    Armello is SERIOUSLY underrated, and can't be passed at $6 (usually $20).

    Why am I picking up a Lies of Astaroth vibe here? That ratio has me a little scared.
    Also, you have only 2 achievements unlocked?? shock

    Does the Torchwood & Goat DLC actually help with the harder achievements in Garden Warfare2? I have the trials keys already, but have absolutely no motivation to struggle through them.
    I'm asking myself the same thing. I haven't started the game yet, but I wonder just how helpful the on-sale DLC packs for PvZ:GW2 are.
    Hmmm it seems the dlc automatically unlocks this achievement once you spawn both characters. If so, I'm buying it tonight.

    There's a 50 win achievement. Also, it's more fun with friends. I've been looking for people to play with, so I haven't done much.

    Nothing like Lies.

    Aero! Been looking at this one? Anyone have any opinions on it? Is it rage inducing? Lol I know these types of games can vary from fun to brutal. Will at least get Dear Esther and gnomes garden 2,
    Aaero is fucking awesome. 1 of my fave indie games ever. It can be tough to get all the achs but it never frustrated me, its a ill have another go type game. It will take a few tries to 3star some tracks/levels but its fun, the dlc tracks are good n abit easier than base 1000gs i thought

    Stupid question..with Aaero..is the movement just made with button presses or are you also controlling your ship or whatever it is? If that makes any sense lol thanks as always guys for any feedback!

    You use left stick to follow a line to beat/speed of music. You also use right stick to target collectibles and enemies and bosses. I was honestly on the fence bout it until i played it at a friends, the trailer doesnt do it justice, im not really a big fan of drum n bass music but when you play it....... It just fits

    Don't sleep on Mount & Blade – Warband. Great game with a hilarious cult following.

    Would it kill them to put the FH3 Hoonigan DLC on sale for once? Not Hot Wheels again... roll
    I feel your pain. Was hoping for that for a long time and now I won't buy it for the full price as a matter of principle...
    I get what you guys are saying especially since you’ve waited this long you might as well continue to wait but Hot wheels and Blizzard mountain are $20 so it makes sense for them to go on sale. Hoonigan is $7 so why not just consider that the sale price and buy it, like when it eventually goes on sale for $3-$4 you’ll have saved $3-$4 so it’s not like you’d be saving a lot lol.
    Of course this assumes US prices and maybe it’s worse in another country so if so then nevermind

    But eventually when FH3 is about to get delisted when FH5 releases I’m sure all the dlc will go on sale for really cheap so at least you can wait til then as a last hope.

    Thanks for the response! I agree the trailer is a bit underwhelming. I just keep hearing great things about it, so I may just take a chance on it. I have a feeling I won’t be able to complete it, but as long as I have a good time then I’ll be happy, granted a good chunk of cheevos wouldn’t hurt either lol I’m usually not that good at these types of games but almost always enjoy them 😁

    I don't think they typically put the smaller car packs on sale, just full DLC expansions, VIP, car pass, etc.
    Yeah true. I keep thinking of it as DLC because it has achievements but yeah maybe it will never go on sale because it's essentially a car pack.

    Was that in a "normal" gametype? Sorry for the noob question, I haven't played it yet.

    Yes. I went to the sticker machine and opened both packs. Then I played as each of them in the backyard and the achievement popped. I didn't need to go into any of the single or multiplayer modes.

    Is Haimrik a tough completion? I like the visuals, but I don't want to tackle anything challenging. I cannot find any info regarding how difficult the achievements are.
