    Ashen is definitely on my list, great setting with the potential for awesome backstory ad lore. Additional Monster Boy will make it to my collection one day as well. Glad to see Below is finally getting a release too, I remember that was delayed a few times.

    But it will be 2019 will be the year I finally get to play that beloved-looking ID game: Tunic. That is literally the only game i'm really looking forward to playing.

    Arent most of these in gamepass and/or will be?
    My thoughts exactly. The three that would interest me are all on Game Pass.

    So if you have Game Pass your choice of buying 3 games become limited.

    More games to choose from would be nice.

    Plus with huge Backlog, GWG, Game Pass and still buying games when very cheap on sale there's little point paying full price for any of them.

    The reward seems pretty small too

    But if you don't suffer from above ailments like myself then there are some good games.

    Yeah its a shame really, if you already have subscriptions, 4 of these games will be in Game Pass ( Mutant Year Zero, Ashen, Kingdoms New Crown and Below )

    And when you think that there could be an end of year sale, makes you think about waiting, but then you have a packed 2019, well for people who are abit more adventurous and like playing other types of games.

    its a No from me this time, but maybe in the future if they have truly brought the Arcade back then maybe I will get games in the next one.

    Where is the Last Night? The game just disappeared after the developer triggered the faminazis. I thought it was supposed to come this last summer

    Donut County looks pretty interesting. I feel like if I can find one more game on that list that I'd be interested in I'd hop in. I'll take the $5 back laugh

    This is the first I've heard of Donut County and it makes me think it could be like a variant on Beautiful Katamari - can't wait!

    The price points on a lot of these games make it hard to buy them for the winter promotion. The return on it just doesn't outweigh the cost in this case cry
