That's a non-argument on a site full of people who have autistic levels of dedication to improving a variety of account statistics.

I spent 600 hours on Inversion to complete the game, and it is the biggest piece of shit I have ever had the misfortune of playing.
My opinions are often unpopular and acerbic.

^LOL, exactly this. I'm working on 1st in the world in Aerial combat, so no matter how shit any of them are, they will be destroyed. Only Heroes, Ace Combat AH, Starpoint and E:D remain.

I've played every Aerial Combat available (save Minisquadron, a WP game that got delisted before I had the chance), and Rebel Galaxy is one of the worst ever. Even Project Sylpheed, which was a seriously boring grind, didn't compare to how pointless Rebel Galaxy is.

If you want a good space game I'd suggest Starpoint Gemini 2, Iron Sky, or, if you have 5,000 hours and the patience of a saint; Elite Dangerous is the most sophisticated and enjoyable space sim available atm.

I'll definitely be buying 'Everspace' however if the sale is at least 20%, it looks quite good. Looking forward mainly to Air Missions: HIND though.

I'm already playing ED and loving every minute of it. You seem to be in the minority for Rebel Galaxy, though. Steam and Metacritic (both Pro and User reviews) love this game.

Titanfall 2 is my #1 priority, after that I'm looking to pick up Minecraft Story Mode, The Walking Dead Season 2, Manual Samuel. I'm also considering Doom and Forza Horizon 3, but I doubt I'll have the money for all of that.
i would just rent Titanfall 2, its basically all single player achievements which with the exception of the hard run and the gauntlet run are quite easy. the story is beaten in probably 6-7 hours. i paid 29USD for mine and i feel ripped off personally, i have actually logged more hours in the last 2 weeks for Titanfall 1 then Titanfall 2.
I don't have anywhere near to rent and don't want to sign up to be a member for a one time rental. Plus, they'll likely add achievements in the future with updates, so at least I'd have it, when it does. I know what you mean though. I know I'm definitely taking a risk on this, with the little money I have to spend this year, for only 10-15 hours for a completion, it may not be worth $30. But it is the only major AAA game this year that actually interests me aside from Doom and Forza Horizon 3, and I only really want FH3 for Blizzard Mountain which I don't have another $25 for.

I know it's paradoxical, but I've been working on 1st in the world for Aerial Combat since 2010, so the very limited time I have to game is mainly focused on the final remaining games to get there. I get about 1 hour a night if I'm lucky, a session on a weekend and that's it these days. I got two weeks off for Xmas though, gonna finish Starpoint and maybe play a game I actually want to play; Hitman.

Well, same here. We like what we like. I've actually tried Starpoint Gemini 2 and can't get into it.

I just ordered Watch_Dogs 2 from Target yesterday for $29.99. At least I get a retail copy. Suck it, digital sales.

Hope the sales improve. Seems like the deals were better in the previous years, Bully for example was regularly discounted to 2,99 the previous years and until this spring. Afterwards it has been on sale for between 5,99 and 8. I remember a few years ago, where I bought a shitload of games in the holidays, dlc as well.

I hate people like you, probably the reason why good new games/ips are dying, complaining about a fantastic game that you only paid half price for.

God knows, how you would of coped back when games could be beaten in half hour to an hour or so (rpgs not included) these games cost a lot more too!

The entitlement is unreal, we are so lucky with some advanced games are now

Like others, I'm hoping for indie sales. Really enjoyed Oxenfree, and I wouldn't have gotten it if it hadn't been discounted to $10 in the last sale.

With Halo Wars 2 coming and Games with Gold, the amount I'm willing to spend on AAA games has drastically decreased. These days a single good multiplayer game is enough to sate me.
