    My sympathies to anyone who gets Brothers in Arms thinking it looks like a fun completion, until they realize the achievement for playing only on 17 September was two days before this sale.
    Well fuck. I still need it on the JP copy. Wish there was a reminder or something. Doh! Until next year....
    Yeah, somebody used to do an article each month for upcoming time related achievements. I remember it from years back when I was doing the Batman AC ones.

    As for the sale... as somebody who doesn't have an X1 and only plays on 360 still (with a game now and then for Windows if they run on this dumb PC), there are no words.... well, there are but I won't say them here :P
    There's now a setting on TA to get a notification of upcoming date and time specific achievements in games you own that don't yet have the achievement unlocked.

    Yeah.... but it seriously is pretty useless for the couple games I have to be honestly. The few time based ones I still need to do involve doing things daily for an entire month on the games and that alert doesn't come up until the very last 3 days of the entire month after it's far too late. Doesn't do me a lot of good honestly by that point :P It's only helpful if the game is already in your collection too and not games you are looking at buying, as in the case mentioned in the quotes above I replied to.

    The article was a lot more helpful in my eyes considering notifications are so iffy sometimes anyway on the site and they still rely you to actually come to the site and see them. Whomever wrote the articles before just made it much easier to see any upcoming achievements for all games in a single location, owned or not.

    Get a cheap sealed physical copy of Quantum Break comes with a key of Alan Wake + both DLC, probably cheaper then this you won't get it
    This is a thing? Never heard that it came with Alan Wake. I’ve been curious about trying out Quantum Break so I’ll keep this in mind

    I just finished it yesterday. Unique, fun game that got me hyped for Control.

    The EA family bundle might be a win for me
    If all pork chops were perfect, we wouldn't have Hot Dogs!!!

    Also wondering if buying the Metro bundle is cheaper considering all I need is Exodus and DLC
    If all pork chops were perfect, we wouldn't have Hot Dogs!!!

    Yep it's supposed to be all copies even according to this article. https://www.gamesradar.com/quantum-break-alan-wake-free-back...

    I can vet this, but don't know if all copies have keys. Maybe there was a reprint that didn't have them but I do not know, but mine indeed has a key with Alan Wake and the DLCs, the game I have is an European print

    If you aren't being sarcastic, the triple pack is on sale for 30 something dollars.

    Picked up Woodle Tree Adventures. For .99 USD or equivalent, discounted 80%, why not? It might come in handy for this year's 12 Days of XMas.

    Hold up.
    LEGO Harry Potter Collection at €15.99. The Original price is €39.99. That is NOT a 80% discount!
    80% from 39.99 is 8 if my Mathematics is correct.
    There is NO stupid questions. Only stupid answers!

    This sale says Dying Light Definitive Edtion is on sale...
