The Game Guy
The fourth day of May has become a good day to limit social media activity to one hour. At first the dozens of #Maythe4thBeWithYou hashtags remind Twitter users that it is indeed Star Wars day, but the bit wears thin at around 11 a.m. of a standard working day even for a Star Wars fan like myself. The real benefit of May 4th is the severe discounts of Star Wars games on marketplaces like Steam, iOS and the Google Play store. Enduring the echochamber of hashtags is worth nabbing old classics at low prices.
The highlight of this year’s Star Wars day deals was BioWare’s “Knights of the Old Republic,” or “KOTOR” for short, for iOS. The game was marked down by 70% for the low price of $2.99. “KOTOR” remains one of my favorite games of all time, let alone the best Star Wars game I’ve ever played, so I was looking forward to restarting my journey of becoming a Jedi Knight or Sith Lord.
