PixelJunk Games As Low As $1!

So you blew your last paycheck making that fully-functional Iron Man costume to impress everyone at the midnight Avengers screening, and now you have no money left over to spend on games…Or so you think! In a double-anniversary celebration (10 years for Q-Games, 5 years for the PixelJunk franchise), Sony is having a massive sale on the PlayStation Network for all PixelJunk games! And these isn’t your typical “20% off” massive sale or “PlayStation Plus exclusive” massive sale. No, this is the Mac Daddy of PSN sales. This is 90% off.

Starting today through next Tuesday, snag these beauties for only $1!

And the fun doesn’t stop there! Grab PixelJunk SideScroller and PixelJunk Shooter 2 for 50% off at $4.99 apiece. PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe, the PSP counterpart to the console title, is also half off at $9.99.

But really, why should you trust me? Who’s this Luke guy, and how do I know if he really knows his stuff? Well friends, to boost your confidence on the excellence of every PixelJunk game on the list, I’ve linked them all to their Metacritic pages for you to bask in the glory of aggregated rave reviews. Too much work? Dream easy knowing the average score hovers right around an 80. With genres ranging from tower defense to slot car racing to trippy platforming and beyond, PixelJunk ensures there is something for everyone to enjoy.

I know, I know, the kids these days need some visuals to go along with the written word. In that case, enjoy the video the PlayStation Channel put together to highlight the event.

Before I go, I must share my shame: I am a proud PS3 owner, yet have never played a single PixelJunk title. Luckily, that’s all about to change as I will certainly be picking up Eden, Monsters, and Shooter. Maybe I’ll even put together a little piece about my impressions. Would you like that? Let me know. Either way, be sure to pick up as many PixelJunk games as your wallet allows, and hopefully the overwhelming support will cause these crazy sales to pop up on the PSN all the time!
