To celebrate PAX Prime 2014 in Seattle this week, Sony is dropping the prices of games with a history of showing up big at the convention in previous years. 18 games have been slashed from their usual prices, and naturally, most of them are smaller budgeted games geared more at fans of indie games.

Let’s see, what’s a steal here?
My personal favorite on the list is Guacamelee, a wonderful “metroidvania” stylized game blended with the combat you can find in action brawlers. The Mexican Luchador themes and references to all of your favorite classic games don’t hurt it either.
Following Guacamelee, I’ve been really itching to try Transistor. Bastion is one of my favorite indie games in recent memory, and this follow up could be the first game I purchase for my PlayStation 4.
Speaking of which, I’ve had it for three weeks and I haven’t turned it one yet. My Nintendo 3DS gets all of my free gaming time these days. Go, go, next-gen gaming!
Child of Light is a no-brainer for a quality game, and who doesn’t love Ratchet & Clank? That Wolf Among Us Pass is also really tempting, similar to how I picked up the entire first season of The Walking Dead for super cheap during a sale.
So many choices, so many deals, but Transistor is looking like the one for me. I really need a reason to hook up my PlayStation 4. How about you?
