    Bad North is awesome, Crash Drive 3 is very fun but I tried Bleed 2 and have not been very fond of the controls, besides trying. It has some quirky button layout. Perhaps playing for 2 hours will join your muscle memory
    games are almost the same thing. I purchased the same bundle a while ago and I regret it

    Yeah, for sure re: Bleed, my first playthrough was super sloppy but once it clicks, it just feels so good. That first gameplay clip in the linked trailer shows just how slick it can be once you get to grips with everything.

    I will either get Bad North now or later. Since it left GP, this is the cheapest it has been.

    If you want to interest me in a game, just make it Viking themed in some way.

    I LOVED Bad North! Not played anything like it, but it looked really cute so I gave it a try... and sure enough it did indeed, erm, suck me in. shock Took a lot of effort but I did finally 100% the achievements, including Folk Hero... though it did reduce me to tears of both rage and despair along the way. Lol.

    I really recommend it - especially if you like games you can play a little bit at a time. The difficult Folk Hero playthrough was 61 interconnected islands, but you can just do one or two islands in a session if you like, and come back tomorrow for a few more. I ADORED it! :-D

    I’ll be picking up Bad North. I’d intended to play it when it was on GamePass but missed the opportunity before it was rotated out. Thanks to this good discount, I’ll have a second chance. smile

    I meant to play it while it was in GP too, but I spent too much time trying to play through the mostly forgettable easy GP games. The consensus here and elsewhere is that it’s definitely worth buying.

    I bought the Pure Snooker Bundle at 65% off and Star Wars Episode I Racer at 60% off with my rewards points so £0.00 toast
    Once my broken wrist heals I should be able to play them....

    Gaijin Charenji 1 - Kiss or Kill for 99 cents is a no-brainer. One of the most crazy and creative gaming experiences I have ever had.

    As Luke says, at 85% off, the 3.29 USD Digerati Couch Co-op Vol. 2 is just too good a deal to pass up.
