I'm sure I can get a couple others around every once in a while to play, but would likely want to play a good amount with just the lady. Is two players sufficient for fun (albeit with the caveat that it's probably less fun?)?

I'm not sure about the first one but most of the games in the second one are 3+ players

Not sure if anyone else noticed this, but please change the color scheme of the dark blue words--it starts to blend in with the TA dark theme and harder to read. Thanks dance
Seconded.

LOL! Those prices on the Rockstar games are just too funny. $20 for RDR? I already have all of them so I'm not disappointed. Thanks for the laugh.

I'll get Back to the Future and Game of Thrones.
Same boat; be nice to play a Telltale game with 'real' achievements!! Game of Thrones has always peaked my interest so now is as good a time as any!!

Man those rockstar sales are awful.

Can anybody recommend battlefield hardline? That's the second time I've seen it at that price and I kinda don't wanna pass on it again. And I don't care about the achievements, just look at my comp %. laugh
Why would you not just get EA access.
Only £20 and you get that and BF4 and loads of other games.

Cheap either way tho i guess.

Another Rockstar sale, but this time the deals are really poor.

To those wondering why GTA V, a game that first came out in 2013 on last-gen consoles is still at a high price it's because Rockstar Games is confident that people will buy it. It's one of the definitive games of this and last generation. As GTA Online has continuous support for the current-gen platforms, it's not like the game is dead. I'm sure Rockstar Games are making far more money now with all the online content. People paying these current prices are the reason why they still keep the price high. As time progresses, I'm sure they'll ease it further but not by a lot. They're a business, so are aiming for maximizing revenue. With games that don't sell well, the prices can be set lower to at least get more people buying.

The Game of Thrones on sale isn't the Telltale game. It is a retail RPG.

Because I don't play a lot of sports games and $4.50 is a small price to pay for an okay game. I've definitely paid more for less. Haha.

No, but Back to the Future is ;)
He's not a man. He's the holy Half-Dead who has seen the Underverse and returned with powers you can't imagine.

Hate to be the one to point it out but GTA V is on sale every month it seems.
