play quite some without ever buying one.

You know why they do it though, simply to bring you back to the store and possibly by something

Rise of The Tomb Rider being on sale in the same day of the release of the Linux version, is not crazy, Liam...
I presume this was the real reason behind the delay of the Linux version of ROTTR...

I guess Feral already knew beforehand about this Steam "VR Spring Sale" and decided to do the things commercially right: A release with a launch sale... It worked for me, at least.

I'm gonna buy Talos Principle Gold too, for gift (about 6.65 U$D)

Are you nuts? Satellite Reign is one of the best tactical cRPGs out there. It has a very slick, fluid interface; it is open world with fast travel; it has research, it has cloning for improved stats, it has augmentations and inventory, it has an engaging story with lots of faction fighting for territory and power, it has moral dilemmas, amazing special powers, different specialization for the members of your squad, a very climatic cyberpunk setting with permanent rain, 90+ hours of gameplay, and slow-time tactical battles, which allow you time to think without eliminating the time pressure. It also has extensive stealth possibilities/tactics/mechanics, almost to the level of shadow tactics: blade of the shogun. I'd put it at least on the level of Divinity: Original Sin, can't understand what would be bad about it, care to explain?

The only thing bad about Satellite Reign is that it is so unique - I could not find any game with all its elements, specially the stealth mechanics (Shadow Tactics is not a RPG). I still have not finished it, but I will surely miss playing it. The game is its own genre.
