    It is gamers in general.

    I used to be a games journalist. Got out of that game when I realised that gamers are probably the most entitled people on the planet. Well, that and the death threats if you don't conform to the rhetoric that gamers want to push at that moment in time (gamers love to make up facts to prove a point)

    TAs trackers must be broke

    That is EA / Game Pass discount, it is not a sale price.

    Why is TA picking up this and not Judgment, Rims Racing, Outer Worlds Bundle etc?

    I don’t think I’ve gotten a wish list discount notification in over a month.

    Didn't know I Am Fish was only $20 to begin with, probably grab it if it hits $5.

    Yeah, and considering $63 is an increase in price, not a discount.

    Still no mention of the last Chance sale which is basically the countdown sale extended, but inappropriate as some sales gone, and new ones introduced, like Judgment and Rims Racing, not listed on TA in any recent sales nor here.

    TA last reported Judgment on sale in Oct, but is on sale now

    Judgment Forum

    What else is missing?
    I was actually looking for a list of any Last Chance sales that were new or better discounts… anyone know of one?

    Played Episode 1 just recently. Achievement-wise it's thanks to the concise Walkthrough a quick and easy 1000G. Two playthroughs required, but the second run, with everything missable already taken care of, took only around an hour.

    The game itself is a nice throwback to classic jrpgs, checking boxes like turn-based battle, stoic hero and all that. It just works, lol. The chibi styled characters are not for everyone (how?!?^_^), I found them adorable, overall graphics and sound were nice. There's not that much overly exciting happening, but the potential for something bigger is there.

    I think for five bucks it's totally fine, no hidden gem nor a dumpster fire. When Episode 2 hits the five buck range as well I think I'll get that too.
    Hope this helps, keeping it short is hard ;) cheers.
    Have a nice day

    TA only seems to list ones which are backwards compatible, which is annoying. Does make sense in some ways I suppose.

    I nominate these two posts as biggest babies of the week.

    I'll be picking up the Light Fairytale Ep1 game.

    Me neither. I think they must be broken at the moment.
