    Man, Slide Stars looks like irredeemable garbage which is bad news for me, seeing as I just LOVE irredeemable garbage games.

    That trailer for Orangeblood rips, I think I want that and it hasn't been on sale before.
    I also love garbage, and Slide Stars was far better than it had any right to be. Aside from the cringe-worthy cast of influencers, I had a blast completing it.

    Quite a lot here I'm interested in grabbing. Definitely Sinner and Momodora after missing out when they were on Game Pass.

    I really don't know if they'll ever go GWG, but 5$ for 8 games in Castlevania Anniversary Collection seems like a steal

    Edit: Just checked, it's just 5 games
    No, you were correct the first time. It's 8 games in the Castlevania collection. Maybe you looked up the Contra list? That one has 5 games (10 if you count the different ports included).
    Ah, so I was. Thanks toast

    Nice, thanks for sharing! The trailer makes it look like some mobile trash that would sell boosters or have you watch a video for more time on a level. Time to buy!

    Dragon's Dogma is one of my top 5 favorite games of all-time and $10 is an absolute steal. Not a grindy completion or anything either and anything you missed can be done in NG+ easily. 10000/10, would recommend. 😊

    I have a really hard time saying no to any game that goes on sale for 99 cents.
    You will probably regret it later.

    It's unlikely that are coming to any of these subs.

    I already bought all 3 Konami collections on previous sale at 75% off.
    They are all worth it.

    The 3rd one have Konami Arcade shooter classics like Life Force and Nemesis / Salamander.

    I agree. Absolutely amazing game. I played the 360 and xbox one versions. It's definitely in my top 3 favorite games. Whoever hasn't played it is missing out.

    Huh. Definitely a what to buy kind of week as said above. Nothing crazy sticking out but plenty of AAAs at a nice price. Thinking of picking up the Konami Classics titles.

    Curse of the Dead Gods is currently showing its normal price on the store pages, seems to be region-independent (checked mine and US). Definitely gonna pick it up when it actually shows its sale price though, This is a better price than what I was asking for Curse of the Dead Gods ($20 AUD).

    Despite the massive backlog, I am tempted to finally pick up Red Dead 2. Ultimate edition worth it or just useless crap? For $5 I'll probably pick it up anyway.
    Story: It is 100% useless extras although you get an extra mission to rob a bank. But you'll get to rob banks anyway and you will get a lot of money by just playing the game. Everything is dirt cheap in story mode and you get no help for the rarest achievements where it would actually matter. To put it in perspective: You get to rob a bank very early in game, right after the first two intro chapters. That will get you $2000. The best gun in the game costs $135. Ammo and healing is essentially free by looting enemies and killing animals randomly. When you complete the game you'll get $40.000. If you use guides you can get a serious amount of money (few hundred dollars) in certain missions right away. Just a note: while you can replay missions any time, the game only counts your first playthrough "legit". I mean when you first play a mission you get to keep everything. But when you replay it then nothing carries over from it except a better rank.

    Online: Online was made to sell micro transactions so anything you get must worth a lot, right? Not really. The only bonus that might have a considerable positive effect on your gameplay is the XP boost until rank 25 and even that is debatable. You see in RDR2 Online the main concern is not XP but $ and gold. Everything is inflated to ridiculous levels in online to annoy you enough to buy something for real money. Missions pay you a few bucks and you have to collect gold in 0.01 amounts. Until the end of last year there was a trick to get essentially infinite money in online by using a COLLECTOR MAP that told you where are the most valuable treasure on the map every day. You will find it in Google. Since then Rockstar realized too many people skip their scummy practices this way and ruined the payouts a lot, but it is probably still the best way to get ahead. As for XP, doing bounty missions with friends was the best way to get it. All these missions/roles require 25 gold bars to start it so you either get it by doing daily busywork or there is a "cheap" real money 25 gold bars bundle in the shop. I would argue that buying that instead of the ultimate edition gets you more benefit than anything the UE can offer. Because if you don't play a role then all the other "missions" building up to it just waste your time with their next to nothing payouts. As for the horse you get, there was a very cheap (free?) horse when I played the game with almost the best stats available for everyone.

    Sounds absolutely bonkers but I'll get Contra Rogue Corps just because

    (Need a ratio boost lmao, hosting sessions for the MP later)

    Also for people whom love Nes era Metal Gears, try Unmetal absolute banger of a game, have many fond memories of it playing it on the PS Vita

    There’s a lot of stuff I’d have bought if I didn’t own it already on sale this time around. The number of JRPGs on sale makes me hope that perhaps today is the days Steins;Gate 0 or Yomi wo Saku Hana will finally go on sale on the Japanese store. My waiting finally paid off a while back for Death Mark, so I can only hope.
    ???????!

    Does "Death Mark" have English text?
