    I missed Summer of Arcade, so this is the next best thing. I'll probably literally buy all of these. toast

    Oh cool, wanted to give Donut County a try. Looks like mindless, simple fun especially as a Katamari fan.

    $5 back is ok. Nothing too special. Would have been nice if there was something limited to get if you buy some or all of them.
    Like stuff for your avatar or a wallpaper or a free game or a movie or anything.

    But bringing this just to a financial decision it'll make more sense to wait for the inevitable 50% off sale for these games.

    A lot of these games I'm definitely going to try out and see how they are. Hopefully I like a few of them at least! They look decently promising.

    Never heard of Donut County until just last night during the Game Awards.
    Every game with DLC that you pay for is a paid update.

    Anyone know what happened to "Outer Wilds"? I got it free on mixer pre order. Now it comes up with error and is completely missing from the marketplace.

    I’ll have to look into the other games, but so far Subnautica is the only one that interests me here.

    Bring back XBLA. I loved the subtitle, and Winter of Arcade is a start. I'm in on Ashen, Below, and Monster Boy.

    Aaaaand if you tally up the cost, even with 5$ back after the first pickup, still cheaper to get a 3 month GPsub.
    Ive gone with buying myself new home gym equipment most pay periods now because super sales, GwG and GP give me most of what id play anyways. Its not worth it, unless you seriously want to support a certain studio or what not, then thats up to the individual.

    There is a topic about this on the forum pages of this game with a twitter link asking about this. According to the devs it's just a technical issue. Guess we will see in the future.
