    I've been thinking the same thing. It's been on sale several times since Christmas, dropping in price each time. I'll be waiting for the GWG version fo sho.

    It's a good time to buy the DLC for super cheap though, that way I already have it when the game goes free.

    Finally, mentioning what games the DLCs are for, that a massive step in the right direction for TA!
    Yes, thank you so much. I'll take redundancy like "Farming Simulator 15 - JCB for Farming Simulator 15" than nothing it all. TA QOL just went way up! smile

    You just convinced me not to buy it. Plus it goes on sale all the time, so if it still hasn't been GwG months from now, I could just buy it then. laugh

    Yeah I was just recently looking over the music genre for games and Aaero caught my eye. Most likely gonna pick it up with the DLC.

    The Technomancer has been on sale for that price many times. Anyone thinking that it may drop below that price? I feel like it's like Recore in which no matter how many times it's on sale, it'll never drop below that price.

    Can anyone personally recommend the game as being worth it?
    Me! Technomancer has fun gameplay; it's punishing and a bit wonky. Do not mash! The game aesthetic would appeal to those who appreciate low quality sci-fi; like, you know it's going to be bad but you can't deny your affinity and subject yourself regardless. Completion requires a few playthroughs. The game-world did a fair job immersing the player with mystic electric powers, mutants, politics, factions, and street/thug-life on Mars. That 10-spot should yield about 60+ hours of entertainment.

    I recommend it for a relatively quick sci-fi action rpg.

    I hope Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom is a fun little game. I just bought it and will play it when I get a chance.

    If you're going for achievements, you don't need to buy DLC. The extra 500 gamerscore in ARK is a Title Update.

    Might be a good time to grab guardians from telltale. Gotta keep the marvel train fresh.

    Thanks a lot! Maybe I'll go on and pick it up this go around. Hopefully the price doesn't drop before I get to play it.

    Maybe I'll finally get Claybook. Would also love QUBE 2 but I feel it will drop in price a lot more eventually.

    Is Mordheim: City of the Damned worth it?
    Depends. It's hard in a kind of frustrating way but the strategy and team building is pretty enjoyable. Like the gameplay itself is pretty good, if a bit on the repetitive side, but the developers chose the lazies, stupidest way of making the game difficult - enemies basically "level up" to match your team. It's impossible to ever outmaneuver them via team building due to this.

    Also the community are a bunch of slavering yes men for the developers so if you go to seek any feedback / tips on any of your issues with the game you have to wade through lots of "you just don't get it" sorta responses. It's kind of like the Anti-Dark Souls community. Less "git gud and here's how" and more smug.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    Plus, Just Cause 2 was a GwG in the past, so there IS a precedent here. wink

    Well, I eneded up getting Shiness and Divinity on the strength of some recommendations from friends, so I hope they're good.
