    Wow, i never actually realised just how many pathetically easy games there were.

    I'll definitely be picking up a few but im gonna feel dirty while doing it laugh
    don't feel dirty about playing any of these.

    I have done 29 and own (but didn't get to) Lilith-M.

    I regret nothing.

    even Trax and Scalextric are FUN.

    just take them for what they are: a simulation of a plastic car track where the only goal is not to drive too fast off the track. no more no less.

    This is crazy! Never have I seen a sale this good on so many quick junk games, haha. Definitely cashing in some rewards points for a good 10 of them at least.

    What if a Site Rating column was added?

    I usually avoid anything below 3... there's quite a few twos and some ones among this list after clicking on all the titles.
    Another vote for this: for the mobile site it would be a big help

    (in general, I wish there were more tables where you could save your view like in Game Collection. If I could permanently customise the columns on my 'sales' page, I'd use it more and make you more money in affiliate links.)

    Picked up Ascendance, Crypt of the Serpent King, Maize, Murdered:Soul Suspect, One Night Stand, Refunct, Rememoried, Spencer, Storm Boy, The Adventures of Elena Temple, The Bridge and The Little Acre for $38.95 all Microsoft Reward Points I've cashed in in the last month. So basically a free 13k GS

    Finished Rememoried, One Night Stand and Storm Boy in a little over an hour of actual game play and it would have been shorter but I kept having to replay one of the ways to finish One Night Stand to get the picture to pop up and unlock the last trigger for the last achievement

    Also don't really dig that the episodic games get included in these a lot. The completion time is misleading (also annoying in the game collection page where some are total completion times while others are just episode 1)

    They should always be based off of base game achievements ONLY, for dlc completion times you have to press on the dlc individually and check how long that would take (which you probably know). But i do think it would be nice to see both sets of times instead of having to go figure it out (ex base game: 3 hrs, full game inc. dlc: 9 hrs) i think it would make it easier on people who would potentially want to get the full game to see how long it would actually take

    Usually, I will always mention games like LiS in the roundup for this very reason. And I'll point out the fact that it's still a very easy completion, it's just going to take about 10 hours in total. I think I must have skipped over it today for some reason. sleep

    I got Scalextrix. It's still got that bug where the game gets stuck loading every time you win a race. So you have to force quit the game after each race. roll

    Not sure if anyone's noticed but Scalextrics and Trax are the same game...

    I managed to get both games and I'm from the UK...

    Super easy but super annoying 2000g

    Oh I do know but not entirely what I meant for instance games I own. GotG, Batman, Borderlands, Michonne, A New Frontier, both GoT, LiS and BTS and the 360 version of TWD are all in the 1-2 or 3 on game collection while TWD2, TWAU, the One version of TWD, Jurassic Park and BttF are all 8-10 or 12-15. There is no pattern.

    Probably the fact you were juggling 30 today not a handful or even 10.

    This is true... I'm playing SCALEXTRICS now and have to quit... Luckily TRAX didn't have this issue

    Well those are all 1 list no? Even if they were dlc when they first released, in those versions they are all considered base game, so it makes sense to have longer times; there is more to the base game

    This sale is boss. I have a real problem though...

    Storm Boy it's easily worth a full star more than NORTH. NORTH is NOT 3/5. It's a mess. Storm Boy it's short and sweet (maybe too short) and a lot of charm.

    Pick both up for sure, but Storm Boy >>>>>>>> NORTH.


    Trax/Scalextric are pure shite. You'll pick it up fast enough, but boring AF. Again, come for the achievements, stay for the uninstall.

    To be fair... mostly anything > NORTH.

    Just looked through them all and it seems you're right. I never even knew they were full releases and not just the same game on the new system. I just overlook whatever it says if it's an episodic and throw it in the 8-10 range to be safe.

    To be fair, 8-10 is usually accurate for episodic games, but the times are always based off of the base game only

    Played Storm Boy with my 6yo and she loved it to bits. Really nice little game for small people, and really lovely animation and tone.
