    If I had to take a gander as to why Tell Me Why is free, and from the looks of it for 30 days

    It must have to do with the fact that June is considered Pride Month, so having Tell Me Why given out free might be a tie-in to celebrate that

    Since it clearly says 30 days left for that sale, and we are pretty much June 1st already, a giveaway of a game heavily influenced by LGBTQ+ topics would be the perfect fit for this month

    I’d say this is a pretty good guess.

    Bears, Beats, Battlestar Galactica.

    Battlefield 4 premium edition for 6 bucks is a steal.

    I'm assuming only the first chapter of Tell Me Why is supposed to be free, and that's an error.

    Looks like it does download the whole season. Better grab it while you can!
    I'm willing to bet the whole thing is purposely free because June is Gay Month.
    By that logic I guess well be getting DOA Beach Volleyball free in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. wink

    The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker is my favorite FMV game of all time. Really great acting and intriguing characters. Very original and fun. You play a psychiatrist interviewing patients about a doctor that was murdered by one of them.

    I suggest a blind playthrough first, then mop up the rest on a 2nd playthrough with a guide for what you missed.

    Try watching a YouTube video first to decide if it's something you'll like. It likely only takes 5 minutes to know if you'll love or hate it.

    Does anyone know the last time Goat Simulator DLC was on sale?

    A fairly weak week. That usually only happens when they have a bigger sale coming, but I can't think of anything soon, other than maybe an E3 sale?

    Wow literally bought Void Bastards like 4 hours ago to get the game pass discount before it left...
    They do this a lot.

    I did the same with Kingdom Come.

    You should be able to get a refund pretty easily if you explain why you want one. The gave me one for Kingdom come and then I was albe to buy the super ultimate edition, like 5 DLC with base game for 2 bucks cheaper than the normal edition that I bought hours before.
    Cool story bro.

    I think I will be picking up Brunch Club and Splash Blast Panic this week.

    Oh, and Tell Me Why, because who can pass up free games?

    Tell Me Why has been free for some time I think.
    Grand Slam Tennis 2 world #1

    Poor week. Finally picked up the Butcher as it's the only thing I'm slightly interrested in.

    Sometimes I wonder if people think before they post.

    It sucks that Dragon Age Inqusition GOTY hasn't gone on sale to £6 again. It was on sale regularly for £6-£7. Now Dragon Age Inquisition is easily accessible to GPU subscribers, it hasn't dropped below £9.99.

    Can someone explain to me why sometimes there are two prices on a same link-button? Thanks.

    Once again, nothing for me this week. Already finished Tell Me Why through Game Pass, but it's good to own it now, even if replayability is near zero. It's written 'price sale ends in 30 days', strange.
    First price is the Microsoft store sales price. The other one is the EA Play price.
    Thanks. But I don't see the interest. 75% off with GOLD vs 3% off with EA. So ridiculous...
