    Tempted by Don't Starve Together, just wonder if it makes a good co-op game. It's hard finding ones that aren't just shooters. :/

    Has the “big summer sale” happened yet?
    Curious about this as well...
    Yes that was like 2 weeks ago
    Oof, then not much was for sale on my wishlist, if that was this summer’s large sale.
    The big summer sale is usually towards the end of July, like the last week or so of the month. The sale 2 weeks ago is what would have been the E3 sale like it was last year
    Looking at previous years it seems you're correct! There's an E3-sale, which is what we got two weeks ago, and then there's a bigger summer sale towards July (usually called "Ultimate Game Sale").

    2019: 16th of July until 29th of July
    2018: 19th of July until 30th of July
    2017: 30th of June until 17th of July
    2016: 5th of July until 11th of July

    GRID + DLC for only $15? I know it wasn't totally well received but can anyone comment on the game for that price?
    I find it really bland and boring, both with a wheel and a controller. It's just sterile and lifeless, nothing like the wheel-to-wheel fest they make it out to be.

    I love codies, so it hurts me to say it, but it's just pure filler.
    Hmm that's a shame. Looks fun from all the trailers. Maybe if it ever becomes free, I'll give it a go. Thanks toast
    Rated 3.8/5... not bad actually...
    I'm interested in FPS - 30 or 60 on Xbox One S?
    I’d jump all over it. $15 for a racing game, which I bought when it was $30 so this stings a little considering I haven’t even played it yet. So it might be as bland as stated, but I’m pretty surprised it’s so cheap right now.
    Always number 2.

    Harry Potter Collection is 75% off but it is still 39.99€? 75% of 40 to me is still 10€?

    I feel stupid for buying Grid Ultimate physical for 40€ a few months back.

    Oh ok yeah for this year then it’ll probably coincide with Microsoft’s big first party event around mid July.

    Everybody will enjoy whatever they enjoy. One person's experience is no guarantee of anothers.

    Only played it on X, which is 60hz

    Yea! More Lego sales!
    Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 Deluxe for under $9 sounds like a winner to me!
    Annoying since I bought it during the big sale for $15
    I did as well. I've already requested a refund for Super Villians, Super Villians Season Pass, Super Heroes 2, and the Super Heroes 2 Season Pass.

    I explained that I'm wanting to buy the Deluxe Versions, and I'm now waiting for the request to be approved.

    They're pretty good about refunding if it's been less than 14 days since you bought it and if you haven't played the games (I think its less than 2 hours).

    I wasn't planning on spending any money this week but six Artifex games I don't own at sub-$20 CAD is too good a deal to pass up. Easy achievements aside, I like these games quite a lot.

    For anyone that has played, why does REUS have such a monster ratio? Is it difficult or just a very time consuming play? I keep wanting to check it out since it's regularly $2 or less, but an 11,000+ TA and 60-80 hour completion is daunting. Only 13 completions!

    Just Bought Adams Venture considering it's 90% off, but what's the bet it's going to end up as a GwG or on GP soon?

    Thank you all for the recommendations! Ended up going with SOMA, but might pick up a couple other cheap ones before the end of the week.

    That's what I was thinking. For $15 you get all the content and I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of it. I didn't think much of Grid 2 but I did enjoy it. Thanks for the replies toast

    angry It's 18,74€ ($21.11) here in France/Europe!!! angry
    Buy some US credit, switch region, bang. Warner Bros stuff is always cheaper in US, so always worth the little bit of effort to switch.
    Does somebody want to explain how a UK gamer can buy US credit? I used to buy it from Amazon US, but that seems to not be possible right now.

    Edit: Nevermind. Got it now.

    Middle-earth Shadow of War Definitive Edition for $15. I know the base game is on Game Pass at the moment but this is tempting for me. I haven't finished the first one but would anyone recommend this? Feels like a steal for all those Expansions even though I have Game Pass and might not play it at this particular moment.
