    Pixel Piracy: "Quick review and a warning.

    Easy 800G, last 200 is proving tricky.

    Game was good for the first 10-12 hours or so. It was fun raiding islands and building up my crew of pirates. However I am now on my 3rd legendary pirate encounter and the game has lagged up so badly that It's taken me 3+ hours to get near to beating him and I'm still not quite there yet.

    This is a major flaw, so if you don't want to spend 3 hours grinding away at a boss due to lag/memory leak (as they call it on Steam) then I'd avoid this."

    Snagged and completed Factotum 90 and Rocket League from that whole list from 2 weeks. Not bad

    Rocket League is super fun but I already got 34/44 achievements and am almost done with the game. If you don't play for fun and just achievements, should be an easy 1,000. I played 6 hours so far but 4 of those were just for fun.

    Would love DSIII but that price is too high here in AUS.

    I bought Layers of fear when it was in preview. Do I need to uninstall and reinstall this game to get out of preview?

    "This game is not available in Australasia."

    Uhh, where in the world is Australasia?

    Also, Zoo Tycoon/ScreamRide fun pack is $29.99, not $49.99.

    It's a term often used to reffer to Australia, Melanesia y New Zeland (Some times a couple more countries)

    Ah, yes, I was wondering how long it would take them to release a bundle of all the Assassin's Creed Chronicles games. $24.99 is exactly what I expected the price would be, too. Well, time to wait for the inevitable 50% sale. After the mess that was Unity and the lackluster reviews I've seen of Syndicate, I'll gladly wait to play these three.

    They look interesting, though.

    Unity and Syndicate were both amazing games. I didn't jump on Unity upon release. I waited until it was fixed before purchasing it. There were never any big issues with Syndicate though. They couldn't afford to screw up two in a row.
    I'm waiting for a sale on the season pass for Syndicate before I start any of the DLC though. Hoping that comes around sometime soon, as that Jack the Ripper DLC looks very interesting.
