    I see some DLC in bundles I would have purchased if it were sold on sale separately. What a shame. I lose out on more gameplay, developers lose out on more money. Wouldn't a win/win situation be more beneficial? I really don't understand the idea of putting ONLY bundles on sale. You're only capturing the audience that's never purchased the game before and losing out on those who only want the DLC.
    I completely agree with this. However, as someone who is never in a rush to play any single game....due to an incredibly large backlog....I've learned to just wait for the complete editions (i.e., the bundles) to go on sale.

    Nothing for me apart from the Van Helsing Trilogy which looks like a good deal. Trials Rising Digital Gold Edition is still overpriced considering it doesn't include one of the DLCs (the most expensive one naturally).
    They always put the trilogy on sale, but never individually. 1 and 3 were GWG, so only need 2.
    I've noticed this too. Same goes for Scrabble. I got the Hasbro bundle with 6 games a while ago, and have been waiting for Scrabble to have a decent sale ever since (it wasn't one of the 6 games). It's never been more than 30% off since I've had it in my wishlist...and nowadays anything less than 60% off (for a sale) doesn't pique my interest.

    There’s also a Xbox Games Specials that’s going on right now. I’m seeing Deaths Door, Darksiders Gensys, bunch of Resident Evil games. Never saw a story on this.
    That was the Halloween sale

    Ugh.... I really should do Prey's online before the servers die.
    Are the servers going to be shut down for this game soon or something?
    There isn't any servers, Peer to Peer game
    Wow, I didn't know that! Now I can procrastinate another decade!

    The Stories/Omensight Bundle is a steal for under five bucks.
    I haven’t Stories yet, but Omensight was a decent little action RPG. I’d still recommend Obey Me over it, but it was interesting.
    Stories is regularly on sale for under four bucks, maybe you wanna check it out (it came before Omensight). Criminally underrated games.
    Will take a closer look at Obey Me. toast
    Because of the low playerbase i can't really tell if it's really that hard or just not played enough yet.
    I own Stories I’ve just not taken the time to start it yet.

    I can actually answer your question about Obey Me: you shouldn’t have too much trouble finishing the story on Normal. Hard Mode is really hard but the game has an excellent, rhythmic combat loop to support it, and getting S Rank on some chapters is also really difficult. However I believe the latter can be done on Easy but it may not be to your advantage as you need the enemies to drop enough spiritual energy (your “go” juice) to fuel your abilities and on Easy some enemies die before you can fill them up and force them to drop the max amount. Anyway, one of the guys on here got S rank on Hard, recently, so it’s possible. The main draw of Obey Me is the excellent combat loop and enemies and the boss battles which are varied and may leave you cursing until you figure them out.

    At some point van helsing 2 has to go on sale on its own. 1 and 3 were great and the scrooge in me won't let me buy a bundle when I own 2 games already.
    Happy Gaming

    Good discount on Gravel.
    Any input on this game?
    It's like a light DIRT 5.

    I appreciate it and its cars selection, the main problems are the AI and the crashes physics. If you like racing games you could give it a try. The DLCs are nice, no achievements but they make some base game achievements less grindy/tedious.
    Thanks. I'll probably get it.
    Dirt 5 was OK. The only really annoying thing was all these DLCs to pay.

    ^ Just get the bundle (Dirt 5). I think it was £16 when I got it.

    May as well pick up the Castle of no escape bundle. Can be used for quick gamer score for those 10000 gamer score challenges (if they ever happen again)

    What is F***ing wrong with THQ-Nordic to RAISE the price of "Legend of Kay - Anniversary" over the years, rather than drop the price? I don't know why I didn't buy it for $2.99 back in April 2017, but since then, it's been $4.49 for several iterations, then $7.99, and now $8.99. I'd have to think this is one of those titles that MS "suggests" to the publisher not to dip the price too much, since it's been $3.99 (on PC) just about everywhere, and even currently now (on PC) at Humble Store. Thanks MS & THQ-Nordic ... you're 100% legit! :-)

    As a non-American, he feels accurate. Not saying my government is any better, though.
    As an American, the description is apt, except that there's nothing amazing about it.

    Can someone explain why there are 3 versions of "We Are The Dwarves" at different prices? Does one need to buy all 3 to have the complete game? Are some DLC?
    Miles to go before I sleep, and many more Beans to dive.
