    I recall REUS looking decent when it came out but forgot about it till now. Its dang dirt cheap but no forum or clip activity in a long time. So, is it playable? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Buy your digital games/DLC from your favorite Mixer streamer, it really helps support them.

    I enjoyed the game for a bit, but the "crafting" system (for lack of a better term) that is required to upgrade your villages with new plants/animals/minerals is really byzantine, unintuitive and not well explained.

    It's really a game that you have to sit there with a tablet or phone open to the game's wiki and pause every few minutes to figure out the recipes that lead to ability + resource = upgrade.

    They pitch it as a "have fun and try out different combinations to unlock new things", but in reality, it's a game that you can't possibly progress far without a walkthrough due to randomness of combinations, long upgrade trees, time limits, gatekeeping of abilities actually available to you and very limited space available to actually place resources.

    I was enjoying it for a while, but then the game started crashing back to the dashboard menu incessantly at a certain point, which was devastating once I was playing 60-90 minute timed games that I couldn't return to.

    That was the point I gave up on it for good and it's so old I don't think it's been supported by the devs for years.

    Why is it a constant to have the game bundled with the DLC on sale and not, then, have them separately as well?


    A patten ive seen for a while, makes me spend less. But my completion % takes a knock.

    That looks like a pretty good list.
    but ...

    GTA 5 (6 year old epic) $15
    Hasbro Pack (85 year board) $16

    Does anyone know anything about the Castlevania Collection? I checked on site for a review and there is none. I remember playing most of them back in the day, but was just curious about the full package here. $8 seems like a good deal to me, but I figure I’d check with the community first.
