    Deep Rock Galactic is really fun! Highly recommend. Will take many hours to complete but super fun to play with 4 friends.

    Didn't take long to look through the sales. Usually I can have a coffee and a good read. This week my kettle didn't finish boiling.

    Right?! Is this about to get delisted or something?
    Yeah great deal. I remember playing the 1st one a while ago. I don't think ill even play this one at least anytime soon but for $3 I might as well get it just in case I ever do.
    Cheap enough to play it if you are interested but I have to warn you it is nowhere near to Crimes & Punishments. The focus is completely different (you can walk around and follow people in various "districts" - mostly the same buildings) and the cases are extremely simplified. I think there was only one case that was actually interesting but they ruined it with making one step ridiculously complicated and the last puzzle is so long you should do it with a guide. The overarching story doesn't make sense, it is like they cut parts of it out. I played C&P without a guide and it was an absolute blast figuring out the cases and every single of them was interesting (disappearing train, guy killed in a closed room with nothing to kill him, etc not to mention you could accuse various people). Played this too and it was more like an action game, with barely any puzzles (two is frustrating) and a bland story.

    Valhalla Gold for the price of the base game. Pretty poor for people who paid full price for it when none of the DLC has been released yet. But I am not one of those people.
    Live and learn I suppose.

    Wasn't both the first Sherlock and Devil's Daughter on gwg? Swear I have Devil's Daughter but I don't remember buying it.
    Looks like it was GWG in Nov of 2019. Apparently I never downloaded it but I can accept that for its price now.
    Truth, I was kicking myself when I didn't get it gwg then...glad to be able to scoop for just a few bucks!

    Well it has been free with gold so maybe they use it to get people Interested in the series, like if you liked one you might be more inclined to buy others..?
    Though if they read HUN playmore's comment they'll know that the other are better hehe wave

    Went with OG Assassins Creed. Does any one know if I can play the enhanced version on the Series X? Havent found anything about a special version which needs to be bought in order to do that.

    I'm going to bite soon, if not this sale then on the next one. Although I didn't complete Mudrunner I really enjoyed what I played of it. This seems bigger and better in almost every way.

    Is it worth spending extra money for Snowrunner Premium edition/season pass?

    If you liked Mudrunner, then yes. 40% is a very decent discount considering the game just came out. I usually buy a game I would like to play when it is on sale for at least 25%.

    So apparently they've been putting a single Pinball FX3 pack on sale for the past few weeks and I am just now noticing.
    Whoops.
    Hopefully I won't have to wait another 2 years for William's pack 5 to go on sale again.
