    May the 4th be with you!

    A good mix on sale, should keep people happy this week. Especially if you like COD.

    Although you can't beat They Shall Not Pass for Battlefield 1 being FREE until 14th May 2018

    I'm tempted by Alien: Isolation then I think it will probably be GwG.

    Aww no Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 discount? Guess they oddly don’t wanna cash in with the movie out :(

    Since when did TA list the game that the DLC is for? Nice touch!

    New this week. A much requested improvement.

    Nothing for me this week, which is a good thing for my wallet at the moment!
    I’d recommend Alien Isolation for £7.50, awesome game!

    Also thanks for the DLC game titles! Makes it so much easier to know what’s what.

    Never Alone + DLC looks interesting, nothing else caught my eye.

    I bought "I, Hope" a few days ago, at the regular $9.99 price tag. I don't regret missing out on the sale, because, according to the description on the website, all profits go to charity. I think it is a really cute game, and I truly enjoy playing it, except for the fact that some of the challenges are much more challenging than I expected, so it is very difficult for a casual player who only plays video games once in a while. It would probably not be too difficult for someone who spends a lot of time playing video games, but it would probably still be challenging enough to not be too easy for someone who enjoys challenging games. I recommend it as a cute/fun game, but also for charitable reasons.

    This is a copy and paste from the Xbox website, in the description of "I, Hope".

    "Developed in partnership with hospitals and child researchers to have a poignant impact on the lives of children fighting cancer, "I, Hope" is also donating fully 100% of all sales to GameChanger Charity, an organization that supports children and families fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses."

    Even if it goes GWG, it's unlikely to be the complete edition, so if you want the DLCs (none of which have achievements, btw) then you'll prob pay more for them then this deal.

    Fragments of Him, Never Alone and Wheels of Aurelia are definate buys and I may take a chance on Overuled as well.

    Very good improvement to the dlc. Not to sound entitled or anything, but do you think you guys could add which ones have achievements like you used to?
  • Posted on 01 May 18 at 01:21Permalink
    This sale is fucking garbage for dlc.
  • Posted on 01 May 18 at 01:38Permalink
    Thanks for including the game's name for the dlc. Much appreciated and very helpful.
    This space for rent.

    Pretty sad when you see CoD Ghosts 67% off and its still $20
    Every game with DLC that you pay for is a paid update.

    Honestly, I've been debating on whether to buy Alien: Isolation or not and this sale has definitely made up my mind.

    Now if only I could have my Advanced Warfare DLC on sale, not just the entire game. I already have it on disc, why get a second time?

    Pretty good choices. I'll pick up 'Alien Isolation' and 'Infinite Warfare'. If you haven't done so already, PLEASE (!) do yourselves a favor and play 'Edith Finch'. It's one of the best games I've played all decade.
