    Well, that Wargames tie-in didn't last long. Also, Tetris Ultimate was available on disc?

    I guess few publishers are dumb enough to delist a game without giving it away via GwG or even making it available via Game Pass first - especially a retail game that bombed as bad as Ghostbusters. Considering it's an Activision game, though, that move didn't come as the slightest surprise. Has there ever been a GwG title published by Activision? I don't think so, though I might be wrong.

    Glad I picked up #WarGames. I'll grab Castlevania when it goes on sale next.
    Praise the Sun!

    Sorry it wasn't. I got a bit too trigger happy with copy/paste. I've removed it now.

    I was unable to grt #WarGames because it wasn't available in my country although I was very intrigued. Was it any good?

    Yes we are getting one this month. Star Wars Jedi Knight (Xbox OG) is published by Activision in Europe

    Crap. I was hoping Tetris Ultimate would someday go GWG to make the ratios really skyrocket :/

    You'd think they'd announce the delistings prior to delisting to give people a chance to purchase them.
    There is always a way.

    It was okay. I felt it was worth the asking price, with that said, you're not missing much and you could get the gist of the experience by watching a video of a playthrough.

    Still not buying AER without a discount!
    Broke is a state of wallet. Poverty is a state of mind.

    LOL! Yeah, THAT sounds like Activision - giving us an OG Xbox game released 16 years ago.

    By GwG I meant Xbox 360 and One, not games of the 6th console generation.

    Strange the C&C 3: Kane's Wrath being delisted since it just became backward compatible just last month. I'd bet this one is temporary unless it has to do with one of the actor's likeness in the game that needs relicensing.

    Obviously you need to re-read that they put up digital copies of that and castlevania Los.
