Weekend Console Download Deals for May 20: Stranger of Paradise on sale

It's time to kill Chaos at a pretty good discount.


Get in the car, loser, we're going to kill Chaos. Yes, if you've been waiting for a discount on Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, your time has finally come. Those who have followed me here at Shacknews are aware that I was fully prepared for this to be the Worst Game of 2022, but was stunned to see that this was not the case. Not only that, but the game was genuinely pretty good. Of course, those reading this are likely thinking, "I'm not paying full price for something that's just 'pretty good' when there are so many great games out there." That's understandable, which is why you'll be happy to hear that Stranger of Paradise is getting its first major discount this week on both PlayStation and Xbox.

Elsewhere, Xbox has a fresh Publisher Spotlight Series Sale running now, while also celebrating fighting games and indie titles. If you have your Nintendo Switch, you can find the best of Mega Man. Lastly, PlayStation owners, it's time to pick up the best of remasters and retro titles, including Alan Wake Remastered.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
